The Democratic Party has long been criticized as an organization of opportunity, who have very few qualms about harnessing the power of tragedy for their own political gain.
And, as the party grows ever more wary of the 2022 midterms over the horizon, it appears as though they have no problem simply admitting this ghoulish tactic outright.
A top Biden official said Sunday that the global food shortage crisis would push farmers toward relying on more green energy.
“Never let a crisis go to waste,” U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Chief Samantha Power told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on “This Week.”
Speaking of the global consequences of Russia’s war with Ukraine, the Biden official said that fertilizer shortages would provide farmers the opportunity to “hasten” their “transition” from fertilizer to more “natural” resources.
The full statement wasn’t much better.
“Fertilizer shortages are real now because Russia is a big exporter of fertilizer. Even though fertilizer is not sanctioned, less fertilizer is coming out of Russia,” she explained. “As a result we’re working with countries to think about natural solutions like manure and compost and this may hasten transitions that would have been in the interest of farmers to make eventually anyway. So never let a crisis go to waste.”
And this isn’t the first time the idea has come up, either.
President Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm made similar remarks back in March, pushing for Congress to use this crisis to pass “clean energy” legislation and to “wean off” fossil fuels.
“This crisis in Europe, and the crisis our allies are facing and the reduction of supply of natural gas and oil from Russia creates a moment that we should be acting,” she said at a clean energy summit.
If one thing can be said for the Democrats of late, it is that they are incredibly proficient at saying the quiet part out loud.
