Jerry Brown Disses Rural Californians Over The Gas Tax Hike

Jerry Brown is leaving California in a complete mess and he is utterly oblivious to it. In one single interview he compared climate change to World War II and slammed rural Californian’s for not liking the gas tax!

In case you didn’t want to watch “Moonbeam” bloviate in order to keep your computer intact, let’s go to the article shall we?

First up: Jerry’s claim that climate change has the same challenges that we faced in WWII.

“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. Well, we have an enemy, though different, but perhaps, very much devastating in a similar way. And we’ve got to fight climate change. And the president’s got to lead on that.”

*Bangs head on desk 6 or 5 times. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!! The man does not know history well at all!

NOBODY wanted to go to war back then! Yes, there were many who wanted to help England but there were far too many others who wanted America to stay out of the fight. But good ole Jerry is now trying to tell us that Roosevelt spent years trying to get us into WWII and Americans resisted? The absurdity of all that is mind-boggling.

Don’t even get me started on how the “science” of climate change is wrong. Hey Jerry? It wasn’t climate change that started the Camp Fire a couple of months ago. It was downed power lines and an incompetent power company that is now facing multiple lawsuits. 

According to Jerry, CA needs to bite the bullet and get zero emission cars on the road, finally build that high speed train to nowhere, convert to wind energy, and make every new home have solar (no matter the cost). Funny thing about the wind energy. Wind farms have, at most, a 20 year shelf life. But I digress.

Jerry then blasted rural Californians for not liking the gas tax. Chuck Todd at least pointed out that this gas tax hurts those who don’t have access to public transportation. He’s right, but Jerry would have none of it.

“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,” Brown said, referring to his reelection’s vote margin.

“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,” he said.

Oh well…isn’t that special??!! I’m sure those in rural California…who feed the state and the entire country for that matter were thrilled to hear that higher taxes will cure everything if only they’d just vote Democrat!

Todd also asked about the yellow vest movement roiling France, in which many rural French people are protesting their own fuel tax and President Emmanuel Macron’s response to their concerns. Brown, however, said the problem is that France doesn’t tax rich people enough.

“In terms of what happened in France, I believe the president cut back on taxes for the very wealthy and at the same time he imposed what is essentially a sales tax and on working and poor people. So that is very different from our own tax,” he said.

He credited Californians with understanding that the high taxes and spending are “helping their community.”

We wrote about the yellow vest protests here, here, and here. Needless to say, the protests had merit. Higher fuel taxes at the rate of $6-8 a gallon are and will hurt France’s economy because it is impacting business at all levels.

Higher taxes for the sake of idiotic debunked hockey stick science doesn’t work. Higher taxes for the sake of virtue signaling and political correctness is why businesses are leaving California in droves. Higher taxes is a leading cause of increase in food prices.

Jerry Brown wants to tax the rich to fight the imaginary battle of climate change while slamming those in rural California who will be hurt the most. Great. Then he needs to start taxing himself first.

    Jerry Brown is leaving California in a complete mess, again
    FIFY

    it took Roosevelt many, many years to get America willing to go into World War II and fight the Nazis
    Only if you define “many, many” as “about 2”.

    It was downed power lines and an incompetent power company
    And crappy forest management, thanks to the greenies.

    The red is different than the blue
    Well, yes, you got that right. The blue don’t have any trouble at all spending other people into the poor house in the name of their “compassion”. The reds actually practice compassion.

    those in rural California…who feed the state and the entire country
    Ummm, “whole country” if your diet consists of wine, almonds and guacamole. Otherwise, plenty of states in the middle of America (wheat, corn, beans, beef, pork, chicken, milk, eggs, cranberries, etc….) would disagree with you.

    Jerry Brown wants to tax the rich to fight the imaginary battle of climate change
    Oh please, he wants to tax everyone so that he can spend, spend, spend on all sorts of feel-good money pits and enjoy the perks of his class.

      “Ummm, “whole country” if your diet consists of wine, almonds and guacamole”… Don’t forget ecoli laced lettuce! I guess that’s what you get when you have illegals from third-world shitholes picking your lettuce, after crapping in the fields, and wiping their asses with their hands, then going back to picking.. because that’s their “culture”… good stuff there…

    • steveH says:

      Jerry Brown is a delusional idiot, he’s just quit trying to hide the fact. (Said by a native Californian who finally got out after 64 years there.)

    • D E Wilson says:

      Tax the rich, I get so sick of rich politicians talking about taxing the rich, JUST WRIGHT A CHECK DEMOCRATS, they’ve been taxing the rich just like they were gonna build the wall before they are against the wall. Communist democrat are the biggest liars on earth, you could tax the rich but just never get around to it.

  • Jim says:

    “There is the same divide in California as in America.”????????

    So Brown admits California is not part of the United States of America? It’s a real world theme park for loonies.

  • Richard McEnroe says:

    Actually, Roosevelt thought Hitler and Mussolini were the bees’ knees, very exciting progressives, until they started conquering their neighbors. But by then Stalin was THEIR ally and the Comintern went full speed into guiding the American Left (you know, colluding) into keeping America out of the war.

  • mer says:

    That 20 year lifespan on wind towers also comes with decreasing efficiency after about the first 5 years too. Lower efficiency, more costly energy.

  • Darkwater says:

    It’s time to break out the yellow vests.

  • Caarol says:

    Jerry Brown sounds senile. Hope his replacement is a lot more sound than he is. But it’s California. Probably get someone just as looney.

  • LHB says:

    Uh no his replacement is even more radial left than he is. Gavin Newsom was not elected legally he was installed as governor to further the comunist agend in California . Browe made ballot harvesting legal 2 years ago in secret for just this reason. It was a felony before that time. And in fact it is also a felony in 39 other states and a misdemeanor in most others.no it’s tI’m to start shooting and serving arrest warrants on crooked politicians and then do a in depth accounting and an audit on the voting and polls and voter rolls and see who is guilty of massive voter fraud. Then hang them
