AOC Reveals Her True Intentions For Billionaires; 'We Want Your Power And Control'

On Monday during an interview, far-left socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demanded that billionaires be "ethical" and give up their power and give it to people like her.
“If Jeff Bezos wants to be a good person, you turn Amazon into a worker cooperative,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “You know, like, not what do I do with all of this money that I have created with this unjust system and, if, usually you’re a billionaire that means that you control a massive system.”
“It means that you own oil supplies, it means that you control textiles, it means that you have a massive labor force under your control and to be ethical if you’re a billionaire today the thing that you need to do is give up control and power,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “So, I don’t want your money, as much as we want your power.”

This wasn't the only shocking comment made by Ocasio-Cortez during the event. She also hammered business owners, falsely claiming that they are "slave" owners who are lazy as they sit "on a couch."
“Well, you didn’t make those widgets, did you?” Ocasio-Cortez started. “Because you employed thousands of people and paid them less than a living wage to make those widgets for you. You didn’t make those widgets.”
“You sat on a couch while thousands of people were paid modern day slave wages, and in some cases real slave, real modern-day slavery, uh, depending on where you are in terms of food production,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “You made that money off the backs of undocumented people. You made that money off the backs of black and brown people being paid under a living wage.”
“You made that money off the backs of single mothers and all these people who are literally dying because they can’t afford to live and so no one ever makes a billion dollars,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “You take a billion dollars and all of that to say, is that it’s, and I’m not here to villainize and to say that billionaires are inherently morally corrupt – but they are, I mean, I think there is a case, but um, but, it’s not to say that, it’s to say that this system that we live in, life in capitalism, always ends in billionaires. If you don’t do it, someone else will. It’s who decides to make that choice is just kind of up to, you know, circumstance.”
She also later bizarrely claimed that "the Democratic Party is not a left party" and that they are actually a "center-conservative party."
“We don’t have a left party in the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “The Democratic Party is not a left party. The Democratic Party is a center or center-conservative party. We do not advocate, we can’t even get a floor vote on Medicare for All, not even a floor vote that gets voted down, we can’t even get a vote on it. So this is not a party.”
