There’s a weird campaign to salvage Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezes dignity after the complete debacle that was her Green New Deal release.
And part of that is a complete bold-faced LIE her policy advisor told Tucker Carlson:
Watch what happens when Tucker Carlson steps out of the conservative bubble and brings on an @AOC policy adviser who debunks all the conservative media lies straight to his face (spoiler: it doesn't go great for Tucker) pic.twitter.com/joDNXBBB7G— Andrew Lawrence (@ndrew_lawrence) February 9, 2019
SO what he says is that there are right-wing people online who doctored up lines in the Green New Deal that weren’t there. Now, unfortunately, he’s RIGHT, there are dumbasses on our side who just made up crap and passed it along. BUT HE LIED about which were which.
Jeryl Bier has been running this thread down ever since the stupid document came out:
Holy crap! This guy straight up lies! @AOC absolutely had the "unwilling to work" provision on her https://t.co/Q4YEUbndSm website and I linked to the Wayback Machine version of it here:https://t.co/CF8bG7zUii https://t.co/DbYZ12uOep— Jeryl Bier (@JerylBier) February 9, 2019
What he notes is that they’re straight up lying about whether the document promised “economic security to all those who are unable or unwilling to work.” I mean, that’s insane right? Pretty much a nation of people on welfare. Well they were so completely ridiculed about it that now they’re lying about where it came from.
They’re just straight out lying about it. And the only people who care are websites and blogs on the right. Incredible.
As an aside, that’s why once you see someone on the right continually lie and not correct their BS, QUIT repeating what they say – you give the opposition more ammunition to call us liars.
When your #GreenNewDeal legislation is so strong that the GOP has to resort to circulating false versions, but the real one nets 70 House cosponsors on Day 1 and all Dem presidential candidates sign on anyway https://t.co/BbHIn8cu0f— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 8, 2019
Finally, I have evidence to believe that this Hockett guy is not a real person, but just Hillary Clinton with a really bad wig:
