It’s been a minute since self-described socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez embarrassed herself. The last time, she was caught partying in Republican-run Florida—where there were no mask mandates or COVID restrictions. Her response to her critics was that they were just jealous they couldn’t date her. Spoken like a true, respected member of Congress—not wait, it wasn’t.
Now, AOC is back. It seems like she’s losing her edge. The woman who was once the darling of online liberal media outlets is now seemingly unraveling. She is up for re-election this November. And, while she might not have much competition, she appears to be struggling to make a case to her supporters. After all, she’s done bupkiss since entering office.
But this little stunt is not going to win over fans.
“Let me tell you a secret,” the renowned intellectual Congresswoman whispered. “Most people don’t really know what capitalism is. Most people don’t even know what socialism is. But most people are not capitalists, because they don’t have capitalist money. They’re not billionaires … The label doesn’t matter as much as just talking about policies. That’s easier to understand. Do you think people should die because they can’t afford insulin? Do you think that fossil fuel CEOs should decide whether the planet gets set on fire? Me neither.” [Source: PJ Media]
Pssst. I’ll tell you a secret: AOC is an embarrassment to Congress and to women everywhere.

You can watch the spectacle for yourself. Conjuring up troubling memories of a whispering Joe Biden, AOC holds the camera much too close to her face to whisper about socialism. Let’s not even bother with how inaccurate she is for the moment. The bizarre clip speaks volumes about how she thinks of Americans and her own supporters.
Remember when Joe Biden did much the same when a reporter asked him a question? Why all the whispering? It’s a form of mockery. AOC (and Joe) is whispering, the way you would when sharing a secret. But this display is supposed to say what she’s saying isn’t a secret and that you should know it already. She is basically saying you—and all who oppose her radical agenda—are stupid.
Psst—AOC! Here’s the real secret: you have no idea what you’re talking about. AOC is a con artist with no clue how the U.S. economy works. During her video, she claims we need socialism so that sick people can afford insulin. Yet we’ve seen again and again that when the government shells out cash on socialist programs, it only increases costs and limits the availability of needed items.
Do you want to know the best way to provide quality items (like medicine) at lower costs? Allow the companies that produce those goods to compete in a free market for customers’ cash. Gee, what is that called again? Oh, yeah, capitalism.
For someone like AOC to actually be a member of Congress is a total disgrace.
