    AOC wears ‘Tax the Rich’ dress to Met Gala

    AOC wears 'tax the rich' dress at Met Gala 2021 (did she have her period or something???)


    Well, isn’t that rich.
    Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who is the face of the Democratic Socialists of America — showed up to the glitzy Met Gala wearing a political message seemingly aimed at her fellow partygoers.
    Ocasio-Cortez wore a white gown by Brother Vellies with “Tax the Rich” in red letters splashed across her back and accessorized with a matching slogan on her bag to the America-themed ball.
    The 31-year-old rep, who is the darling of the far left, could have found a more receptive audience to her sartorial statement at a workers rally. The Met Gala is an exclusive event, which is a parade of millionaire pop stars, wealthy actors, trust fund society swans and members of the gliteratti.
    Indeed, for the 2021 Met Gala, individual tickets were $35,000 and tables started at $200,000, The Post has learned.
    Still, AOC’s style collaborator Aurora James of Brother Vellies said the gala was the perfect venue for such a sartorial statement.

    “We can never get too comfortable in our seats at the table once they’ve been given,” James, founder and creative director of Brother Vellies told Vogue.
    “We must always continue to push ourselves, push our colleagues, push the culture and push the country forward. Fashion is changing, America is changing. And as far as this theme goes, I think Alexandria and I are a great embodiment of the language fashion needs to consider adding to the general lexicon as we work towards a more sustainable, inclusive, and empowered future.”
    ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL. THEN GOD CREATED DESTROYER SAILORS.

    Good! This is exactly the kind of thing guys like us would say about Limousine Liberals: they' should be getting preached to in their expensive zip codes.

    I give her credit for showing them the future of the DNC thanks to their donation money.
    Alas, they were Democrats, so they cheated.

                The phrase "tax the rich" suggests that "the rich" are not currently being taxed.

                We have a progressive tax system: if "the rich" were being taxed at their proportionate share, they would pay LESS in taxes. And they are being taxed in other ways, on top of their disproportionate share of taxes. So these leftist rallying calls (tax the rich, make them pay their fair share) are not serious. What's REALLY going on?

                I think it's on a more basic level: the leftist operating system is being revealed.

                Leftists see that different groups (or individuals) achieve different results. Can't have that, the prime directive says "ALL ARE THE SAME. IF ANYONE IS OUT OF LINE, ENFORCE SAMENESS". Something like that.

                In the picture below (from my kitchen), there is a rich man and a poor man. A leftist sees that, and suddenly gets the urge to pour the rice from one jar to another, until the amounts are about the same. I think that's all there is to leftism, it's on that level, it's that stupid. Then they come up with complicated theories to make it sound sophisticated, like "climate justice".


                If you view this whole 'pandemic' situation through the lens of health, safety, science and saving lives, then most of it makes little sense.If you view it through the lens of money, power, control, and wealth transfer, then all of it makes perfect sense. — Zuby

                    She seems to have a rocking body. I unfortunately can’t get past the teeth… or the stupid.

                          Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is getting into the celebrity gifting game — she got free jewelry to wear at the Met Gala with her “Tax The Rich” dress.

                          Self-proclaimed ‘socialist’ AOC wore multiple pieces from fine jewelry brand Mejuri on Monday night, including 14 karat solid gold hoop earrings valued at $450.

                          While her earrings are certainly less expensive than many of the other jewels loaned out to Met Gala celebs — such as Hailey Bieber’s Tiffany & Co. Blue Book diamond necklace — they are still worth more than the $300 weekly federal unemployment benefit that expired on Sept. 6.

                          A press release was sent out by Mejuri on Monday night, which read, “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wore multiple pieces from the leading fine jewelry brand Mejuri to the 2021 Met Gala: In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion. Alexandria wears the Large Tube Hoops and Dome Ring.

                          AOC showed up at the bash with Aurora James, the founder of fashion line Brother Vellies, who masterminded her dress that declared, in red letters, “Tax the Rich,” which was ironic considering that tickets to the event cost $35,000 each.

                          She said she wanted to “enjoy” herself while also making a statement.

                          When reached by The Post, a rep for jewelry firm Mejuri confirmed to The Post that AOC’s baubles were “samples,” items that are given to celebs and influencers to wear to promote a brand.

                          The Mejuri rep said, “The samples were sent to Aurora James, Founder of Brother Vellies who Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attended with.”

                          Ocasio-Cortez claimed on social media that it was her “responsibility” to attend the Met Gala — as she was blasted for wearing the couture “Tax the Rich” dress to the elite bash.

                          She justified wearing her dress by New York-based James — whom she has hailed as a “sustainably focused, Black woman immigrant designer who went from starting her dream….at a flea market in Brooklyn to winning @cfda against all odds” — by saying they were there to “kick open the doors at the Met.”

                          “And before haters get wild flying off the handle, New York elected officials are routinely invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing and supporting the city’s cultural institutions for the public,” she said on Instagram. “I was one of several in attendance in this evening.” Mayor Bill de Blasio also attended with his wife, Chirlane McCray.

                          She added the dress was “borrowed” from Brother Vellies, even though it appears to have been made bespoke for her.

                          James had also posted on Instagram, “Working with @aoc to create this dress and this message at this particular moment in time was incredibly important….we can never get too comfortable in our seats at the table once they’ve been given.”

                          AOC’s rep didn’t get back to us.
