Goggle-Eyed Socialist, Occasional-Cortex, Gets FINED For Failure To CARE For Her Workers

Written by Wes Walker on January 11, 2019

Guess what, AOC, there’s a downside to being a Media Darling — when you screw up, the whole world knows it.

Like getting fined for failing to protect your employees properly.

The same person who thinks that EVERYONE should have should government-administered single-payer health care didn’t even provide workers’ compensation coverage for her own employees.

She got slapped with a fine for failing to do so.

If this were a story about an ‘evil Republican’ it would be presented as proof positive that big-bad-Republicans don’t really care about the little people. But don’t expect any hit pieces on the Left this time — this story is about a ‘rising star’ from the Democrats.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s 2018 congressional campaign was fined by the state of New York for failing to provide the proper workers’ compensation coverage to campaign staffers.

“The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018 to April 30, 2018,” Melissa Stewart, the spokeswoman for New York’s Workers Compensation Board, told The New York Daily News. “[It] was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid.”

“This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries,” Stewart continued.

The self-proclaimed Democratic socialist has been portraying herself as a champion for workers’ rights. During her campaign, she advocated for a $15-an-hour minimum wage and a Federal Jobs Guarantee because according to her website, “anyone who is willing and able to work shouldn’t struggle to find employment.”

Interestingly, the progressive congresswoman bemoaned in August the closing of a restaurant where she was previously employed — however, the restaurant cited an Ocasio Cortez-endorsed policy as a partial reason for its closure.

This must be awkward news for a self-described ‘Champion’ of workers’ rights.

It’s perfectly valid for her to hold OTHER people’s feet to the fire, because of big bad business mistreating their workers.

But when they work for her, she should get the benefit of the doubt? What, rules only apply to the OTHER people?

In that case, maybe she DOES understand Socialism after all.

She’s already starting to sound like a proper Bolshevik.

With chants of ‘Drain the Swamp’, we sent Trump to Washington for a reason: to protect our Freedoms from the all-consuming appetite of a Leviathan Government.

That’s why he started slashing red tape and taxes. He’s getting Government out of the way, so free people — individuals and businesses — can give the double middle-finger to the scolds who recently told us ‘you didn’t build that’.

Biden claimed that Republicans wanted to “put y’all back in chains”. But in two years as President, he’s done the opposite.

Trump came to take the shackles off so that the world could once again hear the Roar of true American Freedom.

Artist Doug Giles’s latest piece from his MAGA art collection — called “I’ve Come To Pick A Fight” — celebrates that heartbeat of what made America Great in the first place…


More specifically, a free people.

A free people whose hearts and minds are truly unleashed to run down their unique dreams of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
