RINO: ‘Denial’ a cancer on conservatism

More projection from the alarmists.

RINO Mike Stafford writes:

… The abuse directed at climate researchers sheds light on a tragic political truth — a cancer is consuming the soul of American conservatism. Conservatism is taking on many of the hallmarks of a cult — one in which information and doctrine are received, without question, from recognized authority figures or sources, and in which dissent cannot be tolerated. The conservative cult views the political process in apocalyptic terms, and sees its opponents as demonically evil. Sadly, climate denial is a key pillar in this cult’s ideology…

Stafford is the Delaware coordinator for Republicans for Environmental Protection.

But as Steve Milloy asked in a September 2010 Washington Times op-ed:

Just who are the Republicans against environmental protection?

Read “Republicans green with Democrat envy.”

  1. “one in which information and doctrine are received, without question, from recognized authority figures or sources, and in which dissent cannot be tolerated.”

    Sound like anyone else we know?

  2. “There are many methods for predicting the future. For example, you can read horoscopes, tea leaves, tarot cards, or crystal balls. Collectively, these methods are known as “nutty methods.” Or you can put well-researched facts into sophisticated computer models, more commonly referred to as “a complete waste of time.” – Scott Adams

    I am reminded of how, in the former Soviet Union, people were put in prison or insane asylums simply for disagreeing with national policies. The rationale was that a person had to be either a criminal or insane for disagreeing with such obviously superior ideas as were coming out of the collected weirdos who established Soviet policies. But all of those weirdos who helped to destroy the Soviet Union’s economy were put out of work upon the collapse of that economy, and spread themselves over the globe, morphing into ecologically correct purveyors of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development. And now we see the fruits of their labor, where rational people are now delusional, and in need of remediation and treatment. We thought that this would go away with the release of emails and data, but they were just taking a deep breath and are plunging back into the fight. There is money and power at stake here, lots of money and power. These people are desperate to hang onto that.

  3. Alarmist – Someone who uses voodoo-science, fraud, intimidation, and taxpayer dollars to further an agenda that has nothing to do with pollution. Further, they use the left wing media to spread the term “denier” to label anyone who respects the scientific method in an asinine attempt to equate those who don’t swallow the AGW KoolAid with Islamic extremists and other anti-semites who deny the holocaust took place.

    Denier- In the example of climate change, it is not applicable. No one denies the climate is changing. If it wasn’t it would be broken. What is debated is the speed of the change,is the change necessarily bad, the data supporting the claims about C02, the integrity of the researchers on the government dole who also happen to support a zero-growth economic agenda, and if the human race should devolve to a level equal to medieval times in order to achieve an atmospheric C02 level that is considered acceptable to people who see plagues and natural disasters as a good thing.

  4. Alarmist – Someone that already knows something bad is going to happen and needs money
    Denier – Someone that needs proof beyond a doubt something bad will happen and has money
