Americans skeptical of so-called “man-made climate change” could lose their Second Amendment rights under Obama’s latest executive order considering that psychologists have said “global warming” skeptics were “mentally ill.”
Over the past several years, various psychologists and media personalities have suggested “climate denial” is a “dangerous” mental disorder which threatens the lives of billions of people.
For example, in 2009 the the University of West England hosted a major conference on “climate change denial” but shockingly, the conference was organized by psychotherapists and psychologists.
And the University of Oregon’s Kari Norgaard suggested skeptics “must be recognized and treated” for their aberrant sociological behavior.
“The idea that ‘climate change denial’ is a psychological disorder – the product of a spiteful, wilful or simply in-built neural inability to face up to the catastrophe of global warming – is becoming more and more popular amongst green-leaning activists and academics,” journalist Brendan O’Neill reported. “And nothing better sums up the elitism and authoritarianism of the environmentalist lobby than its psychologisation of dissent.”
“The labelling of any criticism of the politics of global warming, first as ‘denial,’ and now as evidence of mass psychological instability, is an attempt to write off all critics and sceptics as deranged, and to lay the ground for inevitable authoritarian solutions to the problem of climate change.”
“Historically, only the most illiberal and misanthropic regimes have treated disagreement and debate as signs of mental ill-health,” he added.
And under Obama’s new rules on gun sales, psychologists can now report people they consider “mentally ill” to the FBI so they can no longer purchase a firearm.
“Current law prohibits individuals from buying a gun if, because of a mental health issue, they are either a danger to themselves or others or are unable to manage their own affairs,” the White House revealed.
