Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Cavuto,” Job Creators Network’s Alfredo Ortiz, the head of the group behind billboards in New York City’s Times Square attacking Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for her successful effort to end Amazon’s attempt to locate its so-called HQ2 in New York City, explained the motivation of the group’s campaign.
Ortiz tied it to the rise of socialism.
“It really is about this growing trend of socialism and ideas that just don’t make sense,” Ortiz said.
He went on to read an email from a supporter of his effort who claimed to be a concerned private citizen questioning the popularity of that ideology.
“This why we’re doing what we’re doing, Neil, because the entire way our country has become the envy of the world is all under attack by a social movement,” he added.
Ortiz credit Ocasio-Cortez for bringing his organization, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and President Donald Trump.
