It's not like he's proposing tatooing a Mogen David [Star of David] on the foreheads of Jews


That would just be so 1930's Germany.


Surely it's time for climate-change deniers to have their opinions forcibly tattooed on their bodies.

Not necessarily on the forehead; I'm a reasonable man. Just something along their arm or across their chest so their grandchildren could say, ''Really? You were one of the ones who tried to stop the world doing something? And why exactly was that, granddad?''

We await the protestations of the guilty that the Left was not really the source of the Totalitarian Movement and the Fascists.

Indeed it is not surprising. Nor would it be easy to make a better case in support of Jonah Goldberg's Liberal Fascism. Nor is the post subject to a Godwin's law violation as the parallel is just too damn close.

I always find this debate troubling, not because it isn't interesting to identify and label all the individual species (it is), but because it allows the whole phylum to deny its own existence.

Here is how I see it. There are only two political systems: slavery and "the other kind." Slavers used to be honest about who they were until they lost the argument and a bunch of wars. Now they hide by a myriad of methods; one of which is constant name changes. Debating whether the slaver is Marxist, communist, Nazi, fascist, progressive, or whatever-the-hell-name-they-invent-next just allows them to continue to hide in plain sight.

Similarly, slavers use lots of fig leaves of other kinds - states rights, the inferiority of other races, and the opposite side of those very same issues. It turns out that the same fig leaf can be used as a shield from both sides depending on your point of view.

So, I offer a heartfelt plea -- don't let slavers hide behind their labels and slogans anymore, just call them what they are -- "Slavers."

Glover's pretending to writ... (Below threshold)
Evil Otto:

Glover's pretending to write this with a tongue-in-cheek style... he's pretending he doesn't really want to tattoo skeptics. Hell, that's not the sick part of this piece. He desires us to die for questioning climate change.

"OK, maybe the desire to see the painful, thrashing death of one's opponents is not ideal. But, my God, these people are frustrating."

Ah, but maybe he doesn't really mean that either, right? People, THIS IS THE WAY THEY THINK. One constant of the left is that there is no concept of "I disagree with what you say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it." Glover would have no problem with "deniers" dying, because he thinks we're standing in the way of the world "doing something." He's a little vague on what that "something" should be (aside from raising taxes to control behavior, but that's also a standard leftist argument, barely worth noting), but why quibble?

"Aside from the frothing fringe of the environmental movement, no one is secretly pleased about global warming. We'd all rather it just went away."

Not true. One thing I've learned about arguing with the true believers is that, despite their claims, they don't want it to go away. One would think that recent scandals and contradictory evidence would be greeted with relief that maybe the planet isn't warming, but that's not the case... the believers argue more loudly. They simply shift their language into ever more vague, harder-to-prove terminology. "Global warming" actually implies that the planet is warming and that mankind is the cause. Evidence lately calls that into question, so they smoothly shift to "climate change." It's much more difficult to refute "change," since the climate changes all the time and always has. Some in the movement have begun using "global climate chaos" recently... that's much better, because it has just the right apocalyptic edge, and is even more difficult to disprove.

This is really about control. For all their claims to the contrary, leftists HATE opposition to their ideas. Glover is frustrated that there's opposition to his beliefs, and so is lashing out in the traditional manner of the leftist... by calling for the opposition to be controlled. And if we were to die, well, he doesn't seem like the kind of person who would object in the slightest.

Next, look at this:

"Is it possible to get the politics out of the climate-change debate?"

Then this:

"The tool we'll use is a carbon tax that seeks to subtly redirect some of our choices. Cut your power bill by more than the compensation offered and you get to keep the change."

(I'm going to ignore the fact that this wouldn't actually stop climate change or even make a dent in it. It's not really the main point.)

He wants to raise taxes on certain behavior to control the choices we make and redirect them towards his desired goal. But he wants politics out of the climate-change debate. Let me translate: Do what I say and stop arguing about it. In the end, politics is debate. It is disagreement. In a world where there were no disagreement there would be no politics. Just like everything else in this column, what Glover wants is for the "deniers" to shut the hell up and let the other side do whatever the hell they want.

As the saying goes, scratch a leftist, find a fascist.

(As an aside, doesn't it seem like Glover is using "climate change" and "global warming" interchangeably? Come on, Climate Cultists, you've got to do a better job of teaching this week's current vocabulary for your ever-shifting "theory." How can you expect people like Glover to keep up if you haven't even pinned down the proper definitions of terms?)

The Truth Fairy:

As someone who listens to Richard Glover on the radio here in Sydney, can I suggest the posters here would have to be the most humourless pack of humans I've ever heard of.
The man is NOT serious about tattooing climate change deniers, for God's sake! He's a SATIRIST! Do you know what a satirist is? The piece is supposed to raise a laugh.
You prove how hard that is to do with people who have no sense of humour or proportion, zero tolerance of opposing viewpoints, and are obviously incapable of doing a little research before whipping themselves into a vitriolic lather.
I only found this page after he noted on the radio today that he's received about 2,500 death threats over the piece! He knows none of them are more than internet cranks, of course - the type the 'net is riddled with these days. The type who have the bravery of Hercules when they're typing anonymously from their bedroom.
What the comments here prove is that the true fascists are those of you who would deny him the right to poke harmless fun, but reserve the right to make death threats to someone you've never even heard of until today.
And you say HE'S the fascist??? HAH!!!!!
You Troglodytes!
You sound like a pack of slavering dogs!
Try listening to his show on the internet sometime - even closed-minded bigots like yourselves might learn something about the man you're so eager to kill over a piece of satire.

==============

That's because you pretty much missed my point. States Rights is just one of many examples (in a never-ending line) of fig leaves that slavers have used to disguise who they really are. The fact that any example is important and has high value to you (or me, or anyone else) is precisely why they will choose that example for their cover. So, States Rights are important to you. I appreciate that and agree entirely, which is why we have to be careful about how slavers will position themselves and what fig leaves they choose in the future.

For example, charity is also important to me. Slavers use it to hide. It is only that they changed the word to "entitlement" that made me figure it out. After all, if I was born with the ownership to my own life, then I have "the full right, Title and interest" to my own life. Then, how could anyone else be "entitled" to what I produce? If I have the full title, what title do they have?

To put it another way -- If we are going to have a shared nation-wide charity system, should I be part of it? Hell, yes, and everyone else should be, too. But, we should call it that. Otherwise, we are enslaving producers born, or not yet born, to pay the debts of others. If the slavers could have done so directly, they just would have taken the money. Because they lacked the political power, they ran up a debt instead. Is it just a matter of semantics? No, slavers suck and their cavalier attitudes about the ownership of individual lives has led our country to the brink of bankruptcy -- and that debt will be paid in some fashion by those they seek to enslave -- whether through confiscation, coercion, or inflation.

And, don't forget what every slaver knows -- the most productive slaves are the people who don't know they are slaves.

So, I won't call them by any other specie anymore. There are no fascists, socialists, totalitarians, communists, Nazis, Marxists, or progressives. They are all just Slavers attempting to hide in plain sight.

I actually just had a quick look at the "offending" piece.
What is your comment on this part of the item:

"Not that the other side isn't frustrating. There's a type of green zealot who appears to relish climate change. Every rise in sea levels is noted excitedly. Every cyclone is applauded and claimed as a noisy, deadly witness for their side.
Suddenly, it's as if they have the planet's assistance in their lifelong campaign to bully everyone else into accepting their view of the perfect world. One without any human beings. Except for them. Living in a cave. Wearing an unwashed T-shirt that not only says ''Support wildlife'' but actually does."

Evil Otto:

The man is NOT serious about tattooing climate change deniers, for God's sake! He's a SATIRIST! Do you know what a satirist is? The piece is supposed to raise a laugh.

Humor is subjective. Making jokes about tattooing unbelievers and (the more important part) desiring to see us die painfully is NOT FUNNY when you're on the receiving end.

Oh, I don't think Glover would do anything to accomplish the tattooing, the deaths, any of it. That would take effort. What's clear from his piece is that he wouldn't do anything to stop it. He really doesn't have a problem with the rights of "deniers" being violated, because he finds us frustrating. That is crystal clear in his piece.

You mention this:

"Not that the other side isn't frustrating. There's a type of green zealot who appears to relish climate change. Every rise in sea levels is noted excitedly. Every cyclone is applauded and claimed as a noisy, deadly witness for their side.

He doesn't mention wanting to see THEM die painfully. He doesn't want to see them tattooed. He's irritated by them, but his hate has limits because he agrees with them, just not the levels they take their arguments to.

Build a bridge, folks.

With someone who has clearly expressed his opinion that he would not mind seeing us dead because we disagree with him?

F*ck no.

Oh, right, it's supposed to be "humorous."

Ha. Ha.

G'day Otto!Firstly: ... (Below threshold)
The Truth Fairy:

G'day Otto!
Firstly: Yes, humour is subjective. So that means that anyone who makes a joke you don't like should be threatened with death? As someone looking in at you lot from the outside, that WOULD seem to be The American Way, but most of the rest of the world (sorry to shock you, but 95% of the global population is not American) subscribe to free speech in practise as well as in theory.
What happened to not agreeing with what he says but defending to the death his right to say it? Somehow, in your mostly screwed up country, a lot of people seem to have twisted that around to "I may not agree with what you say, so I defend my right to threaten you with death"

Secondly: He wouldn't try to tattoo deniers because it would take EFFORT???
It's got nothing to do with effort, Otto. It's SATIRE, mate!!! Look it up, you might even get to understand what it's about.

Lastly: When I say build a bridge, maybe there's a cultural misunderstanding between us there... what I mean by that is not "reach out to him" - I mean GET OVER IT! Life is too short to blow a valve over a joke, mate!

Honestly, you Americans are getting weirder by the decade. You do so much that's good, but your ultra-right-wing, fundamentalist, evangelistic "Christian" lunatic fringe just seems to keep getting bigger and bigger and weirder and weirder. Example? Can you point to any other country that's home to a bunch of raving mental cases that come near to rivalling the Westboro Baptist Church?

So what's next for you guys? Masters Of The Universe??

Evil Otto:

Looks like the "Truth Fairy" has issues with the USA. This really is about more that Glover's piece, isn't it? It's an opportunity for you to vent against my country. Well, let's take a look:

Firstly: Yes, humour is subjective. So that means that anyone who makes a joke you don't like should be threatened with death?

Nice strawman argument. Did I say anything of the sort? Either attack what I said or stop pretending that you care anything about "truth."

As someone looking in at you lot

"You lot?"

from the outside, that WOULD seem to be The American Way, but most of the rest of the world (sorry to shock you, but 95% of the global population is not American) subscribe to free speech in practise as well as in theory.

Most of the world does? Does that include China? The Muslim world? Europe, with its "speech codes?"

What happened to not agreeing with what he says but defending to the death his right to say it?

What happened to it? GLOVER DOESN'T BELIEVE IN IT. I pointed that out in my 7:26 post, which you didn't bother to read. It's ironic that you're here pompously lecturing us while defending a man who flat-out said that he wouldn't mind seeing people who oppose global warming dead... he just feels bad that he feels that way.

Somehow, in your mostly screwed up country,

Y'know what? I don't give a shit what you think about my country. I'll tear it apart because it's free entertainment, but other than that, your opinion is noted and dismissed.

a lot of people seem to have twisted that around to "I may not agree with what you say, so I defend my right to threaten you with death"

Spare me the self-righteous whining. I said nothing of the sort, nor has anyone else here in this blog. The fact that Glover is getting death threats means nothing, because death threats come whenever anyone on any side of a political subject says something controversial. Do you think right-wingers don't get death threats? Does that mean I can arrogantly lecture you on it?

Secondly: He wouldn't try to tattoo deniers because it would take EFFORT???

That's what I wrote. Keep in mind: I was insulting him. It's called humor, "mate." What's the matter, don't you get the joke? Don't find it funny? Maybe you should get over it.

It's got nothing to do with effort, Otto. It's SATIRE, mate!!! Look it up, you might even get to understand what it's about.

Again, Glover made his point clearly. He doesn't give a shit about my rights, since I dare to disagree with him on this issue. NOTHING in his piece said that he would stand up for my right to speak. Quite the opposite.

Lastly: When I say build a bridge, maybe there's a cultural misunderstanding between us there...

There's no misunderstanding here.

what I mean by that is not "reach out to him" - I mean GET OVER IT!

No. Part of freedom of speech (which you claim to support) is being able to speak my mind on a subject.

Life is too short to blow a valve over a joke, mate!

Again, you're not the one on the receiving end of his "joke."

Honestly, you Americans are getting weirder by the decade.

Oh, look, more ranting against the US. I never get tired of people from other countries telling us how much we suck.

You do so much that's good, but your ultra-right-wing, fundamentalist, evangelistic "Christian" lunatic fringe just seems to keep getting bigger and bigger and weirder and weirder.

Yeah, people having other opinions does make you uncomfortable...

Example? Can you point to any other country that's home to a bunch of raving mental cases that come near to rivalling the Westboro Baptist Church?

Iran. North Korea. Saudi Arabia. Except the raving mental cases are in charge of the country.

Your supposed "proof" of how insane my country is? A cult of less than a hundred people OUT OF A NATION OF MORE THAN THREE HUNDRED MILLION. And everywhere they go they are met by counter-protesters, always far more of them than Westboro Baptist Church members. They are a national joke, and yet a twit like you holds them up as some kind of evidence that we're nuts.

And the thing is, in this country, Fred Phelps has a right to say what he likes. In Australia he would be shut down under your "hate speech" laws. So the very reason you're attacking MY country is actually proof of how open and free WE are. We allow freedom of speech even for evil lunatics.

So what's next for you guys? Masters Of The Universe??

I suppose this is the part of the game where I should rant against Australia in the same way you rant against the USA.

Meh.

The truth is, I don't care. Rage against the USA all you like. We've heard it before. I've heard it before, and not just from Australians. Germans, Brazilians, Canadians, the French, the Brits, South Koreans and almost everyone else. It's the real global pass time.

Not a word do I ever hear from self-righteous fools like you about the human rights violations, the atrocities taking place in China, in the Middle East, in Africa, and all over the frikkin' globe, but America?!? Yeah, those guys are NUTS! And your "proof" is some tiny fringe-cult.

Now, is it even possible for you to stick to the subject without ranting against the USA?

I would just finish by saying the gist of what I get from the posts here is that you all have a deep hatred for someone you've never heard of before today and don't know diddlysquat about, based on a piece of humour you happen to not find funny. Put yourself in my shoes. I DO know Glover's work well. He regularly (not frequently, but regulalry) takes calls from listeners who take exception to the way he's approached a topic, and I've OFTEN heard one caller describe him as a right wing sympathiser, only to be followed 5 minutes later by someone calling him a LEFT winger based on exactly the same comment. To me, that means he steps a beautifully impartial line.
The frothing reaction from you guys only re-inforces the negative side of things we know about the States. That does NOT mean we hate you. Quite the opposite, in fact. You might not know this, but we're allies. (But don't let that get in the way of YOUR self-righteousness!)
It's clear that I'll never convince you that Glover is a satire/comedy writer, and to be honest, I'm getting too much fun out of winding you guys up to WANT to convince you now. So let's all agree - Glover was COMPLETELY SERIOUS about wanting to tattoo climate change deniers on the forehead. In fact, I heard he wants to use poisonous ink for the tattoos. He's a radical Chinese/Korean Muslim Socialist Fascist Greenie dope-smoking liberal, and he'll come and get you if you don't change your way of thinking!

That's what you wanted. You insulted people, insulted my country, and then act amused because you accomplished your goal of pissing people off.

Actually, I do. Tearing apart trolls like you is a hobby, and I enjoy it.

And there's good ole Rodney with his biting commentary again. You're so witty you must write for Robin Williams or something?

Wow... that was... well, not very funny. Are you sure you should be telling other people what's funny and what's not?

Firstly, ther's a lot more I like about the States than dislike.

I'll bet there is.

So you don't need to get all defensive, although it sounds like it's almost become a reflex reaction for you.

No, attacking my country is a reflex action for mindless idiots like you.

Nope, never have. Not particularly interested, either.

You have a lovely little atmosphere of hatred simmering away here. I hate to pollute it with an opposing opinion, so I'll bow out now.

Just as I thought, no guts. You make a bunch of random, stream-of-consciousness points unconnected by any sort of logic, toss around a few insults, and leave when called on your bullshit.

Thus far, you haven't actually countered ANYTHING I've written, "mate." Face it, Fairy, you're really not very good at this, and you know it.

But you go on living what sounds to be your light, carefree, happy life y'all!

I intend to.

I take a few lessons away from my experience here.

This should be good.

For you, satire = insult, and insult = humour. I don't agree.

Still making strawman arguments, I see.

Satire is only hurtful if you CHOOSE to take it that way. Insults are calculated to be hurtful, not clever.

Ah, is THAT what you were trying to accomplish? You certainly tried the "hurtful" part... the clever? No sign of it.

There's a world of difference, Otto! But you may not be very well attuned to the nuance.
I've also learned that right wing extremists in America really are as intolerant as right wing extremists here. I guess you're the same the world over...

You've learned that, eh? Care to argue the point?

No? Didn't think so. Far easier to call us "right wing extremists" and run for the hills.

He wouldn't mind us dying painfully, and we're the ones who have "deep hatred." (sigh) Again, Aussie, you're not the one on the receiving end of his "humor."

That would require me to lose about 60 IQ points. Hold on, I'll go get a hammer and pound my temple with it until I can be an obnoxious, America-hating leftist twit.

Is there a point to this? I'm only interested in what this turd has written in this column. Y'know, the one where he jokes about tattooing us and says he wouldn't mind seeing us die. Painfully.

To me, that means he steps a beautifully impartial line.

To me, he merely stepped in something.

The frothing reaction from you guys only re-inforces the negative side of things we know about the States.

Oh, put a sock in it. You weren't going to change your mind about us. You formed your opinion about the US long ago, and nothing you read here is going to matter one way or another. Again, I'd be impressed if you'd devote the slightest bit of your intellectual processing power ranting about the countries that oppress and murder their citizens by the thousands... by the MILLIONS. The USA? Yeah, we're a safe focus for your sneers.

That does NOT mean we hate you.

Oh, most Aussies don't hate the US.

YOU DO.

Quite the opposite, in fact. You might not know this, but we're allies. (But don't let that get in the way of YOUR self-righteousness!)

I'm more interested in your particular hate, rather than the rest of your country.

(Good God, for someone who says he's done, you do go on and on. Ah well, more fun for me.)

It's clear that I'll never convince you that Glover is a satire/comedy writer, and to be honest, I'm getting too much fun out of winding you guys up to WANT to convince you now.

In other words, you're TROLLING.

Here's the thing, "mate." I enjoy this. I love taking apart you condescending twits. Gets the blood flowing. You've failed to address my points, instead writing without rhyme or reason about whatever your barely-firing brain can focus on through the haze. You're no challenge at all.

So let's all agree - Glover was COMPLETELY SERIOUS about wanting to tattoo climate change deniers on the forehead. In fact, I heard he wants to use poisonous ink for the tattoos. He's a radical Chinese/Korean Muslim Socialist Fascist Greenie dope-smoking liberal, and he'll come and get you if you don't change your way of thinking!

All done? Was this, to you, a clever point?

Have a happy life y'all, and try and remember - we have much more in common than we have in difference.

Funny that you couldn't be bothered to act like it... instead, you devoted multiple paragraphs telling us how much we suck based on such "evidence" as Fred Phelps. And when called on it, you simply attempted to change the subject.

If a giant asteroid were found to be heading toward earth tomorrow with no way of stopping it, wouldn't you feel, EVEN A LITTLE

Do you EVER make a point that has something to do with anything relevant?

No???

No.

Thought not - hate away then!!!

OK. then.
