Are You 'Unwilling to Work'? Sign Up for the Green New Deal at This Parody Website
Last Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) unveiled the text of her Green New Deal, a resolution calling on Congress to create an actual bill to remake America in her climate alarmist democratic socialist image. Before that launch, Ocasio-Cortez's congressional office posted answers to "frequently asked questions." The office later removed the page, and a top adviser suggested it was a clever sting operation by Republicans. The FAQ page called for the eventual elimination of emissions from cows and air travel, and the provision of "economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work."
Some enterprising website entrepreneur put together a parody internet page, inviting Americans to mark themselves "unwilling to work" and sign up for Green New Deal benefits.
The site's "About" section urges visitors to "Secure your spot today."
"As per the goals outlined in the Green New Deal, every American will be provided with 'economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work'," the site explains.
"Questions have been asked about the process by which Americans can declare themselves unwilling to work and sign up for free economic security," the section continues. "Fortunately, we think it should be as simple as declaring yourself as one of The Unwilling and then filling out the short application at the bottom to determine your new career and salary. For answers to specific questions, please refer to The FAQ."
The site lays out a four-step program: "1. Enter your old job info; 2. Fill out a quick application; 3. ???; 4. Profit!"
The application proves just as hilarious. It requests "basic information" about an applicant's old occupation and salary, along with the applicant's gender identity. Options include Two-Spirit; Skoliosexual; Otherkin; and Other. Options for hobbies include "eating," "drinking," and "ghouls," while options for skills include "Can balance a spoon on your nose" and "Can burp the ABCs."
