Remember the bad old days when Communist Party Bosses of the old Soviet Union would wave their collective fingers at the West and lecture to us about equality and the dictatorship of the proletariat?
All the while, the same Party Bosses lived in opulent dachas in their de-facto palatial estates on the Black Sea and in the forests surrounding Moscow and Leningrad.
It’s all the more amazing that despite George Santayana’s prophetic warning, many still refuse to learn from past mistakes.
Enter Democratic Socialist Bernie “The Seven-Figure Socialist” Sanders and his cute lil’ side-piece, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Well, this article is really focusing more on Ocasio-Cortez’s hypocrisy than her rather comely Tinker Bell-esque frame.
As Thomas Lifeson noted on The American Thinker, Ocasio-Cortez has taken to social media to slam Uber drivers for somehow being responsible for the recent suicides of four Yellow Cab drivers.
NYC’s fourth driver suicide. Yellow cab drivers are in financial ruin due to the unregulated expansion of Uber. What was a living wage job now pays under minimum.
– to call Uber drivers what they are: EMPLOYEES, not contractors
– Fed jobs guarantee
– Prep for automation https://t.co/FjfapJV2ni

But as Lifson correctly referenced a Fox News report;
New York Socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez once blamed ride-sharing giant Uber for leading a yellow cab driver to suicide. Her campaign then took $4,000 worth of Uber rides.
