The New York Democrat thought she was on the verge of victory on her signature issue.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lost it when this viral video ruined her life for good.
So-called “climate change” is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s pet issue.
Ocasio-Cortez hysterically claimed humanity only had 12 years left before global warming destroyed the planet.
In response, Ocasio-Cortez proposed the $93 trillion-dollar Green New Deal which banned jet travel, fossil fueled cars, and restricted meat diets because cow farts allegedly warm up the planet.
But that move backfired.
Ocasio-Cortez’s comically Marxist “Green New Deal” turned her into a national punch line.
Ever since that P.R. disaster, Ocasio-Cortez fought to regain the momentum on combating so-called “climate change.”
The latest example of Ocasio-Cortez flailing about was a video she posted to her social media where Ocasio-Cortez claimed warming temperatures would melt glaciers unleashing medieval plagues that humanity had no cure for.
“There are a lot of diseases that are frozen in some of these glaciers that scientists fear that there is a potential that a lot of diseases could escape these melted glaciers,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
“Things that were frozen for thousands of years, and that they’re going to get into our water, and that humans could contract them, and they’re going to be diseases that are thousands of years old that have vectors that we are not prepared for, that we have never seen,” Ocasio-Cortez ranted, “Um…and so that’s a concern…Even if there are no diseases frozen at all in these glaciers, you have diseases that are spread by mosquitoes, and now mosquitoes are starting to fly further north that carry diseases like malaria, and a whole slew of other things.”
Democrats hysterically warn about so-called “climate change” because it acts as a Trojan horse to impose the entire left-wing agenda.
If humanity is consuming too many resources and warming the planet because of energy consumption, then the answer is fewer humans and population control through abortion.
Democrats also use so-called “climate change” to raise taxes through a tax on carbon emissions.
Union bosses that fund the Democrat Party will see their bank accounts swell because the “Green New Deal” calls for rebuilding every structure in America to be more sustainable which is nothing more than a payoff to the unions whose forced dues power Democrat party candidates and issues.
The so-called “Green New Deal” also calls for a government takeover of healthcare and a Marxist guaranteed basic income.
Democrats know they can’t pass any of these priorities into law as individual pieces of legislation.
They need a crisis they can use as a catch-all excuse to ram the entire left-wing agenda through Congress.
Enter climate change.
But not even liberals actually believe climate change is a real threat.
Barack and Michelle Obama just bought a $15 million-dollar beachfront mansion.
If the left’s doomsday predictions are to be believed, that is a lousy investment because rising sea levels due to climate change melting arctic glaciers will submerge Obama’s new house.
Clearly the Obamas don’t believe that hysteria is based in any fact.
The left just whips up a furor over climate change because they know a manufactured crisis is the only way they are getting this “Green New Deal” through Congress.
