In the wake of the horrific condo collapse in Surfside, Florida, last week, we knew it wouldn’t be long before the political left tried to use this as an example and reason why their not-so infrastructure-focused infrastructure bill needed to be pushed through into law.
Well, now it’s happened. And it’s even more ridiculous than we thought.
On top of using these tragic deaths to push infrastructure, Biden’s Energy Secretary is also trying to claim that climate change and the mismanagement of our forests, above all things, is what caused the collapse.
Enter Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm.
Just days after the collapse, Granholm sat down to speak with CNN’s Erica Hall, and naturally, the tragedy that has so far left at least 11 dead and some 150 more unaccounted for came up in conversation.
But rather than speak of the loss of life or what is being done to unbury all those presumed to be crushed in their homes, Hall suggested it may have been climate change that caused it.
Now, I have to say, Hall must have done her homework because Granholm is a massive climate change fan. In fact, on numerous occasions, she has gone around boasting about her electric car. And so, naturally, Granholm jumped at the chance to make this about one of her favorite subjects and one that could further push forward her Democratic agenda.
Hill asked, “Given what we know about the changing climate, given that we’ve seen an increase in so-called extraordinary tides, and the impact that can have in areas like South Florida, do you think that climate would have played a role in that building’s collapse?”
And while Granholm couldn’t answer with certainty, she clearly tried to agree with where Hill was trying to take this.
She stated, “Well, obviously we don’t know fully, but we do know that that the seas are rising. I mean, we know that we’re losing inches and inches of beaches – not just in Florida, but all around.”
Granholm then went on to describe the “loss of beaches” at Lake Michigan, where she is from, claiming that the waters are ever-rising there too. As for the building collapse, Granholm noted that “we’ll have to wait and see.”
She then noted that no matter what the analysis of this specific event resulted in, the fact remains that we have to “adapt to this changing climate.” And that means adding and changing infrastructure such as levees, sea walls, etc. Apparently, it also means “invest(ing) enough in clearing out the forests so we don’t have these weather events.”
Two birds, one building collapse.
Climate change and infrastructure have just been combined by the political left in yet another attempt to get whatever they want.
Never mind that the dead and missing in South Florida have yet to even be fully recovered. Never mind that families and, in fact, an entire community is grieving. Never mind the real reason for such a collapse.
Instead, it’s all about getting what dementia-ridden Biden and his trusty cohorts have put forward across the finish line.
Unsurprisingly, the American people, without their heads up their ass, saw right through Granholm’s not-so-subtle pushed message and are taking to social media in outrage.
And they have every right to be angry about Granholm’s implications.
I mean, here she is, a federal official who is supposed to rely on fact, science, and, well, everything she’s not. And yet, at nearly every turn, she looks to conspiracy ideas, far-fetched theories, and partisan bias.
Of course, if the President of the United States can do it when talking about gun control, why would the energy secretary think it was wrong. On numerous occasions now, Biden has used tragedy after tragedy as a way to make the American people believe his habits, his policies, his ideas are somehow good for us.
On the recent third anniversary of the Parkland shooting in Florida, he didn’t go on about its tragedy, the sad loss of life. Hell, he didn’t even memorialize it. What he did instead was to use it as a jumping point for his increased gun control proposals.
And based on Granholm’s recent and callous blame game, I’d say she learned from the worst…
