Saturday Night Live filmed a vicious segment portraying California Senator Dianne Feinstein as a kid-hating shrew.  Though this segment was cut due to time limitations, Cecily Strong plays Feinstein as a politician trying to talk to school children about the Green New Deal.  However, she keeps getting frustrated with the kids and ends up using swear words, insults, and anger. Watch it below:

I definitely am no fan of this ridiculous Green New Deal. National Review described the Green New Deal in this way:

First, the text of the resolution omits nuclear power from the proposal, saying instead that “100 percent of the power demand in the United States” should be met “through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources.” According to fact sheets distributed by her office, the Green New Deal “would not include creating new nuclear plants.” It goes on to say that “it’s unclear if we will be able to decommission every nuclear plant in 10 years, but the plan is to transition off of nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible.”

The article goes on to say:

Next, the Green New Deal veers early and often into identity politics. The resolution actually says the following race and gender issues are “related” to climate change:

(B) a large racial wealth divide amounting to a difference of 20 times more wealth between the average White family and the average Black family; and

(C) a gender earnings gap that results in women earning approximately 80 percent as much as men, at the median

Moreover, it declares that it is the “duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal—”

(E) to promote justice and equity by stopping current, preventing future, and repairing historic oppression of indigenous communities, communities of color, migrant communities, deindustrialized communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth.

This isn’t environmentalism, it’s intersectionality. And it’s intersectionality supplemented with a giant dose of income redistribution and economic populism.

That sounds pretty scary, especially if you are a Democrat who knows how to do math.  That’s why I enjoy watching the Democratic Party fold in on itself.  How will they deal with AOC?

She’s made it clear that she’s not playing by the rules, and she’s not going to be quiet.  As annoying as that might be for the rest of the nation, it’s particularly troubling for Democrats trying to appear relevant.

How far will they stoop to cater to their party’s fringe?

You might want to pop some corn, because this could get interesting.
