Once upon a time, the greatest scientists in the world believed that the sun revolved around the Earth. Those who dared to challenge this assumption were treated to governmental persecution.
Though liberals like to label themselves as “progressives” to denote some sort of supposed societal evolution, they remain as tyrannical and backwards as those who persecuted dissenters hundreds and thousands of years ago.
The Earth has warmed and cooled innumerable times throughout history. The left, however, has crafted a narrative regarding alleged “global warming” that involves an assertion that the Earth is warming (although, sometimes they allege that it’s cooling), that this “climate change” is the fault of mankind and, most importantly, that governments should be more involved in regulating society to resolve this alleged problem.
The “climate change” narrative is perfect for liberals. It outlines a need for big, overly-regulatory government, it blasts capitalism as the purveyor of destructive greed and it lines the pockets of liberal cronies all while allowing the liberal masses to further this agenda under the guise of it being a purely moral imperative.
Now, the Democrats who have long orchestrated this scam are taking it a step further; the Democrat Party committee in charge of crafting their official platforms has unanimously voted to support the prosecution of “climate change” skeptics who challenge the left’s agenda.
On Friday, the Democrat Party’s council that has been tasked with crafting the official policies of the Democrat Party voted to support the prosecution of energy companies who the Democrats have claimed has “misled” the public with regards to the alleged dangers of global warming.
“Another joint proposal calling on the Department of Justice to investigate alleged corporate fraud on the part of fossil fuel companies who have reportedly misled shareholders and the public on the scientific reality of climate change was also adopted by unanimous consent,” according to the Democratic National Convention’s website.
Already, 16 Democrat Attorneys General have banded-together to craft a modern inquisition and these investigations are not merely targeting oil companies, but have also demanded records and communications between conservative think tanks and scientists.
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has announced her support for the inquisition and the platform supporting it.
“As Democrats, we believe that our country’s greatest strength is its people, and we’re committed to the values of inclusion and opportunity for all,” Wasserman-Schultz said in a statement. “Our candidates ran strong campaigns that addressed the priorities of the American people, and I am proud to say that the drafting process has reflected our commitment as a party to elevating their voices.”
The DNC, evidently, values people and inclusion- just not the right of people to have a dissenting viewpoint.
The platform also calls for not merely an “all of the above” energy plan, but generating 50% of our energy needs from renewable energies by 2026 and 100% by 2050.
What the left neglects to mention as they rant and rave against oil companies who have supplied energy for the world is that as these oh-so-enlightened liberals rant about the supposed greed of “Big Oil,” many have deep financial interests in furthering “green technology,” a direct competitor to “Big Oil.”
So, we are expected to believe that it is merely a coincidence that as leftists rant about the cozy relationship conservatives have long had with “Big Oil,” they, themselves, are cozying to the industry that serves as a direct competitor.
It seems shoveling money to cronies in “green” industries is no longer enough. What better way to edge-out competition than by furthering a narrative about killing the Earth (thus making it a defensible moral issue) and then prosecuting those who dare disagree with the bought-and-paid-for “science” supporting this crony relationship.
The sad reality is that there is likely much we can learn about our environment and what affects it. However, the discussion surrounding this matter has been irreparably tainted by liberal greed and an active effort to silence discussion and manipulate the “science” that has been fabricated to support their outrageous agenda.
