AOC Blows $1.4 Million To Sell Anti-Capitalist Merch With Her Initials
Far-left Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now investing heavily in her e-commerce store to sell expensive t-shirts, sweatshirts, and other merchandise. While she has no formal leadership role due, her celebrity power shadows over the entire Democrat Party.
According to campaign disclosure data from the Federal Election Commission, Ocasio-Cortez spent a whopping $1.4 million to pay a left-wing political merchandise firm. Along with her name, the merchandise featured leftist catchphrases such as “Tax the Rich” and “Abolish ICE.” The firm also worked on the Elizabeth Warren and Barack Obama campaigns.
Ocasio-Cortez previously commissioned the same firm for about half the new amount, which claims that its products are “ethically” made in US factories. It is unclear where the products are sourced from, however.
An $88 sweater titled “The Unapologetic Street Series Team AOC” quickly sold out on the site. Among the old slogans, there are new items that promote canceling student debt and a “Drink Water, Don’t Be A Racist” t-shirt.
In December 2020, Ocasio-Cortez claimed that Republicans just “sit around on leather chairs all day.”
She tweeted, “The thing that these conservative Senators don’t seem to understand is that I’ve actually had a physically difficult working-class job without good healthcare most of my adult life. I bring that work ethic to Congress & to my community. They sit around on leather chairs all day.”
“Republicans like to make fun of the fact that I used to be a waitress, but we all know if they ever had to do a double they’d be the ones found crying in the walk-in fridge halfway through their first shift bc someone yelled at them for bringing seltzer when they wanted sparkling [water],” she added.
Ocasio-Cortez is one of the loudest leftist voices promoting the defunding of ICE, which would allow more illegal aliens to sneak inside the country.
Former ICE Director Tom Homan warned against Ocasio-Cortez’s radical positions, and her efforts to alert illegals if ICE is in their area.
“But here’s an elected lawmaker, she’s a congresswoman standing on a stage telling people how to obstruct ICE, tipping off people ICE is looking and she needs to realize that 9-out-of-10 of everybody ICE arrested last year was a convicted criminal or pending criminal charges,” Homan continued. “Last year, 137,000 criminals, 2,000 were murderers, 12,000 sex offenses, 45,000 assaults, 62,000 drug offenses, 10,000 weapons offenses, and she wants the community to tip these people if ICE is in their neighborhood operating.”
Homan concluded, “ICE’s job is already extremely dangerous, now she’s making it more dangerous.”
