New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is finally available for all of America to read through, and it’s a meme goldmine if we’ve ever seen one.
If you actually are in the mood to scratch your eyes out from pure disbelief and blind rage, it’s definitely worth your time. If that isn’t your move today, we’ll get you through the main points very quickly: the bill moves to ban air travel, rebuild every single building in the country, and mandates that we all support those who are “unwilling to work.”
No, that last bit isn’t some far-right propaganda — the Green New Deal literally has a section about people who just don’t feel like working, and why that’s totally fine. There’s also a federal jobs guarantee, and precisely no plan on how to implement it. So, there’s that…
When reading through it, it’s important to keep in mind that the person spearheading this is on the record saying that she believes that the world is actually going to come to an apocalyptic end in 12 years. Again, this isn’t spin — this is something a real elected representative has said. She hasn’t issued any correction or anything like that either — she full believes this.
We feel there is an even simpler way to look at the Green New Deal, and this image captures that perfectly.
