A professor who the Joe Biden administration has nominated to be the Comptroller of Currency recently said the quiet part out loud.
She revealed the one of the goals of the left is to “bankrupt” the coal, oil and gas industries for the sake of fighting climate change.
This is not only crazy, it’s dangerous. Not only would this destroy countless jobs, it would literally kill thousands of people.
Breitbart News reports:
Biden’s Comptroller of the Currency Nominee Declares War on Fossil Fuels: ‘Go Bankrupt’ to ‘Tackle Climate Change’
Saule Omarova, the Cornell law professor whom President Joe Biden nominated to be the Comptroller of Currency, has already created controversy over her writings about Marxism and her expressed hostility toward cryptocurrency and community banks. And now she has openly joined the Biden administration’s war on fossil fuels.
“For certain troubled industries and firms that are in transitioning,” Omarova said in a video posted on social media by the American Accountability Foundation (AAF). “And here what I’m thinking about is primarily coal industry and oil and gas industry.”
“A lot of the smaller players in that industry are going to probably go bankrupt in short order – at least we want them to go bankrupt if we want to tackle climate change, right?” she said.
“Zealots like Saule Omarova and the climate radical crowd have the failing Biden administration in their pocket as they irresponsibly call to bankrupt the fossil fuel industry that drives nearly our entire economy,” Tom Jones, founder of AAF, told Breitbart News. “An appointed official and policy so dangerously misinformed would destroy American energy jobs and stifle innovation.”

There are probably a lot of people who would not have voted for Biden if this was made clear before the election.
Biden’s pick of Moscow State University’s Saule Omarova for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency is a grave threat to our economy.
She wants to destroy energy independence, wants to nationalize consumer banks, & she has called to "effectively end banking as we know it." https://t.co/7leGlQYyYr

The left is insane. This woman’s ideas would kill people.
In case you thought monsters only lived in the past, you should know what she’s saying here. Mao’s “Great Leap Forward” communal farming garbage killed 45 million people.
That’s a FRACTION of how many people would die if oil, gas, and coal went away. A fraction. https://t.co/NCKn2XDgMW

This woman must not be confirmed.
