Since her U.N. hysterics, climate change chicken little Greta Thunberg has become a pop culture icon, though her latest public incarnation might be more weird than anything else. Little Miss Greta’s become so ingrained in youth culture that not only is she one of its thought leaders, she has also become a featured artist at the world’s climate conscious discoteque scene.
On Friday's Real Time show, liberal comedian Bill Maher and his panel of mostly liberals promoted global warming alarmism with Commentary magazine's Noah Rothman as the only guest who argued against climate hysteria from a right-leaning point of view. Maher declared that climate change "deniers" who have children are "lousy parents" for not wanting to adopt left-wing proposals to react to climate change, and at one point, while complaining about Republicans "getting away with murder," was clearly also hinting at "murder" literally as he emphasized the word.
Over the past couple of days, morning shows on both CNN and MSNBC have hyped alarmist predictions made by a United Nations panel about how global warming will impact the world over the next 100 years. On CNN's New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota asked climate correspondent Bill Weir, "How do you get out of bed in the morning?" after he finished detailing the "dire" predictions.
Don’t you love when lefties slam Christians as hokey fanatics, but cling to their progressive pieties with as much reverence and zeal. Comedian and usually anti-Christian comedian Sarah Silverman tried to show social media users that she too understands the Christian perspective so long as it relates to climate change.
Tuesday on The View, the hosts spun a comment President Trump made about criminals entering the U.S., as another example of how Trump hated black people. While answering a reporter’s question about hurricane refugees, he warned we had to be careful about letting in “very bad people” such as “drug dealers” and “gang members” into the country. View co-host Whoopi Goldberg complained that this was clearly a racist statement about everyone who lived in the Bahamas.
Just as they did with President Trump’s comments referring to MS-13 gang members as “animals” in May of 2018, ABC and NBC spent Monday night misrepresenting the President’s comments to suggest he called the Bahamian people fleeing the destruction of Hurricane Dorian “very bad people”.
Appearing on Sunday afternoon’s MSNBC Live, the Conservative Policy Institute’s Rachel Bovard injected sanity into the liberal media’s delusional, week-long obsession over Sharpiegate while thousands across the Carolinas and Bahamas have lost life, limb, and property. Not surprisingly, the MSNBC liberals were caught off guard.
After a week of President Trump and the media battling over an outdated and edited projection map of Hurricane Dorian, which had been dubbed “Sharpiegate”, National Review editor Rich Lowry humorously ripped that media on Sunday for their obsession with the story by suggesting they’re like conspiracy theorists “analyzing this with the detail of the Zapruder tape”.
During a brief moment of self-awareness on Friday, MSNBC actually entertained the possibility that the media played a role in exaggerating the minor controversy over a White House weather map being altered with a Sharpie. The discussion in the 9:00 a.m. ET hour worried that the press was too “fixated” on the topic and just creating a “feedback loop” of excessive coverage.
As the Bahamas reels from the death and destruction Hurricane Dorian caused, the news media continue to exaggerate a connection between hurricanes to climate change. Claims ranged from global warming making it “bigger, wetter — and more deadly,” to calling Dorian’s stall a “signal of climate change,” to insisting climate change is “worsening” hurricanes (without proof).
As is usually the case with CNN, hosts are reduced to no more than puppets in Jeffrey Zucker’s play, willfully reading from nearly identical scripts as they peddle their daily doses of venom for not only President Trump, but anyone who stands in the way of their far-left, anti-gun, pro-abortion, and pro-Green New Deal vision (to name a few policies). So for seven hours on Wednesday, CNN’s primetime hosts began each of the ten 2020 Democratic presidential “climate crisis” town halls by asserting that Hurricane Dorian exists because of climate change.
Well, you knew this one was coming. A mere 63 seconds past 5:00 p.m. Eastern and the start of CNN’s seven-hours of town halls on “The Climate Crisis,” Situation Room host and supposedly revered journalist Wolf Blitzer opened this monstrosity of an event by falsely blaming Hurricane Dorian’s entire existence and destruction on climate change.
