The liberal left certainly isn’t afraid of a little hypocrisy, as proven by their constant and conniving diatribes, but this is absolutely ridiculous.
Freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been making a name for herself in strange ways, proving to be little more than a human gaffe machine. Her plight has been a terrible embarrassment for the democratic party over the course of the last few weeks, yet the left has chosen to give her another chance by backing her “Green New Deal” plan.
The only problem is that plan creates a terrier conundrum for the “do as I say” democrats.
But the elimination of air travel strikes particularly close to the homes of Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, and Kamala Harris – all of whom extensively used air travel, including private jets – throughout the years in office.
Harris, among the leading Democratic candidates in the 2020 race so far, has been an early backer of Ocasio-Cortez’s resolution to tackle climate change by radically transforming the country by rendering air travel obsolete, moving the U.S. to rely completely on renewable energy with net-zero emissions, and guaranteeing economic security even for people who are “unwilling” to work.
“I’m proud to co-sponsor @AOC and @EdMarkey’s Green New Deal. We must aggressively tackle climate change which poses an existential threat to our nation,” she tweeted, adding in that “The Green New Deal is a bold plan to shift our country to 100% clean and renewable energy.”
The bill itself is far too radical to have a chance at passing through the legislature, making this entire boondoggle ever the more embarrassing.
