AOC, Who Won’t Force Vote On Green New Deal, Compares It To Civil Rights Fight

Seriously, if this is so darned important, why is she not out there demanding a vote on it daily? Why is she not slamming Nancy Pelosi for refusing a floor vote? Why did she throw a fit when the Senate voted on it, and not take the 43 Democrats who voted “present” to task?

Ocasio-Cortez To Critics Of Green New Deal: “I Pity You For Your Role In History Right Now”

On Instagram Live Wednesday night, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke to critics who laugh and make jokes about her often-repeated statement that “we have twelve years left to cut emissions by at least 50%” to stop the most devastating effects of climate change.

“For everyone who wants to make a joke about that, you may laugh, but your grandkids will not,” she warned. “So, understand that the internet documents everything.”

So, understand that the internet documents everything.

You know, you want to look about, you want to talk about looking at the back of history, looking backward?

You look back and you open history books on the civil rights movement, and you see those folks who are protesting against the ability for African-Americans and black Americans to have the right to vote, and they would hold up these bigoted signs, and they would hold up signs that said things like ‘what about white rights?’ and all of this stuff, in the 1950s, 1960s.

So, if it is that important, why not demand a vote? If it’s so important, then why is she making this proclamation while munching on popcorn, drinking wine, and putting together a piece of furniture from IKEA (and having no screwdriver)?

She continues

So just know that in the present day there a lot of people who hide the fact that their families and that their grandparents fought against principles of equal rights in the United States. Not 100 years ago, not 80 years ago, but in this generation’s lifetime.

So just know that while a lot of people can hide that their grandparents did that in the civil rights movement, you should also know that the internet documents everything. And your grandchildren will not be able to hide the fact that you fought against acknowledging and taking bold action against climate change.

And for those of you who are trying to mock and delay this moment, I mean, I just feel bad for you. I pity you for your role in history right now.

First, it was mostly Democrats who fought against the Civil Rights legislation, who lionized a former high ranking KKK member in the Senate, and then turned around and found a way to get the black vote while keeping blacks down in poverty in inner cities.

Second, if she won’t demand that the GND be given a vote and implemented, then she is what she calls a climate delayer, and she should pity herself. Or, perhaps she was just drunk and exhausted from doing minor manual labor.

    Direct question to Porter Good:

    Which major US political party has employed what is known as the “Southern Strategy” since the 1960s?

    Note that the “Southern Strategy” is an electoral strategy to increase political support among white voters in the South by appealing to racism against African Americans.

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Teach typed: “…it was mostly Democrats who fought against the Civil Rights legislation”

    It was always conservatives, irrespective of party, who fought against civil rights. It’s always conservatives who fight civil rights. For Blacks, for women, for LGBT, for Muslims, for voters…

    Conservatives are defined by their favoritism of rich, white, Christian males.

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    It seems that Representative Ocasio-Cortez frightens older white men (i.e., the GOP and their minions).

    Young, intelligent, ambitious, bold, not a old white man, genuinely self-confident (not the fake bluster of a Trump), unafraid, socially conscious… all characteristics that conservative white men find offensive in a woman. “Woman should be stared at, not heard.”

    • Bill Chunko says:

      No Elwood, it’s not conservatives that resist civil rights. And I’m not sure what that says about you if you think she’s intelligent.

        It’s says everything. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Sorry Bill, but it IS conservatives who oppose civil rights. Why would you even bother to deny that? Were those white liberals in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana lynching Black men and burning churches? Were those white liberals carrying torches and shouting “Jews won’t replace us!” in Charlottesville. Liberalization of rights marches over conservativism – it’s slow but inevitable.

        Do you favor marriage equality?

        Do you believe alleged criminals have “too many” rights or protections?

        Should felons who’ve completed their debt to society be allowed to vote?

        In general, conservatives believe they have the right to do as they please at all times, including having whatever weapons they think they need to protect themselves from Blacks and Browns.

        Rep Ocasio-Cortez is intelligent enough to humiliate Republicans on a daily basis.

          How many years ago was that? And it’s funny you’re still banging Charlottesville.

          Were those white liberals in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana lynching Black men and burning churches?

          You do know most of that was a 100 years ago when Woody Wilson (y’know, the guy who lurved Birth Of A Nation?) was Preezy. And those were all Democrats doing that to Rs.

          Should felons who’ve completed their debt to society be allowed to vote?

          Which is what, exactly, of course they do, and be careful of that for which you wish, they’re all registering R.

          Rep Ocasio-Cortez is intelligent enough to humiliate Republicans on a daily basis.

          Seems like the only people she humiliates are Demos in general and herself in particular, and it’s the Lefties who believe they have the right to do as they please at all times, including having whatever weapons they think they need to protect themselves from Blacks and Browns.

          Those DC and Hollyweird entourages aren’t carrying Super-Soakers.

          • Bill Bear says:

            It’s hilarious that formwiz wants to forget Charlottesville — where one of his own committed murder.

    • formwiz says:

      Then why do sites like Instapundit call her the gift that keeps on giving?

      Young, intelligent, ambitious, bold, not a old white man, genuinely self-confident (not the fake bluster of a Trump), unafraid, socially conscious… all characteristics that conservative white men find offensive in a woman

      We all loved Maggie Thatcher, who was all that and a bag of chips. And Occasional Cortex is the one with the fake (I’m the boss) bluster.

      Trump usually gets what he goes after.
