Democrats Love The Green New Deal (And Using Lots Of Fossil Fuels)

Most of them prefer that you, the peons, be forced to not use fossil fuels

Daniel Turner: 2020 Democrats love the Green New Deal but embrace fossil fuels to power their campaigns

Each of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates has a slogan. The one for Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., is “for the people.” Former Vice President Joe Biden says, “Our best days still lie ahead.” Former Texas Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke plays it cool with slang: “It’s Gonna Take All of Us.”

Clearly the polls say Americans want to feel like they are part of the team. Inclusive. A musical montage from a teen movie where everyone chips in and they save the day. But don’t be fooled: These candidates are not like you, and the policies they support are actually bad for regular Americans. In fact, their slogans should all be the same: “Do as I say, not as I do.”

Nowhere is this more obvious than when it comes to being green.

As part of their required Federal Election Commission quarterly filings, the candidates disclosed how their finances and each campaign have been spending a lot of money on private jet travel. After all, how else does one get from Iowa to New Hampshire? In coach? Taking off shoes at TSA? With campaign donations picking up the tab, private jets make the campaign trail much better.

For a collective group of Democrats who decry fossil fuels, who embrace the radical Green New Deal, who demand we change our habits and diets to reflect the “existential crisis” of climate change, they sure don’t put their campaign money with their mouth is.

Every one of the 2020 candidates supports the Green New Deal (GND) as part of their campaign, and as a reminder, this radical, socialist proposal of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seeks to make air travel “obsolete.” Air travel is such a no-no amongst environmentalists that “flight shaming” has become a common tactic the green radicals use.

So, why do these candidates get a pass? If they want us to stop flying commercial, why are they justified in flying private?

In reality, it’s not just the presidential contenders, but most of the Democrats, almost all of whom are Warmists. How about the 95 cosponsors in the House? How many travel using fossil fuels?

The Buttigieg campaign said it needs private jets because South Bend isn’t convenient to campaign stops and the mayor has a vigorous schedule. Here’s a question for Mayor Pete: If I live in rural America and am busy, can I get an exemption under the Green New Deal you support?

We all know the answer to that question, plebeian.

Warmists always have an excuse for their climahypocrisy.

What happens when the Green New Deal does make air travel “obsolete” and the 10 million American jobs in the airline industry are lost? What happens when Sanders gets his wish to make fracking illegal by executive order and consequently half our oil and two-thirds our gas comes off the market?

I’ll tell you what happens: You won’t fly home for Christmas. You won’t buy fruit in winter. Cold weather and athletic clothing with lycra and Core-Tex and nylon won’t be affordable. Food prices will skyrocket. Shipping costs will make European goods unaffordable, and speaking of Europe, forget about going. You can’t afford it, because with oil around $200 a barrel, even a cruise is out of the question.

You can bet that all the people who support this anti-fossil fuels push will be Shocked, Shocked! that this has happened.
