Socialist Barbie humiliated twice-over on Green New Deal

Caption: God, guns and velociraptors made America great.

It?s not been a good couple of weeks for ?Socialist Barbie? Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez. While the former rich-kid-turned-bartender coasted into Congress on a wave of fawning press coverage, her self-evident dunderheadedness has seen even much of her left-media cheer-squad turn away in embarrassment. Whether it?s confusing the colours on electoral maps or asserting that the government debt can be erased by printing more money, AOC continues to make a fool of herself.

The idiotic ?Green New Deal? is the capstone of her self-parodying stupidity. AOC first released, to put it kindly, wildly utopian manifesto on the internet, hurriedly took it down, then denied it had ever been there in the first place. Meanwhile, critics had a field day. The final humiliation came when Republicans forced the plan to a vote. Quote:

Sen. Mike Lee upset Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when he took to the Senate floor Tuesday and made an unorthodox case against the much-hyped Green New Deal proposal championed by the freshman congresswoman.

?Lee?s main point was that while his monologue might have been a bit silly, it wasn?t nearly as absurd as the ?unserious? proposals contained in the Green New Deal, such as the elimination of all air travel.

?This is of course a picture of former president Ronald Reagan, naturally firing a machine gun while riding on the back of a dinosaur,? Lee said. ?You?ll notice a couple of important features here: first of all, the rocket launcher strapped to President Reagan?s back, and then the stirring, unmistakeable patriotism of the velociraptor holding up a tattered American flag, a symbol of all it means to be an American.?

??In a future without air travel, how are we supposed to get around the vast expanses of, say, Alaska, during the winter,? Lee asks. ?I?ll tell you how. Tauntauns, Mr. President?Not only are Tauntauns carbon-neutral, but according to a report a long time ago and issued far, far away, they may even be fully recyclable and usable for their warmth on a cold night.?

Next Lee tackled the problem of how citizens of Hawaii would get to the mainland in a future with no air travel. His tongue-in-cheek solution? Aquaman riding a fish. End of quote.

Naturally, Ocasio-Cortez was not amused at being so mercilessly mocked. But worse was to come: not a single one of her Democrat colleagues put up their hand in favour of the plan. Quote:

In a 57-0 vote Tuesday, the Senate rejected the much-hyped Green New Deal proposal, which has been touted heavily by progressive democrats, most notably Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Notably, 43 democrats declined to go on record as voting ?yes? for the plan, instead voting ?present? in accordance with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer?s strategy. End of quote.

Schumer?s ?strategy? is basically not to let something as trivial as democracy get in the way of the Democrats? steady march to the looney left. Quote:

Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming said then that the main motivation was to call out Democratic presidential wannabes, saying it?s important ?to get people on record as to how much they really want to take this country in a hard left direction.?

Ocasio-Cortez, likely the most vocal proponent of the controversial plan, expressed outrage Saturday at the GOP?s plan to hold a vote on the climate-change proposal?Conservatives on social media found it strange that Ocasio-Cortez appeared to be agitated that the legislation she supports was being voted on. End of quote.

Apparently the ?Democratic? in ?Democratic Socialist? doesn?t mean actual democracy.
