One-Liner Wednesday — Politics and Hatred

“Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organization of hatreds.”

Henry Adams, American historian, descended from two U.S. Presidents

Henry Adams died in 1918, and I find that this quote from him was incredibly prescient, given when he said it. It’s certainly an accurate reflection of the hatred displayed in politics in America today.

And if that isn’t controversial enough for you, let me suggest that if you were to substitute the word “religion” for the word “politics,” the statement is equally as true.

    Both versions, equally true. It’s insidious how they pit groups against each other so that hatred of “them” rings as more acceptable than the hatred of “us.”

        Natural News.EU parliament declares fossil fuel to be “green” energy as climate change narrative collapses.
        The EU parliament just announced a decision that’s causing the fraudulent climate change narrative to self-destruct. “EU parliament backs labeling gas and nuclear investments as green,” reads a Reuters headline from yesterday. “The European Parliament on Wednesday backed EU rules labeling investments in gas and nuclear power plants as climate-friendly.”

        The fraudulent, junk science narrative of “climate change” has caused western nations (including the USA) to dismantle much of their fossil fuel infrastructure over the last 20 years.

        Suddenly, European nations are panicking to try to rebuild their energy infrastructure. But since they’ve officially blocked most funding for non-green energy projects, the only way to get funds to rebuild fossil fuel infrastructure is to declare fossil fuels to be “green.”

        Never forget that the “green” movement is part of the globalist depopulation agenda to starve billions of human beings to death while collapsing economies around the world.

Now my question actually is “Where is FPQ?” I know I wasn’t ‘here’ yesterday but came back with my wits all sharpened and everything to answer one. Inquiring minds.. 😉 Thanks Fandango
