Beto: Global Warming Activists Just Like Those Who Stormed Beaches in Normandy

Beto O’Rourke invoked World War II to push an extremist stance on global warming, claiming environmental activists are just like “those who were on the beaches in Normandy.”

If he keeps up this kind of hyperbole, President Trump will have much more to mock than just his hand gestures.

O’Rourke, who just announced his candidacy for president in 2020, has been portrayed as a ‘centrist‘ by those seeking to make him seem like the normal candidate amongst a sea of radicals in the Democrat party.

Instead, within days he has embraced socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s global warming alarmism and, just like the New York Democrat, compared the fight against climate change to those heroes who served in World War II.

“The current president says he doesn’t believe in climate change … How can we, who used to be the indispensable nation, be the only country that has removed itself from any obligation to work with anyone on perhaps the most pressing problem?” Beto asked.

“When you think about leadership, those who preceded us — those who were on the beaches in Normandy, those who faced an existential threat to Western democracy and our way of life, they showed us the way,” he continued.

World Will End in 12 Years

O’Rourke also embraced Ocasio-Cortez’s doom and gloom predictions that the world is essentially going to end in 12 years if we don’t take bold action to confront climate change.

“This is the final chance,” he warned. “The scientists are unanimous on this. We have no more than 12 years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis.”

Ocasio-Cortez famously lamented, “Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?'”

Normandy

To be clear, those who stormed the beaches in Normandy on D-Day liberated France and turned the tide of World War II. More than 9,000 Allied forces were killed or wounded in the pivotal battle.

Beto’s ‘Normandy’ appears to be driving a gas-guzzling mini-van across the country, asking you to pay for it, then publicly complaining about your own choice of transportation.

What an inspiration.
