Radical Environmental Islamic Global Warmists and Theological Secularism

STEWART: There is a type of theological secularism when it comes to the global warmists in this country. That’s what [Santorum] was referring to. He was referring to the president’s policies in terms of the radical Islamic policies the president has, specifically in terms of the energy exploration.

GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s press secretary Alice Stewart came under fire Monday for her comments accusing President Barack Obama of having “radical Islamic policies.” The spokesperson misspoke in an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, but in a way that reveals the bigoted mindset of Santorum’s sanctimonious supporters. Stewart later said she meant to say “radical environmental policies,” but “Islamic” came out instead.

You have to admire the phrase “theological secularism,” for sheer inanity. Here is a presidential campaign which is largely driven by religious bigotry and hatred criticizing the environmental movement for allegedly sharing the shortcomings of religion (e.g. ignorance and resistance to facts and logic).

In reality, climate science is accepted worldwide. It’s only a few well-funded corporate front groups like the Heartland Institute that are trying to deny that climate change is happening. Oh, and all the GOP presidential candidates are denialists too.

As always, we can only wish our “drill baby drill” President was half the environmentalist that right-wingers think he is.

    Shouldn’t MSNBC be doing a little more research on where guests on the Alan Greenspan’s wife show get their schoolin’. I’d bet you dimes for dollars this gal got her creds at a Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson or Oral Roberts institution. We really don’t need to be exposed to any of this, even if it’s for the sake of entertainment. MSNBC doesn’t need to compete with Fox “news” for phony debate or offset decent shows like Maddow with nonsense.

    Heartland is just another word to watch out for when trying to make sense of fake organizations, along with institute, solutions, balance, Americans-for, citizens-for, freedom, liberty, family, and so many other positive sounding words that have been bastardized for money.

    If I want to play word games, I’ll buy Scrabble.

    It’s been said propaganda and lies can be catapulted half way round the world before truth sets foot out the door.

    And it seems like such a GRAND bandwagon till you realize it’s all paid for by two or three rich merchants.

    I don’t think Olbermann would have given this lady or the Santorum (asprin between the knees) funder a forum. MSNBC can do better.

    Peter Griffin – “So you’re saying we need to invade Iran?”

    Why shouldn’t we invade Iran? Bulls in China shops always succeed; don’t they?

    I wonder what happened to that bull.
