Posted on 04/22/2014 10:14:26 AM PDT by Olympiad Fisherman
Modern greens who inappropriately and metaphorically often use the term denier to compare global warming skeptics to Holocaust deniers are shockingly betrayed by their very own environmental history. Modern environmentalism was largely born in the racist forests of Germany in the 1800's that was at first anti-Semitic, but later became mixed up with Social Darwinian biological science in which the very word 'ecology' was coined in 1866. Today, the green movement is no longer racist, but has evolved into anti-humanism in general ...

There should be a corollary for Godwin’s Law with respect to “racist” and “racism.”
I’m thinking that the Peter Principle is more apt for the Green Nazis.
The ‘progressive’ Left is obsessed with an inverse form of racism so that it essentially defines everything by it. In so doing, the whole push on racism as defined by the Left also routinely breaks Godwin’s Law because the whole point is to compare the right with Nazis.
Peter Principle? Robbing Peter to pay Paul?
Godwin’s law is a vacuous platitude.
It arises from people tired of dealing with people who throw spurious allegations of a connection to the policies of the Third Reich towards everything with which they disagree.
The problem with it is, that there are legitimate political concerns which do parallel the nazis. They do need to he addressed. It is a road that will be traveled again, and we need to be alert and head that off.
Godwin’s Law is a cure which is orders of magnitude worse than the disease.
I’ve started using the term “greentards”...
The Peter Principle is being promoted to your level of incompetence.
President Chirac exclaimed the Earth was burning and he was the fireman... right... more like water riot fascist cop.
This urgency is police state brutality, not paramedic rescue.
Now you are not a scientist unless you don the fascist uniform and the lackof cosciousness going with it. This is total debauchery of science... and the ddebauchery of science deniers are them
Very well said.
Where was Godwin’s Law when the Left (including Obama’s propaganda artist, Shepherd Fairey) were calling President Bush “Bushitler” and a fascist and a war criminal and...?
Godwin’s Law only applies to conservatives.
The hysteria over the “Green Menace” (man causing global warming and extreme environmental disasters) is far more overstated and hysteric than the so called “Red Menace” (the threat of global imperialist Communism and Communist espionage working as a fifth column within the media, State Department, US military, academia, and labor unions).
I would sharply disagree with. Communism is dead. Marxism predicted an industrial paradise free from work and class based on the humanistic progress of man. No one takes this seriously today. The Left has replaced Marxism with the irrationality of Post Modernism, and Post-Modernism has its primary roots in Fascism rather than Humanism or the Enlightenment. In truth, Post Modernism means Post Marxism, and in Post Modernism, Nature replaces man. Even Gorbachev is in charge of the Green Cross International these days. The Commies have become greens, and thereby have switched over to Fascism. Environmentalism is running America into the ground every time you buy gas, groceries, rent, etc. - even buy a home - where up to 50% of housing costs these days are tied up in environmental regulations.
Well, that’s not what the Peter Principle is about.
The Peter Principle is that people advance to their level of incompetence. These ECO alarmists get into positions to regulate use of the environment, yet they don’t know jack about the real environment.
The critics of HCUAA and investigations into international subversive activity in America said that it was scare mongering.
What is BULLCRAP from leftists that the oceans will rise 20 feet, 5 hurricanes will be ongoing in both hemispheres, etc...
I'm calling out the Green Scare as a conspiracy to defraud Western nations of their capital and redistribute the wealth to third world dictatorships (who "haven't used their share of the world's resources") while some moneychangers (like Al Gore) stand to skim $$$ off every carbon credit transfer. PS that image was from Al Gore's book. They are whipping up falsified hysteria. Which is what they accused Sen. McCarthy of (and the KGB files backed up the claims).
Communism is seen as a means on control, not “equality”. Animal Farm posits that some animals are equal than others. The billionaire politburo want it to remain that way. Not every billionaire is a Marxist but among the loudest voices calling for Socialism are numerous billionaires (who won’t be giving up their holdings).
Thanks for the clarification. I was not sure how to respond with the link to Wikipedia!
The difference between Communism and Fascism is that Communism emphasized humanism and class, whereas Fascism emphasized nature, racism/and or culture. The Left has become completely enmeshed in nature, racism and culture. They left the Marxist industrial paradigm long ago.
“Peter Principle? Robbing Peter to pay Paul?”
For sure that’s the Obumster thought.
HOWEVER, he’s getting a -— Second Nobel Prize —for the
—Most Successful Implementation of the Peter Principle....in All of History.....
