In yet another effort to normalize socialism and communism in the United States, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took to Twitter to claim the word “communist” was popularized as a white supremacist slur against civil rights pioneers in the 1950s.
Quoting a tweet that read, “the argument that it’s okay to be racist against a socialist who is critical of America was pioneered in the 1960s by National Review in their many attacks on Martin Luther King, Jr.”, Ocasio-Cortez made the radical claim that “communist” is a “smear” associated with “white supremacy.”
“Calling people who believe in democracy, civil + economic rights, and racial justice ‘communist’ has a long + rich history w/ white supremacy in the US,” wrote Ocasio-Cortez. She also claimed it was “one of the main attacks segregationists used against MLK Jr”.

In other words, if patriotic Americans are concerned about the growing call for socialism and communism in the United States, they are inextricably tied to white nationalists.
Ocasio-Cortez’s bizarre claim is eerily similar to a Twitter verified activist who recently made the claim that the word “communist” is synonymous with the n-word.
Bree Newsome, a self-described “artist” and activist who climbed a South Carolina flag pole to remove the Confederate flag in 2015 and was somehow verified by Twitter as a result, made the claim that “communist” is somehow a code word for the n-word, and wrote the word in its entirety. The word, typically removed from Twitter, is apparently allowed for the sake of defending communism.
In a series of tweets, Newsome wrote “Since at least the 1950s, “communist” has become a popular coded word for n*****. Let’s be real,” and added that “Anybody Black advocating equal rights is a “communist” [read: no good n*****] who is a threat to the American way of life [read: white man’s country]. They called MLK communist when they weren’t calling him Martin Luther Coon.”
Doubling down despite the majority of responses calling her out on the defamatory and bizarre statement, Newsome lambasted those who dared to question her supreme wokeness.
While Ocasio-Cortez echoes Twitter leftists who are eager to call anyone they disagree with racist, her policies are potentially securing a massive electoral defeat for the Democrat Party.
As Big League Politics reported, top Democrats are worried Ocasio-Cortez and her love of socialism are spelling doom for the Democrat Party, as socialism is still considered “toxic” to the vast majority of white, blue collar, American voters who do not have a college education.
That is to say, it is toxic to the exact demographic Democrats lost in 2016 and 2018, and desperately need to secure to maintain control of the House and have any shot of winning the presidency come 2020.
As the Global Economy Craters, Bill Gates Buys New Oceanfront Mansion for $43 Million
Gates lives the high life while the rest of us suffer.
Technocratic oligarch Bill Gates is living high on the hog while the global economy crashes, picking up another mansion at the height of the coronavirus pandemic to add to his collection.
Gates purchased a $43 million beach home in Del Mar, Calif. with his wife Melinda last week. He bought the palatial estate from Madeleine Pickens, the widow of deceased oil baron T. Boone Pickens, which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms in a lavish 5,800-square-foot home.
Architect Ken Ronchetti designed the home in 1999, and it is supposedly considered “one of the most prominent coastal contemporary beach homes on the West Coast.”
“Wide windows throughout the living spaces open to the back patio, offering a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patio also provides awe-inspiring vistas of the Pacific Ocean,” Realtor.com wrote in their description of the property.
“Rich wood ceilings throughout the home evoke the feeling of being on an island, and the gorgeous pool beckons, should the owners desire to take a break from the salty ocean water,” they added.
Gates newest beach home accompanies his primary compound in Medina, Wash., a garish horse property in Rancho Santa Fee, Calif., and a massive plot of land in Wellington, Fla., which is considered the equestrian capital of the state.
Gates isn’t the only oligarch flaunting his extreme wealth during the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is also piling up many more billions due to human suffering.
Reports have indicated that Bezos has added a stunning $24 billion to his personal wealth throughout the coronavirus pandemic:
While many businesses are suffering during the global coronavirus crisis, Jeff Bezos is flourishing. In the midst of the backlash Amazon is facing due to its alleged treatment of employees, Bezos’ wallet remains obscenely healthy. As of last week, his net worth has reportedly increased by five percent, or better put, by a staggering $23.6 billion.
Over the last months, Amazon has seen a rise in demand as its customer base continues to self-isolate. To cope with the surge of orders, it has already hired thousands of new employees and aims to hire an additional 175,000. It has also pledged to prioritize essential items such as sanitizers and baby formula.
However, the increase in workforce has been met with controversy. Amazon has been repeatedly accused of failing to protect its staff from Covid-19 by not providing enough face masks, not implementing regular temperature checks as promised, and refusing paid sick leave.
Amazon has fired employees who’ve publicly criticized the company for its coronavirus response; the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is currently looking into these claims. Last week, the New York Post reported that an Amazon warehouse employee had passed away from the virus.
“We are calling out because Amazon is putting its revenue above our safety,” Jaylen Camp, an Amazon worker told The Guardian. “We are not essential to them – they just think of us as numbers and quotas. They are not protecting our health.” This failure is leading to huge warehouse strikes after over 130 Amazon warehouses in the US have contracted the virus, leading to more than 30 confirmed cases.
Gates can now enjoy beautiful oceanfront scenery to help inspire his vaccine-pushing schemes worldwide, as he regurgitates Chinese propaganda.
