Elder Patriot | Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez represents the new breed of Democrat.
Completely unmasked in their avarice to control every aspect of your life – especially your money – they create artificial crises and then campaign on instituting expensive fixes.
For Democrats, these crises and fixes are forever changing and reversing direction.
First our military should be used only to defend the homeland. Now Democrats only want the military deployed to defend foreign countries.
First they wanted the wall, now they don’t.
First they were against the Iraq war, then they were for it, until they were against it.
First the earth is overheating and now that it has been cooling over the past decade they’ve renamed the crisis “climate change.”
First they’re for animal rights, now they’re against them.
Hypocrisy on display.
How do you set policy to address global climate change when the earth is an ecosystem constantly adjusting itself to maintain its equilibrium like a swinging pendulum?
Enter the arrogant 29-year-old wunderkind, Ocasio-Cortez, the product of the Maduro School of Business at Boston University whose most recent job before becoming a member of the House of Representatives was waitressing.
She has all of the answers. Give the government all of your money so that we can tear down your homes, takeaway your hamburgers, and eliminate air travel and cows – because they fart methane.
Apparently methane is a gas that, in large enough quantities, exacerbates global warming. Does that make me next on their list of targets?
The fact that the earth has been cooling is an inconvenient truth that Ocasio-Cortex addresses by bringing the curative actions she wants under the umbrella of “climate change.”
But, how you can address a changing climate if you don’t know, or can’t acknowledge, in which direction the change is occurring?
Ocasio-Cortez, or AOC as she refers to herself, tells us the earth will be uninhabitable by humans in 12 years if we don’t radically change the way we live… and give her all of her money to force those changes on us.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain – Al Gore the original climate alarmist/hoaxer- who told also us that “humanity may have only 10 years left to save the planet from turning into a total frying pan.” That was in 2006 and not a single one of his dire predictions have happened.
Regardless, as with every other Marxist construct, these political ploys always keep being recycled. Why? Because there’s big money in managing other people’s money. And the more of their money you manage, the more that’s in it for you.
Gore’s net worth is estimated to be between $200-300 million. This would make Gordon Gekko envious.
This has not escaped the notice of AOC, who proposed a Green New Deal that, with an estimated price tag of $40 Trillion, is the largest spending program ever proposed… by far.
Even the cows have to give under her plan to save the world, as AOC explained on the premiere of Showtime’s “Desus & Mero.”
In the original draft of the GND, AOC “set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.”
When the show’s hosts asked why cow farts were so important AOC was ready with an answer:
“In the deal, what we talk about, and it’s true, is that we need to take a look at factory farming, you know? Period. It’s wild.” WTF does that mean?
“And so it’s not to say you get rid of agriculture, it’s not to say we’re gonna force everybody to go vegan or anything crazy like that. But it’s to say, ‘Listen, we gotta address factory farming. Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Like, let’s keep it real.’”
“But we have to take a look at everything,” the ultra-left-wing pol continued, “and what we need to realize about climate change is about every choice that we make in our lives, you know?”
“…climate change is about every choice that we make in our lives, you know?” She just let the cat out of the bag. Whether AOC knows it or not, the plan is to use the climate as the excuse to control “every choice that we make in our lives.”
And AOC, the winner of the Starbucks lottery to fill a House seat, will make those choices for us… and for the cows.
This is what passes for liberty in the AOC-led Democrat world. It’s a world of give and take after all. You work your ass off and give, politicians take.
Wondering how the SJW’s that attacked Chick-fil-A are gonna deal with her hypocrisy?
