The left’s endless crusade to silence debates it can’t win on fair terms recently reached a new low. Alarmists are literally now trying to criminalize disagreement.
From Daily Caller:
Scientists from several universities and research centers even asked Obama to use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) to prosecute groups that “have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, as a means to forestall America’s response to climate change.”
RICO was a law designed to take down organized crime syndicates, but scientists now want it to be used against scientists, activists and organizations that voice their disagreement with the so-called “consensus” on global warming.
Charging climate skeptics as organized criminals under RICO was first attempted by a sitting elected official, Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse. Democrats in Congress also launched partisan “investigations” into those who dared to disagree with Obama’s Constitution-trampling environmental extremism earlier this year.
Arizona Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva has even forced people out of university research positions and destroyed their careers for reaching conclusions other than what the “pro-tolerance,” “pro-diversity” ideologues of the left have deemed to be the infallible truth of global warming.
And what happens once all disagreement has been brow-beaten and persecuted into silence? That’s when liberals point out that no one can find any disagreement among experts (self-fulfilling prophecy).
From the Liberal-to-English Dictionary:
Consensus of Experts: When there is significant disagreement among experts; when liberals censor and retaliate against dissenting views to manufacture the appearance of unity, to silence debates they cannot win on fair terms.
Education: Indoctrinating public school victims into becoming racially-sensitive little environmentalists who cannot do basic math, have no comprehension of history, and think the U.S. is a violent, bigoted place that needs to be fundamentally transformed into a socialist “Utopia.”
