“Perhaps inspired by the success of Coronavirus fearmongering in impoverishing the formerly prosperous West, global warming enthusiasts are beginning to agitate to list ‘climate change’ as the cause of death on death certificates. The widely observed practice of listing Coronavirus as the cause of death for anyone who died with it, not necessarily of it, has worked wonders in scaring people into accepting previously unheard-of abrogation of constitutionally guaranteed rights.” – Thomas Lifson, “Latest warmist scheme: Record ‘climate change’ as cause of death on death certificates” – American Thinker, May 23, 2020.

“So Conway, a Sky News editor, can look at this pandemic – which is poised to kill multitudes, disrupt entire nations and frighten the masses – and find in it not an occasion to weep and sympathize, but to gloat about the right people being killed. And he does so because it might serve his fanatical cause – the extinction of the modern economy and the end of all carbon emissions.” – Rex Murphy, “Even in the midst of a health crisis, climate fanatics never miss an opportunity” – National Post, March 13th, 2020.

“While discrimination is wrong under the Judeo-Christian moral framework, it is fine under the social justice moral framework. As the Laurier Employment Equity web page states: ‘equity is a remedy for past discrimination.’ So, as a remedy, Laurier is going to harm young, male entrepreneurship students (by excluding them) because of the sins of their fathers. Two wrongs make a right, apparently. That is a corrupt moral arithmetic and no good will come of it.” – Will McNally, “Wilfrid Laurier engages in sex discrimination through inclusion efforts” – The Post Millennial, March 8th, 2020.

“For over a hundred years progressives have made common cause with their communist brothers-in -arms. The proletariat is to be used and abused by their betters of a self-appointed elevated class with stature unattainable for the working class. This is what our predatory left is all about. Does anyone think for one minute that Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer cares one bit about ‘the American people’? They do not. We are mere pawns in their game of seek and destroy; seek the means of our destruction and destroy our means of survival. That is why they have zeroed in on this pandemic as a long-awaited opportunity. They are the fox-hunting royalty, we are the foxes.” – Patricia McCarthy, “The left vs. the right – predators vs. prey” – American Thinker, May 23rd, 2020.

“For Europe, the train has already largely left the station. Islam is there in force and growing, largely because political correctness hampered any meaningful response even after the negative impacts on culture and society were becoming obvious to everyone… When I lived in Germany in the 1990s, there were regular and fantastic festivals and communal gatherings… When I returned twenty years later, there were noticeably fewer festivals and they weren’t as cheery or heavily attended and usually involved far more security and active screening… What had changed? Could it be incidents like that in which a terrorist drove a truck through a Berlin Christmas Market?” – Fletch Daniels, “Wuhan flu reminder: Political correctness kills” – American Thinker, March 17th, 2020.
