Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada – aka President Bieber – has put “climate change deniers” in the same category as “supporters of female genital mutilation.”
He made the comparison in a speech to 10,000 New York University graduates at Yankee Stadium.
According to the Canadian Press, he got especially loud cheers whenever he talked about Canada’s refugee program, human rights or, as here, the legitimacy of climate change.
Here is what he had to say on the last of these:
He mentioned advocates of female genital mutilation in the same breath as deniers of climate change — people who hold viewpoints that will never be valid, no matter how long they have been expressing those views or how loudly they do so.
As Spencer Fernando notes here, this is a disgusting and divisive comparison.
“Deniers” of “climate change” – who don’t deny that climate changes, by the way – are merely people who question the validity of an increasingly shaky hypothesis which has been falsified by real world evidence.
