The Washington Times carries a piece written by Tammy Bruce that exposes the Democrats’ “Green New Deal” for what it is–a hoax targeting the liberal base, GenXers and progressives that is nothing more than an elaborate Get Out the Vote organizing effort:
Yet, courtesy of a letter being sent by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York to Democratic colleagues in the House of Representatives, we now know that there is no package of implementable ideas or policy. What they do have is a press release word salad of platitudes, slogans and talking points.Bloomberg reported on the letter, with a revealing headline: “Ocasio-Cortez begins to sketch out details of ‘Green New Deal.’ ” That confirms the thing Democrats, including Sens. Kamala D. Harris of California and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, have endorsed isn’t even formulated yet. As Winston Churchill might note, it’s a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. It would be more honest to call it the “Green New Hoax.”
Bloomberg’s first paragraph outlining Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s “blueprint” is at least honest: “Environmental legislation dubbed a ‘Green New Deal’ and championed by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has drawn widespread attention — despite the fact that no one really knows for sure what it is.”
No one knows, because it doesn’t exist.
It is well worth the time to read the entire piece.
