AOC’s long stint with two Israeli entrepreneurs reconfirms that she is no progressive (like, say, Paul Wellstone), but only plays one on TV

Note the neoliberal/Big Tech tenor of the enterprise she worked for in those years, and that she honed her skills at “self-presentation” as a venture-capital employee, not as a waitress/bartender, as her legend has it. 

That background illuminates her support for the Bolivian junta, her vote for a bill targeting Nicaragua for intervention, her refusal to support Bernie (ostensibly because the “transphobic” Joe Rogan endorsed him), and other stands that no genuine progressive would have taken.

Such is “the left” in Congress.
