Here’s a little update to my last post, “War on Dissenters.” No less an eminent figure than Al Gore himself, high priest of the Church of Climatology, also said, at a speech at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival down in Austin, that “climate change deniers” (whatever that means, exactly) need to be “punished.” Though apparently, unlike others I mentioned calling for prison time, he didn’t specify exactly how this punishment should take place. Perhaps all “Deniers” (meaning, from what I gather, anyone who opposes more punitive “environmental” government regulations on business and agriculture) would be shipped off to a Climate-Denier Gulag somewhere. Not sure where it would be; I hear, due to global warming, Siberia is getting too warm to be effectively punitive, like it was in the good old days of the USSR.
Believe it or not, once upon a time, liberals actually used to support free speech!
Gore also praised Pope Francis (“How about that Pope!”) for being on board the statist “climate change” bandwagon. I don’t know about you, but I have so much more confidence in the Pope, knowing he has Al Gore’s approval.
Of course, it’s not clear how long free speech will last on Al Gore’s great invention, the Internet, after the Democrat members of the FCC (evidently on the orders of Dear Leader) voted last month to put more regulation on the internet under Title II rules. No doubt, it’s only a matter of time before Big Brother starts finding ways to “regulate” and punish dissenters and “deniers” on teh interwebz. So enjoy my denial and dissent while you still can, folks!
