A ex-aide to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now working as a senior official in the New York State Communist Party.

Justine Medina, 33, spent a year employed by "The Squad" leader as a political organizer in 2020 and was paid more than $35,000 between February and November of that year, Federal Election Commission records show.

Almost immediately after the election, Medina began working as a full-blown Marxist. In July 2021, she was identified as "co-chair of the New York Young Communist League" by the Communist Party newspaper People's World. The same publication today identifies her as a member of the "Executive Committee of the New York State Communist Party."

Social media records show Medina's Marxist proclivities were in full bloom before and during her employment with Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.

"Well, I am a Communist, but work for AOC," she said proudly in a tweet from October 2020. "Communism is about equality, democracy, peace, the advancement of workers, the oppressed, and humanity in general," she added a month later.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the country's most high-profile socialists. James Keivom Former AOC Campaign Coordinator Justine Medina shows her pride with a custom AOC shirt.

"It is true the path there will be unkind to those who block progress, but Communism is good and should not scare you," she noted darkly in the same posting.

In AOC's campaign, Medina was responsible for "organizing & writing policy language with Anti-War Veterans & the Peace Movement," she noted in March.

AOC follows Medina on Twitter and the two have posed for a smiling photo in the past.

Medina was involved in successful efforts to unionize Amazon's workforce, efforts she bragged about in an article for the Communist Party website, which identified her as a packer at the Amazon warehouse in Staten Island. AOC has long been an Amazon antagonist. She played an integral role in killing a plan by the company to open a headquarters in New York City and has been a vocal supporter of Amazon unionization efforts — though some on the frontline note she has often failed to show up.

Like any good organizer, Medina also has a long history of arrests. She was booked at least twice in June 2020 during Black Lives Matter riots which convulsed the city. In a tweet, she complained cops' zip ties were too tight. She was also busted that year for attempting to deface a plaque honoring Fred Trump in Woodhaven, Queens, according to the New Yorker.

Medina espoused her believes in Communism while working for AOC.keywiki.org/Justine_Medina

Like many socialists, Medina is a child of privilege.

She is the daughter of Cuban-American lawyer Omar Medina, a wealthy trial attorney out of Tampa with a checkered past. Omar Medina's license was suspended for 30 days in 2013 after he made false statements on behalf of a client, the Tampa Bay Business Journal reported. That same year he was sued for wage theft — the case wassettled. He lives in a five bedroom, six-bathroom, 5,316-square foot manse in Tampa worth more than $3 million. He has donated thousands of dollars to President Biden and Hillary Clinton, records show.

"As for her allegiance to the Communist Party, I could not be further removed from that. It's a big problem," Omar Medina told The Post. "My family escaped communism, and my daughter is misguided as to the benefits that political system provides, it flat out doesn't work."

Justine Medina dismissed her father as a "rich anti-Castro … liberal," who "just buy things."

"It's frightening. They're coming out of the woodwork," said Queens Councilman Bob Holden, a Democrat. "Communism has failed in so many places that it is mind-boggling that AOC's constituents keep electing her. This is kind of like a smoking gun that these elected officials and congresspeople are out and out communist."

AOC is a threat to our democracy and national security, in my opinion...and needs to be investigated for any ties to, or an asset of, any communistic governments.

I dont give a shit if someone who was a minor figure in AOC's campaign is a communist. She was paid 35,000 dollars for 10 months work. Obviously not a key adviser. 

You guys are cracking up.

You just posted an article stoking fear about white supremacists because a 22 year old congressional aide liked a bad tweet.

LOL. what planet are you living on

There are roughly 120 million white adults in America.  If only 5% of them were racist that would be 6 million. The figure is far greater than 5 %.

That is not proof. You made a ridiculous claim and now you are going to hide behind there will always be some kind of racism.

I'm a bit older than you and I can tell you that I never hear racist comments anymore. I live in MA which is predominately white. The other day I posted a story of a nurse surrounded by 5 black men. She rented a bike to get home from work. They said it was their's and they took control of the bike. I posted that story for many reasons. One reason was to show not only how far we have come ( when I was young that would not have been tolerated), but also to show the etreme we have gone to. That woman was a victim, but TODAY'S RACISTS came out to defend the 5 men before somebody thought they were bullying that woman.

Do you get the point?

If you want to talk race let me know.

You dont have a point Vic.

I wouldnt know. But you could just as easily be wrong about that as right.

I've seen you talk about race. Its hard to comment on that without getting a coc violation.

Using that logic .... there are about 250 million adults in the USA.    If only 5% of them are commies that’s nearly 13 million commies.

Way more commies than white supremacists.

Way more .....

It's a false equivalency.

I can think of about 5 things more threatening to the US than racism. As a matter of fact, the lawless radical regime in power would be # 1.

I grew up in a small town on the AZ/Mexico border being of mixed heritage. My town was literally run by a small minority of white families that were Mormons who ran most of the businesses. In the late 50's, 60's, and 70's the LDS Church was blatantly racist against Hispanics and African Americans. In my town, Hispanics were employed by Mormon employers and paid significantly less wages that whites. Growing up, I had white kids beat me up on a regular basis and using unpleasant racial epithets that I won't mention. There was a clear dividing line in the town where the affluent whites could live and where the Hispanics and African Americans were zoned to live in. Some people posting here seem to be under the mistaken impression that only blacks suffer racism. I would love to have some of those folks to have walked in my shoes when I was growing up.

Yes, I also recall when all kinds of people were discriminated against. In the northeast it was one ethnic group against another.

Thank God those times have changed.
