Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
“According to Berkeley professor and former US Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, Donald Trump’s ‘lies’ caused the riots in Sweden on Monday night,” Chris Menahan reports at Information Liberation.
Earlier this month, Reich floated the insane conspiracy theory that Breitbart plants were responsible for the riots at Berkeley. That’s since been thoroughly debunked.
Floating another loony theory Tuesday, Reich said on Twitter: “Trump’s lies have consequences. 48 hrs after his comments on Sweden, riots broke out in an immigrant community.”
The riots were actually triggered by the arrest of a drug dealer.
Aryan Skynet affirms and amplifies Reich’s brave attribution of the Swedish disorders to Trump’s irresponsibly hateful statements and concurs with Reich’s well-reasoned analysis – the risible spin of racists like Chris Menahan notwithstanding. It is, furthermore, beyond question at this point that the torching of up to a thousand cars in France on New Year’s Eve was blowback precipitated by Trump’s Mussolini-like declaration in mid-December that the United States reserves the right to withdraw from the previous administration’s Paris agreement on global warming.
It is Aryan Skynet’s contention, however, that Reich misses the most sinister aspect of Trump’s literally Hitlerian anti-refugee and anti-immigrant agenda – namely, his stance on global warming. Trump has rightly taken a huge deal of heat for appointing a “climate change denier”, Scott Pruitt, to head the Environmental Protection Agency. “As sea levels rise and storms become more severe and as rates of chronic illness go up due to environmental pollution at least we know who to hold responsible,” scolds Robert Franek at PoliticsUSA. “It is terribly frightening,” Franek frets, “to think that our already endangered climate is now at the mercy of someone who doesn’t even acknowledge the reality of climate change and wants to reduce regulations that will lead to increased pollution endangering not only plant and animal life, but also our air and water.”
“The stakes for the United States, and the world, are enormous,” agrees National Geographic’s Michael Greshko.
If humankind does not reduce its greenhouse gas emissions immediately, climate scientists say, Earth could face as much as 11 degrees Fahrenheit of warming by 2100 relative to preindustrial temperatures, leading to increases in droughts and wildfires, rising seas, and major disruptions to global agriculture.
In fact, the effects of climate change already are being felt, including rising anomalies in global temperature, sea level rise, ocean acidification, an uptick in the frequency and severity of heatwaves, losses of land ice in Antarctica and Greenland, and changes in the ranges of many plant and animal species.
Indeed, “climate change makes goat meat tough,” that same publication’s ace reporter and culinary correspondent Tim McDonnell reveals:
Rainfall was below-average across much of Kenya this year, as it has been for the last few years. The drought was so bad in the region around Olepolos that Waruingi’s well ran dry for the first time, and he has had to begin trucking water in; the weekend I visited he spent more than $240 on it. When water is scarce, goats have to walk long distances to find it, and well-traveled goats make for unappetizing meat. This has never been a problem for him before.
“Climate change directly impacts my pocket,” he says. “It’s very real out here.” […]
That may be true, but you wouldn’t know it from this unsophisticated mazungu diner. […]
The meal was delicious, and I saved just enough room for one more Tusker to settle the stomach and raise a toast with Waruingi to the victory of grilled meat over climate change.
“It’s amazing that some educated people don’t believe in it,” he said, with a conspiratorial wink. “Tell the people out here that, and they’ll tell you you’re crazy.”
All of which prompts the burning question: what is President Trump’s real game in denying the cold, hard Kevlar reality of the anthropogenic warming of the earth’s atmosphere? The president’s stance is especially odd when one considers that it appears to undermine his hardline position on immigration. While “wars, terror and poverty in the Middle East and beyond will continue to drive the surge” of migrants into Europe, Time’s Aryn Baker reported in 2015, an “additional factor, say scientists, is likely to make it even worse: climate change.” Baker elaborates:
Across the Middle East and Africa climate change, according to climatologists at the U.S. Department of Defense-funded Strauss Center project on Climate Change and African Political Stability in Texas, has already affected weather. These changes have contributed to more frequent natural disasters like flooding and drought. Agricultural land is turning to desert and heat waves are killing of crops and grazing animals. Over the long term, changing weather patterns are likely to drive farmers, fishermen and herders away from affected areas, according to Femia’s Center for Climate and Security, and into urban centers – as has already happened in Syria. Both the Pentagon, which calls climate change a “threat multiplier” and U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have warned of “water wars,” in which rival governments or militias fight over declining resources, sending even greater waves of migrants in search of security and sustenance. On Aug. 31, Secretary of State John Kerry warned that climate change could create a new class of migrants, what he called “climate refugees” at a conference on climate change conference in Anchorage, Alaska. “You think migration is a challenge to Europe today because of extremism, wait until you see what happens when there’s an absence of water, an absence of food, or one tribe fighting against another for mere survival,” he said.
The fact of the matter is that Trump, while ostensibly opposed to the entry of refugees into Europe, has actually set into motion the infernal climatological machinery of state that will serve to accelerate the arrival of Africans and Middle Easterners into a frequently less than welcoming European community. Will Worley and Lizzie Dearden of Britain’s Independent give a sense of the tragic scope of the crisis in an article published this past year:
Refugees in Europe are living in conditions comparable to Nazi concentration camps, a senior Greek politician has said.
The Greek interior minister, Panagiotis Kouroublis was visiting the Idomeni camp on Greece’s border with Macedonia.
Despite being planned for just 2,500 people, the camp hosts around 12,000 refugees – many from Syria and Iraq – in wet, cold and muddy conditions.
“I do not hesitate to say that this is a modern-day Dachau, a result of the logic of closed borders,” said Mr Kouroublis. “Whoever comes here takes several blows to the stomach.”
Idomeni is regarded as one of the worst refugee camps on the European migrant trail, which has increased in size following Macedonia’s decision to close its border.
Last week, in an example of the desperate situation faced by refugees in the camp, a photo emerged of a baby being washed by its parents in a puddle.
A new “£6 million facility, which is in a former bus shelter in the north of the French capital,” was opened last year, and “demand will be extremely high for the beds, [gas] showers, kitchens and even a football pitch that it will provide,” discloses The Sun’s Peter Allen. Trump, meanwhile, “is building literal, actual concentration camps for undocumented immigrants,” frowns John Prager at Addicting Info.
In short, if you’re a member of this group that Trump considers undesirable, you’ll be sent to one of these camps and any city that might otherwise harbor you will face extreme penalties for doing so. […]
The question remains: just how much are we going to take of this bullshit?
Make no mistake about it: people will die in Trump’s camps and his supporters will applaud.
This. Is. Not. OK.
The situation, furthermore, is no better in the imperial penal colony Australia, as Commonweal’s Miriam Hill reveals:
Australia so values what it calls “mateship” – helping one another in times of adversity […] Our American friends frequently tell us how lucky we are to be here: We won’t have to live through a Trump presidency firsthand, and we don’t have to worry about our children being caught in gun violence.
But there are some shadows. […] alleged abuse of refugees and asylum-seekers, many of them Muslim, detained on the remote islands of Manus and Nauru under conditions that University of Sydney political scientist David Smith characterizes as a “tropical concentration camp.” Taken with news reports of young men of Aboriginal descent being strapped down and hooded at detention centers in the Northern Territory, it is raising the old ghost of “White Australia,” the shared belief in the nation as an outpost of white civilization in the middle of the Pacific expanse – an image that persisted into the 1990s and that few might have expected to see return.
Climate-cudgeled Mexican, Middle Eastern, and African migrants, like little lambs being led to the slaughter, are – under the mendacious guise of a humanitarian gesture, of course – slyly conducted into Europe, the United States, and Australia for their incarceration and next their eventual extermination – Trump’s final solution to the immigration question.
At all costs, the influx of non-Europeans onto the continent and into the United States must stop. Everyone – Skynet readers, goldbugs, neoreactionaries, flat-earthers, the United Nations, the ADL, Amnesty International, Avaaz, the SPLC, Sierra Club, PETA, NAMBLA, Greenpeace, NPR, and the National Council of La Raza – must join forces in a united front to prevent this catastrophe from unfolding. Migrants, for their own protection, must be implored to return to their homelands – even if transportation has to be facilitated involuntarily – lest the universe again bear witness to harrowing Holocaust!
