Note for Liberal/Socialists/totalitarian marchers:
The world has always been in conflict with socialism. Your attitudes are nothing new. Nor are the results bloodletting, death, and destruction. You are being fed garbage and willingly accepting while blindly following like sheep to slaughter.
It took time but many countries broke the chains or got enough and rebelled FOR FREEDOM and against socialism…Gee I wonder why?
For those pushing the “Islamaphobia” meme, if the US were so willing to accept the fundamental radical ideology of Islam, then why did they fight against those in the Middle East that pushed it, not just in the recent past but from the earliest days of the country when they got tired of paying “Tribute” all the way through WWI and II when Communist ruled Russia and the Middle Eastern Ottoman empire worked as allies?
Hey, I don’t recall any “pro-climate change” discussion where massive flooding or horrible results from volcanoes was mentioned. Don’t think those folks back in the earlier centuries contributed nearly as much as the idiots who fly from place to place to give speeches and listen to others on their doomsday climate change pontifications all the while not practice good environmental habits themselves, or contributing much to the world other than hot air.
The same events have occurred throughout history some not so significant and others world changing. Now, man’s inability to act responsibly or consider the ramifications of actions long term have had and do continue to make a difference in the world habitat and weather-wise–that is an absolute fact. But to say that WE HUMANS affect the change of all climates and have done so repeatedly is a false narrative made to help someone get richer — period.
The difference I see is that now those who are pushing this meme are willing to destroy anyone with a different viewpoint, either professionally, socially, or legally. THAT is the real climate change that should be considered. The “climate” being human perception not weather related events (except as how some dumbarse uses chemicals in an effort to control the weather).
People believing all these things need to do research themselves instead of believing what they are given.
