Last week, Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez whispered “a secret” to her social media followers telling them that “most people don’t Really know what capitalism is.”
The socialist Congresswoman from New York wanted to “educate” her followers as to what capitalism and socialism really are.
Unfortunately, many people enjoyed adding their thoughts to her video via Twitter and other social networks.
Pssst. I’ll tell you a secret: AOC is an embarrassment to Congress and to women everywhere.

Whispering AOC: ‘Most people don’t really know what capitalism is.’
“Let me tell you a secret,” Ocasio-Cortez whispered to her Instagram followers. “Most people don’t really know what capitalism is.”
She added, “Most people don’t even know what socialism is. But most people are not capitalists, because they don’t have capitalist money. They’re not billionaires.”
The socialist self-described then said to the viewers that policy discussion should be more important than labels.

“The label doesn’t matter as much as talking about policies,” Ocasio-Cortez whisper. “That’s easier to understand.”
She then proceeded with policy specifics, saying, “Do you think people should die because they can’t afford insulin? Do you think that fossil fuel CEOs should decide whether the planet gets set on fire?”
“Me neither,” AOC added.
Apparently this is her idea of “talking about policies.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s whispering video appeared to be part of Q&A session on her Instagram story. She was apparently asked by a follower, as could be seen in text above her head, “How do you respond when people accuse you of being a ‘socialist’?”
AOC’s whispering is reminiscent of President Joe Biden, who has had a habit of doing the same thing.
In January, Biden answered a reporter’s question about school closings by whispering.

Biden was also giving answers to reporters June 2021. This many people found amusing.

Biden and AOC are criticized for their whining
Sen. Josh Hawley’s Press Secretary Abigail Marone tweeted at the time, “The Biden lean in and long whisper into the mic was very very bizarre.”
Brigitte Gabriel is a conservative activist added, “Creepy Joe is really creepy.”
It was not hard to find conservatives who mocked AOC.
A partner in the satire-site Babylon Bee was Not The Bee and absolutely smashed AOC like only they could:

Conservative commentator Tim Pool tweeted, “Before making the video, AOC ought to have done a Google search on capitalist. but i hope the ASMR channel works for her.”
AOC should have googled the definition of capitalist before making this video

Author Gad Saad impliedOcasio Cortez was in control and the U.S. was headed for disaster.
“One of the most powerful women,” Saad remarked of the video on Twitter.
“Good luck USA. You had a good run,” he finished, bidding adieu to America.
AOC’s word salad received a strong endorsement from the real-life Socialist Party of Great Britain, perhaps unsurprisingly:
You can’t disagree with this from @AOC. Most people aren’t capitalists, and if it’s too extreme for working people to own the means of production, then why is it okay for private billionaires to own the means of production? Don’t whisper it though. It should be made public loudly and clearly. pic.twitter.com/H5wqLeUrsF
