Are you really that uninformed?
Insinuating that I’m “uninformed” was uncalled for. I trust that you’ll have the decency to retract that, right?

I was addressing the fact that you brought up the AOC commenting on whether to have kids and providing a link that said nothing about that, and then accusing me of dishonesty when I called you on that. I trust you’ll retract that as well, right?

It was discussed and cited on pages 10 and 11, of which you were a participant. I cited the additional comment where she said the world would end in 12 years if climate change didn't change.

And at no time did I say that I was unaware of what she said. I was addressing your duplicity in bringing up the issue but providing a link that did NOT address it. You won’t even say something like, oops, my bad.

Here is what this kind of right wing outrage demonstrates.

They are too busy attcking the “librel” strawman to worry about the actual facts. They want to present this as New York “leftists” prohibiting the eating of meat when it is really about a school system trying to make free lunches a little healthier for the kids by only serving meat on 4 out of 5 days of the week.

Yeah. All of my doctors advocate less meat. More fish and vegetables. I'm still an omnivore, but I try to balance it.

I have to chuckle at people who are afraid of confronting healthy eating options.
What your doctors and the city of NY are talking about is perfectly reasonable and people are losing their minds over it. I find it mind blowing.

You are being dishonest here.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wonders whether Americans should stop having children in the face of climate change


"Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York suggested this weekend that it may not be ethical to have children, given the difficulties that climate change will likely cause in the years to come.

In a live stream on her Instagram, Ocasio suggested to her 2.5 million followers that the answer was not clear. “There’s 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 OK to still have children?” she asked."
I find that a perfectly legitimate question. If I was a young person I'd have to think long and hard about it.

Now you’re the one being dishonest. The link in this post op is not the same link in your previous post, where you said, “AOC said it was immoral to introduce children into an environment apocalypse that is imminent. And imminent being 12 years.” The link in that post said nothing about AOC wondering if it was ok to have kids, even though that was the gist of your comment. Therefore, you were being dishonest, not me. Your apology is accepted.
That's a favorite right wing debate tactic.
