Take A (Mid-Level) Fascist Fuck With You

Back in the halcyon days, I stumbled upon a plan by which we could reduce the influence of the Murkin Fascisti, one fucktard at a time. I suggested a program I called TAFFWY, or "Take A Fascist Fuck With You." By means of this program, I hoped to entice folks with terminal, impendingly fatal illnesses to--instead of spending all their remaining resources to stay alive--devoting those resources to eliminating one or more of the really malign figures in public life who are standing in the way of measures to spare the human species and prevent the further fucking up of the life-world.

Below, via Treehugger blog you would find a "Rolling Stone" list of 12 likely candidates (to which I would add the five Opus Deists on the SCROTUS):
The vast majority of scientists -- even American ones! -- agree that human beings are pumping too much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and that this is causing the global climate to warm. So why aren't we trying to do anything about it? Well, we are. Millions of concerned citizens, climate activists, scientists, business leaders and policymakers understand the grave threat climate change poses, and are actively working to find the best ways to curb our emissions. But these 12 people -- very, very powerful people -- are doing their damnedest to stop them. And it's working.

Here's Rolling Stone's list, the Top 12 Politicians and Execs Blocking Progress on Global Warming -- the abridged edition...

12. Fred Upton -- The moderate-representative-turned-Tea-Party-favorite who now sits as the Chairman of the House Energy Committee. He'll lead the charge in dismantling the EPA.

11. Bjørn Lomborg -- Danish climate skeptic who traffics in making misleading but vaguely believable (to the layperson) claims about global warming, arguing action isn't needed.

10. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) -- Chairman of the House Oversight Committee who's making "investigating" climate scientists who have already been exonerated numerous times one of his chief goals.

9. Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) -- Claims to want to fight climate, but is intent on blocking the EPA, and is integral in keeping the coal industry powerful.

8. Ken Cuccinelli -- "Here's a novel strategy to make sure nobody thinks too hard about the risks of global warming: Criminalize climate science. Cuccinelli, Virginia's ultraright attorney general, is using his prosecutorial power to harass and intimidate those who are raising the alarm about climate change..."

7. Tim Phillips -- As leader of AFP, a corporate front group that funnels cash to the Tea Party, Phillips is on a mission to convince Americans that global warming is a plot hatched by Al Gore to take away their freedom and destroy the economy....

6. Rex Tillerson -- The CEO of Exxon, Tillerson helms the biggest carbon-polluting company in the world. He directs millions towards lobbying against climate action.

5 Tom Donahue -- As head of the US Chamber of Commerce, Donahue is one of the nation's most powerful opponents to climate legislation, directing millions of dollars and untold influence against it.

4. Gregory Boyce -- The owner of the world's largest publicly-owned coal company--the infamous Peabody Coal Company..

3. Sarah Palin, Retired half-term governor, Alaska -- 'Nuff said.

2. Charles and David Koch -- The notorious billionaire brothers who bankroll just about every effort to block climate progress imaginable -- these guys need no introduction. (In case they do, see this brief synopsis of their wide-ranging influence)

1. Rupert Murdoch -- "No one does more to spread dangerous disinformation about global warming than Murdoch. In a year of rec­ord heat waves in Africa, freak snowstorms in America and epic flooding in Pakistan, the Fox network continued to dismiss climate change as nothing but a conspiracy by liberal scientists and Big Government."
I feel no remorse for suggesting "targeting" this band of gunsels, murderers and thieves. I wouldn't shed a single snivel for the whole feculent lot of 'em, were they ALL to perish tomorrow...

Brokaw's "Greatest Generation" had to end up killing millions of them. There is no compromising with these deadly criminals.
