Socialist New York City Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez isn’t letting a crisis go to waste. The notoriously inaccurate leftist is taking to Twitter to demand the federal government hand out “coronavirus reparations” to Americans based on skin color.

“COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities. “Why? Because the chronic toll of redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions,” Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted Friday.


“Inequality is a comorbidity. COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations,” she wrote.

“Redlining” refers to an alleged practice banks used to supposedly deny home loans to minorities, which has nothing to do with viral lung infections.  The COVID-19 pandemic has also paid no attention to wealth, first striking wealthier Americans more likely to engage in international travel including many celebrities and political figures.

Ocasio Cortez’s rant about New York city’s poor housing came after holding a “virtual town hall” from her Washington. D.C. luxury apartment while other members of Congress returned to their districts.

“While Queens and The Bronx have lines down the block at hospitals and grocery stores, AOC is holed up at a brand new luxury apartment where she shops at Whole Foods in her lobby,” said  Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, one of her Democrat primary opponents.

“That’s shameful. No wonder voters think that she is out of touch. She has a golf-simulator and infinity pool and Peloton Cycle room as well as other luxuries while families in the Bronx and Queens are worried about how long the lines are at the grocery store and where they are going to get their next paycheck. AOC isn’t even here to see their desperation and their struggle to survive with her own eyes,” said Caruso-Cabrera.

Ocasio Cortez was elected less than two years ago after criticizing the then-incumbent for living in Washington, D.C. instead of returning to New York when Congress wasn’t in session.

In case you do not recognize it, this is called pandering Polarization, it is a Bolshevik/ Nazi tactic. Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf, “that if the Jew had not existed, I would have had to create him.”
“Wenn der Jude nicht existiert hätte, hätte ich ihn erschaffen müssen.” Understand she and handlers are Bolsheviks and Islamic controlled. She controlled by the Young Turks, The Brains Behind AOC Part II – YouTubeThe Brains Behind AOC Part II – YouTube The Brains Behind AOC Part II – YouTube

Got to hand it to this brainless idiotic twit, just like all liberals she has no problem spending other peoples money on BULLS**T! Gee AOC since you feel so strongly and passionately about this issue, donate your salary, for which you haven’t done a damned thing to earn to the cause. Since you socialists believe in ‘wealth redistribution, this shouldn’t be a problem unless you’re an all ‘do as i say not as i do’ hypocrite. Until then shut your F****N pie hole. Why the people of New York haven’t gotten rid of this waste of their time and taxes is well beyond me and I’m sure a lot of others. An even more important question: who in the hell wasted their votes on this amoeba? Whoever did, I hope you’re satisfied. As they say actions and elections have consequences, some of them dire. Next time do some research before voting especially for anybody who’s a ‘dumbocrap’ aka liberal which should be an automatic NO vote, as if it takes a genius to figure this out after all the BS the liberals do. Anyone promising ‘free this and free that’ is full of S**T, period. In life there’s no such thing as a ‘free ride’. For those out there who don’t get this it’s simple and is a basic tenet of economics. Wake up America!

She is proof that we need an INTELLIGENCE TEST before someone can run for congress. Surely most Democrats would not pass.
Patty Murry and her claim of Osama’s day care centers
Hank and his fear of Guam capcizing.
Bill Clinton and his serial raping.
Hillary and her “what difference does it make now.”

Political correctness and the idea of “racism” is itself a disease of the mind and spirit, and once you let it in, notice how it NEVER goes away, no matter how much you pander to it.

It only continues to ramp up it’s claims of oppression, and redefine “injustice” to include more and more, to the point of ridiculous, and even beyond ridiculous. In fact, they had to change the dynamics so that you can’t even get rid of it if you wanted to, by claiming it’s “systemic” meaning unintentional and always there whether anyone is actually being racist or not.
Also notice how the grievance groups have had their existence redefined to where it is virtually impossible for them to suffer naturally . They can’t just have bad luck, get sick, be lazy and lose their job, or even commit a crime, because whatever it is, it’s due to “racism” of some kind, lurking somewhere, again, even if unintentional.

In other words, without “racism” all ethnic groups would live continuous care free, problem free, pain free, disease free lives and never die, because that also has to be due to racism. Suffering or misfortune of any kind can happen to white people and be no one’s fault, but ethnic people cannot suffer without racism. This is the new assumption behind the hyper-PC agenda of grievance that cannot be placated no matter what or how much we do for them.

You refer to “Brains behind AOC!” Tlaib should be put on an isolated island with AOC and they can rule it the way they want!

SHE HAS NO BRAINS OR BEHIND HER! SHE SURE ISN’T THE AMERICAN WAY!

Thank traitor obama and his secret night flights to bring the muslims in by the plane load; they have taken over whole sections of several states, complete with ‘No Go’ aeras and Sharia courts; most, of course, collect welfare benefits, for their four-wife families and dozens of kids. This will not end well; in nowhere they settle does it ever. This is what Tlaib meant when she brazenly announced: ‘… the muslims are here’. She means here to take over (See: Dhimmitude).

They shouldn’t be allowed in this, or any other country; they should be kept in their own country. Those countries are a mess. Why? Because of wuo lives there.

Please voters of New York, get rid of this lying and thieving socialistic idiotic, brainless twit, and waste of time and your tax dollars ASAP. What’s the charm of this amoeba that according to my recollection, screwed you out of approximately 25 thousand good paying jobs with amazon and now just look where you’re at? And i thought New Yorkers were smart, evidently i was wrong. Thank God she’s not here in California where we have many like her and some even worse. One more thing: just what has she done to improve your lives? Go ahead, I’m waiting for an answer but won’t hold my breath.

Convey AOC to the Brig with all haste so she can be interrogated as to the validity of her Black-Brown declaration to prove her ‘reparations’ extortion of Americans, and then removal to Gitmo to a cage where she can meet with her JAG for her tribunal.
