According to The New York Post, Justine Medina, 33, earned $35,000 working for the ‘Squad’ member’s 2020 campaign.
After working for the progressive firebrand, Medina was named "Co-chair of the New York Communist League" by the People’s World, a publication of the Communist Party.
Additionally, the publication also lists Medina as a member of the Executive Committee of the New York State Communist Party.
While serving as an aide to Ocasio-Cortez, Medina claimed she was responsible for "organizing and writing policy language with Anti-War Veterans & the Peace Movement."
The post also dug up Medina’s past tweets, which revealed her alignment with communism. Medina tweeted in October 2020, "[W]ell, I *am* a Communist, but work for AOC & helped start Queens DSA’s Electoral WG, so I def see utility in working on the Dem ballot line!"
In another tweet, she said communism is about "equality, democracy, peace, the advancement of workers, the oppressed and humanity in general," adding that the road to communism will be "unkind" to those who "block progress."
She added, "[B]ut communism is good and shouldn’t scare you."
Following the publication of The Post’s article, Medina seemed to celebrate the label and posted a screenshot of the article writing, "Friends, I have an announcement to make."
According to The Post, Medina was involved in efforts to unionize Amazon’s workforce and bragged about her work in an article for the Communist Party website. AOC played an integral role in stopping a plan by Amazon to open a headquarters in New York City and has been a vocal supporter of unionization efforts at the tech giant.
The outlet also reported that Medina also has a long history of arrests, having been booked at least twice in June 2020 during Black Lives Matter riots which rocked the city, and even complained in a tweet that the cop's zip ties were too tight. According to the New Yorker, She was also arrested in 2020 for attempting to deface a plaque in Queens honoring Fred Trump.According to Fox News, in response to questions about her beliefs, Medina said she subscribed to "Marxist-Leninist-Robesonist" thought, a reference to Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and Paul Robeson.
Communist ideology has been responsible for many political movements throughout the 20th century, resulting in the murder of more than 100 million people.
In the 1930s, Joseph Stalin, the Soviet Union's communist dictator, starved millions of Ukrainians, while Mao Zedong, China's communist dictator led the Cultural Revolution and Great Leap Forward, the death toll from which is estimated to have been over 40 million.
Pol Pot, Cambodia's Khmer Rouge communist leader, during his brief rule in the 1970s, is estimated to have killed about a quarter of his own country's population.
