MTG Says That the Green New Deal Debate is Not Happening Because AOC ‘Chickened Out’

Last month, U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced that U.S. House Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) had agreed to a debate between the two Congresswomen on the Green New Deal, as long as Greene finished reading the entire bill.

Greene, who had originally issued the challenge, announced that she had finished reading Ocasio-Cortez’ “14 page communist manifesto” and was “looking forward to debating” her.

Apparently, that debate is no longer happening, however as Greene wrote in a tweet that she “just talked” to Ocasio-Cortez again.

Addressing the sophomore Congresswoman, Greene said, “You chickened out bc you are too scared to debate me about your Socialist Green New Deal.”

“You are also a hate-America terrorist sympathizer,” Greene continued, and adding that she belonged to the “#JihadSquad.”

Greene concluded by insisting that, “Members of Congress do NOT support terrorism & shouldn’t be afraid to debate their legislation.”

Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t responded, but she did criticize President Joe Biden earlier for a statement that he made in regards to the Israel-Palestine conflict that has recently heated up yet again.

Biden reportedly said that Israel “has a right to defend itself.”

Ocasio-Cortez said, “Blanket statements like these w/ little context or acknowledgement of what precipitated this cycle of violence – namely, the expulsions of Palestinians and attacks on Al Aqsa – dehumanize Palestinians & imply the US will look the other way at human rights violations. It’s wrong.”

“By only stepping in to name Hamas’ actions – which are condemnable – & refusing to acknowledge the rights of Palestinians, Biden reinforces the false idea that Palestinians instigated this cycle of violence. This is not neutral language. It takes a side – the side of occupation,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed.
