Elizabeth Heng, founder of Republican-affiliated PAC New Faces GOP, joined CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Friday night to discuss backlash generated by her group’s recent ad, which shows Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bursting into flames.

The ad, which aired during Thursday night’s Democratic debate, was heavily criticized for its depiction of a photo of Ocasio-Cortez catching fire and burning away to show harrowing images from the Cambodian Civil War in the 1970s that Heng’s father fled. In it, Heng can be heard saying, “This is the face of socialism and ignorance.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the face of socialism,” Heng repeated on Cuomo’s show. “Throughout history, socialism has killed lives, including those in my very own family. And so I was merely wanting to force the discussion of talking about what true socialism is in our country and to force that debate.”
