The Voilent Rhetoric Of Political Debate – Climate Nazis
Posted by Tory Aardvark
On January 8th Jared Lee Loughner attended a meeting held by United States Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords for her consituents in Tuscon, Arizona.
Lougher came armed and with intent to kill, before he was overpowered 6 people were dead and 14 wounded inclunding Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
Almost immediately the lefty liberals started on Twitter blaming the right for the shootings, and of course Sarah Palin was to blame.
Leading the attack on Palin was “Hanoi” Jane Fonda, for those too young to remember, Jane Fonda is the traitorous bitch who when her country was at war with North Vietnam, went to that country and was photographed sitting on an anti aircraft gun sighting it on her own country’s aircraft. Lampost and piano wire is to good for Ms Fonda.
The left have taken this opportunity to try and smear the right, and allege other threatening and violent action for the biggest failed left wing liberal scam of all time, Climate Change
and leading the bugle call in Britain is The Guardian.
Even the debate on climate change, where the key issues are frequently highly scientific or economic, has attracted frequent death threats to researchers and election TV ads in which a prospective Senator shoots the cap-and-trade bill with his rifle.
This was Democratic Senator Joe Mancin who shot a copy of King Hussein’s Cap and Trade Bill as a grassroots gesture to try and keep his seat, Aardvark blogged this as Climate Change Who Cares When My Political Career Is At Risk, a voilent act or an incitement to commit violence it was not.
But the example of global warming, where arguments rage over datasets, reveals the terrifying atmosphere that can be generated even in an area that lacks the visceral punch of issues such as healthcare.
My colleague Leo Hickman reported last year on the repulsive hate mail received by climate scientists following the “climategate” emails:
The scientists revealed they have been told to “go gargle razor blades” and have been described as “Nazi climate murderers”. Some emails have been sent to them without any attempt by the sender to disguise their identity. Even though the scientists have received advice from the FBI, the local police say they are not able to act due to the near-total tolerance of “freedom of speech” in the US.
[The late climate scientist Stephen] Schneider described his attackers as “cowards” and said he had observed an “immediate, noticeable rise” in emails whenever climate scientists were attacked by prominent right-wing US commentators, such as Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.
A wonderfully selective rendetition of the facts.
The left and their warming alarmist friends have always referred to people like Aardvark as Climate Change Deniers, the use of the word “denier” is meant to imply holocaust denial and AGW denial are one and the same thing.
The issuing of death threats is a just an occupational hazard in the world we live in, Aardvark has personally received death threats over certain AGW posts, threats of violence and sexual intimidation are regulalry dished out to female bloggers and tweeters that Aardvark knows.
What causes the rise? Publication of his email addresses on the sceptic website Climate Depot presumably helped. The comment Schneider made in July make sobering reading in the light of the Giffords attack:
Schneider said the FBI had taken an interest earlier this year when his name appeared on a “death list” on a neo-Nazi website alongside other climate scientists with apparent Jewish ancestry.
“The effect on me has been tremendous,” said Schneider. “Some of these people are mentally imbalanced. They are invariably gun-toting rightwingers. What do I do? Learn to shoot a Magnum? Wear a bullet-proof jacket? I have now had extra alarms fitted at my home and my address is unlisted.”
Schneider was far from alone in the US with Michael Mann among others also reporting death threats. Phil Jones, the scientist at the heart of “climategate”, also received death threats but the phenomenon is generally far less frequent in the UK.
But then how many Climate Realists have walked in to the Discovery Channel Offices with a gun and explosives demanding that Discovery only broadcast programs supporting the AGW lie?
I (Damian Carrington) have received a handful of threats by email and phone myself, which given my low profile is a measure of the extent of the problem. My better-known colleagues George Monbiot and Leo Hickman receive more.
The situation is way out of hand, it has to be said.
It is time to return to reasoned political debate between civilised adults, but given the orchestrated vitriolic hate of the left there would seem to be little chance of that.
