Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez once again found a way to embarrass herself.
This one takes the cake.
And murders just caused one major problem for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
As Conservative Revival reports:
The western world has let climate change fanatics push stringent requirements on energy production.
This resulted in energy production being shipped overseas to counties with more lenient policies like Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela.
Relying on hostile foreign nations for vital resources is a terrible idea.
Yet, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried to keep America from expanding production by claiming during a congressional hearing this week that there was a link between fossil fuel extraction and indigenous women being murdered.
“We have a crisis of missing and murdered indigenous and black women in the United States,” she said. “Today I want to discuss part of this crisis that is all too often overlooked, but whose evidence shows that there’s a very meaningful connection here, the correlation between fossil fuel extraction sites, and abductions and murders of Indigenous women across the United States. We’re very lucky to have Ms. Angel Charley here with us today to start that conversation. Ms. Charley, let’s start at the top. Can you draw a brief introductory picture of how fossil fuel extraction efforts expose Indigenous women to physical and often sexual violence? Why is it that oil, gas, and fossil fuel extraction sites have such a high correlation of violence and abduction against native women?”
“Fossil fuel industry creates man camps, or temporary settlements, that often exist right outside the border lands of indigenous communities,” Charley responded. “As I stated earlier, many tribes do not have tribal jurisdiction over non-native offenders, which a majority of these oil workers are. We know that when these man camps or temporary establishments are created, that there is an increase in violence and particularly sexual violence against our native women.”
“So when there’s a fossil fuel extraction site that is placed on a reservation, and those workers, oil company workers, go to the reservation, have that site, if they commit a crime, and commit violence against indigenous women, you’re saying that they essentially escape jurisdiction from having a clear path to accountability because of where these sites are happening. Is that correct?” AOC asked.
“That is correct,” Charley claimed.
This vast sympathy is a complete act. Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t care about that child slaves that are dying in mines to procure cobalt that is needed to manufacture electric cars. She drives a Tesla.
She doesn’t care that solar panels are produced by Uyghur Muslims in Chinese slave labor camps.
Drilling for fossil fuel in America is far more humane than most of the “green energy” policies relying on rare earth minerals.
It isn’t kindness that’s motivating Ocasio-Cortez to push her climate change agenda, it’s pure stupidity.
