Brave, Brave Sir Spartacus Compares Green New Deal To Fighting WWII Nazis

If you haven’t gotten enough of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez being silly on the Green New Deal, here’s Cory Booker

(Daily Caller) Democratic Sen. Cory Booker appeared to compare adopting the so-called Green New Deal with fighting the Nazi regime.

“Our planet is in peril, and we need to be bold,” Booker said at a Friday campaign event in Iowa. There are a lot of people who are critical of the deal. Critics claim “it’s too impractical, and it’s too expensive.”

“And when the planet has been in peril in the past, who came forward to save Earth … from the scourge of Nazis and totalitarian regimes?” Booker asked rhetorically. “We came forward.”

“We came forward with the Marshal Plan,” he added, referring to a U.S. program concocted during the 1940s to rebuild parts of German and other European countries bombed out during World War II.

The GND, which was introduced Thursday by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, calls for a “10-year national mobilizations” toward a series of goals aimed at fighting global warming. A separate fact sheet published online claims the plan would “mobilize every aspect of American society on a scale not seen since World War 2.”

Of course, need it be said that the threat from the Nazis was real? Further, that the plans to both fight the Nazis and rebuild Europe were not based on “unicorn farts and rainbow stew”, but things that were actually in the realm of reality?

James Delingpole notes of the GND

Not everyone who believes in man-made climate change is a full on Commie. Some are merely useful idiots. But whatever reason people may have for supporting the scam – greed, stupidity, virtue-signalling, idiot leftist teachers – the net result is the same: bigger government, higher taxes, more regulation, lower standards of living. Exactly like you’d get under communism, in fact.

So color me completely unshocked by the Green New Deal. It looks like a revamped Communist Manifesto because that’s exactly what it is.

If implemented, the size of government would increase to levels never before seen in a Western economy. The state’s control of everything from wage levels to how businesses are run to your personal freedoms would be total. There’s no mention of gulags or political prisoners or secret police but of course those would inevitably follow because how else would the state have a hope of enforcing measures which freedom loving Americans would naturally resist?

This is what I’ve been saying for well over a decade, and a major reason why I switched from being a Believer in anthropogenic global warming/climate change. Everything seemed to be about more and bigger government with more powers and more taxes/fees. How much in the way of fossil fuels will Brave Sir Spartacus used during his campaign?

    79 percent of the USA liked the SOTU. Stuff like this and Michael Moore and Moveon.org and George Soros are destroying the democratic party. You can see it in Nancy Pelosi’s eyes. People all through their party are talking about it. YouTube is lit up with those guys who love to do their own news and commentary and get paid by youtube are talking about it.

    Everyone is aghast at the direction the party has taken. Yet a recent poll only 19 percent of democrats claim to be progressive. Thats 19 percent of 37 or so percent of the party. Yet it is this 19 percent who has taken the party so far left it might never recover.

    In fact I predict it will never recover and now the buzz on YouTube is a third party is finally in the wind consisting of Repubs, Dems and independents who like what the center has to offer. While they might never elect a president they certainly will be the deciding vote in every bill ever passed in the house and senate.

    Oh wait. Do they actually pass any of those anymore?

    I am all for a third party if it pulls equally from left and right and is a legitimate party of centrists and moderates to bring some stability to this ff’ed up nation right now.

      It was a good performance, and he didn’t swerve from his teleprompter. Of course it was mostly lies, but teleprompter trump is an accomplished liar.

      Americans are desperate for trump to act even a little like a president.

        Harvey yet again confuses The Donald with Zippy.

        But it’s interesting to note he had the Ladies of the Invisible Empire cheering him (note the initials). Cordelia can’t stand the idea Americans reject his commie platform 3 – 1.

        Gonna be a long slog.
