Ocasio-Cortez Rips Dem Candidates for Accepting Billionaire Donations, But She Did It Too

Just slightly hypocritical on this one, AOC…

What Democrats love to do is discourage Americans from turning a profit through innovation. In other words, to lefties, Bill Gates should not have billions of dollars for putting a product out into the world that hundreds of millions of people use on a daily basis.

To the economically illiterate, it doesn’t make sense that person A has a single dollar more than person B, regardless of personal or professional circumstances. But that’s not how America operates, as we are a collection of individuals. If people want to buy what you have to offer, then keep on selling. Capitalism, baby.

When liberals drive past a $10 million home, they’ll say, nobody should live like that. But when conservatives drive past the same house, they’ll say, everybody should live like that. Quite the difference.

Check out the latest from AOC, who is ripping Democrat presidential candidates for doing something she did, herself – via Daily Wire:

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.

At a California rally for fellow socialist Bernie Sanders, AOC screeched, “For anyone who accuses us for instituting purity tests — it’s called having values. It’s called giving a damn. It’s called having standards for your conduct to not be funded by billionaires but to be funded by the people.

There are rights and then there are privileges.

There are some things certain people might think are rights when they are actually privileges, and those people voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

One of those people is the dangerously far-left freshman Democrat.

One woman who was searching for an apartment in NYC was asked to pay a $100 application fee, followed by a $400 “processing fee,” even though such upfront fees had been capped at $20 as a result of new rent laws passed by New York lawmakers in June.

AOC just had to speak up, you guys…

Rent has gotten to extortion-level highs in New York City, and there’s a whole lot of lawbreaking that happens because so many working people are on the brink.

Housing is a right. NY’s rent laws must be enforced if abusive, predatory actors are breaking them.

Save conservative media!

Marco Rubio Gets Confronted By MSNBC Host Over Saying Some Journalists ‘Giddy’ Over COVID-19

Sen. Marco Rubio has found himself in the hot seat with MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle after making the comment that some journalists are thrilled over the spread of the coronavirus, a statement he defended. Ruhle asked Rubio to explain the tweet which he made earlier in the week, noting a portion where he said: “Some in our media can’t contain their glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more #CoronaVirus cases than #China…Beyond being grotesque, it’s bad journalism.” https://twitter.com/marcorubio/status/1244279416819273729 Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “I need to ask you this, because I’m a journalist,” Ruhle said. “We’re not just some personalities. You called out journalism. And I need to understand why on earth you did this.” Rubio said some journalists are “doing exactly what I said.” “Well, because there are some journalists that were doing exactly what I said,” the Florida Republican responded. “I read reports about how some Republicans are doing this, or some members of Congress are doing that. I don’t know what other word to describe who’s doing something and who isn’t.” Rubio gave a few examples of certain situations where he believes that journalists expressed happiness in reporting on coronavirus figures and noted that he said “some” not all journalists were behaving this way. https://twitter.com/TPMLiveWire/status/1246081048846401536 Rubio found support among many on the right, including Caleb Hull who tweeted: https://twitter.com/CalebJHull/status/1244311946817671173 The bottom line is, there are probably some journalists who are excited by the prospects that this virus is providing for the progressive movement. After all, Democrats are using this situation to try and pass a bunch of pet projects they want made law through inside these coronavirus relief packages, so is it so far fetched to think liberal journalists might think the same way? Regardless, here’s to hoping this all goes away sooner rather…

Still — it got me.” Baldwin is the second CNN anchor to contract the virus. Chris Cuomo said Tuesday he began feeling sick after being “exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive.” According to her statement, Baldwin is taking time off to recover. “I look forward to being back on [TV] and seeing. You real soon,” Baldwin said.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Brooke Baldwin (@brooke_baldwin) on Apr 3, 2020 at 9:44am PDT While it’s easy to be vicious toward our political enemies, even in times like these, we should all be wishing Baldwin well as she battles this horrible sickness.
