As a climate emergency skeptic, I have been aware of the efforts by the alarmists to denigrate people like myself as "deniers." It's a crass utilization of the argument from intimidation which is intended, not to counter one's views but rather, but to shame one into silence instead. (and when this doesn't work they resort to the now widespread practice of censorship, and when that doesn't work - incarceration and death.)
When you are called a "denier" you are being compared to anyone who dares question the OFFICIAL holocaust story. This has never worked for me because I don't like being told what to believe.
It has actually backfired and led me down a very different path. While I previously never doubted the OFFICAL holocaust story, now I do.
Also, here's part of a paragraph from the article linked below that PERFECTLY describes the evolution of my own thinking on the question,
"Meanwhile, the concurrent collapse of my belief in our official American Pravda narrative on so many other controversial topics played a major role as well. Once I realized to my dismay that I couldn’t believe a word of what our media and political leaders said about major events in the here and now, their credibility on controversial happenings so long ago and far away entirely disappeared. For these reasons, I had grown quite suspicious and held a very open mind on Holocaust matters..."
The very last paragraph says,
"Until thirty years ago, Communist rule over the USSR and its Warsaw Pact allies seemed absolutely permanent and unshakeable, but the roots of that belief had totally rotted away, leaving behind nothing more than a hollow facade. Then one day, a gust of wind came along, and the entire gigantic structure collapsed. I wouldn’t be surprised if our current Holocaust narrative eventually suffers that same fate, perhaps with unfortunate consequences for those too closely associated with having maintained it."
Perhaps I am being overly optimistic but dare I hope that the same fate will beset the Climate Change hoax as well in my lifetime?
