New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez complains that she’s “one of the most hated people in America,” despite the fact her popularity is so immense she “can’t go outside anymore.”

So how bad does Ocasio-Cortez have it? In a recent interview with New York Magazine, she whined, “I can’t go outside anymore. I miss being able to go out to dinner. I miss anonymity. I have to send my boyfriend out to get groceries. There has been a shift in chores.”

The interview wasn’t limited to how rough fame has been on her. The leader of far-left wing of the Democratic party also used her bully pulpit to lament the fact that she is despised by the president and other conservatives. “I know I am also one of the most hated people in America,” she said. But the freshman congresswoman is not without a theory as where the hatred stems from: viz., racism. The hardcore socialist said that her age and skin color make her a target, calling each factor “a tattoo-on-my-face kind of situation.”

It apparently hasn’t occurred to her that one reason she is so disliked is her stated positions. Examples include her claims that the U.S. is running “concentration camps” at the border or calling the president’s killing an Iranian terrorist an “act of war.”

Nor is it just Republicans who disapprove of the New York socialist. Stunts like her storming Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office in the company of a bunch of youth protesters early in her term or more recently declaring that Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden isn’t progressive enough to be a true Democrat haven’t won her any popularity awards from her fellow Democrats. She has called other moderate candidates the “Tea Party of the left.”
