Is she agitating for the workers to seize the means of production and hang bosses from street lights, or suggesting it as a historical inevitability ? Perhaps does she support popular armed insurrections, and massed disobedience by enlisted soldiers ? Would she hypothetically be in favour of the dictatorship of the proletariat ? Does she advocate enforced equality of income/means, or the abolition of personal property ? Has she ever uttered the phrase "property of use" or "squatting rights" ? Maybe she's all hopped up on smashing the institutions of government, particularly the federal one, to be replaced by self-determined micro-communes ?

If the answer to any/all of these questions is "no", she's not far left.
