The Leftist Assault On Dissent

Dem Congressmen: First Amendment Doesn’t Protect Global Warming Skeptics

"California congressmen wrote a letter to state attorney general Kamala Harris claiming the freedom of speech “is not designed to protect fraud and deceit” of the likes being spread by oil company ExxonMobil about global warming.

Nineteen Democratic lawmakers told Harris her “investigation as to whether ExxonMobil lied about the truth of climate change and misled investors does not constitute an effort to silence speech or scientific research.

“The First Amendment protects freedom of speech, but it does not protect companies from defrauding the American people or improperly disclosing information to their shareholders,” lawmakers, including California Reps. Maxine Waters and Ted Lieu, wrote to Harris.

Harris joined attorneys general from New York, Massachusetts and the U.S. Virgin Islands in investigating Exxon’s global warming stance based on reporting by liberal journalists."
Given that the AGW cause/effect connection is not empirical but is purely speculated, plus the failure of the computer speculations over the past two decades, plus historical knowledge of High CO2 without the heating deemed necessary by the speculations, the "science" of speculation is ripe for dissent. But it is also ripe for totalitarian exploitation in pursuit of global government - by the totalitarians, who else?

Actual science is not the Left's strong suit. The best science in the world is still merely contingent and never Truth as the Leftists believe. But to believe otherwise does not benefit their narrative.
