White Supremacists and Climate Change Denial

Peter Sinclair writes at Climate Denial Crock of the Week:

I’ve pointed out before the comfy co-existence of racism and climate change denial on display at the recent CPAC convention, and been criticized for making so obvious a connection. Well, here it is again.

If you pick up the video above at about 2:48, you’ll see a recap of this week’s kerfuffle about a senior analyst at the “conservative” Heritage Foundation, and his, well, uh, frank, views on white supremacy.

Heritage, one of DC’s leading sewerpipes of climate denial, claims they had no idea one of their guys was a cross-burner – but watch the video and you’ll see him – at a public meeting covered by CSpan – spew a nauseating race-vs-IQ spiel that would be worthy of, well, the Wall Street Journal.

But even the Journal cut that shit out 20 years ago.

Maybe there should be research into the DNA and brain structure of climate deniers and racists, to find out if both behaviors spring from the same genetic deficiency.   And maybe the Heritage Foundation should do a report on that. And maybe it should be published in the Wall Street Journal.

It’s just a thought.

    I wonder if the connective tissue couldn’t be fundamentalism, rather than genes.

      retroactive recall on all ‘gene’ association, ever
      sell, buy, unit
      besides, that’s just wolves claiming to have IQ
      trying to play strategy on the shoulders of genius

      if they’re so science with their genes and their evolution
      their biomass and their variables
      their natural selection and their conservation
      maybe they’d find in there a few parameters of bullshit and mysticism that they’ve been assuming, or god forbid that they had evolved to hide and deny that they’re identical to ‘people they study’. evolved to be completely incapable of witnessing the truth. imagine the ramifications.

      in this area, geese hardly fly south and i don’t see them in V more often than i do. is it wrong? why? is it a sign?

      always explore all information, intelligence, options, yeah?
      i read your question and i wonder about the search for Sagittarius A

      other than that i’d transitively take it to be process of elimination despite neither morpheme being clearly defined in grapheme. i don’t recall ancients ever weighing brains. that’s odd. it was always hearts and feathers. chears~

    So climate change inquiry is moral issue, not a scientific one, eh? Orthodoxies are all the same– once they get established, disagreeing isn’t about interpreting facts, it’s about personal flaws. Uh huh. 16 years and no warming, w/ CO2 now hitting 400 ppm. Maybe you can explain that, but I highly doubt it.

    The really sick thing about Good German’s race-baiting to support the Climate Grift is that this global scam for control and reduction of the “mud races” they so detest was designed and implemented by the very Anglo eugenicists from the Fabian Society at Oxford whom he supports. The level of Good German’s deceit would be entertaining if it weren’t so exceedingly evil.

    so conservative richwine was basically spewing the same racist,’iq’ based genetics supremacist bullshit that progressive eugenics supporters were touting decades ago…which is quite ironic,especially when pointed out by left/progressives like maddow in the clip & ‘good german’

    —“Maybe there should be research into the DNA and brain structure of climate deniers and racists, to find out if both behaviors spring from the same genetic deficiency. And maybe the Heritage Foundation should do a report on that. And maybe it should be published in the Wall Street Journal.”—

    and realistically,i think that most progressives & climate change fundamentalists today, would fully support such a study you’d stipulated w/ sarcasm… which they would use to point out that those who disagree or question supposedly empirical ‘science’..(much like eugenics was considered ‘science’ back in its heyday) are then supposedly proven,via such research, as genetically deficient & inferior.

    so again..yet more irony here.

    Managing climate change involves things like global cooperation, the UN, and all that NWO stuff that you’re predisposed to worry about if you’re already a paranoid racist.
