Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has proven she is all talk, no substance.
After winning a seat in Congress, this Democratic Socialist put forward a laughably bad proposal for our economy. The Green New Deal was so terrible, Democrats refused to touch it.
Now a top environmentalist is tearing into the proposal and AOC as well.
AOC represents everything wrong with liberals today. She is inexperienced, ignorant, unprofessional, and unequipped to lead. On top of that, she’s too proud to see it. Promising to secure paychecks for all and save the environment, she put forward the “Green New Deal.” This terrible proposal was so bad, even Democrats in the House refused to consult it when drafting new legislation.
Pundits from across the spectrum have mocked the Green New Deal. Its unrealistic proposals were so bad, even a child could have done better. It exposed AOC for being the fraud that she is. She has no understand of either our economy or environment. Plus, she refuses to admit her ideas are terrible.
Now things are getting worse for the one-term congresswoman. The co-founder of Greenpeace Patrick Moore ripped into AOC’s terrible Green New Deal, calling her a “pompous little twit.”
Patrick Moore, the co-founder of the environmentalist group Greenpeace, ripped into New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over the weekend as a “pompous little twit,” saying the Green New Deal plan she’s advocating is “completely crazy.”
“If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating,” Moore said in a tweet Saturday directed at Ocasio-Cortez. “You would bring about mass death.”

It’s pretty bad when one of the most-famous environmentalists in the world is slamming your “green” proposal. Moore help found Greenpeace, a group that is often considered radical in its pursuit of environmental protection.
Yet even he can see how insane, impractical, and disastrous AOC’s proposal is.
AOC’s plan is to ban the use of all fossil fuels, to go 100% renewable energy, and to get rid of airplanes. That’s right, she wants to get rid of airplanes. I guess we’ll have to hop a ship the next time we need to travel overseas. Though, I’m not sure wind-powered vessels will get us there quickly.
The Green New Deal also called for universal paychecks for everyone. Including those unable or unwilling to work. Yes, that phrase is actually in the proposal. She also demands healthcare for everyone—while significantly hampering our economy. Private industries will be taken over by the government. A national bank will be created that will plunder all our wealth.
It these kinds of asinine ideas that has led everyone to mock the Green New Deal. Yet despite titanic criticism of the proposal, AOC still stands by it. She refuses to acknowledge her deal is a stinking pile of horse manure. All this, while she gets exposed for her own hypocrisy.
[Moore] also referred to Ocasio-Cortez as a “garden-variety hypocrite,” in response to a New York Post story that said the Democrat frequently used gas-guzzling Uber and Lyft rides during her 2018 campaign instead of taking the subway station near her campaign office.
“You’re just a garden-variety hypocrite like the others. And you have ZERO expertise at any of the things you pretend to know,” Moore said. [Source: Fox News]
That kind of hypocrisy is pretty typical among liberals. Environmental activists like Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio go on and on about saving the earth. But they use private jets that guzzle fossil fuels, not to mention accrue massive energy bills on their multi-million-dollar houses.
AOC pretends to be a champion for social justice and environmental rights—yet she and her staff can’t even bother to use the subway. The subway, by the way, is a damn sight cleaner than Uber cars.
But like a typical politician, Cortez is ignoring the critisms made against her. She continues to push a radical, impractical, and terrible plan. A plan that would bankrupt our country, destroy our industry, ultimately (ironically) destroy the environment.
Remind me again why people voted for her?
