Elizabeth Heng is a Republican. She made that clear in a video her PAC ran during last night’s Democratic debate. It drew heavy criticism from the left as Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s picture was burned in the beginning of the video to reveal death and misery from Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge genocide, of which Heng’s father almost fell victim.
Meanwhile, many on the right are cheering the bold statement against socialism, which Ocasio-Cortez unabashedly supports. “This is the face of socialism and ignorance,” the video begins just before the image of Ocasio-Cortez burns away.
ABC drew fire for airing the ad, but Democrats should be thankful they did. If it had been censored, chances are it would have been given even more attention than it already has. But instead of sitting back and letting her tribe defend her, AOC decided to chime in with an irrational response that will highlight the video even further.
When all you have is a hammer, everything becomes a nail. For AOC, all she has is the race card, so of course she accuses this video of somehow appealing to… white supremacists?
Nothing says “white supremacy” more than “daughter of Cambodian immigrants who escaped the Khmer Rouge.” https://t.co/mDRRaXcNIu

AOC labeling her Asian GOP opponent, whose family were Cambodian migrants, a “white supremacist” is further proof the Left’s race card was played out long ago. It’s just the reflexive comeback of tantrum-throwing, spiritually rebellious pagans not getting their way.

A Cambodian woman makes an ad highlighting the Cambodian Genocide/the horrors of socialism and @AOC has the audacity to call it "racist?"

Ocasio-Cortez just responded to the ad by calling Heng, who is Asian, a "white supremacist"@AOC is so stupid that she does not realize that she just played right into the point of the ad: it pissed her off, she reacted, and now the group is getting TONS of attention

No, @AOC, this is not a love letter to white supremacists. It’s a warning to all Americans that the unhinged tenets of the socialism you promote would lead to death and destruction if you’re ever given the power to bring it to America.
