Withdrawal From Paris Climate Change Accord is Racist

Because it’s 2020 and this is where we are. You must sign onto the global leftist orthodoxy or you’re racist.

It’s official – in 100 days the United States will formally withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. The impact of Donald Trump’s decision, taken three years ago, is already being felt by environmental justice communities.

Racism is the driving force behind why certain people and places face disproportionate environmental exposure to toxic substances, adverse climate change effects, Covid-19 infections and deaths. This raises the question: was withdrawing from the Paris agreement also a racist decision? How will this morally incomprehensible policy change affect Black, Latinx, Indigenous and other communities of color?


So, ask yourself: if the first group of people in the US to truly benefit from efforts to decrease global warming emissions by participating in the Paris agreement are people of color, what else can we call this but environmental racism and willful neglect?

    Liberal Privilege.

  2. Kevin Scheunemann

    Liberal privilege AND patriarchy.

    Lobs are awful.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann

    “Libs are awful”

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    There are numerous studies, scientific papers, etc. that describe how the poor, minorities, and native people around the world are more likely to be adversely by CC/GW than more prosperous folks.  Were you curious you could look some up (I did), actually read some, and form an opinion based on reality.  Or you could continue to use your knee-jerk reaction.  Your choice.

  5. jjf

    I’ll bet $100 on “more knee jerk reactions.”

  6. Mar

    Well, Le Roi, I also studied the issue and came up with the fact climate change is a hoax.
    And when the world ends, minorities and women will be harmed the most.

  7. jjf

    Le Roi, see, he’s an independent researcher who finds stuff on the Internets.

  8. Mar

    Well, at least I am not a racist troll who repeats the radical liberal line like yourself.
    Still waiting for the racist jokes you tell and readily admit you tell.

  9. jjf

    Show me where I said that, Mar.

  10. Le Roi du Nord

    Well mar, I’d love to see what you “studied” to come up with that conclusion.

  11. Mar

    jjf, you told Dad, I believe, everyone tells racist jokes.
    And I assume everybody also includes you.

  12. jjf

    Again – show me what leads you to keep repeating that.

  13. Mar

    Just using your words, jjf.
    Do you disavow your comment?

  14. Mar

    So, Le Roi, how many predictions from the climate change believers have come true?
    How come most of the rich climate changers believers live their lives like it isn’t happening. Start with Al Gore please.
    We’ll start with that?

  15. Le Roi du Nord

    And of course, folks like you will deny facts, as predicted.

    “I also studied the issue and came up with the fact climate change is a hoax.”

  16. jjf

    Mar, point me to where I said that.

  17. Mar

    Right Le Roi and science was wrong about the Chinese virus.
    You deny facts but believe in unicorns.
    I believe in facts and think unicorns are made up.

  18. Mar

    Sorry, jjf, I’ve been saying this for a month and now you want me to back over thousands of posts.
    Wring, idiot.
    You owned it until now, now deal with your racism.

  19. Le Roi du Nord

    What facts did I deny,mar?

    And no, I don’t believe in unicorns. You are lying again.

  20. Mar

    No, you may not believe in unicorns but you believe in fantasy science.
    Barnum was right. There is a sucker born every minute and sucker, thy name is Le Roi.

  21. Le Roi du Nord

    No mar, I don’t believe in “fantasy science “. You are lying again.

  22. jjf

    Mar, is that how this works?  You can assert something without evidence, and because I didn’t jump every time you said something ridiculous, therefore It’s True?  Wow.

  23. jjf

    Is this it, Mar?

  24. Mar

    Le Roi, sorry but you do. You fell for the fake science with the Chinese virus.
    And the items mentioned mean squat because this is happening over a short term period. Things like this has happened at other times during the Earth’s lifetime.

  25. Mar

    jjf, yes it is.

  26. Mar

    For the record, Le Roi, I believe the so-called climate change is cyclical. The things happening today happened in years/centuries past.
    Mother Nature is way to powerful to be changed by mere humans.
    And no, I also don’t believe that we should just dirty up the environment. Sure, keep it clean, but do not destroy the economy.
    And finally, how come people like you and your ilk go after the US when other countries are much,much worse. Riddle me that, Le Roi.

  27. jjf

    Mar, so when I said:

    It’s not misdirection.  I’m just repeating Owen’s question.  Step right up with your crass jokes!  Or racist jokes!  Who among you can claim that you have never told or laughed at a crass or racist joke? Are we not allowed crude humor any more?

    You think it’s me, right?

    Here’s what Owen said:

    Crass? Yep. Racist? Nope. Who among you can claim that you have never told or laughed at a crass joke? Are we not allowed crude humor any more? The Outrage Mob has no sense of humor and they don’t want you to have one either.

    What kind of mental twist compels you to repeat, again and again, that I like to tell racist jokes?

  28. Jason

    >You can assert something without evidence, and because I didn’t jump every time you said something ridiculous, therefore It’s True?


    Just like the creator of “White Fragility”?  Just like what you refer to as “Systemic Racism”?  Just like the constant haranguing from nutjob Liberals – such as yourself – that say “If you don’t do something about racism, you’re racist!”?


    Yeah man, that’s part of your Liberal Privilege – Assert something without evidence and if you don’t actively do something to counter what I’ve asserted, you’re part of it”.


    You probably don’t even realize what a fucking hypocrite you are about it.


  29. Tuerqas

    There are numerous studies, scientific papers, etc. that describe how the poor, minorities, and native people around the world are more likely to be adversely by CC/GW than more prosperous folks.  Were you curious you could look some up (I did), actually read some, and form an opinion based on reality.  Or you could continue to use your knee-jerk reaction.  Your choice.

    Normally I would say racism is based on believing in one’s superiority or acting against any group of people that share the physical trait of skin color.  Wealth is not a skin color (classism).  Ideals are not skin color (bigotry).  To believe that Trump removed the US from the PCA is somehow race related rather than money related, is patently ridiculous to me.  My choice,  as you asked above, is to fully dismiss the posit of racism in this issue as a misnomer.

    Liberals just want to use the term racism (incorrectly) because it is a hot topic for the upcoming election (and is the term that has been indoctrinated into the schools as the great boogeyman that replaced communism).  It is the term they have laid the groundwork for in school curricula.

    It is historical fact that liberals win a lot more elections at every level if there is an emotionally charged topic at the time of election.  These demonstrations and ‘peace’ walks WILL continue until the election and will drop off dramatically as soon as it is over because the organizers will disappear, their real purpose of getting Dems elected will be complete.

    Quick proof?  Enter ‘Baltimore riots’ in your search engine.  You get date choices of 1812, 1861, 1868, 2015, 2016 and 2020.  1861 was about ending slavery, and 2015 was when Freddie Gray was killed (2016 was when Freddie Gray demonstrations/riots/marches ended…just before the elections).  All the rest were election year riots.  This tactic is not new.  There are dozens of examples of fatal Baltimore police brutalities in all the other years too, but election years are when they are kept in the public eye.  Emotion gets a Democrat elected.  Racism is very emotional, classism (for some incomprehensible reason) is not.  We have a huge classism problem, but Dems vote for Dems and Reps vote for Reps because the upper most class owns media and most of the Government and keeps you all looking at everything but the rapidly growing divide.

    Did we break away from the PCA because of classism?  Absolutely, in my opinion.

  30. Mar

    Umm, jjf, Owen didn’t say anything about racist jokes.
    You did.
    Own up to it or disown it.

  31. jjf

    You’re getting closer, Mar.  Yes, I added a word to Owen’s words.  as I said right there.  For effect.

    Would you like to stand up and admit your crass jokes then?

  32. Mar

    Oh, I have told crass jokes but not racist.
    So, you admit you lied and tell racist jokes.
    Nice character, jjf.

  33. Jason

    Just look at all the ignorant discharge jjf left all over!

  34. jjf

    Mar, why would you ask me a question, but also say something like “nice character” as if I had already answered?  It’s like you are pre-disposed.

  35. Jason

    I dont see a question Leroy Jr. More ignorant discharge.

  36. Le Roi du Nord


    Your rantings are those of someone with a tenuous grasp of science, let alone reality. You are free to believe whatever you want, but denying the facts don’t make you any more credible.

  37. Mar

    Facts? Seriously Le Roi. You believe in models and pixie dust.
    I look at actual facts. That are here now.
    You believe what you want but remember how foolish you looked when the Chinese virus started.

  38. Jason

    He also cites studies that show that wearing a mask is effective against Covid…  but lets see if he accepts this study…



    From the CDC, and with one hell of study range, 1946-2018.  Note that Influenza and Covid virus are roughly the same size range.  Odd that they can save millions with Covid, and yet the CDC studies shows “NO SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION” in the transmission rate of Influenza.  But all I hear is how wearing a mask is Patriotic.

    Face Masks

    In our systematic review, we identified 10 RCTs that reported estimates of the effectiveness of face masks in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infections in the community from literature published during 1946–July 27, 2018. In pooled analysis, we found no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks (RR 0.78, 95% CI 0.51–1.20; I2 = 30%, p = 0.25) (Figure 2).

  39. Mar

    Silence is golden, Racist jjf.
    You don’t renounce your racist statement.
    So, come on, tell us your racist jokes, jjf.
    And where is the weekend Klan meeting this weekend?

  40. Le Roi du Nord

    “remember how foolish you looked when the Chinese virus started”

    Sorry mar, but you mistook me for the current occupant of the WH, who hasn’t made a correct call yet on corona virus:

    And you should really be the last person on earth (maybe tied with k) to call out others for looking foolish.  You still haven’t offered up an obituary for Justice Alito……

  41. Mar

    Well, Le Roi, I hope you get holiday pay for Easter Sunday.
    And yes, you were completely wrong on the Chinese virus.
    And President Trump was able to get ventilators, create hospitals, put travel bans, took away the bureaucracy to create a vaccine and yes, the drug Trump touts does work if properly used.
    How many hospitals were overrun by the Chinese virus?
    Answr: None.
    Meanwhile, your hero, Senile Joe Biden is cowering in the corner in the basement of his. Counting the spiders that are down there.
    Kind of like you.

  42. Le Roi du Nord


    Are you saying all those quotes (remember what ” ” means) are inaccurate?  Or that trump was speaking in a different language understood only by him?  Or that you are sorely mistaken about who was wrong.

    And yes hospital ERs and ICUs  were packed due the virus, and no the drug trump promotes has no verifiable beneficial value in treating corona virus.

  43. Mar

    Gee Le Roi, the ICUs hit capacity.
    So what?
    Did anybody get turned away?
    You realize you can convert other hospital inpatient rooms/beds into ICU beds right?
    I’m sure you knew that.
    Just another false story by CNN brought to us by Fake Le Roi.

  44. Randall Flagg

    Le Roi:

    When I started posting here Mar said he and others here regularly criticize Trump.  Talk about fake news :)

    Instead they never criticize Trump.  Everything is someone else’s fault.  Any of his lies are OK.

    It’s almost like they have a double standard.


  45. Le Roi du Nord


    Exactly.  Denial in it’s finest form.

  46. jjf

    Silence is golden, masked Le Roi.

    You don’t renounce your masked statement.

    So, come on, tell us your mask jokes, Le Roi.

    And where is the weekend mask meeting this weekend?

    If the hospitals were full it means our lack of masks is working, checkmate!

  47. Mar

    More false news Le Roi.
    Patients were diverted, not refused treatment.
    So, the patients went to another hospital.
    This happens a lot in big cities.
    Even in Milwaukee,where it happened a lot until they put a rule in place to stop it.
    But nice try.

  48. Mar

    Still no intelligent posts from jjf yet. Still wondering if it will ever happen.
    When it comes to posting something intelligent, jjf is still a virgin.

  49. jjf

    Take my virginity, Mar.  Be gentle.

  50. Le Roi du Nord

    Here is a great quote from Tom Nichols (2017) regarding the attack on knowledge:

    “the United States is now a country obsessed with the worship of its own ignorance”, and “proud of not knowing things”.

    Fits mar and his ilk perfectly.

  51. Le Roi du Nord

    And a great example of Nichols quote:

    “If we tested less, there would be less cases.”

  52. Mar

    Quoting a Never Trump supporter Le Roi? Why, how brave you are.
    But yet you believe in false models.
    You are a sheeple with few moral values.
    You don’t look at facts but believe in false science.
    And you still have not answered the question:
    If global climate change is real and a crisis, then why does Al Gore have a mansion and boat that pollute to no end.
    Why do celebrities fly all over the world in their private jets to lecture on climate change?
    You have nothing.

  53. Le Roi du Nord

    No mar, I quoted an established expert in foreign affairs, specializing on Russia, a well regarded and published author, and a faculty member of the US Naval War College, who earned a PhD at Georgetown.  It doesn’t take a brave person to recognize intelligence and expertise.  What is your excuse?

    Could you provide some of the “false science” you keep referring to?

    If mail in voting is a sure-fire recipe for fraud, why do all the trumps, and many republican members of congress vote by mail?

  54. Mar

    “If mail in voting is a sure-fire recipe for fraud, why do all the trumps, and many republican members of congress vote by mail?”
    Changing the subject because you cannot win.
    And if you don’t know the difference, well, then you would be too stupid to understand the difference.
    Such a waste of your 4 brain cells.

  55. Le Roi du Nord

    And then there is this:

    “A top official in the Trump administration’s Covid-19 response effort said Sunday there is no evidence that hydroxychloroquine is an effective treatment for the virus, despite President Donald Trump’s continued promotion of the anti-malaria drug”.
    “In an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” administration testing czar Brett Giroir said he could not recommend hydroxychloroquine because trials “do not show any benefit.”

  56. Le Roi du Nord

    “Changing the subject because you cannot win.”

    No mar, I was responding to your question, and pointing out the hypocrisy inherent in your argument.  Try again.

  57. Mar

    Tell, me Le Roi, when did you graduate from clown college or did you drop out?

  58. Le Roi du Nord

    Neither one, mar.  When I saw that they had accepted you for the freshman class I felt I should attend a better institution of higher learning.

  59. dad29

    attend a better institution of higher learning.

    With all that education, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy, you should be able to tell us about how Christianity stole Easter.  We’ve only been waiting for your revelations for a month or so.

  60. Le Roi du Nord

    Look it up dud, there are a number of articles on the subject.  Northern European pagans, spring solstice, etc., you name it, christianity can steal it.
