Fox News Channel host Greg Gutfeld argued that “climate panic helps terror” and stated of climate activists, “Maybe they’re racist” on Tuesday’s broadcast of “The Five.”
Gutfeld said that climate activists “are almost entirely white European elitists, who wish to deny cheap fuel to the billion [in] the Third World not on the electricity grid. Maybe they’re racist. As Prince Charles falsely links drought to terror, this war on cheap resources is a more likely link. For when you insure poverty to a billion people, a death cult becomes viable. So, climate panic helps terror in two ways, by diverting resources from the fight, and punishing the poor.”
Gutfeld further wondered if the war on terror’s lack of glamour prevents it from getting the attention climate change does.
