Violent Imagery Supports War on Humans


Imagine if conservatives used violent imagery of people being murdered for not agreeing with their ideas and ideological goals. The screaming would — rightly — never stop.
But exactly that kind of violent imagery is being deployed in pursuit of global warming alarmism and other environmental “war on humans” agendas, with little criticism. In this past Sunday’s New York Times, for example, a cartoon showed a “climate change denier” being murdered with an icicle.
Even worse, the “No Pressure” advertisement in support of a campaign to reduce our individual carbon output by 10 percent. It depicts the murder of school children and others who refuse to get on board. Check it out. But be warned, the images of children and others exploding are graphic and realistic.
