Seb Gorka Promises Conservatives His Political Opponents ‘Want to Take Away Your Hamburgers’

The Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual conference that entertains the biggest conservative names in politics, is underway and one of the early headliners decided to go all-in on the nuttiness.

Sebastian Gorka, a former Trump adviser who had a White House gig during the beginning of the administration, told the crowd on Thursday morning that his political opponents “want to rebuild your home, they want to take away your hamburgers. This is what Stalin dreamt about but never achieved.”

Watch the video below:

Gorka was referring to a Green New Deal FAQ that was released suggesting that maybe Americans should cut back on meat consumption as it contributes to global warming.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who has been one of the voices spearheading the Green New Deal, said in a recent interview that she’s definitely not suggesting that all Americans go vegan, but said, “It’s to say, ‘Listen, we’ve got to address factory farming. Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Like, let’s keep it real.'”

But Republicans have found a red meat punchline on burgers and have continually preached some sort of burgerless-apocalypse to their base. At a press conference on Wednesday, some Republican lawmakers suggested that the Green New Deal would outlaw burgers.

Gorka, in his trademark European accent, also told the crowd that they’re on the front line against communism. The idea that communism or socialism is sweeping the American political system has been a constant theme both in Republican talking points and at CPAC. That idea even made an appearance at the State of the Union where the president warned that socialism was on the domestic horizon.

But, Ocasio-Cortez has gained a lot of support for her Green New Deal and the policies that it’s built on. Almost every single Democratic candidate eyeing the 2020 election has endorsed the Green New Deal.

“Republicans have found a red meat punchline on burgers and have continually preached some sort of burgerless-apocalypse to their base.”

Republican tyrants know how to rile up their base with irrational ideas and lies. They, like the NAZIs, do it using fearmongering and disgust, and it works very well.

Democrats want to take away your guns. No, they don’t.

Democrats want to stop you from flying in planes. No, they don’t.

Democrats want to take away your burgers. No, they don’t.


“to go all-in on the nuttiness.” Stopped reading right there. You REALLY ARE nothing but a partisan hack.
