Leading climate skeptic advocated HIV+ internment camps

‘Misplaced’ belief in climate change has killed more people than Hitler: Monckton

Christopher Monckton, the prominent British climate change skeptic who made the news last week when he compared climate protesters in Copenhagen to “Hitler Youth,” advocated the creation of internment camps for HIV-positive people in an article published two decades ago.

An article that Monckton penned for the American Spectator in 1987, and uncovered by Media Matters’ Chris Harris, states:

…There is only one way to stop AIDS. That is to screen the entire population regularly and to quarantine all carriers of the disease for life to halt transmission of the disease to those who are uninfected. Every member of the population should be blood-tested every month to detect the presence of antibodies against the disease, and all those found to be infected with the virus, even if only as carriers, should be isolated compulsorily, immediately, and permanently.

To students of history, Monckton’s notion of a permanent internment of HIV carriers is no doubt reminiscent of the Third Reich’s policy of sending certain “undesirable” groups, such as the developmentally challenged, homosexuals, Jews and Gypsies, to concentration camps. Yet it is Monckton himself who was last week invoking Nazi analogies.

The British member of nobility, referred to in the UK as Viscount Monckton, drew outrage from climate activists when he compared environmental protesters at the Copenhagen climate summit to “Hitler Youth.”

Later in the week, Monckton defended his claim to a climate activist and expanded on his Hitler analogy.

“The last time that that kind of robotic hysteria was ever seen in Copenhagen was when the Hitler Youth were here when [Denmark] was occupied by the Germans,” Monckton said. “I don’t blame the young people, because they have been propagandized the same way as the Hitler Youth were.”

Monckton then stated that “misplaced” public belief in climate change has killed more people than Hitler did.

“The number of people being killed by this misplaced belief in climate change is, if anything, greater than the number killed by Hitler,” he said. “There have been major food riots in 12 major regions of the planet over the last two years, accompanied by mass starvation and death because of the doubling of food prices caused by the biofuel scam, which is itself a spin-off of the global warming scam.”

Monckton testified on climate change legislation before the House Ways and Means Committee this spring, and has been quoted on a number of occasions by congresspeople opposed to climate change initiatives.

“This is who is leading the battle against climate change,” comments John Avarosis on AmericaBlog. “We have a far larger problem than the fact that some people are denying climate change. Conservatives in this country have taken to a rather disturbing extremism that embraces McCarthyism (labeling everyone a socialist and a Maoist, and doing it with a straight face), and literally believing that climate change advocates are worse than Hitler – not just making the dumb comparison, but actually believing it.”

Watch Joy Reid’s epic correction of GOP strategist: ‘This is going to be a white nationalist reelection’

Published

on

President Donald Trump will continue to attack the four young women of color in Congress known as The Squad, MSNBC anchor Joy Reid predicted on Friday.

Trump has repeatedly used racist attacks to target the four, who are Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

Host Steve Kornacki interviewed Republican strategist Noelle Nikpour about Trump's message.

"So Noelle, for Republicans, again the folks who were getting in touch with [Mike] Pence and saying 'make Trump stop doing this,' do they have to be ready now for the possibility Trump’s going to keep doing these rallies, he wants to run against these four congresswomen in particular, make them the face of the Democratic Party?" Kornacki asked. "If the crowd starts chanting again, 'send her back,' 'send them back,” doesn't stop, is this going to be a feature of Trump rallies from here through 2020?"

Trump hates women of color for birthing babies keeping him from ‘making America white again’: MSNBC analyst

Published

on

President Donald Trump's loathing of women of color is driven by the fact he hates the babies they birth, a Rutgers University professor argued on MSNBC on Friday.

"The Beat" anchor Ari Melber interviewed Prof. Brittney Cooper about Trump's racist attacks on four young women of color in Congress.

"Look, the thing that bothers me about Trump and his cronies is that they have a long history of attacking women of color, and it’s really important to say these comments are not just racist, they’re also deeply sexist," Cooper explained.

"They don't just attack people of color, they also specifically go after women of color," she continued.

Hope Hicks’ testimony ‘appears to be false’ — and Democrats have a plan to prove it: Judiciary member

Published

on

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks likely lied to Congress -- and Democrats have a plan to prove it, a Democrat on the House Judiciary said on MSNBC on Friday.

Anchor Peter Alexander interviewed Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) about potential perjury by Hicks, who was a close confidant of Trump during his campaign, transition, and administration.

"It has been several months since President Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen testified that President Trump directed him to pay hush-money payments to adult film star Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, but new documents muddy the waters a bit for former White House communications director Hope Hicks, who testified to the House Judiciary Committee that she had no knowledge of the payments before they were made," Alexander reported.
