It’s funny how liberal leaders present to the world a face that’s not bent on the complete collapse of any and all societal order and structure, mere moments after they bared their chaos inducing canines for all to see. They pretend the world wasn’t watching and so continue to manifest, over and over again, their utter lunacy.
For instance, when “The oil industry took a massive nosedive on Monday amid the coronavirus pandemic,” as Jenni Taer of saraacarter.com reported, “and although it means American workers will likely lose their jobs, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, celebrated the move saying “you absolutely love to see it” on Twitter.”
Now had Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, kept that same loon energy she had when she decided to play to her even more insane base, (by sending out that crazy tweet), then perhaps she might have salvaged some credibility from the wreckage of her car-crash of an unforced political error. She could have even denied that she was referring to the oil nosedive.
But “Within minutes, however,” Taer wrote, AOC, “deleted the tweet and replaced it with a different message.” Confirming that those words were indeed meant to celebrate oil prices falling to the lowest they’ve ever been. Classic.
“This”, wrote AOC of the record fall in oil prices, in her now deleted tweet, “along with record low interest rates means it’s the right time for a worker-led, mass investment in green infrastructure to save our planet *cough*”
“Workers of the world, unite!” wouldn’t be out of place at all here.
And I know most conservative and even so-called conservative commentators have focused on the first line of her tweet. But the latter half of that tweet more than illustrates just how out of touch with reality AOC really is. It’s a frightening thing to ponder that she’s actually an elected official. (So much for the greatness of democracy).
So in the midst of a world health and economic crisis, AOC’s main priority is not only to celebrate the crash of an invaluable resource, but to see in that crash the perfect opportunity to issue a rallying cry to workers to lead “mass investment in green infrastructure to save our planet.” She even added a ‘cough’ expression at the end. (And who knows what that meant. Was it a shot at coronavirus victims, or conservative politicians, or just a mindless brag about how so-called green energy is far and away a superior alternative to oil? Who knows indeed.
The point is, it seems AOC never even considered how this affects the workers she’s so quick to call on ‘to save our planet’ through green investment, before sending out that tweet. What exactly will workers invest? Money? Well there’s less and less access to that, especially to workers, due to the impact of the coronavirus and now the record drop of oil prices. But at least they’d be honoured “to save our planet.” This really highlights just how privileged AOC is, if she cannot even fathom the plight of her own constituents.
But at least she revised the tweet, right?
Do you think this tweet is any less out of touch than the first one? “Now is the time to create millions of good jobs building out the infrastructure and clean energy necessary to save out planet for future generations.”
But what can you expect from someone who’s really an activist, disguised as a leader who cares about the poor.
