Word Salad: AOC Says Growing Cauliflower Is Basically Raaaaacism Or Something

This is not from the Babylon Bee

What’s up with the OK symbol? Isn’t that all about White Power now? Anyhow, from the link

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., explained Sunday that a “core component” of her Green New Deal legislation is ending “colonial” attitudes that dominate community gardens.

“What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” the freshman congresswoman said in an Instagram video while exploring a Bronx community garden.

“So that’s really how you do it right. That is such a core component of the Green New Deal is having all of these projects make sense in a cultural context, and it’s an area that we get the most pushback on because people say, ‘Why do you need to do that? That’s too hard,’” Ocasio-Cortez said in another Instagram video of her walking the streets of New York after leaving the community garden.

“But when you really think about it — when someone says that it’s ‘too hard’ to do a green space that grows Yucca instead of, I don’t know, cauliflower or something — what you’re doing is that you’re taking a colonial approach to environmentalism, and that is why a lot of communities of color get resistant to certain environmentalist movements because they come with the colonial lens on them,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

See, only certain gardening is Allowed. Or you’re a racist colonizer like it’s 1700.

    The cauliflower I grow hates nobody and never says anything stupid.
    I place it above AOC in the hierarchy of living things.

    She gets a 4 ft by 4 ft plot; just how much can she grow there?

    She’s just achingly stupid. She probably thinks if she throws around generic terms like colonialism, hegemony, sustainability, etc. that people will think she knows what she’s talking about; just makes her sound like a moronic poseur.
