Shameless AOC is queen Democrat bee of ‘rules for thee but not for me’
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hates the super rich.
Barely a week goes by when she isn’t publicly raging against billionaires, saying they shouldn’t be allowed to exist alongside poverty in America.
It’s not just the “immorality” of it all that this self-styled working-class cracker from the Bronx hates, it’s the “inequality.”
Outraged against America’s economic injustice, he told the New York Times in 2019: “We’re at our richest place we’ve ever been, but we’ve also been at our most unequal.”
So you’d imagine that Ocasio-Cortez would see New York’s annual Met Gala as the very symbol of revoltingly immoral and inequitable capitalist excess, featuring some of America’s richest and most famous people. How rich they are. of exquisite over-the-top indulgence.
It turns out that young Alexandria was so desperate to be there, partying with the world’s most privileged people, that she ignored her own anti-corruption lawyer’s warning not to go as a guest of Vogue magazine. given
Only, being a good socialite, she didn’t want to pay for her $35,000 ticket, or any other ticket for her boyfriend.
No, she wanted $70,000 worth of free stuff, and later lied about who gave it to her.
Then, as the Post revealed in shocking detail yesterday, he got his staff to cut the costs of all his VIP trimmings, from haute couture white dresses — including, with hilarious irony, the words “Tax the Rich” on it. ” The word was written. — to her makeup, limousines and even her boyfriend’s bowtie.
None of this should surprise seasoned observers of Ocasio-Cortez’s humorous hypocrisy when it comes to flaunting wealth or talking about financial equality.
For an interview magazine shoot several years ago, in which she photographed herself around construction workers and spoke about the urgent need to do more to tackle financial inequality, she wore a $1,990 Gabriela Hearst blazer, $890 matching wool pants, and Wearing $625 Manolo Blahnik. the pump
And another time, he said that New York’s yellow cabs are “in financial ruin because of Uber’s unregulated expansion” — only to reveal that his own campaign spent $4,000 on 160 Uber rides in California (where they don’t even run). (for office) in a period of three months.
She’s not the only Democrat partisan to practice the opposite of what they preach.
Remember when Gavin Newsom locked down California like Fort Knox during the Covid pandemic, but was then caught breaking lockdown rules to attend a friend’s birthday party at one of America’s most expensive restaurants, the French Laundry. went?
He called it “a mistake,” but he knew exactly what he was doing.
As he did when he again defied his own Covid rules to take photos with Los Angeles Mayor Gil Garcetti, San Francisco Mayor London Breed and the immunocompromised Magic Johnson, all maskless, at the Rams-49ers divisional championship, as somehow The virus did not infiltrate the VIP hospitality suite.
And as then-Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams of Georgia did last year when she sat maskless and beamed with joy in a classroom full of distressed-looking children, all forced to wear masks.
Disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a Women’s Equality Act proposal that would ban sexual harassment in the workplace, and a workplace anti-discrimination bill in 2019, which he said would address mistreatment. “Ongoing, continuous culture” was needed to cope.
The governor then had to resign due to constant workplace harassment and abuse.
President Biden’s list of hypocritical statements would cover the entire southern border if it were a wall.
But a typical example would be former President Donald Trump’s furious attack on the “irresponsible” handling of classified documents found at Biden’s home, weeks before they were found.
President Barack Obama was just as bad, condemning Trump’s tough immigration policies without mentioning that he himself deported more than 3 million immigrants during his eight years in office, or that he separated families and children. kept in cages.
As for Hillary Clinton, where do you begin?
Perhaps angrily she expressed the prospect of the White House being occupied by a serial womanizer who accused women of sexually assaulting them, unless it was her husband, not Trump, and all the women’s accusers’ Need to be believed unless they were accusing Bill, in which case they were liars.
This is the same double-mindedness that has been adopted by liberal figures.
People like Prince Harry and Leonardo DiCaprio love to give speeches about the environment and climate change, but take private planes like buses.
Meryl Streep feigned horror over friend Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuse, but once gave a standing ovation at the Oscars for fugitive child rapist Roman Polanski when he won an award in absentia because he was evading US justice.
And mega-hater Jussie Smollett raged against liars and racists, then launched a racist attack herself.
And so it becomes raw.
A common thread among all these two-faced Democratic scoundrels is that they always escape the venom of self-righteous tyranny that they would rain down on the heads of Republicans if it were the other way around.
That’s the beauty of being a liberal hypocrite: your fellow liberals will never call you out on it!
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knows this, which is why she thinks she can constantly get away with it, and is very shameless in doing so.
When it comes to “rules for you, not me,” AOC is the queen bee.
