Apparently, it’s “ET phone home” for the lefties these days. We now have two instances of leftists wishing for alien intervention, and, no, I am not talking about folks from another country but things from another galaxy!
First there is pseudo-economics expert Paul Krugman. Last week on Fareed Zakaria’s CNN program, Krugman seriously floated the idea that a space alien invasion could act as a great “economic stimulus” for our flagging economy. No, really. He did.
During the discussion, Zakaria blurted out the central theme of discredited economist John Maynard Keynes ’s idea that flooding a country with government money can somehow create a perfect economy even though it is divorced from real world markets and anything logical. But good ol’ Krugman couldn’t abide not being the biggest loon in the room so he went straight for space.
Catch this wondrous logic…
Paul Krugman: If we discovered that space aliens were planning to attack and we needed a massive build-up to counter the space alien threat and inflation and budget deficits took a secondary place to that, this slump would be over in eighteen months. And then if we discovered, woops we made a mistake, there aren’t actually space aliens, we’d be a better…
No, there was a Twilight Zone episode like this in which scientists fake an alien threat in order to achieve world peace. This time we don’t need that we need it in order to get some fiscal stimulus.
First of all there was no such Twilight Zone episode. But his lack of knowledge of pop culture aside, it is amazing that this goof can stand in favor of a fake alien invasion drummed up to fool Americans into going for massive government spending, but he’s also tagged that on the tail of nearly 10 years of complaining that America is eeeevil for getting into what he considers fake wars in the mid east! Not only is he a fantasist but he’s a hypocrite!
But not to be out done, a new report by “scientists” now claims that space aliens will come to smite the eeeevil earth unless we all come to believe the fantasists pushing the faith of global warming.
That’s right, aliens that might somehow find us just might dislike the fact that we’ve destroyed our planet and might whipe us out because they care more about our environment than we do.
“Green” aliens might object to the environmental damage humans have caused on Earth and wipe us out to save the planet. “These scenarios give us reason to limit our growth and reduce our impact on global ecosystems. It would be particularly important for us to limit our emissions of greenhouse gases, since atmospheric composition can be observed from other planets,” the authors write.
Got that, you globaloney deniers? Better bow down at the alter of greenism so that the space aliens won’t wipe us out. GOT IT YOU JERKS?
But isn’t it just like the left. We have always thought they were out in space. This just proves it.
