If there is one thing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) does not lack, it is drama.
On Friday, Ocasio-Cortez once again used emotion and tears to attempt to gain more support for her climate change agenda, saying her hopes for motherhood are now “bittersweet” because of climate change.
AOC’s Dramatic Plea
Ocasio-Cortez has been pushing her climate change agenda from day one. She has also regularly turned on the waterworks to try to gain support for her platform.
Ocasio-Cortez stated, “I speak to you not as an elected official or a public figure, but I speak to you as a human being. A woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet, because of what I know about our children’s future.”
Those words alone should terrify conservatives, as she refers to herself as an “official” rather than an elected representative for the people.
Ocasio-Cortez went to cite the damage done by Hurricane Maria, stating that living under “colonial rule” is what contributed to the deaths of more than 3,000 people. She, of course, conveniently ignored the rampant corruption uncovered by the tragic aftermath of the hurricane.
Growing Green Movement
When Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal was first introduced, it was considered so unrealistic even members of her own party mocked it.
That attitude, however, has changed dramatically over the last few months, as local politicians have embraced her plan and are using it as a framework to rally climate change supporters.
Now, liberals are getting behind a new movement, the Global Green New Deal, a plan that will work to change building codes for the purpose of reducing the carbon footprint. While liberals tout this agenda, they fail to produce a viable way to pay for it that does not involve crippling the average working citizen.
If they get their way, our tax rates will soar to the point that most Americans will have to rely on the government simply to exist — which is exactly what Democrats want.
The more people rely on the government, the more power the government has, which brings us one step closer to a socialist United States.
Don’t just write off Ocasio-Cortez as “dumb,” because she’s appealing to liberals through emotion and manipulation, which is a very dangerous way to set policy, but unfortunately, her radical ideas are gaining a foothold in the US.
