Another Climate Alarmist Lets It Slip: Why They Want To Scare You

World savers are anything but. They always have an unspoken motive. H.L. Mencken saw the self-appointed saviors for what they were almost a century ago, when he said the “whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

    “high school diploma, left academia for a journalism internship before acquiring the final credits required to complete her degree”

    thus …Klein pontificates economics , the atmospheric sciences to us.. the great unwashed

  • Naomi Klein has always been either delusional or deliberately misleading. Going back about 20 years when she put out a documentary film about Argentinian factory workers forming cooperatives to take back factories that were closed across the country (“The Take” — 2004, Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis).

    Anyway, the whole premise of the film was cooperativism versus “evil capitalism”. The film was in Spanish, with English subtitles or voiceovers. I listened closely to the Spanish, and the workers on a number of occasions stated that one of the reasons for the factory closures was because of the greed of their own Unions — workers got too comfortable and demanded too much, hence it led to bankruptcies and closures. In other words it wasn’t just “greedy capitalists”, it was also “greedy Communist Unions and workers”. But those opinions by the workers themselves WERE NOT TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH! Not only that, but the workers also stated that the “worker-owned” factory did not produce nearly the same salaries and benefits as when the original owners were in charge. NONE OF THAT WAS TRANSLATED.

    Klein is either academically dishonest, or blinded by her own ideological hatred for capitalism.

      She deserves to be horsewhipped.

    Marxism is the zombie that just won’t die.

  • And yet it is still effective.

    he Sovie Union was behind Liberation Theology, I would not be surprised if the Russians are behind the global warming movement threat in an attempt to ruin capitalism. They are also probably behind the migrants that will be the ruin of the stronger EU members’ economy.

      No. It is arabia; they are funding enviro groups so that we do not extract our oil and use the oil we extract for them while they gain all monetary advantages. They fund our education filled with their propaganda. We could shut islam down in a second; but they paid our leaders with our money given to them. Makes no sense why we should let this continue.

      Really brilliant words BCF pointed out : “Mencken saw the self-appointed saviors for what they were almost a century ago, when he said the “whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

    Naomi Klein wrote “The Shock Doctrine”, positing that capitalists use crises to further their goals.
    A shameful tactic, I’m sure you’ll agree.

    Global Warming is and has always been just a means to the end of Global Socialism.

    “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate”

    This evil bitch should be drowned in what’s left of the Aral Sea. That would teach her a lesson about how Socialism is good for the Earth.

    No wonder they lofted their pitchforks for Michael Crichton when he released State of Fear. He was already putting the Naomiists in the spotlight in 2004.

    Like mother, like daughter. … climate change is Naomi’s porno which her mother spent her life obsessing about.

    Funny part is that when Naomi popped one out of the oven a few years ago, even her leftoid friends wondered if she had herself artificially inseminated being indoctrinated to be repulsed by the act.

    Naomi, is the very definition of a “frigid” woman and Avi is the Cuckold of Climate Change.

    No wonder she hates life.
