Kids confront Feinstein over Green New Deal

Kids confront Feinstein over Green New Deal

A group of young activists supporting legislation for a ’Green New Deal’ confronted Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Friday in a video released on social media. In the video, the students ask Feinstein to support the legislation. Feinstein is seen saying ’we have our own Green New Deal,’ while rebuking the young activists for what she called a ’my way or the highway’ attitude.

Absolutely appropriate action to take. Kids should not be used as political pawns and using them as such is immoral and dishonest. If you believe in something stand up for it and don’t hide behind children.

The "trust me, I'm a politician" might work on kids and adults with low IQs. The rest of us know better.

The Sunrise Movement should be ashamed of themselves for putting children up to that... Any way Feinstein reacts would make her look bad. Children are not meant to be used for political points ever. p.s. the green new deal IS unattainable, how do they expect to pay for everything? Increase dept a few more trillion, tax people to death, a magic elf perhaps.

I don’t like the exploitation of children under any circumstances. I can say though that her response is the thing I think about when a say someone is out of touch. Her job is to do the will of the people, NOT what she thinks is best for people. 30 years in politics doesn’t mean squat if you’ve been bought the entire time.

To my understanding, kids think 10 years is pretty far in the future and that we have plenty of time to apply the green policies and completely change the economy and the life style of everyone. While older people realize that 10 years is very short. You can't save the environnement in 10 years. Unless you go full authoritarian and mostly destroy your country's economy.

The kids are morons and she's an arrogant POS. Both of them talking straight out of their assholes.

I wonder if she knew what she was doing when she kept a Chinese spy as a driver on her retinue for 2 decades 🤔

I disagree. Most kids aren't very logical, "think" with their emotions, and are easily swayed. I'm not saying they can't partake, but most shouldn't, and don't want to. Also the same people who praise this Hated that the kids at the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting spoke.

There's a reason the phrase "child-like mentality" exists.

I told my 5 year old niece about the green new deal and she laughed and said that's not real.

There's a diference between not caving and being rude. While i imagine that i wouldn't like the deal she has in mind, I know I oppose the bs deal these kids are so emotionally invested in. She was firm and confident in her abilities. If anyone was rude, it was the chaperone and the kids. Constantly interupting someone while they try to explain themselves is definably rude. She listened to them until they started repeating themselves. she found they had no new/useful information and she gave them more than that back. Sucks to suck kids.

This feels so wrong. Those kids are being used as pawns, they look and sound indoctrinated. Its scary that teachers with a wild political bias are allowed to teach their students their own radical politics. Kids don't understand why things like the green new deal are retarded. They haven't even hit puberty, let alone have a job and pay bills and learn how the economy works (and why racial and identitarian policies think they have a place in an environmentalism deal)
