While the DNC debates were airing, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) just couldn’t help herself from stealing the spotlight. The topic of a “wealth tax” came up, which is one of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) signature plans to fund her “progressive” policies. Warren received some criticism from Andrew Yang and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) about some potential side effects of her proposal.
That’s when AOC chose to jump on Twitter and make the conversation revolve around her.
Tax the rich.
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) October 16, 2019
In a vacuum, this tweet could have been viewed as passive support for Warren. However, given AOC’s status as head of “the squad,” a group of Representatives who support socialist policies, the context is quite different. Her tweet was clearly about bolstering her own status and ego in front of millions of online users.
AOC may believe she’s being smart with this type of commentary. In reality, she’s fallen into an endless obsession with being in the limelight 24/7. AOC is a prime example of how corrupt our youth become by living in front of a screen and buying into socialist propaganda perpetuated by college campuses and fake news.
