This is quite the sight to see…
Socialist rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cried at the C40 Global Mayors Summit on Friday during an alarmist weather speech in Copenhagen where she said that her “dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet because of what I know about children’s future.”
Ocasio-Cortez started her alarmist speech by stating that society was at a “extinction or opportunity crossroads, adding that on climate policy there is “no middle road.”
“The climate crisis is already here,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “On this note I speak to you not as an elected official or public figure, but I speak to you as a human being — a woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet because of what I know about our children’s future, and that our actions are responsible for bringing their most dire possibilities into focus. I speak to you as a daughter and descendant of colonized peoples who have already begun to suffer.”
“It is not a coincidence that these disasters get relatively little media coverage, and that even less of the coverage dares to mention climate change,” Ocasio-Cortez falsely claimed. Media coverage of natural disasters is often granted extensive attention, with “climate change” being one of the media’s top spots.

“It is not a coincidence that the truth is controversial,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “None of this is a coincidence because climate change is not a coincidence or a scientific anomaly. Climate change is a consequence. It is a consequence of our unsustainable way of life.”
So Ocasio-Cortez claimed that capitalism encourages “lawbreaking pursuit of profit” and that capitalism supports only “the very few,” despite the fact that capitalism has taken more people out of extreme poverty than any other economic system.
Ocasio-Cortez then revealed that her $93 trillion far-left strategy was really about “chang[ing] society” and “winning” in elections, and that the desired results were to correct “injustice” and encourage equality.
This is similar to what Ocasio-Cortez’s former chief-of-staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted during an interview.
The Washington Post reports:
Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” [Sam Ricketts, climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D)] greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” [emphasis added]

Ocasio-Cortez’s speech comes a few weeks after Greta Thunberg, a far-left environmental protester, delivered an even more radical speech while speaking at the United Nations, a speech widely condemned, attacked, and ridiculed by world leaders while at the same time celebrated by most media.
“My message is that we’ll be watching you. This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean,” Thunberg began. “Yet, you all come to us young people for hope, how dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words and yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering; people are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth.”
“How dare you pretend that this can be sold with just business as usual and some technical solutions,” Thunberg continued. “There will not be any solutions or plans presented in line with these figures here today because these numbers are too uncomfortable and you are still not mature enough to tell it like it is. You are failing us, but the young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you, and if you choose to fail us, I say we will never forgive you. We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now, is where we draw the line. The world is waking up, and change is coming whether you like it or not.”
