Socialist Ocasio-Cortez lashes out at media for revealing where she lives – in a luxury high rise

According to the New York Post, Democratic Socialist party member and US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “scolded media outlets for reporting that she lives in a luxury high-rise building in Washington, DC, around the time she and other high-profile Democrats appeared on a hit list compiled by a Maryland man arrested for allegedly planning a mass terror attack.”

“It’s reckless, irresponsible & puts people directly in danger. This isn’t a game,” she tweeted.

Ocasio-Cortez earns $174,000 per year as a congressperson.

She lives “…in a tony section of the capital in a building where rents range from $2,000 for a studio apartment to more than $5,000 for a three-bedroom,” according to the Post.

Recent articles pointed out that “Ocasio-Cortez’s platform [is] as a champion of the poor and took her to task for living in an upscale building that they claimed didn’t offer affordable housing.”

Ocasio-Cortez made housing affordability one of her top policy concerns.

Ocasio-Cortez also has a second residence in the Bronx, a condo purchased by her late father in 1986. She has lived there since 2011.  The mortgage was paid off by her father in 2007, according to public records. She resides there without any monthly payments other than homeowner association fees and property taxes, according to a report in the Washington Free Beacon.

Ocasio-Cortez seems to have lied about her living situation during her campaign.

She “…focused on being relatable to the ‘working-class struggles’ of fellow New Yorkers, with reports falsely indicating that the family had to ‘fight off foreclosure’ on the Bronx apartment,” according to the Beacon.

CNBC wrote, “In 2008, Ocasio-Cortez’s father passed away from cancer when he was just 48. In order to help fight off foreclosure on her family’s apartment in the Bronx, Ocasio-Cortez took on several jobs in restaurants—often working 18-hour shifts.”

The mortgage was paid off before her father died.

There is more:

The Daily Mail revealed that her father purchased a second residence—a three-bedroom home in pricey Westchester, about 30 miles north of New York City.  She moved there as a young child and, thus, her Bronx condo was not her family home.

Ocasio-Cortez made it seem, in an interview with The Intercept, that the Westchester home her mother lived in was in New York City.

“With my family, we sold my childhood home,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “My mother was forced to move to Florida because she could no longer afford to live in New York City, remain in New York City.”

Ocasio-Cortez seemed to go out of her way to describe an affluent or at least middle-class lifestyle as a struggle up from poverty.

Ocasio-Cortez’s new luxury apartment in DC was named by Politico as “one of the coolest neighborhoods in the world.”

In defending her choice of a luxury condo, a spokesman of Ocasio Cortez told the Washington Free Beacon that her office also uses a car with an “internal combustion engine that runs on fossil fuels,” even though she thinks their use should be eliminated.

  • Another FAKE. Grew up in Westchester. Family owns property in the Bronx. Now she lives in a Fancy Condo in DC in a Fancy area.

    Sheesh! We were tricked again…working class, struggling to make ends meet. Sure.

  • What are you complaining about? The fact that members of the house earn 174k and that she spends it? That is pretty weak, Frank. Remember how much money you charged NXIVM per month

    • Frank didn’t “charge” NXIVM anything, that’s how much they paid him. As far as I know, Frank was not against Amazon moving into AOC’s neighborhood, she was.

  • “My mother was forced to move to Florida because she could no longer afford to live in New York City, remain in New York City.”

    Many people can’t afford to live in New York City or New York State.

    The high taxes imposed by Ocasio-Cortez’s friends in the New York Democratic party have forced the middle class to flee New York.

    Ocasio-Cortez also suggested shopping at thrift stores, walking, biking, using public transit and lugging around a grocery bag and coffee mug.

    God Save America if this Marxist is ever elected President.

    • Marxism, socialism are the labels on the lips of people who only judge the surface of things, perhaps pretending to be something that you are not in reality, disliking others as behavior but doing what you want is a matter of socialists or rather of politicians and people in general who like to sell a false image of themselves to obtain the approval and support of other people who in fact only see you superficially according to their own idealistic desires of a leader to leave the responsibility of taking decisions that take away from them responsibility. True socialism and even more true utopian communism supposes a greater responsibility of each citizen both in their behavior towards society and the community and in their obligation to prepare themselves to give their best contribution to them.

  • Ocasio-Cortez is just like her hero Karl Marx. Karl Marx cried poverty and avowed himself a champion of the working classes…..

    The truth is that Marx lived a nice and comfortable life thanks to Frederic Engels support. Frederic Engels was the son of wealthy parents and patron of Karl Marx.

    Ocasio-Cortez is just like all of her social activist predecessors….

    A hypocrite.

    • Socialism often results in the elite living pampered, comfortable, privileged lives, while the minions are herded into small apartments and forced to take mass transit to their work-a-doo jobs, with a huge chunk of their salary grabbed for taxes. That is, unless you’re a helpless or lazy ne’er do well, who lives on government programs. The super rich don’t wait for paychecks and derive their income from investments and interest.

      Bernie Sanders is another example of one living the high life while preaching wealth redistribution. I’m waiting for him to redistribute two of his three luxury residences..

      These folks fully realize that if we merely taxed consumption (and not income), the wealthy would automatically “pay more,” and the government would have more money that it has now. Smarter people than I have already done the math. Taxation of income is a method of suppression and control.

  • Aw the bimbo gift that keeps on giving. The dopey pied piper of our resident left wing nuts that think we only have 12 years before the bogey man climate change destroys us.

    Media Hysteria: Climate Change ‘Heat Records’ Are a Huge Data Manipulation

    The idea that climate change is producing heat records across the Earth is among the most egregious manipulations of data in the absurd global warming debate.

    Americans receive a daily barrage from the fake news media and climate “experts” reporting that each and every day, week, month or year is the hottest on record due to global warming. On Feb. 7, several major newspapers carried stories of the declaration by NASA and NOAA that the past five years have been the warmest on record.

    Sadly, these supposed experts use mathematical equations that do not jibe with reality over the past 140 years.

    The same climate experts warn that record heat is just the tip of the iceberg. We are constantly told that global warming is the root cause behind any and all weather events that are extreme, destructive, unusual or uncomfortable.

    Many of these fear mongers also say we should stop burning fossil fuels that are causing this mayhem

  • It will be interesting to see how her evil leftist Senate counterpart worms her way out of the smollett case. Kamala Harris had lunch with racist and hate crime hoaxer Al Sharpton in Harlem at Sylvias.. My prediction is that Harris will be found to be connected to the Smollett hate crime. This cake is baking

  • Unlike Capitalsim, Socialism is incompatible with the normal human attachment to selfishness, it’s all over this website comment section.

  • Ocasio-Cortez is not expounding Socialist doctrine she is actually expounding Communist doctrine.

    There is a big difference between her and Elizabeth Warren.

  • Aw getting your panties in a knot over your little leftist bimbo. Don’t worry even though you are much older, you are every bit as shallow as she is.

  • “Some pigs are more equal than others”. – I may be wrong, but I believe it was the character Pygmalion in the book Animal Farm by George Orwell.

  • AOC has signed on to United Nations Agenda 21, the blueprint for a one world government run by elitists such as herself in order to control every aspect of our lives. No more burgers, cars, private homes, etc., but you get to have solar panels with snow on top of them and wind turbines slicing and dicing birds as you retreat to your pack and stack them 400sq ft living space. After all the masses need to conserve while the elites like Al Gore live in large mansions and fly all over in private jets lecturing us on our carbon footprint. By the way we are made of 18% carbon, is that why these evil crazed folks are so into baby murder?
