Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is your consummate leftist. He’s a “Democratic Socialist,” he believes in higher taxes, he believes the minimum wage should be unreasonably high, he believes corporations should be punished for existing, and on top of that, he’s a climate alarmist.
Being a dyed-in-the-wool leftist, however, he’s a massive hypocrite on all of these things. Sanders, himself, is a rich man who rejects common sense solutions to the climate issue, and Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw called him out on it recently with absolute perfection.
It all started when Sanders took to Twitter in order to push more doom and gloom about how the natural disasters that keep occurring are the result of manmade climate change. As per the usual, Sanders pushed the idea that in order to stop the weather from doing bad things to the people, the United States must swear off fossil fuels. As we all know, there were no natural disasters before we began burning coal and drilling for oil.
“Oregon is burning. California is burning. Siberia is burning. People are drowning in New York City. Detroit is flooding. There is drought all over the world. This is a climate crisis,” tweeted Sanders. “The United States must lead the world in transforming our energy system away from fossil fuel.”
