Liberals live by the motto “never let a good crisis go to waste.”
And they have revved that up into overdrive during Hurricane Harvey.
But Pope Francis stepped in it big time with some outrageous comments.
The Pope often times strays into the territory of political activist.
But his extreme left-wing views have alienated millions of traditional Catholics.
He continued a pattern of leftist political rants when he tried to link Hurricane Harvey to the fight over so called “climate change.”
Eco Watch reports:
“Pope Francis, who has a strong belief in the science of climate change, called upon world leaders on Wednesday to “listen to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor, who suffer most because of the unbalanced ecology.”
Francis and Patriarch Bartholomew I, the head of the Orthodox Christian Church, will issue a joint message to commemorate the annual “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation” on Friday, the Press reported.
In 2015, the Pope designated Sept. 1 as “a precious opportunity to renew our personal participation in this vocation as custodians of creation,” framing the preservation of the environment as a moral responsibility.
Similarly, Bartholomew—who backed Francis’ 2015 encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si—once said:
“There has never been so much turmoil on our planet, but there has never been greater opportunity for communication, cooperation and dialogue. Basic human rights such as access to water, clean air and sufficient food should be available to everyone without distinction or discrimination. We are convinced that we cannot separate our concern for human dignity, human rights or social justice from the concern for ecological preservation and sustainability.”
There is no evidence linking Hurricane Harvey to “climate change.”
That’s fake news.
But Francis wasn’t the only leftist to try and exploit the tragedy to advance the leftist agenda.
Kellyanne Conway shut down CNN’s Chris Cuomo when he tried to bring global warming into the discussion.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Kellyanne Conway took CNN’s Chris Cuomo to task for trying to shift the Hurricane Harvey conversation to climate change during a Wednesday night interview.
“One of the themes that’s coming out of this…is opening up a discussion about climate change,” Cuomo said. “Is the president, is the administration, open to that conversation?”
Conway brought a high level of sassiness to the conversation, telling Cuomo, “Chris, we’re literally trying to help the people whose lives are under water and you want to have a conversation about climate change.”
Cuomo argued that examining the role of climate change could reduce the number of people affected by storms, to which Conway snarked, “are you really going to play climatologist?”
Liberals aren’t interested in science.
Francis and Cuomo pounced on Hurricane Harvey to push the global warming agenda because liberalism is based on emotion.
And the left believes they can use the natural emotions of Americans wanting to help those in need by “doing something” in a time of crisis to enact their job-killing, freedom stealing, global warming agenda.
It’s similar to how the gun grabbers wait for a tragedy so they can exploit dead bodies as emotional blackmail to enact gun control.
