Behold an ancient religion


In a special “Meet the Press” episode dedicated to global warming, NBC’s Chuck Todd said he wouldn’t indulge anyone who ignored the facts. The host delivered the message on his Sunday broadcast, which opened with footage of the destruction bred by fires and flooding. “We’re not going to give time to climate deniers,” Todd said. “The science is settled even if political opinion is not.”

“We’re not going to debate climate change, the existence of it. The Earth is getting hotter and human activity is a major cause. Period.” Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose interview was hyped well before the program aired, cautioned that any 2020 candidate for the Oval Office “better darn well have a plan” to tackle the environment.

Don’t try to frighten us with your sorcerer’s ways, Chuck Todd. Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you clairvoyance enough to find the rebels’ hidden fortress.

CO2 is the superest thing on the planet, since it is 0.00038 of air but has magic powers.

    “Is the social justice movement that’s sweeping British and American universities a secular religion? The core beliefs of the members of this cult certainly seem to play the same psychological role as the central tenets of the world’s major religions. They furnish their adherents with rituals and blasphemy laws, a way of distinguishing between the sacred and the profane, a vision of what it is to be a good person and live in a good society, and they enable them to engage in tribal sorting, dividing people between members of the in-group and the out-group. No doubt the same could be said of most political ideologies, but there’s one aspect of left-wing identity politics in which it reveals itself as more cult-like than other belief systems. I’m thinking of its magical component.

    . . . What’s distinctive about members of the social justice left is not that they don’t believe in magic — they clearly do — but that the supernatural forces that govern their universe are all malevolent. Theirs is a religion bereft of a divine being. There are only white Devils.”
