Seeing as Joe Biden 1) is president and 2) has made it cool again to read your speech off of index cards, Sen. Ed Markey is correct that this is your moment if you want to pass strong “environmental justice legislation” (if Biden hasn’t already signed an executive order) and don’t mind reading your statement off of a printout. To cap things off, Markey says it’s then time to pass a Green New Deal and admits it will change society.

You can’t expect these fossils to remember all the ingredients in the word salad, guys.

What do those terms even mean, beyond being political buzzwords!?

This should win an award for having the most woke buzzwords crammed into a single quote. Bravo!

you guys know you can't just add that word to any agenda you want to push through, right?
— Gogo (@GogoXBT) January 30, 2021
So, not kidding, what the hell is "environmental racism"? Are we just putting the word racism behind everything now and pretending it's a real thing?

Environmental "justice" and environmental "racism." HOW does anyone believe any of this gobbledygook?!?

Communism. Plain and simple.

He does say we need to pass a Green New Deal to “transform our economy.” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal certain was chock full of socialist ideas, and it managed to get zero yes votes in the Senate … not even from the senators who co-sponsored it.
What does that even mean? Watch your wallet and your rights folks!

Are you people starting to understand what's happening yet? It's right in front of your eyes. It's time to vote these people out.

Does he even have a clue as to what he is saying, because I don’t. Why doesn’t he just say, “ you will pay more taxes, and we will circle back for the reason why.”

And we’re going to reverse decades of environmental racism by creating good union jobs by banning fracking and halting construction of the Keystone XL pipeline? Quite the salesman.
