Some Green/Left hate speech
"There is no greater crime being perpetuated on future generations than that committed by those who deny climate change. The scientific consensus is so overwhelming that to argue against it is to perpetuate a dangerous fraud. Denial has become a yardstick by which intelligence can be tested. The term climate sceptic is now interchangeable with the term mindless fool"
The author is Jarrod Gilbert, a New Zealand sociologist and I put up his whole article on Greenie Watch recently and pointed out how unsavoury and ill-informed it was. As I sometimes do, I sent him a link to my criticisms.
Unusually, he replied. He said: "The headline wasn’t mine and I certainly don’t think climate change denial should be criminalised. The article itself, I stand by."
He obviously had not looked again at the very first sentence of his article (see above), which called climate denial a crime.
So I sent him the excerpt above with the comment: "It's pure hate speech and very offensive to the millions who disagree with the orthodoxy"
And he even replied to that, but with a single word: "whatever".
In true Leftist style, he is unconcerned about being a hater. "My hates are good" is no doubt his opinion of the matter. Leftists are consumed by hate. It's what they do. Their "compassion" is just camouflage.
