Just when you thought fake Republican Senator Mitt Romney couldn’t get worse, he has now announced that he believes in the fairy tale of “climate change” and that man has caused it.
Romney, who has fashioned himself the Senate’s chief anti-Trumper, made an appearance at a Utah group called the Sutherland Institute in Salt Lake City on Monday where he made the head-slapping announcement.
Even worse, he said that he wants to speak to young Republicans about global warming to get his propaganda instilled in them because older conservatives are resistant to his globaloney message.
“In some respects, (by speaking with newer conservatives), I’ll be able to make inroads with some of the young people coming along,” Romney said according to the Associated Press.
Romney called the left’s Green New Deal “silly,” not because it is an idiotic, socialist plan that will utterly destroy the economy, but only because developing nations are exempt from its economy-crushing strictures. Apparently, Romney doesn’t mind the communist Green New Deal if the whole world is oppressed by it at the same time.
Then this traitor went off on the wondrousness of a carbon tax and said how great it would be.
Romney discussed the benefits of a carbon tax, a fee based on each ton of carbon dioxide emissions produced by fossil fuels that some major oil companies have adopted. He suggested a portion of the tax revenue could go to coal workers in rural communities that would suffer financially from the move to cleaner power alternatives.
After that, the left-wing Romney who parades as a Republican, attacked Donald Trump for “family separations” at the U.S. border with Mexico.
Romney has never been a conservative, and for the most part he’s never even been a good Republican.
During his own runs for office he was for abortion before he was against it, for high taxes before he was against them, and against the Second Amendment before he was for it. He took every side of every position depending on who he was talking to and what he was running for whether it was Mass. Senate, the Bay State’s governorship, or, later, president.
Mitt Romney was never to be believed. He is no conservative. Never was. Heck, HE is the guy that created Obamacare, for Pete’s sakes.
Then, during the recent presidential campaign Romney calculated that Trump had no chance to win the White House so he jumped feet first (or mouth first) into the establishment Republican #NeverTrump idiot camp because he thought that was the winning side. He spent months trying to destroy Trump’s candidacy and got absolutely nothing with his extreme efforts except accolades from those on both left and right who were working to get Hilary Clinton elected.
