As Sean Spicer put it “Using capitalism to push socialism”.
The campaign of socialist AOC is now hawking merchandise and Reuters is basically giving her free advertising by tweeting about the “news” nine times yesterday.
As you see above, they tweeted over and over again about the “big news” writing “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is investing heavily in her online store, selling merchandise with her name, initials and slogans as a fundraising effort and profile-building exercise." The other tweets they sent out, “AOC is now selling merchandise. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become one of America's most prominent progressive Democrats with her calls to tax the wealthy and spend heavily to fight climate change."; "’Tax the Rich’ ‘Fight for our Future' Now she is investing heavily in her online store, selling merchandise with her name, initials and slogans as a fundraising effort and profile-building exercise”; "AOC breaks into the merchandise market.”
Hilariously, AOC tried to fire back at Sean Spicer saying that her selling merch is not capitalism. She wrote, “Not sure if you know this Sean, but transactions aren’t capitalism. Capitalism is a system that prioritizes profit at any & all human/enviro cost. But fwiw our shop is unionized, doesn’t operate for profit,& funds projects like free tutoring, food programs,& local organizing.”
Sista girl, that’s capitalism and you are profiting off of it.
Funny how socialist turn into capitalists when they realize they can profit off it.
