Rep. Dan “McCain 2.0” Crenshaw (R-TX) came out with an op/ed this week in National Review arguing that conservatives need to embrace the reality of climate change and propose a government solution to the supposed problem.
“With ever-more-extreme “solutions” such as the Green New Deal being proposed, conservatives have quickly taken the bait, falling into the tired political trap set by leftists. But I believe we no longer have to do this. We can fight back against the alarmism with tangible solutions based on reason, science, and the free market,” he wrote.
Crenshaw bragged in the op/ed that he is working with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on a globalist plan to defeat climate change.
“After all, climate change is a global issue, and with global energy demand expected to increase by 25 percent over the next 20 years, there is a distinct need for the U.S. to export cleaner energy sources to the developing world, as well as to the biggest CO2 emitters, such as China and India,” he wrote.
Crenshaw’s plan is called the New Energy Frontier, and he wants the government to pick winners and losers in the marketplace in order to support natural-gas technology that he claims is carbon neutral. He wants more bureaucracy to be put in place in order to facilitate his big government solution.
“I also propose creating a new “Carbon Utilization Energy Innovation Hub,” which will exist within DOE for the sole purpose of exploring how we can make carbon dioxide useful,” he wrote.
He claims that if the Republicans do not support a big government solution to climate change, the Democrats will come up with an even bigger government solution for the problem.
“Conservatives can either tackle the issue of carbon emissions sensibly by proposing workable solutions, or run the risk of allowing the Democrats to do it for us — with policies that would offer marginal environmental benefits at a devastating cost to the economy,” he wrote.
He finished his op/ed with a quote from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and essentially confirmed that he is taking her advice.
He concluded: “As Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), my colleague, said of this dichotomy, “If you don’t like the Green New Deal, then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis. Until then, we’re in charge.”
“We don’t want them in charge. It’s time to start promoting conservative solutions. The New Energy Frontier is exactly that,” Crenshaw wrote.
WATCH: Bernie Sanders Hails Mount Rushmore As “Our Country At Its Very Best” In 2015 CNN Clip
Will he be cancelled next?
A 2015 clip of former Democratic Presidential candidate and Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders praising the cultural accomplishment of Mount Rushmore has resurfaced, with some contrasting the democratic socialist’s praise of the monument with the potent hatred for the icon of American civilization expressed by many elite liberals within the corporate media today.
“Just the accomplishment and the beauty,” says the progressive leader of the monument, which he visited during a South Dakota campaign tour in 2015. “It really does make one very proud to be an American.
This is our country at its very best… What an incredible achievement,” says Sanders of Rushmore, which the Democratic Party’s official Twitter feed has likened to a “white supremacist” monument and the New York Times has linked to slavery and the Ku Klux Klan.
If he were running for President today- just months after his second presidential campaign sputtered and lost the Democratic nomination to party elder Joe Biden, Sanders would all but certainly be castigated by liberal fanatics as a “racist” ignoring the systematic oppression and racism that the four U.S. Presidents featured on the cultural monument supposedly represent.
Sanders’ 2015 admiration of the monument- which, by all indications appears to be honest, and sincere- is indicative of the cultural fanaticism the affluent cultural liberals who prevented his nomination in 2016 and 2020 have installed within the Democratic Party. Sanders represents the tradition of the 1930’s left, which fixates its political focus on the material well-being of working class Americans, as opposed to the cultural jihad of neoliberal Democrats. Unfortunately, it appears the cultural left fanatics- who furiously howl for the destruction of Mount Rushmore and statues of iconic American Presidents while cowtowing to a donor class of corrupt billionaire oligarchs- have taken the driver’s seat of the Democratic Party, leaving Sanders’ admiration for the monument in history.
