AOC Implies All Americans Deserve a “Home” Until Anyone Can Earn a Profit

Media sensation Ocasio-Cortez has once again shocked the senses of those who believe in free market capitalism by implying that before any individual can earn a profit, everyone should have a “home.”

The idea is clearly radically socialist and upset many on social media.

In addition, AOC implied the ability to earn a profit should be considered a “privilege” as opposed to a right.

From Breitbart

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says the guarantee to a home takes precedence over another individual’s ability to earn a profit.

The New York lawmaker made the controversial remarks during a town hall event in the Bronx. She minimized the significance of her “luxury” living arrangements during the event, comparing it to a public housing unit she recently visited in Queens.

“I move into this building, and it’s marketed as a ‘luxury’ building in D.C.,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “It’s an efficient building, it’s clean, it has public space, it has a rooftop garden—y’all watching my Instagram—it has clean air, it has clean water. And I think about this and I’m like, ‘Hm, this is what a luxury building is like.’”

She spoke ill of tenant-owned, for-profit buildings during the speech, stumping for the universal “right to a dignified home.”

“Another world is possible,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We can live in buildings that are not-for-profit, or tenant-owned, there are so many ways we can slice this and we can structure it in a way where all people have the right to a dignified home.”

She also proclaimed that an individual’s “privilege to earn a profit” should not come before another’s “guarantee” of a home.

“We have to make sure that housing is being legislated as a human right,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “What does that mean? What it means is that our access and our ability and our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit.”

Dan Bongino translated her remarks, tweeting, “In other words, AOC believes you should go to work to pay everyone else’s mortgage. I’d laugh at this if she weren’t serious.”

Dear AOC

Unless they were dumped on the street by a mother who didn’t want them at birth they had a home. If she or her family couldn’t afford to raise them they have legal avenues they can take to provide a home for them. If they were found alive in the ash bin where they were dumped a home is provided them. Perhaps not the best home but one that will sustain them. So what is the point you are attempting to make?

I don’t know anything about your spiritual beliefs but do know that what you are preaching is 180 degrees out of phase with what God’s Word instructs about working.

There are too many passages of God’s Word in scripture to list here but the ones that should really get your attention is 2 Thessalonians 3:9-12. Another couplet of verses is 1
Timothy 5:8-9. If you do claim the Christian faith as your own perhaps you should heed those Words of God. If not, just continue to ignore them like so many others of your following apparently do.

Regardless of what YOU do I shall continue to pray for you.
