Three examples of current liberal lunacy, including killer refrigerators, coming up, so don’t say you haven’t been warned. Worse than the mind-blowing things they say is the fact that leftists actually believe the tripe they spew on a daily basis. For instance, it takes a special blinkered mindset to equate using a killer-refrigerator with that of a 40-foot truck to mow down children, an opinion one would expect to hear in the dark recesses of an insane asylum. But here are America’s so-called leaders, going beyond the credible time after time, and shrugging off the reality exploding daily around them. Maybe this is an insane asylum after all. But before we get to the killer-refrigerator quote, the Obama Administration has tried oh so hard throughout its two terms in office to persuade Americans – indeed, the entire world – that the global terrorist threat is due to everything but Islam. Various pretzel-like rationalizations have been peddled to deflect attention from the true cause. Thus, Major Nidal Hasan’s murderous rampage in 2009 that left 13 people dead at Fort Hood, Texas was termed “workplace violence.”
From Arnold Cusmariu, in today’s American Thinker:
Following the “workplace violence” description, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf infamously declared that the “root cause” of terrorism is “a lack of opportunity for jobs”:
We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s a lack of opportunity for jobs, whether we can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.
A month ago, Attorney General Lynch topped Harf in the inanity department with these pearls of wisdom:
The good in this world far outweighs the evil. Our common humanity transcends our differences, and our most effective response to terror is compassion, it’s unity and it’s love. We stand with you today because we grieve together, and long after the cameras are gone will continue to stand with you as we grow together in commitment and solidarity and in equality.
And finally, the latest silly move on the chessboard was made last week by none other than Hillary Clinton’s successor at Foggy Bottom, John Kerry, who was in Vienna, Austria to negotiate a global climate deal to phase out hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), chemicals used in air conditioning and refrigeration. HFCs are a source of greenhouse gas emissions that some scientists have alleged contribute to global warming.
According to various sources , Kerry said this:
As we were working together on the challenge of [ISIS] and terrorism, it’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we – you – are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself.
The use of hydrofluorocarbons is unfortunately growing. Already, the HFCs use in refrigerators, air conditioners, and other items are emitting an entire gigaton of carbon dioxide-equivalent pollution into the atmosphere annually. Now, if that sounds like a lot, my friends, it’s because it is. It’s the equivalent to emissions from nearly 300 coal-fired power plants every single year.
Cusmariu goes on to finish: Kerry, apparently with a straight face (botox?), is asking us to believe that commercial chemicals that allegedly contribute to global warming are morally on par with the wanton, indiscriminate murder of innocents by Islamic jihadists.
Preposterous, of course; but then, the Obama Administration has been living in an alternative reality for quite a while when it comes to terrorism. Why stop now?
Little is likely to change this week as Democrats meet in Philadelphia to anoint Clinton-Kaine — or “Kaine and Unable” as some wags have labeled the ticket. No word yet on whether Gitmo terrorists have been invited to take part in the proceedings as a gesture of “compassion” in the name of “unity” and “love.”
To set the story (and Heinz Baked Beans Kerry) straight, the hoax that was created some 25 years ago was that HFCs eat up the ozone layer at the top of the stratosphere. That’s a pretty good trick since HFCs are about 30 times heavier than air and hang low to the ground (also about 20 times heavier than CO2 – itself heavier than air and that’s why it’s used for fire extinguishers). This hoax made billions for the HVAC industry as everyone re-tooled their car AC and refrigerators to run on R134A and their home AC compressors to run on R410A.
Then there was the whopper during the ’92 campaign that NASA sent up a U-2 which spotted an ozone hole over Kennebunkport, implying it was ‘all Bush’s fault’? Yep, Kennebunkport, Maine, a major industrial center. If I recall correctly, the true motive behind the Ozone Hoax was that the patents on the existing CFC’s were set to expire and DuPont’s PR people invented a spook story to get bought-off pols to legislate new refrigerants.
These creeps will say anything and the mindless cretins in the media will repeat it. Don’t forget – it begins at the very top with the Liar-in-Thief.
And We The People keep wondering why we’re in the mess we are today.
