Shut Up, they explained

Hippies and warmists don’t like to be questioned.

In their world, there is only one view allowed.  Theirs.  Should you dare disagree, you are deviant. Diversity is desired in nature but abhored by the left.  Dissenters must be discredited, or hounded, or censored.  What dissenters must not be, is heard.

What hippies, warmists or lefties cannot shout down, they shut down.  The debate is over, the revolution will not be televised.

Phelim McAleer is no stranger to the censorious nature of warmists.  Gasland director Josh Fox has added his name to the rogues gallery of agenda-driven propagandists that will. not. be. questioned. Fox has used the 26 seconds of Gasland footage McAleer used to claim copyright and shut down the dissent.  Phelim explains:

Fox’s excuse is a breach of copyright. In a video that is 3:10 minutes long, we used 26 seconds of Gasland only to show how Fox was being unethical and misleading. It is a classic case of “fair use” of someone’s work for the purpose of criticism and is totally legally allowed if not encouraged under fair use law.

But Fox does not want any criticism. He does not want any freedom of speech.

We now have to hire lawyers to try and have our journalism restored to our own YouTube channel. In the meantime we have put the video up on Vimeo (a YouTube rival). You can see it here until Fox and his lawyers try to force Vimeo to pull it down.  We will fight all these attempts to silence our journalism. We have been here before. The Society of Environmental Journalists turned off my mic for asking Al Gore tough questions. The UN used armed security to try and stop me asking difficult questions of a scientist and a politician at the UN climate conference in Copenhagen. And environmentalists attacked me on live television for daring to question the orthodoxy.

And the makers of the Age of Stupid, another eco-disaster fantasy, had me removed from their press gallery for asking the “wrong questions”. They also took legal action to have the blog showing their behavior removed from the internet.

They did not succeed and Josh Fox will not succeed.

Josh Fox may or may not succeed in his efforts to prevent McAleer from exposing him as an agit-prop hipster.

While it lasts, here’s the Vimeo version of Phelim’s film.

**UPDATE: Fox pulled the video from Vimeo, but Phelim has it self hosted here.**

Fox’s tactics are not new, he’s just the latest hippie hipster to walk the path.

Other examples of the Shut Up, they explained prefer censorship over debate.

The two MMs have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I’ll delete the file rather than send to anyone

Censorship and left-leaning causes are no strangers because it’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

The truth will set you free, and that won’t do at all.
