Rep. Dan Crenshaw reacted to the news that the Biden administration was pleading with OPEC to increase production.
Simultaneously, the Biden administration is accused of targeting American oil and gas companies as part of the Left’s goal of combating “climate change.”
For Rep. Crenshaw, this is completely backward. The Biden administration has reached a “whole new level of stupid,” Crenshaw says.
Rep. Crenshaw continued by adding it is “not just stupid, but anti-American.”
“Reaching a whole new level of stupid, the Biden administration asks OPEC (foreign oil) to increase production while making every possible attempt to destroy CLEANER American oil and gas. Not just stupid, but anti-American.”
He tweeted, “John Kerry — worth hundreds of millions — telling blue-collar workers to just ‘go to work to make the solar panels.’ By the way, solar will pay on average $20K less than oil and gas jobs. John Kerry thinks you should just shutup and accept it. No.”
Take a look:

More from Daily Wire:
On Wednesday, Biden urged a conglomerate of 23 oil-producing countries, led largely by Russia and Saudi Arabia, to increase oil production. The White House’s statement by national security advisor Jake Sullivan read:
Higher gasoline costs, if left unchecked, risk harming the ongoing global recovery. The price of crude oil has been higher than it was at the end of 2019, before the onset of the pandemic.
While OPEC+ recently agreed to production increases, these increases will not fully offset previous production cuts that OPEC+ imposed during the pandemic until well into 2022. At a critical moment in the global recovery, this is simply not enough.
President Biden has made clear that he wants Americans to have access to affordable and reliable energy, including at the pump. Although we are not a party to OPEC, the United States will always speak to international partners regarding issues of significance that affect our national economic and security affairs, in public and private. We are engaging with relevant OPEC+ members on the importance of competitive markets in setting prices. Competitive energy markets will ensure reliable and stable energy supplies, and OPEC+ must do more to support the recovery.
