The green monster

Editor:

For those people who worship at the altar of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and swoon over her Green New Deal, here are some facts to consider:

Fact: Cortez is a proud socialist and a soon-to-be communist. She believes that socialism is superior to capitalism. She is a former bartender, sudden climate expert and overnight congresswoman. Her ideas are so far-fetched and reckless that anyone in their right mind would recognize them as being no more realistic than flying pigs and unicorns.

Fact: Cortez is a proud mother of a monster child, the Green New Deal. The Green New Deal represents a full-blown Marxist approach to government control. It is essentially Soviet-level communism repackaged as environmental socialism. It calls for a 10-year “national mobilization” to achieve “net zero emissions.” This means a complete overhaul of all transportation systems, it proposes to fight so-called “climate change” by moving us off all fossil fuels and nuclear power. Cortez does not understand that a massive economy like the U.S. will never survive being powered by windmills and solar panels. The Green New Deal also requires rebuilding every home and building in the country to be energy efficient. The Green New Deal also ensures “economic security” for people “unwilling to work,” free college for all, guaranteed wages, universal health care, and a whole host of other freebies — all of which will cost tens of trillions of dollars, dollars America will never have.

Fact: Cortez knows nothing about economics even though she received a degree in economics from Boston University. Her proposal to pay for her monster plan is to “print more money” and to tax the working class at 70 percent.

Democrats hold up socialism as the shining light where all people are treated equally, but have they ever listened to those people who have suffered under it?

Since Democrats cherish abortions so much, perhaps Cortez will abort her monster child, the Green New Deal.
