Campaigning in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina over the weekend, Democratic presidential hopeful Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) made it clear that she is looking to alter “human behavior.”
Harris, a climate alarmist who just signed onto the outrageously expensive and oftentimes incoherent “Green New Deal,” essentially argued that tackling environmental issues means politicians conditioning and controlling their constituents — for their own good, of course.
“It is a fact that we can change human behaviors without much change to our lifestyle and we can save the future generations of our country and this world,” Harris told a crowd of supporters.
“But there has been a failure to do that because this administration, and the people who are apart of it, are in the pocket of big oil and are denying what we know is a reality around greenhouse emissions and what we need to do to curb those,” she continued, bluntly adding: “We need a new President.”
Harris was mocked online by conservatives for uttering out loud the Left’s true totalitarian leanings. After all, savvy progressives know that such admissions are supposed to only be referenced in coded language.
“The essential premise espoused by Harris is one that has deep roots in the Democrat philosophy. Raising prices and taxes on everything from carbon-based fuel to fattening foods is a hallmark of Democrat legislating and rule-making, from Capitol Hill down to city halls across the country. It is in that sense not a surprising thought for Harris to have or even share, but it was delivered decidedly more ‘on the nose’ than such liberal reflexes usually are by politicians hoping to win a popular vote,” argued TheBlaze.
One of Harris’s main focuses for her 2020 presidential bid has been climate alarmism. In February, the Senator voiced her full support for socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s widely-mocked “Green New Deal.” Ocasio-Cortez, remember, has announced that the world will end in 12 years if we do not tackle climate change in the manner in which she has proposed.
“I wanted to share some really important news with you: I’m proud to announce that I’ve signed on as an original co-sponsor of the Green New Deal in the Senate,” Harris wrote in a Medium post on February 7.
“For too long, we have been governed by lawmakers who are beholden to big oil and big coal. They have refused to act on climate change. So it’s on us to speak the truth, rooted in science fact, not science fiction,” she continued. “Here’s the truth: climate change is real, and it is an existential threat to our country, our planet, and our future. With each passing day, the imminent threat of climate change grows — and we see it in everything from more instances of extreme weather to rapidly melting glaciers.”
The Senator added that “we have a shrinking window to take drastic action to cut carbon emissions and make meaningful change to save our planet,” noting that the intrusive Green New Deal is part of that solution.
As previously reported by The Daily Wire, the Green New Deal is “a massive government takeover of large portions of the U.S. economy” which “is projected to cost up to $93 trillion.” On average, a recent study found that each U.S. household would be on the hook for a whopping $650,000 in order to pay for the proposal.
