When posed by a fair question from a viewer, Governor Moonbeam really lays it on thick! The viewer asked the California Governor why the Democrats punish people for not have equal access to alternative transportation options. Instead of providing more transportation for his citizens, Gov. Brown fines them for not being on the mass transit line and hides behind global warming to just basically stealing from his voters.
You won your gas tax fight, but rural Californians didn’t like it,” Todd said.
“No, they don’t. They don’t like a lot of things. They voted against housing bonds, they voted for the Republican Cox who didn’t even make 40 percent [against Gavin Newsom],” Brown said. “There is the same divide in California as in America. The red is different than the blue, and it is associated definitely with rural areas.”
“We need more rapid transit. We need trains and we need more efficient cars and we need all of that, and that’s why this climate change is not just adapting, it’s inventing new technology,” Brown said.
Things took a very strange turn, however, when Brown compared liberals fighting climate change to that of soldiers fighting Nazis during World War II.
“I would point to the fact that it took Roosevelt many, many years to get America willing to go into World War II and fight the Nazis,” he said. “We have an enemy and perhaps very much devastating in a similar way and we have to fight climate change and the president has got to lead on that.”
According to The Washington Examiner, Brown will be replaced in the governor’s mansion in January by Democratic Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom. He said he will leave his second stint as California’s chief executive in the new year not having accomplished enough to “wake up the country, wake up the world” to the problem of climate change, particularly given the record-breaking wildfires that devastated his state this year.
