For a strong-willed feminist, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has no problem using her waterworks and vulnerability to score political points.
While attending the C40 World Mayors Summit, AOC choked back the tears while professing her fear of motherhood due to the questionable future of our world.
The lengths to which AOC will go to gain support for her agenda is pretty disgusting.
She constantly touts herself as an independent woman, yet she is clearly using emotion as a way to generate some sympathy for her cause.
While giving the keynote speech at the summit, she stated, “I speak to you not as an elected official or a public figure, but I speak to you as a human being.
“A woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet, because of what I know about our children’s future.”
She further stated, “I speak to you as daughter and descendant of colonized peoples who have already begun to suffer. Just two years ago one of the deadliest disasters in the United States struck in the form of Hurricane Maria.
“The climate change-powered storm killed over 3,000 Puerto Ricans, American citizens — my own grandfather died in the aftermath — all because they were living under colonial rule, which contributed to the dire conditions and lack of recovery.”
All the while, AOC was tearing up and struggling to hold back tears…
Working the Crowd
AOC’s remarks were very similar to what she has done when discussing illegal immigration.
She loves to get all teary-eyed to gain sympathy. She is trying to create policy through emotion, which is very dangerous ground on which to tread.
Green New Deal
What is really shocking is how she has managed to use all of that emotion to gain worldwide support for her Green New Deal.
When the plan was initially introduced, members of her own party were mocking her, but now her trillion-dollar plan has served as the framework for several presidential candidates’ climate change plan as well as being adopted by the C40 Summit.
Democrats said Trump’s inexperience should disqualify him from the office, yet they are allowing a woman who is just removed from a bartending position to set the world agenda for climate change.
Just a scary, scary thought.
