In a speech in Charlottesville, Virginia on April 16, 2019, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke stood behind Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal and called for Americans to be prepared to make great sacrifices.
Just like during WW2.
O’Rourke said to the crowd of supporters, “One of the reasons I like Representative Ocasio-Cortez’s proposed Green New Deal is that it calls to mind another time in this country’s past when we faced an existential challenge. In that case, it was to our way of life to the Western democracies, to our allies in Europe, to our fellow Americans.”
The former Congressman continued, “In the midst of the Great Depression, this country was willing to sacrifice men and women all over the United States to make sure that we defeated Germany, and we won that war. And for the following 75 years that we made this world safe for democracy. The Green New Deal calls that sacrifice and service in scale, scale of commitment when it talks about the challenges that we face today.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal has made waves since it was rolled out in February. Now it appears to be embraced by the entire Democratic Party.
Newsweek reports that Ocasio-Cortez has “compared the Green New Deal to the national emergency facing the United States during World War II.”
Ocasio-Cortez herself said, “We’ve been here before. We’ve been here before with the Great Depression. We’ve been here before with World War II, even the Cold War.”
With Bernie Sanders hiring a known apologist of Venezuelan socialism in David Sirota as his speechwriter, Pete Buttigieg recently calling out capitalism’s supposed failures, and now the Green New Deal being embraced by Beto O’Rourke, the Democratic Party is officially going hard Left.
And from the looks of it, there’s no turning back.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
