Despite the real dangers facing the world, liberals want us to focus on non-issues.
This has never been more clear since President Trump withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord.
It was a terrible agreement that would cost the United States over $3 trillion, not to mention over 6 million jobs.
Yet the left are claiming Trump is trying to destroy our future. It seems they don’t really care about Americans’ welfare.
But perhaps the most ridiculous reaction has come from, who else, Jerry Brown—governor of California.
From Daily Wire:
On Thursday night, the entire left side of the aisle melted down over President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord. Although there was tough competition, California Governor Jerry Brown earned a spot among the most extreme public reactions to the news: “People will die!” he screeched.
“My immediate reaction is this is a crazy decision,” he said live on-air. “It is against the facts. It is against science. It is against reality itself. We know we have to de-carbonize our future.”
Brown then turned up the hyperbole to tell us the repercussions of pulling out of the deal: “If we don’t, it is a horror. People will die! Habitats will be destroyed. Seas will rise. Insects will spread in areas they never have before. This is not a game. It is not politics to talk to your base. It is humanity and whether it makes it through the 21st century.”
Kind of ironic, considering how people are dying right now, thanks to radical Islamic terrorism. Brown is concerned over the exaggerated claims of climate alarmists, but not about the real lives being lost today.
The left are only using climate change as an excuse to push more Socialism onto America. If they can convince people our lifestyles are causing global warming, then we would be happy with liberals giving the government more and more control over our businesses, property, and personal freedoms.
They claim they are trying to protect lives, as Brown suggested. Yet when real threats to our society rear their ugly head—like ongoing terrorism at the hands of Muslim extremists—they do nothing.
They say we should just accept the deaths. It’s a normal part of life.
Sounds like they don’t really care about life or death at all—just what will grant them more power and money.
