Climate Criminal Charlie Crist Displays His Hypocrisy and Arrogance
If anything could be more astonishing than the hypocrisy of progressives, it is their insolent dismissiveness when they are called out on it. RINO-turned-Democrat Florida candidate for governor Charlie Crist is a case in point:
Crist flew to an environmental press event Thursday on the private jet of a developer fined for pollution.
Almost as soon Crist stepped off the 2005 Cessna 560XL, Gov. Rick Scott’s campaign had photographed its tail number and traced its ownership to developer James Finch, whose company Phoenix Construction was fined at least twice for violating environmental rules (more here, here and here).
Scott’s campaign quickly informed reporters awaiting Crist at his press conference concerning climate change.
According to childishly delusional left-wing dogma, climate change (formerly known as “global warming”) is both bad and avoidable. A significant cause of it is people flying around in airplanes.
I don’t despise even Charlie Crist enough to suggest he actually believes airplanes are making it be too hot out. But if he wants the press to like him, he is supposed to pretend.
Yet when he was called out on all the carbon that was emitted because of the phony conference he decided to hold in Tallahassee instead of a more central location, he responded with the arrogance we have come to expect of Democrats.
“I’m going to fly and I’m going to get around Florida as fast as I can to talk to as many people as I can to tell them the truth about what this guy isn’t doing on climate change and [quack quack quack].”
“This guy” refers to his opponent Rick Scott, who it turns out is the real villain when it comes to climate change, possibly because he isn’t holding phony press conferences on the topic.
