CNN Anchor Bill Weir to Fox Nation: ‘You Willfully Ignorant [expletive]sticks’ (UPDATED)
Mediaite ^ | July 31, 2014 | Eddie Scarry

Posted on 07/31/2014 6:52:36 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

It’s safe to say CNN anchor Bill Weir is not a fan of climate change deniers.

On Thursday, the Twitter account for Fox Nation, a blog run by Fox News, tweeted a link to a post headlined, “Climate Doesn’t Cooperate With Al Gore’s Group’s Visit to Denver EPA Hearings.”

The story, aggregated from the Washington Times, relates to a Denver visit by former Vice President Al Gore‘s “Climate Reality Project” for EPA hearings on power plant emissions.

The group showed up to hand out ice cream even though it was 58 degrees.

Weir retweeted the link, with his own comment: “Weather is not climate, you willfully ignorant [expletive]sticks.”

We’ve requested comment from CNN.

“Weather is not climate, you willfully ignorant [expletive]sticks.”

But if it was 95 degrees that day, it would be absolute proof of anthropogenic global warming.

I remember this guy - he used to host a post game football tv show in L.A. after Monday Night Football. I guess that makes him a climate expert - LOL

liberals are extremely vicious people. if you’ve ever had a gay person turn on you because you wouldn’t support them or affirm their ove for anal sex, you see what a thin veneer they have and what is really living underneath.

1. Global warming makes it more or less likely to have unseasonably cool temperatures, Bill? Come on, this is an easy one.

2. I remember you doing sports on KABC here in SoCal. And your degree at Pepperdine was in journalism and creative writing. Who told you you knew what you were talking about when it came to science?

Proving once again that Twitter is how twits communicate. Aside from that though, it’s quite depressing how low our public discourse has sunk, and sadly I’m not proud of some of the things I’ve posted around the web.

Why does a network that has an audience that can fit into a dinghy need an anchor?

"Weather is not climate you willfully ignorant [expletive]sticks. M"

Right, and that's why nearly EVERY news source, on a day that is warmer than average, harps incessantly about how that is due to Global Warming.....

Who are the ignorant sticks now?

Weather is not climate,

And the current climate is not a little bit of weather either.

It is the long term trend such as

i have never seen this nation so divided—not even in the dark days of the Vietnam war. It wouldn’t take much to spark a Civil War that would end the USA as we know it. Everthing is so viseral—so hateful—on both sides. Civil discourse no longer exists—its all personal destruction. Such things can lead to civil unreast and even revolution—not like 1776—more like 1790 France—classes of people decapitated—unrelenting class war and battle ending up with a Napoleon. They will write songs about how America once was-—

Yes. Cold and blizzards in the 1970s= irrefutable evidence of a new ice age.

Warmer weather in the 1990s UNTIL 1998= irrefutable global warming.

Stable and cooling since 1998 = well, WHAT again, Bill?

From where I sit, it pretty much seems like natural cycles. i.e. "weather".

Take THAT, fu$#stick!

Is hatred of evil hateful?

This is a custody for pennies dispute. The evil party perfectly knows he hates the kid/America but just wants the benefits. The question of who hates is that they hate America. Their, “you hate me/us” meme is all the neglectful self centered narcissism of theirs. This hatred by these gay liberals is disgusting.

Yo, Billy.
Project much?
It's known as "The Gore Effect".
You should look it up.
Here's a clue, you arrogant ignoramus, it is a weather pattern which has hilariously occurred with such unfailing regularity that it is virtually a climatic phenomenon of its own.

Well, I hate evil, and that hatred seems to want to extend to those who do evil. Hating the sin but loving the sinner is put to a difficult test when the sinner is an “activist” seeking to compel the enthusiastic endorsement of evil.
