The National Rifle Association is running scared of socialists.

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s primary win over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday prompted the gun lobbying group to issue a panic-stricken call to arms.

“Left-wing socialists have infiltrated our nation and want to fundamentally change the country we love,”NRATV host Grant Stinchfield warns in an over-the-top video clip posted online Wednesday. “The socialist movement in America is real. It is dangerous. And it is more powerful than you may think.”

Now why would such a young woman scare such a powerful organization?

Could it be the power of her ideas?

The fact that she represents many more Americans just like her, eager to vote against Republican interests? 

Or could it be something else?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Wednesday that she would support impeachment for President Trump if she wins in November.

The 28-year-old democratic socialist, fresh off a shocking primary upset over 10-term incumbent Rep. Joseph Crowley (D) in New York’s 14th District, made the comments in an interview on CNN.

“I would support impeachment,” the first-time candidate and former Bernie Sanders campaign organizer said. “I think that you know, we have the grounds to do it.”

“Ultimately, what we need to focus on is ensuring that when people break the law … that we have to hold everyone accountable and that no person is above that law,” she added.

Ah, well this could certainly be it couldn’t it? 

Ocasio-Cortez is clearly not playing it safe and seems undeterred by charges that she is not being civil or is pushing too hard for change. 

The NRA and Donald Trump are essentially joined at the hip, and once he goes down that organization, and its ties to Russia, are going to be carefully and thoroughly investigated.
