Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ripping her fellow Democrats for failing to take up her proposed special climate change committee called the Green New Deal because it was deemed "too controversial."
Ocasio-Cortez in a Twitter thread Monday blamed House leadership for rejecting the idea behind the Green New Deal, which aimed to create a plan to get the country on a 100 percent renewable energy electric grid.
"A few weeks ago, I joined youth activists in a specific demand for a Green New Deal Committee. It had 3 simple elements: 1. No fossil fuel money on climate cmte 2. Offer solutions for impacted communities 3. Draft sample #GreenNewDeal All 3 were rejected as too controversial," she tweeted.

I’m glad the Democrats have finally got themselves a “Maverick.” LOL!
Gotta make more popcorn!!!
Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -— The gift that keeps on giving...
Lets hope she votes Republican as often as ours voted Democrat. Especially on the big issues. But Im not holding my breath...
No doubt she’s an idiot, but the bigger concern is that an entire generation of children have been fed a diet of this nonsense in grade school, high school and college and actually believe it
Ocasio-Cortez did not respond to tweets asking her to name the person who labeled the committee controversial.
“Lets hope she votes Republican as often as ours voted Democrat.”
If a Republican votes conservative, probably the most he will suffer for it is to be pursued across a lobby and into an elevator by some annoying woman making a video and demanding to know why he is killing her children. But, if AOC were to vote conservative on something, she might actually be assaulted or even killed by an outraged “supporter.” People on the far Left have no sense of belonging to a diverse universe of people with differing views. The people on the far Left are following a cult. And, if there were no Left as we know it, they would be following whatever cult was popular in their culture. In a word, they are crazy.
Shes going to be SO much fun.
Ze is a poster zer for Democrat-raised and indoctrinated children.
She is the predictable result of Democrat/progressive/feminist indoctrination.
AOC is gonna be the gift that keeps on giving. Mighty confident in her omniscience.
This young woman no doubt saw a lot of men working as a bartender but apparently never found one for herself. Its obvious she needs male companionship. Doubt she will find happiness in Washington.
Try changing the name to Soylent Green New Deal.
I do not think she is an idiot. She just knows a whole lot of things that are not true.
At 29, I recall I had some pretty silly ideas about how the world worked as well.
She has had the entire establishment (as you so astutely note) feeding her nonsense and re-enforcing it, over and over and over.
I am not surprised she is entirely convinced of it. She has been told it is absolutely true by authority figures, for her entire rational, life.
It makes for interesting drama. I wonder if she will ever "red pill". I doubt it. She is too comfortable, he interests are now too completely aligned with maintaining the scam.
Gonna need to put a bit in her mouth.
+. Also she clearly has gotten a good handler and is adapting very fast. She is a true danger to the future of the county.
She’s like that proverbial rash that you just can’t reach.
And they will vote for whatever their future high priestess favors.
She will play the wise Latina for all its worth and fool enough of our youth to make a difference in some form going forward
Bingo on future danger.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sure does yammer alot.
Pelosi’s new dog that she will sic on anyone.
