Comrade De Blasio Trolled While Pimping His Green New Deal, AOC Forgets She Isn’t Demanding A Vote On Hers

Monday was Green New Deal day or something. In NYC we had really, really rich guy showing that this really is all about politics, and getting trolled

De Blasio event to attack Trump on climate change turns into spectacle

An event designed to capture national attention for Mayor Bill de Blasio’s environmental record turned into a spectacle Monday, days before he’s expected to announce his decision on a White House run.

The news conference, held in the lobby of Trump Tower, was designed to put the president “on notice,” de Blasio said, for the pollution emitted by Trump’s buildings. But the event, moved inside at the last minute due to rain, was more of a circus than a rally. Much of the mayor’s roughly eight-minute speech was drowned out by music played at curiously high volumes in the lobby, protesters shouting, “You suck,” among other profanities, and several people riding the escalators behind the mayor, toting signs that read “Trump 2020” and “Worst Mayor Ever.”

The din was so loud, de Blasio had to leave his lectern and request reporters walk forward just so he could hear their questions.

Comrade Bill decided that it was a good idea to make Trump and Trump Tower the face of his Green New Deal attacks, and when even Politico notices the politics involved, you can tell this is all about politics, not “the environment.”

That message was somewhat blunted when the mayor was unable to name any other landlords with high-emissions buildings and when it was revealed de Blasio had been driven to the event — a sore spot for a mayor who has been criticized for regularly riding a gas-guzzling SUV to his local gym.

So, yeah, this is all politics. Just like the majority of the ‘climate change’ movement. And then we have Squeeky

Ocasio-Cortez chides Dems over lack of Green New Deal support

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told a packed room of climate change activists at an event which also featured Sen. Bernie Sanders that voting Democrat isn’t enough if they want to pass a Green New Deal.

“I am not here to tell you that all Democrats are good and all Republicans are bad and that if you simply elect someone with a ‘D’ next to their name that our problems will be solved,” the Bronx congresswoman at a Washington, D.C. event for the Sunrise Movement.

“Because I’ve been in that chamber, I’ve been told by people on both sides of the aisle that we need to frack more that we need to build more pipelines both sides of the aisle,” she continued. (snip)

“And I will be damned if the same politicians who refuse to act then are going to try and come back today and say we need a middle-of-the-road approach to save our lives,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “That is too much for me.”

Yet, she refuses to demand a vote on her GND resolution in the House, had a hissy fit over the vote in the Senate, and has even said that “it’s messaging focused and was never meant to be passed”.

    Should we take her ranting “literally” this time?

    For the 2nd day in a row when I turn on the morning news they run a story about scientists saying that “CO2 has reached the highest level in 800,000 years and temperatures are expected to rise if immediate action is not take by the world’s governments”. The big lie is that all through the story they run background video of smelters belching smoke, power plants emitting dark water vapor at sunset, smoke or steam blocking the sun, cars in a smoggy city, a glacier calving, small plants dying in the field, a glaring hot sun…

    LOL, immediately followed by a weather report saying that we are getting what is “basically a winter storm” this week and it will “hit hard” on Thursday morning. Then they put up a graphic that shows 0.5″ of rain is predicted

    I wonder if even one of them goes home to their 4th spouse and says “they keep making me read lies and contradictions and bullshit on camera!”

      They may not know they are lies. At the very least, they are “lies for a good cause”.
