Following the disastrous rollout of her long-awaited “Green New Deal” which was met by widespread criticism and mockery, socialist sweetheart Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is desperately trying to change the subject.
The plan for a radical socialist transformation of America that promised to convert the entire nation to 100 percent renewable energy in ten years as well as eliminate racism and other social ills became the object of ridicule after a short overview statement was posted on the freshman Democrat’s website.
According to the since-removed document which many are now denying existed “EVERY building in the US” would have to be “upgraded” or replaced, high-speed rail systems would eliminate the need for air travel (and the planes) and promised “economic security” for those “unwilling to work” which would appeal greatly to the lazy bums and unproductive wretches that comprise a good chunk of the party’s base.
The document, however, mentioned some key hurdles like “we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast” which is a line that has elicited the most scathing rebukes of the ridiculously silly, utopian, pie-in-the-sky fantasy of Team AOC.
Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberly Strassel put it best:
1) By the end of the Green New Deal resolution (and accompanying fact sheet) I was laughing so hard I nearly cried. If a bunch of GOPers plotted to forge a fake Democratic bill showing how bonkers the party is, they could not have done a better job. It is beautiful. #GreenNewDeal

The 29-year-old former bartender may be ignorant, dogmatic, shrill and defensive but you have to hand it to her that she has the sort of keen political instincts that will continue to serve her well as she receives special treatment from a fawning media and the millennial dopes who are ready for socialism don’t bother opening a history book.
And as for books, Ocasio-Cortez is taking a page right out of the Hillary Clinton tactical manual by gaslighting the public and trotting out the big lie that she is just another victim of “right-wing” conspiracy theorists.
In conjuring up echoes of the then first lady who bemoaned the “vast right-wing conspiracy” that was intent on wrecking her husband’s presidency, Ocasio-Cortez sent out a flurry of tweets to distract attention from the Green New Deal fiasco.
This stuff is really sad. The GOP is so intellectually bankrupt that they no longer engage to debate issues in good faith, but instead seek to lie, distort, name-call, target, & destroy people/communities w any means possible.
It’s a virus and a race to the bottom.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) blasted Republican critics Saturday after a series of right-wing conspiracy theories about her surfaced on Twitter.
“This stuff is really sad. The GOP is so intellectually bankrupt that they no longer engage to debate issues in good faith, but instead seek to lie, distort, name-call, target, & destroy people/communities w any means possible,” she tweeted early Saturday morning.
“It’s a virus and a race to the bottom.”
A slew of conspiracy theories have bubbled up on social media regarding Ocasio-Cortez’s finances, with some claiming she is secretly wealthy while others mock her working class background.
The freshman Democratic lawmaker responded to a tweet from one Twitter user that claimed she “has a 430 credit score, two evictions, and an empty résumé.” The user suggested Ocasio-Cortez’s background made her ill-equipped to handle economic issues in Congress.
But AOC’s invoking of the “right-wing” conspiracy is a total straw man and relies on what are clearly sarcastic and humorous tweets from bad boys like the incorrigible smartass Mark Dice among others to make her bogus case.
When your #GreenNewDeal legislation is so strong that the GOP has to resort to circulating false versions, but the real one nets 70 House cosponsors on Day 1 and all Dem presidential candidates sign on anyway https://t.co/BbHIn8cu0f

It’s a satire of your stupidity! It’s not a “false version!” 😆 Your skull is filled with cow farts! https://t.co/Cf3SdQHB2B

The document still can be read HERE.
Not that ANYTHING that comes out of the world-class professional B.S. artist Ocasio-Cortez’s mouth can be looked at without skepticism but this is particularly laughable and you know what? Thanks to a media that sees ratings gold in allowing her to get away with dumbing-down the discourse without ever challenging any of her claims, she’s going to get away with it.
Special people get special treatment and that is especially the case with conniving liars as long as they are human sound bite machines like AOC.
