Last month, I reported on how the Obama science czar’s office stonewalled my questions about John Holdren and his warm relationship with intellectual mentor and colleague Harrison Brown, a leading eugenics enthusiast who referred to the world population as a “pulsating mass of maggots.”
A deafening silence about Holdren’s radical ideology continues to grip the MSM. But the pressure from blogs and Fox News is getting under the science czar’s skin. And the left-wing Huffington Post has stepped up to try and stifle critics — by accusing them of a “defamation campaign.” When you can’t win arguments with dissenters, redefine their criticism as defamatory hate:
Conservative media outlets are waging an online defamation campaign against Presidential Science Advisor Jon Holdren, using out-of-context quotes and misinformation to portray him as hell-bent on pursuing population control through the use of forced abortions and mass sterilization.
Fox News reported that Holdren was bent on adopting a “planetary regime” of population control, while blogger Michelle Malkin called him a “wackjob” who entertains policies that would mandate “forced abortions, mass sterilizations, and poisoning the water supply to control the population.”
I called him a wackjob because he is a wackjob, and HuffPo’s best efforts to spin his work — which people can read for themselves — can’t mask the truth.
HuffPo’s newest alibi for Holdren?
“Holdren’s work was also a product of its time.”
Bull. The ghost of Margaret Sanger is not an abandoned artifact, but an animating spirit that thrives on the Left under the guise of “choice” and green values funded by deep-pocketed social engineers like the Rockefellers and Ted Turner.
The mainstream apathy over this population control enthusiast masquerading as a climate change do-gooder is a product of our time.
If this is “defamation,” go ahead and sue.
