Julia Salazar, the Ocasio-Cortez clone is unable to tell the truth about her past
American Thinker ^ | 09/12/2018 | Rick Moran

A New York state senate race that features a democratic socialist cut from the same cloth as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has become the most entertaining political race in the country.

Julia Salazar began her campaign claiming to be a Colombian immigrant of working class origins, a Jew who supports abortion rights, a graduate of Columbia University, a pro-choice advocate, and a supporter of a Palestinian state.

The reality is slightly different.

New York Daily News:

Salazar’s campaign materials had implied she graduated from Columbia University, but when questioned by the New York Times, she said she had completed her coursework but never graduated.

During her time at Columbia, Salazar — now running as a progressive Democrat of Jewish faith who supports abortion rights and the people of Palestine — was a Christian right-to-life activist who supported Israel. While she had campaigned as a Colombian immigrant, she was born in the United States to an American mother and Colombian father. Her statements about a working class upbringing have also been called into question by statements from her brother and mother who said the family did not struggle financially.

In fact, the family owned a home next door to Mets legend Keith Hernandez — and Salazar was embroiled in a bizarre legal battle with the ballplayer and his ex-wife that included a claim of an affair, which Salazar has denied, and a libel lawsuit involving accusations of drug use, bank theft and pilfered Pottery Barn vouchers.

One leftist political party has withdrawn their support of Salazar, citing her lying about her academic record. The Citizens Union party pulled its endorsement:

Democrats just “say stuff”.

If it sounds good, that is sufficient justification. The concept of “truth” is meaningless to these people.

They’ve always done it; but the Clintons did it so often and blatantly that it became a paramount trait of the left. The Clintons taught everyone that just talking about/saying things was equivalent to actually achieving.

Regardless Obama, I never saw the political tone in the country change so much and so fast for the worse as when the Clintons were in the White House.

So, after a couple of years in the State Senate, and then a couple of years in the U.S. Senate, She should run for President. Hope and Change!

She grew up terribly underprivileged. She had to learn to sail on a crappy 35 foot sloop.

HA! I just googled "Julia Salazar for state senate" and you're right. Is it wrong that I find the little deranged lying marxist attractive?

Look this up when you get a chance.

All of these young socialists are part of this PAC.

It’s another Soros-paid and organized effort. Goal is to replace the older, less radical liberal Dems with “true believers”.

It was the dawn of the Politics of Personal Destruction, The Ends Justifies The Means and The Moral Double Standards.

I think the main problem with the Clintons is that they didn’t really *believe* in anything, except their lust for personal power.

I’ve heard of that outfit but I know more about a similar one called “Justice Democrats”. Lots of crossover on their candidate lists.

BNC though is “non-partisan” lol, I was aware they ran a religious left marxist as a Republican in Arkansas, thankfully he was crushed.

The prick just tweeted this

Wait. North and South Carolina are both red states. God is supposed to love them more, right? Why would he punish them?!?
