Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. blasted a GOP Super PAC for a television ad airing during the Democratic presidential debate. She called the ad “a love letter to the GOP’s white supremacist case.”

Ocasio-Cortez made her comments in two tweets Thursday night.

She wrote: “Republicans are running TV ads setting pictures of me on fire to convince people they aren’t racist. Life is weird!”

And she added: “Know that this wasn’t an ad for young conservatives of color - that was the pretense. What you just watched was a love letter to the GOP’s white supremacist case.”

The Hill noted the ad ran on a Sinclair-owned ABC affiliate in Washington D.C. It said the ad was created by New Faces GOP, a political action committee headed by Elizabeth Heng, who unsuccessfully ran for a California congressional seat last year.

The ad opens with a photo of Ocasio-Cortez.

“This is the face of socialism and ignorance,” Heng says. “Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror of socialism?”

The picture of Ocasio-Cortez then burns and reveals images of skulls and skeletons, according to The Hill.

“My father was minutes from death in Cambodia before a forced marriage saved his life,” Heng says. “That’s socialism. Forced obedience. Starvation. “Mine is a face of freedom. My skin is not white. I’m not outrageous, racist or socialist. I’m a Republican.”

Heng later responded to Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter, saying: “Are you really calling me a racist @aoc?. I’m calling all Democrats out for supporting an evil ideology.”
