From Watts Up With That?
Essay by Eric Worrall
Apparently its OK to shake the hand of an accused narco-terrorist on the DEA’s most wanted list, but disagreeing with Kerry about climate change makes you worst than Hitler.
Biden climate czar John Kerry likens D-Day invasion to battling climate change: ‘The fight of our times’
Thousands of American and allied servicemembers died in the June 6, 1944, invasion
Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry celebrated the 79th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy by likening the historic event that resulted in the deaths of thousands of American and allied service members, and the eventual victory over the Nazi regime, to the fight against climate change.
According to a report by Recharge, Kerry made the comparison in Norway on Tuesday during an appearance at a shipping exhibition in which he was the keynote speaker.
“Today is June 6th. D-Day. One of the most singularly important moments of history,” Kerry told those in attendance. “A moment that calls to mind every single thing that defined the past half of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st century.”
“They were fighting for a set of values I would say to you are just as important today as they were then. They put their lives on the line to fight against fascism, tyranny and misinformation and the savage slaughter of innocent lives,” he said.
“Make no mistake, just as that was a fight for the future as much as anything we have ever faced, what we are seeing now is the same,” he later added.
According to the report, Kerry argued that failure to address climate change could lead to greater consequences than what the world faced in 1944 when then-German leader Adolf Hitler still controlled much of Europe.
“What is also clear right now is we can also win this fight, but it requires the same level of innovation and mobilization that was required back then by those in the greatest generation,” he said. “Today’s threat comes from all of us. It comes from the result of the things we do or avoid doing.”
Now Kerry has played the NAZI card, how can he top this? Is it possible to be worse than worse than Hitler? Or will he accuse climate skeptics of being in league with the space aliens which have been so much in the news lately? Selling out the entire human race to our new alien overlords, that would probably be worse than Hitler – and its about the only place Kerry can go, if he wants to top his NAZI hyperbole.
The real question in my mind though, does Kerry want to shake my hand?
I mean, last year Kerry shook the hand of Nicholas Maduro, Venezuela’s brutal dictator and an accused narco terrorist.
Maybe when Kerry says he thinks climate skeptics are NAZIs, maybe that is his way of saying he actually likes us? Perhaps Kerry has a thing for people he thinks are ruthless bad guys?
For the record, I think you look dashing in a suit Kerry, and I respect whatever prompted you want to get close and personal with Maduro, but just in case there is any confusion, I’m a happily married man.
