A common refrain of the angry Sun monster-fearing left is that every unfortunate weather event can be blamed on “climate change.”
Never mind that hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. all occurred before the Industrial Revolution, much less that those deadly weather events like hurricanes have actually grown less frequent in the past decades and aren’t getting more severe, leftists want to blame human activity for them, so they just ignore the evidence and go ahead and do so.
Thanks to that mindset, they went ahead and blamed the recent, deadly tornadoes that tore through Kentucky on climate change and, you guessed it, Republicans.
Eric Swalwell, the Democrat that slept with a Chinese spy, for example, took to Twitter to place the blame on Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, as if the former doctor was somehow to blame for a tragic tornado:
We should do all we can to help our Kentucky neighbors. God be with them — they are hurting. But do not for one second forget that @RandPaul has voted against helping most Americans most times they’re in need. https://t.co/JkZQOZ4HuG

Similarly, Fox News reports that:
Noel Scovell, a former writer and producer for Late Night With David Letterman, also blamed Paul and fellow Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell, who also represents Kentucky.
“Sorry Kentucky,” Scovell tweeted. “Maybe if your 2 senators hadn’t spent decades blocking legislation to reduce climate change, you wouldn’t be suffering from climate disasters. If it’s any consolation, McConnell and Rand have f’ed over all of us, too.”
That tweet has apparently since been deleted.
Another crazy leftist was so mad at Sen. Paul for the tornadoes that he/she even called for violence against him:
Thanks but when we want action we look to your neighbor https://t.co/BMBnOyRpKV

Once the Orwellian “Two Minutes Hate” against Rand Paul for…somehow being to blame for tornadoes was over, leftists went ahead and started blaming climate change for the unfortunate weather event. Mark Ruffalo, the crazy leftist that plays “the Hulk” in Marvel movies, said:

President Brandon, managing to speak for a teleprompter without too many issues, also blamed climate change, saying:
All that I know is that the intensity of the weather across the board has some impact as a consequence of the warming of the planet and the climate change. The specific impact on these specific storms, I can’t say at this point. I’m going to be asking the EPA and others to take a look.
We’re as prepared as any government has ever been for these disasters. What warning was there, was it strong enough and was it heeded? You asked me about whether or not we were gonna be able to do. Part of it is acknowledging that the likelihood of fewer weather catastrophes, absent a continued movement on dealing with global warming, is just not gonna happen.
That second paragraph is completely wrong, as adverse weather events have trended down in recent decades despite continued leftist predictions of doom.
Leftists, however, tend to not be too concerned with the facts, so they continued to blame the hurricanes on climate change, with posts like the one below popping up all over Twitter:
Climate Change: What does it look like?
This is absolutely heartbreaking & it's a direct result of climate change. Believe me, I know it's tempting to scream, yell & question why people are so slow to accept reality but we must have conversations w/ skeptics. https://t.co/fIBVet8tDL

So, apparently, Rand Paul and pollution are to blame for a random series of deadly tornadoes in Kentucky. Thank goodness leftists informed us of that unscientific “fact.”
