Republican politicians and pundits just keep lining up to dishonestly attack new Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and it just keeps working out poorly for them. The latest member of the GOP to take on AOC in a battle of wits is the eternally witless Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and well, you can already figure out who won and who didn’t.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders went on Fox News and slammed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s climate change plan, saying “I don’t think that we are going to listen to her on much of anything, particularly anything that we will leave into the hands of a much, much higher authority.” This is far from the first time in which Sanders has severely twisted Christianity to fit her distinctly un-Christ-like political view, but rarely has it gone quite this poorly for her.
Ocasio-Cortez promptly fired back on Twitter with three Bible verses that spell out how God would actually want us to deal with climate change and the planet:
Genesis 1: God looked on the world & called it good not once, not twice, but seven times.
Genesis 2: God commands all people to “serve and protect” creation.
Leviticus: God mandates that not only the people, but the land that sustains them, shall be respected.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez then added “You shouldn’t need a Bible to tell you to protect our planet, but it does anyway.” Not surprisingly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has had nothing to say in response. It’s still not quite clear why so many prominent figures in the the Republican Party and the Trump regime keep taking on the same freshman Congresswoman. But it is clear that they keep losing whenever they try it.
