Democrats are constantly trying to out “progressive” one another. That leads them to say some really wild stuff.
But you need to hear this Democrat say the dumbest thing you’ll hear all year.
Former Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has said some pretty dumb stuff in recent years.
You may remember that she once claimed that the sound of a heartbeat of a baby in the womb is actually an invention of the patriarchy.
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at 6 weeks. It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body away from her.”

That’s pretty bad, but another Democrat is trying to one-up her stupidity with another level of stupidity that we didn’t think was possible.
Congressman Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) recently went on CNN and found himself discussing fossil fuels with CNN’s Wolf Blizter.
Bowman outright claimed that America needs to ban fossil fuels right now to prevent “severe weather events.”
“We need to stop drilling for fossil fuels completely … we need an expedited way to get us to clean, renewable energy, or we will continue to have these severe weather events,” Bowman said to Wolf Blitzer.

Georgia Governor, Brian Kemp (R), took to twitter to put Bowman on blast noting that banning fossil fuels in America would literally cause a collapse of the economy as it would put millions upon millions of Americans out of work in an instant.
“Far left Democrats are doubling down on policies that would destroy the American energy sector and hurt hardworking Americans struggling through 40-year-high inflation,” Kemp said on Twitter.

This just might take the cake for one of the dumbest things a radical progressive in Congress has said in recent months.
There is absolutely zero evidence that fossil fuels are leading to “catastrophic weather events” like the radical climate extremists would have you believe.
No respected scientist has ever tried to attribute any tornado, hurricane, or tsunami to the use of fossil fuels in America.
Furthermore, banning fossil fuels would quite literally destroy the American economy once and for all.
So many factories are reliant on fossil fuels to be able to produce their products. It’s not just cars that rely on fossil fuels to operate.
So-called “natural resources” like wind and solar do not have the infrastructure to support the American energy grid and our economy as a whole. Bowman’s suggestion would be the end of America, simple as that.
But we wouldn’t expect a dense Democrat like Bowman to be able to understand that.
