Ocasio-Cortez: ‘You’re just shouting from the cheap seats…’
(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took an authoritarian tone Friday in response to criticism of the Green New Deal, and actor James Woods, an outspoken conservative, responded harshly, calling her an “arrogant idiot.”
Yup. If you don’t like the #GreenNewDeal, then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis.
Until then, we’re in charge – and you’re just shouting from the cheap seats. https://t.co/h3KSJhHqDN

Woods informed Ocasio-Cortez that the American Constitution does not put “in charge” whoever offers the most authoritarian, socialist plan for government control.
So, you may have missed this, but the way it works in America is YOU work for US. The last time somebody told Americans to sit down and shut up was 1776. If you ever learn to read, look it up. You are not only a idiot, you’re an arrogant idiot, and there is nothing more dangerous https://t.co/5Hn8IoHFn8

Twitter user @jakejakeny told Ocasio-Cortez that in America citizens fix problems, not politicians.
Regular Americans, not politicians, are working hard to fix our problems every day. Your job is to get out of our way, not come up with untenable plans & dictate them to us

Twitter user @ridgetactical warned Ocasio-Cortez that Americans are not willing to sit down and shut up.
Sit down and shut up huh..I guess she doesn’t know to much about history. When you tell American’s to do that or try to silence us is when we rise up in mass to oppose you. Maybe you should take a note from history ” I fear we have only awoken a sleeping giant ” Stand up now!!
