AOC Celebrates Oil Crash In Now-Deleted Tweet

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez deleted a tweet Monday celebrating a collapse in short-term crude oil prices as an opportunity to push for the Green New Deal.

“You absolutely love to see it. This along with record low interest rates means it’s the right time for a worker-led, mass investment in green infrastructure to save our planet. *cough*,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet recorded by political commentator Stephen L. Miller. AOC linked to a tweet reporting on the price of American crude, which plummeted as the coronavirus pandemic has obliterated demand.

“You absolutely love to see it,” Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described “democratic socialist,” wrote on Twitter. She was responding to a post which stated: “Oil prices now at ‘negative values,’ meaning oil producers have to pay people to take it off their hands and store it because when demand plunges (like now), that is less expensive for them than building more storage and/or shutting wells down.”

“This along with record low interest rates means it’s the right time for a worker-led, mass investment in green infrastructure to save our planet. *cough*,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. More

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is about as unAmerican as they come. Her arrogance and stupidity are absolutely staggering. She and the rest of the Democrats celebrate the fall of America as if they can build a better country than what our forefathers gave us.
