Captain Cortex saves the world in ‘video from the future’


Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez partnered with The Intercept to release a truly bizarre “video from the future” in which Ocasio-Cortez discussed how the United States came to accept the necessity of the Green New Deal and saved the planet from certain doom.

The video, titled “Art of the Green New Deal: A Message From the Future With AOC”, features Ocasio-Cortez narrating an artistic rendition of the United States. It begins with Ocasio-Cortez bragging about being part of the “most diverse” Congress in the history of the country, and goes on to explain the horrible danger the world found itself in when she was elected.

“We knew that we needed to save the planet, and taht we had all the technology to do it,” narrated Ocasio-Cortez. “But people were scared.”

She went on to place the blame for climate change on corporations and politicians who, in spite of what Ocasio-Cortez says is the obvious scientific understanding that climate change will destroy the world, “kept digging and mining, drilling, and racking like there was no tomorrow.”

“Entire species will never get back, natural wonders gone forever,” Ocasio-Cortez lamented.

She went on to again reference the absurd idea that the world has only 12 years left to address climate change by cutting carbon emissions in half.

“The leading climate scientists declared another emergency,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “They told us we had 12 years left to cut our emissions in half, or hundreds of millions of people would be more likely to face food and water shortages, poverty, and death.”

“12 years to change everything.”

The video then went on to fantasize about the “decade of the Green New Deal,” in which everyone magically started to agree with Ocasio-Cortez, and saved the planet from certain doom.

According to Ocasio-Cortez’s “message from the future,” she went on to inspire more diverse individuals to run for Congress, and ultimately saved the world, like some sort of Captain Planet superhero cartoon.  more here

  1. “you can’t be what you can’t see”. That applies to your future too hon, and I don’t think Nancy sees you beyond 2020.

    I don’t have 7 minutes worth of patience to watch this, besides I gave up on fairytales at age 5.

  2. Few things on the internet make me say WOW!
    This is one of those.
    Watch the whole thing, it’s worth it.

    The thing that stands out most is that a white (dare I presume) female artist can either only draw “people of color” or our future looks dark indeed.

    For fucks sake, even Rosie the Riveter is black!

  3. Until now, I never really understood the meaning of the words Vapid, Obtuse and Inane.

    Like a rabid, frothing animal some things should be separated from society.

  4. The fact-checkers who “debunk” every obvious joke in the Onion and Babylon Bee will studiously avoid challenging this imbecilic, self-aggrandizing fan fiction.

  5. she went on to inspire more diverse individuals to run for Congress, and ultimately saved the world

    We get it. You’re bitter about the accomplishments of white males in the past and do not want them to succeed, for the benefit of the entire world, in the present or future.

    Keep those able hands tied. It’s the only way to have your diverse group rise up.

  6. Notice that she never said where the money to give people guaranteed jobs, or retrofitting every building, and all that other stuff came from. And who would have thought that a guaranteed busy-work job would be fulfilling. Actually performing well on those jobs, or even showing up for those jobs, probably is not a requirement.

    My wife watched this last night and I listened. She figured it had to be a parody. She was shocked when she found out it wasn’t.

    The video was another barrel of leftist bovine excrement, along with leftists who say “Let’s ban hate speech so we can have true freedom of speech.”
