Surprise: Democrats Spend Bigly On Private Jet Flights

See, these same Democrats all have some sort of Big ‘climate change’ plan which will limit your use of fossil fuels, and most want to get rid of fossil fuels. And most have shown their support for the Green New Deal. Yet

Green New Deal Update: Democrats Spend Big on Private Flights

The Democratic Party’s presidential candidates may support the “Green New Deal,” and an end to fossil fuels, but all of the frontrunners are spending large amounts of money on private flights as they jet around the campaign trail.

The Hill reported Friday:

Spending on private flights by Democratic presidential candidates soared over the past three months, from roughly $680,000 in the second quarter to more than $2.2 million in the third fundraising period of the year.

Topping the spending list was former Vice President Joe Biden, who dropped about $924,000 on private air travel …

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg spent nearly $479,000 on private flights over the past three months, up from roughly $300,000 in the second quarter. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) used about $253,000 in campaign cash to charter flights, significantly more than the $17,000 she spent in the second quarter.

The Democratic primary field’s leading progressives, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), also saw their private air travel spending swell in the three-month fundraising period.

The “carbon footprint” of these flights is pretty darned high, well above the average even for Americans, which is already well above the global average. The list also included Gov. Steve Bullock, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), and former tech executive Andrew Yang (all who spent a lot less), and every single person on the list other than Bullock has endorsed the Green New Deal, which calls for eliminating the use of fossil fuels. And, again, many have plans which call for the same.

But, hey, they are Special. It’s OK that they must use fossil fuels and private jets to get around, because they’re running for president. You, on the other hand, are just a peon, a Little Person, so, it’s fine if your life gets disrupted and it’s hard for you to get anywhere, because you aren’t part of the Political Aristocracy.

    One small paragraph of a book I wrote from a series of 3 books. No, I am not here to plug my books nor is the above name the one I use to write, but in this case, I find it particularly telling so I will endeavor to make an analogy.

    The wind dies as suddenly as it begins, long enough to spot the jagged range of rock rising above the barren landscape far in the distance. The tiny dark speck on the cliff face is only noticeable to those who know where to look. I can feel my heart fluttering painfully in my chest forcing me to rip the scarf from my face to breathe. Our lives in the cave always teetering on the brink of extinction flash through my mind. Little food, no medicine, a dying river and a world intent on killing us because we dared try to eke out an existence on this angry planet.

    The environmental groups in the world were a key inspiration when I wrote this series of three books. No, I am not here to plug my books but this passage is particularly telling about today’s left based thought process. The only difference is that in my book the world has been destroyed and in today’s left the world is being destroyed and it is why they suffer. The antagonists are the deniers, the evil weather clues to their path of discovering the truth. Resistance must become futile as they struggle against the weather, race against time and battle the antagonists for the truth until finally, they prevail.

    It is a self-fulfilling exercise. It is the basis of how books are presented to readers to hook them into reading another page and then another. The environmentalists are sincere in their beliefs, simply using the means at their disposal to try and destroy the antagonist as they race for answers(10-12 more years left or as others suggest by the year 2100 etc.) It is a poetic battle of good and evil. A true Shakespearean work playing itself out on the world stage.

    But make no mistake Ridicule does not bother them because they believe they are the Protagonists in the greatest tragedy ever written.
