Partial transcript via The Daily Wire:
“So we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before.”
“And what we did was that we chose to mobilize our entire economy and industrialized our entire economy and we put hundreds of thousands if not millions of people to work in defending our shores and defending this country,” she stated. “We have to do the same thing in order to get us to 100% renewable energy, and that’s just the truth of it.”
Who wants to tell her?
uh – besides resolve, the Nazis were defeated by petroleum, steel and explosives.

WAIT! Why doesn't Occasionally-Cogent think that COMMUNISM was an existential threat? The Cold War? Because Reagan didnt seize control of the economy to fight it.
Why doesnt Occasionally-Cogent think TERRORISM is an existential threat? Because GWBush didnt seize control either.

The projected price tag for Ocasio-Cortez’s massive mobilization against global warming might make the cost of her other proposals pale in comparison.
She couldn't read a friggin blueprint much less draw one up if her life depended on it. Keep it up honey. You're the blueprint for the Red Wave.
