My Newswithviews Column, Feb. 14 (‘Just How Crazy is Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal?’)

See the source image

I can’t stop wondering : are Democrats really and truly this far gone? Why would they ever make public a scheme to totally destroy our nation’s economy, social fabric, and political institutions? How crazy are they?

Now, I haven’t heard from anybody who thinks any of this is a good idea–but such people must exist, because the Democrat Party exists. The crazies need candidates to vote for, and the candidates need crazy voters.

    Two words — or one hyphenated word, if you prefer: Cloward-Piven. The idea is to make a society collapse and then rebuild it with all the power in your own hands, I mean into an all-encompassing government Utopia of perfected man, I mean humans, I mean persons, I mean perchildren, I mean…. (It’s getting more and more difficult to avoid triggering syllables, let alone triggering words. Even the above could get me accused of being a speciesist.)

    As for why people vote for this madness, one word will do: brainwashing. It’s been going on for a couple of generations now in the schools.

    Senator McConnell is threatening to bring the New Green Deal to a vote, and all the cockroaches are heading for the shadows.

    Then there is Congresswoman Omar railing against a former Reagan appointee about U.S. military atrocities in Central America three decades ago (and without any context). Why was she doing this? Because like a good socialist she is backing Maduro in Venezuela. And wonder about this, if Omar convinced Americans to institute Sharia Law instead of our Constitution then she wouldn’t be permitted to speak out publicly at all (irony runs deep these days).

    If the Democrats win next time, the U.S. is finished. Same happening here, the liberals are systematically taking our freedom and destroying our country and oddly enough the people are cheering them.
