On Monday, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) used the devastating Oklahoma tornado as an excuse to bash Republicans for denying global warming and implied Republicans were responsible for actually allowing the destructive natural disaster to occur.
So, you may have a question for me, Whitehouse said on the Senate floor. Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate cliff like a bunch of proverbial lemmings and disgrace ourselves? Ill tell you why. Were stuck in this together. We are stuck in this together."
After blaming natural disasters in Oklahoma, Alabama, and Texas on global warming and Republicans, Whitehouse continued his rant by criticizing the Republicans he blamed for then asking the government for federal aid dollars.
"When cyclones tear up Oklahoma and hurricanes swamp Alabama and wildfires scorch Texas, you come to us, the rest of the country, for billions of dollars to recover," he said, according to the Daily Caller. "And the damage that your polluters .......

Look at him. It’s obvious the boy ain’t right in the head. How they can get a mouth that big in Rhode Island is beyond me.
Well then, I suggest Sheldon go to the next place where a super cell is forming, hold up his hands and tell the tornado to go away. It would help him if he knows how to speak in tongues.
Stupid democrats use up oxygen that useful people could be breathing. Get back under the desk Sheldon.
This guy puts out more hot air than the rest of the world combined. Every time he opens his mouth, stupid pours out.
Yes. Those two little girls would be wearing burkas and married to some smell effing Arab that doesn’t even wipe his own a$$
How many more Dems are going to stand on the dead bodies of children to push their political agenda?
WWABD: What Would Arron Burr Do?
The saddest part is that his low information constituents will firmly believe that.
This kind of idiotic hyperbole from a Democrat politician blaming deadly tornadoes on global warming and, by association, blame Republicans (the sensible ones, anyway) for rejecting the scam is the kind of foolish overreaching that makes them appear unhinged and unreasonable, even to apathetic Americans...which, sadly, seem to be in the majority.
The face of the new Left in American politics. Cold blooded rat bastard. Couldn’t let a “good crises” go to waste long enough to let the survivors first recover their dead before seizing the political opportunity.
Even he was not as evil as Obama or his Muslim brothers
R. I. is a write off...
My bad....thinking of Benedict Arnold....IIRC AB challenged Hamilton to a duel and killed him.
The only thing global warming has done is make Al Gore and loons like him rich. Man wouldn't it be nice to be able to control the weather,since I vote conservative I will try and bring up a tornado and wipe out Washington..every building there then we can start over again..
Scores of school children dead.
So where are the Democrats calling for a National Tornado Registry??
The tornado outbreak in 1954 was caused by atmospheric nuke testing, according to Congress.
Being a Democrat, I’m surprised he didn’t blame the Jews, or the Tea Party, or the “racist hatred” of the mobster-in-chief and his “Tonton Macoute” IRS.
I could have done w/o the photo. :)
The stupidity of some of our “leaders” boggles the mind.
Those idiots absolutely believe it. Guess they never saw the Wizard of Oz. There were no global warming fools back when that movie was made. Tornadoes have been tearing through the heartland for centuries. Liberals define the word STUPID.
Demonrats have no scruples. I am ashamed to be a Rhode Islander with idiots like this in our statehouse. I am truly a stranger in a strange land. They (RI politicians) have corrupted all that the Constitution stands for.
I think we know the answer: "Pas d'ennemis à gauche".
Well, just so long as he isn’t politicizing a tragedy.
Rats love to dance in babies blood and spew their BS.
Sounds like he majored in stupidity in undergraduate school.
“..Sounds like he majored in stupidity in undergraduate school...”
I majored in stupidity, That is what higher learning is (more or less) since PC and Liberalism took over.
It’s coming to a fight. They clearly want it, they want it finished once and for all, this obscene “blaming” of an outgroup (us) for a natural disaster (plague, floods, etc) is always a prelude to killing.
Congressman James E. Van Zandt was one of several congressmen who blamed the June 4, 1953 test shot. It’s in the congressional record. They were castigated for making such a ridiculous claim. AGT was sort of like globa warming, all sorts of things got blamed on The Bomb.
He retracted his statement.
This is really irritating the living hell out of me. I have been in the severe weather warning business for over 30 years. Tornadoes happen. Some years are worse than others. Always has been...always will be. Does climate change? Of course. Climate is NOT a constant. Never has been...never will be. Is it human caused? Please. What makes a tornado a disaster? Answer: When humans are in the path. So in that sense you could say this was human caused.
What is the difference between an EF5 going across a wheat field and one going through a metro area? Meteorologically speaking...nothing. But you’ll never hear about the one going through the wheat field, even though the formation processes are the same.
I worked an F5 tornado in south Kansas more than 20 years ago. It took quite a few lives. Had it tracked a mile to the north, the impact would have been beyond horrific. A mile to the south, and it would have been only a local news item. Same storm. Just a different location. That is what makes disasters...location, location, location. The storms will always be there, whether there are humans or not.
This Congressman is a complete idiot who obviously would be over his head as a Walmart greeter. Since they don’t have them anymore, I guess he had to settle for politics.
Yes, you are correct. Once it starts, there will be no end to it until one side or the other is gone.
It’s going to go the way they think it will.
