RUSH: Tom Cotton. Senator Tom Cotton from Arkansas “says the media was ‘Stalin-like'” in its cover-up of the Green New Deal and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, when she’s out there saying that it’s “a life-and-death issue.” “Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton unloaded on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal and said the media were ‘complicit’ in burying the most radical parts of the deal.”
Cotton was on the radio “on Tuesday and discussed the widely ridiculed Green New Deal that aims to implement sweeping changes across the nation. For her part, Ocasio-Cortez has called the Green New Deal ‘a life-and-death issue’ and has attacked the Republican Party on climate change.” In a classic example of fearmongering! These people — and Cotton’s right. This is Stalinist-like tactics, not just from the media but from the left in general.
“U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, (Democrat-New Jersey), had a fiery exchange with a reporter on Capitol Hill on Wednesday when asked to comment on the Green New Deal. Henry Rodgers, the Daily Caller’s Capitol Hill reporter, approached the senator at a subway station and asked him if he supported Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s legislative proposal. Menendez avoided the question and asked where Rodgers worked.
“Rodgers said that when he told Menendez he worked for the Daily Caller, the Democrat responded by saying he would not answer any questions. An intern who was with Rodgers asked a follow-up question, and tensions … rose. ‘I am wondering why you won’t answer questions on the Green New Deal?’ Rodgers asked. ‘I won’t answer questions to the Daily Caller, period! You’re trash,’ Menendez responded. ‘Why do you think we’re trash, sir?’ the reporter followed.
“‘Don’t keep harassing me anymore or I’ll race to the Capitol Police,'” Menendez said. This guy’s talking to a journalist intern from Chatsworth Osborne Jr.’s website, The Daily Caller! He’s an intern and a United States senator threatened to call the cops on the guy all because they’re asking him about the Green New Deal. The reporter “told Fox News he had no prior interaction with Menendez and was working on a story that was to include the responses of Senate Democrats regarding the Green New Deal.”
