Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has something terrible mapped out for America’s future.
The New York Democrat is scheming to turn the United States into the next Venezuela.
And she has this secret plan to impose socialism on America.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her allies make no bones about it—they are gun-grabbing, pro-open borders socialists.
And they will use any means necessary to bring about their disastrous vision of America.
But their legislative efforts have been bottlenecked because of the Senate filibuster and President Trump’s veto pen.
Instead of recognizing that America has a constitutional system of checks and balances designed to prevent runaway mobs from imposing their will on society, Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow radicals view it as a challenge.
And they have come up with a new scheme to break the back of America’s constitutional Republic.
Ocasio-Cortez and other liberals like to employ what is called “corporate shaming.”
This is done by identifying the corporations that their political opponents depend on for funding—and then pressuring them into choking off their business relationships.
Liberals claim that this isn’t the government taking action to punish private citizens, but without access to banks or payment processors, conservatives have no means to make a living or support their causes.
Ocasio-Cortez explained this strategy in an interview with Politico, saying, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat, and not everything has to be done through legislation explicitly. We can also use the tools that we have here to pressure change in other ways as well.”
She explained it further on social media and tweeted her intentions to pressure banks into refusing to do business with fossil fuel companies in order to combat so-called “climate change,” end the availability of guns in America, and impose open borders.
“Banks are acutely sensitive about their reputations because they are in a business acutely susceptible… if consumers vote with their wallets. Economic activism (ex: the fossil fuel divestment movement we saw at Standing Rock, and pressuring business re: assault rifles) works.”
“JP Morgan agreed to pay out *$13 billion* over its massive role in mortgage schemes w the ‘08 recession. They also finance major fossil fuel pipelines. It’s big money So maybe they *aren’t* the best authority on prioritizing economic wellbeing of everyday people & the planet.”
Ocasio-Cortez plans to lead a movement of leftists who will threaten to “boycott” banks that provide funding for gun manufacturers and private prisons that detain illegal aliens.
Democrats know they could never pass laws making gun ownership illegal or eliminating immigration enforcement.
So they are choosing a sneakier route.
They are targeting the financial institutions that make gun ownership and immigration enforcement possible.
Guns aren’t banned in America.
The left will just make it impossible to own one by shutting down access to financing that allows gun manufacturers to remain open.
Congress never passed a law eliminating immigration enforcement.
But ICE and Customs and Border Patrol won’t be able to enforce the law because companies that would’ve otherwise provided detention facilities will be shut out of access to funding for their projects.
To the left, the best part is there is nothing conservatives can do about.
Liberals know corporations value their “brand” and panic at the first sign of a social media outrage campaign.
That is the pressure point in the system.
Corporations can turn off access to financing for conservatives or industries that fund their priorities with no legal or economic recourse.
There is no law mandating a bank must do business with individuals because of their political beliefs.
And no one has established a new bank to compete with the massive financial institutions that exist today.
And unfortunately, there are signs that Ocasio-Cortez’s plan to use corporate power to decimate her political opponents is working.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted out that multiple banks have already caved to her demand to stop providing funding for private prisons.
“Huge update: JP Morgan & Wells Fargo have announced that they will no longer fund private prisons. How did this happen? Through organizing people & public pressure! Everyday folks began paying attention to who was funding for-profit prisons & family separation,+ acted on it.”
