Ego much? Ocasio-Cortez video from the future shows how she helped save the planet

Ego much? Ocasio-Cortez video from the future shows how she helped save the planet

Obama just wanted to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet, AOC has much grander predictions for what she will accomplish

I’m so old that I remember when Obama was (perhaps rightly) declared a “malignant narcissist” following his claims that his nomination as the 2008 Democratic candidate for president was the moment when the “rise of the oceans began to slow” and the “planet began to heal.”

Obama is a humble traveler in sackcloth compared to freshman representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).  In a truly jaw-droppingly myopic celebration of herself, AOC released a video peddling her insane Green New Deal and placing herself as some sort of savior of mankind.  Obama just wanted to manage oceans and heal the planet, AOC has much grander plans.

Here’s the full video:

We’ve seen AOC’s inflated view of herself and of her perceived “power” when she declared that it didn’t matter if the American people objected to her flaky Green New Deal because she’s “the boss.”

What we may not have fully realized is that she is of the new breed of “true believers” for whom true belief doesn’t mean walking the talk; this generation of “true believers” eschews personal accountability in the name of the “greater good.”  So it’s okay for her to fly while advocating the abolition of planes (for the masses. Does anyone really think the “elite” will not fly in planes once the rest of us are grounded for our own good?).  And this is now okay. She’s special, so she gets special flying privileges.  The rest of us can take a train. Or something.

We see this double standard in her stunningly horrific video of a future America over which she imagines she presides in some way—it’s not clear how a nobody rep from an NYC district that, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), a progressive glass of water could win thinks she’s the future. But she so clearly does.

The future AOC foresees becomes almost laughable as she builds that future vision on climate alarmist lies.  She talks, for example, about the temperature of the planet rising five degrees, yet even the most devoted AGW-advocate scientists note that the rise in global temperatures is negligible for fifty to a hundred years.

While her climate change alarmism is disturbing enough, other elements of this video are worth noting.

Here we have “Medicare for all and a federal jobs guarantee” (what could go wrong?).

Here’s where American workers get to build stuff because the state needs stuff built.  Jobs, right? Everyone wants a job, and in AOC’s vision of America any old job for the state will do.

While AOC sits around being “the boss,” Americans can be joyful that their great skills and talents are put to work on her green new energy and infrastructure plans.  AOC wants “every building in America retrofitted,” so guess what, you happy worker bee, you get to do that! For a “living wage” and stuff!

Who cares if you have zero interest in or skills relevant to providing the work the state needs; the state needs retrofitting of every single building in America.  You will be made to not only care but to contribute.

AOC’s self-inflating video goes on to lay out plans for a unionized “Americorp Climate,” whatever that is, and then discloses some sort of “universal childcare initiative.”  These initiatives are apparently intended to stoke maximum climate change alarmism and minimal interest in actual science.

To that end, AOC promises good pay and benefits to “low carbon jobs” like teaching, health care, and domestic workers.

Ultimately, we’ve seen this climate alarmism before in Al Gore, and he was smart enough to make a mint with his heart-stopping, emotion-tugging 10-year predictions (none of which came to pass, of course).

AOC will be 41 in 12 years, so she’s going to be hammered as Gore never was after his 10-year doomsday predictions didn’t come true.  The difference?   He was a washed up former VP, failed presidential contender manbearpig, and AOC will be 41.  And looking for work as a bartender.

One of the tiresome things about truly stupid people is that they imagine that they are as smart as everyone else.

    It’s called the Dunning-Krueger effect.

      MajorWood in reply to RodFC. | April 17, 2019 at 11:02 pm

      I recall a similar study maybe 10 years ago by some Stony Brook psych profs where they did a self assessment of intelligence vs IQ and saw a bias where stupid people thought that they were smarter than their peers, while smart people realized just how much that they didn’t know. I think that AOC is doubly blessed having both low academic and low emotional intelligence. That way she doesn’t have to suffer the humilation of realizing that she comes off as a total dolt, at least to people with an IQ above room temp.

        oldgoat36 in reply to MajorWood. | April 18, 2019 at 7:42 am

        Add to her other problems she is a narcissist who cannot accept any criticism of herself and doubles down on everything she is called out on for her stupidity.

        She is not unlike Obama in that regard.

        Most politicians are touched with narcissistic tendencies, some lean more toward egotistical issues, which is preferred to narcissism. She is totally blind to her short comings as a person, and with the media who created this monster, just as they had with Obama, she likely will never see it.

        Hillary suffers the same affliction. Just look at her blaming everyone and everything else for her failure to be anointed Queen.

        This is a very dangerous trait that we are seeing more and more of in politics. Mad Max, another prime example.

        I think you need to be overly egotistical to run for most high political offices. When it verges into narcissism it is dangerous grounds for We the People.

    The unfortunate truth is that the average IQ of Hispanics is 87, American blacks 85 and Puerto Ricans 83 (AOC’s group).

    It seems that egos can be very large in people who have little reason to have them.

    Perhaps this is a result of not being smart enough to understand just how ignorant they are?

      oldgoat36 in reply to JusticeDelivered. | April 18, 2019 at 7:45 am

      It also makes you wonder how she got the academic credits she obtained. There is no way someone of her limited intelligence could have pulled off graduating college let alone with honors.

      Maybe she took a page out of Harris’s playbook.

I was driving around the middle of nowhere Texas last weekend and saw a bunch of new windmills up I hadn’t seen in the area last time I was there. Texas has more windmills than any other state. Among the Top 10 largest wind farms on earth, Texas has five.

Have you ever seen a massive wind farm up close? I’m gonna guess almost everyone in America has not. They take up a ridiculous amount of space. It is surreal. This state has the empty space to put in as many windmills as it has, I don’t know how many more are coming. I see the blades on wide load trucks pretty much every single time I’m on the interstate.

With all those windmills, we only get 15% of our energy from them. Moving to solar and wind on the scale that these climate Nazis want would mean plunking down windmills and solar panels that would make building anything else impossible.

I’m a big fan of the United States, but we have enough gas and oil, sometimes I think – let’s just tell the rest of the country to go to hell and start up the Republic one more time. I’ll let anyone else become an automatic citizen as long as you bring a shovel to help dig up Austin and throw it in the Gulf.

    puhiawa in reply to Colonel Travis. | April 17, 2019 at 9:25 pm

    California is full of “dead soldiers”. Windmills that no longer work and will not be fixed because the owner took his income and the leasing company the tax credit and depreciation. So no one is left to repair or put in a new generator. Then the State encourages the companies to let them turn in the wind so as to pretend they are working. They are pretty good at killing birds still.

      Colonel Travis in reply to puhiawa. | April 17, 2019 at 11:24 pm

      Interesting. I’d like to read more about that. The amount of energy required to build and maintain them is not insignificant.

        Virginia42 in reply to Colonel Travis. | April 18, 2019 at 6:40 am

        Not only that, but you cannot generate adequate baseload electricity with fans or solar; and you can’t store the energy generated in any consistent way. The Euros have learned this the hard way, though they’re still in denial about it.

          JusticeDelivered in reply to Virginia42. | April 18, 2019 at 7:20 am

          Hydro is nice because there is complete control over how much power is produced and time, solar produces at the same time as peak air conditioning demand. Wind is the least predictable.

          There is advantage in lower distribution losses with solar, wind to a lesser degree.

          There is also significant advantage to distributed power production, in that it is hard to knock out, while a large plant makes a good target, something I have mentioned regarding Iran’s constant scheming.

          Also, there are several newer battery technologies which show great promise for both utility and point of use economical storage.

          Where industry is concerned, nuclear is probably the best long term solution, and there are newer safer reactor designs which appear to not be subject to meltdowns.

      The wind farms in the Coachella Valley, west of and north of Palm Springs are slowly but steadily accumulating a lot of dead generators. Missing props, or ones still standing where you can see the soot from the fire that took it out.

      The place is ugly. It is a blight on the landscape.

      The props are governed to turn a particular speed. This is why, when you see a wind farm, all the ones of a particular size are “marching in step”. It has to do with turning the generator at the speed needed to join up with the others in proper synch.

      Here is what happens when the speed governor fails in one:

    “They take up a ridiculous amount of space.”

    Thye mesh nicely with farms, and help family farms survive.

Clearly, a legend in her own mind! However tiny that mind is.

She is, ironically, quite green. A profit, certainly. A prophet, probably not.

I still think Karl Marx said it better.

By putting it out there she’s keeping her name topical in the public discourse, and through continual repetition of her ideas and her “Green New Deal,” is also moving the Overton window so as to imprint them with the veneer of acceptability.

    guyjones in reply to maxmillion. | April 17, 2019 at 9:54 pm

    Your observation is a good one.

    Recent history has shown that intellectually vapid, pathological narcissists and demagogues with a self-reverential view of themselves, holding odious radical Leftist sociopolitical views, having odious personal associations, and, boasting a total paucity of substantive professional accomplishment, can, nonetheless — with the aid of a worshipful and water-carrying media apparatus which dutifully strives to enlarge and polish their mythology, and, to cover up and ignore their personal and policy flaws and failings — achieve spectacular influence and political longevity, far beyond what their meager intellects and embarrassingly-thin résumés would normally merit.

    I mean, take a look at the manner in which Occasional-Cortex has been feted, promoted, and canonized, non-stop, by the Leftist media, since her arrival out of the Ether of Bartending Irrelevance, as some sort of person of alleged substantive accomplishment — gracing the covers of magazine hagiography puff-pieces; strutting on-stage at cultural festivals that are ostensibly apolitical (e.g., South by Southwest) and being venerated as some sort of serious “thought leader;” being promoted on inane TV talk shows, by sycophantic, Left-leaning hosts; it’s nauseating.

    But, this is the way the world works, now — for Leftists/Dumb-o-crats, repetitive pop culture hyper-exposure confers the sort of legitimacy that strong personal character/integrity, sound values and substantive professional accomplishment in the private sector, once conferred, previously. As Andrew Breitbart sagely observed, “Politics runs downstream from culture.”

pete_edwards | April 17, 2019 at 9:50 pm

This is very similar to the story of Julia that Obama used, isn’t it?

I had a couple of laughs from it though.

The fact the a sitting member of the house is saying this, to me, is scary as heck.

    guyjones in reply to pete_edwards. | April 18, 2019 at 1:12 pm

    I had thought the same thing. The similarities between the “Julia” slides and this new animated movie, are profound.

    Both devices are vanity-driven propaganda pieces that posit that only a self-perceived messianic Dumb-o-crat “savior” can usher in Leftist Utopia — in the case of “Julia,” the sainted Obama; in this new animation, Occasional-Cortex.

I’m surprised that we don’t talk about this phenomenon more often — the transparent, manifestly unhealthy and pathological narcissism and megalomania of so-many of the prominent Dhimmi-crats/Dumb-o-crats. The sainted Obama couldn’t open his mouth without referring to himself, ad nauseam, in self-reverential and fatuous tones. And, of course, the Obama-deifying media sycophants ate it all up, without offering a scintilla of criticism about this odious, off-the-charts vanity.

Occasional-Cortex is no different, viewing herself as some sort of messianic “savior” of Americans (and, perhaps, the world), which is a hallmark of all would-be tyrants.

The less that these empty-suit twits have accomplished in life (and, holding political office doesn’t count as substantive accomplishment, nor does being a “community organizer”), the more egotistical they are, and, the more they ceaselessly talk about themselves.

I can’t be the only person who laments this new phenomenon, on the Left, of the “political celebrity” — narcissistic, ne’er-do-well, empty-suit demagogue-twits, boasting non-existent private sector professional accomplishment, but, nonetheless, being granted fame, fortune and media attention far beyond what their meager talents (such as they are) and intellects would command, in the private sector.

Politicians work for us — they should never be canonized, deified and treated as “heroes.” The Left doesn’t understand that treating politicians as “celebrities” worthy of total deference and worship is very unhealthy and undesirable.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to guyjones. | April 18, 2019 at 1:57 pm

    It was unhealthy when FDR was canonised. It was taken to a sickening degree with the trailer-trash-with-money Kennedy family.

It’s so important that when Congress had the chance to support it not one Democrat voted for it. Not. One. Including Saint Oscasio-Cortez.

I think my favorite part was right near the end. There I learned that sometime before 2028, “parts of Miami went underwater for the last time.” [cue sad trombones]

Current high-end estimates put average sea level rise around 3 mm per year. This would raise the sea level a bit over an inch by 2028. But math is hard, and hand-drawn pictures of drowning cities are so sympathy-inducing…

According to something I read, she previously tried her hand at children’s book illustration. Inscrutably that enterprise flopped. Why, I wonder.

    MajorWood in reply to jolanthe. | April 18, 2019 at 12:07 pm

    Her children’s illustrations were likely doodles drawn on napkins between making drinks. She is the belle of embellishment.

Would not be surprised to see her reduced to one term.

As someone with advanced degrees in engineering and mathematics (finally – I get to pull rank!) I find this fascination over so-called “green energy” to be on the same intellectual level as astrology and voodoo.

Solar, wind, geothermal, wave – all have serious technological shortcomings advocates minimize or skip over completely. Solar energy is a particularly nasty polluter of the environment: solar cells and the rechargeable batteries they require are made with toxic, hard to dispose of chemicals. Nuclear fusion continues to remain out of reach (it is enormously difficult to produce a sustained fusion reaction, let alone one that produces more energy than it requires). Commercial nuclear fission is a mature technology that has been around for decades, yet no self-respecting greeniac Luddite would dare endorse it.

But while the idea of getting more than a tiny percentage of our energy from “green energy” is a bunch of pseudoscientific moonshine, it would be unwise to underestimate AOC. Say what you will about her: she is a skilled demagogue who knows her target audience very well. Her audience consists of college graduates with worthless degrees steeped in communist ideology, journalists who know how to use an Internet search engine and think that makes them Nobel-caliber scientists, bored rich trust fund babies who find meaning in life trying to “make the world a better place” (how much evil has been done in the name of the horrible phrase!) and the various taxpayer-fed parasites that infest academia and government that feed off of schemes like the one AOC proposes.

I smell a nobel.

There she is in the video on the train to Hawaii.

If she really were intelligent and as ethnically Hispanic as she presents herself then wouldn’t she pronounce chili the right way, and not as though it is the country Chile? She is a fraud.

    PostLiberal in reply to WestRock. | April 18, 2019 at 7:28 pm

    You are correct. The dish is called “chili.” The peppers found in chili are chiles in Spanish. As she is making vegetarian chili, she mispronounced it. Puerto Rico and Noo Yawk are a fair distance from Texas and San Antonio, which leads me to conclude that she doesn’t know much about Tex Mex food. What a surprise- that AOC knows less than she thinks she knows.

This video is like the low budget B movie sequel to Life of Julia, the original horror classic. Maybe AOC should have considered adult cinema instead.

It’s not “ego”. These people all think of themselves as cartoon superheroes. That’s what “save the Earth” means.

Reality is boring and doesn’t have emotional fulfillment for them, so they live their lives in a daydream where they are the hero that saved the Earth. Everything is free in this dream, but they are kept from it by cartoon supervillians.

Making up stories is the left’s core “philosophy”.

Apparently because we have 12 years to save the world, this video looks like it was produced by a 12-year-old (and narrated by an 8-year-old for 4-year-olds).

AOC is stupid and racist. There is not a single White male in the drawings.
