Just when you thought the federal government could get more absurd, they cooked up this ridiculous proposal.
And, of course, leftist whackos far and wide are quick to come to the defense of yet another massive expansion of government authority.
But Joe Biden’s latest target hits a little too close to home for many Americans.
Federal agency flirts with banning gas stoves . . . for the children
Earlier this week, the US Consumers Protection Safety Commissioner Richard Trumka, Jr. announced that the agency is exploring a possible ban on gas stoves because of a potential risk to both human health and, of course, the environment.
Tens of millions of Americans use gas stoves, so the impact on this ban would be far reaching and costly.
Gas stoves are also popular in the restaurant industry, so such a ban would have a devastating impact on that industry.
Not surprisingly, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to social media to support the ban, but was hilariously exposed for posting a picture of herself in her kitchen standing in front of, you guessed, a gas stove.
Pictures have also surfaced of Jill Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Kamala Harris using gas stoves, so how soon will we see them apologizing to the woke mob for using these dangerous gas stoves that are threatening to destroy our planet and future generations?
The American Gas Association blasted the potential ban in a statement, saying “Attempts to generate consumer fears with baseless allegations to justify the banning of natural gas is a misguided agenda that will not improve the environment or the health of consumers and would saddle vulnerable populations with significant costs.”
Safety Commission Chairman walks back statement
According to media reports, Consumer Product Safety Commission Chairman Alex Hoehn-Saric clarified that his agency has no plans to prohibit gas stoves.
While Hoehn-Saric denied the claims that they are going to ban gas stoves, he didn’t walk back the fact that his agency is looking into potential hazards caused by gas stoves.
Americans shouldn’t feel any comfort from the walk back.
After all, a government that will ban incandescent light bulbs would most certainly work to ban gas stoves if they thought it would fight global warming or “save the children.”
This feels like just a trial balloon to see how people would react to the government taking action to ban a widely used appliance in the name of “science.”
Until Congress or the Supreme Court rein in these out-of-control federal agencies, frankly none of our rights are safe as they will find excuse after excuse to ban anything in the name of safety via executive fiat.
