At a recent U.S. House hearing on Strategic Petroleum Reserves, Representatives Cori Bush and Lauren Boebert engaged in a heated exchange regarding the views of energy expert and philosopher Alex Epstein. Bush accused Epstein of having white supremacist views, which Epstein quickly denied.

Boebert was quick to come to Epstein’s defense, slamming Bush for her accusations. Epstein then clarified his views, stating that he has fought his entire life for freedom around the world and wants everyone to have the same opportunities he has in the United States.
At a congressional hearing, commie racist liar Cori Bush accused an energy expert of having "espoused White Supremacist views” for saying western culture is superior. (It is.)

It is clear that Representative Cori Bush was attempting to discredit Epstein’s views on energy and petroleum reserves by falsely accusing him of being a white supremacist. This is yet another example of the left’s attempt to silence conservative voices and opinions, even when those opinions are backed by facts and data.
Alex Epstein has presented his arguments for fossil fuels at some of the most prestigious universities in the world, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and Duke. He has also addressed executives and employees of several Fortune 500 companies. It is clear that Epstein is an expert in his field and should not be silenced or discredited simply because his views do not align with those of the left.
The left’s attempt to discredit Epstein is yet another example of their hypocrisy and double standards. They claim to be advocates of free speech and open dialogue, yet they are quick to silence anyone who disagrees with them. The left needs to stop their attempts to silence conservative voices and allow for a more open and honest dialogue about important issues such as energy and petroleum reserves.
