Lowlights of the Climate Change Town Hall

2019 September 5
by bc3b

It will be interesting to see when the ratings are announced later today or tomorrow – how many had strong enough stomachs and weak enough minds to watch CNN’s seven-hour fiasco (aka climate change town hall) last night.

The Democratic candidates presented their recommendations and unveiled their multi-trillion dollar plans which call for ordinary Americans to pay more in taxes and make personal sacrifices so the elites can maintain their extravagant lifestyles.

For example, Bernie Sanders, who wants to spend $16.3  trillion ($200,000+ for a family of four), never mentioned selling one of his three homes, which would obviously reduce his carbon footprint. Nor, was there any suggestion that the rich and famous should make sacrifices like stop taking charter jets and fly commercial when they travel. Silly me! Sacrifices are for the little people … not the elites.

Fortunately, people like Matt Vespa made the sacrifice and watched this monstrosity so we didn’t have to. Here are some lowlights:

Julian Castro got the ball rolling talking about “environmental racism.” He was later asked whether it was “fair” for younger generations to procreate.

With the left, everything is racissst.

Folks from the Daily Caller also made the ultimate sacrifice. Here is what they saw:

  • Kamala Harris thinks Americans should eat less red meat. She also would eliminate the filabuster to pass the New Green Deal.
  • Pete Buttigieg believes that climate change may be a greater battle than World War II.
  • Bernie says abortion will help fight climate change and wants to ban certain light bulbs.
  • Lie-a-watha told people in Port Arthur, TX not to worry about losing good-paying energy jobs. There are other jobs, she said. Just pretend you’re an Indian and Harvard will hire you at $400,000 a year.
  • Skateboard Beto wants to bring the US back into the Paris Climate Accord, so the Chinese and other major polluting countries can rip us off.
  • Klubochar pledged to eliminate coal-burning plants

But, for the Democrats, the greatest thing is greater government control over the masses.

Here’s a Daily Caller link with some video of the lowlights if you are interested.

    Put this in the “blind squirrel” category.

    To his credit, Sleepy Joe Biden probably made the most intelligent comment of the night by stating that 85% of the “problem” comes from the rest of the world. Yet, he still fully supports the New Green Deal.

    Remember Dog’s rule about corporations — https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-09-05/gms-mary-barra-meet-trump-oval-office-thursday — When the board picks a female to head the company, the smart money has already left the building with the receivables.

    back on the concept of a “Social Credit Score” determining whether we can exercise our Constitutional Rights that drdog linked at the bottom of the last post.

    WTF???

    Trump cannot seriously be thinking of this. Is he? The Big Tech companies cannot be trusted now…but give them the power to directly rule our lives by meting out Rights based on algorithms THEY would control, and using PRIVATE conversations… Big Brother never had it so good in ‘1984’

    And the articles I’ve since read indicate this would go beyond what people online, or even what searches they do. It would include passively acquired data from things like Siri, Alexa and even Apple “Smart Watches”. Devices that are ALWAYS listening.

    we are right on the cusp of total tyranny…with a Happy Face, of course

    Talk about hypocrisy! According to South Bend’s gay, pro-abortion mayor, no one is a good Christian except him (especially Republicans).

    The Trump Admin says it doesn’t agree with social credit scoring.
    Says the topic hasn’t been discussed.

    On the AGW debate, heh:

    The climate change advocates cherry pick things and then twist them to suit their purposes.

    I understand Biden was also promoting high-speed trains. There are occasional times when trains work. When I lived in Naperville and worked in the Loop, I took a train every day. There were enough riders that the train was an express that could immediate get on the middle track and go 30 miles in 30 minutes. Driving on the Eisenhower was a pain and parking downtown was $25+ then. I changed jobs and no longer worked in the Loop so trains suddenly became useless for me.

    They keep doubling down. In post-town hall appearances this morning, Alfred E. Newman says if you eat hamburgers and use straws, you’re part of the problem. Willie Brown’s mattress cover says she feels guilty because she likes cheeseburgers. Didn’t anyone tell Kamala that guilt is a honky thing?

    That’s okay. CNN will make up for it with the LGBTQ Marathon, which is coming soon.

    It’s almost like CNN is attempting suicide. I am surprised AT&T is putting up with it.

    My guess is that last night’s Town Hall was even more painful than watching the Detroit Tigers 10th loss in the last 11 games.

    another excellent, though long, article that states what should be obvious: the Left seeks to destroy America and everything it stands for.
