Climate Clowns Try to Silence Krauthammer

Because nothing says the science is settled like silencing the doubters. These budding Nazis really hate free speech, don’t they?

Charles Krauthammer says it right up front in his Washington Post column: “I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier.”

He does, however, challenge the notion that the science on climate change is settled and says those who insist otherwise are engaged in “a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate.”

How ironic, then, that some environmental activists launched a petition urging the Post not to publish Krauthammer’s column on Friday.

Their response to opinions they disagree with is to suppress the speech.

Brad Johnson (@ClimateBrad), the editor of HillHeat.com and a former Think Progress staffer, boasted on Twitter that 110,000 people had urged the newspaper “to stop publishing climate lies” like the Krauthammer piece.

I understand that many people are passionate about global warming and consider skeptics to be flat-earthers. Those who don’t like the arguments by Krauthammer, a Fox News contributor, should by all means criticize, dispute, denounce and otherwise go at him. That’s how debate takes place in a country with a vibrant media culture.

Instead, these folks believe that censorship is preferable. Why engage Krauthammer when they might just be able to employ pressure tactics to silence him? And what’s the difference between this and shouting down a speaker at a town hall?

Clearly they’re deathly afraid of opposing viewpoints because it exposes them as frauds. And this tool Johnson snivels like a butthurt bitch when people challenge him:


Poor baby.

    Well I’m so glad that you take the chance to state “I understand that many people are passionate about global warming and consider skeptics to be flat-earthers.’

    No spin for those with the cognitive skills to decide for themselves that the environmental zeelots are fakers, fraudsters, terrified of losing their gravy train, corrupt, immoral, and criminal.

    And then try to rig the comment section, even though it’s not exactly what I would call crowded.

    Me .. I’m a denier.

    Long ago, I was told that “people who eat tomatoes are going to die.”
    Since I can’t prove or disprove this hypothesis, I must deny it.

    1. Al Gore cannot state what the “correct” temperature should be. We have trees frozen in permafrost in California since the 1400s. Why was it warming back then if it shouldn’t be warmer now?

    2. C02 has not declined yet temperatures have not risen. This means your idiotic notions of C02 causing warming are bunk. This is basic Science: if A causes B, then B should always happen if A is present.

    Those who believed in a flat earth also believed that “monsters dwell there” (off the edge of earth). The fear is on a scale of the climate changers, not the climate change deniers.

    Neo…I’m thinking that the kill-factor for all tomato-eaters is a solid 1.0.

    You need a better analogy…

    I wonder how much of this is residual bitterness over the election of George Bush. They feel that everything has gone down hill since then (the economy, terrorism, etc.). Since Al Gore lost, and his cause is now global warming, it becomes their cause.

    Liberal like the phrase, “Flat earthers”. I am not sure anyone ever exited. Eratosthenes calculated the circumference of the earth in about 200 BC. YES, Christopher Columbus and the King and Queen of Spain knew the earth was round! Circumference folks. Eratosthenes was a little off, his measuring tools were not the best, but they all knew it was a long way from Spain to Japan. Columbus was lucky, he hit Central America!

    The only successful environmental initiative that Gore pushed through while Vice president was the one that cut the amount of water your toilet tank could hold. He and Clinton signed the Kioto (sp) accords but never brought it up for a vote, since the Senate had taken an advisory vote of 97 – 0 against it. Like a true money-grubbing coward, Gore waited until he was out of office and not subject to the wrath of the voters before pushing the global warming scam and making himself rich in the process.

    Come on folks. This is the government speaking to suppress the freedom of speech and we ARE here to help you!
