She promised grassroots activism, but this is ridiculous.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has taken aim at cauliflower, claiming that growing the vegetable in community gardens in non-white neighborhoods is an act of colonialism.

“When someone says that it’s ‘too hard’ to do a greenspace that grows yuca instead of, I dunno, cauliflower or something, what you’re doing is you’re taking a colonial approach to environmentalism,” the 29-year-old freshman congresswoman said in an Instagram video for her proposed Green New Deal economic stimulus package.

“And that is why a lot of communities of color get resistant to certain environmentalist movements — because they come with a colonial lens on them.”

Yuca is another name for the subtropical cassava root native to South America.

The tuber is not native to New York — making planting it here also an act of colonization.

There are no rules against growing it in New York City, and it was not clear whom she was referring to who claimed it is “too hard” to do so.

It “requires a warm humid climate,” according to the US Department of Agriculture.

“Temperature is important, as all growth stops at about [50ºF]. Typically, the crop is grown in areas that are frost free the year round,” according to materials from the agency.

Ironically, AOC talked up the Swiss chard, spinach and collard greens she is growing in another video — even though none of those are native to North America, and collards are actually part of the same family as cauliflower, Brassica oleracea.

She's right, planting non native plants fucks things up for the environment.

And yet she says to plant a Minority Plant (fucking hell that's actually a thing to these people) even though it also doesn't belong where she says to plant it.

Fuck me when is God going to skull fuck the USA with a large enough meteor that it pops Yellowstone and sends tremors through the San Andreas fault. Then the useless old sky cunt can roll over and fart some hurricanes down south and just annihilate this clown country.

No, she's saying that only growing food staples from one culture in a multicultural society is wrong, not that it's wrong to plant cauliflower. Goddamn are you really this retarded or just pretending?
>>
>>401595
She says it's colonialism to grow what you want instead of what the diversity czars say you should be growing.
>>
She's only 29?

I thought this mentally retarded mutt was in her 40's, she looks fucking hideous.
>>
>>401595
Why is it bad if people from a culture grow their own culture's staple foods? Why is a vegetable of Mediterranean origin racist? Because of it's color? Is AOC just another Russian troll trying to drive people away from the Democrats?
Since when does anyone from New York know the first thing about gardening? Where do those people get such a massive and baseless sense of entitlement?

I love her boobs.

Human embodiment of Dunning Krueger syndrome, every bit as bad as Trump or Hillary.
Unfortunately for the rest of us, that makes her presidential material for sure.

She's right. Lol at this boomer and his sperging.
>>
>>402155
Not only is she right but she is also making the same argument for why redneck boomers are distrustful of environmentalists.
Same principle. Liberal city fags telling rural communities how they should manage their land.
In principle, science can help make agriculture more sustainable, but liberal city fags are often out of touch and don't care at all about rural culture.
So for example, if they see that a practice is harmful in some way, they immediate default to banning it outright even though it is often times not necessary to have such harsh measures. But these liberal city fags have no sympathy for rural life so they don't care if they are banning a life style that has existed for centuries.

She's raging against out of touch libshits, but the boomer retard who posted this thread is too low IQ to understand that.

What a deranged spic mongrel, Yucca tastes like ass, besides it won't survive in the northeast.

Stop bumping threads with nonsense that haven't had a real reply in 3 days, get the fuck off this board.

What are her approval ratings? How much legislation has she actually been involved in? Asking because I'm genuinely curious how popular she is outside of daily headlines.
>>
>>403480
Fuck you nigger.
>>
>>401508
But yuca is not native to NYC?
>>
>>401735
Because if you're trying to grow a culture plant in a community garden, it's a good idea to stay away from plants which will die before harvest. That's just selfish, because you're wasting a garden plot that somebody could be using to feed their family.
