Senator Cory Booker told a group of supporters in Iowa that the Green New Deal is like fighting World War II.
He likened the Democrats’ “Green New Deal” effort to fighting the Nazis and going to the moon at a campaign event in Mason City, IA.
Cory can have my burger when he pries it from my cold dead hands.
“Our planet is in peril and we need to be bold,” Booker said about the proposed climate change agenda. “There are a lot of people out there pushing back against the Green New Deal, saying it is impractical, it is too expensive, it is all of this. If we used to govern our dreams that way, we would have never gone to the Moon. God, that’s impractical. That ball in the sky? That’s impractical.”
“We are a nation that had done impossible things before,” Booker said. “My parents taught me to reach for the Moon, reach for the stars. Even if you come up short, at least you can be hovering above the ground, you can be soaring. So we need to be bold again in America. We need to have dreams that other people say are impossible.”
“We need to push the bounds of human potential because that is our history!”
“When the planet has been in peril in the past, who came forward to save Earth from the scourge of Nazism and totalitarian regimes? We came forward! Who came forward to save the planet, or continents, from financial ruin? We came forward with the Marshall Plan. Our history is standing up and saying, look, humanity is in crisis, America is going to be the light and the hope,” Booker said.
The first question I was asked in Iowa was about #GreenNewDeal. The hard truth is climate change has imperiled our planet—it’s going to take bold action now to save it including dramatic investment in green energy that will create the jobs of the future. We can do this. pic.twitter.com/zdU26AjcNN

There’s not one single aspect of our lives that the Democrats don’t insist on controlling. Not a single one.
Senator Cory Booker told the February issue of VegNews that he became a vegetarian in 1992 when, after a few days of trying the new lifestyle, he said, “Oh my gosh, I will never go back to eating meat.” He made the decision to go vegan in 2014…
The progressive senator doesn’t think veganism is just appropriate for his private life; he’d like everyone to embrace the diet because he believes the world can’t keep providing enough beef and pork to satisfy meat cravings.
“The tragic reality is this planet simply can’t sustain billions of people consuming industrially produced animal agriculture because of environmental impact. It’s just not possible, as China, as Africa move toward consuming meat the same way America does because we just don’t have enough land.”
In addition to convincing the masses to give up meat, Booker has other legislative goals that would interfere with America’s eating habits.
