J.D. HEYES– In recent days, President Obama announced new “executive actions” on guns, that included language to shore up current federal law aimed at keeping mentally ill Americans from buying guns. Some skeptics of the president’s actions believe that, as is usually the case, there are ulterior motives behind his actions.
For example, some believe that the president’s order may include guidance on declaring people who disagree with Obama’s policies – like those regarding so-called “global warming” and “climate change” – as mentally unstable.
It’s not too far out of the realm of possibility, given this president’s narcissism, anti-gun demeanor and ideological, cult-like adherence to the concept of man-caused climate phenomena.
As noted by the Media Research Center, anyone designated as “mentally ill” by doctors – who now have been empowered to report patients they deem to be unfit to the FBI – can be denied the right to keep and bear arms.
The official White House fact sheet on Obama’s new regulations states:
“Current law prohibits individuals from buying a gun if, because of a mental health issue, they are either a danger to themselves or others or are unable to manage their own affairs. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has indicated that it will begin the rulemaking process to ensure that appropriate information in its records is reported to NICS.” [Emphasis added]
‘Climate denial’ is a ‘mental disorder’
Obama has repeatedly claimed that the threat of climate change is a greater one than that of terrorism; so, aren’t people who deny that climate change is real, a danger to themselves or others and, thus, unfit to own firearms?
The notion that climate skeptics are not mentally capable people is not a new concept employed by the radical Left. Consider:
— Oregon-based “sociology and environmental studies” Prof. Kari Norgaard has publicly stated that skepticism of climate change is a mental problem that must be “treated.” (To show what a fruit loop this woman is, she also compared acceptance of the reality that climate change is bogus, to the “struggle” against racism and slavery.)
— The journal Psychology Today published an article that listed a trio of warning signs that you are living a life of “climate change denial:”
You think climate change is bad, but not that bad.
You don’t have an emotional reaction to climate change.
You aren’t getting political.
So, if you’re one of those people who have come to understand that the climate change agenda is really about control, not “saving the planet,” or you’re not mad enough about it, or you’ve opted out of the political fight over it, you’re mental.
— As noted by The Telegraph‘s Christopher Booker (one of those mentally ill deniers), in a piece entitled, Climate ‘denial’ is now a mental disorder, says so-called “eco-psychologists” convened recently at the University of the West of England in Bristol, to examine the notion of classifying climate change denial as a “mental disorder.”
Believe it – or else
Those crazy Leftists – they create their own narrative and then, when the majority of people catch onto them, they change the rules of the game back into their favor.
Can’t convince people to believe in the man-caused global warming hoax on their own? Fine – we’ll just label them crazy, and for extra measure, we’ll see to it that they are denied their constitutional rights in the process.
Speaking of bat-stuffing crazy regarding this issue, how about Robert Kennedy, Jr., calling for a law that punishes people who don’t buy the warming globaloney? That’s no different than a dictator requiring his people to believe in his edicts, no matter how obviously flawed they are, or risk losing their freedom (or lives).
It’s not clear that Obama’s order will affect global warming – let’s call them realists – but you can certainly see where this “you’re crazy if you don’t believe it” attitude could go.
