The Green (Read: RED) New Deal

 

 

By Mike Smith

Imagine you’ve not seen the title of this writing, and have never heard of Representative Alexandria Ocasia-Cortez or the New Deal she’s proposing.

Communism’s many, many victims beg us to let Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s own Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) speak for her as to her so-called ‘Green’ New Deal intentions:

“We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, racial quality and non-oppressive relationships.”

‘Economic planning’ and ‘equitable distribution’ are known in clear-speak as government control of resources and production. That’s not socialism, folks — that’s Communism!

For the record, Rep. AOC is a card-carrying DSA member.

Now what does the above have to do with Rep. AOC’s proposed New Deal, you may ask? Enough — that’s what it has to do with it. That Rep. AOC already belongs to a group cloaking a communist agenda under the veneer of ‘Democratic Socialism’ is our first clue as to an ulterior motive.

Associations matter. The DSA statement you read compels us to reasonably suspect Rep. AOC’s proposed New Deal is communist. In other words, it stinks too bad to ignore.

By the way, that statement is a word-for-word passage from Article II, Constitution and Bylaws, Democratic Socialists of America.

What follows narrowly misses what Rep. AOC’s proposed New Deal is, albeit only rhetorically. Justin Haskins of Stopping Socialism asserts the deal is socialist. As you’ll see below —in view of the DSA’s actual identity— he meant to say the deal is communist:

In a proposed draft resolution to form a House committee to create legislation for the Green New Deal, Ocasio-Cortez provided important details for her plan. One of the most important elements of the plan is a mandated transition away from fossil fuels in virtually all aspects of American life and the creation of a huge new renewable energy industry. Ocasio-Cortez proposes ending the use of fossil fuels in nearly every industry, including on farms and in all manufacturing, in just 10 years, from 2020 to 2030. Additionally, all power in the United States would need to be produced using renewables, which have been proven on countless occasions to increase the cost of electricity.

Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t stop there, however. In addition to forcing everyone to use renewable energy, thereby closing entire existing energy industries and taking away the jobs of tens of thousands of people, she also proposes “upgrading” every single home and business building in the country, to make them more energy efficient and for “comfort,” a policy that would likely cost trillions of dollars on its own.” 

(Emphasis added).

Boom. This is a Red (Communist) New Deal, not a green (environmentalist) one. But what should we expect from the member of a deceptively named communist front group? Overlap the above passage with unclearly-written Article II, DSA Constitution and Bylaws — the result is a communist policy.

Mr. Haskins deserves the benefit of a doubt for doing his homework here. With the facts now out in the open, no clear thinker can claim Rep. AOC’s New Deal is merely environmentalist. Again, Rep. AOC can only bank on fools like those who elected her.

Socialism is the closeted means to an (eventual) open communist end. While all socialist policies are collectivist, not all collectivist policies are socialist. Certain ones are communist, as the facts of Rep. AOC’s Red New Deal show.

Rep. AOC and her DSA comrades refuse to admit it is communistic whenever the government is legislated into taking over private industries. Rep. AOC’s Red New Deal seeks to expand New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s communized urban collectivism to all of America  — especially where socialism is already in practice.

For perspective, if New York City were a state it would be to the left of California.

If you are okay with Rep. AOC’s Red New Deal, you deserve it. But your neighbor does not, who will also suffer under it — as will his or her family, including your own. That is what leftism ‘progresses’ into, whether socialist or communist.
