Stanford-Yale Republican Elizabeth Heng Schools AOC During Scuffle Over Socialist Ad

Former bartender AOC was no match for Heng, a Stanford/Yale grad, who fired back at AOC with both barrels.

California Republican Elizabeth Heng announced her new Political Action Committee during the Democratic debate in a video that criticized Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her socialist agenda. The PAC is called “NewFacesGOP,” and focuses on elevating a new generation of Republicans.

The video Heng shared caused quite a stir, as it showed AOC’s face “burn up” on screen. When AOC got wind of the ad, she took to Twitter and lashed out.

On her website, Heng discusses the evils of socialism and how it has had a personal impact on she and her family.

My parents lived through the torment and devastation caused by the evils of socialism, and I refuse to just stand idly by as progressive socialist leaders in Congress, the mainstream media, and Silicon Valley mock our generation and destroy American principles, under the guise of ‘progressivism.’

As a woman, a minority, and a conservative millennial, I am a fresh new face for the Republican Party and someone who will stand up to socialism in America.”

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez played the Race Card on Republican Congressional candidate Elizabeth Heng after Heng ran a fiery ad slamming AOC’s dangerous socialist policies.

The ad aired during the Democratic primary debate last night. The commercial opened with a photo of Ocasio-Cortez that catches fire, revealing a somber image of the millions of people who died in Cambodia under socialism.

The ad features Elizabeth Heng, a Cambodian-American who’s the founder of a PAC called “New Faces GOP.”

During the ad spot, Heng narrates: “This is the face of socialism and ignorance. Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horrors of socialism? My father was minutes from death in Cambodia before a forced marriage saved his life. That’s socialism. Forced obedience, starvation.”

Heng continues: “Mine is a face of freedom. My skin is not white and not I’m outrageous, racist, nor socialist. I’m a Republican.” []

AOC was fuming mad over the ad and took to Twitter to lash out.

However, former bartender AOC was no match for Heng, a Stanford and Yale grad, who fired back saying, “Not Republicans. Me. Are you really calling me a racist?”

She added: “I’m calling all Democrats out for supporting an evil ideology. Or are you just in Congress to hang out with celebrities and tweet out ridiculous ideas like the Green New Deal?”
