Ocasio-Cortez: “Like, is it okay to still have children?”

What happened to my body, my choice?

From Fox News: Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said young people have to ask a “legitimate question” in the wake of climate change and mounting student loan debt: “Is it okay to still have children?”

In an Instagram Live video over the weekend, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., welcomed supporters into her kitchen—and gave a “special hello to my haters”—while she made chili and poured herself a glass of white wine.

“Our planet is going to face disaster if we don’t turn this ship around,” she said, as she chopped sweet potatoes. “And so it’s basically like, there is a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult and it does lead, I think young people, to have a legitimate question. Ya know, should—is it okay to still have children?

She continued: “Not just financially because people are graduating with 20, 30, 100 thousand dollars of student loan debt so they can’t even afford to have kids in the house, but there’s also just this basic moral question, like, what do we do?”

“And even if you don’t have kids, there are still children here in the world and we have a moral obligation to them to leave a better world to them.”

Ocasio-Cortez answered questions from viewers while she continued to prepare her meal. “What would Trump put in chili? BOLOGNA!” she quipped. “He would put bologna in chili. Both because I think that’s what his taste palate is developed to, and for the obvious reason.”

But one of the serious questions was about her signature proposal in the House- the Green New Deal.

The whole premise of the Green New Deal, is that we’re screwed on climate. I’m sorry to break it to you,” she said. “When it comes to climate in particular, we’re actually screwed. There is a global threat to the planet.

She added: “At this point, we don’t even have to prove it. Just walk outside in the winter in a lot of places, and its, either way worse than you’re used to, or way warmer than you’re used to.”

“Hurricanes, storms, wildfires,” she said. “We are dying now.”

While the resolution itself would do little because it is non-binding, it is the first time the policy proposal has been formally outlined in Congress.

“If we called a vote on the Green New Deal, tomorrow or Tuesday when I got back to D.C., and it passed, NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN,” she stressed, seemingly downplaying the impact should it be passed. “Literally, nothing would happen because it is a resolution. It is a statement. Be it resolved. It is us agreeing to a statement. Not any binding course of action.”

The resolution says “a new national social, industrial and economic mobilization on a scale not seen since World War II and the New Deal” is an opportunity to tackle systemic injustices toward minority groups, create millions of high-wage jobs and “provide unprecedented levels of prosperity and economic security for all people of the United States.”

Its proposals include “net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers;” job creation; healthcare for all; infrastructure investment; guarantees of clean water, healthy food and sustainable environment; and a curiously undefined “access to nature.”

Beyond those broad proposals, the plan and accompanying documents from Ocasio-Cortez include a range of far-fetched goals — and drew swift scorn from Republicans and other critics. The Republican National Committee dubbed it a “socialist wish list” that would kill at least 1 million jobs and disrupt global trade — while costing trillions.

This is a sterling example of liberal insane pretzel logic wrapped inside satanic Cultural Marxist strategy to lower our birth rates to exterminate us. Do not have children to “save the environment & planet” while pouring in millions & millions of high birth rate invaders to destroy our environment.

Magpie Ocasio-Cortez has evil in her mind, she’s off-balance and ill-nature. Take a moment and examine her picture, it says this individual is empty, disgruntled, hates people, she doesn’t smile, her mouth is clenched and her eyes are fixed, evil in her is befitting. Her latest appearance with her arms extended and pointing her finger is that of a dictator in womens’ clothing. Not to be trusted.

Crazy-O seems to be receiving big support from an invisible hand. So, who benefits? Soros benefits. The banisters benefit by busting American nationalism.

That curiously undefined “access to nature” is a most significant fragment from the Bauhaus’ architectural nightmare in which all of Western architectural aesthetics is replaced with strident Marxist rhetoric justifying the housing of the working classes in tiny, dark apartments (Minimalwohnung) stacked like building blocks to the sky into apartment mountains (Wohnbergen) in which humans life becomes shuffling in endless lines. Le Corbusier’s plans to raze most of Paris, Algiers, New York, and other major cities’ historic architecture to build endless rows of tall apartment towers housing people like parts in a machine (hence the name Machines For Living) would… Read more »

Boy this woman thinks she’s a real celebrity doesn’t she? I guess we are all going to have to keep watching these videos of her ” in the kitchen with AOC”. Think back on that stupid little dance she did on the rooftop when she was still supposedly in her teens. She has been auditioning for stardom from an early age. And like every other wannabe star who seeks the limelight, she is an off balance narcissist; the perfect pet for the king makers to manipulate and puff up. I wonder if the darling Cortez has bothered to direct all… Read more »

I think he has it right. That’s what’s behind all of the current maneuvering we’re seeing. Remember, they don’t work for us.

This woman lies like a rug:

She is too poor to rent an apartment but wears designer clothes. She hasn’t opened an office for her constituents. Could that be because she is only concerned with her owners, and they aren’t them?

Why do I have the feeling her father shot in the wrong hole and she dripped in by mistake? She sure has shit for brains…

I, for one, hope that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes never has any children of her own. Given her criminal insanity, she has proved to be a danger to herself and others.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: We very well may have the next Hillary Clinton on our hands here. She and Bernie Sanders could very well wind up burning America to the ground, literally and figuratively.

Well, first of all, I agree to some degree: AOC should NEVER have children. Then, there is this second thing….someone needs to put a bag over her head and trundle her onto an Amtrak train in the East somewhere…Harrisburg, PA, or somewhere in NYC….and send her across country where whe will ENDURE day after day, mile after mile of EMPTY AMERICAN LANDSCAPE……for sure, it changes your perception of America…it changes your perception of “crisis” of ANY KIND in America….it changes your perception of land and air use/quality that you are screaming about as being “at risk.” It changes your concept… Read more »

When the dumb speak, Ocasio-Cortez, only the dumb will listen.
