It’s also about socialism and it would be nice if Markey or Ocasio-Cortez would admit it.

Green New Deal is all about ‘intersectionality,’ Senate sponsor tells college students

In order to convince college students to support the Green New Deal, the senior senator from Massachusetts told them it addresses their two favorite subjects: “intersectionality and marginalization.”

Democrat Ed Markey spoke at the University of Massachusetts-Boston Monday to commemorate Earth Day, laying out arguments in favor of the nonbinding congressional resolution on climate change.

It was their concern for intersectionality and marginalization, he said, that led Markey and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to write the Green New Deal, which aims to fix “systemic racial, regional, social, environmental and economic injustices.”

Markey claimed that “the pope is on our side,” though Pope Francis has not taken a position on the Green New Deal, and warned that the re-election of President Trump, “the denier in chief,” would be a “death sentence for the planet.”

Markey crowed that about a dozen Democratic candidates for president are sponsors of the resolution, which contrasts with the absence of questions about climate change in the 2016 general election debate between Hillary Clinton and Trump.

Yet the senator may be taking his message to college students because his own colleagues aren’t ready to publicly support the far-reaching resolution. It also promises “high-quality health care” to all Americans, guaranteed jobs with “paid vacations,” and free college.
