You’ve probably seen some of the over-the-top reactions to President Trump’s wise decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement, but this has to take the cake. Some liberals – and we’re talking about liberals with real power, not just your average run-of-the-mill Millenidiots – believe that Trump’s RACISM explains why he decided to scrap the international compact.
Shortly after Trump appeared in the Rose Garden to announce the withdrawal, the American Civil Liberties Union (which is no longer even pretending to be an objective protector of civil rights), tweeted this nonsense: “Pulling out of the Paris Agreement would be a massive step back for racial justice, and an assault on communities of color across the U.S.”
Okay. Sure. Whatever you say.
You might initially assume that the ACLU’s Twitter account was hacked by trolls, but no, no…this is what they actually believe.
“Drought, hurricanes, and flooding will impact every American,” they explained, “but climate change doesn’t affect us all equally. Black and brown people are more likely to live near coal plants, and have higher asthma rates than white Americans do. That disparity is only going to worsen in coming years, and it’s why we must #ActOnClimate if we’re serious about racial justice.”
More likely to live near coal plants?
Higher rates of asthma?
Are you serious right now?
We’ll note that the ACLU couldn’t come up with any statistics to back up their claims, but even if they could…so what? What does any of this have to do with the price of tea in China? What does any of this have to do with “racial justice?” Why are liberals so intent on turning EVERY SINGLE GODDAMN ISSUE into a war between the races?
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi also jumped on the fruitcake train in her weekly news conference.
“This is a big matter of environmental justice,” Pelosi said. “Lower income minority families are disproportionately vulnerable to the ravages of the climate crisis. It’s a civil rights issue.”
Once again, “no citation needed” when a liberal Democrat makes a claim about racial justice. If you disagree, why, you’re just a racist yourself. And since “racism” is a part of literally every conservative policy, it gives these morons the ability to rage against the Trump administration without ever backing up their arguments with any hard facts.
If the end of the world is really upon us, it won’t be because of some silly climate pact that never meant a thing; it’ll be because these fools trigger Civil War Part II with their irresponsible, reckless rhetoric.
