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.
Ban prosperity. What are we all supposed to do? Circle around 1 solar lightbulb?
No Phone! No Lights! No Motorcar! Not a single luxury.
Can you say Civil War!
Rockrr’s Counter Proposal: Ban All Dhimmicrats
(and live happily ever after)
Circle around 1 solar lightbulb?
Why you need lighbulb comrade? The glorious government allows the sun to give us free light many hours of every day!
They’re not putting THAT genie back in the bottle, now are they?
Take care what you wish for, your wishes may be heard and granted. Only, they will come with unintended consequences, none of which anybody seems able to predict.
NO country with a congressional district that would elect this... this... person(?) can possibly survive.
In a functioning, sane nation, this woman would receive a vanishingly tiny percent of the vote in any district.
Now where's my check?
She should move to Death Valley in July and see how she likes not having a place to cool off!!
"Free stuff for everyone!" is amazingly popular.
The woman is mentally ill. One of these days horseface is really going to explode in anger. I just hope that it is taped for all to see.
Way to kill the economy! Great! And only the “elites” will be able to drive or fly.
Do I hear a mockingjay singing?
The professor would have been executed as a thought criminal if it was AOC and fellow travelers on the island.
Make America Mexico
Used to be a Bush slogan, but now AOC is carrying that torch. At least Amnesty George wasn’t also a socialist in addition to being a No Borders fool.
On the other hand, if she gets her way, we better hope for open borders so that we can leave! Unfortunately, socialist utopias tend to change their countries into prison camps.
I have never been in AOCs district but my guess its probably similar to Mad Maxines, just on the other side of the country.
AOC,you flaming embecile, go live in some country with very few modern conveniences for 5 years - no, 10 years. Steep in your vision for the future so you are speaking from experience. It’s really the only way to be authentic instead of commiting cultural appropriation against third world sh*tholes.
Well if she get her way we won’t need any border security as no one will want to come here anyway.
