One of the most frustrating things about American politics today is the left’s tendency to attack those they disagree with as “racist” or that they are simply taking their marching orders from industry. This, as opposed to leftist politicians and advocacy groups who receive massive funding from anti-industry organizations.
Alex Epstein is the author of Fossil Future and one of the best advocates for energy freedom. He recently testified before the US House of Representatives (see footage below) and was immediately accused of these things by Rep. Stansbury, a Democrat who represents much of Albuquerque and CD1 in Congress.
Instead of addressing my detailed argument against @JoeBiden depleting the SPR, @Rep_Stansbury tried to discredit me as a White Supremacist and industry stooge.
Thankfully, @laurenboebert and @realannapaulina gave me the opportunity to respond.
