AOC Is Super Thrilled To Release Her (Soviet Style) Green New Deal Art Work

Something is missing from her tweet-storm on the subject

She loves having the monorails, eh?

AOC accused of Soviet-style propaganda with Green New Deal ‘art series’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., received another round of Twitter backlash on Friday after debuting a new effort to push her massive environmental and climate change proposal, the “Green New Deal.”

“Surprise! I am thrilled to announce the launch of our #GreenNewDeal art series with custom Bronx & Queens GND posters,” she tweeted. Her tweet included posters for two of New York City’s boroughs but the ambitious congresswoman plans to place “GND” art around the country.

She plans to release the art during a “Nature Day” event on Saturday, although it’s safe to assume many of her critics won’t attend.

She says, though

And, of course, people are defending this

(City Lab) According to a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez, the posters were designed by the New York firm Tandem, the firm behind the congresswoman’s election campaign.

If the posters seem at first glance to have a retro vibe, you’re not wrong, as the congresswoman confirmed in a follow-up tweet. The chunky all-caps type, the emphasis on places of natural beauty, and even the color palettes are intended to evoke posters produced nearly a century ago by a singular federal program in American history: the Federal Art Project, an office of the New Deal-era Works Progress Administration. (The program survived the termination of the WPA for a few years within a new agency, the Federal Works Administration.)There are two things missing in this issue. No one is asking whether the money for the sale of the art will be used for her re-election campaign.

Second, no on in the media is asking why she won’t demand a vote on her #GreenNewDeal. It’s been over six months since it was introduced, yet, there has been no vote on it in the House. She yammers about it a lot. But, even though it is just a resolution, she won’t demand that vote, and, remember, freaked out when the Senate voted on it. It almost seems like this is just a mule fritters issue meant to patronize the hardcore, unhinged Democratic Party base, and whip them up to get them to vote (and donate money to her).
