The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

When the Georgia GOP voters made a serious mistake and used a primary election to nominate a hard right-wing judge named Roy Moore who apparently had a predilection for teenage girls, the trained hamsters of the main stream media had a field day. With glee, they demanded that every national GOP politician disavow Moore's extreme views. Most did. Fair enough.

A new hard-left Democratic superstar named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated nationally recognized Democratic Congressman Joe Crowley in the primary for New York's 14th Congressional District (and will win the deep blue district easily in November). You'd think the trained hamsters in the media would ask every Democrat to comment on and endorse or disavow the young "Democratic Socialist's" rather extreme positions on education, housing, taxation, immigration, and of course, Israel.

As a hard-left follower of Bernie Sander's socialist "solutions" and a poster child for identity politics, Ocasio-Cortez tells us bluntly that she'll vote to impeach Donald Trump, even though there's not a shred of evidence of an impeachable offense—because ... Trump Derangement Syndrome.

In the long tradition of utopian leftists who are really good at moral preening along with promising free stuff to naive voters, Ocasio-Cortez tells us she wants "free" college education and "free" healthcare for all, paid for, of course, by "taxing the rich."

She is an advocate of catch and release for illegal immigrants (sorry, "undocumented migrants") along with the abolishment of ICE—essentially, she's a champion of open borders.

And like a growing majority on the Left, she is virulently anti-Israel, preferring instead Hamas, a violent terrorist organization (elected by the "oppressed Palestinian people") that is anti-democratic, anti-gay, anti-human rights, anti-women, anti-Christian and of course anti-Semitic.

So ... following in the tradition of the media's treatment of Republicans after Roy Moore won the Senate nomination from Georgia, every national Democrat should be questioned repeatedly on Ocasio-Cortez' positions, and more importantly, asked if they support them.

Betcha it doesn't happen.

Oh ... BTW ... a significant percentage of Georgia Republicans, concerned about his extremist views, voted against Roy Moore in 2017 and thankfully, he lost the election in a deep red state. Georgia voters showed character in the end and elected a Democrat. Gotta wonder whether any Democrat voters, concerned about Ocasio-Cortez' extreme leftist positions, will do the same. Nah .. not a chance.
