Ocasio-Cortez Joins Chorus of Critics Condemning Coup in Bolivia That Forced Out Socialist President

From the article:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday became the second U.S. lawmaker to join the growing chorus of voices across the globe who are condemning the resignation of Bolivia's socialist President Evo Morales as a "coup."

As Common Dreams reported earlier Monday, "Morales was forced to resign Sunday under threat from the nation's military, police forces, and violent right-wing protestors." The resignation followed Morales' announcement that he would hold new elections after the U.S.-dominated Organization of American States (OAS) questioned his October victory.

Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman Democrat from New York, tweeted in both Spanish and English Monday afternoon, "What's happening right now in Bolivia isn't democracy, it's a coup."

2. Agreed.

She has the clear potential to be a leading progressive voice in the Democratic Party.

3. Morales is Maduro 2.0.

His election was a farce, a fraud.

Just because he's a socialist doesn't make him a "good guy."

7. Just because they oppose U.S."Interests" doesn't make them a "bad guy".

"Socialists" are never good enough for U.S. interests. Of course, Temer and Macri
were never "bad" enough and Bolsonaro isn't "bad" enough for the same interests.
Mrs. Greenspan tells us so on the M$M.

6. One reason for hope for the future.

The US hates Morales. There can be no socialism in the US back yard.

Cuba, Chile, Bolivia, Venezuela.

10. Very true.

Colonialists are more comfortable when the indigenous "obstacles to progress" are not a factor.
