Ocasio-Cortez Urges a “General Strike” in Call With Democratic Socialists

In a video conference with the Democratic Socialists of America, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said it was up to the group to educate American workers about how they can organize a “general strike,” walk out of their jobs, and transform society.

“You know, there’s a lot of people saying, ‘call for a general strike, call for a general strike,'” AOC said. “The majority of Americans don’t know what a general strike is and so our responsibility is to talk about it, expand consciousness about it, and to actually create the conditions in which working people can generate and really exercise their own power, the power that they already have.”

The freshman congresswoman also took to Twitter in a criticism of the soaring stock market, saying it had no relation to the experience of workers on the ground.

“Hint: it starts with a C and ends with -apitalism,” she tweeted. “This is what happens when Wall Street captures Congress and writes themselves bailout check after bailout check as working people die.”

Ocasio-Cortez has been predictably critical of the U.S. response to the coronavirus, previously telling Vice News that workers should simply stay home instead of going back to work for insufficient wages.

“When we talk about this idea of reopening society, you know, only in America does the president — when the president tweets about liberation — does he mean go back to work. When we have this discussion about going back or reopening, I think a lot people should just say ‘no’ — we’re not going back to that,” she said. “We’re not going back to working 70-hour weeks just so that we could put food on the table and not even feel any sort of semblance of security in our lives.”

Well, Ocasio-Cortez is just one of many Democrats who want to use the “opportunity” of the coronavirus to dramatically alter the structure of the American free market. Some Democrats are a bit less radical in their efforts, but there’s nary a one of them in Washington who don’t want to drastically expand the social safety net, roll open Medicare to the majority of Americans, and spend, spend, spend our way out of the recession and into a Brave New World of Enormous Government.

If it’s up to them, this country will never “go back to normal”; we will instead transition into a European-style economy complete with greater federal control, punishing regulations, and sky-high taxes. With their ultimate goals hidden in plain sight, is it any wonder some suspect the Democratic Party of treasuring every minute of this crisis?

What do you think?

  1. Americans want to work Ocasio – not strike!! You just want the nation to go down the tubes and fail and it is quite obvious what you are doing!

    • First off, AOCocksucker gives really good head. She’ll blow your weeny for just $2.55, much cheaper than Kamala. Just contact aocsucksem.com to set up an appointment.

      Secondly, AOCocksucker is a dumbass bitch with shit for brains. She is a stupid little cunt who needs to study economics, something she never paid attention to in school.

      Thirdly, if you go to college and get at least a four year degree, then you will get a good job in our economy. You won’t be working a low-life job with shit for wages. You get rewarded for doing something smart in your life. But if you just fuck around and get drunk every weekend and don’t attend college or a trade school, then most likely you will end up with a minimum wage job. That’s just tough shit. Why would companies hire dumb people with no education when they can hire smart people with higher educations.

  2. It will be so nice when this village idiot – first class jack ass is voted OUT of office later this fall – In my opinion she should never have been elected and seated in congress.

    • There’s the problem, Scott… We Patriots are being out voted by the uneducated, illegals, corrupt voting, freeloaders, sick, lame & lazy. Until we enforce strict voter laws the election of subversives and idiots will continue. Make Election Day a Paid National Holliday. That’s the only day authorized for voting; no early voting and no mail in voting with the exception of our military stationed overseas. We can schedule other things of less consequence and importance, so I’m sure we can schedule a day to IN-PERSON VOTE WITH AN APPROVED PICTURE ID. This is the only way we will fix our election voting process and contain cheating.

      • Rodney, I am with you 100% on the voter ID AND no more mail in votes. As well as Australian ballot…this is the USA!
        The Dems don’t want to have voter ID so they can continue to cheat!

  3. Who in God’s name would listen to the national disgrace known as Cortes. She plateaued out as a bartender and now has an IQ in the 50 range. How many jobs has she killed for New York? She has no clue what it is for people to work for a living. She is all about shock value and she lives in an alternate universe. She will be a great addition to Biden’s team.

  4. Ms Cortez wishes to live in a Communist country.. I suggest we start a go fund me account and sent her to the one of her choice.

  5. She said workers don’t want to work 70 hour work weeks hell how does she know she is lucky she puts in 20 hours in her office working for the American people and she get a great salary, benefits, most who work those overtime hours want to get ahead in life you stupid arrogant “B”

  6. “You know, there’s a lot of people saying, ‘call for a general strike, call for a general strike,’” AOC said. All democrats including the HOUSE that refuse to return to work!
    Well, that is OK, hand them their pink slip aka FIRED, stop their pay, stop their retirement, remove their passports, and freeze their assist, arrest them for HIGH TREASON AGAINST AMERICA.

  7. What we need is a general strike when it comes to the news reporting on the crap from Ms. Ocasio-Cortez.

  8. There are already millions out of work and you want more people to leave their jobs in a general strike? You are such a dumbass!

  9. This bitch is going to cause revolts within our country. Most people I know are anxious and ready to go back to work.

  10. Yaor. the pigs behind the controls .. they’re censuring any of what th liberal-progressives don’t want to hear .. know.hoo ..

  11. If you haven’t got a pair of synopses available to you, you might want to consider keeping your mouth shut. It’s a clever as hell idea to call for a general strike when everybody is sitting at home on their asses because no businesses are operational. The likely result of a general strike under those circumstances would be the total breakdown of the country and its government…oh, wait, that’s right her goal is turning the country into a socialist utopia and to do that we would have to destroy beyond repair the existing economy. But, then it would take those two synopses for her to figure out that in the history of the world socialist utopias have never worked to meet the needs of the citizens and it won’t work now, either.

  12. AOC needs to go back to BAR TENDING, hopefully she was better at pouring a drink than working in politics. Why didn’t she just jump from bar tending to brain surgery? In NY, it seems they would have allowed that😄 this idiot AOC, needs to PAY HER 2012 taxes ASAP, then drop out of politics FOREVER, then leave America, she doesn’t belong with civilized people AND SHE HATES AMERICA!!!. Go clean restrooms at truck stops, maybe you can make some “extra” cash!!
