According to Heather Smith for SIERRA, The national magazine of the Sierra Club, “People who don’t believe that climate change is real are more likely to be old, more likely to be Republican, and more likely to be white.”
So you’re saying the smartest group among us don’t necessarily believe in all of this climate change mumbo jumbo?
Makes sense to me so far.
“They [the old, white, conservatives] are also more likely to have racist beliefs, according to a recent study published in the journal ‘Environmental Politics.’”
“Environmental Politics.” Now there’s a liberal rag of a magazine if ever I heard of one!
I take it they’re just assuming the racist part because we’re talking about white conservatives here.
I doubt they asked people in the study if they were racists or not.
Ms. Smith goes on to say, “This correlation is a relatively recent phenomenon—one that occurred in the wake of Barack Obama’s election in 2008.”
Oh, okay…, now I’m starting to get where this is going.
“The paper hypothesizes that, however moderate his actions, the mere existence of our first African American president dropping climate change into the State of the Union Address and joining the Paris climate accord correlates with a significant number of white Americans deciding that they were done believing in climate change.”
“This correlation has also been documented with regard to health-care reform—after the Obama administration made it a priority, a subset of white Americans who had supported the issue during the Clinton administration suddenly switched their position.”
This last claim is just a plain fabrication. Not many people supported government run health care at all during the Clinton years. That’s why they failed to implement it. ObamaCare was actually signed into law. I don’t think their argument stands up here.
Their racist claims regarding President Obama and climate change are way off base as well.
When are these liberals going to understand that conservatives didn’t care about the color of Obama’s skin…, it was HIS policies, and HIS racism that turned conservatives off.
“Political messaging with racist over- and undertones has been deployed relentlessly by some politicians because appealing to prejudice and paranoia really does motivate racist, paranoid people to show up and vote.”
Now there something we can all agree on!
Except they’re referring to Republicans and I’m thinking about the Democrats!
These crazy “studies” are about as valuable as their polling numbers!
But accuracy was never their goal in the first place.
It was the liberal messaging that was the most important thing. It was only a means to an end. Some hogwash to back up a failed narrative.
