The Sunrise Movement sounds like a third world communist cult that slits the throats of the bourgeois in their sleep. It is actually a group of high school students who really, truly believe we only have twelve years left to save the planet or we are all going to die.
So yeah, you can totally see how they might jump to Shining Path style guerrilla terrorism eventually to kill anyone who stands in their way and overthrow the government. But it’ll be for the greater good.
In the meantime, they’re just opposed to any and all compromise on the Green New Deal, which means it is never going to happen and that is a good thing.
In this very revealing clip from CBS News, however, what you will soon realize is that the Green New Deal is not about saving the planet in the next twelve years. It is about killing capitalism and imposing socialism. That is why so much of the green movement is really just red — after the fall of the Soviet Union, a lot of the paid communist agents in the United States went into the environmentalist movement as another way to undermine capitalism.
It all comes on in this video of a creepy teen on TV who demands federal jobs guarantees, labor union rights, and indigenous people’s right as a way to…ummm…save the planet?!
As a bonus, hear the CBS News reporter posit that Obamacare passed as a bipartisan compromise.
