Democrats are turning on AOC after she finally went too far.
Her Green New Deal is already ruining America’s economy and hurting regular people.
And one of AOC’s most prominent supporters has now turned her back on her.
Ana Kasparian is one of the co-hosts of “The Young Turks,” a very popular online left-wing show that is followed by progressives nationwide. She co-hosts this show with Cenk Uygur.
Typically, “The Young Turks” spend their time ripping on Republicans and promoting Democrat talking points, since that is who their audience consists of.
But Kasparian has been going off the reservation lately, and when California’s energy policies, modeled off of AOC’s Green New Deal, hit her in her pocketbook, she went off on those insane policies in an expletive-filled rant.
Kasparian started off by explaining the problem with the new policy. She said, “I know that in California at least with the phasing out of gas-powered cars, and they’ll probably do the same thing with gas stoves, is they just ban the sale of any new gas-powered cars or any new gas stoves. And so the technology that you have in your home, the gas stove that you have in your home, if it breaks, not only are you not able to buy a new one, but it gets increasingly more difficult to just repair it.”
Then she began her rant while Uygur nervously looked on, worried about what Democrat leaders might think about his co-host having this momentary flash of honesty.
“Don’t minimize the financial burdens associated with these things, okay? Because I am literally freaking the (expletive) out about the charging station thing. We’re gonna take out a massive (expletive) loan to pay for it. We’re not getting any help from the (expletive) government on that,” Kasparian said.
The “charging station thing” that she is referring to involves California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s decree that bans the sale of gas-powered cars by the year 2035.
Kasparian drives a gas-powered car, and she is extremely worried about the impact that this will have on her personal finances.
Her rant continued, “My issue is how we’re forced to make all these changes that are a financial burden and a giant inconvenience, with little to no help. And the solution from the government in terms of ‘no no, you get financial benefits for doing this’ is (expletive) tax credits. No, I don’t want the tax credits, give me the money. You give me the money, okay?”
AOC and Gavin Newsom have to be worried about this. Seeing one of their most reliable progressive supporters get this fed up with their policies and start ripping them on-air means that many other progressives must be quietly feeling the same way.
The Democrats have chosen to sacrifice the middle class in pursuit of their radical climate change agenda, and Americans are not liking it.
If more people like Ana Kasparian choose to abandon AOC and Gavin Newsom, they are going to be in big trouble politically.
