MSNBC Guest: Obama-Town Violence Due To Global Warming

In an interview with Joe Scarborough, Christie Hefner (Hugh’s daughter) from the Center for American Progress offered her opinion as to why there seems to be a disparity between gun violence in Chicago and gun violence in New York City, two cities with similar, stringent gun control laws:

 “Is it higher [in Chicago]? Yes. Last year, we hit a record number of murders from guns, and this year, we were already outpacing last year’s numbers. Now, there are contributing factors that are not under anybody’s control, and it may seem odd, but it is factually true, one of them is actually the weather. There is a dramatic increase in gun violence when it is warmer, and we are having this climate-change effect that is driving that.”

 The Windy City’s murder rate last year averaged 1.5 people per day. Chicago is such an easy target by 2nd Amendment advocates because it shows the failures of gun control laws. Gun grabbers are so sick of the attention that they have to come up with an excuse. It’s not the laws that prohibit residents from defending themselves that are at fault here. It’s global warming.

There are a lot of factors at play here. First, when people burn fossil fuels for energy, it releases greenhouse gases, so named because they allegedly trap all the heat inside the Earth’s atmosphere, thereby causing the global temperature to increase (the global temperature has skyrocketed a stunning .28 degree Fahrenheit in the past 20 years). When this greenhouse effect occurs, it causes things like droughts, torrential weather, floods, disease, mayhem, death and will eventually cause the Earth to explode if not stopped by our savior politicians.

These things cause wars over water and food. This is why there has been so much warfare recently. It’s because of global warming. And we’re over in the Middle East because we’re just trying to “keep the peace,” but global warming has taken such a toll on people there that it’s nearly impossible.

These statements sound like the ruminations of a drunk man, but people actually believe them. Of course, they also say that warfare in itself causes global warming because of all the carbon emissions from war equipment and weapons. So it’s a vicious cycle that will likely never end until we’re all dead from war or from global warming, but at that point, what difference would it make?

I guess this is why Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize a few years back. Because if the world would just agree to “do something” about global warming, we could save millions and millions of lives from potential wars and violence involving AR-15s. This planetary, climatic phenomenon can be easily averted by imposing taxes and regulations on people and businesses. If governments around the would just agree to sell off carbon “allowances” like indulgences, we would not only cut down on carbon emissions, but we would reduce warfare and violence. (And not to mention increasing governments’ tax revenues and control over the people, which will help the economy, right?)

I nominate Christie Hefner for the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Huh????

  • ICOYAR

    Exactly. Liberals are full of hot air. They are HEATING up Chicago whenever one of them vomits out something they have to say.

  • Screeminmeeme

    Honest to God...these people are nuts.

    Just goes to who how utterly unwilling they are to place blame for all the violence where it deserves to be placed.......which is squarely on the one who is perpetrating it.

  • gnafuasusual

    Christie needs to get some education. Warmer days/nights bring out the crazies because they don't like the cold. Summer months are the worst for crimes. period. It isn't due to Global Warming. She needs to follow some Scientists to get global warming straight. 2% of Global Warming may be caused by man but where is the rest of it coming from. There's a lot going on in our galaxy right now. Follow it. As for the violence that is happening, we need to look back to see how morals and family values have changed over the past forty years.

    • LeSellers

      That might explain part of it, but Chicago still had 40 murders in January this year, and warm it wasn't.

      Mr. O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

      • gnafuasusual

        Chicago - New York always has been the hot beds for crime. 40 murders in Chicago during January is probably a small amount compared their over 500 murders per year. NO Guns allowed - banned - and that means the criminals have the hardware to murder innocent people who don't have any defense! Proven> remove guns from honest gun owners and crime rate goes up.

        • LeSellers

          12 * 40 = 480

          That's not far off the 2012 average (506 / 12 = 42.5), so if there is a "dramatic increase", as Miss Hefner claims, when it gets warm, the number in August will have to be more than 60, and the total body count will be 600+ this year.

          Mr. O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

  • Remington 870

    Ms. Hefner has a shingle loose on her roof for such an idiotic comment. The lefties are either blaming Bush, GOP, extreme right wingers, NRA and now it is Global Warming. Ever have an intelligent conversation with a leftie? I never have, they are nuckenfuts. (reverse the n with the f.)

      The sad thing is their audience belives this bs. The problem is that Black democrats are the mayors of these big cities

  • Play Righter

    Global warming can't be the problem with increased shootings because, as anybody who listens to rap already knows, guns are really cool.

  • Doc

    Still no one blames the fecal minded moron with the gun.

  • dad666

    these people don't have the Ba**s to recognize their absurdities. First everything was Bush's fault now the Gun problem is due to Global warming. Face facts, The gun problem is restrictive unconstitutional laws limiting the General public to Weapons to protect themselves, not the weather, not the NRA, not the Republicans but the stupid notion that restricting Guns will solve the problem. Yeah then only the bad guys will have guns. Not on my block Fools.

  • jwright673

    If warm weather is the cause, someone needs to ask this ditz why a 16 year-old boy walked up to, and shot to death, two people in Steubenville, Oh last night. When I got up this morning, the wind chill factor was -4. If anything, the higher temps are frying ms hefner's brain. She needs to add another layer of tin foil in her hat...

  • randydutton

    If it's global warming, then blame it on your pets. Nothing will make a progressive more angry than going after kitty.

    In a spate of recent articles, progressives have pointed out
    how bad cats are for the environment and some have proposed banning cats
    globally. That's right. They want to prevent all cats from breeding...forever,
    until there are no more domesticated cats. And yes, their coming for your
    little dog, too!

    Don't believe me? Read the articles:

  • RobfromVA

    I'm sure the murder rate has nothing to do with the lack of value for life within the inner city! When the only reason you are alive is because your momma wanted money from the government, and you've never known your dad because he's in prison for killing someone, your going to have a lot of respect for human life... yea right! But I'm sure a few more gun laws will change all of that!

    By the way, I thought the reason the child was at the location where she got killed, was because she was seeking protection from bad weather? Did I miss something here? Oh yea, I guess had it been .25 of a degree cooler, that gunman would not have been outside throwing bullets into crowds!

  • mas1az

    With all the hot air coming from liberal democrates over global warming, they themselves are to blame for the rising in tempertatures. So lets pass more stringent mental health laws to excluding them from office and owning guns. Then the temperature, nation wide, will drastically cool off naturally. But Liberals don't like things natural as they can't control nature though they work real hard at trying to push their ideologies on others all the time. What a waste of brain power a liberal is.

    The bad guys are bad and want to shoot people with guns because of the air they breath and temperature fluctuations? It makes perfect sense in today's society where no one accepts responsibility for their behavior or choices.

  • Tells it like it is

    .
    Perhaps this bimbo should read the latest press release from the UN. They now claim they have bee .duping the people and global warming has not been hearly the threat that they claim for the past 40 years. Gun control or temperature control will not solve the problem. A change in culture and morals in Chicago will go a long way towards ending violence against the defenseless. even airconditioning the entire Chicago area would not change thier culture of violence.

    Violence is not generally a conservative problem. nor is it a general US population problem. The vast majorities of Americans obey the laws. Violence is a 'rat cultural problem. Who conducts the knockout game? Who has flash mobbing of stores? which is more prevailent, white on black violence or black on black violence or black on white/asian/hispanic violence? Look at where the murders and violence are, mainly concentrated large democrat conclaves. It is long past time for the 'rats and thier low information voters to show some community responsibility, clean up their act and start behaving like adult humans instead of the degenerates they are.

    • PennJim

      I would add that since most urban areas contain a disprotionate quantity of liberal democrats that maybe liberal democrats should be banned and not the guns.

    By their thinking, war is good. It kills a lot of people that would normally use the worlds resources and create more global warming. Liberals are clueless.

    Chicago, Illinois: Guns virtually outlawed by government regulation. High rates of murder and violent crime.
    Kenesaw, Georgia: Guns and ammunition required to be owned by all heads of household by government regulation. Murder rate too low to measure and extremely low crime rate in general.
    I think we know what the problem is and it ain't "Global Warming".

    Another lunatic that has a pulpit to spread their garbage for the Obama causes and agendas to become the "King" Christie Hefner, no matter what gun law is passed, I will honor my oath to the Constitution and my country. Obama is not my keeper but the Bill of Rights has more power than an executive order or Congress creating an unlawful bill. It's our protection from a tyrannical government or tyrant.

  • YarpWar

    Ahahah! Thanks, Philip. ..."having eyes they don't see, and ears, they don't hear"...having brains, they can't think. Actually, there may be a connection (to people's moods and behavior) and massive Chem-trail dumping of chemicals, poisons, disease, metals, etc. that we're all forced to breathe. We're told about "weather modification", we "see" the sky "change" as the toxic chem-trail spews spread thru the day, and we "feel" the negative effects in our bodies. For years I've been monitoring and keeping notes of how people act & feel health-wise (I'm my own best experimental subject!)after heavy chem-trail campaigns in whatever area I'm in at the time. I've observed that otherwise regular folks, even 'friends' can change personality and behave in angry, hateful, unreasonable ways that defy explanation, not to mention large percentages getting "flu" and pneumonia and eye-ball scratches, unrelenting "allergies", etc. during same time frame. Anyway, these school shootings have been happening in winter! Also, shooters are invariably taking prescription meds that alter brain chemistry. Whoops, using too much space here. Thanks again, you're right on.

    It is worth noting that the "Greenhouse Effect" does NOT work the way it has been explained. If it did ("they allegedly trap all the heat inside the Earth’s atmosphere, thereby causing the global temperature to increase") then you could put warm coffee into a thermos (much more efficient at "trapping heat") and it would get hot! Instead, even in a thermos, the coffee will eventually cool.

    Greenhouse gases (poorly named as they do not work the way a greenhouse does) will warm the atmosphere, but they cannot warm Earth's surface for the simple reason that the so-called "back radiation" from the atmosphere is being emitted by a cooler atmosphere to a warmer Earth. For that heat transfer to take place, the Second Law of Thermodynamics would have to be broken.

    Which explains why Earth is NOT warming due to anything humans do with carbon-based fuel.

    Another interesting item to note is that the current level of CO2 in the atmosphere (~385 ppm) is much lower than it has been for most of the past 600 million years. During some of the coldest climate regimes this planet has ever experienced, atmospheric CO2 was more than 10 times higher than it is today. Compare that to the puny emissions of CO2 to the atmosphere by humans (less than 5% of naturally-occurring annual emissions). Furthermore, CO2 emissions are nearly balanced by CO2 uptake (e.g., plant growth, cold ocean absorption, etc.).

    The claim of human-caused climate change is complete rubbish.

    Idiots are going to be idiots no matter what! They can't help it, they've been indoctrinated and brainwashed! Typical liberal ideology, place blame everywhere but where it belongs! The only one to gain anything from this nonsense is the one who started it! He said he invented the internet too! Pompous, overbearing, arrogant, elitist, liberal, greedy idiot Al Gore! Under his plan the nations would have to buy carbon credits from guess who? If you answered Al Gore congratulations! Global warming is the biggest lie ever perpetrated on mankind! With the possible exception of Obummer who agrees with big Al!
