Ever notice that liberals criticize conservatives for playing the “politics of fear”? Terrorism, race, whatever — all “fear”-based.
Yet these same liberals who trot out these accusations have no problem trumpeting the world-ending effects of global warming. And they do it to justify government intrusions into the most basic aspects of human life (Seattle’s ban of beach fires comes immediately to mind).
How come when conservatives do it it’s “fear,” but when liberals do it’s just fine and dandy?
