International Journal of Inactivism (now supplanted by Decoding SwiftHack)


Andrew Revkin is the Völkischer Beobachter of Liberal Fascism?

cite as: F. Bi. 2009. Andrew Revkin is the Völkischer Beobachter of Liberal Fascism? Intl. J. Inact., 2:39–40

Update on the take-home message of the Heartland Institute’s self-styled 2009 International Conference on “Global Warming Is A Scam And Al Gore Is Fat” Climate Change: it seems that the take-home message turned out to be something between

████ ██████ ██ ██████ ████ Czech President Václav Klaus █████ ███ █████████ █ ███!


███ ██ ███████ █ ███ James Hansen ███ █ ███ ungood █ ███!!! 1, 2, 3

No real prizes for you if you got it right (sorry), but if there’s a demand for web stickers or some such, perhaps I can come up with some.

He’s supposedly guilty of such high crimes as “support[ing] and defend[ing] the liberal editorial policies of his employers” — which is weird, because (as I said before) he didn’t really say anything bad about the ‘conference’ outright. Oh well.


  1. Let me know if you disagree.
  2. In comments at his blog, Greenfyre asked me how I did the ‘redacted’ thing. Well, it’s a character in the Unicode character encoding, specifically U+2588 FULL BLOCK. You can obtain it with the HTML code █ or █.
  3. Speaking of character encodings, please please please don’t do what’s shown in the picture.


  1. Und Klaus ist der Possenreißer? I guess I am just surprised that Cheney deemed the Heartland take home message to have security implications.

    I think that’ll make Klaus the Pražské povstání of Liberal Fascism…

    I guess I am just surprised that Cheney deemed the Heartland take home message to have security implications.

    The problem’s more that even the purveyors don’t even know what the take-home message is. 🙂 Václav Klaus said something about… Communism? Economics? Global warming being a “theory”? Whatever… whatever Klaus said, it’s definitely good! And whatever James Hansen did is ungood.

    Methinks Planet Gore’s jealous of the “Obama’s an illegal alien” spin that seems to be stirring in the right-wing blogocave since CPAC. Looking for a similar sound bite with which to prove their biases, they drop acid and, in a flashback montage, start proclaiming that it’s all connected and, through the magic of literary tropisms, manage to emerge from the drug-induced hallucination with a clear and correct vision of reality that no other man had deduced to that point.

    …Wait, I’m told that’s Inspector Eric Finch in V for Vendetta, not Planet Gore. I always get those two mixed up.

    OK. Now it’s all starting to make sense — some sort of sense… :-B
