  • It referred to AOC as ‘the face of socialism’ showing a picture of her face burning

Republicans aired a shocking new attack ad branding Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ‘the face of socialism’ and showing her face burning, during Thursday’s the Democratic debate. 

The 30-second spot, as narrated by aspiring Asian-American lawmaker Elizabeth Heng, also featured images of skulls from the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia to show the ‘horrors’ of ‘forced obedience’.

AOC slammed the advert as a poor attempt by the Republican Party to convince voters that ‘they aren’t racist’.

‘What you just watched was a love letter to the GOP’s white supremacist case,’ she tweeted. ‘ Republicans are running TV ads setting pictures of me on fire to convince people they aren’t racist. 

‘Know that this wasn’t an ad for young conservatives of color – that was the pretense,’ she added in an additional tweet. ‘What you just watched was a love letter to the GOP’s white supremacist base.’

The spot, which aired at the end of the latest Democratic debate on ABC, showed a photo of AOC’s face being burned.

‘This is the face of socialism and ignorance,’ says Heng, who recently lost her seat, in a voiceover. ‘Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror of socialism?’ 

‘My father was minutes from death in Cambodia before a forced marriage saved his life,’ the narrator continues. ‘THAT’S socialism – forced obedience, starvation.’ 

The ad cycles through a montage of black and white images showing skulls, malnourished Asian children, and later dead bodies.
