Election 2020 Countdown: 393 Days (Oct. 7) AOC and “eating babies” for climate change?

Editor’s Note: This was proven a spoof by the Lyndon LaRouche PAC

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) is taking some well deserved heat for her grateful response to a crazed woman’s remarks that “we need to eat babies to save the planet” at a town hall meeting she hosted last week.

AOC’s responded with a series of “thank-you’s” to the same woman’s claims that “eating dead people is not enough.”   Ocasio’s actual comment: “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.”

Of course, AOC can be blamed for the hysteria she has caused by her claim that the world will end in 12 years “if we don’t address climate change.”  She made these remarks earlier this year, during Martin Luther King observations on Jan. 21. (See https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/01/22/ocasio-cortez_the_world_is_going_to_end_in_12_years_if_we_dont_address_climate_change.html). 

Interesting enough, these “end-of-the-world” comments made by Ocasio were refuted by climate scientists (as reported by Andrew Freedman of Axios) who stated that AOC misunderstood an influential report published by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in October 2018 which said that global warming could still be held to 1.5 degrees Centigrade or 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit if “net human-caused carbon dioxide emissions declined by 45 percent by 2030 compared to 2010 level, and reach ‘net zero’ by roughly mid-century.”

Kate Marvel, a climate scientist at NASA, said: “12 years isn’t a deadline and climate change isn’t a cliff we fall off—it’s a slope we slide down.  And even under a business-as-usual scenario, the world isn’t going to end in exactly 12 years.”

It’s these climate change alarmists fueled by irresponsible comments made by elected officials such as AOC that are responsible for millions of youth that walked out of schools on Friday, Sept. 20—three days before the United Nations climate control summit.

Yet, how far does this debate go?

Swedish behavioral scientist Magnus Soderlund has suggested that eating other people after they die; could be a means of combating climate change during a Stockholm fair regarding “food in the future.”

Soderlund is set to hold seminars at the event entitled “Gastro Summit” about the “future of food” where he intends to discuss the possibility of eating people in the name of cutting down greenhouse emissions.   However, he is concerned that “conservative attitudes” could “make it hard to convince Swedes to take up the practice of cannibalism.

Atheist Richard Dawkins proposed eating of “human meat” in an article published in the United Kingdom’s Independent newspaper in March, 2018 where he “touted the benefits of lab grown ‘clean meat’ and suggested something could be done with human flesh even though some would think this as ‘morally repugnant.’”

On Sunday, May 12. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refuted her earlier statement about the world ending in 12 years and the 29-year-old socialist mocked the Republican Party for taking her claim “seriously” and said her comments had been a combination of ‘dry humor and sarcasm.’

“You’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal,” the Daily Wire reported her saying.  However, Ocasio made these comments without laughing, earned a round of applause from her progressive audience and then emphasized the point by calling the fight against Climate Change “our World War II.”

Ocasio even repeated the claim and collaborated with The Intercept to create a video centered around her claim:  “Climate change is here + we’ve got a deadline:  12 years left to cut emissions in half,” she captioned a tweet promoting the video.

Why not agree with Ocasio and never take her literally?   After all, she is the 29-year-old socialist that the mainstream media has hyped and that is “calling the shots” for the Progressives and is overwhelming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Do we want the America that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez envisions?  I for one, do not!   Otherwise, we could all become flesh eaters for climate change?
