The Democrats have gone off the deep end.
And more people are beginning to speak up about what they’re seeing and hearing.
Now a basketball coach called out one Democrat for an insane proposal.
Auburn Tigers basketball coach Bruce Pearl couldn’t hold his tongue.
Prominent public figures in the sports world tend to keep quiet about politics, but Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib said something so stupid that Pearl had to speak up.
During a congressional hearing, the Michigan congresswoman urged banks to divest entirely from fossil fuel production.
Tlaib asked JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, “Does your bank have a policy against funding new oil and gas products?”
Dimon responded, “Absolutely not, and that would be the road to hell for America.”
That triggered Tlaib to childishly reply, “Sir, you know what? Everybody that got relief from student loans has a bank account with your bank should probably take out their account and close their account. The fact that you’re not even there to help relief many of the folks that are in debt, extreme debt, because of student loan debt and you’re out there criticizing it.”
The embarrassing ordeal spurred Pearl to write, “Like Gas Prices aren’t high enough? Is the Congresswoman from Michigan not at all concerned with how much it’s going to cost people to stay warm this winter? Let’s just let Russia and Iran take care of our fossil fuel needs?! A weaker USA is dangerous for the world!”

Pearl gives Tlaib way too much credit.
She is a braindead socialist who jumps on every single anti-American, anti-capitalist cause.
The radical left has been attempting to seize control of the economy through nonsensical environmental policy for at least 30 years.
That push has brought the country to the point where a member of Congress is imploring banks not to fund fossil fuel projects.
Tlaib and other radicals are clueless on energy production.
Wind and solar are wildly inefficient and unreliable sources of energy.
As Pearl pointed out, the winter months would be devastating without fossil fuels.
Contrary to popular rhetoric from the left, the cold kills far more people than the heat.
Perhaps the great irony of the radical environmentalist push from the “woke” left is that poor people are harmed most by a lack of energy.
It takes energy production to become more prosperous as a society.
Americans take for granted inventions like the light bulb or kerosene lanterns.
In the past, when the sun went down, all work had to stop.
It’s still that way in some developing countries because of a lack of energy.
Tlaib and the radical “greens” are espousing a fundamentally anti-human message.
That becomes particularly clear when they talk about lowering carbon emissions, but they denounce clean forms of energy like natural gas and nuclear power.
They don’t want to save the planet; they merely want to control it.
Bruce Pearl couldn’t take the idiotic policy goals any more and had to say something.
