Got this message yesterday from a very concerned climate change alarmist:
Hi Matt, I read you sometimes but I generally find you to be an assh*le. Just being honest. I also think you have a reputation (or you’d like to think you have a reputation) as someone who isn’t afraid to “tell it like it is,” but I think you haven’t earned that. Actually you are very afraid to challenge any republican talking point so you stick to the script on everything. I guess it’s more important to be invited to the parties than to tell the truth.
I’m wondering if you have the guts to address something and actually force your right wing readers to think for themselves. I’m getting really tired of seeing these idiots on Facebook who every time it gets cold or snows start gloating about how it “proves” there is no climate change. You’ve never outed yourself as a climate denier, and I know you like to consider yourself a logical person, so I’m hoping this is one area where you differ from your cohorts. These morons need to be put in their place. Colder temperatures and blizzards ARE CONSISTENT WITH THE SCIENTIFIC MODEL FOR CLIMATE CHANGE. This is why I could never be a republican. I can’t be a part of a group of anti-science climate deniers who would kill this planet if they were given free reign. Prove you’re really “controversial,” Matt, and call your people to task here.
I agree with you. Honestly, I never addressed it because I never knew it was such a pervasive problem. But now that you’ve called my attention to it, allow me to be the first to say that climate deniers are lunatics. I’ll take it a step further than you even did, JM, and submit that climate deniers should be banned from teaching, voted out of office, and probably fired from any other job they might hold. Seriously, I can’t hardly believe that anyone could be so foolish and so delusional as to be a climate denier.
I mean, to deny the existence of the climate? That’s madness. The word “climate” means “the composite or generally prevailing weather conditions of a region.” The word “deny” means “to refuse to recognize or acknowledge; disown; disavow; repudiate.” Anyone who rejects or repudiates the existence of weather conditions ought to be scolded and shunned and possibly institutionalized. We all must stand up against these menaces!
Luckily, upon closer inspection, I see that no such view actually exists anywhere in our society. This is just a label you people fabricated because left wing environmentalists are reflexively disingenuous about everything….

It started with a complaint about a shoplifter, but it ended with an act of kindness. A London police officer took it upon himself to help a suspected shoplifter after realizing the man was in a difficult situation…. Roby was called to the Kroger on North Main Street in London on Saturday, Jan. 17 after a loss prevention officer stopped a man who was shoplifting. The suspect was a single father who had fallen on hard times, Roby said. The man was caught stealing baby formula for his six-month-old son, who was with him at the time. The store’s loss prevention officer told Roby he did not want to press charges, and Roby agreed…. But what Roby did next showed the shoplifter what it truly means ‘to protect and serve’ one’s community. He bought some formula himself, giving it to the man for his baby…. Roby also gave the man a message, saying he told the man there are a lot of people and organizations – including the police department – that are available to help those in need….

Blogger Matt Walsh responds to a letter from a climate alarmist asking Matt to “prove” he’s “controversial” and a “logical” person by calling “climate deniers” to task… A really fun read, Matt makes the letter writer look almost as silly as all the failed climate models.

“The search is on for two men who broke into an apartment with two University of Central Florida students inside…. Nour Skargee and his girlfriend Sable Nehme were both home when an unexpected visitor arrived on their doorstep…. Skargee says his girlfriend was in the back bedroom when he went to the front door and looked through the peephole. He described seeing a man with his head down on his doorstep…. As Skargee reached to unlock the door, he says the man forced his way in and brandished a firearm…. The suspect forced Skargee to the ground as a second man entered his apartment. Skargee says his thoughts immediately went to his girlfriend who was in the back room…. Nehme slammed the bedroom door shut and locked the door. That’s when one of the gunmen looked down at Skargee and threatened their lives…. Nehme ran to the closet in the back of her room, and removed a handgun from the top shelf of her closet. Within seconds, the gunman kicked down her bedroom door and stood face to face with Nehme…. The two men ran out of the apartment…. Nehme said the gun was a gift from her father. He told her she should always keep it with her for safety’s sake….”

“New Hope City Council members were in the middle of a routine meeting on Monday night when suddenly a barrage of gunshots left them scrambling for cover.Two police officers were hit by gunfire and one suspect was shot and killed during the shooting…. One of the council members, however, was armed and seemingly prepared to defend his colleagues and other attendees at the meeting in the Minneapolis suburb…. City Council member John Elder, who also works as public information officer of the Minneapolis Police Department, reportedly drew his firearm and ordered everyone to get down as he trained his across the room in anticipation of any threat….” [The council member didn’t have to use his gun, but that’s not the point. The fact is, he was prepared. And if the gunman had happened to go after the council members, there’s a really good chance that they wouldn’t have been sitting ducks, because one had the wisdom to be prepared to defend himself and those around him.]

Oswego Police arrested two male subjects at Chicago and Garfield for unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. One of the subjects was en route to deliver a pizza to a local residence at the time of arrest. Seeing that the large pizza sitting in the passenger seat had no means of reaching its destination, an officer delivered the pizza to the specified address on the receipt attached. A confused resident accepted the pizza, and was very glad that the police were there to deliver the pizza, rather than talk to them.

The text below is from an email I received the other day (with a couple minor edits of my own). I don’t know who wrote this originally, but it makes a great point. You really have to wonder why the Obama administration, and why lots of leftists (who some mislabel as “liberal” or “progressive”), are so afraid of calling terrorist attacks committed by Muslims (i.e. the vast majority of terrorist attacks) “Islamic Terrorism”.
