The Democratic incumbent owes his primary victory to the Sunrise Movement, a surprisingly deep-pocketed “youth movement” backed by old-school oil money such as the Rockefeller Foundation that has led the campaign for the Green New Deal environmental legislation package, according to Sunrise itself and several political observers.
“Markey was the most prominent figure on the Green New Deal aside from AOC,” Sunrise Movement executive director Varshini Prakash told the New York Times on Friday, explaining why her organization threw its weight behind getting Markey get re-elected.
Video of planning sessions appears to show children being taught “how to get arrested” to further their cause and being encouraged to destroy property because “it can be replaced.” Sunrise is affiliated with “private intelligence military contractors and foreign interests,” who, according to Weaver and investigative journalist Harry Vox, train the children in paramilitary tactics.
The Times hinted, in Friday’s op-ed looking back over Markey’s campaign, that Biden should follow in the Massachusetts senator’s footsteps, offering himself up to Sunrise in exchange for a boost from the group’s well-oiled political machine. Given the candidate’s inability to remember whether he plans to ban fracking or not, it would be quite the October Surprise if Biden underwent a ‘green’ makeover at this late stage, but stranger things have happened.
