“we chose to mobilize our entire continent and industrialize our entire continent”
The left’s new favorite Democratic Socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, appeared at a town hall meeting in Queens on Friday night and compared fighting global warming to defeating the Nazis in World War II. It is becoming increasingly difficult to take her seriously as a person, let alone as a candidate.
Cameron Cawthorne reports at the Washington Free Beacon:
Ocasio-Cortez: We Must Use Blueprint From Defeating Nazis to Defeat Global Warming
Ocasio-Cortez appeared at a climate change town hall in College Point, a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, where she discussed her “radical” plan to tackle global warming, according to a clip first flagged by the Republican National Committee.
“When we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat in this country was around World War II, so we’ve been here before, and we have a blueprint of doing this before. None of these things are new ideas, but we have is an existential threat in the context of war,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“We had a direct existential threat with another nation and at this time it was Nazi Germany and Axis, who explicitly made the United States as an enemy, and what we did was that we chose to mobilize our entire continent and industrialize our entire continent, and we put hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people, to work in defending our shores and defending this country.”

As you can probably imagine, this has sparked a strong reaction on Twitter. Here are some responses, via Twitchy:
uh – besides resolve, the Nazis were defeated by petroleum, steel and explosives.

So a massive amphibious landing of infantry and armor on the Normandy coast will stop global warming?! Weird.

WAIT! Why doesn’t Occasionally-Cogent think that COMMUNISM was an existential threat? The Cold War? Because Reagan didnt seize control of the economy to fight it.
Why doesnt Occasionally-Cogent think TERRORISM is an existential threat? Because GWBush didnt seize control either.

She couldn’t read a friggin blueprint much less draw one up if her life depended on it. Keep it up honey. You’re the blueprint for the Red Wave.

This sort of talk might play well to a crowd of leftists in greater New York City, but to average Americans it comes off as pure lunacy. May she keep talking from now until election day.
