Nancy Pelosi thinks the seriousness with which China and Cuba are supposedly tackling “climate change” is just great.
Never mind it may just be the communists’ way to stifle their capitalist rivals.
During a speech last week at the University of San Francisco during the Global Climate Summit conference, the House Minority Leader — and presumptive House Speaker in 2019, according to the mainstream media — praised the two communist countries for their support of Democrat efforts to curb “climate change.”
“I went to a state dinner with President Obama in Havana when he was in Havana,” Pelosi said last week.
“And a year before I had taken a delegation there, and we spent a lot of time on climate. So when we’re sitting at the dinner, I said to President Obama, ‘The foreign minister is an expert on climate. Perhaps you’d like to have him share some of his ideas.’
“Before I could finish my sentence, Raul Castro — that raging millennial — chimed in, this man, he said, ‘Climate change, that’s the biggest issue for us,'” Pelosi recalled.
“‘The rising sea level, the ferocity of the hurricanes, we have to have change,'” Pelosi said Castro told Obama.
“The recognition at long last what fuels we use on the ground, heat on the ground, increasing the ferocity of the storms,” Science Professor Pelosi lectured the audience.
“Doing much more damage,” she continued. “And why? Why do we keep doing this? Why don’t we see the relationship.”
Pelosi suggested kids know more than their parents when it comes to the issue.
“The hope of it all are the young people because no matter what the political leanings of their parents, they know better about what is at stake in all of this,” she said.
The Cubans weren’t the only communists Pelosi praised.
“I fight with China every day about human rights in China and Tibet and the whole country … but we work together on climate,” she said.
“We work together on climate. It’s so, so very important.”
Earlier this year, Pelosi’s progressive pal, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, praised Communist China for what she called its “long-term, whole-of-government strategy.”
As President Trump was corralling North Korea in May, Warren appeared on CBS to discuss the developments.
“There is a North Korean official apparently coming to America. You said the president doesn’t look like he has a strategy, but it looks like his calling off the summit last week seems to have lit a fire under the North Koreans. Three hostages have been released, so maybe there is a strategy?” host John Dickerson said.
“You know, look. North Korea is a bad actor, we understand that, uh and uh, the president had already promised that they could have a meeting with the President of the United States, something that both Kim Jong Un’s father and grandfather had long, long sought,” Warren said.
“Then it’s been back and it’s been forth. I want this to work, I want this to work to reduce the threat to South Korea, to Japan, to our allies in the region, to the United States of America, to the entire world, but it really takes a strategy and I look at the comparison with China,” she said.
“Look at what China is doing,” Warren continued. “China’s got the long term arc and it’s playing everybody. It’s playing North Korea, it’s playing South Korea, it’s playing the United States of America because it has a long-term whole-of-government strategy that keeps driving towards an end.”
That “whole-of-government strategy” is known as communism — the anti-thesis of democracy.
