Florida Representative Ron DeSantis, who is running for governor of the state, appeared at a campaign rally on Saturday and chose to use Ocasio-Cortez's name in his attack against democratic socialism, Broadly reports.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez added a Stalinist flavor to Bernie Sanders' and Elizabeth Warren's numerous socialist proposals ("Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won't say if she'd back Nancy Pelosi for speaker", Web, July 22).
DeSantis made the remarks at a political rally in Orange Park, according to the Huffington Post, which broke the story. "It's basically socialism wrapped in ignorance".
The 39-year-old DeSantis goes on to insult Ocasio-Cortez, who is 28 and identifies as a Democratic socialist, for criticizing the Israeli government's treatment of Palestinians.
Conservative journalist and blogger Allie Beth Stuckey has posted a fake interview - using mashed-up clips from a real one - with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, discrediting the 29-year-old socialist running for Congress in NY.
In the mash-up, Ocasio-Cortez appears unable to answer basic questions about her socialist ideology and the direction socialism might take her country.

While Ocasio-Cortez must still win a general election matchup on November 6, Pocan laughed off the suggestion that it may be premature to discuss committee assignments.
"She's gonna be a member, so I don't think we're too early on that", Pocan said. Sander's socialism is also something of a different breed, one that at least nominally places value on individual rights. Given her classic underdog victory as a first-time candidate, as well as her progressive politics, her name has been on the lips of many people. Ben Shapiro of the Daily Wire blasted Ocasio-Cortez's reaction as "intensely stupid".
The chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez, has praised Ocasio-Cortez as "the future" of his party.
"You know, the Democratic Party is overwhelmingly unified".
