Socialists want everybody to get everything — as long as they get theirs first.
And socialists looooove money. Take Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont Independent who touts himself as a socialist. He’s got three houses, including a shorefront house on Lake Champlain.
Same goes for the hot new socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She’s everywhere now as she runs for a New York seat in the U.S. House. And with that comes money — and bling.
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).
The story hit the pages of Reddit, prompting plenty of responses.
“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.”
Ocasio-Cortez has painted herself as growing up rough in the Bronx, while in reality she grew up mostly in wealthy Westchester County, the Daily Mail reported.
