Skip to comments.Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly defend Ocasio-Cortez: She's 'trying to do what she believes is right'

Former Fox News hosts and conservative commentators Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck offered praise for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after she knocked off Democratic Rep. Joseph Crowley (N.Y.) in a primary earlier this week.
"I have heard some Republicans deride Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and I think thats a mistake," O'Reilly tweeted this week. "She won by outworking long time Democratic Congressman Joseph Crowley and seems to care more about people than power. A good thing for any politician."
O'Reilly, who was fired from Fox News in 2017 after sexual harassment complaints against him were reported, complimented Ocasio-Cortez's voter outreach but made clear he disagrees with her policy views, adding "socialism never works. Ask Venezuela."
Beck, who left Fox in 2011, echoed his former colleague's thoughts and expressed appreciation for Ocasio-Cortez's honesty.
"@Ocasio2018 seems genuine and honestly trying to do what she believes is right. I completely disagree with her solutions, but she is listening to her community. I would rather debate an open socialist than those who hide what they believe," Beck tweeted.
Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist and former organizer for Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) 2016 presidential campaign, embraced Beck's comments.
"Thank you, @glennbeck. We may disagree, but I sincerely appreciate the good faith," she tweeted.

I hope Glen brought his chalkboard
Watch out for this lady, she’s a baby Obama.
What she believes is right against what the law says is right - her feelings count more.
Why would I care if a socialist is sincere? If a person is a sincere socialist it probably just means they’re a defective human being. Regrettable, but a problem, not something to celebrate.
Will someone tell these dick weeds that Hitler did what HE thought was right too.
And WE THE PEOPLE are doing what WE think is right by calling out these far-left freakazoids who want to disarm, rob, and enslave American citizens.
There will be bloodshed before this yahoo gets her way to turn the United States into Venezuela.
Hitler tried to do what he thought was tight too. And stalin. Judges 17;6, 21:2, proverbs
>>We may disagree, but I sincerely appreciate the good faith
Choosing an ideology that ALWAYS leads to poverty, loss of freedom, and death can not be in “good faith”. The most “well-meaning” Socialist is still the enemy of all that is good.
...in other words, a fraud.
I think it's time to encourage Crowley to go 3rd party. That's what they'd do to us in the same situation.
He needs to shove it up his :.
>>Will someone tell these dick weeds that Hitler did what HE thought was right too.
And a Socialist too.
She is a baby Obama, but at least she’s OPEN about being a radical lefty. That will NOT work in her favour. Obama slipped up a few times, but he fooled a lot of people, for the most part.
Apparently BOR wants to have sex with her.
It’s the same chaos strategy that the left frequently uses. Subtly praise and support the opposition’s most extreme candidates to split the enemy party.
I’m sure Hitler and Mao did what they thought was right too. Even Hillary. That’s a pretty low bar, even for politicians.
Beck is a complete fool!
There’s no one who doesn’t do what he thinks is right at any given moment in time.
