HomeNews WireOcasio-Cortez Once Blamed Climate Change for Grandfather's Death, Now She's Blaming Something Else Editor November 5, 2019 Liberals have this uncanny instinct to realize that all their problems in life are actually not their own fault, rather someone or something else is always to blame. Have you been turned down for a job? That's because of either racism or sexism. However, if you're a white male, then suck it up buttercup because you've sitting high on top of the patriarchy for too long already. That's what they say anyway. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently attributed the death of her grandfather to global warming. The "logical progression" here is that global warming caused the hurricane that hit Puerto Rico where her grandfather was, and even though her grandfather survived the storm, somehow it was still responsible. AOC isn't stopping there anymore either, now she's blaming white people for his death. The Daily Wire wrote, According to the socialist’s logic, “predominantly white” corporations and communities have set climate change in motion with their fossil fuel admissions; climate change apparently caused and/or amped up Hurricane Maria, a devastating Puerto Rico storm in 2017; AOC’s grandfather died in the aftermath of the storm, ergo: white people are connected to, if not the cause of, his death. “[T]he people that are producing climate change, the folks that are responsible for the largest amount of emissions, or communities, or corporations, they tend to be predominantly white, correct?” the 29-year-old asked during a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee hearing on civil rights and civil liberties, according to The Washington Examiner. AOC said, "My own grandfather died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. We can’t act as though the inertia and history of colonization doesn’t play a role in this." As far as I know, she's never actually given the details on how exactly her grandfather died. Nevertheless, she is certain that white people, probably males, are to blame for climate change, thus they caused the hurricane, the hurricane killed her grandfather, therefore white people are responsible.
