On Saturday, the Associated Press published an article detailing New Mexicans’ outrage over Joe Biden’s complete and total assault on the energy industry (as promised) in the state. It interviewed people of both political parties and the New Mexico Oil & Gas Association (NMOGA), encompassing how they felt betrayed by Biden.
But the cries of outrage come after years of warnings from the conservative side of the aisle that Joe Biden’s destructive policies would harm New Mexico—a heavily oil and gas reliant state. And NMOGA bankrolled the Democrat Party in the 2020 election and well before that, even taking a “neutral” stance on New Mexico’s “Green New Deal,” which will completely wipe out the fossil fuels industry by 2050. Now, the end to that industry looks like it’s coming a lot sooner.
Last August, the Piñon Post ran a story about how Joe Biden’s fracking ban would decimate the New Mexico economy, but the state went blue in 2020, whether that victory for Biden was legitimate or not. Now, conservatives are yelling “I told you so!” on social media after New Mexicans’ worst fears have become a reality.
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wrote on Twitter, “Who could possibly have predicted this?”
“New Mexico voted for Biden so they are getting what they signed up for. Hard to feel sorry for people who drive their car off a cliff and then complain on the way down,” wrote author and conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza.
Tim Murtaugh, communications director for President Donald J. Trump’s 2020 campaign wrote, “If only someone had warned that Biden would be an enemy of the energy industry and imperil energy-producing states.”
West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey wrote an encouraging note to New Mexicans, saying, “WV welcomes the opportunity to work with New Mexico and any other state which care about protecting energy jobs and want to preserve America’s energy independence.”
Steve Deace, television show host on The Blaze wrote, “You voted for it, New Mexico. Own that poop. Receive your reward in full. And kneel before Zod.”
Podcaster Vince Deo tweeted a comical video about the Biden administration’s assault on energy producers:
Joel Pollak of Breitbart News wrote, “Biden and the Democrats don’t want people to provide for themselves. They want people to be dependent on the government — without a thought as to how the government is supposed to generate revenue. Notably, @JoeBiden has hardly ever had an actual job…. Imagine doing this to an industry in the middle of an economic crisis. Oh — yeah, they voted for him. They knew. Or they would have known, if the media were not such shameless liars.”
The criticisms keep on flowing in on social media, however, the message appears clear as day: New Mexico voted for Joe Biden and they are getting what they deserve. Biden “won” New Mexico, but he very well could have been aided by massive voter fraud, as detailed in the Piñon Post’s report here.
