Shameless AOC is queen Democrat bee of ‘rules for thee but not for me’
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hates the super rich.
Hardly a week goes by without her publicly ranting at billionaires, saying they shouldn’t coexist with America’s poverty.
It’s not just “immorality” that this self-proclaimed working-class firecracker from the Bronx despises, it’s “inequality.”
Furious at America’s economic injustice, she told the New York Times in 2019, “We’re at our richest point we’ve ever been, but we’ve also been our most unequal.”
So you would imagine Ocasio-Cortez would see something like the annual Met Gala in New York as the epitome of disgustingly immoral and unequal capitalist excess, attended by the richest and most famous people in the US all flaunting how rich they are in an orgy. of lavish over-the-top indulgence.
As it turns out, young Alexandria was so desperate to be there, partying with the world’s most privileged people, that she brushed aside her own anti-corruption lawyer’s warning not to go as a guest of Vogue magazine.
Only, being a good socialist, she wouldn’t pay for her $35,000 ticket, or another one for her boyfriend.
No, she wanted $70,000 in free gifts and later lied about who gave them to her.
Then, as The Post revealed in shocking detail yesterday, she had her staff haggle over the cost of all her VIP trimmings, from the haute couture white dress — which, with comic irony, had the words “TAX THE RICH” on it. — down to her makeup, limo, and even her boyfriend’s bow tie.
None of this should surprise seasoned observers of Ocasio-Cortez’s laughable hypocrisy when it comes to flaunting wealth or nagging about financial equality.
For an interview magazine photo shoot several years ago, in which she draped herself around construction workers and spoke of the urgent need to do more to tackle financial inequality, she wore a $1,990 Gabriela Hearst blazer, matching wool pants from $890 and a $625 Manolo Blahnik. pumps.
And another time, she said New York’s yellow cabs are “in financial ruin because of Uber’s unregulated expansion” — only to reveal that her own campaign spent $4,000 on 160 Uber rides in California (where she’s not even active). used to be). office) over a period of three months.
She’s not the only Democrat with a penchant for the opposite of what they preach.
Remember when Gavin Newsom locked up California like Fort Knox during the COVID pandemic, but then got caught violating lockdown rules to attend a friend’s birthday party at one of America’s most expensive restaurants, the French Laundry?
He called it “a mistake,” but he knew exactly what he was doing.
Just like he did when he again broke his own COVID rules to pose for photos with Los Angeles Mayor Gil Garcetti, San Francisco Mayor London Breed and the immunocompromised Magic Johnson, all without a mask, during the Rams’ 49ers Divisional Championship, as if somehow the virus didn’t infiltrate VIP hospitality suites.
And just like Stacey Abrams, Georgia’s then Democratic gubernatorial nominee, did last year when she sat maskless and beaming with delight in a classroom full of miserable-looking kids who were all forced to wear masks.
New York’s disgraced ex-Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law in 2019 a Women’s Equality Act bill banning sexual harassment in the workplace, and a workplace anti-discrimination law that he said was necessary to ensure “continued, persistent culture” of abuse.
Then the governor had to resign due to continued workplace harassment and abuse.
President Biden’s list of hypocritical statements would cover the entire southern border if it were a wall.
But a typical example is his outraged attack on former President Donald Trump’s “irresponsible” handling of classified documents found at his home weeks before classified documents were found at Biden’s home.
President Barack Obama was just as bad, leading the condemnation of Trump’s harsh immigration policies without mentioning that he himself deported more than 3 million migrants in his eight-year tenure, or that he also separated families and caged children.
As for Hillary Clinton, where do you start?
Perhaps with the outrage she expressed at the prospect of the White House being occupied by a serial womanizer accused of sexually assaulting women unless it was her husband and not Trump, and the need to believe all female accusers, unless they accuse Bill, in which case they were liars.
It’s the same duplicitous thinking practiced by liberal celebrities.
People like Prince Harry and Leonardo DiCaprio love to lecture on the environment and climate change, but take private jets for buses.
Meryl Streep feigned disgust at friend Harvey Weinstein’s sexual depravity, but once led a standing ovation at the Oscars for fugitive child molester Roman Polanski when he won an award in absentia for evading American justice.
And Jussie Smollett, who hated MAGA, went on a rampage at liars and racists, then staged a racist attack on herself.
And so it goes on nauseatingly.
The one common theme of all these two-faced Democratic miscreants is that they invariably escape the poison of self-righteous slander that THEY would rain on the Republicans’ heads if it were the other way around.
That’s the beauty of being a liberal hypocrite: your fellow liberals will never call you out on it!
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knows this, which is why she constantly thinks she can get away with it, and is so breathtakingly shameless to do so.
When it comes to “rules for you, not me,” AOC is queen bee.
