NAACP: Civil Rights Requires Fighting Global Warming

Ever in search of a fusionist vision of all leftist pathologies, global warming fetishists at the NAACP have seized on the notion that achieving MLK’s dream of full civil rights for African Americans cannot happen unless global warming is curbed.

That’s right. You see, minorities, in their view, not only having to contend with racism but also with the fact that they are ‘disproportionately affected by global warming’.

Since the globe is heating up beyond control — see the bomb storm in New England in recent days — minorities lack the means to contend with rising temperatures.

The bottom line?

If you don’t support the Paris Climate Accords, you’re a racist.

Got that?

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming.

“We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection.

Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate Connections.

Traditionally, such concerns focused on traditional pollutants from factories or vehicles, but the NAACP is expanding it to carbon dioxide, which scientists blame for warming the Earth in recent decades.

The environmental movement has fretted in recent years that it’s not diverse enough, and groups, like 350.org, have tried to draw parallels between global warming and alleged police brutality that sparked riots in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014.
