RFK Jr. Says AGW Skeptics Should Be Silenced
http://newsbusters.org/node/14033 ^

Posted on 07/12/2007 12:27:42 PM PDT by chessplayer

CAVUTO: "All right, well, Robert, what do you think of that? Is it wise, on your part, if someone disagrees with you, Robert, to go after their advertisers, to essentially shut John up?"

KENNEDY: "Absolutely, I think, I mean, you know, the air waves are owned by the public. The airwaves are licensed to the broadcasters, but the broadcasters are obligated to use those airwaves primarily to promote the public interest and to advance our democracy. If you are lying to people about science, about the impact of things like global warming, it's something that you should be challenged on. And the advertisers, of course, should be questioned about that."

Well, newspapers and magazines have advertisers, also. So Kennedy is advocating that no one who is skeptical of AGW be allowed to voice their opinions on tv, radio, or in the print media. All in the name of advancing democracy, of course.

The heroin addict preaching morality and democracy. Priceless. When will the media stop giving a free pass to the Kennedys? They are not American royalty - they are degenerate scum, leeching off the public for generations now. Enough!

Does this surprise anyone? Liberals are only “liberal” until they get power. They only plead for “tolerance” and “openness” when they are in the minority. When they are finally in a position to have their way, they reveal themselves to be the tyrants that they are.

They must shut the other side up, because in the marketplace of ideas, they have an inferior product.

Should those who question why Uncle Ted let Mary Jo suffocate in his back seat be rounded up and summarily executed? (For the public good, of course).

The brains in the Kennedy family were left in Ireland many generations ago.

What is it with the Kennedy’s, they all seem to have the same take on the world?
Probably a lot of inbreeding there is my take.

How could the common folk possibly know more than a Kennedy?

It will soon be a hate crime to dispute anything a Kennedy says.

If you are lying to people about science, about the impact of things like global warming, it's something that you should be challenged on.

That's exactly why we are challenging YOU!........

And, sadly, in Dallas as well, but in that case they shot the wrong Kennedy. JFK was a decent man, and probably the last decent Democrat...

This “genius” should be challenged on having flunked the NY Bar exam.

I’m loving this guy going off on big corporations when his brother is shilling for Hugo Chavez and Citgo.

What does RFK, Jr. do for a living besides whine?

My God, sounds like he has a belt tied around his throat when he speaks.

Cavuto made a meal of him.

Let's apply the same principle to: a) abortion-is-murder deniers, b) clash-of-western-and-islamic-civilization deniers, c) World-Trade-Center-was-an-act-of-terrorism-perpetrated-by-Islamofascists deniers, d) capitalism deniers, e) illegal-immigration-is-unfair-and-unjust deniers. And so on and so forth.

Basic References on AGW:

Lawrence Solomon's "The Deniers" (a series of articles on the view of scientists who have been labelled "Global Warming Deniers"):
