New Yorkers Angry With AOC Over Amazon Loss Rip Her Good: Do ‘Something Positive’ With Your ‘Big Mouth’

Published

It’s pretty safe to say that a lot of business owners and other individuals who are constituents of far-left radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are none too pleased with her performance in office, particularly due to her having chased Amazon out of the Queens area, which is now struggling economically due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Almost two years after Amazon pulled out from a proposal to build a massive headquarters along the Queens waterfront, the site is a vacant eyesore — and, to many locals, the squandered economic opportunity is even more painful amid the coronavirus pandemic,” The New York Post said in a recently published report. “The world’s largest e-tailer abruptly canceled its projected 25,000 job-producing campus in February 2019 after being taken aback by ferocious opposition from local pols — including Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and state Sen. Mike Gianaris.”

The NY Post went on to describe the vacant site as “the scar that won’t heal.” Several individuals spoke with the Post to give their thoughts on the situation.

    Eric Benaim, CEO of Modern Spaces realty: “It’s really crazy what’s going on. The city has no solutions. We have a do-nothing mayor. I’m watching AOC selling ‘Tax the rich’ T-shirts for $58 while businesses are leaving New York. That’s AOC’s solution. Who is going to pay $58 for a T-shirt when you’re out of a job?”

  • Donna Drimer, owner of the Matted LIC art gallery and gift store: “The site just sits there empty. It’s terrible. We’re in the middle of a pandemic. People say, ‘If we only had Amazon.’ We got nothing. AOC, Giannaris, [local Councilman Jimmy] Van Bramer — wake up! People are leaving. Businesses are closing.”

  • Gianna Cerbone, owner of Manducatis Rustica restaurant: “I’m angry at the stupidity. Everybody fears AOC, who has no idea what she’s doing. Opposing Amazon benefited other communities. Imagine if AOC did something positive with her big mouth. I believed in Gianaris. Mike believed in the community until he went so far up AOC’s ass she couldn’t s–t him out.”

  • Bishop Mitchell Taylor, pastor of the Center of Hope International Church: “It’s like we’re living in the 1970s. Things are worse for poor people now. The Amazon project provided a ray of hope to a lot of people. We didn’t want a handout. The largest public housing project in the country wanted the opportunity to do business with the largest retailer in the country.”

A piece published by the NY Times recently noted a study conducted by Sienna College Research Institute that shows that Many New Yorkers blame AOC for destroying the deal with Amazon more so than anyone else.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo tried to do something about the situation and bring Amazon back under the radar.

AOC herself was thrilled with sabotaging the deal, saying it was “incredible,” and claimed the city was “subsidizing” thousands upon thousands of jobs that Amazon would bring to the area.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio later explained that “$3 billion that would go back in tax incentives was only after we were getting the jobs and getting the revenue.”

Now, let’s hope all these folks who are mad at AOC decide to support a different candidate, preferably a more conservative-minded individual who won’t screw up important business deals like this one.

Save conservative media!

Biden Looks Straight Into Camera, Says America Is ‘Morally Deprived’ — Watch

Proud American, right here.

He’s right. For once, Joe Biden is right. America is “morally deprived,” he just didn’t mention the people responsible for the decline. Because of far-left policies, this great nation allows women to get away with murder; allows lawbreakers and criminals to become citizens; and hands out “free” money to those unwilling to work. The only problem with Biden’s sentence is that he didn’t use the words “Democrats are” before “morally derived.” Biden blabbered, “I believe we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. And the simple truth is our soul be troubled as long as systemic racism is allowed to persist. We can’t eliminate ‘zimply’ overnight. We can’t ‘eliminateverthing.’ But it’s corrosive, it’s destructive and it’s costly. It costs every American. Not just who felt the sting of racial injustice. We’re not just less of a – We’re not just a nation of morally deprived because of systemic racism. We’re also less prosperous. We’re less successful. We’re less secure.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=33&v=OM6qa7WgFoU&feature=emb_title From Fox News: Biden revealed the federal government will purchase an additional 100 million doses of vaccine each from Pfizer and Moderna as part of its effort to ramp up the unprecedented vaccination drive. Even with the acquisition of more vaccine supplies, Biden warned that distribution will take time and other precautions, such as wearing masks, should remain a priority for Americans. “The brutal truth is, it’s going to take months before we can the majority of Americans vaccinated – months,” Biden said. “In the next few months, masks, not vaccines, are the best defense against COVID-19. Experts say that wearing masks from now just until April would save 50,000 lives that otherwise would pass away if we don’t wear these masks.” Sound off on Joe in the comments section…

Biden: America ‘Has Never Fully Lived Up to the Founding Principles of This Nation’

He just loves America so much.

President Goofy said some pretty silly things about America and the Trump Administration on Tuesday afternoon. Better get used to hearing that. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not – or whether the country can hang on long enough – we’re stuck with Joe and Kamala. These people and their supporters loathe America. It couldn’t be clearer. WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354147571552440320 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354149480367595521 Reaction from Right Scoop: Americans have not bought into a zero sum game and that’s not how America operates. But this is the bizarrely skewed version of America that Democrats want Americans to believe is happening. Which is why they always drag out this tired and very dishonest propaganda. One of the things that makes America great is that everyone in this country has the opportunity to succeed as long as government stays out of the way. It doesn’t matter if someone grows up in poverty or with a silver spoon in their mouth. Just look at Ben Carson as a great example! Joe is attempting to make it clear that he will be the most “progressive” president this country has ever seen. Not good. Not good at all.
