OOPS! De Blasio Demands NYers Abide by Eco-Friendly Rules, But Refuses to Himself...
Bill de Blasio is in this story so you know there's going to be high levels of moronic activity (see Douchebag NYC Mayor De Blasio to March in Parade Honoring Terrorist and Moron of the Year: De Blasio Says Drunk Driving is Ok... When Illegals Do It). But even still, you may not be prepared for this amount of stupid. Apparently Bill conjured up a plan to rebel against Trump by fighting climate change... or something. Everyone in New York is to abide by his new environmentally conscious set of rules.
The only problem? He doesn't seem to be taking those rules too seriously himself.
Mayor de Blasio says all New Yorkers must change their lifestyle to curb carbon emissions ... announcing plans to ban plastic bags and beef up enforcement against idling vehicles.
"Everyone in our own life needs to change our habits to start protecting the Earth," he said in his weekly appearance on WNYC radio.
"How about you step up your game and lead by example [by] getting out of your SUV armada?" said [a] caller, Charles Komanoff, a longtime energy-policy expert from Manhattan.
"And if you need to go to the Park Slope Y five days a week rather than a gym near you, why don't you take mass transit or even once in a while ride a bike like the vast majority of your fellow New Yorkers so you will know how we are suffering under a transit system?"
Boom goes the dynamite that is this caller. This Charles dude is an environmental activist himself, but I can appreciate anybody calling out de Blasio for being a sack of hot flatulence. Here's how he scrambled to justify his hypocrisy...
De Blasio defended his rides by noting that his SUV is a "fuel-efficient" hybrid.
"I wish my life was like everyone else's, but it's not, for obvious reasons. But again, the issue is not cheap symbolism here. The issue is, Are we going to take action?" he said.
In other words? Bill gets to inconvenience everyone else with his smarmy, fat-headed, "eco-friendly" policies... But he's too important to change his own energy-guzzling ways. Sorry peasants.
Sound familiar? I'm sensing a trend among leftists... Read Leonardo DiCaprio Flies to Accept Environment Award in Private Jet. Yes Really.
This should clear up any doubts you may have had as to how self important the left is. They believe in unfettered access to energy for me, but not for thee. Bill's proposed plan is exactly what he claims to hate; cheap symbolism. Clearly de Blasio wants to impose his climate morals on the people of New York, but doesn't have the de Ballsio to carry out those morals in his daily life.
Well fret not, I've got good news for you, Bill. You need not limit your royal tush to one-ply to save Mother Earth, because manmade climate change? Still not a thing...
