“Green New Deal” is a Trojan Horse for Socialism

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez death panels socialism greenFreshman Bronx congresswoman and self-described democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently announced her plan to enact a program to decarbonize the United States economy. Dubbed the Green New Deal, the radical plan would ban the use of all fossil fuels from the American manufacturing, agriculture, and electricity sectors by 2030.

Ocasio-Cortez has described the plan as a way to address climate change, however there’s more to the Green New Deal than its proposed energy provisions.

The Green New Deal includes a number of radical programs that have nothing to do with “green” energy, and everything to do with increasing the power and scope of the federal government. Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal calls for creating a federal jobs guarantee that would “assure a living wage job to every person who wants one,” and would form “basic income programs” with newly-imposed workplace requirements and wage standards. The proposal also includes single-payer health care and provisions to “mitigate deeply entrenched racial, regional and gender-based inequalities in income and wealth.”

Supporters of the plan have kept quiet about these hidden — and more costly — details, advertising its energy mandates alone. But while Ocasio-Cortez insists the purpose of the proposal is to reduce the global temperature and prevent a rising climate in the future, her real intentions are clear: the ultimate goal of the Green New Deal is to enact a series of radical redistributionist programs and impose socialism on the American people.

And how would these socialist programs be funded? Just like the Democrat-proposed Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, too, has an enormous price tag. Economists estimate that a guaranteed minimum income (just one part of the plan) of $12,000 a year would cost $3.8 trillion alone. Ocasio-Cortez has proposed a 70% tax rate on the rich, saying the wealthy should pay their “fair share.” Democrats have also introduced a national carbon tax in Congress to fund their socialist plan. According to the Congressional Budget Office, a $25 per ton carbon tax would be approximately a $1.1 trillion per year increase in taxes. If enacted, it’s clear the Green New Deal would cause mass inefficiencies in our economy, lead to soaring federal spending, doubled taxes, and a rising national debt.

If this weren’t enough, the Green New Deal would destroy individual liberty as we know it, allowing the government to meddle in every aspect of each American’s personal life. When you centralize control of the economy and the people who work in it, you destroy individual freedom and autonomy. Just look at North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela.

Simply put, Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is about socialism and government expansion, not the environment. Younger voters may be fooled by the congresswomen’s idealism and lofty promises, but those of us who have witnessed the collapse of other countries after adopting similar socialist plans already know that the Green New Deal is nothing but a raw deal for Americans.

This is what helped the NAZI and Communists to advance their agenda, a back to nature and naturalism program as wholesome living. Just a new incarnation of it with this proposal deal.

Thank you AMAC for publishing this great article.
BTW folks, we must always remember that famous statement by Vladimir Lenin:
“The goal of Socialism is Communism.”

This whole thing is nothing but spiritual warfare……Satanic warfare! The evil Socialists are blinded by their own corruption and have no intention of allowing anyone to resist them.
As it was stated many years ago, the communists will take over America without firing a shot because they’ll convert it from within.
Wake up America, you are about to lose your beloved country!

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) make tax & spend liberals appear conservative. I believe her ideas are dangerous to our economy, our democracy, and our society. Her positions could be simply a means to Political Power. Nutty Nancy Pelosi is a master at the Political Power Play. If the two of them could get their acts together and team up, they would be a formidable force. Watch out Conservatives and Republicans!

Don”t you wish this was an episode of the apprentice? Trump could just say “Your fired!” She would get a nice ride home in a limo and we could be rid of her!
Seems as though she has been receiving a steady diet of ignorance. Looks like it keeps her thin-not a lot of calories. It has been said that ignorance is bliss, but she doesn’t seem blissful enough. Did her ignorance need to be served with whipped cream?

Ms Ocasio-Cortez just spouts off about things she just doesn’t know! Global warming has been occurring for over millions of years and will continue to do so for as long as this earth remains Like all Democrats these days, she uses this scare tactic to cover up their real agenda. They want to make our county a Socialist form of government and take away our constitutional liberties.

Conservative media needs to give more exposure to scientists who have done research and have published articles which maintain that the Earth is entering into a global cooling period due to Sun cycles, and that climate change has little to do with man’s activities, but has been going on for millions of years, unaffected by mankind.

All of the above concerning the tax by OAC needs to be publicized completely as to what it actually is.

This millennial has no clue what she is talking about. This is exactly what the millennials and snowflakes have been indoctrinated and brainwashed to believe. They have absolutely no idea what has happened in other countries that similar policies have been implemented because they only watch communism supporting social media outlets so they have no knowledge how destructive this will be.

This person and her like, is a prime reason for the voting age to be elevated to 21 once again. Also the education system must be purged of people like her from K to College. I would fire very blinking one of these progressive/socialist/Commie rats. If they want to live in a Socialist country move to one and leave our Nation alone. I know fat chance of that happening.

The real ‘hidden agenda’ no one wants to talk about is a global socialized one nation no boundaries order … literally a United Nations, were the only accepted nationalism is to the United Nations. This is the long term agenda of progressive socialists. This concept is not possible in the minds of national and international leaders as long as the United States remains a sovereign nation. A nation for the people of the people and by the people. Every effort, therefore, as designed by progressive leftists is marginalize to irrelevance the traditions of the nation and ultimately have it implode from within. This for them is the perfect storm that opens the door to a world-wide united order. Sounds crazy, huh? It’s said that truth is stranger than fiction.

This plan sounds like 2 things. 1) France (how’s the government guaranteed jobs program working out for them?) 2) The strong and oppressive central government that our founding fathers were purposely trying to avoid.
Submitted in my personal capacity.

Our schools/colleges have been hijacked by the radical left teachers. This woman is a product of it. Socialism : Government control of your life and liberty. Socialism : you work and theGovernment takes all of your money and relocates it. Dr Patrick Michael has written excellent articles on the lack of global warming/climate change caused by man.

A ‘Trojan Horse’ is a sneak attack – a very bad gift for the uninformed. Ocasio-Cortez, unlike Obama and his ‘fundamental change’, did not hide her Agenda in cute slogans. She told people she volunteered with Bernie, a socialist. She talked socialism during her campaign. People found what she said funny, brought up counter arguments to her proposals. But she won, which means that all those who thought she was a non-starter did not come out and vote for her opponent! Cannot make the same mistake in 202. Defeat the lefties – socialist and communist.

Not only is she ignorant in the true sense of the world, she also has no common sense at all. If she has a degree in economics, our education system is worthless.
