“The dangers of bone-headed beliefs” is the name of this piece by Sydney Morning Herald columnist Richard Glover. Perhaps he didn’t realize that he was aiming the Panzerfaust at his own head, when he wrote:
Surely it’s time for climate-change deniers to have their opinions forcibly tattooed on their bodies.
Not necessarily on the forehead; I’m a reasonable man. Just something along their arm or across their chest so their grandchildren could say, ”Really? You were one of the ones who tried to stop the world doing something? And why exactly was that, granddad?”
On second thoughts, maybe the tattooing along the arm is a bit Nazi-creepy.
Gosh, ya think? Between this and the anti-circumcision guys in San Francisco with their seemingly Der ewige Jude-inspired comic book, I missed the memo: when did Mein Kampf go from being a warning to being an instruction manual for the left?
