Forget the first Amendment, it no longer applies when it comes to global warming.  Silencing seems to be the prevailing method for dealing with ideological opponents. On College campuses this type of intimidation is happening all of the time.

Here’s the story from the Washington Free Beacon:

The attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands is targeting dozens of conservative and libertarian organizations in a racketeering lawsuit against climate change skeptics that has been widely described as an effort to silence political opponents.

In a subpoena issued in March, the office of USVI attorney general Claude Walker demanded from Exxon Mobil copies of communications between the oil company and 90 different political and policy organizations “and any other organizations engaged in research or advocacy concerning Climate Change or policies.”

The subpoena was part of a national, coordinated legal campaign by state attorneys general and left-wing advocacy groups to use the legal system against companies and organizations that disagree with and advocate against Democratic policies to address global climate change.

Response: This story was also reported in the Wall Street Journal last month if one wants a more mainline source. What is really disturbing about this is the obvious breach of the First Amendment and the attitude among global warming activists that the end somehow justifies the means and the ignoring of Constitutional rights.

Look for similar tactics to be used by progressive activists against religious liberty and conservative Bible believing institutions and churches in the future.                *Top
