After dozens were killed by tornadoes, Biden uses tragedy to advance his agenda

As Rahm Emanuel said, never let a good tragedy go to waste.

Take a look at the storms that tore through several states and killed dozens of people late Friday and early Saturday night. Based on CNN, officials believe the death toll could be as high as 80, with Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear saying more than 70 people may have been killed in his state alone.

So on Saturday, when President Joe Biden spoke about the tragedy, he naturally blamed “climate change.”

Climate change has become a convenient scapegoat for liberal politicians whenever an unusual weather event occurs, even if science doesn’t back it up. And yet, Big Tech will make a move against any store that dares to call the left. (At The Western Journal, we don’t succumb to liberal pressure to report the truth – and you can help us bring Americans the truth and fight Big Tech censorship by registration.)

Biden, unable to travel to the affected area, is at his home in Wilmington, Delaware. However, according to Fox News, he did a virtual tour of the damage and then spoke to reporters, where one asked him if he “could conclude that these storms and their intensity are related to climate change or not”.

“All I know is that widespread weather intensity has some impact due to planetary warming and climate change,” Biden said.

“The specific impact on these specific storms, I can’t say at this time.”

“I would ask the EPA and others to look into that matter,” Biden continued.

Do you think Biden is using a tragedy as political ammunition?

“The reality is we all know things get more intense as the climate warms. Everything. And, obviously, it has some impact here, but I can’t give you a quantitative read on that. “

This is the exact answer Biden should give about whether climate change anything to do with tornadoes: “I don’t know.” Dots.

Instead, here’s a four-part response, in which the president tries to contradict himself over and over in a matter of seconds:

  1. All the president knows is that climate change has made widespread weather more extreme.
  2. That being said, he can’t tell you about the impact.
  3. He will ask the Environmental Protection Agency to look into it.
  4. But it definitely has some type of impact – “obvious.”

In other words, the response has become a baffling speech to Biden’s agenda. Maybe 80 people have died and the president is busy blaming climate change for discrete weather events – a fallacious climatologist warn against.

But no, this is not a matter of politicizing a disaster – not even a little.

Instead, Biden insists it’s about preparedness, and “part of that is acknowledging that there’s less chance of weather disasters, no continuing movement to deal with global warming.” demand, won’t happen.”

“We’ve always had wildfires, but who in the name of God thinks we’ll see… more territory burned… bigger than the state of New Jersey, from the Hudson River to Cape May?” he say.

“We have to act, but the first and most urgent thing here is that we have to save anyone alive, we have to care for them if we can get them to the hospital, and we have to take care of those families.”

All of that is the most important thing, of course – which is why he continues to talk about climate change. This is not a secret at all and is completely unsurprising at the same time.

Needless to say, there is neither the time nor the occasion for this type of rhetoric. We shouldn’t talk, less than 24 hours later tornadoes mentioned down, on whether the president was using the disaster as a joke to score political points.

However, like Mr. Emanuel, it seems that our current president cannot let a good tragedy go to waste.
