Quick show of hands: whos surprised to learn the global warming fanatics think communism is super-awesome?
Oh, I know what youre thinking, People Who Have Your Hands Down. Youve seen what communist countries look like. Theyre absolute environmental disasters, horrifying wastelands of garbage and toxic pollution. Youre wondering how anyone could possibly review the history of communism and come to the conclusion that its a political philosophy that leads to wise stewardship of the planet.
You need to switch off your critical thinking skills, People Who Have Your Hands Down, and master the crucial global warming skill of ignoring evidence that contradicts your ideology. Thats what this scam has been all about since the beginning. Ignore 70 percent of the data, declare what remains science, and treat anyone who disagrees as the moral equivalent of a Holocaust denier. If you dont actually look at communist China, whose capital is currently enveloped in a choking cloud of pollution thats literally driving people off the streets, you can come to the ideologically motivated conclusion that theyre the best little global warming fighters on the whole planet.
Thats what the United Nations climate poobah just did, as related by Bloomberg News:
China, the top emitter of greenhouse gases, is also the country thats doing it right when it comes to addressing global warming, the United Nations chief climate official said.
The nation has some of the toughest energy-efficiency standards for buildings and transportation and its support for photovoltaic technology helped reduce solar-panel costs by 80 percent since 2008, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, said yesterday in an interview at Bloomberg News headquarters in New York.
The country is facing growing public pressure from citizens to reduce air pollution, due in large part to burning coal. Its efforts to promote energy efficiency and renewable power stem from the realization that doing so will pay off in the long term, Figueres said.
They actually want to breathe air that they dont have to look at, she said. Theyre not doing this because they want to save the planet. Theyre doing it because its in their national interest.
China is also able to implement policies because its political system avoids some of the legislative hurdles seen in countries including the U.S., Figueres said.
Heres a photo of conditions on the streets of Beijing, courtesy of a Monday article in the UK Guardian:
CNN has a whole photo gallery of conditions as of today. Its not looking any better. But if you squint through the clouds of poison gas, you can see those glittering solar panels, so Captain Planet gives China a big thumbs-up!
The key sentence in the dopey pronouncement of that U.N. official is the part where she praises their political system for avoiding some of the legislative hurdles seen in countries including the U.S. Thats what matters to the Church of Global Warming: raw power. The hard Left is dizzy in love with authoritarianism, which they of course plan to implement with benevolent wisdom and scientific precision. Global warming theology is the perfect excuse for seizing power. It cant be disproved, its considered morally wrong to resist its demands, and it has a delightful aura of intellectual snobbery about it.
Every authoritarian dreams of the day people submit to his will because they no longer believe they can be trusted to manage their own lives. The climate change fanatics have made great strides in that direction. Even now, with oceans of data surging against their beliefs and their little propaganda stunts getting stuck in literal frozen oceans its hard to imagine what it would take to get their hands out of our wallets, and off our throats. Were standing at 16 years without any global warming now; every single climate model from the past three decades lies in ruins. When we hit 20 years, do you imagine well have yet freed ourselves from hugely expensive regulations written in the name of fighting a non-existent threat?
The love affair between global warming activists and totalitarian systems is nothing new. Its not difficult to find a plethora of books arguing that global warming demonstrates the failure of democracy and capitalism. In 2010, environmentalist James Lovelock made headlines by saying, Even the best democracies argue that when a major war approaches, democracy must be put on hold for the time being. I have a feeling that climate change may be an issue as severe as a war. It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while.
Thats music to authoritarian ears. Collectivists love the manufacture of a crisis atmosphere, to stampede people into relinquishing power over their lives. If they can move the authority to implement climate-change policy to the United Nations, it will become permanently beyond the reach of voters in any individual nation. You dont remember casting any votes to elect Christiana Figueres as Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, do you?
With global warming theology, the severity of the phony warnings is more important than actual real-world conditions. Sure, the climate models they used to soak a trillion dollars out of productive economies were all wrong but check out the latest predictions that guarantee New York will vanish under a wave of melted ice and waterlogged polar bears, turning Wisconsin into Atlantic beachfront property, if we dont impose another trillion dollars of regulations immediately! How can you sit there and quibble about data, the scientific method, or worst of all democracy when the stakes are so high?
When will environmentalists learn that clean technology is a luxury only prosperous and free capitalist societies can afford? The so-called developing world has little interest in halting its development to address even the most reasonable ecological concerns, never mind the apocalyptic fantasies of the climate change cult. China might be willing to make the kind of symbolic gestures that turn the heads of executive secretaries of U.N. frameworks of this or that, but theyre not going to seriously scale back their industrial plans. Once total power is secured, collectivists have no further need of annoying environmentalists and their demands.
Greens have been kicked to the curb by collectivism often enough to learn that lesson but they never do, because totalitarian political control is so attractive to them. Theyre in love with the romantic notion of the Smart People running the world, crushing all dissent from greedy corporate types and knuckle-dragging rubes. Many of them matriculated at universities where its an article of religious faith, on par with the sacred tenets of global warming, that the only problem with communism is that the Right People havent been given a chance to implement it properly yet. To this way of thinking, the problem with the dungeon states of the Twentieth Century wasnt authoritarian rule, but rather a poor grade of authoritarian rulers.
You know who else would probably do a bang-up job of forcing their captive populations to obey sacred edicts from the Church of Global Warming? Fascists. When a fascist government tells industry to jump, they ask how high, then jump a little higher to demonstrate their loyalty to the Party. And they love the kind of slogans, chants, and street theater environmentalists go in for. They sure dont let squalid democracy get in the way of their agendas. So why doesnt the U.N. put in a good word for the fascists, too? Ill tell you why: because the Left never allowed communism to get buried in the same dung heap of history that fascism was consigned to. They kept communism respectable. They spent decades insisting communist theories still looked great on paper, while all those gulags, enforced famines, and bloody wars of conquest were aberrations, sacrilege committed against the ideals of the system by misguided dictators.
After decades of bristling with umbrage when anyone accused them of communist sympathies, Western leftists are increasingly frank in their admiration for communist China, to the point where theyll say the most patently absurd things to praise it. And global warming theology is far too politically useful for them to give up on, no matter how many of its graphs fall flat, or how many eco-tourist ships get trapped in ice that wasnt supposed to be there. There is a deal in place between ambitious collectivists and radical environmentalists, and it remains mutually profitable.
Our DemonRAT governor Inslee in Washington State is talking Cap and Trade. He wants a 12 cent increase in the gas tax. This is all for the reduction of (the Satin) carbon emissions. The Communists have their own devil too.
Some of us knew that was what it was all about from day 1: global communist governance. Nice to hear one of them actually admit it, though.
The environment is suffering damage that could be irreversible global warming, the greenhouse effect, the melting of the polar ice caps, the rising sea level, hurricanes with terrible social occurrences that will shake life on this planet.
I believe this idea has a strong connection with reality. I dont think we have much time. Fidel Castro said in one of his speeches I read not so long ago, tomorrow could be too late, lets do now what we need to do.
I believe it is time that we take up with courage and clarity a political, social, collective and ideological offensive across the world a real offensive that permits us to move progressively, over the next years, the next decades, leaving behind the perverse, destructive, destroyer, capitalist model and go forward in constructing the socialist model to avoid barbarism and beyond that the annihilation of life on this planet.

In the “mind” of a leftist the firmly believe that their ideas CAN’T be wrong. If they are not working it is just because they are not doing them enough. Stimulus is an example of this, no matter how many times it fails they keep trying more of it.
"Goal is complete revolution"...
VAN JONES (Obama's former 'Green Jobs Czar')
"Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Obama, speaks [lovingly] about Green Job Czar, Van Jones, at the Netroots Convention on August 12, 2009. Then Van Jones speaks about [a COMMUNIST] transforming [of] the whole society."
VAN JONES SHOCK ADMISSION [in his own words]: "Goal is Complete Revolution"
Here is the transcript of the above YouTube video:
Right after Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat if the civil rights leaders had jumped out and said OK now we want reparations for Slavery, we want redistribution of all the wealth, and we want to legalize mixed marriages. If wed come out with a maximum program the very next day, theyd been laughed at. Instead they came out with a very minimum. We just want to integrate these busses
But, inside that minimum demand was a very radical kernel that eventually meant that from 1964 to 1968 complete revolution was on the table for this country.
And, I think that this green movement has to pursue those same steps and stages.
Right now we say we want to move from suicidal gray capitalism to something eco-capitalism where at least were not fast-tracking the destruction of the whole planet. Will that be enough? No, it wont be enough. We want to go beyond the systems of exploitation and oppression all together. But, thats a process and I think thats whats great about the movement that is beginning to emerge is that the CRISIS is so severe in terms of joblessness, violence and now ecological threats that people are willing to be both pragmatic and visionary.
So the green economy will start off as a small subset and we are going to push it and push it and push it until it becomes the engine for transforming the whole society.
SOURCE for this transcript (it matches the video):
Here's the original source for the Van Jones quote about the time he spent in jail following the Rodney King/LA riots (Jones was arrested in "peaceful" protests in San Fran). It was in a 2005 interview he did with East Bay Express. They of course (what else?) claim he "renounced his rowdy Black Nationalist ways" since then (yet he's calling for "complete revolution" in Aug 2009! ...see above):
But in jail, he said, "I met all these young radical people of color -- I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.'" Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. "I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary." In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist."
"Jones was the leader and founder of a radical group, the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM. That group, together with Jones' Elle Baker Center for Human Rights, led a vigil Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif.
STORM's official manifesto, titled, "Reclaiming Revolution," surfaced on the Internet."--via TheObamaFile
Been hearing that song for so long I practically know it by heart.
Thoroughly enjoyed the article; only problem with it is this:
You know who else would probably do a bang-up job of forcing their captive populations to obey sacred edicts from the Church of Global Warming? Fascists
No. Fascists are not someone "else" they are the same people. You literally could not slide a sheet of paper between their stated objectives.
Scratch a green, and you’ll find a red.
It’s all a scam to milk us peasants for more money to fund another failed governmental pyramid scheme.
They’ve become so lofty in their “ideas”, they think they are “gods” now, and can even control “nature”.
Starve those “beasts” by becoming as independent and non-existing as possible before its many tentacles suck the life out of all of us. If you don’t play with them, you won’t pay for them.
Sometimes I wonder if we could just take a big stick and poke it in its eye, and say, back off beastie, I had all I can stands, and I can’t stands no more ... smiles.
I have called them communists on FR since day one... I knew that I was correct because I have met some of these demons... they are all evil... they create the lie and live a lie and promote and bring others to believe a lie to be truth. satan is at the bottom of that pit... I am also correct about that!
So you are to be forced out of your SUV, but the Chinese can't even be bothered to put out fires.
I’ve used the term “Watermelons” for thirty years, environmentalists=communists is not new.
Neo-communists equals neo-fascists!
The whole global warming scam is mainly to bring about Socialism leading to Communism. The promoters of the hoax are either Government Supremacist Socialists, Carbon Credit Profiteers, or ignorant dupes.
“The goal of socialism is communism.” - Vladimir Lenin
We have one or two. They have thousands.
