Now, as we all know, one of Hitler’s most notorious attributes was his racism, especially toward Jews. So in the sense that we commonly think of the Hitler Youth as a bunch of brainwashed kids fanatically supporting a racist regime, Monckton’s comparison would not really apply.
However, considering the Hitler Youth more generically (i.e. with regard to their general behavior and mindset) as a bunch of brainwashed kids fanatically supporting an evil regime built on lies that threatened the world, the comparison fits rather well.
I’m sure there are some (perhaps like these mindless young people) who really are ignorant beyond belief, having simply not taken the time to examine the facts and the shameless lack of solid evidence to support the theory of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). It might be said of them that they are not evil, just wrong (though plenty of people have performed and facilitated evil out of ignorance, so they cannot be let totally off the hook of culpability).
But those at the heart of this fraudulent hoax do not have the excuse of ignorance to hide behind. They know very well (or have no rational reason not to know) the overwhelming evidence which points to natural, cyclic climate change going back hundreds and thousands of years. They must also know how thin is their evidence is to support their contentions of man-made global warming, based on less than 10% hard science and 90% guesswork and fluff.
And whether one is on this bandwagon beating the drums to convince people to surrender their liberties and their prosperity out of ignorance, or they know full well the extent of their deception, either way an evil is being perpetrated on the people of the world.
The schemes being dreamed up by these apostles of doom are intended to take one person’s hard-earned money away from them and give it to someone else…while the middle-men line their pockets with most of it.
These schemes will make it much more difficult in the U.S. and worldwide to produce affordable energy. Our refineries and power plants will take it on the chin, and those costs will be passed along to the consumer–you and me.
This agenda will cost millions of jobs, plunging more people into poverty because they lost their jobs on the altar of a hoax.
The skyrocketing cost of energy (electricity, gasoline, etc) will cause food prices to soar, since food cannot be produced, transported or preserved without electricity and gasoline.
All of these consequences will have a devastating effect on the poorest of the people in the United States in the world. This is one of the things that makes this despicable purpose the most hypocritical: it is being pushed by people who claim to be advocates of the poor, yet they are hurting the poor more than could the indifferent wealthy.
Is it evil to perpetrate a hoax? Oh yes.
Is it evil to take something from a person that they have earned but you haven’t? Oh yes.
Is it evil to push those of us who have escaped poverty and disease back down several rungs of the ladder? Oh yeah.
Is it evil to push those who are barely ahead of poverty back down into the squalor of poverty? Oh yeah.
Is it evil to smack down those who were fighting to make it out of poverty and disease, imprisoning them in it with no hope of escape? Oh yeah!
Is it evil to do this based on the unproved fantasies of a problem that does not exist in the first place?
You’d better believe it is!
So it is that I come to this video of someone conducting an impromptu interview of Lord Monckton after he redressed these modern “Hitler Youth” for trying to silence a dissenting voice of reason.
Monckton not only defends his use of the label more than adequately, he uses the opportunity to educate the person taking the video on just a few of the pertinent facts on this issue–facts this young person likely has never heard before. He explains the tremendous harm this global warming hysteria is causing and will cause to people around the world; Monckton does it off the cuff, articulately, and very evenly.
If England ever gets to the point where people like Monckton are not welcome (not hard to conceive, these days), he’d be more than welcome here in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
