Fighting climate change is nice work, if you can find it. Some of global warming’s most – wait,…global climate change – wait,…man-caused global climate change – wait,…let’s just now call it “science” most outspoken proponents include Al Gore whose net worth now sits at a cool $300 million and Leonardo DiCaprio who just barely scrapes by on $245 million. Climbing into that club is Barack Obama who upon leaving the White House has purchased vacation homes in California and Hawaii, and has been living la vida loca like few others.
While there’s nothing wrong with being wealthy and earning all you can, what irks the people whom Gore, DiCaprio and Obama would call “science deniers” is the blatant, flamboyant, over-the-top and in-your-face hypocrisy of the preachers of “science.” And while that hypocrisy is frequently on display, what Obama just did is startling even by mega-millionaire, science-denier-finger-pointing, progressive liberal standards.
From Daily Wire:
Obama Takes Private Jet, 14-Car Motorcade — to Climate Change Speech
“Former president Barack Obama cares about the environment. A lot. So much so that he took time out of his busy schedule of hob-nobbing with celebrities on a super yacht in Tahiti to attend a “climate change” summit in Italy.
But America’s first black president wasn’t so green. He took a private jet to Milan, then rolled into the city in a 14-car motorcade — with a helicopter keeping watch overhead. He dumped enough carbon into the environment to kill a small forest.Yet he wasn’t done there. Then he opened his mouth, pouring more hot air into the atmosphere. “During his roughly 100-minute remarks in Milan, Italy, the former U.S. president talked about himself 216 times,” according to a count by The American Mirror.
Obama said “I” 168 times, “me” or “my” 40 times, and said “we,” “us” or “our” referring to his family eight times, the Mirror wrote.In a Q & A period, Obama was asked how he had changed over his eight years in the White House. “One of the dangers of being in the public eye, being in the spotlight, being in positions of power is how it will change your soul. That you start believing your own hype. You start believing that you deserve all the attention. I actually found that I became more humble the longer I was in office.”
As for his “humility,” Obama was paid $3 million to make his speech on climate change at the “Seed & Chips: The Global Food Innovation Summit” in Milan. And upon his arrival, Obama headed straight for the “extravagant Park Hyatt hotel, which can cost up to £7,100 (€8,400) a night,” the UK Express reports. And he was so humble that he had the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana museum and the city’s cathedral closed off to visitors so he could take private tours.
The Daily Mail reports Obama stayed in a sprawling $20,000-a-night hilltop villa in Tuscany after his “humble” speech.”
There truly are not words and the questions are so obvious its almost pointless to ask them. Why does anyone need 14 cars?
One has to assume its impossible for these wealthy liberals to not see their own hypocrisy. ‘No one should have guns’ they say from behind their armed-guard-protected gated communities. ‘We all must do our parts to lower personal carbon emissions’ they preach from private jets, yachts and limousines. Amazingly their “good enough for me but not for thee” rhetoric is lapped up by the liberal rank and file as if spoken from the gods. Gods who must travel in 14-vehicle motorcades.
