Michigan State Senator’s Farewell is (Climate) Conspiracy Comedy Gold

December 8, 2022

Retiring Majority Leader Mike Shirkey of the Michigan State Senate mentions climate change, in the same breath as “Child Sacrifice”. So that’s what we’re dealing with here.

Putting Democrats in charge will be a big change.

Detroit Free Press:

This portion of his speech started as a critique of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic β€” a common source of angst for Shirkey and many conservatives β€” and included misinformation about the virus that he’s shared before. But it went much further, veering into a takedown of what he described as “little ‘g’ gods” that he contends will imperil the country in ways far greater than a pandemic that killed more than one million people in the U.S.

    The fact he put his hand in fresh toilet water with nothing else having been deposited there when there’s a sink nearby that he can wash his hands in is in no way as wierd as his little g gods stuff and that’s less wierd then the fact we use drinking water to flush toilets with instead of grey water.

    “the intent of the little ‘g’ gods is to create one world government” Remember when 58,000 Americans died in the Vietnam War? There was a ‘Red Tide’ that would consume all boats, and we had to fight it even in countries we didn’t know existed a few years before. And in the middle of fighting the ‘Red Tide’ we realized that Russia and China were fighting a border war! Turns out its a big world out there, and nobody wants ‘one world government’ any more than Shirkey does.

    Do we need ‘one world government’? As long as capitalism has gone global, we’re going to need a global means to fight the inevitable piracy, since all capitalism is the attempt to make a profit by playing within the rules, of which there are none beyond the borders of countries. I think globalized capitalism is a good thing (for one thing, it brought down the cost of solar and wind power, despite the best efforts of fossil fuels), and I think capitalism works best in times of peace and security. Something must be done to ensure that. America has been ensuring that security, but we’re looking inward lately.
