Ontario Environment Minister Glen Murray blames rise of ISIS on climate change

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

The Ontario Minister of the Environment and Climate Change blamed the rise of ISIS on climate change. But he's not alone.

He joins a choir of progressive left wing apologists on this very important issue.

The minister, Glen Murray, right after the terror attacks in Paris tweeted this: Iraq's had warm temperatures recently. Isis is gaining ground. Coincidence?

That tweet is crazy. But it is somewhat expected.

This is the new narrative of the Left: the Islamic State isn't really Islamic. And if that excuse doesn't work, well climate change did it.

Democrat Presidential Candidate Martin O'Malley blamed the rise of Islamic terror on climate change. Fellow Presidential nomination hopeful Bernie Sanders did, too. Even President Obama chose the important and symbolic event of a coast guard graduation to hijack with climate change fear mongering.

Closer to home, Canadian Foreign Affairs minister Stephane Dion said climate change is the greatest threat Canada will face this century.

Are you seeing a trend? I sure am.

These progressives just can't bring themselves to say "Radical Islam." They’ll scapegoat the weather instead. How can anyone trust them to address the threats to our national security when they refuse to name the problem?

Climate change won't make you commit mass murder. Climate change won't make you buy and sell sex slaves or behead infidels.

But radical Islam just might.

This just in — climate change directly linked to reduced brain function of political class.

Right on the nerve of truth Sheila!
I am praying people have eyes to see and ears to hear!

Here in Ontario we have been victims of the McGuinty/Wynne crime syndicate for over a decade now. I don’t know what can be done to wake voters up. Scandal after scandal. Millions in secret payments to unions. Their Green Energy plan is a dismal failure. We’re losing millions almost daily having to sell off unused hydro. Yet, they insist on blundering ahead.

Who knew? Turns out climate change skeptics are the real enemies of all we hold dear. All this time I thought it was a perversion of Islam.

Sure, you can draw a correlation between drought and famine and the unrest of desperate people in a mass migration. But, as Ms. Reid says, none of that explains the less than human behaviour of radical Islamists. I’m pretty sure throwing gays off a building or acid in the faces of little girls won’t solve global warming.

I am not that genius but not crazy! They are too obsessed with this climate change that are bogus, specially that Mr. Suzuki what Ezra is saying.. Tsktsk…. and people are just believing!?!

Yes, of course he does. Liberals also blame guns for crime, spoons for making people fat, and pencils for spelling mistakes.

Well, Turkey Tits Trudeau picked ‘em. So we can’t really expect much rationality coming into play. Here’s the ploy: Mention climate change at any opportunity, no matter how lunatic it sounds, to push that it is a relevant “threat”. And, downplay Islamic terrorism at every opportunity to suggest they are not a relevant threat. Any excuse that can be made to suggest that, will be voiced. In this case, climate change directly negatively effected these men (and woman), and they were compelled to kill… because weather… that’s why.
Don’t be so “racist”, these innocent people were victims here, they were puppets of the real evil here. Climate change kills, guys, this is serious.

How do these politicians travel to and from home and run errands? Bicycle? Paddle Boat? By Foot? Inefficient Fossil Fuel Powered Mass Transit? Fossil Fuel Generated Power for an Electric Vehicles? Fossil Fuel powered Vehicles? Almost Certainly the last, and lots of it. Global Trolling Warriors!

Nobody here in Winnipeg misses Glen Murray. We are all happy that he quit his position as mayor to run for federal politics, only to lose out to a conservative.
commented 2015-11-19 17:05:40 -0500
Maybe the climate is changing maybe it isn’t, but no amount of solar panels or wind turbines will replace fossil fuel electrical generation. Until the holy grail of cold fusion arrives, there is not much that can be done. One other thing I don’t know if there was a study into this or not but how much of a carbon foot print is made to put up one wind turbine

It’s complete imbeciles like Glen Murray that make asinine statements that climate change (which doesn’t exist as it is intended to mean today) and the rise of ISIS are correlated.

Statements like these reek of hidden liberal agenda. In the US there are despicable democrats stating that terrorist attacks since 9/11 were not caused by muslims.

One has to wonder what sinister hidden agenda awaits the masses when reprobate liberal politicians such as these which are supposed operate a country are in fact trying to “brainwash the masses” with bullshit deluxe to fulfill something else that we can only imagine.

Well since our sissy PM has taken off Canada’s gloves, there should be a lot Canadian soldiers home on Canadian soil now, which is just where we need them to be. I just hope they are working on a plan, and let us rational Canadians that care, in on the plan.

Just new Marxist talking points for the dumbed down masses. The world is screwed, get ready for the big die off

The Ontario Minister of the Environment and Climate Change blamed the rise of ISIS on climate change. Hmmm. Sheila, as you point out, the Democratic presidential candidate debate Bernie Sanders, a self-described socialist and ‘progressive’ declared that climate change is the greatest national security threat America faces and “absolutely… climate change is directly related to the growth of terrorism.” Not difficult to connect the dots. Birds of a feather flock together. Although you have heard the expression “you can’t fix stupid”, I would say that you can’t fix those who have overindulged on Marxist Kool-Aid.

What climate change. ? Massive job killing, poverty creating taxes are what’s behind their lies.

I don’t even know what to say any more . . . .

Trudeau won the election because of climate change, it will get a lot hotter now, like in Hell.
commented 2015-11-19 15:06:49 -0500
I am stunned and outraged that virtually NOBODY says that radical Islam has been killing people 100, 200, 500 years ago etc. This was long before the new religion aka “climate change” came into the picture. Seriously, is there a Conservative politician or even their own Liberal MP with a tiny bit of brains that call them out on this? Just like the USA, they keep saying climate change is our biggest national security issue and somehow the radical Islam is not in the picture.

I don’t believe climate change is responsible ISIS at all. I think it’s the result of a conspiracy between the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.(By the way, I don’t think Santa Claus had any knowledge of this conspiracy)…… World full of lunatics!

Climate change is responsible for the weather being hot.
Climate change is responsible for the weather being cold.
Climate change is responsible for the hurricanes.
Climate change is responsible for the typhoons.
Climate change is responsible for the floods.
Climate change is responsible for all the weather conditions that exist.

But humankinds’ activities has negligibly little to no affect whatsoever on any of it.

What a bunch of crap. Things can’t get dryer there. It has always been a desert and always will be.
However, we need a solution to these fear mongers and doomsday predictors.
Maybe time to get off the grid and let them all kill each other

If we’re really concerned about CO2 emissions, I vote that we stop carbonating any beverage. How much carbon gas — that awful pollutant — do you think that will save from our environment?

INSANE, INSANE, INSANE beaucrats, politicians, environmentalists (notice mental) in the word, union leaders, professors and 39.5% of Canadians who voted for these idiots, we are so passive in this country, perfect for an easy take-over. We are in deep doo-doo.

Kathleen Wynne has said she is looking for new revenue tools, she found one. Glen Murray is a tool! Send sunscreen to ISIS, maybe if they don’t get sunburned they won’t be so mad at us. Oh wait, in their eyes we will still be infidels.

We are all living in Obamaland now . . . . the la la left is way past insane and incompetent . . . . hang on to your a$$ going to be an costly 4 years ! ! !

Climate change is a cult, plain and simple.

Peter – with every crisis, they expect that we will suspend the rational parts of our minds, and just believe anything that they say to be true. Just because they say so! I’m glad that I still have a relatively functioning brain, and to protect it, I no longer crank my radio, I turn it down enough to hear it in the back ground, and then I’m able to tune out the constant bleating of the agenda messages, that normally make my blood boil. I also bought one of those chrome cast devices, and now I keep the pictures on my TV, so that I don’t turn on my TV so often anymore. My grandmother was right about the TV being an idiot box, turning people into idiots! She did forget to mention radio though, as I think that radio is just as mind numbing now. If you control the media, you get to control the message. Thank God for TheRebel!

This was the same tactic used to get rid of Harper and the crazy left think it might work here too.
