Liberal Apocalypse Now!

"We'll be eight degrees hotter in ten, not ten but 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow. Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals. Civilization will have broken down."

Ted Turner


Millennial fever is a well known phenomenon. The last time it happened around 1000 CE, portions of Europe decided the apocalypse was nigh, began selling their possessions and preparing for the end.

Around 2000, the media and people with fallout shelters managed to convince a sizable amount of the public that the Y2K bug would cause everything from nuclear disasters to bank failures were imminent. Of course none of that came about.

While liberals like to paint a picture of conservative Republicans as crazed doommongers eagerly anticipating the apocalypse, it's liberals who have given us the two great apocalyptic panics of the last 50 years.


"Not doing it is suicide. Just like dropping bombs on each other, nuclear weapons is suicide. We've got to stop doing the suicidal two things, which are hanging on to our nuclear weapons and after that we've got to stabilize the population."

Ted Turner


When liberals don't like a policy, they turn it into a giant boogeyman. The liberal response to the cold war was to run around screaming for 30 years that the nuclear missiles were about to fall and wipe out the entire planet. Endless tedious novels, movies and songs were produced based on the premise that we were all about to die. At the heart of that obsession was the idea of "Nuclear Winter", a concept which had as little credibility as human centered global warming does.

Nuclear Winter and the liberal understanding of Global Warming had one important thing in common, they were both pseudoscientific theories that postulated that humans could somehow destroy the earth for our sins, those sins being the sins of fighting Communism and buying consumer products. In a certain light of course both Nuclear Winter and Global Warming were the punishment for a single sin, capitalism. It isn't that liberals don't like their luxuries, their large homes, their luxury goods and their cars. It's just that they don't like the idea of widescale prosperity or a system where there is no real deprived underclass. And so is born Global Warming, which proclaims in short that if we don't start driving up the cost of products fast so as to price them out of the range of working people, the world will end.


"We already have too much economic growth in the United States. Economic growth in rich countries like ours is the disease, not the cure."

Paul Erlich (Al Gore advisor)


The same liberals who routinely pooh pooh the idea that Islamic terrorism is a grave threat despite the thousands dead, expect us to believe that the real threat involves the extinction of the non-extinct polar bears. Forget fighting a war, they cry, the real problem is that if we don't do something soon, we'll be all reduced to eating each other soon enough and wandering the land trying to bite out each other's brains.

If conservatives like their war movies, it's clear that liberals like their Science Fiction.

For thousands of years of recorded history the earth has gone through warming and cooling periods. The fossil records back it up. We've gone from hippos in the Thames to Londoners buttoned up against the cold, long before the Industrial Revolution came along. Humans can kill each other, we can wipe out entire forests, but we can no more destroy the earth than we could win a boxing match with an elephant.

Liberals know that too.


"If I were reincarnated, I would wish to be returned to Earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels."

Prince Philip, WWF


The goal of Nuclear Panic and Global Warming was to create within Americans a twinned sense of great power and impotence through the belief that we were so powerful that any wrong move by us will destroy everything including ourselves. The goal was to make us believe that we were a bull and the world was a china shop and that any use of our power would destroy everything.

That in a phrase sums up the liberal mindset on every American issue from foreign policy and national defense to industry. America is just too dangerous. The only solution is to diminish, to shrink within ourselves, to feel guilty and ashamed for everything we've done and for everything we're set to do.

And at the heart of that is the real faith of liberalism, not in hope but in fear. Forget the positive slogans and the upbeat messages. Behind them all is the propaganda of naked raw fear. And the message is simple, "Stop what you're doing or we'll all die."

"Stop showering. Stop using toilet paper. Stop carrying plastic bags. Stop drinking bottled water. Stop driving. Stop flying. Stop going anywhere except to global warming rallies. Stop doing anything. Just stop. Stop. Stop. Stop."

There's nothing positive left about the environmental movement which runs as much on guilt and fear as any middle ages cleric. It's become a horde of Chicken Littles crying that the sky is about to fall, not because they believe it, but because they want us to believe it. They need us to believe it so that we're afraid.


"I think if we don't overthrow capitalism, we don't have a chance of saving the world ecologically. I think it is possible to have an ecological society under socialism. I don't think it's possible under capitalism."

Problems require solutions. Frighten people with a seemingly plausible threat, never mind that it doesn't exist, and you can harness the power of nightmares to implement your agenda. It's what liberals have repeatedly accused conservatives of, and they should know because they are the biggest practitioners of it.

There is nothing positive about liberalism. Subtract the guilt and fear and nothing is left. All liberalism comes down to is government control, social conformity and political terror. And to get the public to accept those three, you need a grave threat. You need to convince them to ignore the social crises and real threats created by their policies and focus on the nightmare they have created. You need to recirculate and distribute that nightmare wholesale to the public through TV shows, books, movies and films.

You need to convince the public that they're going to die, that their children will starve and eat each other... unless they vote a liberal in.

You need to convince them that they're at fault. That they're guilty. That their very existence is a toxic plague. And then they'll bow their heads, hate themselves and surrender to a higher power. Not God. But the men in charge.

Welcome to socialism.

yes but the important question is will the polar cities keep out the hordes of rampaging cannibals and polar bears

as well as a cannibalistic ted turner leading his army of polar bears to the arctic on a quest for human flesh?

Prince Philip's 4 sisters all were married to Nazi SS men . British royals are not in touch with reality and too closely tied to nazi thought.


****************************
Two Words: Buy American!!

Polar cities inhabitants will have eaten all the Polar bears before turning on one another in their lust for meat as temps climb to a sunny 100F year round.
Al Gore will be president of Peru at that time having given up in disgust at the inaction of Americans to stem the tide of carbon emmissions by using poison light bulbs and return to glass bottles for milk!
Screaming Viva La Revolution..from his balcony in Lima, he will be pelted with lemon cream pies but feel gratified that he is serving a purpose in allowing the Peruvian people to vent their hot hostility on his person.
Prince Philip will have died and been stuffed by a taxidermist so that people can adore and wonder at the the marvellous things spawned by his World Wildlife Federation. He will live then side by side with Trigger the Wonder Horse in the Believe it or Else we have ways of making you believe It Museum in Berlin.
The entire meager population of the world ... all 666,666 of them will file past his stuffed body once a year in homage. It will have replaced Mecca and Jerusalem as a holy site.

I wanna be the first to pelt Al Gore with pies! He invented this new global warming revolution and as such thinks he is exempt from following its principles. How very communist of him! Gore and people like him want to unite the world under an idiotic principle and then like pied pipers lead them mindlessly into communism.

Get people to stop thinking and become mindlessly obediant about one thing and they'll be the same about another.

And for that Al Gore gets a mincemeat pie in the face.

Polar bears...sweet looking and all white and fluffy are really nothing more than Grizzly bears that adapted to global freezing in the artic. Grizzly bears are superior. They can survive on plant life and meat, polar bears can't. Where's Yo? She knows more about wild life.

So we have a little global warming and the world's bears adapted. No big tragedy. Nature has its own ebb and flow. We've had freezing and warming and the world still turns.

Personally, I think the global warming theory is nothing more than junk science. Unfortunately, scientists who speak out against it are slapped down and some actually have lost their jobs.

Nightline did a story on it a few months ago. I'll try to find the link.

When prophecies of doom are not working out, escalate the prophecies. Global temperatures maxed ten years ago, and are now starting to drop. If they continue to drop, expect to hear prophecies of doom go even further over the top - at least until they decide that rather than rich people, white people, and Americans are cooking the planet, they come up with a new theory hat explains that they are freezing the planet.

Scientists in the U.K. have reported evidence that further refutes one theory of global climate change.

In the heated debate over global warming, there is an opposing idea, called the cosmic ray theory, which contends that climate change is simply caused by cosmic rays coming from the sun.

Keli, the Yo is here! :] On behalf of we conservationists, man (said in the looses sense of the word) has no regard for the planet or it's inhabitants, whether plant, animal or human or it's Creator.

Man believes there are no consequences for his actions. He finds conservationists a joke and a hindrance to the advancement of civilisation.

As far as "man" is concerned, G-d gave us the planet to destroy everything He created in it. Thus, man's actions are physical proof of his rebellion and hate towards G-d himself. It shows he believes he's not accountable to anyone.

When man destroys one aspect of creation, it effects all aspects of creation. Man denies the reality of this. BUT! He won't deny the reality that if the gap on one spark plug is off, it effects how the engine runs. That if you remove one part on an engine, like the air filter - it will eventually ruin your engine.

The environment Hashem created is just like the car. If one thing is off, it affects everything. You may not feel it now, but you will eventually. Sadly, by then it's too late.

This is becoming a book, so - can polar bears vanish? Yes. Will it effect the world? Yes. Will Al Gore ever grow a brain? No. :]
