Remember when Al Gore was the face of the left-wing environmentalist movement in the United States? Fun times. We’re not sure if we’ve improved or not…but at the very least, Gore was presumably in the same room as others when public policy was being made at some point before he got all preachy.
The same cannot be said for the venerable New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who ascended into Congress right out of a bartending gig in her hometown. You see, she was just so bright and brilliant and there was no other reason why the Justice Democrats handpicked her to unseat the local incumbent — no other reason at all.
Then we have 16-year-old Swedish teenage girl Greta Thunberg, who wants us to stop eating meat and raise our taxes because climate change is making her cry. Look, we’re not going to dig too deep here — she is, in fact, 16. We could have plenty to say about her Antifa-supporting parents, however — that’s fair game.
Take it in, folks — these are the people we’re supposed to believe are forward-thinking geniuses now. We went from a former vice president to…whatever the hell these people are supposed to be. Amazing.
