Climate Change Activism: Where Bernie Sanders Spends $300k for Private Jet Travel and You Get Shamed for Using Plastic Straws
If you needed further proof that the ruling class is seeking to impose its will on you via “climate change” talking points, look no further than Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) spending hundreds of thousands on private jet travel while lecturing Americans about the grave and imminent danger of “climate change.”
“Sen. Bernie Sanders 2018 re-election campaign spent almost $300,000 on private jet service for a recent cross country tour to stump for Democrats and test the presidential waters,” first reported by Vermont website VTDigger.
Sanders travelled to nine states using Apollo Jets, a private charter jet company out of New York, instead of taking much more environmentally friendly commercial flights.
“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” Arianna Jones, senior communications adviser for Friends of Bernie Sanders, told VTDigger.
Sanders publicly scare mongered about the dangers of climate change on Monday.
“Tonight we are dealing with what the scientific community tells us is the great crisis facing our planet and facing humanity,” said in a gathering at the Hart Senate Office building. “That is climate change.”
Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) appeared with Sanders at the event to talk about “climate change.”
“This is going to be the Great Society, the moon shot, the civil rights movement of our generation,” she reportedly said said. “That is the scale of the ambition that this movement is going to require.”
Give her a few years in Congress and she’ll be flying private, too.
Meanwhile, ordinary Americans get lectured almost daily by such elitists about the use of plastic bags, plastic straws, plastic water bottles, and, of course, that thing that gets you to and from your job every day, where you pay taxes so Sanders can make a cushy salary.
Sick of the hypocrisy yet?
