Franklin Graham Takes Aim At AOC's "Absurd" Green New Deal

March 04, 2019Mar 04, 2019

Don't take away Franklin Graham's hamburgers. Or his religious freedom. That's the message resounding loud and clear from his recent Facebook post. The outspoken evangelist was not afraid to tell his audience that the Green New Deal is founded by socialist Democrats who want to take all of Americans' freedoms.

Leading the charge for the freedom-capping, socialist agenda is Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a millennial favorite. The young politician recently instructed millennials to reconsider ideas about having children, as it would further burden the environment.

“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don't turn this ship around and so it's basically like there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult. And it does lead young people to have a legitimate question: is it okay to still have children?" she asked on Instagram Live.

Graham took aim at her New Green Deal, warning people that socialists like AOC want to dictate every move Americans make, from what they eat to how many children they have.

"I was just reading an article on BBC News saying that the Green New Deal that some socialist Democrats want to force on us might take away our hamburgers and cheeseburgers," said Graham. "Hey, I love everything about McDonald's! And when I go to the West Coast, I can’t wait to get to In-N-Out Burger!"

"I don’t know the details of the Green New Deal, but I can tell you that socialism and the radical far-left agenda would take away far more than America’s hamburgers! If they had their way, socialists would try to dictate and control every aspect of our lives by their arbitrary agenda, from the weighty to the absurd. And all at the expense and disrespect of our freedoms and Judeo-Christian foundation," ended Graham in his bold post.

Commenters were equally put off by the socialist agenda of the New Green Deal and AOC.

"This is about a complete take over on Society," One commenter declared. "When people set back and do nothing, this is what happens. They have been slowly implementing things into law. Cortez is not a miracle or even really won her seat in Congress. She was placed and seated to sell this agenda to the next generation. She didn't come up with Green New Deal, which is essentially, Agenda 21. She is being paid to sell it to you and your kids. Such a sweet young girl. Who can't trust that face? Beware!"

"Why does the government decide what is best for us?" another commenter asked. "My mother taught me to eat everything. She lived to be 98. I have to watch what I eat because of heart disease. I still am allowed to have hamburgers at times. I love cheeseburgers."
