Skip to comments.Democratic Senator uses Okla. tornado for anti-GOP rant over global warming
Posted on 05/20/2013 5:20:12 PM PDT by ConservativeInPA
While many Americans were tuned into news coverage of the massive damage from tornadoes ravaging the state of Oklahoma, Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse took to the Senate floor to rail against his Republican colleagues for denying the theory of anthropogenic global warming.
Whitehouse spent 15 minutes chastising GOP senators and justified his remarks by alluding to states that seek federal assistance in the wake of natural disasters.
So, you may have a question for me, Whitehouse said. 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. 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. And the damage that your polluters and deniers are doing doesnt just hit Oklahoma and Alabama and Texas. It hits Rhode Island with floods and storms. It hits Oregon with acidified seas, it hits Montana with dying forests. So, like it or not, were in this together.

Id love to get that Democrat Senator face to face with me for 5 minutes, you know what..I wouldnt need 5 minutes, how about 2 minutes, that is all I would need to beat his brains in with a baseball bat
Pull this thread ... someone beat me to posting it by a few seconds.
Sick bastard, the bodies are still being recovered.
Wheldon Shitehouse. His name says it all.
Time to dust off my old, “Drive 90, Freeze a Yankee” bumper sticker.
Just another classic example of the the severe mental disease known as liberalism. Communists all.
If you can answer that, great. If you can't then shut the f^&k up you motherf*&king ghoul.
Apparently democrats don't see dead children as a horrible tragedy. It's always a "political opportunity".
There is no global warming ... and to use that argument now is bizarre given the extremely mild Spring
these people make me sick.
Katrina was another prime example when the couple of Dems were heard talking about it on the plane figuring out how to use it to their advantage.
Today the fringe network MSNBC tried to paint getting answers to all this corruption as a witch hunt.
These sick lunatics just can’t keep politics out for one issue, one minute or one second.
To them politics is a way of life, getting power and pushing their social changes is everything to them , more so than the country , people dying or the law being broken.
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse—so stupid he doesn’t even know he’s stupid.
..never takes long for scum to crawl from underneath the rock
Pure liberal slime. No proof of global warming, even though we are actually going through global cooling. Coldest spring in nearly ever and of course liberal slime like this open his butt mouth and vomit his garbage out.
Astounding, how stupid the Democrat Party has become, just plain stupid.
Hmmmm. Thank you for posting this. It will confirm my fellow Oklahomans ire at holier than thou Yankees.
Several years ago I heard that if all you have in your toolbox is a hammer, then every mechanical defect looks like a nail.
Words can not reply/respond/rebuke a man like Whitehouse. Truly, he is not worth the air he breathes.
Btw, SW, cyclones turn in a different direction than tornadoes. Maybe that is how you get your screwy views. You don’t even know the difference between them.
And the last one was in our lifetime. The tornado season has been slightly delayed by cold weather. In the past week, hot air has been able to move north. But guess what, there is still cold air, high pressure systems coming from the north. Without the cold air, there are no tornados. If there was such a thing as global warming, tornado alley would be moving north towards Canada and tornado season would be happening earlier in the year.
Astounding how stupid the people of Rhode Island are.
Hell, for that matter, Astounding how butt stupid 51% of our country is...
The rat is a scum bag. Its a disease and they should be quarantined.
Sheldon is being naughty and stupid, again. Yep, he really is that dumb.
Perhaps we can share rides?
Worse than the Wellstone memorial. This is who they are.
I think we need to find a designated driver first.
Lived in Tornado alley all my life it just happens and we that live there know it’s not Global warming.
Mother Nature has warmmer air and cooler air and when they collide and you have a Tornado. What are you gonna do push the jet stream back up to Canada grab some smarts Idiot. 50 trillion dollars are not gonna stop a F-4 and neither is Scientific Rhetoric or RI BS!!
Now make with the cash and be snappy about it. Do what we say, and nobody gets hurt.
What a bunch of insane screed. Has he had a mental breakdown? I would vote that puppy out in a HEARTBEAT!
Looks like a fairy to me....
Message to Sheldon Whitehouse:
Sir, I don’t know if you have a soul. I don’t know if you have a brain.
What I do know Sheldon, is that you could at least wait until the children are memorialized and buried before spouting your global warming bs.
Sheldon, it seems your behavior has a pattern. You didn’t wait until the children of Sandy Hook were buried either before trying to take our civil rights away.
Like your savior bho, you don’t have to scratch deep to find the marxist.
So the reality of 4-5 real, democrat scandals are nothing to be concerned about but the fantasy of human caused warming is just cause for further impoverishing us all. It’s a mental illness.
They are pulling out dozens of children who have drowned in the elementary school and this sick jerk rants about global warming? Why couldn’t it have been him who drowned instead! I’m visiting his govt website!!!
You mean e global warming that stopped in 1998?
This is sick, absolutely sick.
How appropriate that their party mascot is a giant jackass.
He’s completely wrong even if one believes in manmade global warming. The lower temperature contrast from north to south will cause fewer strong tornadoes. And it probably already has since there is a century or so decline in strong tornadoes. Similarly if the Senator knew something about it, he might know that tornadoes peak in April and May, not July. But he knows less than nothing about it.
I wish one of those fathers of a child killed by the tornado would pay a visit to that congressmen and set him straight.
Demons and devils come from many walks of life, senator. Senator is Global Warming (as you call it) created by a demon or devil or do you blame God?
Newsflash for the dim idiot. There is a tornado season in Oklahoma and this is the middle of it.
Why would you need a bat? His brains are already mush. The tools you were born with would be sufficient and satisfying.
My mouth fell open and stayed there. Such breathtaking stupidity and craven opportunism are almost beyond comprehension.
They just can’t STFU! Can they?
Someone please kick this guy’s ass!
I would ask this “Gentleman” if I were to see him personally ‘Are you on drugs?’, because no normal person would say something so stupid!
He needs to drug tested.
senator democrat demon answers and says this is the fault of humans. okay senator, would it all be better if you and your family had never been born?
He’s a zombie.
That Filthy low-life human cockroach,The Rat’s just have just have to politicize everything.
The simple scumbag Whitehouse didn’t get the memo that the scam was exposed.
Sorry, Sheldon - - no “energy taxes” and “carbon trading” windfalls for you and your scumbag party.
Go play in the street, you little weasel.
