Tea-Bagger Education #5

Tea-Bagger Education #5

So here’s another strange personality defect present in today’s tea baggers and in the typical conservative. It’s called the Lemming trait. Of course, if’ you’re a conservative, you’ll find endless reasons why this isn’t you, regardless of the facts, but do yourself a favor and just think about it.

In the conservative (Authoritarian follower) mind set, being part of and being accepted by his group is as important as life. This makes for some of the most ridiculous behavior.

We can take examples from all around us in every day life, but we’ll just take an obvious one and leave it up to the readers (and commenters) to come up with their own examples or denials.

Example #1: News commentator Joe on one channel says there’s no such thing as global warming. Commentator Sue on another station says the same, and a third. When it is finally so obvious that temperatures are rising that no one can deny it any longer, these three commentators all come back with version two of their denial. Oh, it’s getting warmer, but not everywhere so it’s not getting warmer at all.

Your typical human with a functioning logic processor will say, hum, these people have been wrong and are now making up silly excuses why they’re not. But, everything else they say seems to make sense in my view so I’ll just ignore the inconsistencies.

Well, the next day these same commentators say, finally, oh bugger, I can’t deny it any longer so I guess we’re experiencing global warming, but the new twist is, oh, it’s not man’s fault.

Some even go so far off the tracks as to reverse themselves and say there’s still no warming just because they can find an area that is having a snow storm or because there was one flaw in the reams of evidence gathered.

Most people would quit believing commentators that are this often wrong and who refuse to adjust their positions based on evidence. But the conservative tea-bagger will just continue to follow them as if there’s nothing wrong with being wrong.

Why do conservatives continually follow those who are proven wrong so reliably? It’s because these commentators are their leaders, part of their cult or clan or group or political party. Group affiliation is more important than anything else.

Hackergate and Climate Deterioration

Hackergate and Climate Deterioration

The climate destroying corporate apologists are out there trying their hardest to make some sort of gold out of the hay they call Climategate. After all the lies about how Soros is behind the climate studies because he’s some sort of robot or how it’s a Liberal conspiracy to bring down the carbon based energy companies just out of spite and jealousy, or how maybe it’s some plan to make Americans love hippies, there is still no evidence. But that won’t stop them.

Now that they have the emails hacked from scientists, there isn’t a single bit of proof to their silly allegations. But, that won’t stop them from coming up with new lies. They act like it’s Christmas time for them because they can prove that the climate deterioration is a fraud, never mind all the obvious proof. Now with all these emails stolen, they should be able to find something, somewhere, right? Right? Hello?

There has been no evidence to show that the figures are incorrect or even inconclusive. There is some debate among the scientists, but, remember, that’s a good thing. If everyone just agrees on everything, then we’ll all be a wrong as the Republican Party has been on this issue. Wrong every time.

They did find one scary email where the data was massaged, but no evidence of any deceit or even wrong dong. And, most importantly, there is no evidence from these hacks and break-ins that the evidence is anything but conclusive.

But, we all know that the evidence proving that man is causing climate deterioration and the lack of any credible evidence to the contrary, the Conservatives and corporate apologists will continue to chant the chant, like some sick cult. Keep repeating it and sooner or later it’s bound to come true. Right? Right?

Now with new break-ins reported, will there be more issues that the Conservatives can make hay from? Probably. But it’s pretty doubtful that one to two points of data out of millions will change any of the conclusions.

But, we need to ask, who is illegally hacking into all these systems and trying to manufacture wrong-doing? And more importantly, why aren’t they in jail, yet?
