Soup Nazi’s Are Bad Too
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is just the most fascinating person to follow in the area of politics. She won the Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district defeating the incumbent Congressman, Democrat Chair Joe Crowley and she has been a tour de force nationally ever since.
Why? Because she says interesting things. Also really stupid things.
The apple of the eye of the American socialist movement said last night that we need to go after global warming like we did the Nazis in Germany. Yup. If there is something that fascists & socialists know is making comparisons to political systems they agree with.
According to the Daily Wire…
Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Friday at a campaign event that the United States’ blueprint for beating global warming needs to be the same as the blueprint the U.S. used for defeating Nazi Germany in the 1940s.
“So we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before.”
“None of these things are new ideas,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “What we had was an existential threat in the context of a war. We had a direct existential threat with another nation, this time it was Nazi Germany, and axis, who explicitly made the United States as an enemy, as an enemy.”
Now first thing first. Let’s stop calling her or anyone a “Democratic Socialist.” That is like saying “Dry Diarrhea.” The two words are in no way shape or form compatible.
Ocasio-Cortez is trying to make the point that Global Warming is such a threat to American interests and the world at large that we need to go onto war footing politically and economically.
“It may seem like really big, it may seem really ambitious, it may seem really ‘radical’ as us [inaudible] like to say,” the congressional candidate continued. “But the fact of the matter is we are dealing with a radical truth and a radical reality, and the more we choose to ignore it the worse we are doing by our children, and our grandchildren, and frankly ourselves.”
She wants to deal with radical truth and radical reality which I was not aware that reality or truth was radical in nature but I will let her pass on this one point being she might have just been “living in the moment” as all the kids do these days.
The Heartland Institue has been one of the leading organizations that have been following the CO2 trail (see what I did there?) of those that would want to do something like Cortez. Last year they put out a piece called GLOBAL WARMING: FAKE NEWS FROM THE START and is a must-read.
There are many people who are well versed in the science of this that are skeptical of the 97% of all climatologists say global warming is happening and we should have a full-blown debate about this. One that Al Gore who has made billions on this subject should attend but won’t, being he is kinda a fraud on this.
Which brings me back to the superstar of the left Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She will be the United States Congressperson come January 2019. Republicans in her district are as rare as common sense in her talking points.
What does that mean?
We have a soon to be elected official of a house district and a member of the democratic party that believes we need to fight an imaginary foe like we fought a real one. The Nazis in World War II invaded a dozen countries and were responsible for murdering tens of millions of people, including the event that Ocasio-Cortez has probably never read much on, the Holocaust.
This stream of thought, verbal spewing that people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez engage in is amusing when gurgled at a college campus but downright frightening when spoken by (soon to be) elected official.
On the bright side, I imagine that Representative Hank Johnson will soon be relieved that he won’t be the person holding the title of saying the dumbest thing ever by an elected official. Rep. Hank Johnson: Guam could ‘tip over and capsize’
God help us all.
