To quote from George Orwell’s Animal Farm:
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.
Under the Green New Deal or any of the variations proposed by the DemocRATS running for President, we … the hoi polloi … will have to use candles for light, burn peat-moss to heat our homes and go meatless. Our “leaders” in contrast … while they are not saying so … will get to continue flying in private jets, driving luxury SUVs, living in massive oceanfront dachas heated and cooled by fossil fuels, and eating as much Filet Mingon as they like … and … of course … using plastic straws.
Look at the Ayatollah Buttigieg. He’s constantly telling us that he planet is teetering on the brink … that we have only 12 years or weeks or days or whatever it is to turn things around … or we are all goners … and yet the Ayatollah is flying private, eating red meat and slurping through plastic straws.
But that’s what Socialism … and make no mistake the Green Deal which involves giving the government total control over the economy and over our lives is Socialism … has always been about. One set of rules for the hoi polloi and another set of rules for the leaders.
Of course, the Ayatollah Buttigieg and his Socialist ilk will tell you that it is absolutely necessary for the planet’s well being .. not theirs… that they continue to fly private etc. etc. etc. Again quoting. from Animal Farm:
“Comrades!’ he cried. ‘You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. I dislike them myself. Our sole object in taking these things is to preserve our health. Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organisation of this farm depend on us. Day and night we are watching over your welfare. It is for your sake that we drink the milk and eat those apples.”
