Tool of the Week: Aaron Rodgers and the climate change brigade

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON — Aaron Rodgers fumbled again.

The Green Bay Packers MVP QB was among several Woke celebrities, climate activists and Native American leaders signing their names to a letter calling on President Joe Biden to shut down the Dakota Access pipeline.

Environmental wackos have been putting on a disorderly show for years at the pipeline, located NEAR the Standing Rock Reservation.

“…(W)e respectfully urge you to reverse another harmful Trump Administration decision and immediately shut down the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) during its court-ordered environmental review,” the letter states.

What Rodgers and his leftist pals don’t mention are the thousands of good-paying jobs — including potentially hundreds in Wisconsin. They probably didn’t care about the 10,000 jobs lost on Biden’s first day in office, when he bowed to environmental extremist demands and signed an executive order shutting down construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

They certainly welcome the loss of about 115 million barrels of crude oil taken out of North American production, with the corresponding output losses of natural gas and natural gas liquids, which would bolster American energy independence.

The celebrities that signed on to the letter like the sound of “carbon neutral” and rabidly respond to the extremist dog whistle of “climate change.” The real-life consequences to thousands of people who don’t make tens of millions of dollars a year tossing a football or starring in a Woke Hollywood movie be damned.

One lawmaker may have expressed it best when he recently told Empower Wisconsin, “We can forgive Aaron Rodgers for being 1-4 in NFC championship games. We can maybe forgive him for dissing milk. But costing hundreds of Wisconsinites their jobs is a bridge too far.”

The Packers quarterback and his out-of-touch leftist friends are, collectively, Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.

  • No mystery here. Aaron Rodgers is now engaged to Shailene Woodley, a Hollywood nut-job and certified left-wing crazy. Woodley joined the mob in North Dakota when the the pipeline reached the edge of the water on the reservation a year or two ago and resulted in the trashing and destruction of the area of the mobs encampment. Rodgers should know better than to be seduced by the likes of Woodley. He will regret it.

  • One of the hardest choices that I made this year was refusing to watch any NFL games. Their support for BLM, a self described Marxist organization, their disrespect of the police, the military, and Americans in general by kneeling during the national Anthem, was too much for me to stomach. Now this ignorance again promoted by an overpaid primadonna. The Packers have become an organizational embarrassment. The sponsors need to find a better venue for advertizing. I for one could care less if Green Bay becomes “Untitled Town”.

  • Stop spending on these over paid Assholes. They are always demeaning women, (rape, drugs, abuse). NFL, NBA, College. These assholes may have destroyed sports, the military and every institution that made this country a good place to live. Don’t believe me. Ask ICE or boarder patrol or Customs and Immigration? You better wake up….☹️🤤
