Beto O’Rourke: Green New Deal is similar to defeating Nazis in WWII

On Wednesday, CNN held a marathon town hall with a number of Democrats running for president. It was on from 5 p.m. to midnight.

What was issue was so pressing and so important that a 24-hour news channel felt the need to devote a hefty chunk of their programming to covering and discussing? Well, climate change, of course.

Ten Democrats trotted out and answered questions, telling Americans what needs to change in order to give us more than the 12 years we have left. Or is it 10, perhaps 8 now?

At one point during his time in the spotlight Wednesday evening, O’Rourke actually compared combating climate change and the Green New Deal to defeating Nazis in WWII.

He said one of the things he likes best about the proposed bill is the language and how it sounds similar to defeating Nazis.

Yes, because defeating stopping people from world domination is the same trying to control the earth’s temperature.
