Alt-Left Insanity: The Founding Fathers Would Fight Climate Change

Post by Riddick » 07-07-2018 01:33 AM

Fun fact: When he wasn’t bedding his slaves, “purchasing” Louisiana and warring against peaceful Muslim trading ships, Thomas Jefferson was a proto-environmentalist. So were the other Founding Male-Identifying Parents. Joe Romm, at ThinkProgress tells us so.

Romm’s article is a real treat -- hysterical in both senses of the word. It's also, of course, a stick to beat Donald Trump with. In fact, according to the headline, Trump “is destroying what July 4th stands for.” Is he reuniting the nation with Great Britain? Endorsing taxation without representation? Quartering troops in our homes? Taxing stamps?

No, he’s overseeing “the most anti-science and anti-truth administration in U.S. history.” Worst of all, his “most consequential assault on science and America’s founding principles, Trump abandoned the Paris climate deal, whereby 190 nations had unanimously banded together to save themselves (and us) from catastrophic climate change.”

Got it, Romm is upset about the U.S. dumping a meaningless document that -- if it did anything at all -- would hobble our economy while letting China adjust it’s pollution from “pea soup-thick” to “Jello-thick.” That’s his problem. What does it have to do with the Founding? Well, “the Declaration’s drafters were undeniably men of science, devoted to the truth.” Undeniably. So? So they “saw preserving the environmental [sic] for future generations as a core principle.”

Here’s his real evidence that the Framers were all about recycling and carbon credits and banning plastic straws:
  • The key question for Jefferson was very simple: Must later generations “consider the preceding generation as having had a right to eat up the whole soil of their country, in the course of a life?” Soil was an obvious focal point for examining the issue of intergenerational equity for a Virginia planter like Jefferson.

    The answer to Jefferson was another self-evident truth: “Every one will say no; that the soil is the gift of God to the living, as much as it had been to the deceased generation.”
That’s it. Jefferson believed in stewardship, and opposed heedless destruction of resources. So do I. So does everybody. It's a heckuva long stretch to get from there to making climate change the meaning of Independence Day, let alone to charge Trump with destrying it.

Jefferson et al faced real crises with very real consequences. Being men of fortitude and faith, I doubt they’d wet themselves over climate change. Being men of science, they might just lose their wigs over “scientific consensus.”

"warring against peaceful Muslim trading ships" !?

Any body ever hear of the Barbary Pirates? They where anything But, sweet peaceful, Muslims and a curse to shipping by sea, in the 1700s and way before and currently, with the same tatics as the modern day ISIS.

A lot of you have really watched too many ole pirate movies, swash buckeling, and romantic . Those movies came from the same Hollywood of today a, mind ripping, propaganda machine. It is Not unusual for the majority of people, the only touch of history they have is in the "movies" ! Wow! So easy to "Mess" with the human, mind.!

Even moreso when there's no mind to mess with: Early US presidents waging war against innocent seafaring Muslim merchants? YEAH! Far out Lefties will love it! F*ck The Founding Fathers! What this country needs is a big screen high colonic.

Watch for the blockbuster documentary written by Rob Reiner and directed by Michael Moore: "TRUMPBEARD: Nazi Raiders Of The Open Seas, Then To Now," direct from Hollywood and the "Hate America First" crowd, at a theater near you

Wow! Thank you both for your finds and personal insights so true! President Thomas Jefferson's US Navy and it's brave First US Marines ruled the day and years afterwards shutting down Muslim piracy on the High Seas.

Let's all guess POTUS detractor/badactor Robert de Niro will have the leading part as TRUMPBEARD! :P

A UN official proposes an Ark to insure against the present and future weather ravages of climate change. Well not really an Ark but it's these uncertain cc times we are in for one that now compare to the story in the Bible. It compares us to all the sin'in folks back in ancient times who paid no attention to warnings about "The Flood" to come! :oops:
