...Annnnnd the hits keep coming from mental-midget Marxist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.



New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested over the weekend that the crime surge in New York City is likely because struggling residents are forced to shoplift in order to "feed their child."

In a virtual town hall meeting she hosted Thursday, some clips of which were shared by The Hill, the 30-year-old Democratic congresswoman was asked about the troubling uptick in violent crimes overtaking the city.

"Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren't paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent and so they go out, and they need to feed their child and they don't have money," Ocasio-Cortez continued, "so they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry.”

(bolding mine)
www.foxnews.com...

AOC insists the 600% increase in NYC crime has absolutely nothing to do with the defund police effort, nor the fact that NYC police are not supported by local and state government and are resigning and retiring in droves. Neither, likely, does she believe it has anything to do with so many criminals not being arrested, being released back on the streets in increasing numbers...nor their cases being refused to be heard by Leftist judges.

Ummm...for some reason, the Left really look up to this idiot...and consider her to be, not only a leader to be celebrated...but some kind of a monu-mental genius.
This says as much about the Left's 'Wokeness' and intelligence, as anything else.


It also shows us what a genius Joe Biden is, with his choosing of AOC as one of his top campaign advisors.--BUT I KID.

I wish. If this were the case I'd rob the Balthazar Bakery every damn day, best bread in the area.

I bet I can tell you what parts of New York City don't have any increase in crime, starting with Arthur Ave in the Bronx.

Maybe the shop lifters are the ones who could of gone to work for Amazon if she hadn't of protested their want to come to town.

If reported crime is up six fold, wouldn't we have the reports showing all this stolen bread?
Or is she just making nonsense up (again) with no basis or connection to reality?

What I see is millions of people without jobs having nothing better to do. Idle hands and all that.

If NYC could only ban bakeries...it'd be great again.
Unfortunately, the Marxists love their breadlines.

I'm actually hoping it gets a little edgier, New York has been boring since the 90's.

Well, as a trained bartender, she's used to speaking to drunks.
I'm sure they thought she was brilliant, as well.

67% or something stupid of people getting Federal stimulus checks are making more now than they did kinda blows her theory out of the water.

That's true.
They should never have been able to make a profit from being laid off.

This is 2020, clowns on the left of me and a joker to the right.

We got the left condemning no criminals and the right condemning all peaceful protesters as criminals.

The collective left and right has lost their minds under partisan hate.

I refuse to vote for Democrat or Republican.

They never should have been laid off or locked down to begin with.

Bread, bucks, green backs, cash, moolah, clams, dough, coin of the realm. It doesn’t tug at the heart strings Like a crust of bread to feed your hungry orphan. This chick way, way out there. Three fries short of a happy meal.

112 days And counting down until the election. Hopefully this AOC clown will be replaced with a serious candidate that is willing to work for her constituents.

You can't create a new game if you continue to play the old.

I think you are aiming to high.
People need to start at lower levels.
Replace our members of the other two branches and then the president.
30 plus year politicians like pelosi and McCain need to never happen again.

That is where it needs to start.

i live right by the city, and my friends live in the city.
when this skank was running, my friend changed his fbb picture to a pic of the A0C.
when i looked her up, i remember thinking,why is she pandering the soccialist agenda.
and i knew she would win, because demo fools will do anything the media tells them.

its similar to how ultra repubz tell us jfk--jr is alive and working for trummp.
but trummp is just trying to keep warz and taxxxes going, not trying to steal my liberty.

its bad, but its the same nonsense as always.
