Actions have consequences, and bad actions often have bad consequences. In much the same way that liberal policies have burned Venezuela’s economy to the ground, California environmentalist policies have unleashed a catastrophic fire that has so far claimed the lives of 11 people and countless animals.
This is what liberal policies always lead to: Destruction, pain, suffering and death.
We pray for those who are suffering through this catastrophe, but above all we pray that the people of California might wake up and realize this disaster is self-inflicted and can be prevented. But that can only happen if dangerous liberal policies that promote these catastrophes are finally stopped.
Years ago, the California government began interfering with local efforts to bulldoze the deadwood out of forests as part of a forest management plan to reduce fire risk. This was all done, of course, under the banner of “environmentalism,” usually with emotional pleas to “save the wildlife” by leaving all the forests alone.
Year after year, the deadwood built up. It was only a matter of time, of course, before a fire would be ignited by lightning (Mother Nature’s natural fire starter). Fueled by the tremendous underbrush that was no longer being cleaned out of the forests, the fires erupted with catastrophic ferocity.
“Extreme environmentalists have shut down public access. They talk about habitat, and yet they are willing to burn it up,” warned Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke in an interview with KCRA. “This has nothing to do with climate change. This has to do with active forest management,” he said.
Liberals, you see, don’t believe in forest management. They don’t want fire breaks to be maintained, and they don’t want fire access roads to “disrupt” forest ecology. So in their effort to prevent humans from having any impact at all on forests, they prevent commonsense management activities from taking place that would help prevent forest fires.
This is how liberals think: They demand authoritarian control so they can create a liberal utopia, but when their ideas are implemented, they deliver absolute Hell.
“There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor,” tweeted President Trump. And he’s right. “Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests.”
Liberals, of course, blame “climate change” instead of their own disastrous policies. As Zero Hedge explains:
As University of Washington Climate Scientist Cliff Mass pointed out in an analysis of the factors contributing to California’s wildfires, climate change isn’t driving climate change; rather, poor land management policies and population growth in once-rural areas have been by far the biggest contributors. According to one recent study cited by Mass, the risk of fire increased in once-rural areas as populations increased, placing buildings, plants, vehicles and other ignition sources in fire-prone areas that were once sparsely populated.
Liberals always create their own Hell… the problem is they want to take the rest of us with them
