The left loves to parade their supposed tolerance and claim that they are committed to diversity. However, they are only committed to promoting the kind of “diversity” where everybody lives as they do and believes the same things that they do.
In reality, the left abhors diversity of ideas or thoughts. They abhor different cultures that do not make them look fashionably chic and enlightened. They readily-embrace Muslim sensitivities, but reject Christian principles as “backwards.” They embrace Mexican culture replacing American culture, but cannot abide the South having their own distinct culture.
Nowhere is diversity more despised by the left than in the diversity of ideas. Uniform thinking is integral to the continuation of liberal ideology and when this uniformity is challenged, liberals get nasty.
That is why the left has begun a jihad against those who don’t buy their bought-and-paid-for “science” that contends that “climate change” is real.
For many, whether the Earth is warming and whether that is the result of man’s actions remains an unanswered question. It largely remains unanswered because the left was eager to embrace a narrative supporting “global warming” and began rigging the “science” behind it decades ago. Now, the “Science” surrounding this issue has been irreparably contaminated with political and financial shenanigans.
Meanwhile, as the left postures as morally righteous eco-warriors, they downplay the importance of the multi-billion-dollar industry that relies upon not only “climate change” existing, but such supposed change occurring as a result of mankind’s actions.
To help solidify their lucrative narrative, liberals have worked to discredit and smear any who dare to question the iffy “science” supporting the continuation of this agenda. They have taken to labeling those who question this un-objective “science” as “deniers” with the hope of attaching such people to the reputation of other “deniers” like nutcases who deny the existence of the Holocaust.
Then, the left began questioning if they could prosecute those who don’t believe as they do. Currently, 16 attorney generals are mounting a modern inquisition to try and determine the legality of prosecuting oil companies that have fought their “the sky is falling” narrative concerning “climate change.”
In Obama’s America, dissent has become illegal.
Like all tyrannical belief systems, modern liberalism also demands a heaping scoop of indoctrination and restriction of opposing viewpoints. We see this kind of logic in North Korea and China where information that conflicts with the party line is strictly forbidden.
Last week, The Portland Public Schools Board in Oregon voted to ban all books and any materials that cast any doubt on the existence of man-made “climate change.”
The passed resolution requires all schools to thoroughly purge themselves of any materials that even hint that there is not consensus regarding the existence of “climate change” or that suggests that such weather changes are the result of mankind’s actions.
“A lot of the text materials are kind of thick with the language of doubt, and obviously the science says otherwise,” said Bill Bigelow, the presenter of the resolution. “We don’t want kids in Portland learning material courtesy of the fossil fuel industry.”
Bigelow, evidently, is uncomfortable with the oil industries having a say regarding the “science” behind “climate change,” but like so many liberals, does not appear to question the logic of listening to the “scientists” who are supplied by green technology industries who similarly rely upon “scientists” to support their conclusions and validate the agenda upon which their industry (and hundreds of billions of dollars) rests.
The issue surrounding “climate change” is far from settled. As the issue becomes more politicized, weather patterns that are more severe than usual, that are less severe than usual or weather that remains unusually static are all cited as results of “climate change”- an ambiguous term that has been adopted so as to encompass any possible weather phenomenon.
Scientists, however, are not in agreement that “climate change” is occurring and even more are convinced that it is not the result of mankind as the Earth has been heating and cooling since creation.
A petition is being circulated by the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine which currently lists nearly 32,000 signers (including 9,000 PhDs) who maintain,
“there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.”
The left has worked to try and besmirch those who doubt the existence of “climate change” by calling them “deniers” in the hopes that it will create a linkage between those who deny “climate change” and those who deny the Holocaust- morons often labeled as “Holocaust deniers.”
If the left is willing to invoke Nazism to prove their point, it is only fair that we on the right point-out an “inconvenient truth.”
The Nazis, too, were thoroughly committed to eradicating dissent. One of their favorite ways to creating consensus was to ban books that offered a differing viewpoint than that of the party line.
How long will it be before conservative books are being joyously burned at rallies with delighted liberals insisting that “the debate is over”?
