Video: ‘Pompous twit’ AOC suggests war against hurricanes at Green New Deal town hall

While hawking her economy-destroying Green New Deal at a town hall event put on by MSNBC, newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested to host Chris Hayes that the United States wage war against hurricanes, comparing Hurricane Maria to the September 11, 2001, terror attacks that killed some 3,000 innocent people.

“On the events of September 11, 2001, thousands of Americans died in the largest terrorist attack on U.S. soil and our national response, whether we agree with it or not, our national response was to go to war in one then eventually two countries,” she told Hayes. “Three thousand Americans died in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Where is our response?”

Translation: Let’s go to war against hurricanes.

At least, that’s what it sounds like to us.

Naturally, Twitter had a field day with the New York socialist recently dubbed a “pompous little twit” by a co-founder of Greenpeace.

Twitchy posted some of the responses to her insane statement:

Works for us!

You’re either with us, or you’re with the hurricanes…


Sadly, that’s precisely the reaction her statement prompted, which speaks volumes.

But if AOC and her uninformed ilk have their way, there’ll be no more cars so that concern will be rendered academic.

Ocasio-Cortez had quite a lot to say during what was described as an “hour-long pitch for Socialist Revolution.”
