Video indulges bizarre fantasy that socialism will save the Earth

Freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) released a bizarre promo touting the hypothetical success of her socialist revolution, including implementing the Green New Deal and Medicare For All in the U.S.

The video, narrated by AOC and accompanied with watercolor painted scenes, explains a naive scenario where Democrats have taken control of all three branches of government, and have started to push their socialist vision for America.

“The wave began when Democrats took back the House in 2018,” she says. “And then the Senate and the White House in 2020, and launched the Decade of The Green New Deal.”

“A flurry of legislation that kicked off our social and ecological transformation to save the planet. It was the kind of swing-for-the-fence ambition we needed.”

“Finally! We were entertaining solutions on the scale of the crises we faced, without leaving anyone behind. That included Medicare For All: the most popular social program in American history,” she adds.

Despite the fact the estimated cost for Medicare For All would cost around $32 trillion, and the Green New Deal would cost about $93 trillion (more than the entire global money supply), AOC then explains how her plan to retrofit every single building with solar panels and construct trains all over the country would fix America.

“Funnily enough, the biggest problem in those early years was a labor shortage!” Ocasio-Cortez says. “We were building a national smart grid, retrofitting every building in America, putting trains like this one all across the country – we needed more workers.”
