Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Capitalism Is Irredeemable’

19

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Saturday called capitalism “irredeemable.”

“Capitalism is an ideology of capital — the most important thing is the concentration of capital and to seek and maximize profit,” she said during an interview at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas, according to Bloomberg News.

“To me, capitalism is irredeemable,” she added, arguing that capitalism’s goals come at a cost to people and the environment, Bloomberg reported.

The congresswoman, who has described herself as a democratic socialist, added during her interview that “we should be scared.”

“Just as there’s all this fearmongering that government is going to take over every corporation and government is going to take over every business or every form of production, we should be scared right now because corporations have taken over our government,” she said.

  1. Please, don’t put words in her mouth; as “irredeemable” is way too complicated for a Bronx drinks server. The girl is monosyllabic.

  2. “Socialism is wonderful until you run out of someone else is money”. (Thatcher) Where does she think the money is coming from but capitalism and their taxes and input to the government. There is no magic money coming from a magical place, but hard work and building resources. Maybe she should try it some times, she is not fed by magical money from a magical place and I bet she will never ask where it is coming from or whom. Her script writers are well taught and she knows how to obey to get that magic money from.

    • Because the little immature kinderlach that run Matzav.com are hypocrites. They have proven time and again to be the worst double talking sanctimonious phony’s that exist.

  3. Right on we should become like Russia the workers paradise ……..she really is a great combination of arrogance stupidity and hypocrisy

  4. …..She says, as she holds a capitalist microphone, wears capitalist clothing, in a capitalist building, driven to the place by a capitalist taxi service, as she arrives to the airport in Texas in a capitalist plane, holding her capitalist phone….
    Should I go on?

  5. “The congresswoman, who has described herself as a democratic socialist…” It kind of reminds me of Nazism…

  6. I’m glad that she’s so forthright in expressing her beliefs. That’s the beauty of our democracy. A significant number of our fellow citizens share her viewpoint. Now their ideas will battle it out with the ideas of their opponents.

    President Trump’s election, far from destroying democracy, has led to its flourishing. It was entirely predictable that a response to Trump would arise from the left. Presenting a clear left-wing alternative is more constructive than simply attacking Trump.

    I’m not scared of democracy. I expect the 2020 election season to be a very exciting one.

  7. We have nothing to fear about AOC. She is so ignorant and sounds so stupid that I think she will eventually just fade away. Unlike Rep. Omar who is sharp and smart. That’s the one who scares me!

  8. When she speaks her eyes appear to pop out of her eye sockets and I wondered if she has Hyperthyroidism with a personality disorder. I have seen people with hyperthyroidism with the same appearance before medication. Maybe she should seek medical advice.
