New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the most controversial Democrats in America.
As the leader of the “Squad,” Ocasio-Cortez has found herself in the middle of numerous scandals and controversies.
And now, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed her true colors with this one fatal mistake that she can never take back.
The economic disruption from the government lockdowns to combat the spread of the coronavirus reached the oil industry.
At one point, the May futures contract on barrels of oil traded at a negative 38 dollars per barrel, meaning producers were paying those trying to purchase the contract to store the oil.
The oil market temporarily cratered because government lockdowns closed off the economy and dramatically decreased the amount of Americans driving on the roads.
Without any demand for oil, excess supply sat around in storage.
But that meant storage space ran out and no one wanted contracts for future deliveries of oil.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seized on this development to promote her communist “Green New Deal” by laughing at the thought of the oil industry disappearing.
“You absolutely love to see it. This along with record low interest rates means it’s the right time for a worker-led, mass investment in green infrastructure to save our planet. *cough*,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
Conservatives and even the few remaining sane Democrats were appalled at Ocasio-Cortez celebrating the demise of the oil and natural gas industry because it employs 10 million Americans.
After massive social media backlash, Ocasio-Cortez deleted her tweet celebrating 10 million Americans’ jobs being vaporized and replaced it with one calling on Congress to adopt her Soviet-style “Green New Deal” program.
“This snapshot is being acknowledged as a turning point in the climate movement.” Ocasio-Cortez added, “Fossil fuels are in long-term structural decline. This along w/ low interest rates means it‘s the right time to create millions of jobs transitioning to renewable and clean energy. A key opportunity.”
Democrats and their allies in the fake news media celebrate this pandemic as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to remake America into a third world socialist-type nation like Venezuela.
The Green New Deal is the centerpiece of that plan.
Democrats and the fake news media claim America must reduce carbon emissions or inflict cataclysmic damage on the planet.
Much like the doomsday scenarios surrounding the coronavirus failed to materialize, the dire predictions surrounding global warming also were revealed to be hoaxes.
If Americans want to see the impact the “Green New Deal” will have on the country and the economy, they have to look no further than the last month.
In the Northeast, NASA estimates carbon emissions plunged 30 percent, a long-sought-after goal of the radical left.
But this benchmark was only achieved by shutting down the U.S. economy and throwing 22 million Americans into the unemployment line.
With one tweet, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed Americans her true intentions were economic destruction and widespread unemployment.
