And the nominee is………….Chris Hayes.
You’ll want to watch the next clip a few times, as it contains almost every liberal canard ever discussed, and manages to see the invention of a few new ones besides. It conflates the right to free speech with the mythical right to be heard, tells a few lies about hydraulic fracturing, which was renamed, “fracking,” in order to make it sound worse, discusses inflicting public policies designed to tweak national behaviors towards a more leftist approved end, and of course our old friend catastrophic climate change is presented as being factual, even though the evidence of such has been discredited more times than the virtues of the Run and Shoot Offense.
What liberalism boils down to in a nutshell, is this. Liberals want people to behave in ways that they would like, and not in ways that people would choose for themselves. They see nothing wrong with using public policy to inflict what they term, “incentives,” in order to, “tweak,” the behavior of others. If, God forbid, those,”tweaks,” do not work in the proscribed manner, more stringent forms of coercion are acceptable. It is based upon what they desire others to want. For instance, if you desire to eat steak with large amounts of soda, and they feel that it’s not fair that you can afford steak and soda, they’ll pass a law that says you must pay a health tax on red meat due to its unhealthy amount of fat content and ban all sugary drinks beyond 4 oz., and levy a carbonated beverage tax to combat global warming.
The truly sad thing about this conversation however, besides the fact that these buffoons are discussing in so cavalier a manner the dispossession of Trillions of dollars of wealth from American citizens, for no other reason than to make their idiotically inefficient energy sources considered a viable alternative by people who wish to stay warm during the winters and travel back and forth to work, is that this represents truly, a regressive form of taxation. This will be disproportionately more burdensome on the poor, and will not in the slightest affect the likes of those discussing this nefarious plot. Chris Hayes, I guarantee you, will be driving the same exact gas guzzling vehicle, without carpooling, into and out of New York each and every day. George Clooney and his pals will still be tooling around on their private jets lecturing the rest of us about saving the planet just as smugly as ever, while we get to freeze to death during the winter because algae can’t heat our homes after all.
Don’t worry though, I’m sure that after they get this set of policies passed, someone will pass a tax that punishes the, “middle class,” for breathing so that we get to pay for the heat and such of the poor. So, in the end, our prize will be this. Not only will we get to pay more for our own fuel and energy, we’ll get to pay more for the fuel and energy of those who are liberal approved wards of the state as well. Meanwhile the elites who gave us these gifts, will live their lives of elite judgement of all right and wrong completely unfettered by the consequences of the policies so happily inflicted upon you and me, wondering why we are not more thankful for the things they let us keep.
Elections have consequences America, and these idiots being taken seriously represent only a few of the last couple.
