Democrat Socialism Must Be Taken Seriously

from Rush Limbaugh,

RUSH: I want to transition to the Green New Deal, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of her merry band that proposed this thing yesterday. I spent some time yesterday detailing this for you. And I have been particularly interested today and last night in the reaction to the Green New Deal by elements of the Republican Party and elements of the conservative media.

And I have to tell you that I think — and I hope I’m wrong about this — but it appears to me that we still have a whole lot of people who do not understand what we are up against. Now, I only understand it because I have the benefit of three decades of experience. This Green New Deal thing that they proposed yesterday is no more outrageous and no sillier and no more impractical than anything they have been proposing, particularly on climate change, for the past 30 years.

… don’t think for a moment they don’t believe this. They believe every word of it. They do not think it’s ridiculous. They do not think it’s funny. They’re not just saying a bunch of meaningless stuff for the sake of being true to some cause. They literally believe this.”

Now, let me tell you about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just so that you can keep some of this in perspective. And, yeah, I’m gonna deal with this somewhat seriously. I’ve had my fun with this for 30 years, and I’m telling you: That hasn’t worked. Not when the Democrat Party is being open and up front about what they want to do to this country. It used to be fringe. It used to be extreme. It used to be wacko. It used to be blatantly insane nuts.

Now it is mainstream, and they’re leading with it, and it’s who they are — and the reason they’re doing that is because they think they can win elections with this stuff. They do not think that this is going to be harmful or detrimental to their efforts to win elections. They think it is a fundamentally required aspect of their agenda, and not just the Green New Deal stuff. Printing money, all of the economic insanity, they believe this stuff. And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a whole bunch of “brain guards” — that’s what I call them — on Twitter.
