This time, according to pseudo-scientist, Bill Nye, old people are to blame for a “lack of progress” regarding “climate change”, and we’re all going to be better off when they’re dead and gone.
“Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It’s generational.”, claims Mr. Nye. “So we’re just going to have to wait for those people to ‘age out’ as they say. ‘Age out’ is a euphemism for ‘die.’ But it’ll happen, I guarantee you — that’ll happen.”
The implication is that older people are somehow stupid and unable to “see the light”; unlike enlightened individuals such as himself and the rest of the younger generation he claims to speak for. Even worse, other liberals are claiming the older generation simply doesn’t care about the future, because they won’t be around to suffer the consequences.
A video clip produced by the leftist comedy website Funny or Die uses older liberals as props to make sarcastic statements about how climate change isn’t their generation’s problem, and how they couldn’t care less about what happens to the rest of us in the future.
Of course, such a silly statement flies in the face of the most basic logic. The younger generation wouldn’t even exist if the older generation didn’t want to have children to love and care for. From cradle to college, children are a financial sacrifice like none other. We’re to believe the older generation brought life to the younger generation and spent their lives raising them and providing for them because they don’t care what happens to them?
It’s amazing that Bill Nye, a “safe space” social justice warrior that claims to care about the feelings of others, can slander an entire generation of people without batting an eye, or a hint of objection from the leftist media that cheers him on. Imagine the outrage if a conservative leader made the claim we’d all be better off once all the black people die, or all the feminists, or even just all the SJW’s?
While it is true that the older generation is cooler on the climate change theory, there is a much more logical explanation for their lack of faith in the big-government hoax.
The older generation does not suffer from the indoctrination of a leftist school system that pushes group-think based ideologies like “common core,” where the correct answer isn’t what logic dictates, but what the group “feels” it is.
No, the older generation still believes in facts, that one plus one equals two, no matter what a bunch of self-absorbed and privileged crybabies say it is. And thank God the older generation is still here to keep us all from going over the deep end (for now).
When it comes to the future there is much to be afraid of, we can agree with Bill Nye on that. But for those of us that see what is happening to the minds of the younger generation, we’re much more frightened by the potential coming of another Great Leap Forward than by an imaginary foe like climate change.
