An intervention at a town meeting on Oct. 3 in New York City
sponsored by the first-term Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), a poster girl of the “Green New Deal”, provided proof as to why it is accurate to call her policies and her movement “eco-fascist.” A young woman stood
up before the crowd and stated, in a voice of urgent dismay,
“We’re not going to be here for much longer, because of the
climate crisis.” Cameras and microphones closed in quickly,
eager to catch the unfolding drama.
“We only have a few months left,” she stated. “I love that
you support the Green Deal, but it’s not gonna get rid of fossil
fuel. It’s not going to solve the problem fast enough. A Swedish professor said we can eat dead people, but it’s not fast
enough! So, I think your next campaign slogan needs to be
this: We’ve got to start eating babies.”
The woman, in fact an organizer from the LaRouche Political Action Committee, then removed her jacket to show her
T-shirt with the phrase “Save the planet! Eat the Children.”
Turning to the audience, she continued, “We don’t have enough
time. There’s too much CO2. All of you! You’re a pollutant…
We have to start now. Please you are so great [addressing
Ocasio-Cortez]. I’m so happy that you are supporting a Green
New Deal, but it’s not enough. Even if we were to bomb Russia, it’s not enough. There’s too many people, too much pollution. So, we have to get rid of the babies. That’s a big problem.
Just stopping having babies just isn’t enough. We need to eat
the babies. This is very serious. Please give a response.”
Believe it or not, AOC listened intently throughout, making no attempt to interrupt or stop the organizer. She then responded, as though to reassure one of her supporters, that
“one of the things that’s very important to us is that we need
to treat the climate crisis with the urgency that it does present. Luckily, we have more than a few months.” She went on to say that “there are a lot of solutions” available that can be
The video of the encounter went viral, with over 4 million
views within a few hours, and basically all the coverage presented it as a serious (albeit extreme) proposal by a concerned young woman. Astute observers noted that not once did AOC say, “Eat babies, that’s crazy”. Instead, she reacted as though she understood the appeal! AOC is one of the Green fanatics who repeats the unscientific nonsense that the world will boil over in 12 years unless there is a drastic reduction of CO2 output.
She has questioned, along with other “co-thinkers”. whether
young women should have children at all, given their negative
impact on the environment.
The same astute observers realized that the LaRouchePAC
organizer was taking a page from satirist Jonathan Swift, who
ridiculed the population reduction fanatics in his day with his
Modest Proposal, urging that wealthy people buy and eat the
babies of the poor Irish, to protect scarce resources. AOC
missed the Swiftian satire, perhaps out of ignorance — or perhaps, out of sympathy with the proposal!

the environmental extremists allied with AOC, one must view
