Bernie Sanders Claims Climate Change Like a 'Military Attack,' Twitter Explodes


Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was widely ridiculed on Twitter after he took the “war” on climate change a bit too literally.

“We must look at climate change as if it were a devastating military attack against the United States and the entire planet. And we must respond accordingly,” Sanders tweeted on New Year’s Day.

Let’s humor Sanders for a moment. How would the United States respond to a “devastating military attack” against the entire planet?

After such an earth-shattering event, Congress would likely issue a declaration of war and the U.S. military would subsequently launch a “devastating military attack” of its own.

Does Sanders want the U.S. military to somehow nuke climate change into submission?

Obviously, that’s not possible, and the far-left senator was ruthlessly mocked on Twitter for his ridiculous statement.

Jim Hanson, president of Security Studies Group, attempted to dissect Sanders’ strange statement.

“You gonna nuke the Sun?” Hanson mockingly asked. “Or Everyone w/ a car?”

Filmmaker Ben Howe jokingly suggested launching nuclear weapons at the atmosphere.

James Taranto, an editor at The Wall Street Journal, reminded Sanders that Congress has the power to declare war.

Plenty of others had fun at the senator’s expense.

Sanders’ statement is ridiculous, but it’s also an example of another problem with left-wing politicians.

They are increasingly using fear-mongering to push their “climate change” agenda.

Do you think Sanders will win the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020?

In November, Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York claimed that “people are going to die” if her “Green New Deal” isn’t passed.

At the same time, the left will falsely accuse President Donald Trump of using fear-mongering.

Author and media personality Michael Malice used Sanders’ tweet to point out the left’s hypocrisy.

Sanders and his left-wing colleagues are using textbook fear-mongering to push their extremist “climate change” agenda.
