Newest Outrage: Black Lives Matter Claims Climate Change... is Racist?
Yes, that's right. Climate change is racist. What, you didn't know? You're a racist. How do you un-racist yourself? Do all the global-warming, climate changey things. Like driving wimpy cares and carrying tote bags. While bragging about how much you care. Nothing counts unless you brag about the feels. Easy-peasy. Oh, but why is it "racist"? Read more below.
Well, not climate change is racist so much as people not buying into the leftist propaganda acting on climate change is racist. You probably already guessed that. You people who haven't bought the wimpy car? You're a racist. Still using PLASTIC BAGS? You're lynching black people. That is why Black Lives Matter shut down an airport, because of people like you and me (see University of Colorado Actually BANS Students From Questioning Climate Change… and TYRANNY: California Now Wants to Outlaw ‘Climate Change Dissent’…).
This morning London City airport was shut down. This was a Black Lives Matter action. Since then our phones have been ringing constantly, with requests to explain, and comment on the action.
“But how is this in any way linked to the last action on 5 August? Aren’t you moving away from the original narrative of deaths in police custody?” we’re being asked.
The aim of that last action, when BLMUK shut down major traffic arteries in Birmingham, London, Manchester and Nottingham, was to re-centre the conversation around black lives, here in the UK. In a video we released two days before the action, figures such as Marcia Rigg, whose brother Sean Rigg died in police custody in 2008, spokespeople from Movement For Justice and others laid out our message for the world to hear. And it was clear that in police custody, in prisons, in employment, in education and on our streets racial inequality is alive and kicking in Britain.
Today we are saying that the climate crisis is a racist crisis. On the one hand Britain is the biggest contributor per capita to global temperature change. It is also one of the least vulnerable to the effects of climate change. On the other hand, seven of the 10 countries most vulnerable to climate change are in sub-Saharan Africa.
Wait... is geography racist?
Um. I'm sure this will make me doubly-racist, but if worldly climate change sweating affects sub-Saharan Africa more than Britain, wouldn't that make climate global warming differences a geographical problem rather than a racist one? I hate to be the mincer of words, but... where countries are... on the globe?
If, say, sub-Saharan Africa were inhabited by mostly white people, would denying altering warms of climates be racist? What about if sub-Saharan Africa was inhabited with mostly Christians? Still racist? Even if the entire region was made up of Christian bakers who didn't want to bake rainbow cakes? Would anyone still call the change warming climate global deniers of racism?
Of course not. Because where a country is located on the map is not racist. Who inhabits those countries on a map is not racism. Weather patterns in certain areas of the globe are not racist. Ergo, a climate change of global proportions, man-made or natural? NOT RACIST.
Yet BlackLivesMatter wrote some TWEETS!
The UK is the biggest per-capita contributor to temperature change & among the least vulnerable to its affects. https://t.co/Bb5SmKWyt6— #BlackLivesMatterUK (@#BlackLivesMatterUK) 1473145178.0
On the plus side, Black Lives Matter activists making themselves look even stupider than they already did? New milestone. Great job, my lovelies. Great job. No, it's not racist for me to write condescendingly toward you. That's called being "condescending," not racism. See, just did it again. Patronizing would also work here.
Even if global changing climates of hot hots was real (which it isn't) I'd still be writing about how embarrassingly stupid it is to call something supposedly happening to different areas of the planet, "racist." But hey. Humor. Thanks for that, Black Lives Matter. You're not always funny, but when you are, you global it.
We here at LwC are setting the over/under for when BLM tries to pull off this level of retarded in America. If they do, we're ready. Revving the hybrid engines and all that.
