While the establishment has invoked the supposed threat of vitriolic “right-wing rhetoric” as a tool with which to bludgeon freedom of speech in response to the Tucson shootings, it has conspired to sweep under the carpet far more extreme and threatening language and images used by leftists in the context of the climate change debate, rhetoric that has led directly to crimes and murders.
While Sarah Palin is castigated for using an image of crosshairs targeting political districts, leftists produce violent and bloody films that depict children being liquidated in an orgy of blood and guts for not toeing the line on the political dogma of man-made global warming.
When the 10:10 campaign put out a video that showed kids in a classroom being murdered by their teacher for refusing to lower their CO2 emissions, it sparked outrage amongst conservative bloggers, yet hardly a ripple was registered on the pages of the Washington Post, the New York Times, or any of the leftist blogs now erroneously trying to blame vitriolic “right-wing” rhetoric for Jared Lee Loughner’s massacre.
Similarly, there was no condemnation when a lobbying group used an image of a dead girl being hanged to push their propaganda about melting icebergs – and in fact the Discovery Channel gave the group an award for the commercial.
Kiddie eco-snuff rhetoric was also employed by ABC Australia in an online kids game in which children were told when to kill themselves based on their carbon consumption.
ABC’s Planet Slayer website featured a cartoon series, complete with a tool called “Prof Schpinkee’s Greenhouse Calculator” to help kids work out their carbon footprint.
The calculator also estimates at what age a person should die so they don’t use more than their fair share of the Earth’s resources. If users were found to have used too much CO2, they were portrayed as an exploding pig, leaving behind a pool of blood and gore.
Man-made climate change skeptics have also been threatened with physical violence by global warming alarmists on numerous occasions.
– Last year, an article carried by the official Greenpeace website written by a Greenpeace member urges climate activists to resort to criminal activity in an effort to reinvigorate momentum for their stalling global warming agenda, while ominously threatening climate skeptics, “we know where you live”.
– In June 2009, a global warming activist posted an article on the Talking Points Memo website entitled “At What Point Do We Jail Or Execute Global Warming Deniers?”
– Shortly after this article was retracted, a comment traced back to another prominent global warming activist which appeared on the Climate Progress blog threatened Skeptics that “an entire generation that will soon be ready to strangle you and your kind while you sleep in your beds.” Website owner Joe Romm defended the comment as “clearly not a threat but a prediction”.
– During the Whole Life Expo 2010, a global warming alarmist working as security at the event tried to intimidate a skeptic by telling him, “Do you think it would be fucking funny if I punched you in the face?”
– A July 2007 Senate report detailed how skeptical scientists have faced threats and intimidation, including physical threats, intellectual purges, and threats to livelihoods and careers.
Despite the overwhelming number of examples of leftists using vitriolic rhetoric, bloody images and violent intimidation to push their political message on global warming, and despite the fact that extremists like Discovery Channel building gunman James Jay Lee, as well as child killers Francisco Lotero and Miriam Coletti, cited that rhetoric as a direct motivation for their crimes, there was no call to “tone down the rhetoric” from the establishment in the aftermath.
Sheriff Clarence Dupnik has constantly invoked the role of “right-wing rhetoric” in the tragic Tucson murders this past weekend as a smokescreen to distract from his own office’s failure to react to death threats made by shooter Jared Lee Loughner before the massacre. We now know that Dupnik was aware of Loughner’s bizarre and intimidating behavior before the shootings, as well as numerous death threats he had made.
While there isn’t a shred of evidence that Jared Lee Loughner’s rampage was prompted by anything other than his deranged mental illness, when gunman James Jay Lee took hostages he was acting on violent leftist rhetoric about the need to kill humans to save planet earth. As soon as the establishment media and the leftist blogs discovered that Lee did not fit into the mould of a right-wing tea partier, and in fact was one of their own, they dropped the story like a hot potato. There was no debate about “toning down the rhetoric,” and the 10:10 video of kids being murdered was released just over a month later.
Isn’t it interesting that the establishment only demands we “tone down the rhetoric” when that rhetoric manifests itself as criticism of the state? Meanwhile, leftists are free to continue with their far more threatening and violent rhetoric with barely a murmur of discontent amongst their allies in the corporate press.
