Wipeout: Now Leftists are Coming for Your Toilet Paper
Wipeout: Now Leftists are Coming for Your Toilet Paper by Selwyn Duke for The New American
Do leftists want to MADA, Make America Dirty Again?
A clue is provided by some of the cities they run, dotted as they are with human feces.
Now there’s a related clue, too: Some leftists would make toilet paper the next plastic straw (which itself was the next SUV) and start a war on it.
Just consider this Kimberly Strassel tweet, brought to us by American Thinker’s Monica Showalter:
And now they are coming for your toilet paper….. To be clear, folks, there is NOTHING the left would not seek to control in people’s daily lives under the guise of fixing “climate change.” They will even tell you with what to wipe. https://t.co/GGcXoMa0PM

Showalter remarks that leftists want to make us like socialist Venezuela, where, aside from being reduced to eating cats and dogs, people find toilet paper in short supply. She also quotes the NRDC (National Resources Defense Council) itself:
You may not realize it, but the toilet paper in your bathroom likely comes from some of the most important — and threatened — forests in the world. In fact, Procter & Gamble is driving the devastation of one of the last great forests on earth to produce Charmin, the world’s biggest toilet paper brand — made out of 100 percent virgin forest fiber.
Now we’re running out of time: Between 1996 and 2015, more than 28 million acres of Canada’s boreal forest were logged. This logging threatens the ways of life of hundreds of Indigenous communities, releases hundreds of millions of tons of climate-altering carbon stored in the forest into the atmosphere every year, and devastates iconic wildlife.
Procter & Gamble must own up to its environmental impact and stop making its toilet paper from virgin pulp rather than sustainable recycled materials. The cost to communities, species, and our climate is simply too high to keep flushing our forests away.
Showalter wonders why the NRDC is targeting Charmin, stating that those buying it actually use less paper because it’s so absorbent; she asserts that some leftists have actually advocated it for this reason.
