Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fired off a series of tweets Friday afternoon accusing Republican lawmakers of trying to destroy U.S. democracy in favor of a “far-right Christian theocracy.”
“To the GOP extremists trying to invoke ‘the unborn’ to jail people for abortion: Where are you on climate change? OH right, you want to burn fossil fuels til there’s hell on Earth,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist, tweeted to her 4.2 million followers. “If they were truthful about their motives, they’d be consistent in their principles. They’re not.”
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez went on to suggest that Republicans’ pro-life efforts are inherently racist and claimed that the party would support her controversial Green New Deal climate change plan if they really cared about minority children.
