Critics say AOC is using soviet-era style posters to promote Green New Deal

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has come under fire after she was accused of promoting communist-style propaganda posters to support her $93 trillion Green New Deal, according to reports.

"Surprise! I am thrilled to announce the launch of our #GreenNewDeal art series with custom Bronx & Queens GND posters," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

"The Bronx edition poster will be given for free as a limited release to the public at our Pelham Bay Nature Day & Backpack Giveaway in the Bronx tomorrow."

The tweet included posters that eerily resembled Soviet-era propaganda, according to critics.

"These posters push us to imagine our future with a Green New Deal in two of our beloved NY-14 parks: Pelham Bay & Flushing Meadows. All our #GND posters are made in the US, union-printed & will be available for purchase soon, but available at organizing events now," Ocasio-Cortez added.

"Bronx & Queens art is where we’re starting, but we aspire to release custom #GreenNewDeal art for local communities across America. We are also working on a line of GND reusables! The first 250 prints will be released at Family Nature Day tomorrow, where we’re doing park tours."

But some of the reactions to the posters were probably wasn't what she was expecting:

"This looks awful similar to Soviet era propaganda," Pradheep J. Shanker tweeted, adding: "Just saying."

Jeryl Bier tweeted: "I wonder if it was a conscious decision to use a World War I Victory memorial as the centerpiece for @AOC's #GND poster?"

Charlie Kirk tweeted: "Why does this seem like something the Soviet Union would post throughout the Red Square?"

Derek Hunter tweeted: "Communists, fascists, and socialists love their posters. People may suffer and die, but there will be state-sanctioned 'art.'"

Tom Rogan tweeted: "These posters have a weirdly Soviet/Maoist/NoKo quality to them."

Jon Nicosia tweeted a photo of Soviet propaganda and wrote: "Similar vibe."

The news comes days after AOC defended her right to block Twitter users with opposing views, arguing "harassment is not a viewpoint.”

The Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University called AOC's blocking "unconstitutional" and urged the freshman congresswoman to stop barring users with opposing viewpoints.

AOC responded: “I have 5.2 million followers. Less than 20 accounts are blocked for ongoing harassment. 0 are my constituents,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
