At a townhall meeting with Rep. Alexandria Octasio Cortez, a woman rose to her feet and implored the congresswoman to make eating babies a priority as a way to low down climate change.
“Because of a climate crisis, we only have a few months left. I love that you support the Green Deal, but getting rid of fossil fuel will not solve the problem fast enough,” the woman said, in all seriousness, as she wore a shirt that preached “EAT THE BABIES.”
“I think the next campaign slogan hast to be we have to start eating people,” the woman implored. “We have to stop having babies. …We have to get rid of the babies, that’s a big problem. … We need to eat the babies!”
Ocasio-Cortez attempted to calm the woman down, saying that humanity has more than a few months and “we all need to understand that there are a lot of solutions that we have” to slow climate change.”
After the CSPAN video clip went viral on Thursday, a pro-Trump group called the LaRouche movement announced on Twitter that it was behind the political theater.
