Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ continued to come under fire this week, with the left-leaning Washington Post slamming the program as ineffective, unfocused, and unachievable.
“We believe such a plan can be efficient, effective, focused and achievable,” said the Post’s Editorial Board Sunday. “The Green New Deal proposed by congressional Democrats does not meet that test.”
“It’s also true that good intentions are not sufficient. There are a lot of bad ideas out there,” added the newspaper. “The Green New Deal that some Democrats have embraced is case in point.”
“Good intentions will not solve the global warming crisis. Massive social reform will not protect the climate. Marshaling every dollar to its highest benefit is the strongest plan. Our Green New Deal would do that,” concluded the board.

LIBERAL LOGIC: WaPo Reporter Blames TRUMP, McCONNELL for Anti-GOP Violence
Just hours after footage surfaced of former Attorney General Eric Holder urging his supporters to “kick” GOP voters, a reporter with the Washington Post penned a scathing article suggesting President Trump and Mitch McConnell were behind the recent rise of anti-GOP protests and the harassment of public officials.
In the article, journalist Aaron Blake analyzes Holder’s remarks and his suggestion of physical violence; writing “For the second time this week, a leading Democratic voice is proposing that the party pursue a meaner, more combative approach — with this one going so far as to allude to metaphorical violence.”
“Democrats as a party have struggled with just how much to adopt the kind of tactics employed by President Trump and Republicans such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.),” deflects the author. “Trump has regularly alluded to and even egged on potential violence at his rallies and encouraged crowds to chant that his political opponents should be ‘locked up.’”
