AOC Supporter Suggests "Eating Babies" to Save The Planet

Oct 04, 2019 12:40PM ● By Flint Zerangue, Sr.

Eat the babies...???

In what felt like a scene from the 1973 futuristic thriller Soylent Green, where Charlton Heston discovers that the most popular governmentally supplied food source in the year 2020 (Soylent Green), is made out of people--on Monday, during a town hall meeting Monday in Corona, New York, an unidentified audience member and supporter of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) stepped up to the microphone and compassionately told the freshman legislator that her next Green Deal slogan should be, “WE HAVE TO START EATING PEOPLE…” She also stated that “…even if we blew up Russia, it wouldn’t kill enough people to save the planet…

The lady was quietly escorted away by officials, leaving me with a few questions.

Was she serious? If so, I hope she receives proper treatment for her mental illness.  

Or, was this some sort of twisted prank? Eat the Babies... Really!!!

Either way, the video is disturbing.

What are your thoughts?
