SOCIALISM USA! AOC Says ‘The People’s Movement is a Mandate’ After Primary Win in New York City

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.24.20

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took a victory lap Tuesday night following her primary victory in New York City; saying the “people’s movement” is now a “mandate” for her far-left agenda.

“When I won in 2018, many dismissed our victory as a ‘fluke,'” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Tuesday after it became clear she would win the primary. “Our win was treated as an aberration, or bc my opponent ‘didn’t try.’ So from the start, tonight’s race was important to me. Tonight we are proving that the people’s movement in NY isn’t an accident. It‘s a mandate.”

With 100% of the vote in, Ocasio-Cortez defeated her Democratic opponents with 70% of the vote. Her district includes sections of Queens and the Bronx.

“Wall Street CEOs, from Goldman Sachs to Blackstone, poured in millions to defeat our grassroots campaign tonight. But their money couldn’t buy a movement,” she said. “Here’s to speaking truth to power.”

AOC ERUPTS: Ocasio-Cortez Rants About Free Stuff, Complains ‘Nobody Giving Us a Damn Thing’

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.11.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez launched a bizarre rant this week regarding her far-left proposals and entitlements; publicly complaining that “nobody is giving us a damn thing” and “we build this on our own.”

“It belongs to us anyway, it doesn’t belong to anybody else. I’m tired of this idea that Medicare for All, that tuition free public colleges are some hand-out from somebody else. Nobody else is giving us a damn thing. We build this on our own. We fund it, we establish it, we fight for it, no one should be able to take it away from us like they have been,” ranted Ocasio-Cortez.

The Congresswoman made similar comments last month, saying her policies don’t promote “free stuff” but call for “public goods.”

“Public education, libraries, & infrastructure policies (which we‘ve had before in America and elsewhere in the world!) are not ‘free stuff.’ They are PUBLIC GOODS. And they are worth investing in, protecting, & advancing for all society and future generations,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

“This is not free stuff, they’re public goods. They’re public goods. I never want to hear the term ‘free stuff’ ever again. I’m tired of hearing some of these neoliberal folks who are trying to flip the script on us,” said AOC.

AOC: US Needs ‘Climate Transition, Free Education, Healthcare, Apprenticeships’ to Combat Coronavirus

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.16.20

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in Monday on the country’s efforts to combat the effects of Coronavirus; calling for “climate transition,” education expansion, free healthcare, and apprenticeships to offset the disease.

“What we should seriously start to consider now for the medium & long term (bc it will take time) is New Deal-style policy. We need a mix of policies to help put a lot of people to work. Climate transition, edu expansion w/ apprenticeships & colleges, M4A. These are jobs bills,” posted AOC on social media.

Her comments come hours after NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announce a citywide shutdown on all theaters, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs to prevent new infections.

“Mayor Bill de Blasio announced late Sunday that the Big Apple’s nightlife will shut down and its restaurants and bars will only provide takeout or delivery service as authorities struggle to get ahead of the mounting coronavirus pandemic,” reports the NY Post.

Businesses have until 9am Tuesday morning to close their dining rooms to patrons. The move also applies to Starbucks, McDonalds, and other quick-service restaurants.

“Our lives are all changing in ways that were unimaginable just a week ago,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“We are taking a series of actions that we never would have taken otherwise in an effort to save the lives of loved ones and our neighbors,” he added.

“This virus can spread rapidly through the close interactions New Yorkers have in restaurants, bars and places where we sit close together,” de Blasio’s statement said. “We have to break that cycle.”
