Sizzling anti-burger narrative puts Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal in a pickle

When Rep. Rob Bishop wanted to signal his opposition to the Green New Deal, he did it by sinking his teeth into a juicy cheeseburger from the Good Stuff Eatery. “If this goes through, this will be outlawed. I could no longer eat this type of thing,” said the Utah Republican between bites at last week’s Western Caucus press conference. “So before they take it away from me, before it’s illegal and an endangered species — I’m actually going to enjoy this a whole lot more than I would the Green New Deal.” Three weeks after it was introduced, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s signature climate-change resolution has become embroiled in a debate over whether Americans should continue to have it their way when it comes to the all-American burger. Foes of the Green New Deal are loving it. At CPAC, former Trump White House aide Sebastian Gorka charred the anti-beef initiative, saying, “They want to rebuild your home, they want to take away your hamburgers. This is what Stalin dreamt about but never achieved.” Rep. Paul Gosar, Arizona Republican, said at the press conference that the sweeping resolution would expand government control, given that “nobody’s going to volunteer to give up their burgers or their milkshakes … People are going to need to be coerced.”

And that’s putting it mildly.  We’ll have to give up airline travel, our muscle cars,  and yes..  steaks and burgers because, well..cows fart too much.  And they’ve said as much!  How crazy is that?!?  For more, click on the text above.

  1. One of my favorite authors, JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts), writes about a future 60 years from now where there is no more red meat, no more coffee, and no more muscle cars (everything is soy)……a lot of similar references in the Green New Deal is also referenced in the books. Wonder if AOC is a fan of JD Robb, lol
