Rainn Wilson Had The Perfect Response To Fox’s Hysteria Over The Green New Deal—And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Just Responded

What is the Green New Deal?

Fox News would have you believe it’s a one way ticket to Soviet-era autocratic socialism, but in reality, the Green New Deal is a fourteen page plan proposing how to aggressively combat climate change.

It’s not even policy, it’s just an outline addressing the major points of climate change.

Fox News loves to play “focus on a joke made by a liberal politician as if it’s a fact for their entire career” game. Recently they took a joke Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the co-author of the plan, made about cows emitting methane and made it into an entire “farting cows” saga.

Rainn Wilson, who you may know as Dwight Schrute from The Office, addressed this in his signature deadpan tweeting style.


AOC loved this, of course, and responded:

Meanwhile, people who exclusively watch Fox News are reportedly less informed about the truth than people who do not actively watch any news whatsoever.

The Green New Deal operates under the assumption that we have limited time under climate change, and the political climate of the upcoming presidential, Senate, and House races in 2020 means that many are looking at climate change as a major deciding issue for candidates.

Meanwhile, time is rapidly running out.

It was 84 degrees Fahrenheit in the Arctic circle this weekend, the same weekend CO2 levels in the atmosphere reached unparalleled heights in all of human history.

Satire is fun, but it’s time to get to work.
