Don't Be Afraid of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Social Democracy

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been in the spotlight thanks to relentless attacks by the right wing, Fox News, and even members of Congress. Joining her in generating controversy by her presence in Congress is Rep. Ilhan Omar, who every week is the target of hyperbolic attacks on her race, and religion, as well as her views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Neither Rep. Omar nor Ocasio-Cortez are backing down on their progressive views, but one caller is worried such brazen attitudes could hurt Democrats in the future, especially as the 2020 Democratic primary nears.

Mark Pocan answers these questions and more with Thom Hartmann.
