Does anyone know who Ben Eltham is and in what way might he be connected to Professor Quiggin and to Clive Hamilton? Right at this moment he appears to be a lunatic. But if past practice goes to form, we will soon be desensitized to this cultural virus. March 2010, will be the specific date in history when the left lays down and hammers in this historical myth. The historical myth of, in essence a “denialist campaign of harassment and incitement.” We ought to know now that Clive has hatched this plot with at least one other fellow in the ABC.
It began, with not one, but and unprecedented five posts in a row by Clive Hamilton, laying down an entire body of completely ridiculous and delusional lies, which forms a backdrop to what Ben Eltham is saying. I tell you that Ben Eltham grates at the moment. More in shock and surprise then in anger. Ben Eltham come across as an entirely odd fish. But the tenor of these accusations will soon be part of the national ambience.
Bear in mind that Professor Quiggin and Clive Hamilton, once were co-organisers to a petition, that went to pretty much everyone in the economics profession, in either academia or the finance industry. 47 self-selected failed analysts signed the petition organised by Professor Quiggin and Clive Hamilton.
Now Clive is a fool. But I do so wish Professor Quiggin wasn’t a hard leftist. As Louis pointed out he doesn’t understand the scientific method, but once in awhile he makes some decent observations.
Anyhow it is established that the two of them have a familiar line of communication. Now if you think Ben Eltham sounds like some utter lunatic, and he does, check out the often sensible, and once in awhile insightful, Professor Quiggin, over at his own blog.
“Looking over the evidence that is now available, I think there is enough to point to Steven McIntyre as the person, along with the actual hacker or leaker, who bears primary moral responsibility for the crime.”
Always leftist campaigns of this sort roll out in pairs. Forces come in equal and opposite pairs. Likewise these leftist campaigns roll out in such a way as to be doing exactly what they are accusing the right of doing. We see the gist of the new mantra already. It appears that the gist of it is “co-ordianted harassment and incitement”. Which you all may recognize at once with great astonishment, is of course the history of the global warming fraud.
But from now on …. From March 2010 that history will be changed, and small children will be taught that the climate deniers ran a co-ordinated campaign of hate incitement, leading to many deaths and ruined careers.
In the case of McCarthy the witch-hunt against McCarthy and his supporters was rolled out in parallel with a new dispensation which said that matters ran the other way. Instead of McCarthy being the subject of a leftist witch-hunt, the history was laid down that he was co-ordinating a witch-hunt against innocent “liberals” who were doing nothing more than minding their own business, listening to the radio.
Another example of allegedly informed history being laid down at a single moment in time was when Al Gore spoke at “Moveon.org.” Up until then both the Afghanistan and Iraqi invasions had been bitterly opposed on the left. Which would have been alright in my book, had they been opposed for sensible and honest reasons.
But Al Gore laid down the new dispensation to a shocked Moveon.org audience. He determined that the administration ought to be congratulated for their intervention in Afghanistan, but that Iraq, was not merely a bad strategic move. But wrong, illegal, criminal, criminally carried out. And so forth. A different case then that the left made, could be made for at least some of these propositions, one supposes. My point is only to note that the left gets its new strategic marching orders in definite moments in time.
Another example is the campaign kicked off as a result of the collusion between Amy Goodman and Joseph Wilson. What happened is Wilson started a typical leftist campaign, wherein he waged what amounted to psychological warfare to deceive his nation and hurt the war effort. I’m certainly not against an honest pacifism-bias, or campaigns to bring the troop out of harms way, or ideas to do with making ones wars; big and short.
But the subject is leftist campaigns, and the way they usually take on this same structure. So Joseph Wilson and the left wage a campaign of misinformation and lies, in order to deceive the public, for the purpose of hurting the war effort. And what is the mantra and context of that campaign? Its that the Bush administration was waging a war of misinformation and lies, for the purpose of deceiving the public, and that this deception would wind up hurting the national interest.
But Wilson was posing as a patriot. So he deflected his criticism onto Karl Rove and Dick Chaney. Because he was affecting to be MR REPUBLICAN and pretending that he had this notion of the President as HIS PERSONAL commander in chief.
Anyway him and Amy Goodman colluded in this matter. What happened is Joe Wilson went around to all these radical meetings to get the momentum up, gut staying under the radar of the mainstream media. And Goodman would feature Wilson on her radio/video show. Often an excellent show by the way. But she never once had him on as a guest. Although he was a feature of her show leading up to the launching of the new mantra. See he was always ON THE SHOW, but there was no fully provable evidence let to slip through, that Amy Goodman and Joseph Wilson, had met and discussed things. PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY.
Joseph went around stirring up the radical types about this alleged friend of his, who had found out that the administration had lied about 14 words in the State Of the Union Address. This all under the radar. Then later with faux-drama he announced “it was me.” Anyway he lied about everything. He was the first person, to lie on TV, massively more extensively then Bill Clinton.
On Amy’s show, every-time she went to a break she repeated this mantra about the 14 words being a lie. Actually the 14 words were truthful in every way. Literally truthful. True in spirit. The honest truth of it. That was enough to get marxists, on methodone or otherwise, strategically laying down this mantra on blogs, many times every day.
This is a lengthy explanation but my point is this. Clive claimed a co-ordinated campaign of harassment …. We therefore must assume a co-ordinated campaign of harassment, since this is how these things work. If Clive isn’t planning harassment, what he is doing instead, is trying to white-wash the last ten years of harassment against global warming empiricists, by laying down an alternative history.
When Clive first claimed there was a co-ordinated campaign, it struck you all at first as lunacy. You will soon be desensitized to it, as the leftist projectionist campaign is rolled out.
To my knowledge, I’m the only one who has sent nasty emails to people like Clive, Monbiot and Karoly. There is no co-ordination on this side, and the way things work, the accusation of co-ordination is a white-wash for the co-ordination on the left side.
The other thing to note is that repetition by a well-known leftist icon on the left is the code to what the new mantra/campaign will be about. This particular conspiracy required Clive to be given and unprecedented access to 5 posts in a row on an ABC blog. So if matters are true to form it took one or more radical leftists in the ABC, to allow the ABC to be a forum, for Clives new mirroring campaign of lies.
It would certainly be nice to know who lobbied for the decision to give Clive access to 5 posts in more or less 5 days. If you have ever heard leftists accusing various people of coded words and wolf-whistles wonder no more. Its their standard operating procedure of leftist projection. The campaign goes out clothed in mirroring. This is how they work time and again.
