“Ocasio-Cortez is first set to appear at 7 p.m. at The Assembly at 449 14th St. Available tickets for the event run between $500 and $2,700,” writes SF Gate. “Next, Ocasio-Cortez will appear at an event hosted by the San Francisco Progressive Alliance, which starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Gray Area/Grand Theater at 2665 Mission St.”
Users on social media pointed out the blatant hypocrisy of the self-avowed ‘socialist,’ saying “I think some redistribution is in order.”
CORTEZ CONFUSION: Socialist Star Says Trump Tried to ‘BAN ALL MUSLIMS’ From US
Liberal superstar and New York Democratic Socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unloaded on the Trump administration this week, falsely claiming the White House was trying to “ban Muslims” from entering the United States.
Cortez slammed the President on social media Monday, saying his administration’s attempt to “ban Muslims” was based on their worldview “where the expansion of one’s rights must come at the cost of another’s.”
I highly doubt that Sessions and this administration, who fought to ban Muslims from this country, value “religious liberty” at all.
They believe in and prop up a false, zero-sum world where the expansion of one’s rights must come at the cost of another’s.
Vote them out in Nov. https://t.co/7TpDni4mnH

Cortez found herself in hot water in recent days after the left-wing candidate referred to Israeli settlers as the “occupiers of Palestine” and claimed closing tax “loopholes” would finance a universal healthcare system in the United States.
DNC CIVIL WAR: Lieberman Urges Party to ABANDON CORTEZ, Says She’ll ‘HURT AMERICA’
Former Democratic Senator and Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman lashed-out at socialist challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in an op-ed published this week, saying her candidacy will “hurt Congress and hurt America.”
Lieberman penned his piece for the Wall Street Journal, titled “Vote Joe Crowley, for Working Families: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hurts the party, Congress and even America” in which he urged New York Democrats to support Joe Crowley; who was defeated in the primary process by Cortez just weeks ago.
“Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party. It doesn’t have to,” writes Lieberman.
“Because the policies Ms. Ocasio-Cortez advocates are so far from the mainstream, her election in November would make it harder for Congress to stop fighting and start fixing problems. Thanks to a small percentage of primary votes, all of the people of New York’s 14th Congressional District stand to lose a very effective representative in Washington,” he adds.
Ocasio-Cortez fired back at her critics this week, saying “People who seek substantive change are almost always told some version of: ‘you’re crazy.’”
People who seek substantive change are almost always told some version of:
– “you’re crazy”
– “you don’t know anything”
– “you’re too [old/young/quiet/loud/whatever]”
To detractors, you will never be good enough. To friends, you are always enough.
So just do your thing! ???
