AOC Celebrates Drop in Oil Prices, Claims It Is Time for the Green New Deal

As U.S. crude oil futures turned negative for the first time in history, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) celebrated the news and said the time is right to implement the Green New Deal. 

In a now-deleted tweet about the news of the oil prices, Ocasio-Cortez said, “You absolutely love to see it.”

She continued, “This, along with record low-interest rates, means it’s the right time for a worker-led, mass investment in green infrastructure to save our planet. *cough*.”

Ocasio-Cortez quickly deleted that tweet and replaced it with another one that left out the “you absolutely love to see it.”

“Now is the time to create millions of good jobs building out the infrastructure and clean energy necessary to save our planet for future generations,” She said in a new tweet, adding, “For our economy, our planet, and our future, we need a [Green New Deal.]”

Later, she argued that the collapse in oil prices is “a key opportunity.”

“Fossil fuels are in long-term structural decline. This along w/ low interest rates means it‘s the right time to create millions of jobs transitioning to renewable and clean energy. A key opportunity.”

Oil prices in the U.S. plunged on Monday amid weeks of decreased demand for oil as Americans stayed home due to stay-at-home orders aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus.

  1. “Socialism and Communism are the same ideology.” Confused James The Projectionist

    I am confused.

    If socialism and communism were actually the same thing, why would there be two different names for the same ideology?

    Oh, that’s right. Because they are NOT the same ideology.

    See? Confused James The Projectionist is really confused. Don’t let him confuse YOU, too.

  2. Always Confused U-hurt:

    Isn’t Socialism/Communism (Fascism) the name of the game YOU have personally been pushing to destroy the United States politically and economically? Now you say “Socialism is for the rich. We are screwed”? Make up your mind. You can’t say one thing; but mean another – – or can you: to deceive the public of the real intention of destroying the US and remaking what remains into a Third World Socialist/Communist Shi**ole?

    “Socialism and Communism are the same ideology.”

  3. The oil and gas drillers are dying to dump their employees. The drillers are hiring lots of engineers today so that they can automate their drilling machines. Last September, they had their annual convention and that was when they announced that they want fully automated rigs (technilogical efficiency is the term that they use). Companies such as Continental Resources run by Harold Ham are donating small sums of money (only $500,000) to King Donald The Loser’s re-election campaign and they get billions of bailout funding in return.

    The companies will take this bailout money now and will resist rehiring people later.

    Socialism for the rich. We are screwed.

  4. You guys are confused about the GND. They DO have plans to pay for it AND come out the other end better for all of us for implementing it.

  5. All we need to add insult to injury is for some Leftist dipstick to begin a push for the Medicare for All fiasco to add more TRILLIONS to the stratospheric pile of debt.

    Communism is their game. Destroying America is their aim.

  6. This STUPID BIATCH still cannot tell us how to pay for the green shit new deal. Still doesn’t have a clue how people see through the FACT that she wants The United States of America to Fail economically to try to implement something that has FAILURE written all over it. STILL can’t explain how her policies will HELP America. Solyndra , anyone?

  7. Wasn’t the price tag on her Green Nutty Deal in the neighborhood of $93 TRILLION over 10 years = $9.3 TRILLION per year or 2.5 times MORE than the IRS takes in in taxes per year to fund Gov’t operations – civil service payroll, military bases and personnel pay, equipment, Federal debt payments, Social Security benefits, etc., etc.? What sort of drink has she mixed for herself? As a Marxist, she’s nuts (of course)!
