Agendas

Right wingers always complain that lefties “have an agenda”. Oh, fuck you. Technically, everyone has an agenda. Especially you dupes.

This is leveled at those of us who believe in climate change. Like evolutionary “propaganda“, we must ask, to what end? How dare we goose-step to the desire for a cleaner planet! How politically motivated we must be to want a world that we will recognize in 50 years! There is no “agenda” here, except for concern for the well-being of the human race.

Warming denialism is evolving. There’s the rock-dumb James Inhofe version, but now the goalposts are moving. The new version is yes, global warming is obviously occurring, but we can’t prove that we are the cause. Why so desperate to ignore the warnings of a unified scientific community? What’s your agenda, except to be fucking stupid?

This is yet one more example of anti-intellectualism from the right.  Beats me why they resent book-learnin’ so much. Are they that desperate to score political points on “the other side”?  Really, what is behind denialism? Heaven forbid anything interrupt their godly “market”. Those crafty scientists, making beaucoup bucks dishing out conspiracy!

Who are the real conspiracists?

 

About The Head Seminarian

I might be the nicest person you'll ever meet, but if you don't believe me, that is because I hate you. I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I came to remind you of this, not make it worse. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. If you have a bad memory, you will forget this. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
