COMMENTARY OF THE DAY

AOC is an idiot and so are those who voted for her. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now blaming “racial injustice” for the climate crisis. “The climate crisis is a crisis born of injustice, and it is a crisis born of the pursuit of profit at any and all human and ecological cost,” the New York Democrat said Tuesday as she again pushed the Green New Deal. “Which means that we must recognize in legislation that the trampling of indigenous rights is a cause of climate change, that the trampling of racial justice is a cause of climate change,” she insisted to clapping.
“Because we are allowing people … to deny ourselves human rights and deny people the right to health care, the right to housing and education,” AOC said at the press conference in front of the Capitol. A clip of her comments had been viewed more than 750,000 times by Wednesday after being shared on Twitter by Mike Berg, the deputy director of communications for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).
“Truly impressive woke word salad here,” commented Logan Hall of the right-wing Daily Caller, as others joked about other possible ills the lawmaker could go on to blame for climate change. One commentator even suggested that AOC’s “logic” could be used to ultimately even blame her for the climate, one person quipped, “She certainly generates a lot of hot air.”
