Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has yet again opened her mouth and stuck her foot in it, this time on the topic of climate change and human reproduction, neither issue, it seems, she is fit to comment about.
At one time it seemed possible that she was just fooling around, after all, no one human being could be that clueless. Well, it seems that’s not true after all.
“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping up food in her kitchen during an Instagram live video. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?'”
Ocasio-Cortez then took a shot at Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) over an incident that happened in Feinstein’s office on Friday when a far-left fringe group tried to pressure Feinstein into supporting the Green New Deal.take our poll - story continues below
“You know what’s interesting about this group?” Feinstein told the group on Friday, in response to the group storming into her office. “I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing.”
“You come in here, and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that,” Feinstein continued. “I’ve gotten elected, I just ran. I was elected by almost a million-vote plurality. And I know what I’m doing. So you know, maybe people should listen a little bit.”
Ocasio-Cortez said Feinstein’s response was “like not good enough” because the legislation that the Democrats support is “frankly going to kill us.”
“This idea that ‘I’ve been working on this for x-amount of years,’ um, it’s like not good enough,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Like, we need a universal sense of urgency, and people are like trying to introduce watered-down proposals that are frankly going to kill us. A lack of urgency is going to kill us.”
Socialist @AOC discusses how people should reconsider having children due to global warming, and reminds us that we are all going to *literally* die if the Green New Deal doesn’t pass.

Listening to her speak is absolutely painful, isn’t it? She’s just so utterly uneducated on practically every issue she speaks on, it’s almost embarrassing.
The truth of the matter is, the science involving climate change is not completely settled. There’s no real consensus yet, making it a divisive issue. It’s far too early in the game to even think about suggesting people stop having kids.
And, to be honest, most science indicates that despite claims to the contrary, earth is not nearing it’s capacity for maintaining human life. The planet is not in danger of being overpopulated. Totally myth.
Now if we could only get folks on the left to understand this.
