Wildly-woke New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now claiming cauliflower should be uprooted from community gardens — because it’s “colonial.”

AOC recently took to Instagram to dig up racism in the Big Apple’s community gardens, which she believes are “core” to her proposed Green New Deal.

Cauliflower is apparently the Ku Klux Klan of the vegetable world.

“What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” AOC mused.

She added: “A core component of the Green New Deal is having all of these projects make sense in a cultural context, and it’s an area that we get the most pushback on because people say, ‘Why do you need to do that? That’s too hard.’

“But when you really think about it, when someone says that it’s ‘too hard’ to do a green space that grows Yucca instead of, I don’t know, cauliflower or something — what you’re doing is you’re taking a colonial approach to environmentalism.”

What’s important is that people of colour are able to grow foods familiar to them in the community gardens.

But it’s that cauliflower thing causing racialized communities to turn their backs on the environmental movement.

“And that is why a lot of communities of colour get resistant to certain environmentalist movements because they come with the colonial lens on them,” she opined.

The New Yorker has been outspoken on climate change and … just about everything else.

Apparently, she’s gaslighting cauliflower because it’s European in origin becoming popular in the New World in the 17th century.

Oddly, the Swiss chard, spinach and collard greens AOC claims to love don’t get the colonizer label. All three are foreign to the U.S.
