Posted on 04/23/2014 3:34:20 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
In The Nation magazine MSNBC host Christopher Hayes spent thousands of words and four web pages explaining how those working at preventing global warming are somehow just like the abolitionists who fought to free the slaves just prior to the American Civil War.
Calling it a "new abolitionism," Hayes opens his article rehashing the South's "peculiar institution," pegging its long life to "so much goddamn money." Then he segues into likening today's global warming alarmists to those moralists and abolitionists of old.
After 11 paragraphs of making this comparison, Hayes then weakly states, "So before anyone misunderstands my point, let me be clear and state the obvious: there is absolutely no conceivable moral comparison between the enslavement of Africans and African-Americans and the burning of carbon to power our devices."
But this one-line disclaimer is hard to take seriously when he goes on with over 4,600 words proving his blithe denial to be a sham. He fully intends to compare the abolition of slavery to the religious cause of global warming. And, perhaps, that is all they really do have in common: a religious fervor on behalf of the believers.
The abolition of slavery, after all, was God's work to folks like Theodore Parker, James Russell Lowell, Wendell Phillips, William Lloyd Garrison, and a host of other abolitionists. They believed it with the intensity of religion. Even "science" at that time often insisted that people of African descent were mentally, physically, and morally inferior. It took an act of faith to defy the scientific (and cultural) "consensus," if you will....

Freeing Slaves ,something the Democrats are still fighting to stop
Global Warming is like Exodus. Or Genesis. But more important.
It’s the opposite: Global warming is just another fake crisis that democrats created to grow government(grow socialism) and to enslave us.
If you made $100,000 per year after taxes then you could buy anything you could ever need in the free market because someone would produce it for money( look at the millions of products for sale on Google , internet , ebay , amazon,Walmart, Dollar Tree etc etc). So we dont need government for ANYTHING. A private company created a whole city DISNEY WORLD in Florida. So democrats create fake crisis like global warming,no health insurance crisis to justify the very existence of government and the continued growth of government(socialism)
government is the enemy and the problem. the news media and democrat party are also the enemy and the problem
Im proud to be a climate denier : come and get me you communist Obama and communist democrats
No..., preventing global warming is exactly like preventing the sky from falling.
Some Journalists are indeed mentally, physically, and morally inferior.
These people are CERTIFIABLE INSANE!
Good grief. When will they get OVER themselves, already?!?!
In the 70s 80s and 90s, it was global cooling. It was as much a certainty back then as global warming is now.
Somewhere along the line, they decided they could unravel Western civilization if they change it to warming. And so, while Eastern nations do whatever the sam hell they want, we in the West set up hurdle after hurdle to hinder progress and Western civilization.
Quite a coup for those who have wanted to destroy and or subjugate the Western World even before Hitler wanted to.
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes: “Spay and Neuter your pets. Otherwise, it’s just like the Holocaust for cats and dogs.”
making no sense , what MSNBC are very good at
More drivel from another MSNBC “genius”.
marxism/socialism is like a religion to democrats , liberals or whatever they call themselves progressives, democrats,liberals , leftists. they are all one and the same :marxists/socialists/communists.all these terms are all the same people. so I just call them democrats because they ARE ALL of them democrats
This is why reporters show only pro government stories as news.it's not to make money but to shape public perception to allow democrat politicians to pass more laws
also they create fake crisis like global warming to justify the growth of government . they in the government can be our saviors from the fake hobgoblins they menace us with
The face of a useful idiot (since none of us watch him).
These people are demonically possessed.
That’s the only explanation that makes sense to me of their psychotic obsession with a mission that is not only hopelessly quixotic, but for which they are prepared to imprison and kill any and all opposition to it, however mild.
The reaction from these zombies is akin to the reaction you get when you try to tell a person having a psychotic episode that the voices and visions are not real.
What A brain dead donor!
Driving a hybrid for one year is the equivalent of freeing twenty slave shoulder-blades.
If you bring a canvas sack to the store one time it’s like liberating five slave eye-brows, and if you do so ten times, well that’s doing the same for 3 slave torsos.
If you burn down the average residential American home it’s the equivalent of setting three-fourths of a slave free —permanently.
Just to keep up with the breathless overexaggerated tenor of the original.
Carbon credit scams enslave the masses under Socialist redistribution schemes.
Stalinsts lie. ALWAYS
#13. The photo of Hayes reminds me of the rear end of a horse we once had. Only what came out of it made more sense than what comes out of Hayes’ mouth.
Somewhere in-between, there is a correlation about a horse’s ass and Chris Hayes mouthings.
They’re outta their f’ing minds...
Chris Hayes is a lot like a rash.
The television remote remote is like some cream you would apply, say, to your thighs, to get rid of it.
Not only does the creme not work very well and has to be applied over many instances....
But along comes Chris Hayes, obviously dressed in something different than the official line of pajamas, in a media source nobody is looking for him in.
And all over again, whatever progress one may have made with the creme and the rash and so forth....there he is again.
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes: Preventing Global Warming Is Like Freeing Slaves
Did you ever wonder if the parents hear something like this and look at each other and ask “How did such an idiot come from us?”
I'm convinced MSNBC is a shadow gov’t agency to spill evil marxist propaganda.
I imagine if I was a black descended from american slaves I would be highly insulted someone wrote such dribble...
What period in history does it make you think of when people who don’t believe a certain way are threatened to be locked up? Something these loons have already actually proposed, out loud, on the air waves. We are the heretics, and these maniacs are the modern equivalent of Torquemada.
“These people are CERTIFIABLE INSANE”
I agree. Is it possible that they could EVER come up with an idea that actually works, and benefits someone other than themselves?
Wait a minute - don’t I recall these idiots - these very same idiots on MSNBC, including Martin Bashir - shrieking like harpies at Sarah Palin for likening debt slavery to the real thing?
If we just give liberals total control over our lives, they could stop the slavery. Or something.
Brain Dead Moron!
Slavery was REAL.
Global Warming is a HOAX.
The only thing to “Prevent” is an additional liberal HOAX!
He is right if the slaves would have been invisible make believe.
“..just like the abolitionists who fought to free the slaves just prior to the American Civil War.”
Yeah, just like that terrorist NUT John Brown trying to instigate a murdering band of wackos to kill and maim any White person with spears and knives.
Obama didn’t think it was worth a side trip to Gettysburg to pay homage to the Union men who died there freeing the slaves on the 150th anniversary of the Union Valor and Bravery; not to mention the Confederates fighting to protect their land. Ever hear of a Progressive Black/White recognize the suffering the Union White military and/or their families endured freeing the Black slaves who the Northern Abolitionist’s government was hell-bent on freeing ?
The ONLY idea that could ever work is to get government out of the way of the free market, out of our lives, and out of the lives of businesses :and get government out of government owning land or controlling anything.
Shouldn’t he do his part rather than being a poser and eliminate the production of CO2?
Pray America wakes up
In the 70s 80s and 90s, it was global cooling.
I remember that. There was a lot of Malthusian doomsday crap going around in the ‘70s. That was also back when homosexuality was a ‘choice’, like choosing between “vanilla and chocolate ice cream”. Of course, that was before the SCOTUS had invented ‘protected classes’.
Such threadbare lies.
Hayes is a running mess of non sequiturs.
They’re desperate .
Yep, I agree. I hear ya...
Were he and Madcow separated at birth?
When all you have left is the race card, that’s what you play.
Wait, slavery was all a hoax designed to let useless, indolent, arrogant tyrants hijack the liberty and treasure of people a thousand times their superior?? Well, Dishonest Abe WAS involved, so maybe......
