Elites believe that they know what’s best for all of society.
And they use celebrities to push their propaganda messages.
Now a far-left Disney star wants to take away one thing from your home.
Socialist actor Mark Ruffalo is taking a break from making millions in Marvel movies to lecture people on how to cook dinner.
In light of news that Joe Biden might issue a nationwide ban on gas stoves, Ruffalo championed the insane idea.
One wonders if his wife Jill will be exempted from the ban.

West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin was appalled by the suggestion and wrote on Twitter, “This is a recipe for disaster. The federal government has no business telling American families how to cook their dinner. I can tell you the last thing that would ever leave my house is the gas stove that we cook on.”
Ruffalo smugly replied and demanded Manchin “tell people the truth about gas burners.”
The actor said, “Don’t get too worked up. The science has been there for years, plus fracked gas has been shown to release radiation into homes as well. Tell people the truth about gas burners, that’s all. By the way, induction cooktops blow gas away! Faster, cheaper, hotter, better in every way.”
He then posted a selfie with his induction cooktop.

The truth is that the gas ban is the latest gambit from the climate zealots to exert control over the American people.
Climate activists are claiming that gas leads to more instances of asthma among children.
Brady Seals, a manager of a clean energy group and co-author of the dubious study in question, said, “There is about 50 years of health studies showing that gas stoves are bad for our health, and the strongest evidence is on children and children’s asthma…By having a gas connection, we are polluting the insides of our homes.”
Seals’s paper is based on cherry-picked statistics, and downplays what type of foods are actually being cooked.
For example, electric stove tops can and will generate the same amounts of smoke depending on the oils and ingredients used, and how they’re cooked.
Jill Notini, vice president of the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers, argued, “Ventilation is really where this discussion should be, rather than banning one particular type of technology…Banning one type of a cooking appliance is not going to address the concerns about overall indoor air quality. We may need some behavior change, we may need [people] to turn on their hoods when cooking.”
Notini is correct in that a ban will do nothing.
Chef Andrew Gruel, who vehemently opposed COVID lockdowns, called out the farce of banning gas stoves.
He explained that electric stoves rely on power plants that are powered by coal and natural gas, so the ban is nonsensical.
Climate activists will stop at nothing to seize control of the economy and limit Americans’ freedoms.
And useful idiots like Ruffalo will parrot the party line.
