Well, that was fast!
Twenty-something Congresswoman, former bartender, and all-around yonk Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lit up the national chat room last Thursday, Feb. 7, by posting a “Green New Deal” that was certainly one of the most bizarre documents ever to seep out of American politics. After a day of incredulity, mockery, and concern for the bozo’s mental health, the post was deleted from the page on the night of Feb. 7 (https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/02/why_was_the_green_new_deal_yanked_from_ocasiocortezs_website.html).
Among the provisions that got the most flak was 1) to pay a guaranteed income to persons “unwilling to work,” 2) to abolish air travel and replace it with “high-speed rail” [to Europe?], and 3) to tear down every building in America and replace it with a new one.
Well, yeah, that’s pretty crazy stuff, all right. Rubber room material for sure. Cuckoo for cocoa puffs.
So they wiped it off the website and are trying to pretend it was never there, or maybe it was but Republican hackers planted it, or it was just a rough draft that wasn’t supposed to be published, blah-blah-blah. Ocrazyo-Cortez reminds us that “the real one”–apparently there’s a “real Green New Deal” somewhere that doesn’t include any howling at the moon–has “70 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives” and has been endorsed by every single one of a dozen Democrat presidential candidates. I guess “the real one” only confiscates our cars, brings back Obamacare, and makes us all Citizens Of The World, subject to United Nations supervision… ‘Cause we’re just deplorables and we all need supervision, dontcha know.
So they reached out to steal a marshmallow and got their fingers burned: snatch ’em back, put ’em in your mouth, and try again a little later.
A little bit here, a little bit there, and eventually they’ve got us where they want us–pressed face-down to the floor, with their boots on our necks.
But it’s all To Save The P*L*A*N*E*T! So that makes it necessary.
