06 Jun 2009 A Somewhat Happy Ending to the Latest Death Threat Story
…first covered in Climate Depot about the global warming believer and blog writer at the prominent liberal blog Talking Points Memo who asked: “at what point do we jail or execute global warming deniers?”
The gentleman appears contrite.
“The Insolent Braggart,” as the anonymous blogger is known, isn’t the first to wish death upon those of us who aren’t convinced that human beings are causing soon-to-be-catastrophic global warming. (My own e-mail in-box is proof of that.) Over the years, I’ve reached the conclusion that most of these folks have stopped thinking of their political opposition as human beings, so when they express death wishes or grotesque threats, it doesn’t seem real to them.
Until somebody who hasn’t drunk the Kool-aid notices, that is.
Ironically, given how he got his 15 minutes of fame, “The Insolent Braggart” is probably a perfectly nice, if occasionally misguided, fellow.
Here’s predicting that one day he’ll feel about the global warming theory the same way he now feels about writing blog posts about executions.
