It’s Official: Ocasio-Cortez’s Socialist “Green New Deal” Would Mean $13 Gas — PER GALLON

AOC’s chief of staff recently admitted that the “Green New Deal” is not about helping the climate.

It’s about changing the economy. His words, no joke.

Meaning, the GND is really about redistribution of wealth.

If the multi-trillion dollar plan went into effect, gas prices would rise to $13 per gallon.

From Washington Examiner:

The socialistic Green New Deal, pushed by New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and winning broad support from Democratic presidential candidates could lead to a $10 increase on a single gallon of gas, according to a new study of the so-called “carbon tax” and the liberal bid to rid vehicles that burn fossil fuels.

The CO2 Coalition’s study, mostly focused on the government’s effort to assign an environmental price on the future “Social Cost of Carbon,” also looked at the ultimate goal of liberals to rid gas-powered autos, key to the Green New Deal.

Executive Director Caleb S. Rossiter said the study calculated what it would cost to get people to trade their gas-powered cars for electric vehicles.

[…]

The result: A $10 per gallon gas tax and final price of some $13, or about the cost of shifting to EVs, about $2,700. “That is the economic breaking point of driving gas-powered cars,” he said.

It’s almost reactionary at this point for AOC to say silly things.

She’s now blaming her Holocaust-comparison comments on GOP Rep. Liz Cheney (WY), because when in doubt: DEFLECT!

From Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued to lie about her remarks from last week comparing Nazi concentration camps to immigrant detention facilities as she falsely claimed on Monday that Liz Cheney (R-WY) was responsible for the words that Ocasio-Cortez said.

She tweeted:

VOTER POLL: Do You Support Trump’s NATIONAL EMERGENCY To Build The Wall?

Reminder: the member who directly + explicitly compared concentration camps on our border to the Holocaust was *Liz Cheney.*

The horrors of the Holocaust went beyond the use of concentration camps, yet camps were part of the process.

They have also been used before and after.

If you doubt it, here’s the original tweet. This is a deliberate, intentional, wild jump made by Republicans (frankly, often) for the explicit purpose of eliciting + manipulating pain for political purposes.

Meanwhile, kids are still dying.

AOC knows so little of which she speaks that she single-handedly makes her entire party look like a bunch of goofs.

Check out what happens when she gets caught not knowing what she’s talking about…

From Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tried to suggest a “GOP” lawmaker was being creepy for taking a picture next to a poster cutout of her and ended up being widely mocked for not realizing that the lawmaker was actually a Democrat.

The Kentucky Republican Party posted a picture of Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) next to a cutout poster of Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet, writing: “#ThrowbackThursday last month the socialists threatened the lone #Kentucky #Democrat in Congress if he didn’t bend to their radical, extremist will: looks like @AOC and #socialism are calling the shots for @KyDems now!”

AOC’s response:

Right before her major flub, Alexandria was doing what she does best: attacking Republicans on Twitter.

SEE IT:

To avoid looking completely + utterly out of touch w/ the reality our prison system:

Instead of asking, “Should the Boston Bomber have the right to vote?”

Try, “Should a nonviolent person stopped w/ a dime bag LOSE the right to vote?”

Bc that question reflects WAY more people.

Reminder:
– Slavery ➡️ Jim Crow + Redlining ➡️ War on Drugs ➡️ Mass Incarceration

– Black Americans & PoC are far more likely to be convicted + sentenced longer than White Americans for similar crimes.

– Our system routinely criminalizes poverty + exonerates wealth

Many rebut the voting question by saying, “Well, *those* people shouldn’t be jailed.”

Glad you feel that way! But the truth is, the US incarcerates more people per capita than anywhere in the world – even more than China.

Our system is built to disenfranchise people of color ⬇️
