The average American citizen is struggling under the weight of insidious global liberalism and leftist millionaires are openly laughing in our faces.
We are living out our own “Let them eat Cake” moment as wealthy elitist demand that Americans bare the financial burden of unnecessary foreign wars and disastrous domestic policies — all while smearing us as “white supremacists” — and other semantical tools used to dominate the narrative.
Left-wing CBS late-night host Stephen Colbert, who boasts a reported personal net worth of approximately $75 million, professes to being entirely untroubled by soaring U.S. gas prices, admitting he takes comfort in the fact he drives a Tesla.
On Monday night the electric car evangelist laid out just why he travels with a “clean conscience” as he commutes into Manhattan while others outside his elite struggle to fill their tanks just to go to work or carry their family around.
“Today, the average gas price in America hit an all-time record high of over $4/gallon. OK, that stings, but a clean conscience is worth a buck or two. It’s important. I’m willing to pay $4/gallon. Hell, I’ll pay $15 a gallon because I drive a Tesla,” Stephen Colbert said.

While Colbert was lecturing his audience about electric cars it was revealed nearly one in three (30%) of Americans say they drove less in February, with the majority of those citing Joe Biden’s high gas prices as the cause for less time on the road.
While about 85 percent of Americans commute to work by car, 57% of Americans who drove less in February did so because of the high price of gas. Thirty-three percent said they utilized their cars less because their routine was different. Fourteen percent cited “other” reasons.
Late on Sunday night the price of oil surged again, putting further pressure on gasoline prices and inflation.
This quickly became apparent as the former all-time record high U.S. national average gas price was broken on Monday with a new price of $4.104, GasBuddy reported.
On a grand scale, Colbert’s words are merely part of the propaganda campaign to not only save Biden’s ass, but lay the groundwork for what will be the total destruction of the oil and gas industry and a radical “green” transformation of the U.S. economy.
This will be massive veer to the far-left and the single greatest redistribution of wealth the United States has even seen. This will take heavy lifting from the likes of Colbert, who’s job is to convince brain dead Americans this is all OK.
