How crazy have Democrats become?
So crazy that their believing outrageous theories coming out of the mouth of the bartender-turned-socialist-congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
As first reported by The Daily Caller, more than two-thirds of Democrats believe Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that “the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.”
But what’s disturbing here is that, her fellow Party members still believe her crackpot theory even after she claimed “you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge” to take her words literally.
It all began in January when the congresswoman made the claim…
“Millenials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?”
In April, after receiving criticism for her statement she made another bold warning “for everyone who wants to make a joke about that, you may laugh, but your grandkids will not.”
However, in early May, Ocasio-Cortez flipped her story to fit an anti-GOP narrative claiming it was “dry humor + sarcasm.”
This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it.
Like the “world ending in 12 years” thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal.
But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows. https://t.co/pmkwrdeAnq

But that doesn’t change the scary fact that a recent poll shows that an overwhelming majority take her claims – especially this one – literally.
In fact, according to the report, 67% of Democrats believe that the U.S. has only 12 years to aggressively fight climate change or else there will be “disastrous and irreparable damage to the country and the world.”
