Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in conjunction with The Intercept, released and narrated a short film extolling the virtues of the Green New Deal, reminding viewers that the world will end in 12 years, and comparing the fight against climate change to World War II.
In other words, it’s as bats*** crazy as you might imagine.
Aside from the particulars, the film – which clocks in at just over seven minutes – expresses one consistent theme; the world can only be saved if everyone listens to the former bartender from New York.
While the Earth-saving catalyst was Ocasio-Cortez according to the film, she admits she can’t so it alone, envisioning a utopia that’s only possible if Democrats win the Senate and the White House in 2020.
The U.S., under Ocasio-Cortez’ leadership, supposedly “kicked off our social and ecological transformation to save the planet.”
World War II
And the seriousness of global warming – you guys! – is akin to the Great Depression and World War II.
“Lots of people gave up. They said we were doomed,” she spoke as if from the future. “But some of us remembered as a nation we’d been in peril before. The Great Depression, World War II. We knew from our history how to pull together to overcome impossible odds and at the very least we owed it to our children to try.”
“The wave began when Democrats took back the house in 2018,” Ocasio-Cortez bragged, “and then the Senate and the White House in 2020 and launched the decade of the Green New Deal.”
Climate change is here + we’ve got a deadline: 12 years left to cut emissions in half.
A #GreenNewDeal is our plan for a world and a future worth fighting for.
How did we get here?
What is at stake?
And where are we going?

World War II comparisons are a constant theme with the Democrat socialist.
In October of this past year, she compared climate change to Nazi Germany in a call for more radical environmental efforts in the United States.
“So we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II,” Ocasio-Cortez told a crowd of supporters. “And so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before.”
Aside from the eerie tone of happiness and utopia in a film trying to sell an authoritarian government dream, the “Art of the Green New Deal,” as the film is titled, contains other tidbits of insanity.
Ocasio-Cortez reiterates the plan to retrofit every building in America. She reminds everyone that we only have 12 years to “change everything.”
This is one of the most delusional, terrifying things I have ever seen in my life.

She promotes Medicare for All and “public option guarantee” for jobs.
The illustrations include images of windmills on the front lawn of the White House, and depicts a scenario in which Miami is hit by a hurricane in the near future, submerging the city “underwater for the last time.”
In other words, it’s everything you’d expect from the far-left disaster that somehow managed to convince Democrats she was the future of their party.
