Breitbart Climate Change Denial Article References Infamous Nazi Slogan

Climate change denial headline echoes Third Reich propaganda

Yesterday I came across this tweet by science journalist Kelsey Kennedy:

The article is by Breitbart’s resident climate change denying clown, James Delingpole, one of those British conservatives American right wing knuckle-draggers love because their accent makes them sound so smart!

While Delingpole’s headline itself is outrageous enough, I had a disquieting feeling I’d seen this phrase somewhere before. So I did a quick Google search — and sure enough, it turns out to be a paraphrase of a slogan used by Nazi leaders, including the infamous Hermann Göring:

I’d always heard it as, “when I hear the word culture, I reach for my gun.” But as the Wikipedia article cited above points out, the original phrase actually referred to a Browning — the same as Delingpole’s headline. It seems unlikely (to say the least) that this is mere coincidence.

Delingpole specializes in this kind of incitement against climate scientists; for example, he once authored a piece for Breitbart calling for the execution of climate scientists.

The article itself is the usual misleading tripe that’s standard fare for Breitbart “News,” a rant about the so-called uselessness of peer review (the evaluation of scientific work by other scientists in the same field).

Delingpole quotes another infamous climate change “skeptic,” Canadian journalist Donna Laframboise, who actually has an ironically apt dedicated page at SkepticalScience, the website that debunks climate change denial arguments: Global warming skeptic: Donna Laframboise.

There are no peer-reviewed climate papers by Donna Laframboise that meet this definition.

So Breitbart’s James Delingpole is quoting a writer who bashes peer review, but has never actually written a peer-reviewed paper herself. Par for the Breitbart course.

I just have a complete lack of understanding of these people. I mean, if you don’t use empirical observation and testing to determine what is and isn’t true, and if you deny the results from it when you don’t like them, how do you know ANYTHING?

I don’t get it. I never will get it.

This isn’t just confirmation bias. This is outright denial of and rebellion against one of the best things to come out of the Western Civilization that they claim to hold so dear.

I hear from Believers trying to argue me out of atheism that ‘If you don’t believe in something, you’ll believe anything!’, but really, it seems quite the reverse - If you believe in one thing against all evidence, you’ll believe anything despite all evidence.

Do you put a boiled egg in it? My wife taught me that trick, and I now always put a couple of boiled eggs in the middle…and use a veal, beef, pork combo for the meat. Damn…now I need to make a meatloaf. Having rib-eye tonight, but will surprise my wife with a meatloaf early next week.

Raw egg, yes. Boiled egg, no. But I’ve seen it done.

Mom’s meatloaf was classic 3-meat combo as you’ve described. This one was 2 parts 80:20 to one part mild Italian sausage, plus the usual breadcrumbs and eggs and seasonings. I’m thinking of going more Louisiana on the spicing next time. The boys may object, but fuck ‘em - let ‘em make their own, if they don’t like it!

Try using some classic flat rolled Quaker Oats ground up a bit to go along with the breadcrumbs. Also, I toss in flax seed as they also are a binder and you can use less egg. The oats and flax seed help make it a tad bit more healthy and I think the oats take on the texture of the meats.

I had to mix this one a lot. I kept seeing a patch of concentrated spices reappearing. Next time, I use the old sausagemaker’s trick - mix your spiced into the wet ingredients first, then add them.

CHARLESTON, w.va. (WSAZ) — The Governor’s Office said Tuesday in a statement it is reviewing contracts with Clay Development Corporation after a racist Facebook post by its director.

According to the statement, the corporation is not a state entity.

The Governor’s Office said “The State of West Virginia vehemently opposes any discriminatory and harassing sentiments, language or actions.”

The Facebook post about First-Lady Michelle Obama gained worldwide attention and controversy in November.

According to the statement, a letter was sent to the Clay Development Center’s board on December 7 requesting guarantees that neither Taylor, nor any other employee, has acted in a discriminatory manner in providing services.

The Governor’s Office has also requested copies of the Corporation’s affirmative action plan and anti-discrimination polices and practices, along with how employees have been trained on those policies.

The office says they are currently waiting for a response from the Clay Development Corporation.

I have a gastrointestinal compatibility issue with oats.

Oats give me truly astonishing flatulence. I mean, one bowl of steel-cut oatmeal and (sometime later) I’m ripping ginormous farts for hours. It’s entertaining for everyone else, the first time it happens.

It’s been evident for a long time. Big money conservative Republicans do not want to pay for any taxes that go to any social programs. They have felt they carry too many “lazy” people for a long time and they have been looking for a way to put an end to that since, well The New Deal/Roosevelt times.

With Trump they most likely see a way to put a stop to it now.

I’d like to stop paying taxes to pay for career politicians like Paul Ryan and Mitt McConnell, their agents in the government. As far as I am concerned they too are lazy and on welfare.

They also figure they can get people like the police to protect them from the hordes when shit hits the fan.

This is the problem I have. I have yet to meet a Libertarian or Randian who can be honest about what the data show about economics. I’d LOVE, just once, to meet one who can admit that, yes, unregulated capitalism is not really self-policing, and generally leads to exploitation by the rich of everyone else, and that yes, generally most people will be worse off under it, but that they feel economic freedom is more important than a system that works for all.

I could at least see that as a rational position. Instead, you get these unicorn fart fairy tales about the Invisible Hand of the Free Market, that would make everyone rich beyond their wildest dreams, if only we stopped preventing companies from screwing workers, consumers, and the environment.

I will look at it later, but I guarantee you no more than 1/3 of the population will buy that. It doesn’t matter that California, NY, and Germany are proof.

Blind Frog Belly White  Dec 13, 2016 • 1:20:44pm

I’ve been thinking about the Electoral College, especially with all the discussions of trying to get Electors to reject Trump.

Of course, the GOP and the least populous states love it, because it gives the former an advantage and makes the latter feel all big and important. So, they’re never going to vote to abolish it.

Unless……

It’s clear that the guys who wrote the Constitution didn’t intend for the Electors to merely rubberstamp the popular vote. There would be no reason for them to meet and vote, if all they were ever to do was to was pass along their state’s wishes. They were to be men of good character and judgement who would weigh their state’s choice against that judgement. I mean, historians defending the EC will say, “What if some disqualifying thing becomes known between the election and the EC vote?”

It is argued - correctly, I think - that if enough Electors voted contrary to their pledges to change the result, that it would cause a Constitutional crisis. Probably violence, if they went for HRC. But it would be hard to cogently argue that it went against what the Founders intended.

But you can just dambetcha that the Electoral College would be abolished.

No, probably not. Cuts down on the death threats. Not saying anything about not voting for Trump would be the smartest play if they really wanted not to elect him.

Medical bills are piling up and I am feeling completely overwhelmed. And it’s only Tuesday. How go things among the lizardfolk?

Please excuse my awful grammar, as I was falling asleep as I typed it. Way too many negatives in that sentence. As for the Trump and Co, without a department head, they don’t really have a mechanism to execute policy directives . He’d be undone by the bureaucracy. The biggest problem I think would be the lack of advocate for the organization for budgeting, but usually the acting head is a long term employee who actually knows wtf they are doing.

As I typed that I thought about the deluded number of people in government who vote Republican and are too shortsighted to NOT work themselves out of employment. Never mind, can anyone show me where I left my bottle of whiskey?

Clevelanders hate the jokes about the river. To wit, TBS got REAMED during the Indians-Blue Jays series when they superimposed the Indians on a wide shot of a river fire (last year in Russia) with the caption, “Welcome to Cleveland.” (I’m ambivalent to them, partly because I was born in 1981, and because the fire led to the Clean Water Act and the EPA… but it’s STILL a sore spot among many here.)

One other note: in 1996, their AA affiliate in Akron almost renamed themselves the Akron Blast after Judith Resnik. After the public response saw that “Blast” was a bad idea, they quickly became the Aeros. (Now they are the Akron RubberDucks.)

The team (thankfully) has nothing to do with this disaster of a contest.

Chief Wahoo was officially relegated to secondary logo status back in March (the red block C, believe it or not, is the primary logo) and Commissioner Rob Manfred has hinted at asking the team to retire Wahoo altogether.

I’m fine with retiring Chief Wahoo, but these options submitted by fans absolutely stink.

Is Putin thinking he can cut some kind of a deal with Trump that is going to help Russia out of its economic doldrums? And on the flip side, is Trump thinking a deal with Putin will end the split between the two countries and he will be seen as a hero for bringing the two countries together. Also, if there is a Russia and US alliance does Trump think that boxes China in and lessens them economically as far as trade and power?

And if cuts a deal, will it lead to Russia applying pressure on Syrian and change the landscape in the Middle East?
