The Democrat Party is clearly moving in a socialist direction.
And Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the face of the party’s leftward drift.
But AOC found herself in hot water after her latest publicity stunt.
Leftist elites recently displayed their decadence to the entire world at the Met Gala.
Celebrities from the entertainment and political world attended the posh event while average Americans are being stressed-tested by COVID restrictions and bad economic policies.
One of the attendees was Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who ironically wore a $30,000 dress that said “tax the rich.”
But her stunt could bring trouble because an ethics complaint was opened against her.
The American Accountability Foundation, a conservative watchdog group, filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) for accepting free tickets to the Met Gala, where she wore a custom white gown that read, “tax the rich.”
The self-proclaimed socialist drew backlash on social media over her attendance Monday at the lavish ball, where tickets go for at least $30,000 and tables are priced at $275,000.
In their complaint, the AAF argues that the congresswoman violated House rules by accepting an “impermissible gift,” referring to the tickets, and has called on the Office of Congressional Ethics to open an investigation into the matter.
As is always the case in socialist societies, the elites live lavishly while everyone else lives in penury.
In America, socialists like AOC can gain money, power, and influence while advocating for top-down government control.
The Met Gala was a perfect illustration of the chasm between out-of-touch progressives and the average citizen.
Wealthy celebrities virtue-signal freely while the hired help have to wear masks.
It may be inconvenient to say out loud that this pic is illustrative of so many issues with our Covid policies, but that doesn't make it not so. The "trickle down" (h/t @DrJBhattacharya) policies of the last 18 months are writ large with this photo… pic.twitter.com/dGs6YIY8ar

Ocasio-Cortez has 12.7 million Twitter followers, makes $174,000 a year, lives in a posh apartment in D.C., and drives a Tesla.
But “tax the rich” or something.
