Do people drop cameras, in the fashion they do microphones? If so GOP House member Mark Walker can dump his Sony HD-Cam and stroll off stage.
Many have been scorching the sophomoric energy plan touted as The Green New Deal, courtesy of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It is such an embarassing piece of supposed legislation that Democrats are upset that Mitch McConnell wants to actually hold a Senate vote to get them on the record supporting it. (“This is great, off the record!” seems to be their position.)
While much mockery has been floating around it will be hard to best this one. Walker takes some of the best pull quotes from the GND and fashioned a promo reel, in the fashion of the infamous disaster that was The Fyre Festival.

In case you are unfamiliar, Fyre Fest was touted as the Millenial social music event of a lifetime. (If you want a primer, there are 2 documentaries on the fiasco on streaming services.) Fyre Fest was hatched by grifters, was a scam from the start, and became a disaster of immense proportions.
In other words, it is the PERFECT exemplar of the Green New Deal.

Question is, are people going to have to show up to the private beach party themselves in order to see what a dumpster fire this proposal is?
— DocHollendaise (@JDoc1969) February 13, 2019
In truth, most people see this for the disaster it already is. It is the oblivious idealists who showed up at the beaches for Fyre Fest…and who think this GND is a super idea.

The Green New Deal can work, and I know how to make it happen. We need just one man. pic.twitter.com/tHhELeQxzM

If you saw the Netflix doc “Fyre” you understand.
Well they both have meat off of the menu

Ha! Yes, we’ll all be reduced to eating Festival cheese slices on toast if AOC gets her way.
Why have a new ad? The classics still work https://t.co/0AfrQ3W9WR
No phones no lights no motor cars not a single luxury the New Green Deal… also no chance of rescue

The truth in here cannot be refuted.
The best way to know that Rep. Walker landed this shot is the level of anger he churned up by simply posting the video. The GNDers are not too happy with him.
So when Hurricanes and floods wreck havoc on your state, what is your plan to combat climate change? I’m glad all you jerks think it’s a joke. Jokes on you & your constituents when they lose everything.

This’ll be even less funny when a fourth of the state you represent is under water.

Remind us what your party’s proposal is Mark? To be the only global power to claim the scientists are all lying and climate change isn’t real? In case anyone was wondering why the GOP is hemorrhaging young people. We’ll take over what your party has destroyed soon.

Saying no to something addressing an absolutely vital issue and offering up no solution of your own is shit. Here's your chance to be pro-life vs pro-greed, put together a plan, let's see some initiative an backbone instead of this cowardice you are painting as bravado.
— Chris Enzo (@FallingEmpire77) February 13, 2019
So, because there is only one idea to address climate change we should blindly follow it??? That’s like burning down the house to kill a spider, because that was the only plan anyone offered up.
So infantile. But then what else would you expect from the GOP who blindly follows the infant occupying the WH. You can tell that the GOP are extremely afraid of losing all the $$$$ contributed to their elections. Puppets all. pic.twitter.com/rrkEIh4GwU

Because…opposing a childish proposal…means losing money…and it all has to do with…But Trump!
This will certainly inspire us to give to whomever you run against. You realize how many people aged 18 to 36 support a comprehensive green energy law, right?
— Andrew Principe (@aprincipe1) February 13, 2019
Do you realize how many people aged 18-36 have absolutely NO idea how they would pay for this plan??
You should be sued for false advertisement.

Just blantant lies – GOP lacks all integrity.
— Trey Brown (@cactuslawyer) February 13, 2019
Posting the proposals in this video as they appeared in the GND is “blatant lies”? I guess that sort of proves the entire thing is a scam from the time it was printed.
Dumb video. Getting rid of gas powered vehicles might be the single most important thing we do in the next 10 years. The U.S. has billions of $$$ of handouts to farmers via subsidies and to the 1%, but god forbid we try to save the planet and create green jobs. Fuck you, Walker.

If only a prior President had already dropped tens of billions of dollars on green energy and green jobs, then this country would be — we would be…
Well, we’d be exactly where we are today.
