Shameless Al Gore goes woke
Never let a crisis go to waste. As America confronts real issues of race, justice and civil order, global warming campaigners can’t resist shamelessly glomming on.
CFACT’s Marc Morano has detailed coverage at Climate Depot.
Here’s Al Gore:
These issues are inextricably braided together…The one stupid trick that white supremacists have used for 150 years is to accentuate racial division in order to build support among lower-income, majority-white voters for a corporate agenda that actually hurts them. It does this by increasing the amount of pollution in their communities… The training is about a good deal more than simply learning the facts and figures and narratives that make up the slideshow. It will have a deep and sustained emphasis on the nexus between racism and diversity and the climate challenge… I’m optimistic that joining together the climate movement and the racial equality movement will give us strength in numbers that will ultimately lead to success.
Divide and conquer much?
Consider National Review’s John O’Sullivan’s first law:
“All organizations that are not actually right-wing will over time become left-wing.”
Here’s the Sierra Club, which could be the poster child for once venerable organizations that have been co-opted by the Left and radicalized:
We will never survive the climate crisis without ending white supremacy… Racism Is Killing the Planet: The ideology of white supremacy leads the way toward disposable people and a disposable natural world… When the United States pours carbon pollution into the air, knowing that people in countries that have contributed much less to the climate crisis will face the worst of the consequences, that is white supremacy… When big polluters try to buy our democracy so they can keep making money by devaluing the lives of people of color, that is white supremacy… When you come to see and understand these intersections between white supremacy and environmental destruction, you’ll find yourself at a crossroads. That crossroads will force you to decide which side you’re on.
Every person on Earth has a right to equal justice under law.
That’s worth fighting for.
Keep your inaccurate climate computer models and inefficient, subsidized, “renewable” energy fortunes, and the energy poverty that flows from them, out of it.
