During a town hall event Friday with Girls Who Code, the increasingly radical New York Democrat dismissed criticism of her widely panned “Green New Deal” on the basis that she’s the boss.
“You know what? I don’t care anymore. I don’t care anymore, because again, I’m at least trying, and they’re not. So the power is in the person who’s trying, regardless of the success. If you’re trying, you’ve got all the power, you’re driving the agenda, you’re doing all this stuff.”
“So people are like oh it’s unrealistic, oh it’s vague, oh it doesn’t address this little, minute thing. And I’m like you try, you do it. Because you’re not. So until you do it, I’m the boss. How about that?”
She was lying. Sen. Dianne Feinstein has released her own climate change proposal that’s far less ambitious but significantly more realistic. So the idea that nobody else is trying to solve the problem is another lie. AOC has thus far ignored the proposal and doubled down on her “I’m the boss” rhetoric.
“If you don’t like the #GreenNewDeal, then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis. Until then, we’re in charge — and you’re just shouting from the cheap seats,” she tweeted later Friday evening.
Yup. If you don’t like the #GreenNewDeal, then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis.
Until then, we’re in charge – and you’re just shouting from the cheap seats. https://t.co/h3KSJhHqDN

So to recap, she’s the boss and anyone who disagrees with her radical and unrealistic agenda is a poor schlub sitting in “the cheap seats.” Isn’t this a form of poverty shaming?
It’s a sign of arrogance, at the very least, as noted by outspoken Hollywood actor James Woods. Some believe her rhetoric is also a sign that she’s a “wannabe dictator.”
So, you may have missed this, but the way it works in America is YOU work for US. The last time somebody told Americans to sit down and shut up was 1776. If you ever learn to read, look it up. You are not only a idiot, you’re an arrogant idiot, and there is nothing more dangerous https://t.co/5Hn8IoHFn8

@AOC as no one is surprised at the idiotic statements that come out of your mouth anymore, and no one expects you to be able to learn government, but it’s called a democracy. Big word I know. You are a wanna be dictator. Another big word. Now take a Tylenol, and go away.

Power corrupts everyone.
Before elected, @AOC has always said she’s better than every corrupt politician, but the moment she gets a little bit of power she’s already acting like a wannabe dictator.
LOL @ these clueless socialists.

Socialist turned dictator within a few short months of acquiring power.. Hmm where have I seen this before?

Maduro’s army shoot unarmed civilian protesters yesterday, again behind every socialist is a disguised dictator.
You are not in charge you are a public servant, We the People of the United States, are in charge.

If she is talking like this now imagine how she would behave if she is able to take away our guns. Remember everyone that socialist is just a Communist who simply doesn’t have the power to take everything you have at gun point yet. Behind every socialist is a disguised dictator.

Just to be clear, AOC was elected into office by 110,318 residents of New York’s 14th congressional district.
Yet despite representing just a tiny sliver of America, Ocasio-Cortez thinks she and she alone can resolve America’s alleged climate change crisis, all via her GND, which as a reminder calls for banning air travel, combustion-engine vehicles, nuclear energy, fossil fuel energy, meat, cow farts, etc.
Worse, the plan calls for transforming America into a full-fledged socialist state replete with free education, free healthcare, free housing and even free money for those who choose to not work.
Her plan is so overloaded with “weird identitarian socialist bullshit,” as far-left activist and journalist Tim Pool describes it, that even veritable Democrats like him can’t stand it.
“I’m all for environmentalism, I am all for social policy, and I made a video defending the ‘Green New Deal’ before it was published. Why? Because the idea of a massive overhaul — and yes, an increase in government programs — to revolutionize the energy sector and do better for the planet sounds like a badass f–king idea,” he said in a YouTube podcast Saturday.
“The problem is when they publish the ‘Green New Deal,’ they promise to pay people who are unwilling to work. … The second page talks about racial inequality, racial inequity, gender pay gaps, things that have absolutely nothing to do with anything.”
“The factsheet they release talked more about universal health care and education than it did for an actual ‘Green New Deal.’ These people are trying to emotionally manipulate us using fear
to pass things totally unrelated to environmentalism,” he added.
Exactly. As many have noted on social media, it’s as if AOC’s “Green New Deal” is nothing but a Trojan horse designed to transform America into the Communist/socialist “utopia”:
Trojan horse for socialism

You aren’t in charge Sandy, except being the king of the fools. Green New Deal is nothing but a socialist Trojan horse that would completely destroy the US economy. If it wasn’t for Pelosi wanting to torpedo Crowely, you be periscoping making Mac and cheese to like 4 people.

These morons believe all climate change crap hook line a sinker. Yet give CHINA a pass. The GND is a Trojan horse to further push the socialist agenda. It’s an emotional issue to them. That’s why Soros is backing it.

Except as renowned philosopher Ayn Rand once noted, there’s no such thing as a Communist/socialist utopia. There are all Communist/socialist hellholes.
