It seems Amazon has teamed with another company to create and issue a credit card that would be issuable to Amazon’s Prime members. It doesn’t matter what the purpose and parameters of the card are—they’re legal under existing law.
But none of that matters. Senator and Progressive-Democratic Party Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (I, VT) and his trophy BFF, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D, NY), object to the card because it doesn’t suit their requirements. And since they object, they’ve vowed to destroy the card, should Sanders be elected President.
It doesn’t matter what their objections are; Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez intend to use Government power to destroy a private enterprise’s product because that product wouldn’t fit their government’s purpose for private enterprise products.
Sanders pretends his ideology, his policy, is democratic socialism. No, this example of his is straight up socialism. In particular, it’s the fascism subset of socialism, since Sanders would presume to have government impose its production policy on a private enterprise.
The sad—and dangerous—thing is, Sanders knows this distinction full well, even if Ocasio-Cortez might not.
