Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is playing the victim card again after being blasted in New York billboards for protesting Amazon’s plans to bring 25,000 jobs to the blue-collar borough of Queens.
Here’s how her spat with a billboard has gone down so far:
Last week, Amazon scrapped plans to build a second headquarters in NYC after leftist activists — led by Ocasio-Cortez — chased the retail giant away.
AOC drew heavy bipartisan criticism for her misguided protest. Even New York’s far-left mayor, Bill de Blasio, torched Ocasio-Cortez for her foolish tantrums that drove away high-paying jobs.
Job-Advocacy Group Led by Hispanic Rips AOC
The Job Creators Network — a conservative advocacy group led by CEO Alfredo Ortiz — responded by putting up a billboard slamming AOC for her destructive leftist activism.
Ocasio-Cortez reacted by dissing the billboards, saying whoever posted them wasted “tons of cash on wack billboards.”
This time, AOC could not play the race card because the Job Creators Network is led by a fellow Latino.
Few things effectively communicate the power we’ve built in fighting dark money & anti-worker policies like billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards (this one is funded by the Mercers).
(PS fact that it’s in Times Sq tells you this isn’t for/by NYers.) https://t.co/B4QTPi1r2k

‘This Billboard Costs $4,000’
The Job Creators Network clapped back by putting up two new billboards that snarked: “Hey AOC, Saw your wack tweet.”
A second billboard quipped: “This billboard costs about $4,000. But you cost NY 25,000 jobs and $4 billion in annual lost wages. Ouch!”
The billboards are located in Times Square, at the corner of 42nd Street and 7th Avenue.
‘Socialism Takes and Capitalism Creates’
Alfredo Ortiz, who has been the CEO of the Job Creators Network since 2014, slammed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Democrat Party for championing socialism, a failed ideology that has caused the once-thriving Venezuelan economy to tank into poverty.
Ortiz says he hopes the clueless Ocasio-Cortez gets the message he’s sending.
“Socialism takes and capitalism creates,” Ortiz said. “Socialism took from New Yorkers 25,000 new jobs and $4 billion in lost annual wages…We need to teach people [economic literacy].”

Former Bartender Has Persecution Complex
As BizPac Review has reported, Ocasio-Cortez is extremely thin-skinned whenever people criticize her. This is something that liberals constantly say about President Trump. But in reality, former bartender AOC is probably the biggest whiner in politics today.
In January, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted to her critics: “Don’t hate me cause you ain’t me.”
She made the remark in response to criticism that she flip-flopped on her promise to vote against Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House of Representatives. But when the vote came up, Alexandria dutifully toed the party line and backed Pelosi.
You’re such a rebel, AOC! A rebel without a clue.
