    AOC group wants climate change deniers silenced

    Group Wants 'Deniers' Squashed in News Stories
    ocument" about="/blogs/nb/tim-graham/2019/08/20/aoc-aligned-group-climate-deniers-squashed-news-stories">
    Reddit

    On Monday night, national radio host Mark Levin read from a frightening article by Tyler O'Neil at PJ Media headlined "AOC-Aligned Climate Group Demands Media Silence 'Climate Deniers'." A group called The Climate Mobilization which advocates for a dramatic "World War II-scale" takeover of the economy to fight global warming, condemned the media for pursuing "objectivity" by giving air time to "climate deniers."

    "Some media outlets are sacrificing the future of our planet for the sake of appearing objective," Margaret Klein Salamon, founder and executive director of The Climate Mobilization, said in a news release Saturday.

    "This idea of equating climate deniers with scientific experts is a dangerous practice which frames the threat to our planet, our existence as an ongoing debate," Klein Salamon added. "I don’t think sacrificing the future of our planet in exchange for a look of 'objectivity' is an even exchange. It’s one the coming generation will judge us on, if we don’t move with the urgency necessary to fight back against global warming and win."
    What makes this more amusing is Klein Salamon is a psychologist, not a climatologist. Her co-founder Ezra Silk has a Bachelor's Degree in History. Her advisory board includes the "former executive vice president of The Cheesecake Factory," a minister who's president of the Hip Hop Caucus and Adam McKay, the movie director who recently made the Cheney-trashing movie Vice.

    The Left warns that democracy is dying in darkness.....and then insists the planet is too important for a democratic debate on the climate. To prevent planetary death, one side has to...die in darkness. They warn of Trump's authoritarian tendencies....and then display them in their media analysis.

    Klein Salamon's group was touting a study from Nature.com that Newsweek was pushing. "The U.S. media gives climate change deniers too much prominence by placing people with little understanding of the complexities involved in the same league as top scientists, a study has found."

    "It's time to stop giving these people visibility, which can be easily spun into false authority," University of California Merced Professor Alex Petersen said in a statement. Peterson was one of three scientists who traced the digital footprints of climate deniers and scientists across 100,000 media articles for a study in Nature Communications. They discovered about half of mainstream outlets actively seek out climate change denying experts for coverage.

    "It's not just false balance; the numbers show that the media are 'balancing' experts—who represent the overwhelming majority of reputable scientists—with the views of a relative handful of non-experts," study author Professor LeRoy Westerling said in a statement. "Most of the contrarians are not scientists, and the ones who are have very thin credentials. They are not in the same league with top scientists. They aren't even in the league of the average career climate scientist."
    These professors cited a 2016 New York Times story as one example of a story they reviewed, starring then-Congressman Lamar Smith. So...Republican committee chairmen demanding documents from the climate alarmists shouldn't be a news story, since Smith was not a scientist? These authoritarians don't even want a legislative debate on their Green New Deal "solutions."
    They noted journalists often quote skeptics just to knock them down -- but even this is unacceptable! Censors have to censor:

    Research shows that journalists often quote contrarians either to infuse objectivity or to dismiss their position outright. Yet, these approaches also detract attention from the relevant CC [climate change] narrative and provide the counterproductive impression that there is something substantial in contrarian arguments to be debated.

    what she wants, her aspirations, dreams and goals are irrelevant.

    she represents a tiny fraction of America citizens, citizens that imo, do not have the best interest of the vast majority of citizens in mind...

    Further demonstrating that she is a dumbass commie.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    somebody here has a sig line that reads [or to the effect] "if you want to know who wants to control you, look at who wants to silence you"...

    progs have demonstrated daily that they want everyone who does not follow their communist party line silenced, from congress, to schools to the streets.

    many have even openly called for violence against dissenters, also from congress, schools and the streets.

    From the same people who want Climate Change deniers to Die Off!
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    Their idiot sheeple/cult followers better start waking up and NOW. These people are Fascist and totalitarians. Just because they think if they vote for them, THEY WON'T COME AFTER THEM. Well, they are getting a good damn look at them with OTHER PEOPLE at the moment.

    And how funny AOC thinks WE THE PEOPLE give a shit what she thinks and wants.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.
    For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. . The traitor is the plague."

    "They aren't even in the league of the average career climate scientist."

    Here it right here. The reason why these people don't want an honest debate is because they have a vested interest in perpetuating the hoax. It is their career and life's "work".
