While the devotees of the left are gleefully dancing around the impeachment tree, a statement by one of their madcap crew has gone practically unnoticed in the subjective news media.
AOC, climate science expert, announced recently that Miami would cease to exist in a few years. What? Someone who mixed Moscow Mules for millennials in the Bronx can suddenly predict a major city will shortly cease to exist? Wow, this was pure ambrosia to the Trump-haters, a moment to pause and reflect on how gloomy the future is as they busy themselves fishing for those ever evasive high crimes and misdemeanors.
The definition of a few is two or three. We hear this every year but that doesn’t make it true. But, if we take AOC at her word, Miami will be under water from the effects of man made Global Warming in September of 2021 or 2022, right? I wonder if she is buying land in Hialeah to sell as beach front property?
In 1970, a Nobel prize winning Harvard biologist, George Wald, who studied retinal pigmentation, predicted civilization would end in 15 to 30 years unless immediate action was taken against global warming. Let’s see now, would that have been sometime between 1995 to 2000? Did he get that revelation from peering into people’s eyeballs or maybe like AOC, he simply made it up?
So what does a Harvard Nobel prize winner and a New York bartender have in common? Outrageous predictions and absurd statements to provoke headlines. Remember it was AOC last February who said climate change will make children’s lives so difficult young adults just shouldn’t reproduce in the future. Impressionable teens jumped on that. USA Today reported this is a growing movement with teens vowing to be childless.
Students were also pushed to skip school and demand action to somehow change nature. Just as leftists exploited young people in a staged walkout last year demanding gun confiscation, they are back at it again. Adults promoted this charade in spite of stories about it being the brainchild of a teen in Sweden. Activists know it’s big news for thousands of kids, driven by apocalyptic fervor, to be marching in the streets promoting the latest leftist cause. But the kids were not asked to sacrifice anything except a day off from school. Big surprise what they chose.
It’s nothing new to exploit children for a political cause. In 1212 a French boy supposedly had a vision which led to something called The Children’s Crusade. It’s estimated as many as 30,000 children left their homes in an attempt to walk thousands of miles across Europe to liberate the Holy Land. Many died or were enslaved and it ended in tragic disaster. So what will the next cause that provokes children to skip school, the wall, the election maybe? What will they use kids as props for next to advance their radical agenda? It’s not hard to round up a noisy crowd when you encourage them to skip school.
Actually it’s school walkouts, massive taxes and laws promoted by leftists we should fear not a tropical heat wave swallowing up Miami.
