Hillary Clinton’s carbon footprint, just from her private jet, is gigantic!
The Daily Mail reports, “Video shows Hillary Clinton boarding private jet just hours after launching global-warming push – and she’s using a FRENCH aircraft that burns 347 gallons of fuel every hour!”
This should surprise no one.
On Monday the Democratic presidential front-runner announced the details of her initiative to tackle climate change, calling it ‘one of the most urgent threats of our time.’
But shortly afterward, a videographer working with the conservative America Rising PAC spotted her at the private air terminal in Des Moines.
FIfteen seconds of video shot just after 12:00 noon, local time, shows Clinton walking up the plane’s stairs while an aide hodls a giant black umbrella over her head to sheld her from falling rain.
‘Despite her campaign’s best efforts to rebrand her as a down-to-earth fighter for “everyday Americans,” Hillary Clinton’s jet-setting ways are just further confirmation that she’s out of touch with the American people,’ the group’s communications driector Jeff Bechdel told DailyMail.com.
‘It’s that kind of hypocrisy that makes the majority of voters say Clinton is not honest or trustworthy.’
We have covered the “hypocrisy” of such people before. Al Gore provides a visible example of it.
But I agree with Mark Horne, on similar behavior from John Kerry, that this is not really hypocrisy. It simply reveals what elites are planning for us. As Mark writes:
I am thankful to have the point raised, but it is not enough to scoff at the hypocrisy, because there is no hypocrisy!
Kerry would only be guilty of hypocrisy if he claimed that everyone needed to lower their carbon footprint. That was never his agenda. He want us in flyover country, who leave a miniscule carbon footprint compared to him, to have ours cut in half or more. He wants us to pay more for energy and food or simply do without it while he continues to jet set around either as a politician or, when he transfers over to some “important” corporation, as a member of the pseudo-private-sector ruling class. All we have to do is look at Al Gore’s lifestyle or Barack Obama’s vacations and see that this is exactly their plan. None of these people has any concern about climate change except to the extent that it makes the rest of us poorer. They intend to live the same way they are living now.
Climate change is a method for transforming the United States so that it more closely resembles North Korea.
Hillary Clinton intends to deprive the middle class so she can take credit for saving the world while continuing to enjoy her private jet. It is just another version of sipping wine while selling baby parts.
