As we all know, or should know by now after dealing with guy for nearly eight years now, there’s nothing Barry relishes more than an opportunity to pump young, impressionable minds full of what is nothing more than the purest form of leftist bullshit. And he always makes sure to take the fullest advantage possible when such an opportunity presents itself! And it was this past Sunday that he was provided with just that sort of opportunity when he proceeded to tell the graduates at Rutgers University, “to insist upon and shape an informed debate” about climate change, adding that climate change is not something that is subject to “political spin.”
It was while delivering one of his most recent commencement addresses that Barry took it upon himself to explain to those graduates present the threat which he views as being above all other threats we face as nation. Barry said, “Climate change is not something subject to political spin. There is evidence. There are facts. We can see it happening right now.” Barry then went on to say that the debate about climate change is “a perfect example” of astronomer Carl Sagan’s quote, “We can judge our progress by the courage of our questions and the depths of our answers, our willingness to embrace what is true rather than what feels good.”
In trying to do his best to convince these graduates that what he spoke was the truth, Barry said, “Now, I recognize it doesn’t feel like the planet is warmer right now. I understand. There was hail when I landed in Newark, but think about the climate change issue.” Barry then went on to make the claim that, “Every day, there are officials in high office with responsibilities who mock the overwhelming consensus of the world’s scientists that human activities and the release of carbon dioxide and methane and other substances are altering our climate in profound and dangerous ways.” To say that he stretched the truth a bit, is an understatement.
And it was in trying to make his point, I guess, that he made reference to Sen. James Inhofe, a Republican and also the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. It was about Sen. Inhofe that Barry said, “A while back, you may have seen a United States senator trotted out a snowball during a floor speech in the middle of winter as ‘proof’ that the world was not warming.” Now this was nothing more than the typical sophomoric wise-ass crap that we’ve come to expect from our ‘president’. And what better place to demonstrate his obvious adolescent streak than in front of those who are essentially his intellectually-challenged equals?
Barry said, “I mean, listen, climate change is not something subject to political spin. There is evidence. There are facts. We can see it happening right now. If we don’t act, if we don’t follow through on the progress we made in Paris, the progress we’ve been making here at home, your generation will feel the brunt of this catastrophe.” He added, “So it’s up to you to insist upon and shape an informed debate. Imagine if Benjamin Franklin had seen that senator with the snowball, what he would think. Imagine if your 5th grade science teacher had seen that. He’d get a D. And he’s a senator!” Not if he were a teacher of actual science.
He said, “Look, I’m not suggesting that cold analysis and hard data are ultimately more important in life than passion, or faith, or love, or loyalty.” And added, “I am suggesting that those highest expressions of our humanity can only flourish when our economy functions well, and proposed budgets add up, and our environment is protected.” Barry said, “And to accomplish those things, to make collective decisions on behalf of a common good, we have to use our heads. We have to agree that facts and evidence matter, and we got to hold our leaders and ourselves accountable to know what the heck they’re talking about.”
Barry speaks of facts and evidence as if everything is judged equally, which it is not. Because when it comes to ‘climate change’ it would seem that some facts are determined to be more scientifically accurate than others. On the subject of ‘climate change’ how many different ways can Barry make the same argument? Once again not a single fact was presented as he spewed nothing but propaganda. And his solution for global warming? To raise taxes, hurt businesses and redistribute wealth. Yup, that’ll fix it. The overwhelming number of scientists funded by the government may believe in global warming but not most other actual scientists.
And it was from ‘climate change’ that Barry then moved on to yet another favorite topic of his and one that is also very near and dear to his heart. That of course would be the topic of Muslims. Barry told the graduates that Muslims around the world are our most valued partners in the fight against “violent extremism.” He said, “Isolating or disparaging Muslims, suggesting that they should be treated differently when it comes to entering this country, that is not just a betrayal of our values. That’s not just a betrayal of who we are, it would alienate the very communities at home and abroad who are our most important partners in the fight against violent extremism.”
When it comes to Muslims I can only guess what the point might be that Barry has been trying to make. Is it that without Muslims there would be no fighting, because without the cult of Islam there would be no, or at least considerably fewer, extremists. Does he see Muslims are our partners in this continuing war in the same way that the Nazis, and the Japanese, were our partners in WWII? Right, just like the Nazis were our best allies to defeat Hitler and Kamikazes to defeat Japan. Got it? Make that moderate Nazis, I guess. Yet, there were about as many moderate Nazis then as there are moderate Muslims now. And that would be very few.
Even after watching Barry for what seems, now, like forever, to see so much hubris exhibited by so small a man, you must admit, is pretty remarkable. And it’s now gotten to the point where it’s pretty difficult to even read his words without retching and near impossible to actually have to listen to them. Government has gotten huge and intrusive. Our debt is unsustainable. The bottom line here is that the erosion of America’s Judeo Christian values and morals as well as our ethical compass, has diminished the quality of life for everybody. Which all comes under the heading of Barry’s primary purpose as president, the ‘fundamental transformation!’ of America.
