New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said some head-scratching things in her time but this time she has gone too far.

The 30-year-old, who just won her election to continue as a representative, is feeling strong as presidential election results come in, and now she wants to create a list to know who those are who stood with President Donald Trump, The New York Post reported.

“Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” she said in a tweet on Friday.

“I foresee the decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future,” the representative said.

People immediately began comparing her to dictators like Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler for her desire to have an enemies list.

“Lol at the ‘party of personal responsibility’ being upset at the idea of being responsible for their behavior over last four years,” she responded to the complaints.

Ocasio-Cortez received a since-deleted response from an ex-staffer of former President Barack Obama, Michael Simon, who shared a link to a site called The Trump Accountability Project.

The site says it aims to embarrass and hold accountable people complicit in the worst behaviors of Trump’s presidency, including his campaign staff, White House staff, donors and even lawyers.

“The world should never forget those who, when faced with a decision, chose to put their money, their time, and their reputations behind separating children from their families, encouraging racism and anti-Semitism, and negligently causing the unnecessary loss of life and economic devastation from our country’s failed response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” the site says its mission.

The representative is on the attack even as Democrats have her in their sights for them not getting the blue wave they expected, Business Insider reported.

House Democrats were expected to expand their majority this week while powering Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to the White House. Instead, they lost at least half a dozen seats.

Several centrist House members took aim at the party’s left-wing, arguing that progressive policies and rhetoric had undermined their appeal particularly in suburban districts, during a contentious call on Thursday, The Washington Post reported.

Rep. Abigail Spanberger, a Virginia Democrat who faced a tough reelection race, and others took issue with democratic socialism and calls to defund the police.

“We need to not ever use the word ‘socialist’ or ‘socialism’ ever again … We lost good members because of that,” the representative said. “If we are classifying Tuesday as a success … we will get f—ing torn apart in 2022.”

But in a series of tweets on Friday Rep. Ocasio-Cortez pushed back on the centrist Democrats for blaming her.

“You can’t just tell the Black, Brown, & youth organizers riding in to save us every election to be quiet or not have their reps champion them when they need us. Or wonder why they don’t show up for midterms when they’re scolded for existing. Esp when they’re delivering victories,” she said.
