Obligatory Post About Ocasio-Cortez and Cow Farts
I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely sick and tired of this Ocasio-Cortez chick.
She is totally addicted to the attention that has been poured on her since her surprise primary win last year, and you know what, friends, conservatives are just as much to blame as the adoring left-wing media for her huge head and endless coverage.
Of course, it’s impossible to ignore her latest attempt to get her name in the headlines yet again, because it is the culmination of everything wrong with her presence in politics in the first place.
Her Green New Deal, which she unveiled yesterday, is a bat-sh*t crazy proposal to completely overhaul the American economy as we know it and turn our nation into Venezuela quicker than you can say “1,000,000% inflation.”
She wants to rebuild every building in the US.
She wants to make air travel obsolete.
She wants to ban the combustion engine.
She wants to require all new jobs be unionized.
She wants to put an end to the entire American energy sector.
She is also, hilariously and confoundingly, terribly concerned about cow farts.
That’s right, the girl who regularly whines about how Republicans don’t take her seriously because she’s young and inexperienced and says so many absolutely idiotic things is not only bold-faced trying to completely destroy our economy in 10 years, but she is leading the charge against cow farts.
This is an actual quote, I repeat, an actual quote from the FAQ section of the proposal:
Why 100% clean and renewable and not just 100% renewable? Are you saying we won’t transition o fossil fuels?
Yes, we are calling for a full transition o fossil fuels and zero greenhouse gases. Anyone who has read the resolution sees that we spell this out through a plan that calls for eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from every sector of the economy. Simply banning fossil fuels immediately won’t build the new economy to replace it – this is the plan to build that new economy and spells out how to do it technically. We do this through a huge mobilization to create the renewable energy economy as fast as possible. We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast, but we think we can ramp up renewable manufacturing and power production, retrofit every building in America, build the smart grid, overhaul transportation and agriculture, plant lots of trees and restore our ecosystem to get to net-zero
Red State reports that this has since been removed, likely because she has received so much heat for such a ridiculous assertion.
But the Green New Deal itself remains, and it is indescribably insane she thinks any of it is even remotely viable. It reminds me of something I would have written in 6th grade for one of those “if kids ruled the world” things.
If AOC is the kind of kid that will soon be ruling the world, dear, sweet Lord help us.
