Top Democrats running for president in 2020 have jumped on and endorsed Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s radical Green New Deal that aims, among other things, to eliminate air travel.
But the elimination of air travel strikes particularly close to the homes of Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, and Kamala Harris – all of whom extensively used air travel, including private jets – throughout the years in office. [Source: Fox News]
To understand “Green Communism”, you first have to understand the nature of Communism.
Under a Communist dictatorship, the rulers live well. The mandates they impose on everyone else don’t apply to them.
It’s not just hypocrisy — although it IS hypocrisy. It’s also in the nature of the ideology itself.
If the rulers are to shape society and people a certain way for their own good, then the rulers must be left at liberty to do things they will never permit their subjects to do.
Of course presidential wannabes Gillibrand, Booker, Sanders and Harris — all of whom support the “Green New Deal” that will outlaw air travel (and so much else) for the rest of us ten years from now — will continue to fly on airplanes. If they’re to take care of us and rule us properly and comfortably, they have to be given the liberty to do things they will never allow anyone else to do.
It shows the lie in Communism, including the “green” form of Communism now on the rise in the Democratic Party. If fossil fuels were even half as evil as they claim fossil fuels are, the rules against air travel (and human civilization as we know it) would apply equally to them. In fact, if they had any shred of integrity — however irrational their proposals — they would take the lead by abolishing air travel for themselves NOW. They would lead by example.
Leftists live in an intellectual cocoon. They never challenge themselves or each other. They have decided fossil fuels are bad. They have decided that everything connected with fossil fuels, including air travel, must therefore become extinct after 2030 or whatever magic date they select. They see NO contradiction whatsoever in the people they’re electing to enforce this insanity never following it themselves.
It’s the exact same thing that happened under Communism in formerly Communist countries, and in presently collapsing ones like Venezuela.
You might dismiss these Green Communists as marginal and self-defeating. Let’s hope so. But we could be just one or two elections away from THIS becoming the agenda of Congress and the White House. It’s already on the agenda of the House of Representatives. America has never been closer to the national equivalent of suicide than it is today. It’s no time for complacency. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Today’s Democratic Party consists of the worst internal enemies this country has ever known. We have to do whatever it takes to stop them.
