Extreme “Sunrise Movement” Makes AOC Seem (Almost) Reasonable

Extreme “Sunrise Movement” Makes AOC Seem (Almost) Reasonable

February 15, 2019

When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rolled out her ridiculous “Green New Deal,” many thought she was the brainchild behind the plan to fundamentally reorient our country away from capitalism and towards socialism.

And while Ocasio-Cortez has been integral to promoting this dangerous brand of environmental-socialism, there’s a potentially more sinister group working behind the scenes – the “Sunrise Movement.”

They call themselves an “army” that is at “war” fighting in the name of extreme environmentalism. They say the United States has become a “rogue nation” by promoting its energy industry. And they’re making the “Green New Deal” and its socialist takeover of America their signature issue.

The “Sunrise Movement” gained notoriety for occupying Nancy Pelosi’s office soon after the 2018 midterms to push for radical climate action, joining forces with Ocasio-Cortez. Senator Ed Markey, the lead Senate sponsor of the “Green New Deal,” even invited a Sunrise Movement troop as his guest to the State of the Union.

Now, they’re planning another series of disruptive actions to pressure members of Congress to support the extreme framework proposed by Ocasio-Cortez last week. They have their work cut out for them, with many liberals already coming out against the plan. Democrat Senator Joe Manchin just poured cold water on the “Green New Deal,” labeling it “not a deal. It’s a dream.” Likely 2020 presidential candidate and former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper says it should not be a litmus test on the left.

Who is the “Sunrise Movement?” Who is funding them? Should we be concerned that they are making inroads into our political process, palling around with Senators and House members?

It’s time for the media to investigate. There’s something fishy going on here.
