I hope the experience @sunrisemvmt had with Senator Feinstein today explains why young people are pushing Democrats to find their backbone on supporting the Green New Deal and solutions that match the scale of the climate crisis.
I鈥檓 honestly intrigued by the desire to attack Dems who, say, believe in climate change and entered the Paris agreement, instead of say, Trump, who is pres, thinks climate change is a hoax and edited Paris. Seems a bit odd.

Quick question Waleed - do you and your friends ever go after the people who support coal or want to leave the Paris agreement or do you focus all your energy on people like Neera? This kind of obsessive behavior is slightly creepy tbh

2010 and 2014 midterm exit polls. progressives sure the hell weren't voting like climate change was important. Y'all left African Americans hanging, yo. Now the urgency damn near a decade later? #votelikeblackfolks pic.twitter.com/5b2IAl8b8I
 
Now he鈥檚 reaching back to tweets from November to attack another Democratic woman. I hope the experience we鈥檙e having with @_waleedshahid today explains why Democrats are wary of supporting the Justice Democrats.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
No, it showed me you guys are literally the worst at getting anything done, offend your natural allies, and should be ignored henceforth.
 
I hope the exposure of @_waleedshahid, @sunrisemvmt, @AOC, @justicedems and all of the various arms of the fauxgressive octopus created by Berners as lazy propagandists and brazen liars gives everybody the backbone to tell them all to piss off back under their bridges.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
That tweet is like 6 months old, but how does this explain why it鈥檚 more important to attack Democrats instead of Republicans?
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Is this what the 鈥減rogressive left鈥 do? Make a scene because they can鈥檛 sell the #GreenNewDeal on it鈥檚 own
 
Actual climate deniers are the ones in power though. The decision to not protest them and instead berate people in the minority party who mostly agree w you and technically don鈥檛 have the power to do anything will never not seem like the dumbest possible strategy of activism.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
The whole video or the chopped up shit that reminds me of what James O'Keefe what did to ACORN and Shirley Sherrod? The whole video was a wonderful exchange.
 
 
6month old tweet from @neeratanden
Super edited video to spread 鈥渓eftist鈥 propaganda.
I guess @PhilippeReines shook you so much the other day it turned you into James O Keefe.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Oh please. This was a stunt if ever I鈥檝e seen one.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
She鈥檚 passed more climate legislation than you鈥檝e had winning campaigns and she literally had a climate bill in her hands while your buddies were trying to make it seem like she hates kids.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Your propaganda is ridiculous you should be ashamed.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Dishonest! Watch the WHOLE video!
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Why are you subtweeting? Passive aggressive much? It鈥檚 time to stop using children to do your dirty work.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
You've yet to explain why you appear not to have lobbied a single Republican senator, despite there being at least 5 of them who both face tough reelection fights in 2020 and who are absolutely opposed to taking anything that even looks like action on climate change.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
These are James O'Keefe style tactics, which hasn't worked out so well for the Tea Party. Why not show the whole video?
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Shame on you for perpetuating a clear manipulation about a woman who has served this country with dignity and distinction for a lifetime.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
You think we're scared of your gotcha-bullshit? That Mickey Mouse ambush tactics are going to work? We don't negotiate withe extortionists, and we have a long memory. Reap the wind, sow the whirlwind.
 
Waleed attacking another Democratic woman.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
The Green New Deal might have supreme intentions but it is not a very good piece of legislation. That might have an influence on people not blindly signing on to it. Just saying
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Name ten Republican Senators who'd vote for anything remotely green, much less something that cites the UN climate report but rejects the UN's recommendations: technologyreview.com/s/612780/lets-鈥
 
Lot's of people simply don't get that the politics of wait for your turn are over.

...that tweet is from 2018 you fraud.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
"the Green New Deal" "solutions that match the scale of the climate crisis" Pick one.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Any 'solution' that doesn't include 3rd & 4th generation nuclear reactors is no solution at all. If you advocate for them, you either don't understand the science or don't care to... it's just about the politics.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Lol mate, the problem isn't the Dems, it's the right.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
We definitely still have work 2 do. Progressive Dem here. Most people probably know Feinstein has decades of experience in climate/healthcare/gun legislation/job development & trade. It鈥檚 1 twitter video. Reality Cant be judged by 1 edited twitter video. Twitter mayhem isnt Fact.
 
Supporting someone's highschool essay? You are a moron.
 
Why are are you libeling Feinstein with a deceptively edited video? Quit being gross & get @SenSanders to produce his tax returns.
 
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
So you're part of this propaganda. Let me tell you something. People who deliberately spread misinformation are my enemy. I don't care what your "policies" are.
 
You sponsored an edited hit job video on a climate change stalwart, used children as props, and support a unicorn hunt masquerading as policy that Orwell anticipated ("four legs good, two legs bad")
That's quite a trifecta of uselessness.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Here @neeratanden is wrong - most elected Dems do not believe in climate change as described by the scientific community, which has told us what needs to be done to avert climate catastrophe. Still most refuse to endorse the policies necessary to do it. This is climate denial.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Politicians represent the boomers. They've been doing it for 30 years. Very well.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
It does explain why being skeptical about their edited version was a smart call.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
i wish you all were not dishonest people. feinstein does not control the senate .. mitch mcconnell does. if there is a lesson to be taught it will be in ny14 next year as we mobilize to remove aoc from office.

In reply to @_waleedshahid
I think it鈥檚 important to include in these conversations that I鈥檒l fight people like Feinstein (who resist #GreenNewDeal) every step of the way but will still #VoteBlue in 2020 regardless. Progress, neglect, and regress are three very different things. In the end, can鈥檛 have #GOP
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Hate it when people punch left, and not a fan of punching center either 鈥 especially since the @GOP is a total shit show. But the nastiness and disregard shown by @SenFeinstein tells me it鈥檚 time for her to hang up her keys to Congress. She acted like a hardcore Republican.

In reply to @_waleedshahid
How about protesting against actual climate deniers? You know, the Republicans?
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Or just finding a backbone in general?
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Way off base here! Watch the entire video.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Why are you smearing allies? This scorched earth policy is going to bury Bernie. He needs former Hillary voters and, to get action on climate change, we need Dems. Humiliating them online is not a good lobbying strategy. I can鈥檛 stand idiots.

Maybe you should fuck all the way off

the green deal is a sweet dream, do you know how politics works???? look at who trump is appointing......total climate deniers. FOOL, the green deal is a pipe dream. It's not happening, mainly cause of the puritanical wing of the party allowed trump to win. grow up.

what no one takes into consideration.. because.... political neophytes.. Mitch wouldnt be allowing a vote unless he KNEW it would lose..he doesnt work for us.. he works for fascists in kentucky who brung him to the prom and his caucus of complicits who made him their leader.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Tell me Waleed, why are these children you put through this not confronting Republicans? Those are the politicians holding climate change legislation up. This was a cheap shot and frankly stupid.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Dude, Dems like Feinstein have PLENTY of backbone. I mean, she just literally taunted a group of kids that she鈥檚 sending them straight into a hellscape and there鈥檚 nothing they can do about it. That IS backbone, just in favor of corporate nihilism.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Hey, waleed, good job on adapting and improving James O'Keefe's methods. Is there much overlap between his audience and yours, do you think? There may be something to this horseshoe theory! @chrislhayes

The Paris agreement amounts to nothing but a show of hands of govts. saying 鈥淪ee, we believe climate change is real and we are going to agree to things that have no way to be enforced and we can go about our business while the planet burns.鈥 #GreenNewDeal #Bernie2020
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
It is an old idea. lawdigitalcommons.bc.edu/cgi/viewconten鈥 James Boyd abstract article from 2003 papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cf鈥 A toothless Green New Deal resolution is as timid and weak as you can get. Making polluters pay for their pollution is the way to go. Use the revenue for pollution control.
 
This is the usual far left purity test. We can keep insisting on all or nothing. We'll wind up with nothing. Because that's how a 2 chambers + the executive works.

What kind of parents would put their kids out there to do their dirty work. They are so misled. Pushy, disrepectful and obnoxious little buggers for their age. Not to mention, @AOC exploiting children like that, so wrong on many levels. Dianne won't fall for that kid scam.

You're simply a coward. Bad at what you do. If you had any competence, you'd challenge electeds who are 90% against what you want, instead of those who are 90% for what you want
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Yes, Neera. Climate change has one advocate in @MikeBloomberg so I've heard. Is he running?
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Instead of engaging in any real discourse, Dem lackeys like Neera made Trump the standard-bearer of governance and then use his failure as a counterpoint. It鈥檚 lazy and pathetic.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
Green New Deal is a resolution not a law. Could pass unanimously but it would still need a law to do something. There has been proposals in the world that require polluters to pay fees for their pollution effluent. (See Ruhr area in Germany). Try a solution instead of platitudes.
 
In reply to @_waleedshahid
You're acting as if Democrats are the enemy. Have it your way.
