BACKLASH BUILDS: Bernie BLASTED for Suggesting ‘Population Control’ Needed to Fight Climate Change

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.05.19

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is under fire after suggesting the use of “population control” and women’s “reproductive rights” to combat the growing threat of climate change.

Sanders was speaking at a televised CNN town hall event Wednesday when he was asked if “population control” was needed to reduce carbon emissions across the planet.


“In poor countries around the world where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies, and where they can have the opportunity through birth control to control the number of kids they have, is something I very, very strongly support,” said Sanders.

The backlash against Sanders’ comments grew Thursday.

APOCALYPSE NOW: Beto Says Texas Will Soon ‘Become Uninhabitable,’ Unable to ‘Sustain Human Life’

Failing presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke continued his climate crusade during CNN’s televised town hall Wednesday; claiming the city of El Paso will become “uninhabitable” to humans in the near future.

“My son Henry, who’s 8-years-old, he asked me, ‘Dad, if you win and you become President, we get to live in El Paso, right?’ I said no, we’d live in Washington, DC. But he knew that our community will become uninhabitable, will not sustain human life along this current trajectory unless something changes,” O’Rourke told the audience.

Sen. Bernie Sanders made similar dire predictions at the event; claiming population growth was a key aspect in fighting global warming.

“Empowering women to curb population growth seems reasonable to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?” asked an audience member.

“The answer is yes. Women have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions… In poor countries around the world, where women do not want to have large numbers of babies, where they can have the opportunity to use birth control to control the number of kids they have, is something I very strongly support,” said Sanders.

BERNIE: ‘Reproductive Rights’ in Third World Countries Needed to Combat ‘Climate Catastrophe’

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders doubled-down on his fiery rhetoric regarding a potential “climate catastrophe” during CNN’s town hall event Wednesday; saying “reproductive rights” of women around the planet is a key component in combating global warming.

“Empowering women to curb population growth seems reasonable to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?” asked an audience member.

“The answer is yes. Women have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions… In poor countries around the world, where women do not want to have large numbers of babies, where they can have the opportunity to use birth control to control the number of kids they have, is something I very strongly support,” said Sanders.

Sanders comments come hours after he abruptly snapped at a crying baby in New Hampshire; demanding the child “keep it down” while discussing universal health care.

The self-described Democratic Socialist’s reaction left many in attendance surprised, with some shocked at his insensitive behavior.


The video emerged on social media hours after Sanders labeled President Trump the “worst president in the history” of the United States on ‘The View.’

“I love Nancy but she and I disagree on this issue,” Sanders said. “I think the way you beat Donald Trump — and I must say that in my view, Donald Trump is the most dangerous president probably in the history of this country.”

“I work[ed] with your dad, I work with other people on issues where we can come together,” he told co-host Meghan McCain. “That’s what I think American politics is supposed to be about. But you have a president today – and again, it gives me no joy to say this – he is a pathological liar.”
