“Time to end the war on coal”
We all know that Obama essentially threatened to bankrupt the coal industry — the very industry responsible for creating the electricity for the ridiculous, unpopular cars he wishes we’d buy. But the extent to which he’s gone to keep his promise is even more staggering than we imagined.
Rebekah Rast pools the frightening facts here.
Viewed through the lens of “protecting the environment,” this attack on the coal industry appears merely ill-considered and over-zealous. But viewed through the lens of an orchestrated, left-wing assault on capitalism and a vibrant middle class — with the end goal being to manage US decline and re-built us as a kind of Europeanized soft socialist welfare state — it is perfectly reasonable, and explains why, despite howls of protests and studies showing that such burdensome regulations on coal will not only cost jobs, but will eventually lead to rolling blackouts, etc., the Obama Administration, gorged as it is with radical leftist ideologues, continues to ignore dire warnings about how the war on coal will hurt the larger economy: it’s supposed to do just that.
I know. Visigothy.
And yet, who really has to do the stretching, straining, and avoiding of facts and trends in order to continue to paint this President and his Administration as misguided pragmatists in over their heads?
That last is, of course, rhetorical.
