The Green New Deal, proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is always presented as being a solution to climate change. It’s framed as being related to the environment. That’s a lie. It’s true purpose has been well hidden, until now.
AOC’s chief of staff let the truth slip during a recent article in the Washington Post.
The Green New Deal is all about socialism.
Um, AOC’s Own Staff Is Undermining Her Green New Deal
Proponents of the Green New Deal have clearly given up. Although Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) introduced the legislation to great fanfare earlier this year, it’s radical demands weren’t particularly well received – even by members of her own party. Some, like Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), wondered how the restrictive air travel would work, particularly for her state of Hawaii. Others, like Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), were just plain confused by the text. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi couldn’t even remember the name.
Now, it seems Ocasio-Cortez’s staff is even backing away from it? The freshman lawmaker’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, recently admitted to Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s (D) climate director, Sam Ricketts, that helping the climate wasn’t even on their radar when they first introduced the measure, according to The Washington Post. Inslee, who’s currently running for president, has made climate change the biggest issue of his platform.

AOC's chief of staff has this to say on the Green New Deal: “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” https://t.co/nkN4GWSZZ5

Here’s the text from the Washington Post:
“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”
So basically, the political machine behind AOC is trying to introduce socialism based on a lie.
They’re cloaking this whole thing in the environment, while hiding their true goal.
These people do not have America’s best interests in mind.
