Sometimes, it’s hard to tell where America ends and California begins. What is certain, however, is that the city of Berkeley may be the capital of liberal lunacy.
Berkeley, and specifically the campus of the University of California that exists there, have been at the forefront of the delusional democratic narrative in recent years, fomenting a radicalization the likes of which we have never seen in our modern era. This was, of course, in response to the election of Donald Trump as President…an event that the liberal left was “triggered” by to the extent that they formed a “resistance”.
It’s just so adorable how these snowflakes respond to dog whistle word like “resistance”. It’s as if the democrats simply watched a whole slew of popular Hollywood movies and picked out a phrase that would resonate with this screen-addicted generation.
At Berkeley, this “resistance” schtick manifested itself as a fight against free speech, in which a number of prominent conservative speakers were either canceled or mitigated by the threat of Fascist violence from the democratic element on campus. Simply because some of these speakers shared some political ideologies with the President was enough to riot, regardless of whether or not these speakers even supported the President.
Now, as the campus attempts to massage their image in the public by staying out of the news, the democratic dunces of Berkeley are at it again, attempting to convince their colleagues that global warming is somehow akin to World War II.
This week, the Berkeley City Council issued a resolution declaring a worldwide climate emergency, calling it “the greatest crisis in history” after evoking memories of World War II.
“The United States of America has disproportionately contributed to the climate and ecological crises and to preventing a transition away from fossil fuels, and Americans thus bear an extraordinary responsibility to solve the crises,” the text reads.
Apparently the six million Jews massacred during the Second World War, not to mention the other tens of millions of casualties, do not measure up to the overarching evils of climate change—at least in the minds of the Berkeley City Council.
Droughts, famines, and diseases produced by global warming “have already killed millions of people in the Global South,” the document announces, adding that the earth is “already too hot for safety and justice.”
The nonsensical rant continued…
“The global economy’s overshoot of ecological limits and, increasingly climate change, are driving a global fresh water scarcity crisis and the sixth mass extinction of species, which could devastate much of life on earth for the next ten million years,” the resolution warns.
To read through the text, one would think that global warming has been behind every catastrophe and uprising on the planet.
Climate change “has been linked to the Syrian War, the rise of Boko Haram in Nigeria, as well as the famines, water shortages, and resulting conflict in Yemen, Somalia, and South Sudan,” the document pronounces.
Wait. Is the left trying to convince me that people in Africa are getting grumpy because it’s getting hotter outside?
I would say that these folks need to “chill out”, but I don’t want to be accused of “triggering” them.
