AOC Backs Calls to Ban Gas Stoves, Claims They Cause Brain Damage

Celebrity Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has spoken out in support of the Biden administration’s calls to ban gas stoves from American homes.

As Slay News reported, the Biden admin is considering a nationwide ban on gas stoves over claims they emit “harmful pollutants.”

According to a report by Bloomberg, Biden officials claim that a ban on the appliances being used in American homes “is on the table.”

The far-reaching admission was made by U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) commissioner Richard Trumka Jr.

Trumka reportedly told Bloomberg that gas stove appliances are a “hidden hazard” that “can be banned.”

“Any option is on the table,” Trumka told the outlet during an interview.

Ocasio-Cortez took to social media to say she backs by the move and argued, without evidence, that gas stoves cause brain damage.

AOC mocked Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) on Twitter for tweeting that he would never give up his gas stove.

The congressman’s comments backfired, however, after the exchange went viral.

“Did you know that ongoing exposure to NO2 from gas stoves is linked to reduced cognitive performance?” AOC wrote in response to a tweet from Jackson.

Jackson vowed that he would rather die than give up his gas stove.

“I’ll NEVER give up my gas stove,” he declared.

“If the maniacs in the White House come for my stove, they can pry it from my cold dead hands.

Actors, politicians, and conservative activists made fun of Ocasio-Cortez for her claims linking gas stoves to “cognitive performance.”

Many asked AOC how many gas stoves she owned while others joked that her proposal was a direct attack on chefs like Gordon Ramsay.

But AOC doubled down by arguing that the “proposal” to ban gas stoves was a perfectly reasonable one.

“The way we are handling it in NYC isn’t to force people to switch what they already have,” she said.

“Folks can keep their appliances, and new buildings in NYC will have gas-free stoves.

“As for federally, any proposal from the CPSC would go through a quite lengthy review and input process.”

“Dems are literally insane,” actor Nicholas Tutora wrote.

He also joked that the gas stove was one of many inventions that will be banned by the Biden administration: “Dems will be banning the wheel next.”

“Is this an attack on @GordonRamsey,” Republican Congressional candidate Max Avery tweeted.

“How many [gas stoves] do you have?” actor Matthew Marsden asked, in comments that were echoed by a large number of Twitter users.

Multiple users also posted pictures of First Lady Jill Biden cooking spinach with a gas stove indoors.

Freedom Speaks Up CEO Seth Weathers tweeted that Ocasio-Cortez might do well to check her own cognitive ability after using gas stoves.

“Is that what happened to you?” he asked.

Virginia state delegate Nick Freitas argued that cooking at home is an important requirement for freedom.

“Did you know that it’s a lot harder for the government to arbitrarily cut off your access to power if you’re using gas as opposed to electric?” he asked.

“Or is that really the point?”
