AOC Posts Bizarre ‘Video From The Future’ Claiming We Only Have 12 Years to Live

The video offered more fear mongering about the world ending without the Green New Deal.

AOC Fantasy Green New Deal Video

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez partnered with The Intercept to release a truly bizarre “video from the future” in which Ocasio-Cortez discussed how the United States came to accept the necessity of the Green New Deal and saved the planet from certain doom.

The video, titled “Art of the Green New Deal: A Message From the Future With AOC”, features Ocasio-Cortez narrating an artistic rendition of the United States. It begins with Ocasio-Cortez bragging about being part of the “most diverse” Congress in the history of the country, and goes on to explain the horrible danger the world found itself in when she was elected.

“We knew that we needed to save the planet, and taht we had all the technology to do it,” narrated Ocasio-Cortez. “But people were scared.”

She went on to place the blame for climate change on corporations and politicians who, in spite of what Ocasio-Cortez says is the obvious scientific understanding that climate change will destroy the world, “kept digging and mining, drilling, and racking like there was no tomorrow.”

“Entire species will never get back, natural wonders gone forever,” Ocasio-Cortez lamented.

She went on to again reference the absurd idea that the world has only 12 years left to address climate change by cutting carbon emissions in half.

“The leading climate scientists declared another emergency,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “They told us we had 12 years left to cut our emissions in half, or hundreds of millions of people would be more likely to face food and water shortages, poverty, and death.”

“12 years to change everything.”

The video then went on to fantasize about the “decade of the Green New Deal,” in which everyone magically started to agree with Ocasio-Cortez, and saved the planet from certain doom.

According to Ocasio-Cortez’s “message from the future,” she went on to inspire more diverse individuals to run for Congress, and ultimately saved the world, like some sort of Captain Planet superhero cartoon.

Of course, Ocasio-Cortez’s video has little basis in fact.

Even if viewers assume everything in the video to be true, Ocasio-Cortez’s fantasy video does not mention the massive pollution generated by China and India whatsoever, proving it is just a fear-mongering fantasy.

While the United States is a major polluter, in 2018 China produced more pollution than the United States and the European Union combined.

Meanwhile, while air quality in the West continues to improve, India has become the most polluted country on the planet, with 11 of the 12 worst polluted cities located in India according to the World Health Organization.

Ocasio-Cortez’s video is ultimately little more than a cute cartoon meant to scare those who are naive and foolhardy enough to believe climate change poses a serious threat, and that the United States can fix the problem with no help from the global community, especially countries which have shown little to no interest in controlling their carbon emissions.

City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”

There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.

Published

on

The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”

“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.

Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.

The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.

Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”

Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.

Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
