Bill Moyers, scientist fantasize about locking up Americans who question climate change 26

Obit Shriver Wake

FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that he is “suspicious” of the federal government and that American should be as well. Why would he say that? There are a number of reasons, but one of them might be because there are men who think like Bill Moyers and geneticist David Suzuki running around the halls of Congress and occupying chairs in the administrative state.

The Daily Caller reported Tuesday:

Canadian geneticist David Suzuki urged Western governments to lock up politicians who question man-made climate change, telling PBS’ Bill Moyers “our politicians should be thrown in the slammer for willful blindness!”

Suzuki appeared on “Moyers and Company” earlier this month to express his abject frustration over politicians, in both Canada and the United States, who refuse to accept the “settled science” on man-made global warming.

“Our politicians should be thrown in the slammer for willful blindness!” he asserted. “If we are in a position of being able to act, and we see something going on and we refuse to acknowledge the threat or act on it, we can be taken to court for willful blindness.”

It’s a good thing that modern science can be “settled” with computer models that have shown to be wrong time and time again. It’s a good thing that modern science can be “settled” by the brilliant (i.e., corrupt) minds who brought us The University of East Anglia “Climategate” scandal. It’s a good thing that modern science is “settled,” even though there’s a gigantic ball of exploding gas that affects our planet in countless ways we still don’t fully comprehend.

Remember when FDR rounded up Japanese people and threw them in internment camps? Well, I want to do that sort of thing again, but I want the prisons to be more diverse. And I want to do it in Canada as well. Score!

Regardless, it is always refreshing when men like Mr. Suzuki come straight out and tell the world that their hearts are filled with totalitarian urges. It’s merely hilarious when a guy like Bill Moyers interviews a wannabe tyrant and essentially says, “I’d totally be down with that if the numbers were small enough to do it without drawing too much attention to ourselves.”

“The problem is, if that should happen — if politicians were to be convicted to willful blindness to the fate of the Earth and future generations — there would have to be mass arrests, and lots more funding for new prisons,” he noted. “We’re not talking about a mere handful of culprits. It’s hard to know where to start,” (Bill Moyers — aka, guy who would love to circumvent the rule of law and imprison people who disagree with him if he didn’t think it would get too messy.)

Here’s what I said after visiting the Virginia Living Museum (where I learned that the region has been under water many, many times over millions of years) Oct. 7, 2013:

There is no doubt that the climate “changes.” The question is: How big of a role does man play? Is it big enough to warrant the redistribution of wealth — to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars — from the private sector to a bureaucratic Leviathan? Answer: No. Is shaving a few degrees off computer models that even the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change now admits are flawed worth the price in individual liberty? Of course not.

To David Suzuki and Bill Moyers, that is apostasy. Globalwarmingclimatechangeclimatedisruption (one word) will not be questioned. It is “settled,” and those who are suspicious of the solution (i.g., consolidating power into the hands of an “elite” group of master minds along with massive transfers of wealth to their friends, family and political allies) must be silenced.

There are many good scientists out there, but there are also many authoritarian thugs (and authoritarian thug wannabes) who have abandoned the old camouflage fatigues for white lab coats. In countries like the United States, it is much harder to control the population by force (thank God for the Second Amendment), so the only option is to get the individual to willingly abdicate his freedom and individual liberty. Now that science has become its own religion for many people, the statists have found countless ways to take advantage of the situation.

Keep questioning. Always question. And when a thug like David Suzuki makes it known that he’s the type of guy who would have cheered on Japanese internment camps when FDR (the left’s Moses) was in office, call them out on it every time. We should never allow for the theft of individual liberty, but if it’s going to happen we should not allow ourselves to become so passive and self-absorbed that it happens in broad daylight.

  1. Typical liberal thugs who want to silence political opponents through any means necessary. You’d have thought Climategate would’ve woken a few people up, but that seems to have been conveniently buried in their quest for power and control over people. Sorry, I’m not changing my lifestyle based on Chicken Little alarmism; I believe it occurs naturally, and that humans have little if anything to do with it. I’m not worried about it, and individual liberties shouldn’t be taken away based on the ramblings of clowns like Suzuki.

    I just love this is considered “settled,” even though the computer models are wrong again and again. Hell, they can’t predict what the weather will be like tomorrow let alone 20 years from now. Where in the scientific method does it say anything about stifling dissent and jailing those who disagree with you? I don’t recall learning about that in science class.

    This is a dangerous world we’re living in, where dissent is not tolerated, even though it was considered “patriotic” when Bush was in office. Especially during the Obama years, there has been a growing intolerance for dissenting views among the left, to the point where people are ousted from their jobs because they don’t have politically correct viewpoints on social issues (Brandon Eich, Phil Robertson), blocked from getting a TV show for the same reasons (HGTV), blocking the first black female Secretary of State from speaking at a college (Condoleeza Rice), etc. And now this. The list goes on and on.

  2. I love how things that are “proven” by science is often not proven. I for one really enjoy the hypocrisy of our dating methods since they almost all contradict each other. Now if a person disagrees with something they claim is fact yet it has still not really been proven they want them in jail.
    Our freedom has been under attack and I fear the pace of the attack is increasing every day. It seems that people are only allowed to have opinions without being attacked if they agree with particular groups that are popular at the time. Our freedom is being chipped away everyday with unsubstantiated claims and PC verbiage.

    • “It seems that people are only allowed to have opinions without being attacked if they agree with particular groups that are popular at the time. Our freedom is being chipped away everyday with unsubstantiated claims and PC verbiage.”

      Exactly. That goes with my statement about the intolerance of dissenting views among the left. Whenever someone says something that goes against PC group think, the left mobilizes and tries to get them removed from the public sphere forever. Pat Sajak recently made a tongue-in-cheek comment on Twitter about global warming alarmists being unpatriotic racists, a comment that was clearly sarcastic, but leftists, proving they have no sense of humor and no tolerance of dissenting views, have already organized a movement to have him removed from “Wheel of Fortune” because of it. The liberals have cultivated a whole generation, a whole group of perpetually-outraged narcissists who are constantly going around looking for something or something that “offends” them and then throwing tantrums until they get their way. It’s pathetic.

      “Now if a person disagrees with something they claim is fact yet it has still not really been proven they want them in jail.”

      Dinesh D’Souza was conveniently jailed because he made a movie critical of Obama. Nakoula’s movie critical of Islam was falsely accused of causing Benghazi and he’s still in jail, nearly two years later. And now this Suzuki wants to jail people who are skeptical of climate change. This crap isn’t even new for the climate change alarmists, either. Al Gore, the King of the Alarmists, once compared climate change skeptics to Southern racists. I kid you not.

    I agree it is very scary. Don’t forget IRS targeting as well. It seems that a powerful group is working very hard at censorship while hiding it under the PC movement. The self proclaimed tolerant seem to be the least tolerant of all.

    • “I agree it is very scary. Don’t forget IRS targeting as well. It seems that a powerful group is working very hard at censorship while hiding it under the PC movement. The self proclaimed tolerant seem to be the least tolerant of all.”

      Indeed, I should’ve mentioned the IRS targeting. That’s some scary stuff, too. Another thing is Howard “The Scream” Dean, at a Democrat fundraiser in Colorado yesterday, telling his audience there that “Republicans are not real Americans” and they should go to “Russia.” It’s disgusting. They like to claim they’re so tolerant, but in reality they only tolerate you if you agree 100% with them. Otherwise, you’re the “enemy” and must be silenced. That attitude is sadly prevalent among people (Obama supporters are so deluded that they think the Tea Party is a bigger threat to America than Al Qaeda) and I’ve known plenty who think that way, including several relatives and former high school classmates.

  4. And speaking of FDR: every time my teachers talked about him in school they conveniently ignored the internment of Japanese-Americans during WW2. The textbooks didn’t mention it, either. All they did was present him as some kind of grandfatherly Messiah-type figure who created the New Deal and it “saved” us from the Depression. I actually learned about the Japanese-American internment while watching the History Channel one day when I was home alone on the weekend.

  5. Carl, it was a classic case of us removing the dark marks on the nation’s record of respecting civil liberties and cultural differences. We tend to like to teach our history with rose color glasses. If you have not already I would suggest spending some time on how we treated the Indians that were here before we arrived. Pay particular attention to Custer it is a rather dark past.

    • Indeed, while things like the Trail of Tears and Custer are blemishes on our history, the Indians themselves weren’t always innocent. The Aztecs practiced cannibalism, and went to war with neighboring tribes just so they’d have victims to sacrifice to their gods.

  15. Doug, I have a real serious problem concerning climate change and I’m not sure I can handle it like a rational intelligent adult rather than the man child that I am and have been trying not to be. I further think that, despite what you’ve said about me handling it on my own and never bugging you about anything ever, I do, truly, in fact, need help and I do not say so with any false modesty in my abilities.

    Now… I have recently been informed… for my transmedia class… that the group project we all are going to work on involves trying to make a submission for a transmedia project for Climate Change for the UN at the request of the French embassy

    I just got back from class, having to sit through the most condescending, fallacious, appeal to emotions ridden attempt to get people to do something about grizzly bears I’ve ever seen in my life:

    http://bear71.nfb.ca/#/bear71

    And my blood is boiling so deep right now because of this documentary, and what I know I’ll have to do, that I think it could cook frozen ground beef in a well done manner in under thirty seconds.

    God, I should have gotten a philosophy major instead. At least then I could form coherent arguments more easily and knock down the philosophical underpinnings guiding this kind of ideology more easily.

    • I’ve always loved how radical, insane environmentalists value animal life over human life. And then call you all sorts of nasty names when you challenge their idiotic beliefs, like pretty much all progressives. That shows you how messed up they really are. Back when I was on Facebook, more than a few “friends” would send me “save the wolves” and “save the whales” petitions, which got to be so irritating that I actually typed up a status in which I politely asked them to stop sending me that, because I do not care about either cause. That prompted quite a few angry responses from these “friends,” in which they said I was “anti-animal” and there was even one idiot who proclaimed that because I didn’t care, “you’d probably have been fine with the Holocaust, too, judging by your logic.” I responded by saying that, “if you think whale hunting is in anyway comparable to the Holocaust, you need to have your head thoroughly examined.” I removed at least eight people that day.

      Also, Emmanuel, I was forced to watch “An Inconvenient Truth” in my junior year of high school and the teacher docked me two letter grades or so when I wrote a paper critical of it.

      Makes me glad that I’m no longer in college.

      • Makes me glad that I’m no longer in college.

        I know you’re pretty opposed to the idea Carl, but I sometimes think that you should go back to college. I’m not sure what your long-term plans are, but you’re a smart guy. Unfortunately, these days rules and regulations have made it tough for self-educated guys to prove they have the chops for [fill in desirable job here]. I think more fields should have a test, and if you can pass it — even if you never paid a dime to attend a traditional college — then you’d be certified to work and deemed a desirable candidate.

        I know you have your book going, and that’s pretty cool. But if there’s other stuff that you’re interested in that you’re avoiding because of dumb college professors … I’d think about biting the bullet and going back.

        I apologize if this reply seems presumptuous. Like I said, you just seem like a guy with a lot of potential.

      That would be one way to put it, if one were to completely distort my point on this subject. Regardless, I’ll respond.

      You actually have the power to focus on any aspect of the class you want. You can focus on the “condescending” nature of the class or the “emotional ridden attempts” to get people worked up about climate change — or you can focus on how the class can make you a better version of yourself. Instead of asking why your professor is an idiot and then just getting upset about it, why don’t you use his idiocy to your advantage? Pull some intellectual jiu-jitsu on him, your peers, etc. Use the class to learn liberalism inside and out so that you can predict what they’re going to say and do before they do it. Figure out how to manipulate the manipulators. You already know they want to control your life, but what if you studied them and knew how to control them … without them ever realizing what was going on? It would be like a puppet laughing at the tiny puppet he was pulling the strings on without realizing that he was being controlled. I’m just brainstorming here. You get the point.

      I know that everyone gets angry (trust me, I know), but at the same time you can minimize that anger by not getting upset over stuff that is out of your control. Will you ever change your professor’s ways? Maybe, but probably not. Given that, you can still learn from him or figure out what you need to do to get an ‘A’ in his dumb class (while still staying true to yourself) and moving on.

      Hopefully that helps you out a bit.

  16. Thank you Carl. It’s good to know that others have slogged through and persevered as well.

    But the thing is… when I’m in the moment… I don’t have the kind of happy place that would allow me to get through it or even the relief that I’m not alone like I have right now after listening to what’s happened to you. Instead, I feel exactly as I described above and that can lead (and often have lead) to some unpleasant situations.

    But that’s not all there is. You see, today, I finally realized what it was about this topic in particular that gets me so worked up.

    And that is… I fear it might be true and, even if it is largely spun to give more power to people who are obviously and predictably going to use it against political opponents and the like, they can always hide behind this truth and use it to bash people in the heads with along with God’s command to take care of the earth and I don’t know who or where I can trust about this sort of thing since the other side is idealogically and politically motivated as well and could be just as liable to embellish things and I’m so confused and angry that I’m in this situation to begin with when I’m not even sure I have a basis or thinking one way or the other about it even though I hope it’s largely untrue and fear that it’s largely true.
