Political rock star Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) likened global warming to the struggle for Civil Rights-- and World War II-- while speaking to an audience of like-minded imbeciles on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day recently. In an interview with Ta-Nehisi Coates in New York City, AOC bleated: “I think that the part of it that is generational is that millennials, and Gen-Z, and all these folks that come after us, are looking up and we’re like, the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change, and your biggest issue is, your biggest issue is how are we going to pay for it?”
The world is going to end if we don’t address climate change? Guess AOC won’t see her 42nd birthday. Damn. “The part of it that is generational” is that your generation never had to pay for anything, your generation never had to pay for anything, and is simply incapable of rational cost-benefit analysis.
She soldiered on: “And like, this is the war, this is our World War II. And I think for younger people, we’re looking at this and we’re like ‘how are we saying, let’s take it easy when 3,000 people died last year?’” Earth to AOC: Over 60 million people died during World War II, three percent of the planet’s population at the time, in just six years. 3,000 people did not die last year from allegedly man-caused global warming.
In full dudgeon now, she continued: “How are we saying let’s take it easy when the nth person has just died from our cruel and unjust criminal justice system?” I don’t recall anyone saying “let’s take it easy” recently, but how many people have “just died” from our cruel and unjust criminals, many of them illegal aliens?
She added: “How are we saying take it easy when the America that we’re living in today is so dystopian with people sleeping in their cars so that they can work a second job without health care?” Um, Alex, the economy is strong and more Americans have health care than ever before. I am not an elite member of society like you are, but I don’t know of anybody who sleeps in their car so they can work two jobs without health care. And here is the definition of dystopian: 1) “relating to or denoting an imagined state or society where there is great suffering or injustice” 2) “An imaginary place where people lead dehumanized and often fearful lives.”
AOC is speaking of an imaginary place, conjured up by her feverish child-like mind, in an effort to appear “woke.” However, if her policy prescriptions are followed, an impoverished and unjust America will not be a dystopian dream, but a tragic reality.
Addressing her penchant for savaging those with whom she disagrees on social (anti-social?) media, the Empire State socialist said, “Until we all start pitching in and holding people accountable, I’m just gonna let them have it!”
Well, I’m holding Occasional-Cortex accountable—I’m just gonna let AOC have it! The world—as we have known it—might actually end in 12 years if morons like her have their way.
