Victor Davis Hanson joined Tucker Carlson on Friday night to discuss the Biden Administrations energy policies.
Hanson laid out with evidence how Biden’s policies to destroy energy production in America is devastating to the middle class and frankly immoral.
Victor Davis Hanson: I think we have the morality upside-down, Tucker. The Green morality of this green nirvana that hasn’t arrived yet is immoral. Because when you have plentiful oil and it’s moderately priced then you empower the middle class. They can drive to work, they can heat their homes. You’re not involved in Middle East or Eastern European hot spots over energy. Or your friends and neutrals have affordable gas and oil in Europe. And we can do it a lot more environmentally sound in the west as Russia or Iran. But when you don’t, you get involved in optional Middle East Wars or in a time of inflation the middle class can’t heat their homes, etc.
If I was in control of the largest oil and gas producer in the history of civilization, as Joe Biden was. And I really did not believe that all of that was good. I would do the following. I would take ANWR and a million barrels off the market. I would take the Keystone Pipeline and cancel it and sacrifice a million barrels coming from Canada. I would cancel all federal leases, and I would not have another million or two barrels. I would jawbone banks not to lend to frackers and horizontal drillers. I would tell some of our closest friends, the Greeks, the Cypriots, the Israelis, we don’t want you sending cheap natural gas into Italy to help energy for Europe. And then I would cancel any criticism of the Russian-German pipeline. And if I did all of that I guess I would deliberately trying to hurt the middle class, our allies and empower people with petrodollars like Russia, Iran and Venezuela.
It should be understood by now that these policies by Joe Biden and Democrats are designed to hurt the American people and destroy the country. There is no other way to explain it at this point.
God save us from this evil.
