The Democrats held their sixth of an endless stream of primary debates. This one was held in California, the land of far-left numbskulls. During the night, Joe Biden was asked about his environmental agenda. When confronted with the notion of sacrificing hundreds of thousands of jobs for a little bit of green advancement, he had no problem pandering to the crowd.
Yep, there was another Democratic debate last night. I’m sure you were watching anything other than that. Seven of the “top” candidates gathered on stage to bicker and fight over whose agenda was more radical, left-wing, and terrible for our country.
According to some pundits, Joe Biden was the winner of the night. Pretty scary, when you think about it. Because he was asked an important question about our economy, jobs, and environmentalism. It seems Joe is willing to eliminate entire sectors of the economy, so long as California hippies are happy.
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden signaled support for eliminating hundreds of thousands of blue collar jobs on Thursday night in order to transition to a “greener economy.”
“Vice President Biden, I’d like to ask you, three consecutive American presidents have enjoyed stints of explosive economic growth due to oil and gas production,” Tim Alberta said. “As president would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth, even knowing potentially that it could displace thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of blue collar workers in the interest transitioning to that greener economy?”
“The answer is yes,” Biden responded. [Source: Daily Wire]
Wow. Joe Biden is willing to put your family out of work, as long as the socialists in California can be happy that we have less oil and gas. Biden didn’t even hesitate in answer “yes,” to that question! I guess he really needs the support of rich, West Coast elitists who don’t care if blue-collar families elsewhere can’t feed their kids.
But check out what Joe goes on to say. Here is his “solution” to that problem.
“The answer is yes because the opportunity for those workers is to switch to high paying jobs,” Biden continued. “We should, in fact, be making sure right now that every new building built is energy contained, that it doesn’t leak energy, that in fact we should be providing tax credits for people to be able to make their homes turn to solar power. There are all kinds of folks — right here in California, we’re now on the verge of having batteries that are about the size of the top of this podium that you can store energy when in fact the wind isn’t blowing and the sun isn’t shining. We have enormous opportunities.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Interesting. Joe thinks it’s okay for blue-collar workers to lose their jobs in oil and gas, because they’ll “switch to high paying jobs.” M-kay.
But notice he doesn’t bother to explain how that’s even possible? When have you seen former oil drillers getting “high paying” jobs in the green sector? Do Silicon Valley startups that specialize in green tech go out looking for employees from the oil and gas industries? Are their special schools that train former blue-collar workers to get jobs in emerging industries?
Has that ever happened?
The answer is no. Biden dodges this idiotic sentiment by rambling on about batteries “about the size of the top of this podium” that he claims can power a house. Mmm… not quite Joe. Like most “green” supporters, he doesn’t understand that batteries need to be charged. And all the wind and solar power in the world isn’t enough to do it.
Good luck powering you’re home on a cloudy day.
Even those fancy (and expensive) Tesla cars are worthless without oil, natural gas, and nuclear energy. If you take those away, you’re screwed.
But it’s interesting how Biden doesn’t mind sacrificing hard-working union members to appease these Californians. And how he doesn’t bother offering hope for the 100,000’s who will lose jobs under his presidency.
At least he got a nice bump from the hippies in the audience. And that’s all that matters, right?
