The Green New Deal introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) last Thursday dwells on the plight of various oppressed groups, but somehow fails to mention lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Americans. The Green New Deal legislation asserts that
climate change, pollution, and environmental destruction have exacerbated systemic racial, regional, social, environmental, and economic injustices (referred to in this preamble as systemic injustices) by disproportionately affecting indigenous peoples, communities of color, migrant communities, deindustrialized commu- nities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, women, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth (referred to in this preamble as frontline and vulnerable communities);
It also declares that one of its goals is
to promote justice and equity by stopping current, preventing future, and repairing historic oppression of indigenous peoples, communities of color, migrant communities, deindustrialized communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, women, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth (referred to in this resolution as frontline and vulnerable communities);
However, among all the various groups mentioned, Ocasio-Cortez and the Green New Deal somehow omitted the LGBT community.
Breitbart News noted the omission in its first report on the Green New Deal: (Note: the legislation fails to mention even once the historic oppression of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities. This is a homophobic and transphobic document.)
I am going to stop posting threads from my Android.
Oops! Now how did that happen?
AOC = Absolutely Outrageously Crazy. New acronym in the lexicon as in “You’re AOC” ...
OMG. Thinks a crime against humanity. She’s got a lot to answer for.
Wow, this is so stupid...
ICYMI: The Green New Deal wasnt real!! It was the Republicans that published it to embarrass the Democrats! It has been summarily scrubbed so the Dems no longer have to keep telling people that it was the Republicans that really started the meme! (I WISH I were kidding, but THIS scree is the Dems excuse for their own INCOMPETENCE!)
I don't have a label, dang. How will I know or you will know who I am?
BUT, will it produce a single kWh of power?
When I was in the power business, we were only concerned with producing reliable and economic power. We followed a simple "obligation to serve" credo. Things worked and worked well.
Things worked and worked well.
This is socialism where things may or may not work well or not at all, which is OK, since everyone pretends they work well and the socialist government pretends to pay them.
Yes, that socialism system works really well.
Does this mean homosexuals and eunuchs can keep their jets, cars and cows?
Love it! These clowns wouldn’t know a Watt from a Joule
A Green New Deal without shemales will never work.
That almost rhymes with that famous old song, "Jose, can you see?". :-)
(By the way also, how long will it be before the governor of Virginia starts appearing here and there in "greenface", in solidarity with AOC?)
A Joule is one of the sous vide in a pot gizmos that require a smart phone to run.
The term “Americans” includes all American citizens regardless of race, religion, skin color, sex or sexual perversion.
They can save a lot of print and booboo hurt feewings by saying “it affects everyone worse except normal white men.”
“Green New Deal Excludes LGBTQ Americans”
Because they fart too much.
