You’ve gotta hand it to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: When she finds a cause, she really sticks with it. How else to explain how she managed to turn a run-of-the-mill GOP-shaming tweet about illegal immigration into a plug for her ignorance-fueled climate change agenda?
Did you ever notice that the same leaders denying climate change are the ones drumming up fear and hatred against migrants? Check out our new video on why the climate movement must fight for migrant justice to win the world we want. Voiceover by @thandienewton pic.twitter.com/Tso18RmtMh

The far-right loves to drum up fear & resistance to immigrants.
But have you ever noticed they never talk about what‘s causing people to flee their homes in the first place?
Perhaps that’s bc they’d be forced to confront 1 major factor fueling global migration:
Climate change. https://t.co/zyJzTjEgHt

Wow, AOC’s nailed it again!
If you want to get a sense of what drives @AOC and those who support her, I'd urge you to watch the video she tweeted below. Often politicians filter what their supporters believe to make it more broadly palatable to others, so the attached video is… eye-opening! https://t.co/Az9pAcBP8t

She’s just throwing whatever she can find at the wall and hoping it’ll stick.
100% had to do a double take before responding making sure this wasn't the @AOCpress account. It can be hard to tell the diffrence.

It really does come off like parody.
I honestly feel dumber for reading that post

You’re not necessarily dumber for reading it; she’s just dumb for writing it. And even dumber for expecting us to buy it.

Honestly does anyone here actaully think this is serious?

?? You can’t be serious ??

We certainly don’t take her seriously.
I want to hear one specific example of an individual/family fleeing their country of origin due to climate change. And I'm talking humans, not polar bears.
This is absurd.

Yes, climate change has turned impoverished third world countries into impoverished third world countries.
