Terror, Anti-Semitism, Climate Denial, Joined at Hip

October 30, 2022

Rick Wilson absolutely nails it above.

The current rise in overt anti-semitism has been part of the blowback from the split from reality that has been a primary focus of the climate denial industry for decades.

Below, ABC News report from 2010 is prime example.

Meanwhile, Fox News’ favorite “environmentalist” Michael Shellenberger traffics in misinformation about the Pelosi attack on his twitter feed.

The ploy here being, “clearly this has nothing to do with hate speech from Republicans – clearly this is just a random crazy person” -which is precisely how Stochastic Terror is supposed to work – by definition.

Rick Wilson nails it right here.

Here in the midwest, we’ve seen the same kind of tactic deployed against clean energy or anyone that dares to support it. Activist for right with think tank E&E Legal posted this on his Facebook page around the time that armed men forced their way in to the Michigan Capitol and menaced legislators. Note the “I don’t condone this at all”, with the subtext, “nice capitol you have there, be a shame if something happened to it”..

Across the Heartland, clean energy advocates, as well as local officials who want to do what’s best for their communities, have been subject to constant streams of legal, and even physical threats, in public meetings and online.

None of this should be a surprise. They were telling us all along.

  1. Michael Shellenberger traffics in misinformation about the Pelosi attack on his twitter feed? His tweet links to one of his typically well researched and well sourced Substack posts. He describes the news coverage and what neighbors and acquaintances said about the guy. He even went and visited a house where the guy lived. How is this misinformation? Can you refute anything in his substack post?

    • Brent Jensen-Schmidt Says:

      The misinformation, is the implication, that the attack was randomly caused by his condition rather than directed by unconscionable propaganda.

    • rhymeswithgoalie Says:

      Would a psychotic person have targeted Nancy Pelosi without the saturated rhetoric coming from so many media sources?

      Seriously, do you think that?

      MS highlighting the fact that dePape is bonkers seems to be a way to distract from the fact that he was motivated by GOP-approved media sources that accuse Pelosi et al (used to be Hillary Clinton) are running pedophile rings and are planning on confiscating everybody’s guns?

      The point of stochastic terrorism is to promote “lone wolves” and crazy people to do their dirty work for them, while they pretend that the vicious rhetoric that they defend has nothing to do with them.
