Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) slammed the mainstream media for for burying the most egregious proposals in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal “frequently asked questions” (FAQ) document, Fox News points out.
In an interview on the Hugh Hewitt Show, the Senator discussed the Green New Deal at length and what it would mean for the United States.
In particular, Cotton was disturbed at how the media was “complicit” in covering up some of the most outrageous parts of the radical plan as outlined in the FAQ document released onto the Congresswoman’s website; specifically where it promises to provide jobs for every person in the United States and where it suggests the government will provide “economic security” for those “unwilling” to work.
A few hours after the FAQ document made its debut on the Ocasio-Cortez’s website, it was removed and directed to a “404 error” page.
“I understand the Democrats that proposed this immediately tried to retract that white paper that went along with their resolution,” Cotton said. “And too many people in the media have been complicit in the Stalin-like or 1984 technique of disappearing it, sending it down the memory hole.”
Cotton said the Green New Deal is exactly what Democrats desire for the country.
“But this is where their heart lies,” he said. “They believe that Americans driving around in trucks on farms, or commuting from the suburbs where they can have a decent home into the city to work are a fundamental threat to the world, and they have to have the power and the control of those Americans’ lives to implement their radical vision for humanity.”
