Chip Roy wants to make sure Ocasio-Cortez isn’t late for the SXSW, says she better ‘start walking.’
As Republican Texas Rep. Chip Roy pointed out, in order to help the Green New Deal’s sweeping objectives, Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would need to walk to the SXSW conference, which would take 21 days, according to the attached Google Map below.

Republican Texas Rep. Chip Roy reminded Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday that she better get started on her walk from Washington, D.C., to Austin for South by Southwest’s (SXSW) 2019 conference in an apparent nod to the Green New Deal’s net-zero greenhouse gas emissions goal.
“Hey [Ocasio-Cortez], glad you’ll be joining in Austin in #Tx21 for [SXSW] — but if you want to get there timely, you gotta start walking!” Roy tweeted.
The self-proclaimed Democratic socialist was added to the list of SXSW speakers in January to discuss “privacy, mass surveillance, foreign influence campaigns and the spread of propaganda,” according to the conference’s website. SXSW is held annually in Austin, Texas, where it celebrates “the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries.”
Ocasio-Cortez is a frequent critic of climate change and is notable for her rhetoric on the issue. More
It amazes me how she has been promoted to an expert on all things. She is an idiot. Anything she says or writes that is even marginally intelligent is fed to her.
She will fly there on a big old jet plane! Just like all liberals she’s a hypocrite in the truest sense of the word.
Twitter chimes in:
Now that’s an #InconvenientTruth.

Just realized that #sxsw is the same time as Houston rodeo. IF she flies, she may connect in HTX. Lots of farting cows during that time Oh My

Well maybe she could get there faster by riding a cattle — oh wait, nevermind. They’d be banned too

Wait! The horse may omit to much methane for our ozone to handle. Back to “hoofing” it on her own two feet!

Shame! Do you know how much carbon is used to manufacture a bicycle, transport it to distribution, and then to the end user? She needs to hoof it.

Our elected politicians (the DC elite) get planes, just not the rest of us plebes. Just ask Al.
