so dependent on it that they literally have forgotten how to make an argument. Quick, argue for your environmental policies! “Uh… pollution disproportionately affects the Third World, so if you’re not a hard-core eco-nut you’re RACIST!” Argue for higher welfare spending! “Uh… women are disproportionately dependent on welfare, so if you want less of it you’re MISOGYNIST!” Etc.
Well, here’s the latest from the ACLU on President Trump (I still love saying that: PRESIDENT TRUMP!) tossing the Paris agreement over the side:
In a hypoxic tweet the ACLU ejaculated, “Pulling out of the Paris Agreement would be a massive step back for racial justice, and an assault on communities of color across the U.S.” After checking in the mirror to make sure their brows were furrowed deeply enough, they added, “Drought, hurricanes and flooding will impact every American— but climate change doesn’t affect us all equally…”
Guess who climate change disproportionately hurts, according to the ACLU. That’s right, white men! Ha, just kidding. It’s minorities. Surprise! The ACLU didn’t add, probably because it wouldn’t fit in a tweet, that global warming unfairly targets Muslim transvestites.
If you’re young enough you’ll find this hard to believe, but there was a time when not just some, but most policy debates actually involved things other than randomly-generated accusations of bigotry.
By the way, would it be bad form to gloat about the Paris thing? It would? Oh well. G L O A T.
