Warmist fundamentalists ban dissent
Thomas Lifson

 
 

First the Los Angeles Times, and now the popular website Reddit have banned critical comments on global warming orthodoxy in responses to their articles. Giuseppe Macri of The Daily Caller reports:


A content editor on Reddit's science forum wrote Monday that the site has banned climate-change skeptics, and asks why more news outlets haven't done the same.

"About a year ago, we moderators became increasingly stringent with deniers," Reddit content editor Nathan Allenwrote in grist. "When a potentially controversial submission was posted, a warning would be issued stating the rules for comments (most importantly that your comment isn't a conspiracy theory) and advising that further violations of the rules could result in the commenter being banned from the forum."



Allen explained further:




When 97 percent of climate scientists agree that man is changing the climate, we would hope the comments would at least acknowledge if not reflect such widespread consensus. Since that was not the case, we needed more than just an ad hoc approach to correct the situation.



Oddly enough, real science is based on questioning of data and conclusions, not on consensus.



This is a clear sign of panic.

Wonder how they will report this one???

Michael Mann forced into a “do-over” in Mann -vs- CEI & Steyn

What a great Christmas present for Mike. It is back to square one for him with his lawsuit over what he views as libel by Mark Steyn and CEI.

Can't imagine why anyone would be surprised by this. Leftists always ban dissent of any kind. Go to any college campus and try to talk about abortion, Christianity, or homosexuality. First they will shut you down, then they will have you arrested, and if they could those people would freakin' kill you. Sieg Heil!
 
It is not that your opinion affects them in any way, it is merely that it 'exists' that drives them crazy and drives them to violence. They cannot stand the very idea that anyone would think differenly than them or disagree with them. It makes them froth at the mouth with hate.
 
The best outcome of the Duck Dynasty episode was that it exposed in a clear and open way, exactly how extremely 'intolerant' the so called tolerant Left is.
 
 in·tol·er·ant  inˈtälərənt/  adjective      1.   not tolerant of views, beliefs, or behavior that differ from one's own.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

The Climate Change Inquisition.....
"Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future."

Ronald Reagan
