“It’s a pretty short leap from ‘We don’t want homeless people living here’ to ‘We don’t want immigrants or refugees’” Lewis said. “I’ve seen lifelong hippies who drive EVs stand up at these meetings and say ‘Theres too many people here already’ It’s like you’re at a Trump rally.”

‘Republicans shouldn’t be feared, they should be beaten. Ocasio-Cortez told me that she treats Republicans like buffoons because that’s how they’ve behaved for as long as she can remember. “They’ve been clowns since I was a teen,” she said.’
