Once you see it once, you start seeing it everywhere:
New York City’s incoming socialist congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, says there will only be benefits, and no costs, to passing a raft of new climate change laws. In particular, she said, a new system of global warming governance will usher in “economic, social, and racial justice,” suggesting the federal government should nationalize technology the automaker Tesla developed following its receipt of tax subsidies.
“As a matter of fact, it’s not just possible that we will create jobs and economic activity by transitioning to renewable energy, but it’s inevitable that we are going to create jobs,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “It’s inevitable that we’re going to create industry, and it’s inevitable that we can use the transition to a hundred percent renewable energy as the vehicle to truly deliver and establish economic, social and racial justice in the United States of America.”
The comments came during a recent Bernie Sanders-hosted symposium on global warming.
The incoming congressman did not elaborate on how laws aimed at curbing global warming would create “economic, social, and racial justice.”
Ocasio-Cortez has likened her envisioned global warming programs to another New Deal, or as she calls it, a “Green New Deal.”
Ocasio-Cortez is an out-and-proud socialist and thus open about her agenda. When the former UN climate chiefs say that “We require deep transformations of our economies and societies” in order to deal with climate change, most people give them the benefit of the doubt because they see them as essentially impartial scientific and environmental public servants and not political activists. But it means exactly the same as what Ocasio-Cortez talks about – fighting climate change provides a convenient opportunity to refashion the world and achieve political objectives of statism: “we can use the transition to a hundred percent renewable energy as the vehicle to truly deliver and establish economic, social and racial justice in the United States of America”, i.e. socialism. Of course it’s not just the United States; climate change is a global issue that activists want to use to achieve global outcomes.
Beware of red wolf dressed in green sheep clothing. Though at least the wolf is increasingly open about its agenda and intentions and therefore easier to spot.
