Professor Calls for Death Penalty for Climate Change Deniers

Timothy Birdnow — American Thinker — December 31. 2012

It is as inevitable as the rising of the sun; the Left, when thwarted in their quest for power, suggests the use of lethal force to compel those who disagree.

There is a nauseating litany of murders done by our betters in their pursuit of the Benthamite vision of “the greatest good for the most people” — which in their minds equates to collectivization and socialism. You have Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Margaret Sanger, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot. Now we can add one more name tothe list: Professor Richard Parncutt, Musicologist at Graz University in Austria.

Parncutt has issued — and later retracted after it the public outcry — a manifesto calling for the execution of prominent “Climate Change Deniers”. What is interesting is that Parncutt hates the death penalty and supports Amnesty International’s efforts to end it.

This would be a shocking thing for a college professor to do were it an isolated incident, but this call has been made a number of times in the past. For instance, an anonymous poster at the liberal website Talking Points Memo called for similar action, as did Climate Progress editor Joe Romm, who called for “deniers” to be strangled in their beds. Grist magazine writer David Roberts called for Nuremberg trials for “deniers” and NASA’s James Hansen has likewise called for similar trials.

The violent rhetoric has been ongoing — and disturbing. Liberals in the United States have repeatedly tried to blame mass shootings on talk radio for inflaming the public, yet they are strangely silent about actual calls to violence on the part of environmentalists.

    This was hashed out ad nausem on Australian sites. This is either very thin skinned skeptics or a way to keep their names in the news and on blogs for a longer time. At this point, I am considering finding a new term for myself–“climate change basher” maybe–to distance myself from the skeptics. There were a few very reasoned responses but most proceed to do exactly what they criticized warmists for: name-calling, associating warmists with the unibomber, conspiracy theories. Oh for the days when science was science. Now both sides have lost it.

      I guess I missed all the drama over the holidays. I agree. It’s really becoming crazy. And there are fanatics on both sides.
