Suzuki Madness Continues
March 10, 2012 5 Comments
David Suzuki’s descent into bigoted madness apparently continues.
His latest article, “Deny Deniers their Right to Deny!” (note his use of the exclamation mark), published March 9, 2012, on Huffington Post Canada’s website, is a prime example of his ongoing use of hysterical rhetoric against those who don’t subscribe to his version of anthropogenic (manmade) global warming.
Last December, his Christmas video message was that Santa had to move from the North Pole because of global warming – please send my foundation mo’ money.
Rex Murphy had this to say about the video, “What the Suzuki Foundation is doing is sending out a scare notice to children everywhere that Christmas is in jeopardy, Saint Nick adrift and lost, making the fate of both of them dependent on giving to the cause. I’m not saying what the Suzuki Foundation is doing is immoral. I will say they have given new life and vigour to the word “tacky.” Scaring kids and guilting parents is monumentally tacky.”
Prior to that, in 2008, Suzuki had “dropped a bombshell while addressing an audience at McGill University. He urged students to seek ways to incarcerate elected officials who are ‘committing a criminal act by ignoring science.’ (Source – John Martin, Special to The Province, Wednesday, February 13, 2008.)
Yes, he actually urged students to find ways to incarcerate elected officials who share a different scientific viewpoint than his.
Now, he apparently believes those who don’t believe in his version should be denied the right to speak?
Who in their right mind would ever follow anyone with such beliefs? Surely no self-respecting scientist would subscribe to this kind of claptrap.
So, the next time you’re thinking about the “nature of things,” remember, those who are afraid to have others express beliefs differing from their own, and incite animosity, are nothing less than bigots. Those who would advocate imprisoning those with differing views from theirs are, be definition, tyrants.
And, those who would use Santa’s image to elicit donations to, what from the outside appears to be, a bigoted tyrannical ideologue’s foundation…hover just below those who would actually make contributions in support of such ideology.
Given the latest Google ranking of the Suzuki Foundation website (ranked 8,556th in Canada), personally, I dismiss his latest missive as nothing more than a blatant publicity stunt with a headline designed to attract like minded readers, somewhat akin to fruit flies to bananas past their best before date.
In that regard, I can hardly wait for his next tirade….perhaps when his site/popularity slips to 10,000th?
PS – From Wikipedia – “A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one exhibiting intolerance, and animosity toward those of differing beliefs.”
