Why do Climate Denial and Racism go Hand in Hand?
Once again Warmists are abusing the messenger rather than discussing the facts. And they attempt to link only two individual climate skeptics to racism. So even if all they say is true and relevant, they have no statistically sound basis for any generalization. A sample of two is most unlikely to yield accurate generalizations. It would certainly fail a test of statistical significance. Two swallows don't make a summer any more than one does. So the post below is yet another example of the low intellectual level behind most Warmist writing
Famously climate denying Senator Ted Cruz announced for President this week.
Above, see Senator Cruz’s extravagant praise for one of the 20th century’s most prominent Southern racist segregationists, Jesse Helms. There’s a little well-documented history there for those too young to remember.
I’ve posted before on the link between racism and climate change denial, and I’ve noted that Senator Jim Inhofe is to climate denial as Strom Thurmond was to civil rights. Both clung to outmoded and terribly destructive irrational prejudice, long beyond what reason would dictate. Even Thurmond softened his racial rhetoric in later years – while Inhofe has grown only more bombastic and shrill.
Here is yet another example, in Senator Cruz open admiration for Jesse Helms. Maybe there’s an answer to this in the way the denialist brain functions, that’s an area for further research.
