Communists Hate Capitalism

Do you think she knows that there’s only one Koch brother still alive?

Ocasio-Cortez also said that capitalism was flawed at its core, saying, ‘To me, capitalism at its core, what we’re talking about when we talk about that, is the absolute pursuit of profit at all human, environmental, and social cost.’

 

She said that under the economic system, a nation’s power is held by an elite and wealthy minority, calling out billionaires¬†Charles Koch and David Koch, whose family is worth more than $100 billion and have a hold on the fuel and oil industries.

 

‘If it ultimately comes down to a billionaire or the Koch brothers or the Koch family having control over the vast majority or large plurality of our oil assets in the United States, if it’s a handful of very wealthy families having control over – you know, private families having control over means of production, that is essentially the capitalist system that we live in, she said.

    Much like Bernie Sanders, AOC and her ilk scorn capitalism while reaping as many of its benefits as they can put their hands on. Frauds to the bone.

    I wonder if she feels the same was about Fuckerberg, Caveman Dorsey, Blumpkinberg? Or Musk, Bezos, Soros, Buffet, Gates? Is it just the active conservative / R’s that she hates… if she called out one warm and one cold Koch and no one else… then fuck her hypocrisy.

    I bet AOC thinks that BPM is a souless capital construct just trying to make millions off unfortunate people due to systemic racist and classist policies.

    She would happily ignore the fact that BPM has been swindled out of over 5 million dollars from grifters, including the biggest grifter in the world, the US Government.

    Hey, you better not rip on AOC or she will think you want to date her.

    I just threw up in my mouth. I don’t date smug idiots – one of us is enough for me :)

    Wow, let’s take clueless to whole new levels, right? How much of a stretch is it that if the ‘oil barons’ were lib donors, Biden would not have cut his own country’s energy throat? All those hot billionaires right now and she goes for the living and dead conservatives getting screwed directly by her as the example? Libs are so far beyond hypocritical, it would be unimaginable if we didn’t see it for ourselves.
