Bernie Blames Terrorism on 'Climate Change'... Fact-Check Time!
Bernie Sanders. He's the kind of guy who has mental ward supervisors shuffling papers, only to find there isn't an application process for his particular brand of crazy.
Bernie Sanders thinks lots of crazy things, but at the top of the list is this...
"In fact, climate change is directly related to the growth of terrorism. And if we do not get our act together and listen to what the scientists say, you’re going to see counties all over the world…they’re going to be struggling over limited amounts of water, limited amounts of land to grow their crops, and you’re going to see all kinds of international conflict."
He even doubled down the next day on CBS Face the Nation, saying, "...you're going to see migrations of people fighting over land that will sustain them. And that will lead to international conflict."
Yes, right amidst one of the worst terror attacks in the last decade... Bernie Sanders actually pivoted toward
global warming cooling climate change.
I'm a reasonable guy. Let's just say - purely for sake of argument - that climate change was even on the same level as terrorism, let alone more concerning. Yeah, I know. Just bare with me for a moment.
Does that mean that Bernie would finally support a government grant to fight terrorists? Perhaps we can burn the bastards bodies for renewable energy? I'm trying to reach across the aisle here, Bernie. Work with me.
Bernie Sanders, and the LOLeftists who support him, may have been able to try and spin this as quasi-reasonable if THERE HADN'T BEEN A MAJOR ACT OF TERROR THE NIGHT BEFORE. I mean, if Ben Carson had said this, they'd paint him as a man riding the bus to crazy-town.
So consider this our in-depth fact-checking analysis:
CLAIM: Islamic terrorism is directly correlated to g
lobal warming cooling climate change.
FACT: Over one hundred and fifty people were killed in Paris. It had absolutely zero to do with global warming cooling climate change. Zero. Looking throughout the Middle East and Islam's long and storied history, we were also able to verify that throughout history, Islamists have tortured and killed people in the name of Islam.
Regardless of ambient temperature.
We still have more-fact-checkers on the case, so please check back for updates.
Bernie, can you just grow the testicular fortitude here, just this once, to admit that you're wrong? Just flat out wrong? Just once? Can, can you do it?
