Many Hollywood celebrities are afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
They spend much of their time bashing the president for one ridiculous reason or another.
Now, acclaimed actor Robert Redford is blaming Donald Trump for something truly insane.
The election of Donald Trump in 2016 has driven the Left off the deep end.
Just when it appears they’ve hit rock bottom, they sink even lower with some unhinged rant.
Now it’s Robert Redford’s turn to discover the new depths of Left-wing madness.
Redford penned an op-ed for CNN blaming Donald Trump for the climate crisis.
News Busters reports:
Well-known climate alarmist and retired actor/director Robert Redford continued his assault on President Trump on Friday by calling the GOP official “one unqualified authoritarian” whose “depraved indifference to the climate crisis” does not define “Americans’ commitments or the character of our nation.”
“The clock is ticking so loudly” that “the rest of the world can hear it,” he stated. “With enough outrage, enough action and enough voices rising together, we just might have a chance to compel a reversal of this nonsense.”
Redford claimed that “millions” of people were “shocked” by Trump’s “short-sighted foolishness” in pulling America out of the Paris climate agreement.
Redford’s confused letter falls into a common logic trap of Left-wing thought.
He calls Trump an “authoritarian,” yet wants Trump to take authoritarian action on the matter of climate change.
The truth is, Leftism goes hand-in-hand with authoritarianism.
Also, Redford ignores the fact the Paris Climate Accord would’ve accomplished nothing other than severely damage the U.S. economy.
The chief carbon emitters by far — China and India — had no binding agreement to cut emissions.
Not only is China notoriously dishonest in terms of geopolitics, both China and India are in the process of industrializing and bringing people out of poverty.
They have no interest in cutting carbon emissions.
Plus, the United States cut emissions more than any other country despite withdrawing from the climate accord.
Redford’s climate rant is a misguided, rambling mess.
Beneath all of the rhetoric is a Left-wing attempt to seize control of the economy on environmentalist grounds.
Redford is reportedly worth $170 million, so he can lecture everyone else about how they need to sacrifice without feeling a dent in his own life.
Are you sick of being lectured to by out-of-touch Leftist celebrities?
