I’ve often said that woke radical progressives can spin literally anything as racist or resulting from racism.
The latest target of woke radical progressive lunacy is the weather. Racism is now influencing the weather.
I wish I was joking.
AOC just gave a briefing in which she said,
“The trampling of indigenous rights is a cause of climate change. The trampling of racial justice is a cause of climate change.”
AOC: “The trampling of indigenous rights is a cause of climate change. The trampling of racial justice is a cause of climate change.”

It’s kind of hard to follow after that bizarre statement, but she goes on to try to explain something about how some people are allowing other people to deny certain people the right to health care and the right to housing. And apparently that’s contributing to climate change. It was almost like she just strung together a bunch of buzz words into a semi-coherent sentence and simply hoped no one would challenge it because it was packed with so many sensitive and politically-charged buzz words.
Does she think that making everything about equity or equality of outcome will impact climate change? If so, she fits right in with Biden’s climate team, who say that “systemic racism” is partially to blame for global climate change.
