Erick Erickson: I Worship Jesus So Screw The Climate

Right wing radio host and erstwhile Never Trump cheerleader Erick Erickson today went on a tweetstorm declaring that he doesn’t have to care about climate change because he believes in Jesus.

Twitter responded as Twitter is wont to do, spurring Erickson to double-down with cliched teabagger insults about liberal tears, blah blah blah. In other words, an ordinary douchebaggery-filled day for Erick Erickson.

  • safari

    He’s loathed by Trump supporters; he’s loathed by anyone not conservative, too. What’s left of this man’s audience?

    • Luther Kreiger

      That’s precisely what I was thinking. Is there anyone remaining who cares what this rotund failure thinks?

  • What the fuck do you think being good stewards of the planet means, asshole?

    • narutomania

      Well, duh! It means that it has to be like rilly rilly super convenient and shit.

    • RaygunsGoZap

      Well, it’s gonna be habitable for him and his kids so fuck the billions displaced by rising seas. We call them environmental refugees and these sick fucks will call them target practice.

    • Todd20036

      Right? This fucktard needs to die. I’m not saying a slow cancer, or heart ailment is in his best interests, I’m merely saying that if he dies screaming, I’d sooner make his agony my ring tone before I lift a finger to help him.

      • Chicago joe

        I would enjoy his final screams as my ringtone. I’d even rent a van wIth speakers and drive it around In heavily GOP populated areas…..

      • Goodboy

        Well, there was that pastor fuckety face who got tazed and heard crying and screaming which was like beautiful music.

    • Todd20036

      What I find hilarious is that he thinks praying to God will solve the world’s problems, but God couldn’t be bothered to deal with his morbid obesity.

      I was never a Romney fan, but he is right. He just hasn’t gotten to the part about Vlad not wanting America to be a global leader.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      He is right but late. That ship has sailed. Nobody trusts USA (i.e., Trump) anymore.

      The Germans today basically said that they believe that U.S. government under Trump would aid/abet Russian interference in their election and wisely said, “No thanks.”

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    If you believe in Jesus, Erik’s own stupid postings indicated Jesus’ command that we DO care about climate change.

    “I worship Jesus, not Mother Earth. He calls us all to be good stewards
    of the planet, but doesn’t mean I have to care about global warming.”

    And who made all those scientists who agree that climate change is real? Satan?

      Sunday’s Portland free speech (white supremacy) protest in Portland (which one GOP local wants to be staffed with militias for security) will set the tone for the next few years.

  • DesertSun59

    The GOP is the only significant political party on this entire planet that denies the facts of global anthropomorphic climate change.

    THE ONLY ONE.

    Thus, their denial is pure politics. It has nothing to do with evidence or science.

    • BudClark

      The most (fill in your favorite word here … my thesaurus is worn out) thing about all of this is that Republicans don’t even care about their OWN children, grand-children, and great-grand-children. Try as they might, and spend as much money as they have to spend, ultimately there is NO way to shield ANYONE in succeeding generations from the devastation of climate change, short of developing enormous self-sustaining space platforms (as many sci-fi writers have suggested), or terra-forming the Moon, and the moons of Mars (and possibly Jupiter).

      Listen up once and for all, climate change deniers:

      THERE. IS. NO. EARTH. TWO.

      Earth One is a CLOSED eco-system.

      We drink the same water the dinosaurs peed in; we breathe the same air Donald Trump farts in, and so forth. Mother Earth has provided INCREDIBLE natural natural recycling systems for ALL that … it USED to be that a stream could re-purify itself in a very short distance … was it less than a mile in my childhood seventy years ago? Try that with the Willamette River in Oregon today (!) … or the Gowanus (sp?) Canal in NYC, which is even infected with gonorrhea (!) in the water itself (!!).

      We’ve GOT to fix it, or we’re ALL gonna DIE! Simple as that.

    Where I live at, snow piles that lasted all winter now only last two to three days.
    Cold winters with snowfalls that let you ski, sled, ice fish etc. are a thing of the past.
    Summer temps that used to end about September now extend into November and December.
    And yet folks still want to deny climate change.
    Makes me sick.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Half the winter we walked to school in tunnels or between walls of snow piled up each side of the sidewalk. Once it snowed, it just kept piling up. There was seldom a break where it all melted. Now it snows and melts the next day.

      • jimbo65

        I remember days like that as a child. We would play king of the mountain on huge snow piles. Days gone by. Ugh.

      I pity only OTHER species.

      I tell you that the single BIGGEST story of the past quarter CENTURY in THIS country has been the abject FAILURE of the press and responsible politicians to expose and DESTROY the right-wing propaganda machine.

      It will cost us and the world EVERYTHING!!

      It is a fucking SCANDAL!!

  • billbear1961

    What do you THINK being a good steward MEANS, you goddamned, irresponsible JACKASS?!

    To think the planet’s future is in the hands of blind, willfully ignorant FOOLS like this BASTARD!!

    This country is a DISGRACE!!

        I make a regular habit of news/technology fast. I keep the house quiet and spend time reading, serving my master (dog), and meeting with friends (smartphone not allowed). Makes a yuuuuuuuuge difference.

    • meltedrubbersoul

      Their idea of good stewardship is to exploit it to the breaking point. That is the cultural sickness we have facing us: religious fundamentalism and rapacious greed. Revelation+Atlas Shrugged.

      Both books end with The Saints kicking back and watching everything burn. Both books are very sacred to those in power right now.

  • worstcultever

    Peak Insanity. They’ve reached it.

    Fortunately, despite their ability to grab the spotlight way beyond what their significance deserves, they are simply outnumbered. Massively. More and more every day. They and their tooth fairy fascism are the lone and isolated portland stabber of the world.

    And yes I’ve been following how that asshole Brown and the Russian orthodox fascists and our religio-fascists are doing a supra-national religio-fascist movement, and Pence is of course right in there. And you know what? They will NOT succeed. Can’t believe pessimist me is saying this, but they’re just another vain male hyper-nonsense brittle power thing. Their bullshit cannot endure the tide of normal sensible humanity. And females.

    I find it interesting that, when the topic is about the harassment his family felt at the hands of the Alt Right, he’s seems like a reasonable, compassionate human being. When it’s about climate change, he reverts to a callous, superstitious fool spouting talking points. More of “if it doesn’t affect me right now, it’s not an issue.” Sad.

    There must have been a recent update in the programming of the trumpbots, because this is the third one today I’ve heard of saying that it’s ok to wreck the environment because babyjesus will fix it later by magic.

    While America is pretending to be horrified by Kathy Griffin’s jokey picture of Trump’s severed head, Erickson actually threatened to kill people—census takers in 2010—and instead of his being shunned with revulsion, he was hired by CNN. To the cornfield with him.

    It’s 2017 and people across the globe still worship space gods. If that helps you get through life fine, but to me it’s been ruining the planet since human beings made up the first one.

    • I believe in a Supreme Force and good men and women who walked this earth – Jesus included. The Bible was written by humans – some of it inspiring – other parts evil and ignorant.
      Personally, I don’t blame this Creative Force for disease, early deaths, famines or wars. These events can be related to genetics, self-destruction, accidents or humans bent on wars and the unjust distribution of wealth. While Trump and other evil events are devastating to our minds, it is still a beautiful world with incredible loving people. Again, this is just my take. I want to puke everytime I have to listen or watch right-wing “Christians.”
