Lord Monckton v. Greenpeace Activist

I suppose it might be considered a somewhat unfair tactic to buttonhole an apparently rather gullible “environmentalist” on the streets of Copenhagen, but then again, maybe not.

    You infatuation with this charlatan escapes me.

    Could be that British thing… or the fact that he’s like Rodney Dangerfield’s long lost cousin….

  3. CWTF

    I also like this one…

    From him, it’s just grating. It’s that tone the English can effect that seeks to make the people they’re talking to feel like retarded children.

    May said pretty much what Monckton did – except with not histrionics and self-rightheous indignation..
    Basically while being interviewed on CBC that the accretions had been pulled… No conspiracy or anything…

    Seems that the Lord was looking for a confrontation…

    He’s barely past the one minute mark before he starts lying. That’s all I could take. The interviewee is indeed gullible if she believes anything that the Viscount Munchausen tells her.

    Wow! Those kids got a sticker on his back!

    Hey, those brave kids had to put with Christopher Leery, Viscount Bad-Touch of Oops-So-Sorry-Is-That-Your-Bottom’s wandering hands to get that close to him to pull off that stunt.

    Maybe it’s just to annoy y0u. 😉

  10. Obviously anthropogenic climate change is true. It’s been documented as fact already. In The Bible. When it rained for 40 days and nights. Perhaps greenhouse gasses (e.g. greed, gluttony) is another sin of man? Kinda makes you wonder what it is exactly some people deny, ACC or sin.

    Just joking. I’m a man of science of course. I’ll leave religion to religious experts (not just anyone, certainly not former Alaskan governors).

    For anyone who doubts that “Lord” Moncton is certifiably insane, George Monbiot has collected this nice little list of catchy statements from the Viscount of Bedlam:

    No you’re here to irritate me. Everyone has a nuanced role to play. 😉

    That was pretty funny but a little sad too. It’s tough to be sandbagged by a fact-laden interviewer with a camera, but Monckton nailed her. Nevertheless, she gets some kudos from me, because she remained pleasant throughout and she has that beautiful Scandinavian bone structure.

    The one thing Monckton did show was that ManBearPig believers (and environmentalists in general) are members of a cult whose beliefs are entirely faith-based.

    “I thought I was here to annoy Ti-Guy?”

    And I am here to bring out the murderous rage in Ti-Guy.

  16. Ti-Guy

    Much like a mosquito…

  17. Guzzeuntite

    I have yet to encounter a mosquito that was filled with murderous rage.

    “…a fact-laden interviewer with a camera”

    Guzz reminds me that Munchausen does serve a useful purpose – he illustrates what a credulous pack of rubes the denidiotsphere is.

    Enjoy.

    “I am told that you have asked the Guardian to instruct me to desist from asking you further questions, on the grounds of your grave ill-health.”

    Hahahahahaha!

  19. Guzzeuntite

    “Guzz reminds me that Munchausen does serve a useful purpose – he illustrates what a credulous pack of rubes the denidiotsphere is.”

    Geez. Chill. Out. If you prefer, read my comment, putting quotation marks around the phrase “fact-laden.”

    By the way, where did you come up with the unpronounceable word “denidiotsphere,” Gaia worshipper?

    Talk about awkward. I bet someone here can come up with better.

    I’ll start: “Clear-thinkers.”

  20. Guzzeuntite

    One last thing, Lenny. Wouldn’t it be much more appropriate to say that ManBearPig believers suffer from Munchausen syndrome? You believe Mother Earth is injured and suffering and the whole world must come together to “do something about it.” Hell, you can even say that you hysterics suffer from Munchausen syndrome by proxy. That makes you really sick puppies.

  21. lenny

    RT,

    I watched the whole thing, and sure enough Munchausen lied from start to finish. But the woman he was interviewing didn’t seem to believe a word of it. And she didn’t even have the benefit of knowing what a laughingstock he is.
    So why do you call her “gullible”?

  22. Guzzeuntite

    So why do you call her “gullible”?

    So why do you call her “gullible”?

    Because she is naïve, susceptible, easy to fool, innocent of the facts, easy to fleece, over-trusting, and credulous.

    Very unsettling, this. I was about to offer up one of my thrice-daily prayers to Al Gore, when this lord put me off my thrall. I guess I’ll have to bump the number of daily prayers to four. I think that’s change I can believe in.
