Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz torched New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and extremists Democrats at the SXSW convention.

“We’re living in a society right now where you can send a tweet about anything … and all of a sudden you’re an iconic celebrity. … But that’s not going to solve the issues that we’re facing,” he said on Saturday, an apparent reference to Ocasio-Cortez.

But he was not done, in fact he was only getting started in tearing a strip off of extremist Democrats who he says are driving him to run for president as an independent.

He said that Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Ocasio-Cortez were “well-intentioned” but called their policy proposals not realistic.

“They love the country. They have their core beliefs. But you have to ask yourself … is it realistic to think that these things can be achieved?” he said.

“You can’t try and solve one extreme with the other,” he added. “And now we have a new extreme, and it’s the Democratic platform,” he said.

He said that he did not leave the Democrat Party “the Democratic Party has left me,” and he torched Democrat socialists like Sen. Bernie Sanders and Ocasio Cortez.

“Americans are not going to embrace socialism,” he said as he also mentioned California Sen. Kamala Harris.

But what got Ocasio-Cortez angry was when Schultz took aim at her Green New Deal and its ridiculousness.

“Schultz criticizing Green New Deal for the provision about making every building energy efficient. “That’s a well-intentioned idea, but it’s never gonna happen.” Crowd is dead silent,” reporter Dave Weigel said.

“Ah yes, because we‘ve all drawn upon the rich inspiration of American leaders who‘ve inspired a nation in crisis by saying, ‘No, You Can’t,’” she said.
