When a liberal says it’s time for you to shut up, it usually means they’re losing an argument. When they want you arrested and prosecuted, well. . . Two weeks ago I noted here that the climatistas were getting so desperate that they were starting to call for climate skeptics to be arrested and prosecuted, because, like the Inquisition, the climatistas are in possession of the complete truth, so shut up.

Apparently unembarrassed by this open embrace of fascism, Adam Weinstein has taken to Gawker.com to double down on fascist authoritarianism. In “Arrest Climate Change Deniers,” Weinstein has such gems as:

Those denialists should face jail. They should face fines. They should face lawsuits from the classes of people whose lives and livelihoods are most threatened by denialist tactics. . . Those people are criminally negligent.
The article is tagged as a “rant,” and is about the only accurate term associated with the piece.
Really—I’m starting to wonder whether the Koch brothers aren’t secretly funding people like Weinstein and Lawrence Torcello (the Inquisitor mentioned previously). With climate campaigners like them offering such nuanced “persuasion,” who needs Al Gore?
