Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is over. Not that it was going anywhere fast, after failing a Senate vote with ZERO votes in favor.
This week, the Washington Post ran a profile on AOC’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, opening with a meeting he had with Sam Ricketts, climate director for Governor Jay Inslee of Washington. Inslee is running for president with a platform largely centered on climate change.
At that meeting, Chakrabarti straight up admitted that the Green New Deal is about forcing socialism on the masses:
Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this starting 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.”
Whoa. Points for honesty, I guess?
In other news, a video recently surfaced of Chakrabarti wearing a t-shirt depicting a Nazi collaborator:
Move along, nothing to see here.
