A Shot in the Foot as Virtue Signal

Dana Mathewson

Somehow I don't think this will have the desired effec.

From Powerline:

The Democratic National Committee voted over the weekend to ban donations from fossil fuel companies, HuffPost has learned.

The resolution ― proposed by Christine Pelosi, a party activist and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s daughter ― bars the organization from accepting contributions from corporate political action committees tied to the oil, gas and coal industries. The executive committee voted unanimously to approve the motion. . .

End excerpt.

My, my! I keep hearing that the donkeys are trailing the elephants in fundraising, yet here they are, adopting policies that will cut their income even more. Doesn't sound smart to me. It's just more virtue-signalling.

Hayward finishes the article with a real kicker: one I'm sure we could all see coming:

Here’s a thought: how about "walking the walk” by literally . . . walking. How about the DNC pass a resolution that forthwith all Democrats will refrain from buying gasoline, natural gas, and coal-fired electricity. Sell all your cars and ride bicycles everywhere instead. Hold the next Democratic National Convention online to save all those carbon emissions from delegates who will otherwise fly.

More confirmation—as is any more is needed—that liberalism has been reduced to gestures to make liberals feel good about themselves.
