Crazy CA Rep. Barbara Lee: Global Warming Will Turn Womenfolk Into Common Whores
So you know how from time to time we have a good laugh at the logic of wingnut politicians and preachers who claim a causal link between two obviously disparate things, like "taking prayer out of the schools led to Sandy Hook" or "Gays, abortion, and the ACLU caused 9/11" -- that sort of thing? Well, thank goodness, now the rightwing has an example of a completely insane causal connection being predicted by a Democrat, so we suppose we'd better shut up! You see, California Rep. Barbara Lee has this crazy idea that global warming will turn women into prostitutes!
Last week, Lee introduced a resolution in the House claiming that climate change will have a "disparate impact" on women in poor countries, which is ridiculous for several reasons because 1) Climate change is a myth, and 2) even if it were real (and it isn't), why is Lee so intent on promoting inequality by noticing it?
The story first ran at Dead Breitbart's Home For Patriots With F-150s But Dodge Rams And Silverados Are OK Too, then was later picked up at FoxNation, and they all agree that Barbara Lee is nuts!
Check out this insane "logic" of hers:
“Women will disproportionately face harmful impacts from climate change,” Lee’s resolution reads. It continues claiming, “Food insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health.”
Get real, lady! Nobody ever turned to prostitution for survival. Women just do that because they're sluts who were educated in the Marxist government schools and never got any guidance from a strong male figure like Ronald Reagan, Ben Carson, or Andrew Breitbart, PBUH.
Just to add to the madness, Lee suggests:
[W]omen, who are “often underrepresented in the development and formulation of policy regarding adaptation to climate change,” are doubtless in the best position to offer policy ideas.
What a crazy leftist! We suppose she wants to stop the sea levels from rising by having consciousness-raising sessions where womyn read Andrea Dworkin to each other while they braid their armpit hair! Just don't go burning your bras, ladies, because that'll release "CO2" into your precious Gaia's atmosphere! Then again, if sea levels really do rise (which they won't), we can probably save the coastlines by just piling up all the useless "Women's Studies" textbooks end to end, since everybody knows that those classes aren't good for much of anything but creating dykes! HAW HAW HAW!
Besides, if "Climate Change" were really a threat to global stability, we'd be hearing about it from the Pentagon, not some half-stoned California congresswoman from the Left Coast.
