This will be a short post but we kind of love this video — it reminds us why we’re so opposed to the Democrats’ call to lower the voting age to 16. We also love the girl’s “12 Years” T-shirt, which will still be safely in the bottom of a dresser drawer 12 years from now, untouched by rising sea levels.
Notice as well how the Sunrise Movement is going on tour to promote the Green New Deal, which not even its cosponsors voted for, so good luck getting that passed.
We also like the way they say they’re “bringing the Green New Deal to every town in America” — if you count nine cities as “every town in America.”
The fight for a #GreenNewDeal won't be won in closed door meetings in Washington, DC—it'll be won when millions of us mobilize across America to demand the future we deserve 🌄#Road2GND tour kicks off in just over a week– get your tickets now at https://t.co/3qx6b4Cd3m! pic.twitter.com/fFkhGnc8t0

The logo for their tour is pretty cool if you’re into Soviet Realism.
The #GreenNewDeal guarantees a good job, clean air and water for all. We will ensure a just transition for fossil fuel industry workers. Instead of building pipes to pump oil, we can build pipes to provide clean water for Flint and the 63 million other Americans who lack it.

Did we mention the Senate held a vote on the Green New Deal, where it failed 0-57, with 43 Democrats voting “present”? But you mobilize, you crazy kids!
I wonder which means of transportation the Sunrise Movement will use to travel to all these cities 🤔 pic.twitter.com/2WSpZns3Jk

Unreal these elitist hypocritical ignorant Neo Marxists are still trying to promote the Green Dead Deal. I guess the Justice Democrats real goal is to raise the profile AOC and future candidates who will run on this fantasy deal for the house.

Someone tell these kids that the Green New Deal is dead; the Green Real Deal is the new hotness.
