Here's the exchange.
Press: There was a primary in several states. Your home state of Maryland and also up in New York where the 4th most powerful Democrat in the United States, Congressman Joe Crowley was knocked out by a young woman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - 28 years old - never ran for office before - big progressive - calls herself a Democratic socialist, actually like Bernie Sanders did – she was a Bernie Sanders supporter, and in Maryland, Ben Jealous another strong progressive wins the Democratic nomination for governor. What’s this tell you about where the Democratic Party is going today?
Perez: Well, my daughters – I have 3 kids, two of whom are daughters, one just graduated college, one is in college, and they were both texting me about their excitement over Alexandria because, you know, she really represents the future of our party. She ran a spirited campaign.

Now, understand that I titled the piece that Ocasio-Cortez is no the future of the party, she's merely this history. The future of the party is something even more evil than her ideology is.
Though Ocasio-Cortez has not yet found her way onto DiscoverTheNetworks.org, we know that she does pay dues to the Democratic Socialists of America. You might as well call them Nazis, as that is what National Socialists are.
Yahoo News reports:
The primary defeat Tuesday of Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., who was both a top-ranking House Democrat and the head of one of New York’s last political machines, is an upset that is still sending shockwaves through the Democratic Party.
Crowley was taken down by a 28-year-old political rookie named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who won in part by denouncing Crowley’s brand of old-school machine politics. But she had a campaign machine of her own, an outside group known as the Democratic Socialists of America. In the avalanche of coverage of Ocasio-Cortez’s win, the logistical support and manpower she received from the DSA has drawn relatively little notice. But the group is poised to make its presence felt in the midterms.
More than 100 volunteers from the DSA had flooded the streets of the 14th Congressional District, which includes parts of Queens and the Bronx, for months.
Ocasio-Cortez will be the first DSA member in Congress since Rep. Ron Dellums left office in 1998, but she isn’t the first candidate to score a dramatic upset with the help of the leftist organization. And if they have their way, she won’t be the last.
“Our recent electoral successes demonstrate that people are sick and tired of being ignored and they’re ready to fight back, and that includes in the political arena,” DSA national director Maria Svart wrote in an email to Yahoo News.
“Democratic socialist ideas will win and we do the hard work of knocking on doors to make it happen,” Svart added.
Now, in case you were wondering exactly what the DSA actually is, I'm here to tell you. According to Discover The Networks:
At the height of the Cold War and the Vietnam War era, the Socialist Party USA of Eugene Debs and Norman Thomas split in two over the issue of whether or not to criticize the Soviet Union, its allies, and Communism: One faction rejected and denounced the USSR and its allies—including Castro's Cuba, the Sandinistas, North Vietnam and the Viet Cong—and supported Poland's Solidarity Movement, etc. This anti-Communist faction took the name Social Democrats USA. (Many of its leaders—including Carl Gershman, who became Jeane Kirkpatrick's counselor of embassy at the United Nations—eventually grew more conservative and became Reagan Democrats.) The other faction, however, refused to reject Marxism, refused to criticize or denounce the USSR and its allies, and continued to support Soviet-backed policies—including the nuclear-freeze program that sought to consolidate Soviet nuclear superiority in Europe. This faction, whose leading figure was Michael Harrington, in 1973 took the name Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (DSOC); its membership included many former Students for a Democratic Society activists.
DSOC operated not as a separate political party but as an explicitly socialist force within the Democratic Party and the labor movement. As such, it attracted many young activists who sought to push the Democratic Party further leftward politically. Among the notables who joined DSOC were Machinists' Union leader William Winpisinger, feminist Gloria Steinem, gay rights activist Harry Britt, actor Ed Asner, and California Congressman (and avowed socialist) Ron Dellums.
By 1979 DSOC had made major inroads into the Democratic Party and claimed a national membership of some 3,000 people. In 1983 DSOC, under Michael Harrington's leadership, merged with the New American Movement to form the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).
Harrington’s strategy was to force a “realignment” of the two major political parties by pulling the Democrats emphatically to the left and polarizing the parties along class lines. He expected that this would drive business interests away from the Democrats and into the Republican Party, but that those losses would be more than offset by an influx of newly energized minority and union voters to the Democratic Party, and that over time the Democrats would embrace socialism as their preferred ideology. Thus Harrington sought to establish DSA as a force that worked within, and not outside of, the existing American political system. Following Harrington's lead, most DSAers were committed to electoral politics within the Democratic Party. They feared that if they were to openly move too far and too quickly to the left, they would run the risk of alienating moderate Democrats and thereby ensuring Ronald Reagan's reelection in 1984.
Like everything tied to Marxism, the people will become disillusioned but will retain basically the same Marist mindset, just offer a different way to tone it down, but eventually and inevitably it will grow into full-blown Communism.
They may separate themselves on some small issue, but at the heart they are for tyrannical government, less freedom, government theft of property and money and imposing a godless, lawless society on the people.
And right on que, the DSA showed their true colors and openly called for Communism.

Clearly, these people came from the public indoctrination centers known as public schools. Remember, the ideology of Communism has been responsible for unlawful incarceration, oppression, starvation and outright murder of millions of people over the past 100 years.
There is nothing "good" about Communism nor Communists. They are of their father the devil (John 8:44-45), who comes only to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10). They promise liberty, but are the slaves of corruption (2 Peter 2:19).

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may win her seat or may not. She may not even be alive in a few years. No one knows for sure, but the ideology of Ocasio-Cortez will evolve into full-blown Marxism, of that you can be sure, and if you don't believe me, just look at someone like Hillary Clinton.
Ocasio-Cortez, like most Marxists who lie in order to influence and deceive people into believing they are something when they are not, lied to gain notoriety. If she will lie about herself, I ask those people who voted for her, what else is she lying to you about?
Socialism has been the Democrat Party's history. Communism is the future of the Democrat Party, Mr. Perez, not Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
