Alexandria Ocasio Cortez continues to excite here. She’s arguing that a system which allows billionaires to exist is immoral because of jock itch. Not that she quite said that even if that’s the meaning of what she did.
For this ringworm is indeed jock itch. An infection carried by some 20% of the population at any one time. It is this very thing which shows that the current socioeconomic order is immoral:
Ocasio-Cortez: System that allows billionaires is ‘immoral’
Gosh, why’s that?
The New York Democrat made the statement while responding to a question from writer Ta-Nehisi Coates at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event in Harlem. “I do think that a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Ringworm is a common fungal skin infection otherwise known as tinea. Ringworm most commonly affects the skin on the body (tinea corporis), the scalp (tinea capitis), the feet (tinea pedis, or athlete’s foot), or the groin (tinea cruris, or jock itch).
You’re right, capitalism is immoral because athlete’s foot or jock itch.
Tomorrow AOC will solemnly inform us that socialism is moral because Twinkies.
