Long-time left-wing writer and activist, Naomi Klein, says the west doesn’t deserve to exist because of climate change.
Klein was speaking to a crowd about the Green New Deal at a Columbia Journalism Review event on April 30 when she made the admission that the west has been nothing but a blight on the planet, Newsbusters reported.
The anti-American activist exclaimed that climate change makes her feel a “sense of doom” and “self-loathing.”
“Having covered this for a really long time, uh, I know that one of the strongest forces we are up against is the sense of doom, inevitability, but also kind of a self-loathing,” Klein said. “Like we’ve been told for so long that all we are are selfish, that all we are are short-term thinkers. We get messages like the huge cover story in the New York Times Magazine that blames the whole thing on human nature.”
She then added, “So I really do think there is a deep feeling of ‘we’re not even sure we deserve to survive.'”
Klein celebrated the silly little video she made with New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and said that the whole enterprise was meant to “pierce the feeling of inevitability” that the world is doomed because of global warming.
You may recall the absurdist video, “AOC’s message from the future,” which laid out a socialist vision for America’s future that included massive government spending and mandates. Klein and AOC exclaimed that there are only 12 years to “change everything.”
Of course, climate extremists have been making this ten and 12-year claim for the last 30 years. Back in the sixties they claimed that we only had a decade to “save the earth.”
Every few years there is yet another leftist envirowacko to make the short-term claim.
As for solving a perceived climate crisis, Klein said, “We have the slimmest of chances, but if we have even that sliver of a chance then it is our moral responsibility to enlarge that change. And yes, that includes journalists.”
In another discussion at the CJR “Covering Climate Change” event, Klein complained that media coverage of climate change is inadequate because a large number of journalists have a “confirmation” and “fetish” for centrism and middle ground.
“I admit that climate change is — doesn’t pose a sort of confirmation bias threat for me. I’m a rabble-rousing leftist. I admit it. Right? I want deep change. And now climate scientists are saying hey, guess what, we need deep change,” Klein continued.
In other words, Klein gave a tacit admission that she really does not believe the nonsense being doled out by the global warming religionists, and what she really wants is to use their momentum to spark the communist change she wants to impose on America and the west.
