    Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) repeatedly demonized successful business owners in an interview during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event on Monday, literally arguing that business owners were lazy slave owners who profit off the backs of minorities who are “dying” because the business owners are successful.

    Ocasio-Cortez made the extreme remarks when she was asked why successful business owners were “the enemy of health care.”

    “Well, you didn’t make those widgets, did you?” Ocasio-Cortez began. “Because you employed thousands of people and paid them less than a living wage to make those widgets for you. You didn’t make those widgets.”

    “You sat on a couch while thousands of people were paid modern day slave wages, and in some cases real slave, real modern-day slavery, uh, depending on where you are in terms of food production,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “You made that money off the backs of undocumented people. You made that money off the backs of black and brown people being paid under a living wage.”

    “You made that money off the backs of single mothers and all these people who are literally dying because they can’t afford to live and so no one ever makes a billion dollars,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “You take a billion dollars and all of that to say, is that it’s, and I’m not here to villainize and to say that billionaires are inherently morally corrupt – but they are, I mean, I think there is a case, but um, but, it’s not to say that, it’s to say that this system that we live in, life in capitalism, always ends in billionaires. If you don’t do it, someone else will. It’s who decides to make that choice is just kind of up to, you know, circumstance.”

    I smell handlers supplying AOC with talking points. The AOC I know wouldn’t know what a widget is and would be asking where she could buy one.

    She is so fucking stupid that she doesn't even realize that flooding the country with illegal immigrants that have no skills depresses the price of labor and because they are illegal working under the radar they have no protection from those who are taking advantage of them. Most likely a lot are dems.
    I love the sound of liberal heads exploding in the morning!!

    Toxically masculine and proud of it!

    I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens.

    shades of obama's "you didn't build that" speech. What she fails to acknowledge is that the business owner starts up a business at great financial risk to themselves and is subject to countless bullshit governmental regulations that seem to hamper business owners rather than assist them.

    Would she rather that all business owners close up shop putting millions of workers on the street and unemployed? How would she get her daily starbucks fix if the company that made the cups, or the lids, or the little green stirrer thingys, or the coffee brewing machines closed down?

    she is one dumb twunt.

    Everytime I hear AOC speak in public I'm wondering who wrote that for her. Someone who doesn't know about a garbage disposal in her kitchen is not literate enough to be writing the garbage she's spewing.

    Did someone buy her a random bidness word generator??

    What ever the situation is she is a danger to our democracy, like omar and several others. They need to be driven out of office before their cancer can spread any further.

    Now that is an excellent speech to make if you don't want to get re-elected.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    How many of those businesses started out as a one man or a he & she small operation and was built into a viable organization? The broad could empty water out of a boot with the directions printed on the heel to clean up an old cowboy saying.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    “You made that money off the backs of single mothers and all these people who are literally dying because they can’t afford to live and so no one ever makes a billion dollars,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “You take a billion dollars and all of that to say, is that it’s, and I’m not here to villainize and to say that billionaires are inherently morally corrupt – but they are, I mean, I think there is a case, but um, but, it’s not to say that, it’s to say that this system that we live in, life in capitalism, always ends in billionaires.

    Brainless, rambling moron. Nothing in that entire paragraph made sense or made any kind of a valid point.
    And to think, the leftists who idolize her used to make fun of George W. Bush for supposedly being stupid. Even at his worst moments of speaking, he sounded like a Harvard graduate compared to her.


    Oh, and of course she had to mention "Undocumented people" and make it more inclusive with "Black and brown people," to ensure that she keeps getting her regular bribes from MS- 13 and the Mexican cartels.
    I cannot wait until she gets voted out of office. It'll be so easy for the Republican running against her to make a campaign ad: Just clips of her own speeches with her reveling in her idiocy and her open desire for tyranny. Mentioning that her running Amazon out of New York cost her constituents thousands of jobs and that her proposed Green New Deal, if it were actually passed, would completely bankrupt America wouldn't hurt, either.
