Danger Will Robinson!

This article is a re-edit of a simpler post I had written concerning Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the "Green New Deal" she had put forward.

As I reread the original post, I found that in some of my comments I came across quite "sharp". I do stand by my observations. And those that will develop more fully in this piece. If someone does not know where I am coming from in the sense of the background of where certain attitudes and lenses developed, it can be interpreted these are just one more example of another "angry conservative" or bigoted Christian. And in today's media climate, more than ever people of different opinions have been trained to shower those very labels against those they disagree with.

Both of these characterizations are very far from the truth by the way. Like..."as far as the east is from the west."

Yes, I am a Christian. Yes, I am "conservative" in my cultural views. There is one more thing that I am as well:

Educated.

And today, I am going to help you be the same.

Honestly, I feel very sorry for Ms. Cortez. Seriously. When she is not staring down the President with hatred in her eyes, or awkwardly huddling and giggling like a middle school girl on the playground at recess as she was at the February 2019 State of the Union, it seems obvious that basically, she is in way over her head.

Consider the following from the New York Post:

"In the race that caused an earthquake in the Democratic Party, 28-year-old newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upset longtime Rep. Joe Crowley, 57 percent to 42 percent.

But only about THIRTEEN PERCENT OF REGISTERED DEMOCRATS TURNED OUT to vote in the 14th Congressional District that takes in parts of Queens and the Bronx, according to a preliminary city Board of Elections tally."

This woman, who had minuscule constituent involvement in her election, has now been thrown into the national and international spotlight! That is a lot for anyone. And the lack of preparation and understanding of the gravity of her position is clear for the world to see. I wouldn't want to be her.

I ardently disagree with most of her ideas. And certainly, the en-vogue expressions adopted by many of her colleagues of anger and hate reflexively demonstrated any time our President is mentioned. Yet I do have compassion on her as a person. I'm telling the God's honest truth when I say that though I vehemently disagree with her ideas, in a heartbeat I can pray and not have an ounce of animosity toward her as a person whom Christ has died for to live with Him forever.

Resistance to a persons ideas is not the same as hatred toward the person. That idea is stupid.

So, in this reedit, I am including more detail of why we should resist her political beliefs and goals wholeheartedly. They are formed in the furnace of a philosophy that despises our way of life and has been engineered to "fundamentally change" our culture and values. They are "antichrist" in their formation, and certainly can be demonstrated they are so in their implementation. We have well over one hundred years of evidence to prove it.

Ding ding...round two:

After reading a few articles and commentary concerning the “Green New Deal" ideas put forward by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, I have a few comments I would like to share as we look closer at the "grounds" from which she would submit such things.

It is agreed by many that the proposals were so extreme, even childlike in their naivete, the overwhelming ridicule forced her to remove them from her public thread. It seems the description of "nonsense", may be too kind.

I contend that not only should this woman make you nervous as we discover more the roots of her worldview, so should those including Kamala Harris and others who jumped on board supporting it. Harris tweeted in reference to the article and I quote: "We must aggressively tackle climate change which poses an existential threat to our nation."

This is what I want to discuss.

"Existential Threat"

Let's key in on the term "existential threat", since it is this very comment that instigated my wanting to write about this subject.

First, a few excerpts from the Green New Deal document:

"Totally overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere, build out high- speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary, create affordable public transit available to all, with goal to replace every combustion-engine vehicle."

Gee...OK...let's get rid of cars and airplanes...but there's more!

How about abolishing cows!!!

"We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast."

Yes, "farting cows", is actually part of the document. And the gas filled cow removal plan is in the same sentence as getting rid of airplanes!

That these "best and brightest" lawmakers are concerned with flatulating cows, rebuilding or renovating all buildings in the US, removing all cars and airplanes, and would actually consider these realistic, redefine the definition of "extreme and out of touch". Extreme and out of touch not just with people, but with reality!

And this woman is a lawmaker in the US Congress?

As of right now, there is a relentless PR campaign being waged toward "damage control". They and the media that is complicit with them, are claiming everything from being accidentally posted, to it's only a rough draft, that it's out context, etc. I submit it really doesn't matter if any of those are true. They are not by the way. Each "excuse" is being easily debunked.

The reason I say it doesn't matter, is because what she wrote, and that which Corey Booker and Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren, and every one else that jumped aboard with her, has shown their true colors. What they hold as their worldview and what they want to have happen to our nation is clear for all to see. No matter how much they try to backtrack. The emperors clothes are no clothes at all; and we can see right through.

Their "socialism" is naked for all to behold. Actually, it's not theirs. The ideas have been around for a long time. Birthed and owned by those who had great angst and severe hatred toward not just our socio-economic persuasions, but our faith and morality as well. The architects of these things knew quite well that our faith and morality must be assaulted as they were the foundations and lens for the economic positions and practices we hold to. Knowing that this is a barrage against not just how we make money and how it's spent and who gets to take how much from you, but the morality and religion that we hold dear. We must follow the ramifications of their ideology, and what it m
