All it took was 12 hours for AOC to change her tune on Green New Deal – she’ll make a fine swamp addition

Consistency is certainly not socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s strong suit.

Only hours after the Democrat starlet admitted in a radio interview that her Green New Deal will require “massive government intervention” to enact, she said the exact opposite on national TV.

“One way that the right does try to mischaracterize what we’re doing as though it’s like some kind of massive government takeover,” she complained Thursday evening to MSNBC host Chuck Todd.

“Uh, obviously what we’re trying to do is, well obviously it’s not that because what we’re trying to do is release the investments from the federal government to mobilize those resources across the country.”

Less than 12 hours earlier, she’d said the opposite to Steve Inskeep, the host of NPR’s “Morning Edition.”

Listen:

 

“As you know, congresswoman, one reason that people who are politically conservative are skeptical of efforts to combat climate change is that it sounds to them like it requires massive government intervention which they just don’t like. Are you prepared to put on the table that yes, they’re actually right, what this requires is massive government intervention?”  Inskeep asked her Thursday morning.

“It does,” the 29-year-old congresswoman replied. “It does. Yeah, I have no problem saying that.”

Wait, what … ?

While some have argued that a “massive government takeover” isn’t equivalent to “massive government intervention,” it’s a semantic point at best — one that discounts the facts.

Released Thursday afternoon, AOC’s New Green Deal calls for essentially redesigning America from top to bottom and creating a utopia where everybody is guaranteed a job (assuming they want one), in addition to free education, free healthcare, free housing, etc.

The radical plan also calls for eliminating combustion-engine vehicles (i.e., cars), airplanes, fossil fuel energy, nuclear energy, farting cows, meat and everything else that makes America great.

Now how do you suppose such lofty goals would be achieved? Via a tidal wave of government mandates that will skyrocket taxes, redistribute wealth and destroy whole industries, including but not limited to the fossil fuel industry and the automobile industry.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE MISSING …

No matter whether you call this a government takeover or government intervention, the point remains the same: Just like a Communist dictator, AOC wants to leverage the power of government to force her radical agenda on every American citizen and American business, as noted by social media:

Ocasio-Cortez’s authoritarian tendencies make sense given her tacit support of Venezuelan dictator and tyrant Nicolás Maduro, who’s been condemned by President Donald Trump and his counterparts in Canada, Israel and other civilized nations over his numerous human rights offenses.

“Our office is monitoring it closely. I think that, you know, the humanitarian crisis is extremely concerning but, you know, when we use non-Democratic means to determine leadership, that’s also concerning, as well,” she said late last month to The Daily Caller.

She made the remarks amid a growing crisis in Venzuela over the latest presidential election, which Maduro won allegedly via cheating and fraud.
