David Suzuki: A Five-Star General in the War on Humans
David Suzuki is a rock star in environmental advocacy and global warming hysteria. Thus we should not be surprised that, interviewed by Bill Moyers, he channeled his inner authoritarian, proposing that climate change skeptics be jailed en masse for a (non-existent) crime he calls "willful blindness." From The Daily Caller:
"Our politicians should be thrown in the slammer for willful blindness!" [Suzuki] asserted. "If we are in a position of being able to act, and we see something going on and we refuse to acknowledge the threat or act on it, we can be taken to court for willful blindness."
"I think that we are being willfully blind to the consequences to our children and grandchildren," Suzuki continued. "It's an intergenerational crime."
Moyers, a well-known climate alarmist, didn't push back a bit -- instead gently tabling the idea as impractical.
"The problem is, if that should happen -- if politicians were to be convicted to willful blindness to the fate of the Earth and future generations -- there would have to be mass arrests, and lots more funding for new prisons," he noted. "We're not talking about a mere handful of culprits. It's hard to know where to start."
This is the same David Suzuki who called humans "maggots" who spend their lives "defecating all over the environment."
In saner times David Suzuki would be laughed out of town. But he has spent decades spouting from the politically correct side of global warming hysteria and Green anti-humanism. So, instead, he is a five-star general in the War on Humans.
