New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is backtracking from her initial release of the Green New Deal at light speed, and it’s easy to see why.
The resolution, which was basically full-scale communism for people who shop at Whole Foods, called for some of the wildest things ever proposed in the past 100 years. Among these was a commitment to rebuild every single building in the United States, phasing out air travel by replacing planes with trains, and paying people who are “unwilling to work.”
Ocasio-Cortez has gone so far as to say the document people were reading — which is still archived on her own website — was fake. No, it wasn’t written by a woman who spent her whole life in privilege only to suddenly became super into socialism — it was the work of right-wing trolls.
Simply put, she’s lying. And, she continued lying when she tried to convince all of us that the wrong “draft” of the summary was uploaded. Even if that’s the case, how did these absurd ideas even make it onto the first draft?
But, the best part about all of this was the bill’s nod to cow farts — we’re not kidding. Since cow flatulence supposedly contributes to green house gas emissions, cows are considered part of the problem.
If these poor, delicious animals were able to respond to this nonsense, we like to think it would look something like this.
