If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her unprecedented economic and environmental intellect and insight will be the savior of our nation, if not the world at large. Just like Christian teachings about how Jesus Christ was and will be the savior of the world, there are undeniable parallels between the two – which make them almost equivalent.
For one, when Jesus Christ came into the scene, according to biblical legends, he was shunned and tossed aside by commoners. He was the only one claiming to be the son of God and that through him, salvation would come. Everyone thought he was foolish, crazy, insane, no one believed his claims yet everyone would have been better off believing in his word, despite any supporting evidence or lack thereof.
According to the bible, it got so bad that Jesus Christ himself was tortured, crucified and killed for the claims he made – only to return three days later as the resurrected son of God. Had everyone believed in him, their souls would have been saved.
Fast forward a couple thousand years, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez enters the scene. She has ideas that people don’t like, she says things people hates, conservatives call her crazy, insane, no one believes her claims. Sound familiar? She’s a latinx woman who is shunned and tossed aside by the privileged patriarchy. How does the saying go? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice though…
We shouldn’t make the same mistakes our ancestors did. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is essentially the Jesus Christ of our time. There may be no evidence that her plans will work. Conservatives may systemically point out everything wrong with everything she says – but one must have faith. Faith that her intellect and insight will indeed be the savior of our country. After all, she is the only one who proposed the Green New Deal and through her plans, the world will flourish.
We don’t need evidence to know that what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is saying will work. We know in our hearts that it will.
