‘Is AOC Crazy?’: Ocasio-Cortez’s Constituents Blast Her For Sharing Video Calling Inflation ‘Propaganda’

“Has she been to a grocery store recently?”
BOSTON, MA - OCTOBER 01: New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez speaks at a rally calling on Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) to reject Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court on October 1, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts. Sen. Flake is scheduled to give a talk at the Forbes 30 under 30 event in Boston after recently calling for a one week pause in the confirmation process to give the FBI more time to investigate sexual assault allegations.

Residents in the New York area represented by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted her for sharing a video last month that said propaganda was being fed to the American public about inflation.

The video, from left-wing New Zealand group Aotearoa Liberation League, blamed “greedy shareholders” for creating “propaganda” about inflation.

“The price of everything keeps going up; meanwhile, the corporations selling those things are making massive profits,” the video stated. “The goal of the capitalist is to disconnect these two facts from one another. So they use this concept of inflation.”

“The propaganda around inflation and cost of living is so powerful that we forget the very basic fact that corporations set the prices for their products,” the video continued. “If a corporation raises its prices and then makes record profits, that’s not some invisible monster. It’s just a bunch of greedy shareholders.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s constituents in the 14th district expressed their anger to The New York Post that Ocasio-Cortez had blithely dismissed talk of inflation as “propaganda.”

A 41-year-old certified nursing assistant and single mother of three told the Post, “Is AOC crazy? Has she been to a grocery store recently? $1,000 ain’t nothing no more. $100 ain’t nothing no more. Maybe she should spend some time in the projects and really help people.”

“I’m working two jobs just to survive,” she continued. “I kill myself just to feed my family. It’s much worse now than it was before the pandemic.”

A Hispanic retired schoolteacher from the Bronx snapped that AOC “does not represent true Hispanic beliefs or values,. Puerto Ricans have traditional family values which she does not represent. And for her to act as if inflation being something other than the government’s fault? Well since I don’t have someone to pay for my $30,000 dress for a gala like she did, it’s much easier for me to see the truth.”

“AOC should not be in Congress,” she concluded. “She’s not helping us, she’s hurting us with her rhetoric and her policies.”

A 55-year-old man said, “I had to cash in my 401K. The last few years have been very rough. You go in a store with $100 and it buys almost nothing. I don’t understand why (AOC) isn’t taking this more seriously.”
