AOC SPOX: “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.”…“Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

Climate Change has never been about protecting the earth, it has always been about undermining American, Democracy, Capitalism, and Freedom.

THE GREEN OLD SOCIALISM
In a fawning profile in the Washington Post Magazine, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, parted the curtain on the Green New Deal. The piece describes a meeting between Chakrabarti and an emissary from Washington Governor Jay Inslee, who is running for president on a global warming platform:

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 startling 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.”

Or, in other words, a make-government-all-powerful-and-squash-the-individual-like-a-bug thing. This theme recurs throughout the Post story.

At first Chakrabarti shared the idealism of those lured to the Bay Area to change the world through tech. But San Francisco was a shock. “You see, like, holy crap, is this the dystopian future we’re signing up for?” he says. “I mean, it’s just huge amounts of wealth and some very rich people, and then just poverty and homelessness very visually and very viscerally.”

It apparently didn’t occur to Chakrabarti that San Francisco’s problems might have something to do with its being ruled exclusively by progressives for decades. (Source)

  1. Here you go:

    At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.

    Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”

  2. Yep, the parasitic “ruling elites” (actual and wanna be), need a great big global crisis we unwashed masses can’t handle . . Something that requires anthill-like organization, which the ‘rule by consent of the governed’ model is too unwieldy and ant-centric to tackle.
