Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's stunning primary victory over the fourth highest ranking Democrat, Joe Crowley signaled the party's hard leftward shift in the aftermath of Donald Trump's electoral landslide.

Ocasio-Cortez ran on a radical platform, demanding the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Medicare for all, a universal jobs guarantee, and transitioning the United States to 100 percent green energy.

One of Ocasio-Cortez’s most enthusiastic campaigners and a man who stood behind her at her victory party, Thomas Lopez-Pierre, is a known anti-Semite and racist. Lopez-Pierre has regularly used slurs against Jewish and black New Yorkers in public forums and while running for office himself.

While running for office in 2017, Lopez-Pierre specifically campaigned on “protecting tenants from greedy Jewish landlords.” Lopez-Pierre’s own campaign website shows his rantings against “Greedy Jewish Landlords.” His campaign website applauds the arrest of “Greedy Jewish Landlords” and says that “Jewish Landlords” are “punishing” black and Hispanic families.

Lopez-Pierre’s twitter bio says he is protecting people from “greedy Jewish landlords.” In May of 2018, Lopez-Pierre ranted against “Greedy Jewish landlords,” saying Jesus should put them “In Hell.” Just this month Lopez-Pierre tweeted about “Greedy Jewish landlords.”

Lopez-Pierre also has tweeted about threatening white people and Jewish people with violence.


Lopez-Pierre has denied claims he is an anti-Semite and said that he plans to educate himself on Judaism by reading books like "Capitalism and the Jews."
