Today is the day to make genuine social change and get rid of a perpetually useless, avaricious and selfish elected hack in Congressman Joe Crowley. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Bronx born and bred 28-year-old woman and former teacher and waitress is outstandingly more qualified to represent the citizens of Queens and the Bronx.
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is super informative not only on local politics and issues but also on international issues as well. Her platform is solid and will truly help this district’s working poor and middle class constituency and could possibly influence progressive legislation in the nation as well. This woman knows income disparity is getting worse and is making it impossible for people to save and advance in life. Most of all, she knows the toxic influence of money from giant corporations and dynastic wealth into politics is the priority substantial threat to democracy.
The latter summarizes the last two decades of existence in Congress of “Virginia” Joe Crowley. His nickname long known in Queens being that he doesn’t live in the borough he was elected and purports to represent. But because of excessive donor cash and nepotism, which could be why the Republican party has never put up a viable candidate to beat him. Or didn’t even bother for that rea$on alone.
So since the right doesn’t want to bother and he is a reliable bipartisan ally when it comes to whoring for one percenter donor cash, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is attacking from the left where Joe has at the last minute embraced because of her public profile reached nationally because of a dynamic campaign ad.
After refusing to acknowledge her for a year and in the winding weeks of spring, Mr. Crowley accepted her request for a debate on television and predictably got fed his overdue lunch.
While he stammered, stuttered, pathetically pandered to his multicultural constituency and at one point accused her of supporting the owning of military grade assault weapons and bumpstocks, she dominated the majority and took advantage of the brief time of the debate (about 19 minutes!) by sticking to the relevant issues and offering legitimate solutions and got in his face about the fallacy he touts about Democrat party solidarity in fighting President Trump’s twitter based policies and ideological stands shaping government and our perception from (former) allies and embracing facism, the established influence of Wall Street and Stadium Banks ghostwriting legislation to further benefit itselves and not doing enough to challenge the gun lobby and the private equity firms that bolster the selling of the weapons he brought up to undermine her.
He has proven to be a heinous bastard and inveterate sellout. No one is more deserving of utter humiliation and destruction, the same he is meting via his fraudulent pose and pathetic pandering as a progressive and his cozy political career as an elected official. He has proven this along with his desperation to hold on to his undeserved position with vile race-baiting by claiming that he couldn’t help being born white.
Beyond all that, Crowley’s money whoring both proves that he will not do a damn thing stopping Trump’s insane and expensive policies, which he hasn’t done already, but is just like him with his duplicitous behavior, brazen lying and of course being a silver spooned fed manchild whose career is derived from good fortune nepotism.
All you have to do is look around, not only in district 14 but throughout the five boroughs and you can see the consequences of Mr. Crowley’s obeisance to his donors and obscene cronyism. Look at all the towers being built which has resulted in the rising of rents, which takes half of your paycheck away to survive having a roof over your head, look out it’s draining services and the toll it’s having on the streets and transit. Look at the thousands of homeless people forced to live in hotels after being disenfranchised from their homes and on the streets thanks to Joe’s complicity with and his major role of government’s part of the Gentrification Industrial Complex. Look at all the heroin junkies in the street and reading about those dying every day from the effects of the real gateway drug, prescriptive painkillers, another industry “Virginia Joe” unquestionably takes money from to influence his legislative duty.
Well, folks are going to have their opinions on Trump, but this is about this opportunistic irrelevant asshole Crowley here, who is exploiting that bastard’s brazen and blatant incompetence and fascism (incompetent fascism?) so he can get re-elected and continue to enrich himself and his lawyer friends and real estate, stadium bank and private equity donors (just like his elected hack peers in the McResistance)
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knows that the we, the people make and run this nation and it isn’t going to run efficiently or smoothly when they can’t make the rent or when they are devoid of health care. And it definitely won’t run at all with a shitty version of democracy being dictated by oligarchs and plutocrats being machinated by useful idiots like Joe Crowley.
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez and her presence in Congress will give a sliver of hope for true reform in DC and this city, which certainly has the gentrification industrial complex shitting in their skivvies being that the Bronx is now targeted for hyperdevelopment and market rate rental fabrication/speculation. If not then this bald asshole will make certain there is absolutely no progress for the working poor, middle class and even scared immigrants in the process to get citizenship in this city and nation and more perks and profits for his dumb ass self.
To paraphrase a bit from Alexandria’s ad, even though she makes it starkly plain at the end, Congressman Joe Crowley only serves and listens to money. He didn’t serve and didn’t listen to the people.
Vote for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Let’s get this jerk out of Congress and destroy the corporate stranglehold and the pernicious influence of the Queens and Democrat Machines.
