Jerry Brown, also known as Moonbeam, while he was in Paris at the Climate Summit, described the totalitarian state he envisions and that he will continue to grow in California. It’s just what the Founding Fathers envisioned – a coercive central state, over-regulated and over taxed (yes, irony here).
It’s hard to believe the following are Brown’s exact words but they are and he means them. This was reported by the Sacramento Bee.
In Paris at the climate summit, the Bee reported, Brown urged a small crowd to “never underestimate the coercive power of the central state in the service of good.”
“You can be sure California is going to keep innovating, keep regulating,” the Democratic governor said. “And, shall I say, keep taxing.”
Brown actually wants to take credit for the “coercive power of the state”. Regulations, he believes, “work hand in glove” with innovation.
“You do have to have, at the end of the day, a regulation, a law,” he said. “Progress comes from well-designed regulatory objectives that business then follows.”
And if that doesn’t work, there are always, fines, imprisonment, humiliation and all the other great things the government can do when unhinged as it is now.
Green energy can’t survive without taxpayer dollars so the green energy business leaders promote subsidies with the line that all innovation comes from government and the money the government takes from the unwitting public.
During an interview with The LA Times, Brown stooped to the lowest form of debate, calling those opposed to his climate change efforts “troglodytes,” adding: “This is a creature that lives in caves. As people hear that word, they’re going to say, what does all that mean? And when they think about it, they may want to walk outside their caves and see the sunshine.”
He teamed up with faux-Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger and the two agreed that “great minds think alike.”
Yes, that’s the first thing that came to my mind.
In commemoration of being Moonbat of the Week, we’ve commissioned our own portrait of the totalitarian Brown.
