Liberals are infuriated that former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is mulling entering the 2020 presidential contest as a third-party and have redirected a good chunk of the hate mob from President Trump to bully and threaten a man who in only a matter of days, has exposed their radicalism.
Schultz’s new book came out on Monday and he has been making the media rounds in support of it but is also using the spotlight to express his dismay with the Democrats and their transformation into a socialist rat pack led by the buck-toothed former bartender and media superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
AOC has in less than a month put her stamp on a party that was already careening toward communism with her “Green New Deal” and calls for a 70 percent tax rate on productive people and it could be that Schultz is the perfect foil.
Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who is seriously considering running a run for president as an Independent, called the billionaire-bashing ideas of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., “misinformed” and “un-American” at the first stop of his book tour Monday night in New York City.
When asked about how her advisers have said American billionaires are evidence of policy failures and a failure of the system, he replied: “It’s so un-American to think that way.”
He continued about taking advantage of the opportunities in life presented to him: “I am self-made. I came from the projects and took advantage of the promise of the country. I am living proof of the American Dream.”
Just last week, Ocasio-Cortez told a crowd in New York City that “a world that allows for billionaires” is immoral, although she did point out that not all billionaires themselves are immoral, noting the philanthropy of Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.
Ocasio-Cortez, Pocahontas and Comrade Bernie have been the vanguard of the class warriors who have taken advantage of the lack of leadership to set a new course for the Dems but now the class war may have been joined by a man who doesn’t have to worry about the dirty money of the billionaires Soros and Steyer who are underwriting the left’s communist revolution.
This is gonna be one helluva show.
