As Twitchy reported earlier Saturday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that those criticizing her Green New Deal without putting forward their own plan to deal with climate change were just “shouting from the cheap seats” â and reminded them of who’s running the show now. “We’re in charge,” she said âŚ but we’re not sure if the freshman congresswoman was using the royal we, referring to her fellow Democratic Socialists, or herself and her fellow superstar colleagues Ilan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
Yup. If you donât like the #GreenNewDeal, then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis.
Until then, weâre in charge – and youâre just shouting from the cheap seats. https://t.co/h3KSJhHqDN

On-scale proposal? The one that would refurbish or rebuild every building in the United States and replace air travel with a national high-speed rail system? Ask California how quickly they managed to put together their single high-speed train to nowhere (that’s now canceled).
As we noted in the earlier post, a lot of people were unsure just whom she meant by “we,” but James Woods gave her a quick lesson on American civics and just who’s in charge.
So, you may have missed this, but the way it works in America is YOU work for US. The last time somebody told Americans to sit down and shut up was 1776. If you ever learn to read, look it up. You are not only a idiot, youâre an arrogant idiot, and there is nothing more dangerous https://t.co/5Hn8IoHFn8

Sit down and shut up? She’s telling Americans what’s acceptable to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; if you’re woke like she is, you have a banana and peanut butter for breakfast to save the planet. (No one tell her that fossil fuels are used to import bananas from South America.)
âweâre in charge – and youâre just shouting from the cheap seats.â said AOC.
âwho a few short months ago, from behind a bar, was asking if we wanted our martinis shaken or stirred, olive or twist. đ¸

No chance she was able to make a Martini!

There are few joys in life greater than people who believe they have power. What is one member of congress? I am going to enjoy watching the democrats turn on her and eat her alive.
— Champion Beako (@Bowsette19) February 23, 2019
Nancy Pelosi already “forgot” to put her and her “green dream” on the House’s new climate change committee, and Dianne Feinstein is trash-talking her Green New Deal to brainwashed kids. Who’s in charge again?
This tweet should be engraved on her office door

What is she in charge of? She is the face of what is wrong with the far left. I just hope she keeps talking.
— Joe Dunn (@Patriot_33) February 23, 2019
I say let her speak. The more she talks the more she pushes people to leave the Dems. I saw the liberal push years ago and left in 2014. Indy now. Will never vote for another Dem until they come back to the center at the least.
— Fran Russo (@RussofjrRusso) February 23, 2019
Haha, this response is exactly like Dianne Feinsteinâs that she is catching heat for! But apparently itâs okay for @AOC to say it. Even though both are arrogant and power hungry to say it.

AOC saying "we're in charge" should be alarming to everyone…. and I mean everyone!!!
— Derek Straub đşđ¸ (@straubderek) February 23, 2019
…"we're in charge…." should open everyone's eyes.

She has serious problems. She is a prime example of the danger of giving socialists power.
— Paul Bass (@majorgrunt) February 23, 2019
I don't know what's scarier. What she said or that 52k people liked it.
— Geoff Schatzel (@Motion_Art) February 23, 2019
James, they don't get it. And she's their leader.
— Jeez, not this again… (@Next__Pope) February 23, 2019
She took a liking to being in the ruling class rather quickly.

AOCâs already showing her totalitarian colors.
— Bruce Crawford (@BruceC76) February 23, 2019
I think we just got a little glimpse of her true colors and how she really feels about those of us in the "cheap seats".

Is she implying that people in the cheap seats shouldn't have a say?
— Brizz (@disasterix0) February 23, 2019
I served in the Army…is that a cheap seat? I earned my rights b****.
She has forgotten how she attained her position. She needs to be reminded that she can quickly lose it too.
— Kat (@01Kitkat01) February 23, 2019
I thought socialism meant that everyoneâs voice is equal. Reminding the peasants that theyâre just peasants doesnât sound very equal.
— Shireen Qudosi (@ShireenQudosi) February 23, 2019
What's funny (and sad) is that she thinks this tweet "owned" her opponents. She's a speed bump; a side show.

We have the same problem in the UK. Many public servants forget the second word of their job title too.

Somewhere, someone, is surprised that a 29 year old bartender is struggling with public policy while resorting to the millennial 'crutch' of victimhood when confronted by facts. Somewhere, someone still dreams the 'socialist dream.' Just not here.
— Keeping America Great Radiođď¸ (@RealEricBruno) February 23, 2019
What a tool!!! @AOC is so lost. Canât wait for her multi million dollar Netflix deal and book deal. Canât wait to see how much in taxes she will pay or if she will give up her money
— Q.D (@qsball31) February 23, 2019
Sheâs not dangerous. Just an opportunist. She wonât get anything done because her plans arenât feasible. She knows it, and so do the old guards of the party. Theyâre using her for the millennial vote in 2020. And, then theyâll dump her

There is no climate crisis. Unless she means the scam of it
— Joshua Emmanuel Isaacson (@aDrowsyPoet) February 23, 2019
As soon as she can agree there's an illegal immigration crisis we'll agree there's a climate one as well.
