Does AOC really not care for her abuela's best interests?

How does this make any sense unless the narrative and signaling potential is worth more to AOC than her dear abuela's health?

Conservative commentator Matt Walsh organized a crowdfunding campaign to help the grandmother of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who was living in "squalid conditions" in Puerto Rico. The massively successful GoFundMe campaign raised over $100,000 for AOC's abuela, but the family has reportedly rejected the generous financial offer to repair the grandma's dilapidated home.


The saga started on Wednesday when Ocasio-Cortez shared photos of her grandmother's home that was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September 2017. The far-left congresswoman blamed former President Donald Trump for the lack of hurricane relief.

Many online commenters blasted the Tesla-owning Democratic socialistfor not spreading her own wealth to fix her abuela's damaged home.

 

Matt Walsh, a writer for the Daily Wire, took a more charitable approach. Walsh launched a GoFundMe campaign titled "Save AOC's Abuela's Ancestral Home." At the time of publication, the campaign raised $104,153 for AOC's abuela. 

Walsh provided an update on the crowdfunding campaign on Saturday morning, which indicated that the charitable gesture was not well-received.

What is worth noting here is that Walsh's audience is conservative, and he does not reach many liberals, and yet his audience helped raise a hundred grand for the grandmother of a woman most of the dislike, at best. The generosity of conservatives never fails to show itself in times of need. 
 

AOC could have done this and raised a multiple for her abuela, why didn’t she? Why doesn’t she now if she does not want to touch the dirty conservative money? 
 

Would it deprive AOC of something to complain about, a signaling totem? 

 

More comments: 

 

"It's pretty fascinating, really. We raised enough to change her grandmother's life," Walsh continued. "We could have raised enough to lift her whole neighborhood out of poverty. AOC shut it down. She'd rather leave people to suffer than accept help from us. Very revealing episode."

 

There were spirited reactions to the rejected crowdfunding campaign for AOC's abuela. 

 

Social media personality Mike Cernovich said, "This is possibly elder abuse. The money was abuela's - who according to AOC was nearly homeless. Refusing this money could be a crime depending on the circumstances as it's depriving an elderly person of money legally owned by her."

 

Journalist Tim Pool reacted by saying, "This is actually disgusting wtf? AOC could have just thanked them, made if fun. She could have made this something warming."

 

The Daily Wire co-founder Jeremy Boreing noted, "Imagine neither helping your grandmother when she's living in terrible conditions, nor allowing others to help her. I guess @AOC only wants your money if the government takes it against your will."

Conservative author Candace Owens asked, "This is shocking. Is @AOC legally allowed to deny the funds? The money wasn't for her. Abuela is SUFFERING. Why would wealthy AOC insist money be routed to Abuela from the government, but block over $100,000 from philanthropists?"

 

Twitter user Allahpundit joked, "At the very least aoc should let grandma sleep in the back seat of her tesla."

 

Walsh reacted to criticism to his GoFundMe campaign, which one media outlet labeled as a "personal attack" on Ocasio-Cortez.

 

"Was it trolling? Was it a stunt? Was it charitable? Was it proving a point? Was it trying to solve a problem? Was it a sincere attempt to raise money for a cause? Was it mean? Was it nice? Was it hilarious? Yes," Walsh tweeted.

AOC would have approved, if the government would have taken that money by force, then given it to her granny.   That's the lib way to do things.

Trump blocked Hurricane relief dollars to Puerto Rico?  Ahh, the wonders of Social Media where any leftist Democrat politician can post any lie they want and if anyone dare challenge that lie, Social Media just blocks them.
