NY Times Cartoon Suggests 'Climate-Change Deniers' Should Be Stabbed to Death
newbusters.org ^ | 2/23/2014 | Jack Coleman

Posted on 02/24/2014 7:15:35 AM PST by rktman

Editorial cartoons often aren't pretty, to paraphrase Steve Martin's observation about the perils of comedy. But one found in the Opinion section of today's New York Times is downright ugly.

The cartoon, alluding to this year's brutal winter, suggests U.S. Department of Commerce "Strategies for Dealing With the 2014 Icicle Surplus." Among them are using icicles as "locally sourced hydration devices," "temporary doorsteps," and "brainteasers for dogs." Then comes a suggestion that one immediately looks at again, in disgust and disbelief -- icicles can also be used as "self-destructing sabers for dispatching climate-change deniers." (Entire cartoon shown after the jump)

As far as cartoonists at the New York Times are concerned, if you are skeptical about climate change, you should die. Preferably in a violent manner. Turns out the Gray Lady's got a mean streak. But you already knew that.

Suggestion hell. It plainly shows some cross dressing climate change nazi stabbing a "denier" in the chest. That hardly classifies as a "suggestion" for possible uses to me. Smacks of GWN's methodology for shutting up climate change deniers. If you're just a skeptic you may be okay as long as you SDSU. Where's the outrage from mares against illegal ice-cicles?

In this film people are blown up for not actively supporting the agendas of Global Warming activists.

If you don’t agree we’ll kill you seems to be a common thread among the radical left.

Every one of these people, these liberal/progressive, whatever they are types, need an old fashioned ass kicking. I’m not talking about a debate, on a show, where the facts get in the way and they lose the debate. I’m talking about an old fashioned, in the alley, behind the bar, a$$ whooping. These are the kids that were never told NO. These are the kids that got trophies for showing up.

They are all the loudmouths in the bar. The one that everyone wants to beat the hell out of, but no one wants to take that ride in the backseat of the patrol car after its done. However, at some point the rest of the bar patrons and the bar owner get sick of hearing it. The loudmouth gets his a$$ kicked and no one saw nothing.

Plus, this is a womyn stabbing a while man. If genders were reversed, the feminazi’s would be crying like the infantile spoiled brats they are.

But stabbing a white male is a-ok.

Had it been the PeoplesCube or the Onion, maybe. From the nyslimes, they probably mean it to “look” like satire but deep down inside, they’d like to silence the knaves.

Hmmmm. Don’t see any “african-Americans” in the cartoon. Is this micro-agression or just plain ole racism on behalf of the nyslimes.

I thought that at first, but then I recall all the stories about how lots of snow and ice are the result of GW.
Sadly, with each passing day it’s getting more and more difficult to distinguish satire and real life.

I have finally realized why so many of the general “non-technical” population are supporting global warming — it has little to do with some complex theory that they don’t understand.

From their perspective, it has to do with something that humanity in general can rally around — saving the planet and ultimately ourselves.

And if you dissagree than you are against something akin to world peace.

Also, most people don’t want to be bothered with the complexities of the theory. It is too complex. So they beleive in it without question.

Of course, it would only by ironic (and thus funny) if the person stabbed with the icicle were a Climate Warmonger.

Climate Change is real, and it is happening all the time, no denying that. The question is, do the activities of mankind have much to do with that change?

Sorry, the jury is still out on that, and there is no definitive answer yet. There is no solid evidence that anthropogenic Climate Change (some sort of sacred and unchallenged True Belief) even exists, and to what extent it could or would actually affect anything more than over a very small localized area. The Butterfly Effect is a logical inconsistency.

This suggestion is that the warmers are indeed the climate Nazis.

Of course there is climate change, but it is caused by the Sun as it has for billions of years.

If you analyze the entire cartoon, it may be a ‘jab’ (pun intentional, of course) at the Obozo Administration. After all, the title starts off with: “U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Strategies...”, implying that these are the ‘suggestions’ of the administration................

Never underestimate the passions of dedicated cultists, and warming fanatics are among the very worst of them. They aren’t above inquisitions, torture and public executions. They have been so overwhelmed with faux science, contrived climate models, and political pressure, they’ve achieved transcendental perceptions of the weather that we deniers don’t have. Warming fanatics will kill to maintain their spiritual experience.

The Climate Change Inquisition has a problem dealing with heretics (deniers) as the traditional burning at the stake would add CO2 to the atmosphere.

Liberals’ first instinct is to engage in name calling. Anyone who challenges them on any topic is instantly labeled with a derogatory name or pejorative (e.g., racist, denier, birther, homophobe, uncaring, greedy, etc.).

Their tactics are obvious and predictable: attack, marginalize and belittle your opponents. Repeat the attacks on a daily basis and get your allies in the media to echo them.

Well, those tactics are obvious and predictable to anyone who is not a clueless Republican politician. ;)

I thought it was more a satire against the warmists, not the deniers.

The 'denier' makes a valid point about the icicles and lack of warming, and instead of an intelligent response, he gets stabbed.

Also what about the cash for clunkers parody last panel: "Note, as part of the cash for clunkers program, you can redeem icicles for money. . . mail to US Government Icicle Stimulus . . .

Let me simplify it for you.

-Globall warming is a danger to our future.
-Human carbon emissions need to be drastically reduced to ‘save our future’.
-Ergo, to save our future the population needs to be drastically reduced.

Globall warming is a call for genocide.

Yes. Ultimately. According to the extremists, the number of humans on the planet is not sustainable.

Truth be told...

We all rely very heavily on industrialization for food, for everything. Destroy that and you have mass starvation and death. Example: Maoist China.

And to a lesser extent, and reading between the globalists global warming lines, American must give up or comfortable lives. To be able to turn up the thermostat when we are cold or take a nice drive to the country. Or just about everything that we enjoy in America. No, they won’t take that away. They’ll just make it very expensive to do so.

The average supporter of AGW doesn’t realize this.

I asked a rather liberal acquaintance what she meant by “climate-change denier” the other day. As in “do you actually know anyone who denies the climate is changing?” No answer. It’s a particularly stupid and stingless bit of rhetoric.
