Even as an advocate of controlled anarchy, I’ve generally (and surprisingly) enjoyed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (NY-14) rhetoric and fundamentals: Fight the system, tip the scales, and give power to the people.
All are well-within the core beliefs of The Gadsden Press.
Yet, even as AOC hurrahed and rallied behind the assault of Wall Street by /wallstreetbets, with an opportunity to clear the way for bipartisan strength, AOC clearly reminded us: She is the face of the revolution, not anyone else.
And that was when the potential to spark a revolution died.
Much like the featured image of this post, in America, and throughout the world, the voice of one will continue to drown out the cries of the many.
I’ll give no context on the fight against The Suits. If you’re unaware of the happenings in the stock market and Wall Street, QUIT LIVING UNDER A ROCK.
What I will give context on is the Twitter exchange between AOC and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). Quote tweeting AOC’s tweet, Cruz agreed with the New York Rep, surprising the masses as the two are known rivals. A true moment, opportunity, and initiation of hope for the people to join together to FIGHT THE SYSTEM! But, as we have continually learned in the US, we will never be free.
Out of the Bag
AOC finally proved once-and-for-all she is nothing more than a power-hungry, New York thief determined to make us live in her utopia. Also quote tweeting, the far-Left Congressperson stated,
I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out. Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed. In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign. -@AOC
Absolutely ASTONISHING reply. I had to read it twice because I thought it was from a satire account of some kind. An un-holy statement based on nothing in a moment of true potential burned to the ground instantly by an INSANE New York Communist. My personal hope was gone as I read the tweet over and over again, stunned by the shear absurdity. I have strong opinions but I’ve ALWAYS been willing to come together to raise the flag to fight. What AOC showed us with her reply to Senator Cruz is exactly what I said earlier: Proof of her self-obsession. AOC should’ve just told us what she wanted to: I know better than you.
Never an End to our Fight
My own destruction of hope shouldn’t kill yours. Just remember that for one brief period the people ruled and someone wanted to listen. Someday we will find our way back. For now AOC and Cruz will exchange un-pleasantries and attempt to divide us further. As the Suits and the government keep raining down on us, we must keep fighting. Not because we can: Because we have to. I’ll never claim to know all of the answers, but I sure as hell know that whatever we’re living in now isn’t going to get it done.
Until the power of the many overthrow the power of one, May the Gadsden Fly Forever.
