Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and whether dissent is treasonous

From Dennis T. Avery, of Pajamas Media:

Where are the American journalists who should be covering the collapse of the man-made warming scare — the biggest hoax in human history? The public, shoveling snow amid blizzard winds, wants to know. The stock market, laboring under the threat of trillion-dollar energy taxes, urgently needs to know. Even the Columbia Journalism Review, complicit in fostering the global warming scare for 20 years, is prodding America’s mainstream media to finally do their duty.

The press in England, Australia, and even India is already breaking the story:

– “The Professor’s Amazing Climate Change Retreat,” London Daily Mail, Feb. 13. “Professor Phil Jones of East Anglia University confesses on the BBC that the world hasn’t warmed since 1995, and the Medieval Warming was perhaps warmer than today.”

– “World May Not Be Warming, Say Scientists,” Sunday Times of London, Feb. 14.

– “The Hottest Hoax in the World,” Ninad Sheth, India’s Open Magazine, Jan. 30.

– “The Great Global Warming Collapse,” Margaret Wente, Canada’s Global & Mail, Feb. 20.

Also eagerly awaiting the media confessions is that little band of hardy souls who have been telling us for years inconvenient truths about gaps in the greenhouse theory while insisting that “the science isn’t settled” by a long shot. They’ve been accused of treason, likened to Holocaust deniers, and threatened with jail and with death for telling us that the evidence didn’t stack up.

Go here to read the rest of Mr. Avery's piece.  It's worth the trip.  But speaking of accusing skeptics of treason and threatening opponents with jail and death....Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is speaking at TCU tonight.  Here's one of Kennedy's memorable quotes from the Live Earth concerts:

“Get rid of all these rotten politicians that we have in Washington D.C., who are nothing more than corporate toadies for companies like Exxon and Southern Company, these villainous companies, that consistently put their private financial interest ahead of American interests, and ahead of the interests of all humanity. This is treason. And we need to start treating them as traitors,”
If any of you are going to hear RFK Jr. tonight, please wade through this collection of con-artistry first.  The climate scam is unraveling like a knit sweater inside a cotton gin.  As best I can tell, Saint Albert, The Goracle Of Music City, Tennessee, hasn't granted an interview in about a month.  His Co-Nobelist might be going to jail.   Tonight's event at TCU might be your last chance to see a Warmist before the next artificial panic begins. 

Please thank Mr. Kennedy for waiting a couple of months before executing CEO's for treason. 

Whew, that was a close one. If the hackers had waited a few months longer to pry open the East Anglia CRU emails, could we have saved the Exxon CEO from the RFK Jr. lynch mob?
I think not.
RFK Jr. is at TCU tonight.  Bring a bullshit detector with you.

Good grief! There's so much wrong here it's hard to know where to start.
RFK Jr - Yep! He looks like a Kennedy. And is acting in the worst behavour as the rest of them (living and dead).
And since WHEN did dissent = treason? Hey, Jr, haven't you heard of the First Amendment? Or does that only apply to Leftatd elitists such as yourself. Seems to me that I kept hearing, some years back, when you'all were protesting "Bush's illegal war" in Iraq, that dissent is the highest form of patriotism. Which is it now? Can't have it both ways, even though you think you can.

Also, think on this. Once you "repeal" the Rule of Law, you leave yourself open to the Rule of Man, or the Rule of Lawlessness, as well as the Law of Unintended Consequences.

Think on these things, just a little bit, before you open your yap and further display your stupidity and ignorance.

I can't remember exactly where in Arthur C Clark's "Foundation" series, but to semi-quote, "It's a poor blaster that doesn't work in both directions."

Strange you should mention Pope Algore. He is doubtless lying low on advice of counsel. Heh.

The classic Foundation series was authored by Isaac Asimov. We can logically compare Algore to the Mule.

I have been in contact with Cedric. He continues to concern himself with my salvation, but via other channels. He is well, but is taking a breather from commenting for a while. I'll keep everyone posted.
Interesting guy, our Cedric.
