Beyoncé, Stevie Wonder use Hurricane Harvey telethon to attack global warming skeptics

Hillary Clinton supporter Stevie Wonder

Music legend Stevie Wonder kicked off Tuesday’s widely televised benefit for hurricane victims by slamming climate change skeptics as either blind or unintelligent.

Before launching into a rendition of “Lean on Me,” along with the Houston Gospel Choir, Mr. Wonder praised love in action and called on people to “love and value” the planet.

“We’ve come together today to love on the people that have been devastated by the hurricanes,” he said. “When love goes into action, it preferences no color of skin, no ethnicity, no religious beliefs, no sexual preferences and no political persuasions. It just loves, as we should begin to love and value our planet.

“And anyone who believes that there is no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent. Lord, please save us all,” he said.

Mr. Wonder, who supported Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, has been blind almost since birth.

Beyonce, who is from Houston, also spoke out about the topic during the “Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief.”

“The effects of climate change are playing out around the world every day,” she said, The Daily Beast reported. “We have to be prepared for what comes next.”

“National disasters don’t discriminate,” she said. “They don’t see if you’re an immigrant, black or white, Hispanic, or Asian, Jewish, or Muslim, rich or poor. It doesn’t matter if you’re from Third Ward or River Oaks, we’re all in this together.”

    If Beyoncé and Wonderkind want to demonstrate what
    A**holes they are, let them.

    Just because most of us already know that,
    doesn’t mean they can’t demonstrate it.

    It’s just redundant.

    These commentators, through either ignorance or cunning, omit two key words: MAN MADE. Climate change we’ve got, but MAN MADE climate change we HAVEN’T GOT.

    So how long exactly have hurricanes been occurring Stevie ? Surprised he didn’t blame it on the Republican President . You know the party that fought to abolish slavery .
    How many decades ago did Stevie Wonder actually produce a good song ?

    When celeberty wackos do this is reminds me of the funny song by Weird Al Yanklovich, DARE TO BE STUPID and these two are perfect examples of what im squawking about like the Live Earth Concerts The Million Mom March USA for Africa and its annoying song WE ARE THE WORLD or some wackos doing a concert against logging or sitting in trees on plywood platforms and plunking wooden Guitars

    Meanwhile these arrogant liberal d-bags make a cameo appearance at some fund raiser and they strut the stage as if they have solved the suffering by simply making their political decrees. This is much more about personal PR rehabilitation and image massaging than anything meaningful. There are the kind of celebrities who will say, “Lets join hands!” as they slap your face…

    This proves that leftist politics trump all for these people.
