Cortez SLAMMED After Saying BERLIN WALL Built to 'Block Out People'

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.18.19

Recently sworn-in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to face fierce scrutiny regarding her recent social media posts Tuesday; coming under fire after she directly compared President Trump’s border security proposal to the Berlin Wall.

“I think it’s like the Berlin Wall. I think it’s like any other wall designed to separate human beings and block out people who are running away from the humanitarian disasters. I just think it’s wrong,” said Cortez.

“People who compare the US-Mexico border wall to the Berlin wall failed or slept through the easiest history classes in middle school and high school,” wrote one user on social media.

“Dear @AOC: Let me serve as your private professor here. The Berlin Wall was meant to keep people inside the socialist/communist utopia and stop them from fleeing to the decadent capitalist west. So as the New Millennial Lenin, you might want to refrain from using this example,” added another.

AMAZON VS AOC: Tech Giant SLAMS Cortez, Says Couldn’t Work In This 'Environment’

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.15.19

Tech giant Amazon lashed-out at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Friday; blasting the self-described Democratic-Socialist after announcing their plans to abandon its New York City headquarters.

“If you talk to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it’s ‘Never Amazon,'” said Jodi Seth, the head of the policy communications for Amazon. “If you talk to [New York City Councilman Jimmy] Van Bramer, it’s unions.”

“It was that the environment over the course of the past three months had not got any better. There were some local and state elected officials who refused to meet with Amazon and criticized us day in and day out about the plan,” she added.

Cortez praised Amazon’s decision to abandon their NYC proposal, saying “Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world.”

ECONOMICS 101: Cortez Opposed Amazon Because Jobs Weren’t ‘Promised to Local Hires’ or ‘Hiring Union’

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.15.19

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to defend her actions regarding Amazon’s decision to abandon their NYC headquarters Friday; blasting the potential new positions because they weren’t “hiring union” or “promised to local hires.”

“Amazon touting ‘jobs’ (has anyone fact-checked where this 25k number even came from? How many were promised to be local hires?) …but they refused to even consider hiring union when we insisted labor be part of the conversation. Union jobs are a key ladder to the middle class,” she tweeted.

Cortez found herself in hot-water with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo this week, who blasted a small “group of politicians” for putting themselves above their constituents.
