Green New Deal Confusion

Here’s What ‘Progressive’ Students Think Of The Green New Deal

After learning what is actually in the Green New Deal, student who previously ‘supported’ the idea quickly backtracked.

'Crazy' Cortez's deal sounds good when you only hear the mainstream media reports, but when learning the real specifics, these students back off on support.

Last week, after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unveiled her Green New Deal, which is aimed at wealth redistribution using ‘climate’ excuse, she was forced to remove it from the website and backtrack claims after much mockery and derision.

In fact, it was so ridiculous that Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff said what was originally touted as the complete outline was merely a draft and that it was published by accident. Sure, right.

 

 

However, the plan quickly garnered support of 2020 democrat presidential hopefuls. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris both endorsed the outrageous plot that seemed more grounded in Marxist theology than reality.

The mocking of farting cows and complete end to all fossil fuel use within the next ten years was immediately derided.

Likewise, no concrete plans about who was to pay for the pipe dream were included.

Basically, it calls for the government to collect everyone’s money, then dole it out to workers and those “unwilling to work” equally in what appears to be a communist scheme.

And although initially receptive to the idea, students at the University of Miami showed just how ignorant they are about it.

“Wanting to know if the same people who support the New Green Deal would still support it after hearing what was actually in it, Campus Reform‘s Cabot Phillips headed to the University of Miami to find out.

“First, asking their original perception of the plan, students made it clear that they were on board.”

“I like that it’s progressive, that it’s gonna push the world forward,” one student said, while another added, “just from knowing who’s endorsed it and some other little things, it sounds great.”

One student had a more serious view of the plan claiming, “if we didn’t do that, we’re going to be killing ourselves.”

“I view it favorably,” another said, while one more added, “it’s definitely a great idea.”

Of course, the enthusiasm swiftly waned when the students heard the particulars.

In fact, their complete lack of knowledge about the plan shows just how carefully the media controls the thought process of the average American—those who do not carefully follow real news, that is.

“It doesn’t sound like something I would be behind,” one student admitted after hearing the details of the plan. Another added, “sometimes you need to take extreme measures to save the environment, but I think this is too extreme.”

“I think that’s drastic…” the next student conceded. Watch the full video below:
