Ocasio-Cortez Arrives in Gas-Guzzling SUV to Lecture Americans on Climate Change
Progressive congresswoman faces backlash for 'hypocrisy' at SXSW
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez arrived at this year's SXSW conference to deliver her views on climate change, her Green New Deal, as well insisting Americans should be "excited" about losing their jobs to automation, in a gas-guzzling SUV, according to reports.
The progressive congresswoman, who seemingly talks the talk without walking the walk, arrived at the conference in Texas to lecture Americans about 'climate change' in a 'big gas guzzling SUV' according to Twitter user Antonia Ferrier.
Ferrier – a PR rep and “recovering Senate GOP flak” highlighted the liberal lawmaker’s hypocrisy with a picture of her getting out of the SUV.
“She arrived in a big, gas guzzling SUV. #GreenNewDeal #SXSW19” Ferrier posted.
Ocasio-Cortez is seen getting out of the vehicle holding a plastic bottle, along with her aides.
The congresswoman went on to lecture about moderates' failure to tackle climate change, emphasizing why her Green New Deal is a better approach.
“It feels like moderate is not a stance; it just an attitude toward life that’s like ‘eh,’” she said.
“But here’s the thing that upsets me is that we’ve become so cynical that we view ‘meh,’ or ‘eh,’ or we view cynicism as an intellectually superior attitude."
The video by “Mr. Reagan," which has now gone viral - titled “The Brains Behind AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez” shows those that actually may be influencing her from NY.
“And we view ambition as youthful naivete when … the greatest things we have ever accomplished as a society have been ambitious acts of visions,” she said.
“The ‘meh’ is worshiped now. For what? Like, for what?”
According to a report from the HuffPost: Televangelist Pat Robertson dismissed Ocasio-Cortez because she has “no particular education to speak of" concerning climate change.
It’s a strange thing when a young woman with no particular education to speak of, who’s had a career, I believe, as a, what is it, a bartender I think? She suddenly is making pronouncements about climate change. Now she’s making a pronouncement about capitalism. And the thing is, the media is following like she’s some guru from off of the Mount Olympus and she just doesn’t know what she’s talking about.
Even The New York Post reported on how the freshman Congresswoman hypocrisy due to the fact she does not practice what she preaches.
.@AOC’s critique of “moderates” is spot on.— Waleed Shahid (@_waleedshahid) March 9, 2019
Moderates are more naive than the visionaries if they think tinkering around the edges will solve systemic problems in our democracy and economy.

A column published last week noted AOC relying heavily on Uber, Lyft, and other services during her campaign, despite the subway station being just a mile away from her campaign office.
The 'climate change' advocate spent almost $30,000 on gas vehicles, and just $8,335 on public transport like the metro.
In Feb. 24 Instagram video filmed in her kitchen, Ocasio-Cortez railed against plastic grocery bags — then appeared to toss two of the sacks, which can be recycled, into the trash.
“It drives me crazy,” she said of plastic bags.
“I wish they didn’t exist.”
In the video, Ocasio-Cortez peeled a sweet potato while calling for a “universal sense of urgency” to save the Earth.
Last month, Ocasio-Cortez advised her social media followers to rethink having children, if her "Green New Deal" doesn't pass, due to the impact Climate Change will have on them.
Speaking during an Instagram live video feed while she prepared food, Democratic socialist Ocasio-Cortez said people should rethink starting a family because "basically like, there's a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult."
