Charles Krauthammer attacked the “Myth of Settled-Science” and labeled Obama the “propagandist in chief”. Talk about hitting the nail on the head. No wonder Libs try to shut him up, so bad.
But even having their own radical crew in the White House and controlling the Senate, you would think that would pacify liberals. No, it only exacerbates them if they don’t get everything they want. They repeat the term the science is settled and that (any)debate is over. Challenge any of their conclusions and that is what you’ll hear.
In his article, The myth of ‘settled science’, Krauthammer says:
None of this is dispositive. It doesn’t settle the issue. But that’s the point. It mocks the very notion of settled science, which is nothing but a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate. As does the term “denier” — an echo of Holocaust denial, contemptibly suggesting the malevolent rejection of an established historical truth.
But welcome to the alternative reality of the progressive left. As my friend likes to say, they think they can repeal reality. (that’s their stand and their sticking to it.) The funny part is to call their self-labeled political enemies “deniers”. As science teaches it always wants certifiable proof. That should make scientists “deniers” by their nature. And it could make science an institution of denial.
But better than that, think of all the things the Left denies. For a crowd that accepts the “hockey stick” of global warming as a threat, they have an awful lot of denial. Denying Islamists’ agenda, denying effects of Obamacare. They deny the threat of fiscal crisis. They argue against the severity of the fiscal problem, as something that more spending will solve. It is akin to believing carbon is the biggest problem in the world, then calling to double the amount of carbon in ten years. That’s the equivalent. Their answer is always spend more money, it should be no surprise.
Their hysteria is far from settled; it’s fluid and flows in ebbs, but can always escalate at the swat of a fly. It has to outdo the last hysterical outrage. It’s on a collision course with reality. When faced with reality, it snorts and reverts to name-calling and the Alinsky tactics it is known for. It reflexively calls for the power of federal government to oppose their foes and opponents and silence them. It has an incessant dependency on big-government.
What is not settled is Liberal hysteria, its always looking for the next opportunity to be offended. Progressives reactions match or exceed the hysteria.
According to Progressives: “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!”
As Krauthammer says, we want a cleaner environment, and improve efficiency and resources. But the left would gladly prevent our use of resources and anything related, including the XL Pipeline.
Climate-change proponents have made their cause a matter of fealty and faith. For folks who pretend to be brave carriers of the scientific ethic, there’s more than a tinge of religion in their jeremiads. If you whore after other gods, the Bible tells us, “the Lord’s wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit” (Deuteronomy 11).
Obama came out to rail against Republicans in a press conference, and lectured us on strengthening the infrastructure. The next day, the administration announces Kerry and the State Dep. needs more time to study comments on the Keystone XL Pipeline, putting off the decision until after the elections.(5 1/2 years is not enough) All convenient to raising money from outrage, and whooping up Liberal hysteria.
