AOC says minorities don’t like environmentalism because of all the “colonial” cauliflower…. huh?

In a really weird post on Instagram, the Democrats’ foremost authority on agriculture and everything says planting cauliflower is COLONIALISM and that’s why minorities hate environmentalism.

Huh?!

I’M SERIOUS THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID:

“What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx.

“So that’s really how you do it right. That is such a core component of the Green New Deal is having all of these projects make sense in a cultural context, and it’s an area that we get the most pushback on because people say, ‘Why do you need to do that? That’s too hard.’”

She went on to add that growing cauliflower in such gardens is a “colonial approach” and the reason communities of color oppose environmentalist movements.

“But when you really think about it — when someone says that it’s ‘too hard’ to do a green space that grows Yucca instead of, I don’t know, cauliflower or something — what you’re doing is you’re taking a colonial approach to environmentalism,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“That is why a lot of communities of color get resistant to certain environmentalist movements because they come with the colonial lens on them.”



WHAT THE EFF ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!?!?

Honestly, sometimes we go a little nuts on the right and pretend liberals are dumber than they are, or we exaggerate the dumb things they say, but in this case, man, AOC is just a moron. This makes zero sense. I have never, in all my time making fun of liberals, heard them talking about cauliflower as a colonialist produce. Incredible.

Is it because it’s white?

I guess we can add the Conquistador Cauliflower to the dastardly Dr. Garbage Disposal to the gallery of AOC’s greatest villains.

Why haven’t they made her speaker of the house? I am being dead serious, Pelosi is nothing by a figurehead and everyone knows the that radical inmates are running the asylum.

There is no reasoning with insanity.

My grandma was suffering from Alzheimer’s and became frantically worried about money, “…but where will we stay? We don’t have any money…”

My mom cared for her and assured her they had money and my mom had a good job. My mom paid the rent 3 months in advance just to prove to my grandma they wouldn’t be thrown out on the street. My grandma persisted with nightly near panic attacks.

One day, my sister went to visit. In the living room, my mom had stacks of 1, 5, and 10 dollar bills everywhere – thousands of dollars – in an attempt to prove to my grandma they wouldn’t become homeless. My grandma responded, “…but after this is gone, what will we do?”

Trying to rationalize insanity is an exercise in futility.

This woman is a snowflake, an ignorant snowflake. 15 states in our country passed a law that allows illegal immigrants head of household to make unlimited money and their family is sil eligible for all benefits. A family of 5, legal citizens, if the head of household makes over24,000 is not eligible for benefits. I personally know an illegal who bragged about making 200,000 the previous year and his family still is on government benefits. When iI at top the state in which I now reside, it took me almost 30 days to get my driver’s license transferred from my previous state. On my first day of attempting to get a license, 2 illegals came into the DMV and 30 minutes later left with their driver’s license. Theu couldn’t even speak English. I pointed this out to the clerk and she shrugged her shoulders and said to change my name… Read more »

Yucca ? They should grow Yucca in the bronx, because it isn;t colonial ?
These things she says here are non sequiturs.

“They are native to the hot and dry (arid) parts of the Americas and the Caribbean.”I guess you could grow it in the Bronx. But for what ?
It isn’t going to feed anyone, and it cuts your leg when you walk by. My wife planted it in our colonial garden. I hate it.

Newsflash AOC. Most all of us like environmentalism, the sane flavor. You know, don’t pollute our rivers and streams, smog control/air quality, fire hazards, conservationism. Most sane adults go for that. What you peddle is for the coked out idiots with bong resin rattling around in their skull.

When I was a little girl, I remember they started the “don’t be a litterbug” campaign. It made a big impression on me – you don’t throw your trash on the ground outside just like you don’t do inside your own home. It’s a lesson that really stuck, and I have lived my life never littering.

Remember the Tea Party rallies? There famously wasn’t any littering there either.

@nc checks and balances I attended tea party rallies in Minnesota as well as Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally in Washington, DC with over a half million people there. I can tell you that we left the place clean on both counts. In DC, they didn’t have enough garbage containers so you saw posters stacked up next to the garbage cans and the lawns were perfect (except they were a little flat from all of the traffic). As my kids and I left the rally in DC, we decided to go to the Smithsonian and came upon the stupid Al Sharpton counter protest. I’m sure those idiots didn’t respect the environment like we conservatives did. Hah! I saw video and photos of the Presidential Inauguration for Obama and there was trash everywhere. What a difference if you just pick up after yourself. I always know when someone is conservative or… Read more »

Well here’s another example of not being able to fix stupid. Many of the fruits and vegetables that are culturally familiar to many immigrants won’t even grow in their new communities. This goofball doesn’t even have a rudimentary knowledge of agriculture. She thinks agriculture is just sticking a few seeds in some dirt and “Voila!” she’s got food! And she can’t figure out why we don’t bow down to her as the Enviro-Queen of the Perpetually Green Thumb?

It bears repeating, AOC is merely parroting lines and ideas of her handlers, such as those put forth by Cornell University professor, Robert Hockett. The reason it doesn’t sound like AOC knows what she’s talking about is because AOC in fact doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

I think what she’s trying to say is that if you’re bossy (colonial) with some communities about enforcing your conventional notion (cauliflower) of environmentalism, they won’t accept it. You need to work to subvert them slowly and carefully by working within their culture (yucca).

but in this case, man, AOC is just a moron

Well, yeah. She’s smart enough to be able to keep her mouth moving and have words come out. She’s too stupid to have those words make sense without a decoder ring. And no, it’s not because the concepts she’s expressing are so difficult. I described her concept in plain English up above, and I haven’t had any coffee yet today.
