As Absurd as it is, We Must Take This “Green New Deal” Very Seriously
DB Daily Updates, Feb 8, 2019, David Blackmon   
 
Now that we’ve all had a chance to read Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” and recover from our hysterical laughter at the utter absurdity of it all…: – Make no mistake about it – this “Green New Deal”, as ridiculous and childishly-written as its talking points document is, represents a deadly serious threat to our nation’s future. Deadly serious.

The nation’s modern history is filled with example after example of the political left being laughed out of the room when rolling out similarly idiotic proposals, only to ultimately see those very same proposals be enacted into law years later, after our education system and fake news media had brainwashed another generation of children and young adults to believe it’s just a peachy idea. The best example is nationalized healthcare: The Pantsuit Princess was the target of harsh ridicule from all parts of society when she rolled out her byzantine plan for a government takeover of 1/7th of the national economy in 1993-94. But 16 short years later, America’s Worst Mistake – Barack Hussein Obama – signed a very similar plan into law.

Twenty years ago, virtually no one believed we’d ever see young people with male genitals and musculature be allowed to steal athletics trophies from young girls, but today that is happening all over the nation, and anyone who speaks up in defense of the young girls is demonized by the news media and Democrat politicians. Just a decade ago, those who predicted that we’d soon be seeing “women’s groups” like NOW remain studiously silent as radical Muslims were allowed by state and local governments to practice Sharia Law and female genital mutilation were ridiculed as being alarmist and “racist”. But today that is happening in many parts of the country with the full approval and sanction of the Democrat Party and these “women’s groups”.

Just a handful of years ago, anyone who predicted that a Democrat Speaker of the House would refuse to hold a vote on a pro-Israel congressional resolution for fear of offending the large and growing anti-Semitic segment of her caucus would have been laughed out of the room. But that is happening right now, in real time.

So if you think the Democrats aren’t deadly serious about this “Green New Deal,” you should back up and think again. An old, 43-year veteran of congress like Ed Markey didn’t sign on as AOC’s Straw Man (“if I only had a brain”) for her walk down the fake environmental Yellow Brick Road just for fun.

And be prepared for this:  Just about anything that comes out of Pelosi's climate committee will appear rational and reasonable in comparison to AOC's.

If all we do is laugh, we will lose once again.

I agree with this. As laughable as all this is, if the response to her kooky ideas is to laugh at them with no intellectual opposition, they could start to sound reasonable to the public.

All of this can be defeated. That’s why the focus should be on her wacky ideas and not on her expensive clothes
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

All the rules and laws, love of the constitution, free speech etc. that liberals claimed to love are now racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.
There are few liberals left in the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party is now committed towards full leftism.
A number of Democrat liberals of the past actually did love their country and believe in the idea of meritocracy.  That's all done with them. Democrats now are either leftists committed to the destruction of the country or parasites.  Of course, some are both.
Now it's all about identity groups and power.   White males are now to be detested and all their power taken away.
In short, the Democratic Party, my old party, is the enemy of everything that made America great.
They cannot be reasoned with.  They are to be destroyed.  Not by killing them physically, but by killing their anti-American ideas/programs.
 Hopefully, we can avoid a shooting war.

From the article:
"Now that we’ve all had a chance to read Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” and recover from our hysterical laughter at the utter absurdity of it all…: – Make no mistake about it – this “Green New Deal”, as ridiculous and childishly-written as its talking points document is, represents a deadly serious threat to our nation’s future. Deadly serious."

Indeed.

The democrat-communist party will soon become as much of a threat to the American people as was the Khmer Rouge to Cambodians.

Look what they did, trying to take that country "back to the year zero".

And, like the Khmer Rouge, the democrat-communists won't care how many skulls are left piled up in their wake to create utopia in the USA...

I see two possibilities for America's future.
One is a peaceful "separation" of the [former] Union into several autonomous nations or regions.

But if the leftists/communists won't agree to that, there WILL be a second civil war. Not sure yet whether we are at the modern equivalent of "where the nation was" in 1840, 1850, or 1860 yet. But... it's coming.

Folks, tell me:
What do you foresee that could result in the left abandoning its rush towards communism, and finding its way back to a reconciliation of values with traditional-minded Americans...?

Nothing will stop the left pursuant to its ends.

The only thing that will stop it is changing the will of the people. The left will still be the left - the 30% or so that have historically embraced it - It just will lose the power to enact change.

For those of y'all who can't stand us preaching Principled Conservatism, that is why we do -  And why the various types of appeasement seeking a more 'compassionate' or popular view will not work. There is no sliding scale.
