This week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez embarrassed herself for the second time in just a few days when she claimed, without evidence, that climate change was responsible for the border crisis that Trump is trying to solve.
Fresh off her cringeworthy “verbal blackface” incident at an Al Sharpton event in New York City, Ocasio-Cortez once again went back to her favorite well – the climate hysteria that has marked her as a true-blue American idiot.
“The far-right loves to drum up fear & resistance to immigrants,” she tweeted on Tuesday. “But have you ever noticed they never talk about what‘s causing people to flee their homes in the first place? Perhaps that’s bc they’d be forced to confront 1 major factor fueling global migration: Climate change.”
Why…that calls for a GREEN NEW DEAL!
Is anyone really taking this woman seriously anymore?
Alas, AOC wasn’t done making herself look like a fool for the night. In another tweet, she jumped on the liberal bandwagon of blacklisting former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen from corporate America.
“In stealing 1000s of children, deporting their parents,& refusing to provide info for reunification, Sec. Nielsen oversaw one of the largest-scale human rights violations in recent history,” she wrote. “Awarding her a lucrative deal or prestigious post is to legitimize+celebrate that abuse.”
We assume that every police officer or prosecutor who has “separated families” by throwing a mother or father behind bars is also guilty of a historical atrocity.
Finally, Ocasio-Cortez went back to her New Green Baby, defending against those meanie Republicans who keep mocking the absurd legislation.
“The GOP, corp lobbyists, & Fox expose their dishonesty every time they claim the #GND ‘bans cows,’ steals people’s farms, takes your grandma’s lunch money &costs $100 zillion. Maybe if they actually did their job & read HRes109, they could avoid embarrassing themselves so often,” she wrote.
No one has said that the Green New Dumb would take gramma’s lunch money or steal anyone’s farm.
Experts have said that the proposals put forth in the package, however, would cost as much as $93 trillion over ten years. That’s less than $100 zillion (we think?), but it’s enough.
As for banning cows…well, here’s what Ocasio-Cortez’s office said about that subject in a FAQ sheet released alongside the resolution: “We 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…”
So maybe she’s merely proposing we ban “farting cows” while retaining those bovines who have evolved beyond the need to pass gas.
Is she quite sure that it’s Fox and the GOP who need to “avoid embarrassing themselves so often”?
