If there’s a news outlet that has the least political love possible for Senator Dianne Feinstein, it’s NOQ Report. Out of over a dozen articles about her over the years, two were mostly neutral towards her acceptance of pro-conservative ideas. The others were all negative.
That’s why it feels a bit odd to give her kudos for something, but that’s where we’re at today following a strange confrontation between far-left “Sunshine Movement,” the kids they brought with them to act as cover, and the Democratic Senator from California.
They gained notoriety last month when Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined them on Capitol Hill for a rally. From that moment on, they’ve been Green New Deal disciples.
Fight hyper-leftism. Support NOQ Report.
The state of the Democratic Party today has those who used to be considered far-leftists such as Senator Feinstein confronted by hyper-leftists at the Sunshine Movement who used children as indoctrinated props to make their confrontation with the Senator go viral. They then scolded her for having a modicum of fiscal responsibility in accepting the untenable nature of the Green New Deal. Feinstein, who has pushed pro-environmental legislation throughout her career, is suddenly part of the vast right-wing conspiracy to the radical progressives of the modern Democratic Party. She might as well be David Duke in their eyes.
This is a fight for our generation's survival. Her reaction is why young people desperately want new leadership in Congress. pic.twitter.com/0zAkaxruMI

Responses from the right and left are just as one would expect. Most conservatives are laughing at the spectacle. Others are actually defending Feinstein, probably for the first time in their active Twitter lives.
The greatest part of this video is 1:10 in:
GIRL: "I hear what you're saying, but we're the people who voted for you. You're supposed to listen to us, that's your job."
FEINSTEIN: "How old are you?"
GIRL: "I'm 16. I can't vote."
FEINSTEIN: "Well then you didn't vote for me."

Democrats are outraged with the way Dianne Feinstein talked to children about the Green New Deal, yet they remain silent on the fact that the teacher has led those kids to believe that they only have 12 years left to live.

Senator Feinstein refused to be lectured and bullied by a mob of brainwashed tweens on the insanely stupid Green New Deal.
Good for her. https://t.co/MfMYA1NVbF

This isn't the correct usage of the word "disparage." That aside, the sad part about this clip is that these kids have clearly been harshly indoctrinated on a subject they know nothing about. They're being used. I don't even like Feinstein. But I'm glad she saw past this ploy. https://t.co/0sSCMfNy1H

The best part of this is that she called their bluff, and, having done so, exposed the lack of a backup plan.
“But I brought kids with me, to bully you.”
“I don’t care.”
“But . . . but I brought kids.”
You don’t have a backup plan either. Feinstein did a public service.

Those kids in the Feinstein video didn't have opinions, they were programmed by a "teacher," and used as a prop for a viral video.
Don't get me wrong, I love stunt queens. Jim Acosta is a heart throb.
If you're not smart enough to see that video for what it was, don't vote!

What really pissed me off the most about those privileged kids annoying Senator Feinstein was the smug look on their faces.

Feinstein’s attitude got all the headlines. What should’ve gotten the headlines is the way these kids were being used as political props by the adults standing beside them. Happens in schools all the time, have witnessed it first-hand on too many occasions. https://t.co/rXQRaT4lmr

"Okay kids, your homework tonight is to memorize these Green New Deal talking points. Tomorrow, we go to see a Senator. If you don't convince her to bankrupt the country and send the world into an economic spiral, you and everyone you love will be dead before your 25th birthday."

The left’s reaction was very much against Feinstein. That’s a bad sign. It means that not only is one of the most popular and powerful Democratic Senators vulnerable to attacks from the hyper-left, but that the people paying attention are actually believing the Green New Deal isn’t a civilization-destroying event.
Sadly, I didn’t even need to compile the Tweets from the left. Most of them are already compiled by Twitted in their “Moment” regarding the incident.
Senator Feinstein appeared to lecture some children campaigning for the Green New Deal
The hyper-leftist radical progressive wing of the Democratic Party is going from annoying to dangerous to downright evil. Their tactics are despicable. Their ideology is horrid. We need to prepare ourselves with the truth in hand.
