Skip to comments.AOC's New Green Deal: Ban Cars, Ban Airplanes, Ban Cows, and Also, Open Borders Forever
Posted on 02/07/2019 4:18:11 PM PST by MountainWalker
As I like to point out: Whenever Mexican or other countries' territory was incorporated into the US, all persons living on that land were made US citizens automatically. The law said so. When the US annexed New Mexico, all those who had formerly been Mexican citizens in New Mexico immediately also became US citizens.
It is not true that anyone was dispossessed of US citizenship who had been here.
That's why she speaks of "cultures" having been here, not people. Because all the actual people who were in the US at the time of incorporation did become US citizens. She wants to say that anyone who is racially Hispanic, even if they have never had a single point of contact with the US in not only their own history but their entire family's history, is owed US citizenship on purely racial grounds.
This is sometimes (wrongly) called "La Reconquesta." That's wrong, because there's no "Re" here. The people who are attempting the Reconquesta never conquesta'ed the US before, and in fact never lived here nor had any legal claim to live here, before.
You can't re-do something you've never before done.
There is no Right to Return to a place ya never been.
They're arguing for a new right to conquest -- based exclusively on (ta-da!) a claimed right-by-race.
She's not arguing for an individual's right to citizenship -- say, if that individual's family had been unlawfully removed from the US, or if that individual was improperly denied a visa or improperly denied citizenship after completely all legally required steps.
No, she's arguing that some people have a purely Racial Right to US citizenship -- their Race gives them superior rights to all others.
Well then. If AOC wants to promote the idea of US citizenship based purely on racial identity, should we ask other racial interests groups if they would like to make their own proposals for purely race-based citizenship?
Why do only Hispanics get to play this game of La Raza? The media tells me everyday that the US is teeming with White Nationalists who want to form an ethnostate. Why does AOC have a better claim in forming one than they do? Once the principle of Racial Right of Sovereignty is established and accepted, then it's just a matter of arguing about which race gets the spoils.
More from Tiana Lowe here.
Here's my modest proposal: Trump and Congressional Republicans should pass an law that allows -- or even requires -- a state to act as the Laboratory for testing AOC's ideas. I nominate the state of New York, because it's very liberal, claims to be very, very concerned with the environment, and it foisted this borderline-retard on us.
New York, then, will be required to do all the things that AOC demands of it -- we can suspend the ordinary constitutional protections against state coercion for these purposes; I mean, this is such an important cause, should a very old piece of paper written by dead white men stand in the way of progress? -- and we allow (or require) New York to ban cars, airplane travel, and cows (and all other ruminant sources of meat).
Hell, let's just do what she so clearly wants us to do and declare her Political Messiah.
Then we build some big beautiful walls around New York, Snake Plissken style, and we check back in ten f**king years and ask whatever survivors are still remaining what they think of Breakfast Club Evita.
So Much to Cover: I forgot to mention, this retard's "Green Deal" also guarantees "economic security to those unable or unwilling to work..."
Well, combine that with declaring flatly that anyone with a single drop of Hispanic blood has a racial right to citizenship, and... Wow.
The Venezuelan Princess is at it again. I’m sure she refined her ideas at 2:00 in the morning as she formulated her ideas with the last call crowd slumped over the bar.
“Wow like, wouldn’t it be awesome if we just banned all the cows?! And then those airplanes are so wasteful, why can’t people just take a train over to England?!”
Gee, I wonder what she thinks of citizens owning guns?
She had even less brain than previously determined. What a ninny!
Like a bridge over intercontinental waters
AOC isn't talking about building train tracks to London.
She's asking, "What do you need to go to London for?"
There won't be anyone taking overseas vacations in AOC's new America.
No she actually said they would build bridges across the ocean
Only green deal i am interested in is turning aoc into soylent green. Feed the detained illegals it.
Hows about we ban a little arrogant disrespectful teenager bitch who knows nothing about anything
She could not handle half the reality many of us deal with daily.
A Dem is a Dangerous thing it only wants to destroy
Well I guess she wont be receiving campaign donations from Boeing. Hope she keeps talking.
No constitutional authority to do that to any state, but Congress could take back DC home rule and do it to all of the district, not just the legislative part (separation of powers might protect Supreme Court, WH and exec branch buildings from this). I recall David Brinkley talking about how the advent of AC to D.C. under FDR changed the place. No one wanted to work there year round; the bureaucracy was much smaller before AC. Then I recall reading about all the drainage projects having to be done in the district well into to 1800s. Restoring DC to its original swamp status would help demoralize and drain its current SWAMP. Although its probably too much to ask for the return of its malaria and yellow fever.
“What are we all supposed to do? Circle around 1 solar lightbulb?”
Yes comrade. We are to circle around generous state provided community solar powered lightbulb for nighttime reading of glorious leader’s book “Dreams of my Father”. No batteries at all since battery damage state environment and cause cancer in california. Sunlight powers nightime light!!!
State executives require luxury since job is very hard. State thank you for understanding. Chocolate rations will increase from 25 to 20 this spring after burning city is paved to make way for glorious new tractor factory for chocolate.
"So, you're doing an AOC on me??"
“go live in some country with very few modern conveniences for 5 years - no, 10 years.”
Why? She and her ilk will have every single modern convenience known to mankind should she get her way.
We are the ones destined to live in piss and squalor for the good of the state and our overlords that know what is best for us.
AOC has no need to live in a third world shithole to experience anything ... that will never be her life no matter if she wins or loses.
Well I demand the removal of all walls around politician’s houses, Hollyweird houses and the rich peoples houses first.
“Gee, I wonder what she thinks of citizens owning guns?”
We really need to become familiar with the Spanish Civil war.
Something bad like that could happen here if the crazies keep getting more numerous and more radicalized.
