Posted on 06/23/2013 10:03:51 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
As President Obama readies his program to curb greenhouse gases, climate change action advocates are rolling out a new strategy for controlling verbal emissions by climate change deniers turning allies of Big Oil and Big Coal into national laughingstocks.
The power of ridicule should be deployed here, said Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii. You have to get to the point where a major candidate for public office is disqualified when he or she denies climate science. Schatz was speaking to the annual Netroots Nation conference of progressive bloggers.
Jon Carson, head of Organizing for Action the group formed as an issue-based successor to the Obama presidential campaign put it this way: When a Republican or a Democrat says something crazy on climate, we should be ready to hold them accountable as progressives did on human biology.
The War on Women became a great 2012 selling point for Obama and the Democrats, helped in no part by Republican politicians intemperate remarks about rape.
Rep. Todd Aiken, R-Mo., blew away his Senate candidacy by discoursing on legitimate rape and how a womans body can shut down pregnancy. Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock argued that a pregnancy caused by rape was something that God intended to happen. Washingtons U.S. House hopeful John Koster discoursed about the rape thing and an acquaintance who bore a rapists child.
By contrast, Republican presidential candidates in 2012 made all manner of unsubstantiated, often off-the-wall statements about climate. The national media greeted such hot talk with glacial indifference, and has treated alarming climate news in the same fashion.....

Wait....you mean THEY want to point the fingers?
OK....I'm coining a new word..."Chutzpahubris".
They want ridicule? I’ve managed to shut up a few man-made global warming whackos with George Carlin’s “Saving the Planet”. (I struck out the f-bombs and sh-words.)
“We’re so self-important. So self-important. Everybody’s going to save something now. ‘Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save those snails.’ And the greatest arrogance of all: save the planet. What? Are these f-—ing people kidding me? Save the planet, we don’t even know how to take care of ourselves yet. We haven’t learned how to care for one another, we’re gonna save the f-—ing planet?
I’m getting tired of that sh—. Tired of that sh—. I’m tired of f-—ing Earth Day, I’m tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these white, bourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country is there aren’t enough bicycle paths. People trying to make the world safe for their Volvos. Besides, environmentalists don’t give a sh— about the planet. They don’t care about the planet. Not in the abstract they don’t. Not in the abstract they don’t. You know what they’re interested in? A clean place to live. Their own habitat. They’re worried that some day in the future, they might be personally inconvenienced. Narrow, unenlightened self-interest doesn’t impress me.”
The unedited version and the rest is here:
Thanks moose ... imagine the look on those agents faces in about one second after their announcement to God.
The climate change/global warming useful idiots are today’s Flat Earthers.
They’re going to have a hard time ridiculing us while we’re giving them noogies for being such goofy libtards.
>> climate change deniers
Joel is a climate parity denier.
In January 2011, he became deputy assistant to Obama, operational director of the Office of Public Engagement (OPE). In that job he worked for Obama friend/senior advisor Valerie Jarrett who oversaw OPE. To help Jarrett, widely viewed as distant and prickly, Carson organized Thursday evening listening sessions.
Here is the take away from all of this. The “climate change” fools have been outed and they have reached the point of desperation where they have to do something to save their sorry asses. Most people are starting to wise up to the fact that they have been lied to all of these years.
I was about to post that video too!
George Carlin nails it.
Reminds me of Pretentious Foods commentary in Brain Droppings. Pure ridicule.
G.C.'S GUIDE TO DINING OUT
There are certain clues that tell you how much a restaurant will cost. If the word cuisine appears in the advertising, it will be expensive. If they use the word food, it will be moderately priced. However, if the sign says eats, even though you'll save some money on food, your medical bills may be quite high.
I don't like trendy food. When I hear, "sauteed boneless panda groin," I know I'm in the wrong place. There's such a thing as pretentious food. Puree of woodchuck, marinated bat nipples, weasel chops, porcupine cacciatore. Or fried eagle. A guy said to me recently, "C'mon, we'll go to Baxter's, they have really great fried eagle." I'm thinkin' to myself, "Do I really wanna know this guy?"
However, if you are going to dine with pretentious people, here are some items you can order that are sure to impress: deep-dish moose balls, diced yak, badger gumbo, gorilla fondue, filet of hyena, jackal tartare, rack of prairie dog, free-range mole en brochette, wolf noodle soup, loin of chipmunk, curried woodpecker, stir-fried weasel, penguin scallopini, sweet-and-sour loon heads, whale chowder, toasted snail penises, koala flambe, wombat souvlaki, grenadine of mule, and candied goat anus.
I had a few Al Gore videos bookmarked, but they have been removed and I did not make copies.
If anyone has them or knows where to find them, please post a link.
1.) The center of the Earth is millions of degrees...
2.) The North Polar Ice Cap will be gone in 5 years...
“several million degrees...”
The power of ridicule should be deployed here,
Therein lies our best weapon short of a real one. Elmer Fudd (aka BHO) won’t take too kindly to being laughed at. Don’t bother with his insurance policy; he’s too dumb to realize that he is mocked daily. SWMNBN and the State Dept. are the Wicked Witch and her flying monkeys.
Then there’s Holder who is a Sgt. Schultz clone. The Gang of 8 is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I’m sure that others can come up with suitable aliases for the rest of the regime and Congress.
Well they could get Obama to sic the IRS all over us deniers, but hey, kinda too late for that.
And why we conservatives, especially candidates for political office should study Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”
The power of ridicule on the Global Warming side against the power of science on the fact-based science side. Who will win?
