Pop Quiz: “Progressivese” and John Kerry’s Speech

It’s time to test what you have learned about how to listen to Progressives when they speak.  Here is your first assignment.  Read this story while you apply everything I have tried to teach/explain to you since I have been on the RNL:

Kerry Gives First Foreign Policy Speech … on Climate Change

Here’s your test question:

“We as a nation must have the foresight and courage to make the investments necessary to safeguard the most sacred trust we keep for our children and grandchildren: an environment not ravaged by rising seas, deadly superstorms, devastating droughts, and the other hallmarks of a dramatically changing climate,” said Kerry, according to prepared remarks.

“And let’s face it – we are all in this one together. No nation can stand alone. We share nothing so completely as our planet. When we work with others – large and small – to develop and deploy the clean technologies that will power a new world, we’re also helping create new markets and new opportunities for America’s second-to-none innovators and entrepreneurs to succeed in the next great revolution.”

What does he really mean by this? (This will be your only hint: Woodrow Wilson and the concept of the moral equivalent to war.  Now post your answers in the comment section below.)

  1. You know. Now that I think of it … back in the 70′s we were worried about a global ice age. Now, it’s all about the “fever” the Earth has. Can’t these crazy (censored) liberals make up their god (censored) minds?

    Speaking of fevers …. I wonder if ole John Kerry or that other dolt (Al Gore) even have a clue to what the normal body temperature of the Earth is.

    I doubt it. Watching them stammer over the question would be hilarious though.

      • Ah, but the quiz was already answered, sir. I didn’t feel the need to copy and paste the correct answer. LOL

        Instead, I just decided to expand the conversation a bit. And frankly, I should get extra credit for doing so. :D

          • “investments” – More spending.

            “necessary to safeguard” – apply more regulation

            “the most sacred trust we keep for our children and grandchildren” – demagoguery

            “No nation can stand alone” – socialist plea.

            “we’re also helping create new markets” – government take over the private sector

            “new opportunities for America’s second-to-none innovators and entrepreneurs” – more “Solyndra” spending.

            “collective action” – a rallying call to socialist/collectivists

            “unprecedented changes in its population – another great opportunity at our fingertips” – population control … however you choose to obtain it, and likely targeting those with different ideology, to be crushed underneath their benevolent feet.

            You see Joe, I get it. Kerry (like the other crazy liberals/progressives) are again recasting their ideology in order to send a message more acceptable to the uninformed, and dim-witted. Take advantage of every opportunity is their way …. which is why I posted what I did earlier. So let’s ask Mr. Kerry … what is the normal body temperature for the planet?

            He won’t have an answer.

  2. New World Order by “One World Ruler”. If you are around to see him in person or on TV you will not be having a happy day.

  3. He means we need to spend more money on fighting climate change by helping other counties with solar, wind, etc. He wants us to give our homes, cars, etc to people from 3rd world countries who will come to US and live our lives while we go to their 3rd world countries and live there for as long as it takes to bring those countries up to US standard of living. It is the only way all us rich, white Americans can make up for eons of oppressing the non-Europeon people in other parts of the world.

    • Trapp,

      Add population reduction and world-government to that and you have nailed it (which is essentially what Agenda 21 is).

      120 Million plus in the 20th Century was not enough for these people. This time, they are thinking more like 4-7 BILLION!!!

      Yes, they are THAT evil.

  4. Joe,
    Thank You. I have lived in the SF Bay Area since 1984 and I speak prog quite fluently. We have been debating the whole world government issue at the dog park for years now. Of course, I’m the dissenting voice. No matter how much the Progs try to explain the joys of their new world order, I’m afraid I’m just too stupid to see the benefits. Oh well!
