RUSH: The Politico caught up with Arnold Schwarzenegger at South by Southwest — that’s a tech-and-culture festival in Austin, Texas — where Arnold revealed his next big plan. The former California governor is working with environmental wackos to sue Big Oil for “first-degree murder.”
I tell you, everybody is just going stupid!
Yeah, Schwarzenegger says there’s no difference between Big Oil and Big Tobacco. He says the tobacco companies knew for years that their product killed people but they didn’t come clean. They denied it. Same with Big Oil, says Schwarzenegger. “The oil companies knew from 1959 on” that fossil fuels would cause global warming. They knew global warming would kill people. Yet they kept selling gasoline.”
He says Big Oil companies are irresponsible for not putting warning labels on their products. He says every gas station, every car, everything that uses gasoline should have a warning label.
“I don’t think there’s any difference” between Big Oil and Big Tobacco, says Schwarzenegger. “If you walk into a room and you know you’re going to kill someone, it’s first degree murder; I think it’s the same thing with the oil companies.”
It looks like he’s serious. But he and his global-warming-wacko activists may have miscalculated a key detail.
Picture this: Big Oil fights this lawsuit to the hilt in court. Finally, the entire global warming hoax is legally exposed and terminated. (chuckling) Where do these people get to stupid? Where does it happen? When!
