On Saturday, far-left Democrat Sen. Martin Heinrich shared an article advocating for doing away with gas ovens, instead to opt for induction (electric) ones.
But his take on the article was what raised eyebrows.
Heinrich wrote while sharing the link, “Would you let your babysitter smoke in your house? Having a gas stove in your home may be just as bad.”
It’s unclear what Heinrich’s obsession with banning gas stoves is all about, but Heinrich has been on this tear for years.
In July of 2021, Heinrich wrote on Twitter, “When you trade out your gas stove for an electric one you lower your monthly energy bills, create jobs, and move us closer to a zero-emissions future. And a bill I’ll be introducing would give you money back for doing that. This is how we build a clean energy powered economy.”
Paul Gessing of the Rio Grande Foundation had some thoughts on Heinrich’s most unhinged comments comparing owning an electric stove to letting one’s babysitter light one up while watching kids.
Gessing wrote on Twitter, “I’m at a loss for words. Cooking on your stove is like letting your babysitter smoke in your house? WTF? Heinrich is the one smoking something.”
Another commenter wrote, “He should focus on solving actual problems, not conjuring up imaginary ones. Which is unlikely.”
One person wrote in response, “And the Hoodwink continues to descend on into Crazy La la levels. We so need to clean house of these clowns.”
Heinrich previously bragged on social media about supposedly electrifying his home, sharing a video of him installing a new heat pump to supposedly save the planet. We previously reported:
Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM), who lives in Silver Springs, Maryland outside of Washington, D.C., bragged … about how he was supposedly “electrifying” his home with expensive new appliances including a new heat pump.
Heinrich shared a video and wrote on Twitter, “The decisions we make around our kitchen tables about the cars we drive and the appliances we use in our homes directly impact the health of our climate & our families. Today, I’m taking the next step to electrify my home and installing our second heat pump.”This comes as 18.63% of New Mexicans are living below the poverty line and cannot afford to heat their homes during the winter, much less invest in eco-left appliances to “electrify” their homes for the “climate.”
Henrich is a radical enviro-Marxist who supports Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) in her attempt to pass the Green New Deal on a federal level.
