Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) far-left chief-of-staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, admitted in a recent Washington Post interview that the Green New Deal was not created to protect the environment, but to implement socialism.

The Post notes that the admission came during an exchange between Chakrabarti and Sam Ricketts, climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D), who is a long shot running for president. The Post reports:

Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” [emphasis added]

Conservatives have long warned that Ocasio-Cortez’s $93 trillion “Green New Deal” is a trojan horse that is designed to implement socialism.

Tom J. Donohue, CEO of the United States Chamber of Commerce, wrote earlier this year:

Climate change is real and deserves our attention. But not every policy to address it can be taken seriously. Take, for example, the Green New Deal – a sweeping proposal to “save our planet” that reads more like a parody of the progressive agenda. No laughing matter, however, is the proposal’s ultimate objective: to give government unprecedented power over people’s lives and our entire economy. …

…Other aspects of the Green New Deal seem wildly out of place for an environmental resolution. Consider the promise of massive new entitlement programs that could only be achieved through a radical redistribution of wealth. Here, the proposal shows its true colors. This is not some run-of-the-mill progressive policy – it is a Trojan Horse for socialism.

The Green New Deal aims to upend our entire economic system, wresting consumer choice from everyday Americans and putting personal decisions – from the food we eat to the cars we drive – in the hands of an unelected elite. …

Even other Democrats have called out Ocasio-Cortez’s far-left socialist agenda, including Rep. Max Rose (NY), who referred to Ocasio-Cortez’s plan as “a massive socialist economic policy platform.”

A senior Democratic aide told The Washington Post that, in internal conversations, top Democratic officials have said that “they want” Ocasio-Cortez’s chief-of-staff “out.”

    So, “Climate Change” means economic takeover?

    “’Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?’ Chakrabarti continued. ‘Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.’

    Conservatives have long warned that Ocasio-Cortez’s $93 trillion ‘Green New Deal’ is a trojan horse that is designed to implement socialism.”

    This is the United Nations: Notice that they’ve figured out how to do everything; & now are going to equalize everyone with the New Green Deal / Sustainable Development. No Growth, no Loss. Business as usual; but more of it; & guaranteed peace because each government can steal what they can from the People.

    Search Soros with “Sustainable Development.” Also with “Pope, Israel, DrugPolicyAlliance;” & anything else that comes to mind. Remember that people like Chakrabarti & AOC will be the ones running these Socialistic governments. We MUST take back our SCHOOLS from the COMMUNISTS & MUSLIMS!

    Chief of Staff…..If that radical socialist anti American goofball is a “Chief of Staff” then I’m a Civil War Jet Pilot. I would have that goofball out of US Government office so fast it would make your nose bleed, and would make life so miserable for that air head AOC that she would beg to quit. Our American government must be free of that anti American trash.

    Several years ago, after working for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, Saikat Chakrabarti co-founded an organization called Brand New Congress with a lofty goal: Launch hundreds of progressive candidates into congressional races.Also a member of The Young Turks. Hence the T-shirt he wears.

      The t-shirt he wears with the face of the antithesis of Mahatma Ghandi. Some radical mental case that advocated violence, as in “kill them all”. This is who these psychos worship.

    What the Sam hell is wrong with our elected officials? Every last democrat should be ashamed of themselves for going along with this nonsense. And every republican should be very Leary and careful about how democrat carts will attempt to steal elections in 2020.

    The number one threat to this country isn’t the ragheads, they’re number two. The number one threat are the evil democrats. Frightening as hell that threat comes from the assholes stupid voters elect as our “leaders.”

    I think we all knew Socialism was the goal for all the Candidates on the dem dumb platform. The Green New Deal was laughable at best, stupid at worst…they should all embark on a voyage to Venezuela and get the first hard look at what they are promoting.

    That her Chief of Staff is a communist is no secret to me. Cause I listen to Russ Limbaugh and he told it several weeks ago. And Russ is 99.9% right all the time. Where the New Green Deal is concerned, I would never go along with it for the simple reason AOC introduced it and if she is for it, I am not! Plain and simple. She is not for anything that is good for America.

    We’ve fought communism and socialism on foreign soil and we’ll fight it here too. People come here to escape that type of government and these idiots need to face a firing squad for attempting to dismantle our government for their own selfish goals. We are preparing to take our government back if forced to live under socialist or communist rules. They have their crying closet and we have our guns so who would win the next civil war?

    AOC is going to change ZERO. Her Socialist ideas are as crazy as she and the Commie Bernie. What this idiot will get is a bump financially..from bartender salary to 175,000 a year the rest of her big mouth life.Just another reason these legislative aholes should get term limits with no goodies after they serve 2 terms.She will in all likelihood get primaried out and her own party will pay for it.She is as dumb as Maxine Waters.

    The question that comes to my mind is, ” has everyone taking part and falling for this bat-s..t idea of SOCIALISM gone completely bonkers?” Hopefully there are enough of those who DO NOT live in a world of rainbows, pixie dust, and unicorns going to be able to convince the nut cases to actually THINK? Unfortunately social media, psycologists, and sadly some well meaning parents have told the younger set they can get everything their parents worked like Hades for years to get . Mearly by wishing it so and being indoctrinated while acquiring the over priced paper from college and won’t have to work or sacrifice to attain it. They have been taught that all you need to do is be present to get the trophy you really don’t have to DO ANYTHING to get it. AOC and those like her live un a rainbow, unicorn world with no grasp of reality!

    Yes, they used the term “Climate change” to instill fear amongst the people so the jump on the bandwagon. Once there, they are “caught in a trap” as Climate change meaning weather is false. The climate they refer to is the “Political Climate” of the United States and then the World. It is beginning to happen in Europe. It was Soros, during WW2, sending the Jewish people to gas Chambers. It’s all there if you care to search for yourself. Also, DiBlasio, NY, has Muslim in his history. There is always a “silent” motive. Wake Up. Be Aware. Question and Search for Truth.
