I don’t remember when I first heard the term “climate-change denier” but I do remember that I experienced the chill of fear.
As we know, the left is adept at coining catchy phrases, bumper stickers that are easy to remember, and though dumb in the extreme, give off an air of political wisdom.
War is Not the Answer.
The Jews who survived the Holocaust beg to differ.
Quite often war is the only answer.
In any case, we recognize Holocaust denial as a political act that seeks to legitimize modern Jew-hatred by rewriting Jewish history. It’s a particularly malignant ideology whose real purpose is to lay the groundwork for a future Holocaust. And, no surprise, Holocaust denial is widespread in the Arab Muslim world.
Therefore labeling someone a climate-change denier places that person in the same category as a Holocaust denier—beyond the pale, deserving only hatred and contempt.
It’s a vicious rhetorical trick.
Speaking of rhetorical tricks. Remember the phrase global warming? Well, they dropped that because it was too restrictive. Climate-change accounts for, well, everything. They can’t go wrong because basically they are describing the weather.
If it snows, it’s climate change.
If it rains, it’s climate change.
If the sun is shining…
You get the point.
Iranian Prime Minister Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is one of the world’s most prominent Holocaust deniers. But, you’ll be glad to know, he is not a climate-change denier.
Ahmadinejad has, on numerous occasions, threatened to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. But hey, everyone’s entitled to their little eccentricities, right?
The Mullahs are now racing towards the nuclear threshold. This is an existential threat to the Jewish State and will place the entire Gulf region under Persian hegemony. In short, a terrorist, proudly Jew-hating state state will call the shots.
Ahmadinejad is also racing to Copenhagen.
Cynically, he has jumped on the climate-change band wagon because he understands that it has nothing to do with saving the planet, but is in reality, a radical leftist movement whose agenda is to centralize power in the hands of a select group of technocrats in order to redistribute wealth, a polite term for theft.
Nuclear emboldened Holocaust denier Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, terrorist financier Hugo Chavez and genocider Robert Mugabe, monstrous tyrants one and all, also understand that the international left are pliable ideologues who enthusiastically make common cause with mass murderers and Jew-haters, all in the name of, ahem, environmentalism.
If you are a liberal and believe in climate-change—let’s be honest, it’s a religion, the science is, at best, modern alchemy—you must now climb into bed with some of the world’s most brutal regimes.
Iranian Prime Minister Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe plan to address negotiators at international climate talks in Copenhagen next week.
The three leaders are listed in a line-up of more than 180 government officials published in a United Nations schedule of speakers. Each head of state will have up to three minutes to address roughly 700 delegates, reporter, observers and civil society groups.
The assistant president of Sudan, Nafie Ali Nafie kicks off the speeches at noon on Wednesday.
Guess who’s also racing to Copenhagen?
President Barack Obama is expected at the meeting on Friday.
Fab-u-lous. Another Obama speech.
