You have no doubt seen the memes with Bernie and his mittens showing up everywhere like Waldo.

Slate managed to interview the lady who made the mittens. You can’t get them any more.

So I put it out there that I made the mittens, they were a gift, and they’re not knitted, they’re sewn from repurposed and up-cycled sweaters. At that time, I had 30 or 40 mittens for sale and being a little naïve about Twitter, I put my Gmail account on that, which someone picked up yesterday and retweeted it. People have been contacting me thinking that they can get mittens, and actually they can’t. I don’t have any more, and I don’t have much of a mitten business anymore because it really wasn’t worth it. Independent crafters get really taken for a ride by the federal government. We get taxed to the nth degree, and it wasn’t really worth it pursuing that as a business, even as a side hustle. I mostly just make them as gifts.

A socialist enjoying the fruits of capitalism is a perfect metaphor for woke lefties logging onto capitalist Twitter on their capitalist Apple devices to complain about capitalism and “inequality.”
