AZ Democrat: I Want My Generation to Kill Golf, ‘Self-Interested Parts of the Agriculture’ Industry

Something for a Saturday to remind us just how far left the left can go. I was looking forward  to sitting down and enjoying watching a round or two of golf on the golf channel this weekend.

Next weekend, Tiger Woods will be back at it, and we will see if he can do a repeat and continue his winning streak. I have many happy memories of a round of golf with my father on a Saturday. Enjoy it while you can.

Democratic state senator Juan Mendez (Ariz.) on Monday called for Arizona to adopt provisions of the Green New Deal because he wants to be “part of the generation that kills golf” and the “greedy parts of the agriculture business industry.”

Mendez participated in a press conference on “Earth Day” with Democrats and environmental activists, where he touted his support for the Green New Deal.

“I’d rather be part of the generation that kills golf and self-interested, greedy parts of the agriculture business industry than the one that killed the planet,” Mendez said. “I have no concern for just one industry’s future. I’m here to protect our shared future, and that does not have to include alfalfa just because it’s safe market choice and has high yields.”

The Green New Deal is a 14-page economic stimulus resolution that was released in February by self-described democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D., Mass.) that aims to fight income inequality and climate change. The American Action Forum study offered an estimate in February of the Green New Deal costing up to $94.4 trillion, or over $600,000 per household in the United States.
