Ocasio-Cortez Lets It All Hang Out: The Green New Death‘

Feb. 26, 2019 (EIRNS)—For decades the LaRouche movement has been insisting that behind Green ideology and the radical environmentalist movement (including the its recent variant of climate change hocus-pocus), is nothing but British imperial depopulation and Malthusian genocide. Now the synthetic freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has pretty much said as much, in her own words. Young people “have a legitimate question,” she asserted: maybe they shouldn’t have children at all, since climate change is destroying the planet and they have lots of student debt.‘

Various media report on a Feb. 24 Instagram Live video by Ocasio-Cortez cooking in her kitchen, in which she said/rambled:

“Our planet is going to face disaster if we don’t turn this ship around. And so it’s basically like, there is a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult and it does lead, I think young people, to have a legitimate question. Ya know, should... is it okay to still have children? Not just financially because people are graduating with 20, 30, 100 thousand dollars of student loan debt so they can’t even afford to have kids in the house, but there’s also just this basic moral question, like, what do we do? And even if you don’t have kids, there are still children here in the world and we have a moral obligation to them to leave a better world to them.”‘

Ocasio-Cortez got crazier as she went along:

“The whole premise of the Green New Deal, is that we’re screwed on climate. I’m sorry to break it to you. When it comes to climate in particular, we’re actually screwed. There is a global threat to the planet. At this point, we don’t even have to prove it. Just walk outside in the winter in a lot of places, and it’s either way worse than you’re used to, or way warmer than you’re used to. Hurricanes, storms, wildfires. We are dying now.”‘
