How to keep hope alive
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, July 29, 2008

Step 1 - Buy into the cult of climate change.

Step 2 - Create victim classes.

Enter Rep. James Clyburn, to make it official:
“It is critical our community be an integral and active part of the debate because African-Americans are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change economically, socially and through our health and well-being,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., said July 29.

[...]

“Though far less responsible for climate change, African-Americans are significantly more vulnerable to its effects than non-Hispanic whites,” the report says. “Health, housing, economic well-being, culture, and social stability are harmed from such manifestations of climate change as storms, floods, and climate variability.

“African-Americans are also more vulnerable to higher energy bills, unemployment, recessions caused by global energy price shocks, and a greater economic burden from military operations designed to protect the flow of oil to the U.S,” it says.
It just never stops, does it?

And Step 3? Redistribute, redistribute, redistribute:
The report suggested implementing a “fee, tax or allowance auction on polluters,” which was meant to “eliminate the financial burden on low-income and moderate-income households. This would pay for efforts to reduce global warming. Hoerner said that although it would cause product costs to increase, under his policy, the revenue from the “fee, tax, or allowance auction payment” would be redistributed to consumers to offset the higher costs.
What a grand idea, no? Jesse and Al must be licking their chops. And if I had to bet, there'll be a sermon soon from the pulpit of Trinity.

You just can't make this stuff up.

There it is. I just realized it.

Black people somehow suffer "more" from "climate change" ( which is a total and complete canard), yet somehow white and other people who live under the same climate don’t suffer as much.

Now, imagine if someone said, "You know, I believe that ____ affects white (or Caucasian) people more than others." And that ___ is something that affects everyone. Wanna bet that the person making the statement would be called a racist and/or a moron?

Clyburn is a racist AND a moron. And he is just one more reason that if you vote Democrat, you put in power people whose IQ numbers are in single digits.

I thought it was all those rich people with beachfront property who’d be hit hardest by global warming.
