Noted Metallurgist AOC Makes Woke Claim About Her ‘Zero Emission’ Engagement Ring – Opinion

I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that if super-woke “Green New Deal” leftists like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Loon) spent one-tenthAt the very least, all of the time You can tryThey are able to reason rationally while they watch Planet Looney Tunes. Might be a tad bit more… um… rational. Nah, never mind.

This makes zero difference to me — and it should make zero difference to you — but these people are entertaining at best, and far-left influencers, at worst. Planet Looney Tunes’ most exciting announcement this week was by Socialist BarbieAOC she has become engaged to Riley Roberts, her long-term boyfriend.

My condolences to “Republicans” left “mad” and, no doubt, crestfallen by last December’s heartbreaking news that they really can’t dateThe socialist temptress, I cannot imagine what it would be like to despair.

Anyway, in response to the host of the “Bitchuation Room Podcast,” the Green New Deal authorette- turned-metallurgist declared her engagement ring bling to not only be “recycled gold” — but “zero emission” [sic]You can also.

There’s just one problem. Add two. Perhaps three. 

According to the New York Post, Peter Kahan, of Katz Jewelry in New York’s Diamond District, dismissed AOC’s “recycled gold” nonsense:

“Recycled gold is a marketing term used to promote the gold. All gold can be recycled. No gold is ever wasted,” Kahan said, adding that “new” gold makes up only a tiny share of the market.

Second, other experts told the Post that AOC’s claim of “zero emissions” suggests the diamond was created in a lab, and not mined from the earth. Kahan said a lab diamond would be “significantly cheaper” and would have the “added benefit” of being politically correct — by ensuring it did not originate in a conflict zone. But, “zero emissions” to manufacture? Nonsense.

Let’s get to the bottom of it:

Do you AnyThis matter should be discussed. Anybody — other than those living in the wokified world of AOC and the loony left? You’re right. Then, why bother? Because the lengths to which lefties like AOC will go to show off their woke “bona fides” is hilarious.

Besides, all “news” doesn’t have to be serious — particularly when it’s about the erstwhile bartender from the Bronx — the self-proclaimed know-it-all of all that matters. It should.

You will now be returned to regular and crazy train life.
