I actually think that Ocasio-Cortez is one of the dumbest people ever to run for (and likely to serve in) Congress.  Each day she manages to further demonstrate the depth of ignorance.  On Friday, she said that we can beat global warming by using the same methods we used in fighting the Nazis in World War II.

“So we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before. None of these things are new ideas. What we had was an existential threat in the context of a war. We had a direct existential threat with another nation, this time it was Nazi Germany, and axis, who explicitly made the United States as an enemy, as an enemy.”

So she just compared the threat of the Nazis in WWII to global warming?

Seriously?

Yes she did.  And she wasn’t done. Stand in awe of her vast stupidity.

“And what we did was that we chose to mobilize our entire economy and industrialized our entire economy and we put hundreds of thousands if not millions of people to work in defending our shores and defending this country. We have to do the same thing in order to get us to 100% renewable energy, and that’s just the truth of it,” she said.  “It may seem like really big, it may seem really ambitious, it may seem really ‘radical’ as us [inaudible] like to say. But the fact of the matter is we are dealing with a radical truth and a radical reality, and the more we choose to ignore it the worse we are doing by our children, and our grandchildren, and frankly ourselves.”

The Daily Wire points out:

Ocasio-Cortez did not address the fact that the U.S., a year after pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, is leading the world in reducing CO2 emissions while many of the other nations are breaking their promises to reduce emissions.

But that’s because she’s absolutely a moron.
