After spending a year working as an aide to Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez during the 2020 presidential election, one leftist woman is now reportedly working as a senior official in the New York State Communist Party.
Justine Medina, 33, scooped up a job as “co-chair of the New York Young Communist League” right after the 2020 election, according to the New York Post. Years later, she’s now a member of the Executive Committee of the New York State Communist Party.
Here’s the thing: Her Communist bona fides were always clearly evident, meaning Ocasio-Cortez surely must have known that she had a Marxist on her staff.
Check out what Medina tweeted in October of 2020:
Haha, well, 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! But yes we should run third party candidates where it makes sense! And IMPORTANTLY, channel ppl who join thru electoral elsewhere too

Now check out what she tweeted a month later:
Communism is about equality, democracy, peace, the advancement of workers, the oppressed, and humanity in general. It is true the path there will be unkind to those who block progress, but Communism is good and should not scare you, but excits you.

Plus, Ocasio-Cortez reportedly continues to follow Medina on Twitter.
As part of the Democrat lawmaker’s 2020 campaign, she’d been responsible for “organizing & writing policy language with Anti-War Veterans & the Peace Movement,” according to a tweet she posted this past March.
On the @AOC campaign in 2020, I was responsible organizing & writing policy language with Anti-War Veterans & the Peace Movement.
Alex, promoting military academies is undeniably recruitment. You & all socialists should REFUSE to do that part of your job.https://t.co/Sp2m4licMS

“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,” according to the New York Post.
“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,” the Post notes.
Like virtually every typical leftist, Medina also has an extensive criminal history that includes two arrests during the violent, deadly Black Lives Matter riots of 2020.
“In a tweet [posted at the time], 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 Post.
Also like virtually every typical leftist, including fake “Bronx” girl Ocasio-Cortez, Medina also comes from a wealthy family — albeit a troubled one.
“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,” according to the Post.
“That same year he was sued for wage theft — the case was settled. 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.”

Thankfully, despite being a Democrat supporter, Medina’s father at least understands that Communism is BAD.
“As for her allegiance to the Communist Party, I could not be further removed from that. It’s a big problem. My family escaped communism, and my daughter is misguided as to the benefits that political system provides, it flat out doesn’t work,” he told the Post.
In response, Medina reportedly dismissed him as a “rich anti-Castro … liberal” — the type who “just buy things,” whatever that means.
He’s not the only Democrat worried about her and others’ descent into Communist madness.
“It’s frightening. They’re coming out of the woodwork,” Queens councilman Bob Holden, a Democrat, said to the Post, referencing all the Communists out there these days.
“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,” he added.
He appeared to be suggesting that Ocasio-Cortez is herself a Communist. He’s certainly not the only one who believes so …
