Facepalm! AOC, Kamala Harris Now Think the Climate is Racist

If Democrats are anything, they are expert race-baiters and practitioners of identity politics – so much so that they can turn anything into an issue about race, class, and socioeconomic status.
Including the climate.
Yes, global weather patterns can also be racist according to that brainiac former bartender, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, and her non-African-American counterpart in the Senate, Kamala Harris of California.
The two have teamed up to support legislation that calls for any future climate bills to be scored by how they may impact poor communities filled with persons of color (as if there are no poor white communities and as if the very same legislation wouldn’t negatively impact minorities who are better off financially).
The two Democrats introduced the Climate Equity Act Thursday that would, if passed, require Congress to score future climate bills based on how much they may negatively impact poor and minority communities, The Washington Post reported. The two Democrats initially unveiled a draft of the bill in 2019, when Harris began her unsuccessful run for president, media reports show.
The equity score would be similar to the economic scores the Congressional Budget Office applies to other legislation, WaPo reported. The Climate Equity Act would also apply to regulations the Trump administration proposes in the future.
“COVID-19 has laid bare the realities of systemic racial, health, economic, and environmental injustices that persist in our country,” Harris said in a statement to the Post. “The environment we live in cannot be disentangled from the rest of our lives.”
Don't laugh. This legislation “is a really big deal,” according to Kerene Tayloe, director of federal legislative affairs at WE ACT for Environmental Justice (whatever "environmental justice" is).
“Nothing like that has ever existed,” Tayloe added.
That's because prior to this moment in our history, no one has ever been daft enough to claim that weather and climate are racist and bigoted.
Harris was right there with AOC in 2019 supporting the “Green New Deal,” which was no deal at all and which, if ever enacted, will literally break our country and our people financially.
The DC adds:
Americans could be forced to pay up to $93 trillion to implement the Green New Deal over a decade, the conservative-leaning American Action Forum (AAF) noted in a study in February 2019.
Republicans in the Senate torpedoed the legislation in March 2019, while Democratic lawmakers called the vote a dog-and-pony show. The GOP defeated the proposal 57-0, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell calling the bill a socialistic ploy designed to kill the economy.
In case you still wondered if the issue of climate and weather and the ‘science’ surrounding both has been politicized, wonder no more. The answer, resoundingly, is yes.
Now for the bad news. If Democrats ever regain total control over our government or Republicans suffer brain damage en masse and elect Mitt Romney as president, the Green New Deal – and the race-scoring climate legislation – will become realities.
Because insanity like this never goes away, it just becomes dormant until the time comes when it can be enacted.
