Ecofascists Use Kids as Pawns for Green New Deal

“You’re looking at the faces of the people who are going to be living with the consequences.”

Kids wearing MAGA hats = bad. Kids demanding leftist policies = good.

Such is the simple lesson Democrats want us to learn when they trot out teens and elementary children to parrot leftist propaganda about the issue du jour. Last year, it was the Parkland pawns marching for leftist gun control after the horrific mass murder at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. This week, it’s kids showing up to protest at various Senate offices to hawk the $90 trillion boondoggle known as the Green New Deal.

The Sunrise Movement specifically uses kids to advocate ecofascist policies because (A) as one kid put it, “you’re looking at the faces of the people who are going to be living with the consequences,” and (B) it’s always difficult to oppose what kids are saying without looking like an uncaring ogre. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) certainly came off as a condescendingly arrogant and grouchy old lady in pushing back against the rehearsed lines and phony anger thrust at her by a group of kids. See the video:

But haven’t we all learned by now to beware selectively edited videos? Clearly, we’re no fans of Feinstein, but the full video shows this to be a pretty amicable meeting of likeminded folks.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell certainly is aware of these tactics. He refused to meet with protesters, and some of them ended up getting arrested.

Finally, speaking of children with childish dreams, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the most prolific proponent of the Green New Deal, spent her first day on Capitol Hill back in November protesting with the Sunrise Movement outside Nancy Pelosi’s office. Pelosi later famously called the GND “the green dream or whatever they call it.” And that’s the same Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who said of the climate-change threat, “I think young people … have a legitimate question. Ya know, should — is it okay to still have children?”

Maybe it’s not a great idea to put national policy in the hands of people banging on highchairs — or the hands of children used as pawns by those people, either.
