Jonah Goldberg [NRO]: Osama vs. Global Warming
I love this story about Bin Laden denouncing global warming. Will he come out in favor of beheading carbon emitters? Can I get 72 virgins if I promise to weatherstrip my house? How about if I install solar panels?
Also is Bin Laden now refusing “blood money” from the climate criminals in Saudi Arabia who fund his operation?
Of course, any minute now we’re going to hear from someone — any predictions who? — that the real reason “they” hate “us” is climate change. It ain’t freedom, it ain’t American empire, or licentiousness, or Israel. All of these jihadi nutters are blowing themselves up to save the polar bear.
- Hating Israel, check
- Anti-Semitic, check
- Hating the U.S., check
- Racist, check
- Not liking American exceptionalism, check
- Blaming everything ill on the U.S., check
- Wanting to destroy capitalism, check
- Fanatic ideologue, check
- Man-made global warming nut, check
Gee, if it is not for the single-payer health care thing, people may really confuse Obama and Osama. Leftists do have a lot of the same dislikes as terrorists.
