Democrat socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is currently campaigning for far-left candidate Bernie Sanders. As the freshman congresswoman hits the campaign trail, she jumped on Bernie’s billionaire-hating bandwagon. She frequently attacks politicians who take money from those “evil” billionaires. But easily available records prove AOC is once again a hypocrite.
They say if you fail in business, you should switch to politics. There, it doesn’t really matter if you ever produce results, as long as you can convince people to keep voting for you. That must be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s strategy. The self-proclaimed socialist has been in office for a year. Everything she promised during the 2018 elections have turned out to be a lie.
Not once has she tried to abolish ICE, her signature campaign promise. Her “landmark” Green New Deal was an utter failure. Instead of wising up and changing tactics, she stubbornly accuses the rest of the country of not caring as much as her.
But this flash-in-the-pan Democrat appears to be all talk, no substance. She and her “squad” disgraced the Democrat Party (easy to do, I know) when they embraced anti-Semitic views. AOC famously wept by the border fencing, but has done absolutely nothing to improve the situation down South.
Now we know she is a total hypocrite. Recently, she criticized candidates who take money from billionaires. I guess that’s a cardinal sin if you’re a left-wing, idiotic, capitalism-hating socialist.
Oh, wait AOC took money from a billionaire herself.
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has spent a lot of time repeatedly demonizing billionaires and attacking other Democrats for accepting money from billionaires since entering politics.
However, Ocasio-Cortez is now under fire for once again being a hypocrite as FEC records show that Ocasio-Cortez accepted $2,700, the maximum a person can donate to a campaign, from billionaire Tom Steyer — who is now a Democrat presidential candidate — in August 2018. [Source: Daily Wire]
AOC has a nasty habit of saying anything she wants for the cameras. Yet she refuses to be held accountable for her words later. She is often called out for being wrong about basic facts (about our economy and the Constitution). Does she apologize? Does she correct herself? Of course not.
In fact, she has attacked her own party leaders when confronted.
AOC slammed other 2020 Democratic candidates for being “funded by billionaires.” Yet she herself took the max donation from Tom Steyer, a well-known liberal billionaire.
So, what’s the story AOC? One standard for yourself and one for everyone else?
This isn’t the first time we’ve caught AOC being blatantly hypocritical.
The freshman congresswoman, a self-described socialist, campaigned on a platform to expand affordable housing, and her controversial Green New Deal proposal promises “Safe, affordable, adequate housing” for all.

That’s only for starters. She jumped on the Brett Kavanaugh attack train, despite unsubstantiated claims. But when a Democrat, Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax, was exposed for sexual misconduct soon after, she was totally silent.
We all saw AOC’s kabuki theater by the border, “weeping” at a fence. She went on to attack our government over made-up conditions at one of the detention centers (providing no proof of her claims). But when it was time to pass a bill that would have directly improved the conditions of those centers, she voted no.
When asked about this, she said she “needed to send a message.”
The woman’s an idiot. Totally unqualified to lead. She is all talk, no character. Her latest complaints about billionaires is just one in a long line of hypocrisy.
I can’t say for sure why she entered politics. Perhaps she wanted to be famous. Perhaps she thought it would make her rich and powerful.
But one thing’s for sure: she has no intention of making American lives better.
