NYTs Friedman Compares Global Warming Deniers to Trotsky Marxists Blames Global Warming for
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 4/6/14 | John Hoft

Posted on 04/07/2014 6:56:29 AM PDT by Nachum

Wow. This was warped and offensive. New York Times columnist and author Thomas Friedman sited a debunked study to compare global warming deniers to Trotsky Marxists – then blames the Syrian revolution on global warming, not on Bashir Assad’s brutality.

Let me put this in personal terms. Your son or daughter has a disease. And you go to 100 doctors. 97 out of a hundred say, “This is a cause and this is a cure,” and three percent say, “This is a cause and this is a cure.” It’s like 97% of experts say this. 3% say that. And, conservatives say, “I’m going to go with the 3%.” That’s not conservative. That’s Trotskyite-radical… That’s what we saw in Syria. We saw a four-year drought in Syria’s mondern history that proceeded the revolution there. That produced a million refugees that basically led a predicate for that revolution.

Freidman is an IDIOT when it comes to using the 97% fake statistic.

"After taking a closer look at the paper, investigative journalists report the authors’ claims of a 97-pecent consensus relied on the authors misclassifying the papers of some of the world’s most prominent global warming skeptics. At the same time, the authors deliberately presented a meaningless survey question so they could twist the responses to fit their own preconceived global warming alarmism."

97% = 75 out of 77 (highly selected) "scientists".

And the ONLY treatment is bigger and bigger government, more and more regulations and higher and higher taxes - AND - it will probably not even help.

America has gone from a nation of tolerance to a nation of dogmas where if you do not believe as I do, you can be killed or worse, shunned and exiled.

The NYT supports Socialism, Fascism, and all out Communism. They hate America
and support those who despise their country. Yet then think they're smart enough
to blame opposition of exactly what they are, and get away with it.

Reminds me of the Democrats calling Constitutional supporters, extremists,
two minutes after they speak the oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.
Using freedom to take away Freedom, predicted by Communists, practiced by Democrats.


And the NYT/Newspapers are supposed to be protectors of the 1st Amendment.
The New Pravda York Times.

The Global Warming hysteric cultists ARE the Marxists who seek to “redistribute” the wealth of 1st world nations to the 3rd world dictatorships.

Yeah, well I can compare New York Times columnists to liars in a prison... psychopaths... So take that Friedman. I can be just as stupid as you are... with equally stupid comparisons.

Wait, is butter good for you or bad for you?

High carb (food pyramid) diet good for you or bad for you?

Smoking good for you or bad for you? (or does it depend on whether it is pot (good) or tobacco (bad)?)

Medical consensus changes more often than the weather does.

On issue after issue; climate change, gay marriage, obamacare, etc. the left is moving to shut down debate and proceed unimpeded.

They will sue, terrorize, boycott, insult, lie, and try to intimidate anyone that disagrees w/ them.

This will not stop. The enemy we we face is prepared to go to any lengths to achieve their objective.

Our only hope is that the good people still in the democratic party, and there are millions, wake up to the insidious nature of the party they've been blindly supporting.

Well that is how Tom (Da Bomb) fights global warming...-by living in a really really big estate and flying around the world, first class, in big planes.
