Democratic Party platform calls for prosecuting global warming skeptics

global warmingNo one should be surprised to learn that Democrats oppose freedom, especially enumerated freedoms spelled out in the Constitution.  We know Democrats hate the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, and they hate the right to due process.  Now comes word that the Democratic Party’s platform committee has unanimously adopted a plank calling for the Justice Department to prosecute companies that disagree with liberal dogma on global warming.

You know, like governments used to do to “heretics” back during the Dark Ages…

According to the Daily Caller:

A panel of Democrats voted Friday to approve a final draft of the party’s platform to promote “Progressive Democratic Values,” which apparently includes investigating energy companies who “misled” shareholders about global warming.

“Another joint proposal calling on the Department of Justice to investigate alleged corporate fraud on the part of fossil fuel companies who have reportedly misled shareholders and the public on the scientific reality of climate change was also adopted by unanimous consent,” according to the Democratic National Convention’s website.

The drafting committee, led by DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, has decided to back ongoing investigations by mostly Democratic state attorneys general into ExxonMobil’s stance on global warming.

According to the report, the platform needs to be approved by the full platform committee in July, then it will need to be approved at the Democratic National Convention.

Not only do they want to criminalize dissent, Democrats want to get rid of all fossil fuels by 2050.

Whether it gets approval or not, the fact that this made it into the mix proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the modern Democratic Party is not even an American political party anymore.  Not only does it not support the Constitution, it actively supports tyranny — and needs to be soundly defeated in November.
