Socialist AOC has opened up an online shop full of super expensive merch. But one of the best items is a Green New Deal hoodie made out of some not so green materials.
Andy Swan summed up the irony in just four images:

Yeah, the sweatshirt is 20% polyester and polyester is indeed a synthetic fiber derived from petroleum. Seems to me like this new deal is about a different kind of green.
(money. I’m talking about money.)
You also just have to appreciate the shameless capitalism of this self-avowed socialist. It’s beautiful!
Listen, I don’t have any issue with someone capitalizing on their notoriety to make a buck. This is America. More power to you. But when you spend your days criticizing the evils of capitalism, it seems more than a little tone-deaf to open up your own online merch store to hawk t-shirts and hoodies.
But hey maybe I’m crazy 🤷♂️
Oh, oh, oh! There’s one more thing!
The store also (again, unironically) features another $65 hoodie. This one reads “tax the rich,” And…
Who do you expect is gonna buy that except rich people???

So, if you have some expendable income that you want to see go toward a terrible cause, feel free to browse the whole store yourself.
I guess socialism sells.
