Out of Touch? Check Out the Price Tag on the Outfit Ocasio-Cortez Wore for Photo Shoot With Construction Workers.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

When a person claims to be a socialist, what they’re really saying is that they hate poverty — not a bad thing, obviously — and believe that no one should be rich, as wealth should be evenly distributed so that everyone has a piece of the pie.

However, when it comes to practicing these principles in their own personal lives, it turns out the vast majority of socialists are huge hypocrites and closeted capitalists, including the darling of the Democratic Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a confessing socialist.

Despite spewing nauseating idealism about economic equality — which doesn’t and will never, exist in the real world, only equality of opportunity — and trying her best to act like she understands the struggles of America’s blue collar/middle class citizens, it turns out Ocasio-Cortez is just another out of touch politician who loves money.

A great example of this is the price tag on the recent outfit she wore as part of a photo shoot with, get this, a group of construction workers. Check this out.

In a photo shoot for Interview magazine, Ocasio-Cortez was pictured wearing a $3,500 outfit as she posed with construction workers.​ She was decked out in a Gabriela Hearst blazer ($1,990), Gabriela Hearst pants ($890), and some Monolo Blahnik shoes ($625).

“I’ve never met a socialist who had the faintest idea of redistributing a penny of their own money. They’re all about taking all the time,” said one Redittor.

“As a barmaid she took all $500 of the tips after a holiday night at the bar, stiffing the waitresses with only $50,” said another. “She is only a socialist if she can take as much as she wants and leave the scraps for everyone else.”

Said yet another: “No, she’s a real socialist. This is what socialism is. You tell the people that they deserve more, and those stinky ‘rich’ people aren’t paying their fair share. Then you join the ranks of the elite, bu[y] expensive clothes, lake houses, Audis, etc., and you’re set. This is socialism. This is literally what it is.”

As it was so eloquently put by the Reddit users above, the vast majority of socialists only care about redistributing wealth after they’ve stuck their hand in the cookie jar for themselves.

And yet, many liberals in this country continue to think these kind of politicians have their best interest at heart. Sad.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
