There was a time, long ago, when the left stood for something. You could argue that the counter-culture hippies of the 1960’s were, I dunno, ignorant, idiotic, annoying, or downright stupid. But at least they believed in what they said. They actually walked their talk.
Today the left is all but a sham of its former self. Long ago they traded in conviction for cash. They love the feeling of power, over you, over me, over our society, so they stopped caring about things like ethics, right and wrong, and American liberties.
They use causes like “social justice” and–most notably–the environment, to acquire more political power. The environment alone has given the federal government greater control over industries, private companies, and the rights of citizens to own and control their own land.
Yet the left doesn’t really care about reducing pollution and the temperature of the earth. If they did, they’d operate a lot differently than they do.
From Heat St:
Chelsea Clinton was campaigning for her elderly mother in North Carolina on Wednesday — and showing off her Clinton-esque taste for expensive, carbon-emitting travel options.
After attending campaign events in Greenville, the former first daughter took a private jet to Asheville, just a five-hour drive away, to attend a roundtable event on “clean energy.” Asheville is a paradise for hippies who love the environment…
The Clinton campaign promised during the Democratic primary that their entire operation would be “carbon neutral” and had some friendly reporters write stories about how even campaign manager John Podesta took the bus.
The campaign doesn’t talk about that pledge much anymore, given the how much the Clintons love flying on private jets, presumably out of class envy. They may be rich AF, but it must annoy them to have to attend campaign fundraiser with so many hedge fund managers who are even richer AF than they are and own their own private jets.
The Clinton’s are the poster child for modern, hypocritical democrats. While they fleece the American public over their “commitment” to the environment, their actions prove they are no different than every other rich, arrogant, elitist.
Instead of burning fossil fuels to fly to a clean energy summit, Chelsea could have Skyped in (is is common practice these days in the government to use video conferencing and “webinars” to reduce costs and fuel). Yet this very simple and “green” solution was rejected, so the daughter of the most corrupt woman in politics can fly on her jet.
To a clean energy summit.
But the Clinton’s will ignore this hypocrisy. They hold everyone else to a standard they refuse to submit to.
Unless we hold them accountable, and keep Hillary out of the White House, they will continue to defraud the American public for their own personal gain.
