MSNBC's Chris Hayes: Preventing Global Warming Is Like Freeing Slaves
Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | April 23, 2014 | Warner Todd Huston

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....

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 don’t 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

I’m proud to be a climate denier : come and get me you communist Obama and communist democrats

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.

It's not just about money but it also about growing socialism(government power and control over us)

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

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.

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.

Hmmm....after this last winter (which doesn't feel like it's over yet...feels like early March out there, rather than late April)...seems to me that Preventing Global Warming is like loading a slave ship for a six-month voyage.

Just to keep up with the breathless overexaggerated tenor of the original.

#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.

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.

We broke all kinds of records this past winter, and this idiot still is babbling the GW nonsense. When was the last time all of the Great Lakes were frozen solid before January/February 2014?

I'm convinced MSNBC is a shadow gov’t agency to spill evil marxist propaganda.

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.

“..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.

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.

The harder this fellow Chris Hayes tries to promote global warming, the more tedious he becomes.
I am struck by the thought that at some point Chris Hayes might resort to an analogy on the order of "preventing global warming is like Homer Simspon in the Land of Chocolate."
