It’s plain to see that the left does not believe in free speech or most American values for that matter.
Although they have benefited from living in a country that grants them the right to think for themselves, believe what they want to believe, and say what they want to say, they try to silence those whose ideas differ from their own.
We know that they’ll try to destroy anyone that disagrees with their agenda.Their hypocrisy knows no bounds. This is particularly true in the case of climate change.
For decades the left has pushed this concept, in an effort to extend government power and overreach. If they can convince people that companies are somehow destroying the environment, they can justify massive expanses of the federal government’s power, in a bid to erode the civil liberties granted to us by the Constitution.
It’s the real reason the left pushes global warming so much, despite the shaky evidence to back it.
Now we’ve learned they are taking even more aggressive steps to protect their faulty agenda, by attacking freedom of thought and speech.
From Daily Caller:
A panel of Democrats voted Friday to approve a final draft of the party’s platform to promote “Progressive Democratic Values,” which apparently includes investigating energy companies who “misled” shareholders about global warming.
“Another joint proposal calling on the Department of Justice to investigate alleged corporate fraud on the part of fossil fuel companies who have reportedly misled shareholders and the public on the scientific reality of climate change was also adopted by unanimous consent,” according to the Democratic National Convention’s website
Has there ever been a more disgusting phrase than “Progressive Democratic Values”?
They might as well call it “The Destruction of America.” Forgetting the fact that it’s an oxymoron (since when do democrats have values?), let’s look at the facts. The democrats want to suppress groups that question the validity of climate change. They are willing to prosecute any company or research group that dares challenge the establishment’s stance that the world is getting warming.
They want you to believe that scientists and companies that genuinely question climate change as committing “fraud” and “misleading shareholders.”
Since when is it fraud to question something? Isn’t the very nature of scientific research to question everything? How else do we discover anything unless we’re willing to challenge what we currently believe?
But the democrats don’t care about science, facts, or free thought, if it gets in the way of their goal of government domination.
Republican lawmakers and AGs have pushed back, calling the investigations into Exxon and think tanks an assault on free speech.
Some Republican AGs recently warned their liberal counterparts that if skeptics can be investigated for misrepresenting global warming, alarmists can be as well.
“If it is possible to minimize the risks of climate change, then the same goes for exaggeration,” Republican AGs wrote. “If minimization is fraud, exaggeration is fraud.”
As someone who’s worked within the EPA, I’ve seen firsthand how climate changers exaggerate the facts (I was once stonewalled by someone over a conversation about a snow storm, true story). If the democrats can attack skeptics, conservatives can go after those who distort the facts for their favor.
Democrats have largely scoffed at free speech arguments, saying Exxon and others were committing fraud by disagreeing with the Obama administration over the severity of global warming and the effects of potential climate policies.
Scoff! Who cares about things like free speech or the facts!? How dare we disagree with the agenda of Barack Obama! The sacred president whose policies have destroyed our way of life should nary be questioned!
This is the kind of toxic, idiotic ideology that has gripped the Democratic Party for decades. It’s a blind refusal of the facts, in favor of their destructive, un-American agenda.
And they wonder why more and more people are supporting Donald Trump.
