Hours before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for an “agenda of reparations” at an Al Sharpton-sponsored event in New York on Friday, she was slammed as “financially illiterate” at the same conference for killing the Amazon deal with the state.

Ocasio-Cortez spoke to the crowd at the National Action Network, saying her Green New Deal will consider reparations to black Americans for slavery in addition to the radical overhaul of the economy in a bid to combat climate change.

The article goes on to state the following:

But at the same conference, hours before Ocasio-Cortez’s speech, an investor ripped those who opposed the Amazon deal with the state that would have generated billions in tax revenue and 25,000 jobs.

“The people campaigning against the Amazon campus are financially illiterate,” said Tracy Maitland, president and chief investment officer of Advent Capital Management during a panel discussion the Black Economic Agenda, according to the New York Post.

    This is what Boston University is turning out these days? She maintains that her “first love” was science. Why then would you pursue a degree in Economics Really? If she does, (which I don’t believe for a minute) George Soros paid people to take her tests for her, because her handle on the subject is nil. It might have helped her make change at the bar, but otherwise, she is just laughably stupid and ignorant. And she has a voice that will make your ears bleed.
