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).

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.

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...

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.

Yet another example proving that there is not 2 cents worth of difference between a leftist and a totalitarian. Given the opportunity, RFK Jr would have anyone who disagrees with him executed for treason or sent to the gulag.

"ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR.: First of all, the, everything we need to do, the science on global warming is settled, 2500 scientists and the IPPC report, the top meteorologists and climate scientists from around the world have announced the global consensus that global warming exists, that we are causing it, and that its impacts are going to be catastrophic...'

The above is the result of not having a real job all your life so you have to cling onto some sort of major "event" in which to develop an identity.

This guy is a Middle-Earther.

“Liberals are only “liberal” until they get power.”

That is why I have always disagreed with Michael Savage who claims that “Liberalism is a mental disease”. Liberalism is nothing more than communism light, and communism is definitely not a mental disease but premeditated evil. And evil is not a mental disease - it is a choice.

Of course. He’s an hysterical, incoherent, clueless whiny brat druggie. What a concept! Anyone who disagrees with you is ipso facto lying. Should be denied access to the public forum. Should be silenced. That people like this, and there are others of his same mindset, are in positions of power is scary.

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 yet, when we challenge their eco-othodoxy, they get mad. They lie, we challenge. What's the problem?

The moron trotted out the liberal talking points:

1. Consensus

2. Settled Science

3. 2500 scientists say so

4. It’s man made

The new Nazis are just like the old Nazis, and make no mistake about it; the globalist warmers are as diabolical as Hitler. Find out which companies and organizations donate to RFK, and boycott them. We need to silence the globalist propagandists.

Heumeneutical nonsense. The first obligation is that the speaker use something approximating meaningful language.

Scientific consensus has been wrong time and time again. Until Einstein came along, the scientific consensus was that Newton had the last word on how the universe works. Part of the scientific method involves questioning everything and anything. For these global warming fanatics to try to silence any questioning is just creepy and totalitarian.
