It seems that newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now engaging in outright propaganda to sell her economy-destroying Green New Deal. In a video she co-authored in collaboration with The Intercept, Ocasio-Cortez doubles down on her claim the world will be essentially destroyed in 12 years and will be miraculously fixed by her plan which will cost more money than exists on Earth and if fully implemented, could actually be deadly.
“It’s often said you can’t be what you can’t see,” Ocasio-Cortez says in the narration, according to Teen Vogue. “I think there was something similar with the Green New Deal. We knew that we need to save the planet and that we had all the technology to do it, but people were scared. They said it was too big, too fast, not practical. I think that’s because they just couldn’t picture it yet.”
The Daily Wire added:
AOC takes predicable swings at the fossil fuel industry, “massive corporations,” and corrupt politicians, and suggests that the devastating 2017 hurricane to hit Puerto Rico, Hurricane Maria, was caused by man-made global warming. “It was like a climate bomb,” she says.
The congresswoman then warns that we have “twelve years to change everything” before “hundreds of millions of people would be more likely to face food and water shortages, poverty, and death.”
“Twelve years to change everything,” she narrates. “How we got around, how we fed ourselves, how we made our stuff, how we lived and worked — everything. The only way to do it was to transform our economy, which we already knew was broken.”
Here’s the rather cartoonish propaganda video, if you can stand it:
She also predicted Democrats would take the White House in 2020. The video highlights “Medicare for all,” and federal jobs guarantees with “living wages,” a huge part of her Green New Deal.
And as the Daily Wire noted, the video ends with a young girl from the Bronx named Ileana — “a true child of the Green New Deal” — taking over Ocasio-Cortez’s House seat after running a publicly-funded campaign. And of course, the planet is saved as a result of the Green New Deal.
Comments on YouTube were pretty much what you’d expect:
- “We are all now dumber for having watched this, may God have mercy on our souls.”
- “I like to call this ‘Art of Idiots’. Is this more than 12 years in the future? We would all be dead by then right?”
- “You had the chance to vote on the new green deal and you told the democrat senators to vote ‘present'”
- “Did I miss the part in the presentation where they voted on the Green New Deal again after it failed 57-0 in the Senate?”
No, you didn’t miss it, it was conveniently left out, as was her role in that failure.
What’s more terrifying? The attempt to rebrand authoritarianism as warm and fuzzy? Or the fact that AOC actually thinks that her insanity is the key to turning America into a green utopia? It’s tough to decide. Let’s just call it a draw.
Reaction on Twitter? You got it…
This is one of the most delusional, terrifying things I have ever seen in my life.

This is ludicrous. It's almost like satire. https://t.co/AKm0FNMMzA— Pradheep J. Shanker (@Neoavatara) April 17, 2019
It’s worse than that…
As Twitchy noted, it’s far worse than satire because it’s being put forward as fact by an elected member of the House of Representatives.
It's easy to laugh at this, but the underlying creepy totalitarianism ("child of the Green New Deal," "public option guarantee" for jobs, caregiving for family described as "low-carbon work") is not funny at all. https://t.co/MgE25nYJ3u— Inez Stepman (@InezFeltscher) April 17, 2019
No, it’s not. Nor is it funny that a large segment of the population will fall for this blatant propaganda hook, line and sinker, thanks in part to a biased media and an “education” system that no longer teaches students how to engage in critical thinking.
One person asked:
What does medicare for all have to do with saving the planet? For that matter there really wasn’t anything highlighted here that would “save” our planet in this imagined 12 year mark. Seems like you’re using the guise of climate change to further your own socialist agenda.— Eruditio (@ayoungthinker) April 17, 2019
Of course it has nothing to do with global climate change. It’s just an excuse to push Socialism, something that has never worked.
Welcome to “1984.” Or at least, Ocasio-Cortez’s vision of it.
