For the new breed of Socialist Progressives, who some call left-fascists, embodied in the like of Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (aka AOC D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhad Omar (D-MN), compromise doesn’t even seem to be an option.
Case in point: AOC and her so-called Green New Deal. Why is she so adamant about this and why have so many of the other liberals jumped on her bandwagon? Because a large portion of it reads like a Socialist Manifesto. According to the document posted on her own House webpage, climate change is responsible for everything from declining life expectancies to stagnant hourly wages.
The former bartender’s comments and nonexistent cooperative spirit is not limited to the Republican party, either. According to ABC News, AOC made the following statement about Joe Biden: “I will be damned if the same politicians who refused to act then are going to try to come back today and say we need a ‘middle of the road’ approach to save our lives.”
It’s becoming painfully obvious that the young guns who are beginning to attain positions of influence and power on the Left have adopted a “my way or the highway” outlook. Unfortunately, their highway is the same one that led to the Soviet Union, communist South East Asia and, more recently, Venezuela.
More and more, the Democratic party is starting to look like kids playing dress up while throwing tantrums instead of facts into the ring. Meanwhile, here in the adult world, the situation these children want is leading to an influx of immigrants and countries being torn apart. We’ll go ahead and take a hard pass on taking that path of destruction in the US.
You would think we could all be grown-ups about this, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. And the only difference between these tantrums and a toddler’s is that toddlers don’t have the potential to destroy a nation. Our country was built on compromise, so what do we do when our own representatives are trying to push us in a direction that has proven to lead to nothing but misery?
