Just when we thought that “climate czar” John Kerry would take the cake with his arrogant posture towards the workers that Biden’s global warming agenda will displace, along comes Vice President Kamala Harris to prove that there’s no bottom to this administration’s lack of empathy. In an interview with WSAZ-TV last Thursday in West Virginia, Harris bizarrely suggested that out-of-work coal miners can find gainful employment in the field of…de-activating abandoned land mines?
“Job creation around, for example, all of those skilled workers who are in the coal industry and — and — and transferring those skills to what we need to do in terms of dealing with reclaiming abandoned land mines,” she said.
So, does Harris actually think that “coal mines” and “land mines” are related in some way? Does she believe that the skills used to mine coal are comparable to the skills needed to clear a battlefield of land mines that can prove dangerous to wayward children in war-torn countries? Is this an insight into her lack of intelligence or did she misspeak in some way? Or did she just hear the word “mine” and let her mind free-associate into land mines?
“I saw it; I couldn’t believe it,” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said of Harris’s interview. “No one called me. We’re gonna try to find a bipartisan pathway forward. I think we need to. But we need to work together. That’s not a way of working together, what was done.”
Oh, it’s not working together to come up with loony-tune solutions for climate change by wiping out half the jobs in your home state? Well, Joe, you’ve got more sense than the average Democrat, but maybe you should have thought about that before supporting this buffoon and his radical running mate. Ya think?
As for Harris’s preposterous suggestion about land mines, we’re fairly sure she was probably talking about reclaiming the abandoned coal mines – not the kind of land mines that explode and send your limbs flying into the sunset. We don’t know for sure, of course, but that’s the only thing that makes the slightest amount of sense. But, really, the mere fact that she thinks she has some authority to prescribe a new career path for displaced coal miners is nearly as ridiculous as the “land mine” suggestion, so we’re not about to let her off the hook completely.
