I’ve written about how our friends on the left represent the rich, and pointed out how big parts of their agenda are designed to help people with above-average incomes.

Today, let’s have some fun with that issue.

Bernie Sanders has three houses, yet complains about the supposed excesses of capitalism. I wonder if he applies that analysis to his Mini-Me, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

But that $3,500-plus ensemble is chump change compared to what she wore for Vanity Fair‘s obsequious cover story.

Next, we have the irony of “AOC” augmenting her financial status by selling $58 “tax the rich” t-shirts.

By the way, just in case you think I’m making this up, here’s AOC’s tweet.

In other words, we have one rich person selling over-priced products to other rich people so they can virtue-signal about how awful it is that some people are rich.

The Babylon Bee has some satire on other products AOC could sell.

In an Instagram live video recorded in her posh D.C. apartment, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced today she is now selling Tax the Rich Caviar for just $10,000 a can. “Show everyone how bad the rich people are with this delicious caviar,” the website reads. “All our Tax the Rich caviar is responsibly sourced, with all proceeds going to help Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tax the rich.” …Many people are criticizing the products as tone-deaf and out of touch, but Ocasio-Cortez says she is making a list of these people for some future purpose.

Let’s close with Crazy Bernie, joined by fellow millionaires (and fellow hypocrites) Elizabeth Warren and Michael Moore.

I don’t know if they were actually discussing inequality when that photo was snapped, but all three of them definitely enjoy the blessings of capitalism while pushing policies that would prevent other people from becoming similarly wealthy


P.S. Let’s not forget about other left-wing millionaires, such as Joe Biden, John Kerry, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and the Governor of Illinois, all of whom want to atone for their wealth by raising taxes on the rest of us.
