Self-described Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) has made some statements of late that caused a group to put billboards up in New York City slamming the freshman lawmaker.
AOC was not pleased.
For example, here’s the first one…
From Daily Wire:
Job Creators Network, a nonpartisan organization founded by entrepreneurs like Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, purchased a billboard in New York City slamming socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for killing tens of thousands of jobs for New Yorkers that would have generated billions of dollars in economic activity.

AOC saw the first billboard. She figured she had to respond.
She sent a tweet calling the sign “wack”:
Few things effectively communicate the power we’ve built in fighting dark money & anti-worker policies like billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards (this one is funded by the Mercers).
(PS fact that it’s in Times Sq tells you this isn’t for/by NYers.) https://t.co/B4QTPi1r2k

The people behind the billboard then saw AOC’s response.
They decided to go after her a second time…

Now, Job Creators Network is back for thirds after AOC recently declared that she is “the boss”…
From BizPac Review:
A conservative, pro-business group unveiled the digital billboards mocking the 29-year-old progressive darling nicknamed “AOC” for her initials and her comments made during a February town hall event in which she touted herself as “the boss.”
“Hey AOC, you’re the ‘boss?’” read one billboard on the side of a skyscraper in Manhattan while another below it read, “We don’t think so. The American people are the boss.”

About that “boss” comment…
AOC: “I’m at least trying and they’re not. If you’re trying, you’ve got all the power, you’re driving the agenda, you’re doing all this stuff.“
“Like, I just introduced Green New Deal two weeks ago and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else is even trying — because no one else has even tried!“
“I’m like you try! You do it! Cuz you’re not!“
“So until you do it, I’M THE BOSS! How about that?“
WATCH her “ego trip” unfold:
After unveiling her “Green New Deal,” which would cost American taxpayers tens of trillions of dollars over a decade, AOC is now saying America is native land for all Latinos and ICE and DHS need to be abolished.
You can’t make this up.
All Latinos have a race-based right to migrate to the United States, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Thursday.
AOC: “We have to have … respect for the right of human mobility.
AOC: “It is a right. We are standing on native land, and Latino people are descendants of native people. We cannot be told and criminalized simply for our identity or our status.“
About eliminating ICE and the DHS:
Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) called for an end to funding the Department of Homeland Security during a MoveOn.org event Thursday.
AOC: “This is one of the most urgent moral issues and crises that we have in America right now. This is not a political issue. Children dying in detention centers should not be a partisan concern. It should be a universal concern for every American in the United States.“
On Trump, Ocasio-Cortez noted: “He said and spoke of the idea that he likes, quote-unquote, legal immigration. But that is a lie. The president does not like any form of immigration. He has been cutting down and imposing restrictions on legal forms, on the diversity visa lottery, on family unification, and so on.“
AOC: “We’re here to say that an agency like ICE, which repeatedly and systematically violates human rights, does not deserve a dime.“
