Students at The University of Miami loved the idea of the Green New Deal… But they seemed to change their mind after hearing what was actually in it.
The phrase climate change is leftist speak for… the weather. As in: “Everyone talks about the weather but no one does anything about it.”
This latest leftist hysteria is an elaborate ruse to grow government and impose mountains of new regulations and ever heavier taxes on the American people.
Does anyone remember Paul Ehrlich’s 1968 “Population Bomb” hysteria?
When I was a child, there was a bum — a homeless, schizophrenic, alcoholic, malodorous, hysterical bum — who used to show up on Ocean Parkway and Avenue N in Brooklyn, my neighborhood, my hometown, my world, my universe.
The astute blogger Bookworm Room has just published an important essay by our mutual friend Wolf Howling about so-called climate change, a leftist religion that seeks to enforce its dogma on a global scale. The climate-change movement brooks no dissent; its green inquisition will not hesitate to destroy the reputations and livelihoods of any who might dare to question its fanatic doctrines.
Make no mistake about it: When the Soviet Union collapsed, the true believers of Marxism-Leninism migrated to the various eco-movements that seek to consolidate power and redistribute wealth on a global scale.
We are entering a true crisis. Left unchecked, the eco-fascists will succeed — with the enthusiastic collaboration of the Democrat party — in installing a tyrannical authority that will render the United States Congress and the Constitution mute.
The one defining characteristic of the left is their refusal to recognize evil, much less fight it.
It views genuine threats to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — such as communism — as ignorant, xenophobic preoccupations, and lectures us that the true dangers lie elsewhere: in capitalism, colonialism, racism, gender discrimination… the usual suspects.
As Iran threatens hegemony over the Middle East’s oil fields under the protection of a nuclear umbrella, as the nation states created according to the Westphalian model fall like dominoes in the Muslim world and Islamist warlords and their paymasters in Tehran gain control over vast tracts of territory, America’s progressives (who are actually regressive) assure us that Islam has nothing to do with Islamic terrorism. Which means that neither Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Iran, nor the fifty-odd repressive hellholes that define themselves as Islamic states are actually Islamic.
