The Hysteria Factor

HysteriaThe WHO has finally admitted to what many of us have known or suspected for years: that they have been exaggerating the AIDS numbers. Why? It’s simple: to scare us into supporting condoms for children and “sex education” at younger and younger ages. It’s for the children, that we must corrupt them, it’s for their own good that we give them a pack of condoms in their homework. And it’s all been due to a big lie, just one of many.

As a matter of fact, the WHO will be revising the numbers down some 40%. That’s quite a readjustment. Oops, we were off by millions, maybe uh er, 7 million or so, but who knows? It’s not an accident, no way. It was done accidentally on purpose. There’s a lot of money to made and a lot of social engineering to be done when liberals whip up the good old reliable hysteria.

No ThoughtThis same “chicken little” strategy is being pimped by Al Gore (the Goracle) and his mindless panicky followers who emotionally and tearfully claim that manbearpig, er, global warming, is coming to kill us all, so we have to do something really stupid right now. There’s no time to think. It’s stupidity or death.

But that’s a false choice, right out of the leftist playbook. Actually it’s stupidity or common sense, that’s why they try to rush us to judgement without any actual, you know, evidence. Panic! Hurry! Do something stupid! Ban cars! Redefine marriage! Fornicate with animals! Vote for Clinton! And on and on it goes.

I’ll bet if you put your mind to it, you will find other examples where the hysteria pimps on the left try to scare Americans and rational thinking conservatives into stupid solutions for non-existent problems. I’ll give you a couple of more examples, and then you can add your own in the comment thread.

Smoking and the Secondhand Smoke Boogieman

No Smoking

Oh noes! The second hand smoke fairy is going to KILL YOU DEAD! We better ban all smoking in bars and restaurants and private residences or we’re all going to die! It’s for the children!

Meanwhile smoking rates goes down while asthma rates go up.

But if only all teh awful, nasty, smelly, MURDEROUS smokers were sent to the moon it would all be betterz!one!!

Guns and Crazy People

No GunsOh noes! Some crazy person killed someone with a handgun! Ban all gunz or we’re all dead!

Some kid just shot himself with a gun his stupid dad left on the coffee table!

Quick! Do something stupid! Don’t think! Hurry! BAN ALL GUNS!!!eleven! Repeal the Second Amendment or we’s all DOOOMED!

Moar Examples of The Hysteria Factor

Now it’s your turn. Liberal nanny state know-it-alls use this tactic all the time. I bet you’ve got some examples that others haven’t even thought of. Go for it, B4B readers!

  2. I’m glad you got that left wing myth out of the way. Very funny and ironic. You really should have worked “no blood for oil” in there. Don’t you know how to speak truth to power?

  6. i agree wholeheartedly about the gun issue. if a kid is stupid enough to wield a gun without understanding safety measures and accidentally kills himself, it’s his own damn fault. i call it natural selection, you’ll probably call it something else, but the result is the same thing: less stupid people in the gene pool.
    i can see the need for separating smoking sections in restaurants, but they should ban all smoking in buildings. nonsmokers have a right to not have to inhale secondhand smoke, but smokers shouldn’t have to leave the premises.

    my contribution to hysteria…
    OMFG TERRORISTS ARE GOING TO ATTACK EVERY CITY IN AMERICA! WE MUST TAKE AWAY OUR FREEDOM SO WE CAN BE SAFE FROM ANGRY PEOPLE! 2-BIT CARTOON CHARACTERS ARE BOMBS! “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – Benjamin Franklin
    it’s been 6 years since 9-11. can we get rid of the patriot act now?

  8. You left-wing facists are so predictable.

    Psycheout does some hard-hitting investigative reporting and all you can come back with is lame non-sequitures.

    DID you even read that last post? Oh, right, you’re incapable of reading.

    You should really have someone else do your thinking for you as well. Someone with say a cattle prod that can poke you every time you’re about to say something stupid and maybe a TASER so they can zap you before you DO something stupid.

    You all really need help. I know some guys that can help you. Seriously.

  9. The unlettered cannot be trusted with numbers. Today, it’s AIDS statistics, tomorrow, it’ll be “global warming” statistics. The UN: just another numbers game.

  10. if we couldn’t read, Marty, how could we write? your assertion is contradictory. and having one source (not counting the other blog link) on your post isn’t “hard-hitting investigative reporting.”
    And we’re not Fascists. Fascism is a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition ( source ). Sounds more like what you stand for, Marty.

  11. Why do you have to continually insult your host? Did you hate your father? Do you have “issues?”

    Guess what. We don’t need them, you or your facist friends here clogging up the inter-tubes with your filthy thoughts.

  12. 1) Who’s the host?
    2) Why would hating one’s father have anything to do with the discussion?
    3) I have Time Magazine, National Geographic, and Shonen Jump

  15. Thanks Marty. We haven’t figured out how to deliver electric shocks to commenters who make stupid comments, but we’re working on it. Getting a large enough charge into a packet that can discharge to the keyboard is quite a challenge. But people will figure it out when we’ve got it working!

    Now, let’s try to get back on topic. C’mon critics, I’m sure you can figure out how this works. Stop being intentionally obtuse.

    This is a fun game. Use your imagination. Let’s be productive here….

    Don’t just derail the thread. That game is getting old.

  16. Here’s another one:

    Oh noes, that kid prayed in school. It might hurt some atheist’s feelings somewhere across the country.

    I KNOW! QUICK! DON’T THINK! BAN ALL PRAYER IN SCHOOL AND FORBID ANY MENTION OF JESUS!!! Yearrrrghhhhhh!

    And another:

    Oh noes! Under G-d? In the pledge!?!? QUICK! DON’T THINK! BURN THE FLAG!!one!!1! Burn ALL flags.

    Anti-war Hippie: I know, I’ll poop on it!

    That covers prayer in schools and the pledge of allegience with a little flag burning thrown in. C’mon guys, before I grab all the good ones!

    All liberals are hippie flag burners!

    Despite the fact our economy depends on the slave labor provided by immigrants were going to complain about them as if they are ruining the country!

    I don’t deign to respond (yet) to such a stupid article, but Psycheout – I got your hint. Thanks for confirming that you are indeed psrodt.

  28. 1) thank you for specifying
    2) again, where did the dad thing come from? you’ve pulled something out of nothing, which, if i’m not mistaken, is something only god’s allowed to do.
    3) read the bible, but sometimes i prefer nonfiction.
    4) learn to internet, ma’am (i think you’re a lady, you sound like one). lol means “laughing out loud” at least ednote researches before posting. i mean, i posted the goddamn dictionary as a source for my last post; i think i know how to spell.
    5) this site is open to comments from anyone. if it was just for people who agreed with the viewpoints, the site administrators would make it private; it’s not hard to do. instead, it’s easily viewed by the public, so if you don’t like us being on your precious site, petition the admins to require accounts in order to comment. don’t yell at us, hate makes us stronger. hate energizes us for the next attack on everything you hold dear. hate is what we’re trying to achieve, and you’re providing it in such incredible amounts.
    and i’m not a nihilist. again, you mislabel without regard to truth. Nihilism is a viewpoint that traditional values and beliefs are unfounded and that existence is senseless and useless source. i’m all for morality, and i find life to be very important. you endorse the torture and murder of people you don’t like; i just wish to not associate with them. live and let be. i haven’t called you any names, so please play nice and treat me with the same respect.

    and i’m sorry if i’m wrong about you being a lady, that’s just the impression i get. spidey-senses and such.

    [Ed Note: “…hate is what we’re trying to achieve….” — if that’s true then you should probably just leave. That’s not what we’re about here.]

  32. Psycheout, the One World Government is a very real threat, except that at the moment only the UN and NAFTA are indicators. I’m sick of all the libertaritards thinking that Ron Paul is this country’s last hope. I have an article for them: Marxism of the Right. Leftist Mark Huben likes it, too. Anyone that likes Ayn Rand should be shot.

    oh noes Bush went on a golf trip! He’s a slacker!!!!1!

    oh noes the government won’t let me walk around bare naked everywhere I go! i’m being oppressed!! it’s MY RIGHT to pervertedly prance about the inner city with no clothes on!

    oh noes that person is making more than $50,000 a year! He’s a criminal and should have a 90% taxation rate!

    oh noes Rush Limbaugh’s had a caller that said the ‘n’ word! AM radio should be banned and we should force people to present our retarted views with this ‘Fairness’ Doctrine!

    oh noes Georgia had a drought! bush is slacking!!!!!!

    Is the water not working in your faucet? Blame Bush!
    Did you just crash into someone on the interstate? Blame Bush!
    O.J. Simpson got away with murder? Blame Bush!

    Liberalism: where the trueness of Murphy’s Law requires a scapegoat. Bush!

    You seem to forget your own judgement of the boy who was given detention, not for a school shooting, not even for possessing a real gun, but for drawing a stick figure with a water gun. You said society should throw the book at him. I am also against gun control (proper “gun control” is to use both hands). However, if you cannot argue a point consistently, do not argue it at all. You only make yourself look foolish when you do.

    3. If anyone running this site would actually read the whole Bible instead of just the war scenes, this blog might actually have some constructive things to say.

    4. LOL is an abbreviation for “laughing out loud,” which is also what I did when I saw this comment.

  40. New hysteria:

    “Oh no! Even though 80% of the nation is Christian, there must be a War on Christianity–and we’re losing! Quick! Ban the mention of any other religion, put copies of the Ten Commandments in every public place, and ban anyone from mentioning the First Amendment!!”
