NYC Socialism Just Backfired on Them

Amazon is the largest online retailer of just about everything you could ever think of, offering competitive pricing on thousands upon thousands of items.  Amazon was planning on building a super-size distribution center in New York City but some of the locals decided to protest and Amazon has now canceled its plans and will build it's a warehouse somewhere else.

The Amazon warehouse would have added some much needed 25K jobs that would have paid good wages but NO, the leftist mob would not have it.  This is the epitome of selfishness and arrogance this protesting and shutting down plans for his warehouse that would have brought good jobs to NYC.

Congress-woman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is applauding Amazons decision stating "Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world."

Ocasio-Cortez sees this as a win against corporate greed and against the wealthy. She could care less about the people she is supposed to be representing.  People are losing money that they invested in building condos and apartments to house Amazon workers and their families. Ocasio-Cortez could care less about that. I'm thinking the greed is on the Ocasio's foot, not Amazons.

the Governor of New York Andrew (Frodo) Cuomo and the Mayor of New York City Bill De Blasio has ripped into her "“As a progressive my entire life — and I ain’t changing — I’ll take on any progressive anywhere that thinks it’s a good idea to lose jobs and revenue because I think that’s out of touch with what working people want,”

Even the Socialist Mayor of New York City does not agree with Ocasio-Cortez's radicalism and the damage she just did to the working people of NYC.  I expect even more backlash against her over the next few days but I don't think this stone cold bitch even cares one iota about those she has hurt by sending her band of radicals to destroy Amazon's plans. Keep in mind they are all anti-capitalists down deep inside, but some are more radical than others, but they are all socialists to some degree.

In my honest opinion, I think that Ocasio-Cortez is in for a rude awakening and I think her radical socialist views will end up costing her in the long run.  I don't think that the old guard Democrats really go for her radical views but there is always a chance that she will convert them all to her viewpoint which of course is her goal.

By the way, Amazon is building one of these distribution centers not far from me and we welcome them here because they will create many good paying jobs for many people in the area.  Companies like Amazon are in business to make a profit and the people at the head of these companies make a lot of money, but they are the ones creating jobs that allow other people to make a living.

We need to squash this anti-capitalist radical leftism before it gets any larger, our future depends on it.
