Lefty Orwellian’s Censor Free Thought, Free Speech – And Prove Healthcare Can Be Taken Away

Published by at 1:13 am under All General Discussions,Obamacare

Long title, but lots of disturbing incidents have been occurring in this country recently. Apparently in the State of Oregon free thought and free speech are now under attack from The State – bringing the apt comparison to Islamo Fascism and their usual approach to debate (i.e., destroy the dissenters). Read this story and wonder how this ever happened in America:

We learned over the weekend that chemist Nickolas Drapela, PhD has been summarily fired from his position as a “Senior Instructor” in the Department of Chemistry. The department chairman Richard Carter told him that he was fired but would not provide any reason. Subsequent attempts to extract a reason from the OSU administration have been stonewalled. Drapela appears to have been highly competent and well-liked by his students. Some have even taken up the fight to have him reinstated.

What could possibly have provoked the OSU administration to take precipitous action against one of their academics who has been on their staff for ten years, just bought a house in Corvallis, and has four young children (one with severe medical problems)? Dr. Drapela is an outspoken critic of the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming, the official religion of the State of Oregon, the Oregon Democratic Party, and Governor John Kitzhaber.

Five years ago, Oregon State Climatologist George Taylor went around quietly saying that he was not a believer. Then Governor Ted Kulongoski and many faculty at OSU including Dr. Jane Lubchenco made life impossible for Taylor, and he retired. (Lubchenco is now head of NOAA in the Obama administration.)

More here.

A purge is in process in Oregon, led by self-proclaimed champions of ‘open minds‘. These actions cannot go unchallenged or without investigation. It proves again that the panderers of human-driven global warming are truly losing the scientific debate, and have moved onto methods more akin to power-mad Nazi’s and Eastern European Communists. The fact is, this family has a dire need for health care, and those in government who disagreed with this man’s legitimate views – and him voicing those views – have put one of their children at dire risk:

I’m not sure how I will support my family at this point. We just bought a house in Corvallis. I have four kids, one of whom has a rare, blood disorder and requires regular trips to Doernbecher’s Children’s Hospital for treatment. Now we will be without health insurance.

This family should become the poster family for Romney and the GOP. They should be held up as an example of the two-faced lies pushed by the Democrats and Liberals. Romney and the GOP could do to the national left what Walker did to the Wisconsin left by simply exposing the tyranny behind the small minds and uninformed positions of liberalism.

Global Warming is not happening because of human generated CO2 – that much is CRYSTAL CLEAR from the data.  CO2 is rising but temperatures (both land and air) have stopped rising, as have sea levels. Since we know the Earth has warmed since the Little Ice Age, and human’s have experienced times as warm or warmer (i.e., The Mediaval Warming and Roman Warm Periods), and since we can correlate what sparse temperature records we have clearly to solar and ocean circulation cycles, it has become a moot point regarding CO2 as the driver behind temperature.

So what is all this about? Why destroy a family in Oregon? This is why, and it is something everyone must watch and pass on:

There is another effort afoot to control humanity, to destroy the individual and replace them with The State. And I believe the American People understand this, and that is why we have seen the rise of the Tea Party and the political implosion by the left since 2010.

The left forgets that Americans are doggedly independent.  When given the choice between a challenging life created by their own toil, sweat and decisions or a life of begging for government handouts, We The People always reject the gilded cage. For all their siren song about fairness and making the rich pay, the left simply use that PR crap as a way to gain wealth for themselves, and live out the pathetic existence of faux moral superiority.

It sickens me to see this family destroyed by petty and inferior minds holding positions of power. This family did nothing but have a strong voice in opposition to leftist theories. Theories weak and broken under the scrutiny of the scientific method. And for this crime of speaking to petty power, their livelihood – and yes one of their own lives – is now at risk.

The State must be stopped. This crime must be exposed and the criminals brought to justice. We either save America for our children, or we let it die with a whimper. Some strong elections can end this madness without resorting to this kind of oppression. Through voting, we can right these wrongs.

Now we just have to see if Romney and GOP can turn this incident into a rallying cry for freedom, or if they drop the ball on this as they have other opportunities to actually make a stand We The People can applaud.

BTW, also checkout this second post by JoNova regarding the UN’s agenda 21 – an effort to destroy the essence of America and the free world.

    Watch closely the Contempt of Congress actions against Holder! Conventional wisdom is the Repunks have not the will to push this! If those who allowed Scooter Libby to be jailed, Martha Stewart to do time, Wesley Snipes the same and grill a baseball player and all the oil execs, those who stood silent while Palin was libeled over a mad mans shooting rampage in Tuscon, if these Repunks cannot and do not push that to the limit and demand jail time for the perps then we will know who else the Tea Party needs to eliminate from the national dialogue!

    Who among you thinks Romney and his election team have the will to make an issue of the above when Cholly Wrangle walked after blatant tax evasion and lying to congress, same as Geithner, Kagan and Sotomayor and a host of other Rat appointees.
    Political expediency trumps justice and in the minds of the neutered Repunks political expediency demands kid gloves for the Rats who infest DC!
    The Dems have no fear because the Repunks have not the will!

    Throw the BUMS out all of em!

    This Oregon State attack on free speech is apparently typical of the Administration and some of the professors there. More is on the web here: http://oregonstateoutrage.squarespace.com/

    Thanks for the link to this story. Looks like Oregon truly is turning into an SSR. We all need to speak up and make our voices heard. If there are any OSU alumni out there reading this blog then please contact your alma mater and let them know your alumni support will disappear. I’ve already done this with my Graduate alma mater – Stanford – for similar infractions.

    if we do not fight now with all of our forces against the evil of liberalism/progressivism/socialism, later it will be too late.

    What is happening now is the imposition of a slow communist revolution upon the American people, in which an opinion becomes an offense, punishable by….(fill in the blanks).

    Comes as no surprise to me. Layman, OR isn’t “turning” into an SSR… it’s been one for some time. But instead of being overt, it’s more of a Stepford Wives SSR. They smile benignly, and gently ostracize you from whatever inner circle they feel you don’t belong.

    There’s many reasons I pen my political commentary under a cyber handle…. not the least of which is the ol’ saying, “you’ll never work in this town again” mentality if you are found to be a red speck in the sea of blue that is Oregon.

    Unfortunately, Dr Drapela dwells and thrives in the belly of the beast. Another of those beasts, U of O, regurgitated Kari Norgaard, a ociology and environmental studies professor who stated that skeptics “must be recognized and treated” as an aberrant sociological behavior just last week.

    To give you a smile, this is the face of the one calling many of the rest of us “aberrant”…

    oh but the captions just fly thru the imagination…. but I digress.

    Tho I’m not surprised at Dr. Drapela’s fate, I was pleasantly surprised that he could find enough students in Corvallis to even raise an eyebrow at his cowardly expulsion. Perhaps there is hope in the Oregon youth yet… even if not enough.

    If he plans to stay with campus life, I fear there will be little improved opportunities for him in Oregon. And what with the general political makeup of the academia nationally, perhaps not in other states either.

    With a bit of luck and media push, Dr. Drapela could make the talking head rounds, and hopefully cash in on some fame to tide him over. Maybe pen a book for the future about the politics of science, and get a contract as a media consultant. If awareness to the counter AGW culture is his quest, he is likely to be more effective with that path, than on a Corvallis campus. I certainly wish him the best.

    Dang… forgot to close that tag again… so very sorry. And do check out the photo of Prof Norgaard at the link. Just not while you’re dining.
