Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took to Twitter to slam Democratic strategist James Carville, and others, for placing the blame of Terry McAuliffe's gubernatorial loss in Virginia, on the party's "wokeness." AOC went on to claim that the terms is "almost exclusively used by older people."

"How can news outlets even attribute words to me I didn’t say," Ocasio-Cortez questioned. The tweet linked to a report and another tweet from ABC 13 News in Virginia which quoted the New York congresswoman as saying McAuliffe lost the race because he was not "woke" enough.

"I said there are limits to trying to mobilize a campaign with a 100% moderate strategy without mobilizing the base," Ocasio-Cortez added. "Said nothing [about] ‘wokeness’ which is a term almost exclusively used by older people these days btw".

Ocasio-Cortez, a member of far-left progressive "Squad", also insisted that the word "woke" is used primarily by "Carville and Fox News pundits." She said statements targeting younger generations as "woke" by older Democrats will hurt "youth turnout" at the polls.

According to Carville, McAuliffe's loss in Virginia was primarily a result of "stupid wokeness" and the progressive agenda.

"What went wrong is stupid wokeness," Carville said. "Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey. Look at Long Island, Buffalo, look at Minneapolis, even look at Seattle, Washington. I mean this ‘defund the police’ lunacy, this take Abraham Lincoln’s name off of schools, people see that. And it really has a suppressive effect all across the country on Democrats. Some of these people need to go to a detox center or something."

Merriam-Webster added the word woke to its dictionary in 2017, defining it as, "aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice)." The Oxford dictionary adopted it the same year, defining it as "originally: well-informed, up-to-date. Now chiefly: alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice."

Saturday, New Yorkers reacted angrily to Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jamaal Bowman's vote against a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. The legislation, which garnered bipartisan support in the House and Senate, will bring more than $100 billion to New York to fix the city and state’s crumbling infrastructure.

“New York needs this money,” said Sidibe Ibrahima, a business owner and Democrat from Harlem. “The fact that [AOC] had her own community impacted by the floods, how are you going to go against an infrastructure bill? She should think about the people who voted for her.”

Bowman and Ocasio-Cortez were among six Democrats who said no to the bill. The others were fellow “Squad” members Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Cori Bush (D-Mo.)
