In a campaign speech, Justice Paul Newby (R) compared his six Democratic colleagues to freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, “who has become something of a boogeyman for Republicans looking to highlight the national Democratic Party’s leftward shift,” WRAL reports.
Said Newby: “Imagine seven ‘AOCs’ on the state Supreme Court Well, folks, we got six. It’s six to one.”
He then took issue with those who complain about the United States: “If we’re as bad as the other side says we are, I will buy you a ticket to leave. I mean, just leave… We don’t build walls to keep you in. We’ve got to have a wall to keep you out if you’re trying to get here illegally.”Save to Favorites
