Liberal Rag Blames Nigerian Terrorist Kidnapping On Climate Change
May 11, 2014 6:51am PST
Earlier this month, Nigerian terrorists entered a town, set it ablaze and killed 300 of its residents. After thrusting the region into chaos, they then captured 200 schoolgirls who they have since promised to be sold as sex slaves. Now yes, we know that Liberals strive to be “tolerant” of anyone outside of white Christians, but they have recently reached a new low in trying to justify the actions of Muslims.
According to a Liberal Muslim writer, these acts weren’t completed out of terrorism, but as a direct result of global warming.
The group responsible for the senseless deaths and the kidnapping of so many in the name of Allah, falls at the feet of an organization called Boko Haram (which roughly translated means: “Western education is forbidden”). However, the lunacy of the Left has reared its ugly head as the Guardian’s Nafeez Ahmed has attributed the vile deeds of the religion of peace to global warming.
According to Ahmed:
Instability in Nigeria, however, has been growing steadily over the last decade – and one reason is climate change. In 2009, a UK Department for International Development (Dfid) study warned that climate change could contribute to increasing resource shortages in the country due to land scarcity from desertification, water shortages, and mounting crop failures. A more recent study by the Congressionally-funded US Institute for Peace confirmed a “basic causal mechanism” that “links climate change with violence in Nigeria.” The report concludes: “…poor responses to climatic shifts create shortages of resources such as land and water. Shortages are followed by negative secondary impacts, such as more sickness, hunger, and joblessness. Poor responses to these, in turn, open the door to conflict.”
Unfortunately, a business-as-usual scenario sees Nigeria’s climate undergoing “growing shifts in temperature, rainfall, storms, and sea levels throughout the twenty-first century. Poor adaptive responses to these shifts could help fuel violent conflict in some areas of the country.”
According to the late Prof Sabo Bako of Ahmadu Bello University, the 1980s “forerunner” to Boko Haram was the Maitatsine sect in northern Nigeria, whose members included many victims of ecological disasters leaving them in “a chaotic state of absolute poverty and social dislocation in search of food, water, shelter, jobs, and means of livelihood.”
Effectively, what Ahmed is trying to get across here is that unstable weather in the region is making people cranky – sounds like a viable rationale, doesn’t it?
The actions of those that wish to do fellow human beings harm can’t simply be written off and excused with feeble minded and poorly sought out argument. Those who are evil do not deserve the respect or time of day to consider any such justification to their actions as evil does not have the capability to be rationed with.
Sick and twisted minds do heinous things for nothing more than personal gratification – end of story. The fact that someone would go to the extent of even entertaining the motion to justify such actions shows the blindness and utter stupidity that “tolerance” has on a being if allowed to fester long enough.
