Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has launched a bizarre poster campaign in support of her Green New Deal.  You may recall that the Green New Deal is a laughable disaster that was first formulated simply as a means to “change the entire economy.”

I say the poster campaign is bizarre because I see no purpose in it at all . . . except perhaps to bait the right into calling it what is:  Soviet-style propaganda in support of Soviet-style communism.

She seems to have anticipated the pushback:

She claims the “art” will be distributed across America, presumably to help further brainwash the young and naive into embracing her bizarre, ill-considered, and quite ridiculous Green New Deal.

She tweeted that “These posters push us to imagine our future with a Green New Deal in two of our beloved NY-14 parks: Pelham Bay & Flushing Meadows.”  What does that even mean?  Push whom? She can do whatever she wants in her district, but pushing this insanity on the entire country is a non-starter, and these posters are the last way to go about banging her head against the Constitution.

Needless to say, the resemblance to Soviet-era propaganda did not go unnoticed.

As noted by Timothy Meads writing at Townhall:

I’m not saying AOC did this on purpose, but it probably isn’t a great idea to have communism be the first thing that people think of when they look at posters for a new economic proposal which overhauls every aspect of your life and the economy.

Frankly, the resemblance is a bit too on the nose for me, and it makes me suspicious of her motives.  Then again, she may be completely unaware of the history of her chosen ideology?  Or perhaps she thinks America is ripe for a communist “evolution” if not revolution?

When even Buzzfeed sees the problem . . . .

Meanwhile, other Twitter users just had fun with the idea.
