“We’re all going to die. We have to kill someone to stay alive.”
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told CNN’s climate change town hall attendees Wednesday night that he is willing to talk about population control, suggesting that abortion is key to addressing the climate crisis. “Human population growth has more than doubled in the last 50 years,” an attendee told Sanders, adding that the planet cannot sustain such growth. I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians but it’s crucial to face. Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact,” the attendee continued.
Turns out that the “attendee” was a Sanders campaign staffer, but she continued, “Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?” she asked.
“Courage, you bet! Ever since Dorothy gave me that special clock, I’m a real man. No mouse here. The answer is yes,” Sanders said, arguing for mandatory population control – in the form of abortion and birth control, specifically – is something he “very, very strongly” supports.
Not to be outdone, the ironically named Pete Buttigieg, also referred to as “Lord Farquaad” called the fight against climate change possibly worse than the global struggle against the Nazis in World War II: “This is the hardest thing we will have done certainly in my lifetime as a country, this on par with winning World War II,” he said. “Perhaps even more challenging than that.”
Buttigieg said he was “excited” by the idea of using the military to solve the problem of climate change. “The military has an amazing capacity to rally, to achieve what is being asked of them,” he said. “And nothing will end the scourge of pollution like dropping a bomb down the chimney of an American manufacturing plant.”
The video of Buttgig outlining his plan to use the military to coordinate “voluntary compliance” using the military has gone viral:
He looks much taller on video.
When reminded that the Nazi’s implemented forced abortion during World War II, Buttegieg replied, “I’ve always had a policy of inclusion. We need to include everyone. Everyone.”
