The Democrats let the cat out of the bag, and now it’s clawing them in the face. The unruly mobs they mobilized to help them win control of the House of Representatives are now setting their sights on Democratic leaders.
Nearly 150 people were arrested recently outside the offices of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., while holding a protest to demand radical action on climate change. The same group that organized the rally, the Sunrise Movement, was also behind another protest last month attended by incoming socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, at which 51 activists were arrested.
The protesters are demanding the impossible from Pelosi: a “Green New Deal” that aims to achieve 100 percent renewable energy in 10 years. Ocasio-Cortez, one of the plan’s most prominent champions, envisions it being similar in scope to “World War II or the Marshall Plan,” predicting it will cost “trillions” of dollars.
