So, on January 7th of this year the Communist Party USA began touting what they called a "Green New Deal." One month later, on February 7th, freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released her "Green New Deal."
Now, you can try if you will to track the timeline of just exactly who was cribbing whose notes, but the simple fact is, the whole thing is thoroughly communistic in nature. Its obvious predicate is the notion that all things belong to the state.
If they want to tear down all the buildings, including those buildings you own, their assumption is that they have the right and authority to do so. If they want to kill all your cows, they can. If they want to ground all your airplanes, there is nothing to prevent them from doing so. If they want to force you to live in an undefended, unheated shack, shivering in the dark, and only give you a little rice to eat each day, they can.
Make no mistake: If these people are not stopped, and soon, that is exactly what they will do, too.
Sure, their ideas are stupid and off-the-wall. But communist ideas have always been stupid and off-the-wall. That didn't stop them from murdering and enslaving a large part of the population of the world in the last century though.
Don't simply laugh this stuff off, folks. It's deadly serious business.
