New York socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims to be against capitalism, but a recent photograph of herself says the opposite.
On Valentine’s Day last week, Twitter user named “The Surley Libertarian” took to Twitter to share an image of Ocasio-Cortez walking with a Starbucks coffee in her hand while she’s typing away on her iPhone.
She rages publicly against capitalism, all the while still enjoying its benefits.

It doesn’t take much to see how Ocasio-Cortez is a total hypocrite. According to Fox News AOC fined by the state for not providing workers’ compensation coverage for a month last year.
The failure to provide the coverage to campaign staff is particularly awkward for Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist who rose to stardom after unseating top Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley with a campaign theme of improving conditions for the working class.
“The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid,” state Workers Compensation Board spokeswoman Melissa Stewart told the New York Daily News.
Last year, Ocasio-Cortez was also mocked after lamenting the shuttering of a coffee shop in New York, even though it closed its doors thanks to the wage hike in the state – a policy that she supports.
“The restaurant I used to work at is closing its doors,” she wrote in a tweet. “I’m a normal, working person who chose to run for office because I believe we can have a better future.”
She must have forgotten all about her ‘roots’ as a coffee barista when she purchased that capitalist coffee? Or maybe, like she has proven time and time again that her priorities and morals change by the minute. The American people aren’t falling for it despite how badly the leftist new media likes to spin it.
