Feds Move Against Gas Stoves

There is no basic component of our lives so innocuous that moonbats won’t ban it mainly because they can. The petty tyranny starts in Petri dishes of wokeism like Berkeley, where authoritarians banned gas hookups in new buildings as of 2020. It moves on to blue states like California, which is banning gas-powered furnaces and water heaters by 2030, and New York, which is coercively phasing out gas heating. With Democrats in power, it soon goes nationwide, potentially moving beyond harassment actions like the recent stealth tax on natural gas to a federal ban on gas stoves — although it looks like the Regulatory State may hold off for now on confiscating politically incorrect stoves currently in use:

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission backtracked on claims it was considering banning all gas stoves across the United States over health concerns.

Richard Trumka Jr., an agency commissioner, said that potential regulations would only ‘apply to new products’ in a tweet Monday. ‘CPSC isn’t coming for anyone’s gas stoves. Regulations apply to new products,’ he added.

At least we don’t have to worry about heavily armed FBI agents showing up to confiscate our current stoves as dinner cooks. We just won’t be able to buy new ones.

Progressives borrowed this approach from a similarly totalitarian ideology, Islam. Mohammad allowed Christian churches to exist in the territory he conquered. But construction of new churches was forbidden.

If the name Trumka sounds familiar, that’s because Richard Trumka Sr was a left-wing labor leader. Big Government has as incestuous a relationship with Big Unions as it does with Big Media; all are run by power-hungry Democrats.

In his backtrack Monday, Trumka added that people who choose to switch to electric stoves would receive an $840 rebate due to President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act.

Only Democrats would pretend to reduce inflation by printing increasingly worthless money to hand out for free. If a private company were run by people this economically inept, it would go bankrupt within a month.

Democrats have it in for natural gas because it is a cheap, abundant, clean-burning fossil fuel. Energy must be expensive so as to lower our standard of living, because people are harder to rule when they aren’t focused on just trying to survive. This is what drives the global warming hoax, and is probably the impetus behind recent claims that the gas stoves we have been using for generations could cause higher rates of asthma and even cancer.

As always with moonbats, the jihad against gas stoves has a cultural Marxist component. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Rep Don Beyer (D-VA) sent a letter to the CPSC last month demanding action against gas stoves due to the “cumulative burden on black, Latino and low-income households that disproportionately experience air pollution.”

More to the point, low-income households are disproportionately affected by unnecessary regulations that raise the cost of household appliances. Rather than banning stoves, people should be encouraged to turn on the range hood for proper ventilation.

Trumpka told Bloomberg gas stoves were a ‘hidden hazard,’ and added that ‘any option is on the table’ and ‘products that can’t be made safe can be banned.’

Next, they will announce that forks must be phased out so that you don’t poke yourself in the eye with one.
