(TargetLiberty.org) – A report by the New York Post shows that Justine Medina, 33, who previously worked as a former aide to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is now a senior official in the New York State Communist Party.
Medina has previously worked for Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign for most of 2020, earning around $35,000. She then became the “Co-chair of the New York Communist League” by the People’s World, a publication of the Communist Party.
She has now moved further up in the publications ranks and is listed as serving on the Executive Committee of the New York State Communist Party. She is further noted to be active in the Amazon Labor Union at JFK8.
During her time working for Ocasio-Cortez, Medina’s work was focused on “organizing and writing policy language with Anti-War Veterans & the Peace Movement.” As The Post report shows Medina has for years put out tweets that show how closely aligned she was with communism. In a tweet in October 2020, she had even gone as far as to say she was “a Communist” but that she was just working for Ocasio-Cortez.
In a different tweet, she proclaimed that “communism is good” and people should not be scared of it.
When asked about which specific variety of communism she subscribed to, Medina replied “Marxist-Leninist-Robesonist” thought, referring to Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and Paul Robeson. She did not appear to acknowledge the Maoist or Leninist variety of Communism, which led to multiple deaths in the 20th century.
