Greenwald jumps on ‘servants’ pampering AOC; drops hammer on ‘two-tiered mask system’ in US

Video footage from Vogue perfectly captured the truth behind the phenomenon of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez far better than they may have realized.

But it gets even better, as independent journalist Glenn Greenwald was quick to call attention to “two distinct classes of people” when it comes to who was wearing masks in the video and who wasn’t.

When the former bartender from the Bronx exploded on the national scene in 2018, upsetting the then fourth-ranked Democrat in Congress in a primary challenge, few looked past her pretty face and youthful figure to question how a political newcomer pulled off what The New York Times called “a shocking primary defeat… the most significant loss for a Democratic incumbent in more than a decade, and one that will reverberate across the party and the country.”

And while AOC will cry sexism with the drop of a hat for such a characterization, she’s not above using her feminine assets to sell her hard-left agenda as was seen last week at the Met Gala when she rocked the “Tax the Rich” dress. And just as we would learn that there was a network behind Ocasio-Cortez’s political rise — Justice Democrats — her appearance at the $35,000-a-head shindig was far from a solo effort.

As seen in the Vogue video, there is a virtual army of attendants on hand to dress the elitist Democrat who touts her efforts to fight for the working class, from hairstylists to make-up artists. They are even buckling Ocasio-Cortez’s shoes for her. But what stood out here was that the attendants — servants — were all wearing masks while our self-avowed socialist heroine was not.

“In new video from Vogue, AOC and her boyfriend passed through a large team of masked servants — all while they remain mask-free indoors — as they prepared to attend a ball like the Prince and Princess of Wales,” Greenwald tweeted. “Liberal discourse on COVID has zero relationship to science.”

AOC’s metrosexual boyfriend, Riley Roberts, can be seen in the background rocking a tuxedo without a mask.

While questions still remain over how the Democratic lawmaker manages to acquire a $35,000 ticket — she claims she was invited, but there are reports that dispute that –who was paying for all these attendants fawning over Ocasio-Cortez and why?

But the greater issue centers around the “two-tiered mask system” that seems to be in place, which Greenwald followed up on.

“Someone please explain to me the scientific rationale for requiring servants indoors to have cloth covering their face, while the celebrities they serve are mask-free? And what’s the socialist praxis for this two-tiered mask system of servants and the served indoors?” he asked.

Last week, after the Met Gala, Greenwald wrote about the topic on Substack.

“While AOC’s revolutionary and subversive socialist gown generated buzz, the normalization of maskless elites attended to by faceless servants is grotesque,” he penned.

“When it comes to mask mandates, it is now commonplace to see two distinct classes of people: those who remain maskless as they are served, and those they employ as their servants who must have their faces covered at all times,” Greenwald wrote. “Prior to the COVID pandemic, it was difficult to imagine how the enormous chasm between the lives of cultural and political elites and everyone else could be made any larger, yet the pandemic generated a new form of crude cultural segregation: a series of protocols which ensure that maskless elites need not ever cast eyes upon the faces of their servant class.”
