'Flaming AOC' Ad Creator Swamped with Death Threats from 'Tolerant' Left

During the third Democratic debate on Thursday, a controversial campaign commercial aired in some markets that’s become known as the “Flaming AOC” ad.
The narrator of the piece is a former Republican congressional candidate whose family escaped from the bloody Khmer Rouge communist regime in Cambodia, Elizabeth Heng. She compared Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialism to the kind of socialism that has killed millions across the globe over the past century.
Now, just to prove her point, Heng says she’s been getting death threats from what one would assume are supporters of Ocasio-Cortez.
“I’m currently getting death threats since the ad aired,” Heng told Breitbart News Tonight on SiriusXM radio on Friday.
“If we want to talk about what incites violence, socialism does,” Heng said. “My parents lived through a socialist regime that murdered millions of innocent civilians, and I’m currently getting death threats since the ad aired. The only people inciting violence are the radical left, who can’t defend their ideas with facts, so they resort to horrible personal attacks, and as we’ve seen, even death threats.
“I put out an ad challenging AOC’s socialist views, and she came back and called me a bunch of names. That should tell you everything you really need to know about the face of socialism, right now, in our country.”

Heng’s ad began with Ocasio-Cortez’s face; the paper with her picture on it caught on fire and revealed a pile of skulls, intermixed with other footage of the Khmer Rouge’s atrocities.
“This is the face of socialism and ignorance,” Heng says in voiceover. “Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror of socialism?”
“My father was minutes away from death in Cambodia. That’s socialism. Forced obedience, starvation.
“Mine is a face of freedom. My skin is not white. I’m not outrageous, racist, or socialist,” Heng adds. “I’m a Republican.”
The ad was sponsored by New Faces PAC — a newly created GOP super PAC, according to CBS News. It aired on some stations owned by ABC and Sinclair Broadcasting.
This was the target of immediate Twitter opprobrium from Ocasio-Cortez.
