Liberal Arrogance

The arrogance of the Liberal Left is on clear display in a piece by Dave Lindorff in the Baltimore Chronicle;

Global Warming Will Save America from the Right...Eventually

After describing a scenario where much of "red state America" is destroyed or depopulated as a result of rising sea levels and drought, he concludes;
There is a poetic justice to this of course. It is conservatives who are giving us the candidates who steadfastly refuse to have the nation take steps that could slow the pace of climate change, so it is appropriate that they should bear the brunt of its impact.

The important thing is that we, on the higher ground both actually and figuratively, need to remember that, when they begin their historic migration from their doomed regions, we not give them the keys to the city. They certainly should be offered assistance in their time of need, but we need to keep a firm grip on our political systems, making sure that these guilty throngs who allowed the world to go to hell are gerrymandered into political impotence in their new homes.

There will be much work to be done to help the earth and its residents—human and non-human—survive this man-made catastrophe, and we can’t have these future refugee troglodytes, should their personal disasters still fail to make them recognize reality, mucking things up again.

It should be considered acceptable, in this stifling new world, to say, “Shut up. We told you this would happen.”
That is the state of Liberalism in America today. Do not kid yourselves, these people have no use for a free and open democracy, they want totalitarian socialism. If you doubt it, just look at what controls they wish to put in the people. They will even tell you what kind of light bulbs to buy.

And they do not want free speech for any but themselves. Dissenting opinions and those that offer them are to be crushed.
