Hump Day Hilarity: songs for round up day

This is amusing: We sing at events supporting peace and social justice around Oxfordshire.

That description from their web page seems nice, until you listen to what they are singing.

“what shall we do with the climate skeptics… if they won’t shut up?”

Maybe this? Hmmm, not so funny.

At least they didn’t explode any kids

  1. Truly appalling. Such a nice, prim, genteel chorus—until you hear their vile, hateful lyrics.
    Does anyone still think this is just about ‘the science’?
    /Mr Lynn

  2. Shows quite clearly that warmism is a religious cult – development stage comparable to the age of the inquisition. I see potential for development but it might take a few religious wars.

  3. hmmmmm. singing in a church about how to punish their enemies , “if they won’t shut up “. .
    Nasty lot.

  4. The depth of self-righteousness indignation is astounding, but it does cast a light on understanding why so-called witches were burned enthusiastically by the general public. Sociologically it would be interesting to see where the greatest anit-skeptic ranting is: during the days of the Inquisition, the greatest witchburners were Germans, then French, then the Scots. The English hung and drowned their witches, but to a lesser extent than the Scots. The Italians and Spanish were actually better at not killing off their political and neighbourly rivals under the guise of witchcraft. Which is another good example: the witchcraft persecutions were more about the wealth taken from the accused and the settling of scores than about actual practices of witchcraft. Just as climate alarmism is less about climate change damages than about settling socio-political scores and …. money.

  5. The good news is, they didn’t bother to rehearse. So we can’t really call it a “concerted” effort!

  6. Haha hah idiots, I noticed only one person had stopped to watch n listen. Everybody else took one look and kept going.

  7. Nothing like the sound of Orwellian sheep to add holiday cheer.
    But seriously, I have a question for anyone who might have an idle moment as the season sets in:
    1. If we release CO2 and energy by burning carbon-based fuel, and then
    2. natural processes absorb all the CO2 and energy to re-form the carbon-based fuel,
    how is there any net release of energy to the environment?
    Indeed, since some of the energy from (1) escapes into space, I would assume that we need energy from space just to enable (2).

  8. Yes, peace and social justice. I couldn’t make out any of the things they would do to people such as us, but it probably isn’t a group hug.

  9. Well, there’s certainly no way we’re going to shut up, and in fact telling us to do so will have the opposite effect. So, I guess that means we’re in big trouble. I, for one am quaking in my boots! From laughter, that is.
    Thanks, Anthony. You sure know how to lighten the mood.

  10. “The group is named after the colour of the ribbons worn by the Levellers, a radical movement in Cromwell’s Model Army. The Levellers believed in equality for all, justice, and human rights – things that inspire us, centuries later. We try to be true to the spirit of the Levellers – steadfastness in the face of oppression, determination to live by their principles.”
    I don’t remember the Levellers having a penchant for hypocrisy in the history books.

  11. Its easy to hate, one step from fanaticism and ignorance and intolerance too many. Its hard for cult members to define and adhere to normal civilised moral behaviour buts its also a very natural psychological reaction of true believers to lash out in anger at any other people who do not belong to the cults greater personality.
    To admit error, ‘when the facts change I change my mind’ is actually difficult and represents the highest gift of higher human endeavour. When a cult group personality is forced to face reality it acts to withdraw from that reality but also begins to hate those this group personality sees as responsible for this exposure. The natural reaction of the fanatic is anger and hatred and denial and a desire for revenge.
    The tragic result of the years of brainwashing by cynical opportunists has created many fanatics, they will find it almost impossible to see reason and return to some semblance of rational thought, just as rescued cult members are difficult to be deprogrammed so a whole mass of people with an entrenched belief system will be cut loose. The poisonous legacy of a poisonous anti human anti rational belief system unleashed by selfish cynical and manipulative forces will linger long after the CAGW theory is derided by those who champion it today.

  12. The Warmists are their own worst enemy. First they were preaching to a small and shrinking choir, now their choir is singing to themselves. Every video like this turns off more people who might have previously believed or gone along along with the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming Narrative. O come all ye faithful and challenge the liars who are stealing your money and trying to run your lives in the name of Global Warming.

  13. “Put them in the desert and ration their water. We’ll see how they like it?”
    Does this imply that they all ration their own water use as if they were in the desert?
    Anyway, the song is full of low-brow lyrics.

  14. Anthony & moderators… Some of us have youtube blocked at work (for various reasons), is it possible you guys could include a youtube html link as well as the embedded video in your articles? This makes it slightly easier to go find the youtube video with say a smartphone, or to e-mail myself the video for viewing later. Thanks.

  15. “Make them explain to their children’s children why they did not care.”
    This is always a dead give away for someone that doesn’t understand the science.
    The level of care for the environment shouldn’t influence anyone about a scientific issue.
    That being said, there are plenty of staunch environmentalists that HATE seeing all the resources which could be used to address real problems but are instead being stupidly diverted towards climate change research.

  16. I had to stop the video and drag it back on several parts in order to figure out what they were singing, but came up with the following things they would like to do to us if we don’t shut up:
    1. Tie up our assets in coastal property, (rising expectations).
    2. Put us in the desert and ration our water, (we’ll see how they mind it)
    3. Take us to the Arctic and make us tread water (watch the polar bears!)
    4. Lock us in a room with nothing but money (see what good it does them).
    5. Make us explain to our children’s children why -we-did -not CARE!
    They seem a vicious lot, especially the parts about putting us in the desert with rationed water, and putting us in Arctic water with polar bears.
    The question is,
    What shall we do with the Global Warmists, If they don’t get a clue?

    hmmmmm. singing in a church about how to punish their enemies , “if they won’t shut up “. .

    Not in a church – this is inside Oxford Town Hall. We may have a great University but we’ve got our fair share of dimwits too, like everywhere else! They can’t even sing tunefully.

  18. Thats really perverse.
    It is these alarmists who are daily proselytising vociferously, and here they are suggesting torture to sceptics for responding.
    It seems a particularly belligerent exercise in parochial cruelty and violence

  19. Hey, I didn’t see a pastor. Where’s the PASTOR? Did you see a pastor? Hmmm, man if I knew how I’d photo shop Mann at a podium with a baton. Well, perhaps not, that wouldn’t be ‘above-board’ now would it? ;-D

  20. Confirming what we suspected all along.
    People walking by didn’t seem all that impressed though, and that is somewhat reassuring.

    December 15, 2010 at 10:11 am
    Agreed, I’d even go one further and say that not only do they not understand, they don’t care about the science.

  22. To all our cousins across the Pond, our sincerest apologies.
    To show that all we Brits are not pecksiffian warmistas please have a look at the clip below. It was made in early December this year at Sheffield railway station (not the best or most salubrious auditorium, especially at this very chilly time).
    http://www.youtube.com/e/y4ClivhepfY

  23. I’m mightily surprise that The Reverend Carla A. Grosch-Miller – the Minister at St Columba’s united reform church – would allow the expression of such barbarity at the rostrum!

  24. “Not in a church – this is inside Oxford Town Hall. We may have a great University but we’ve got our fair share of dimwits too, like everywhere else! They can’t even sing tunefully.”
    Sorry. I confused your scenic Town Hall with your scenic church.
    That actually makes me feel better.

  25. Laugh as we may, this is one more reason to never let up calling out these maniacs. Freaks like these only cause problems when the rest of us laugh them off, thereby not taking them seriously. Look at history. We’ve seen this pattern before of blowing off wackos as nothing more and having it come back to haunt us. Thats why WWII happened.
    Just my 2c

    That actually makes me feel better.
    No problem, Jimash, a very understandable mistake to make. But it ticks me off that the Powers That Be let them sing a blatantly political song (songs?) in that place. What chance might I have of, say, setting up a little stall to distribute ‘Sceptic’ information leaflets?

  27. And the next act, “Yo Ho Ho And A Bottle Of Rum”
    Fifteen men on a Capitalist’s chest
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
    Drink and the devil had done for the rest
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
    The science was fixed by the NSF’s pike
    The energy supply brained with a marlinspike
    And First Amendment’s throat was marked belike
    It had been gripped by fingers ten;
    And there they lay, all good dead men
    Like break o’day in a boozing ken.
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

  28. I emailed them a message saying they forgot the verse about locking us up in concentration camps for asking questions. Just do and think exactly as they say, and we’ll be OK.

  29. Well, as they were kind enough to leave an email address I have sent them the lyrics for a new version of the same song which you can also sing along to and it goes like this:
    What shall we do with the eco fascists , what shall we do with the eco fascists, what shall we do with the eco fascists if they if they won’t shut up.
    Put them in a yurt on a diet of tofu, put them in a yurt on a diet of tofu, put them in a yurt on diet of tofu .. if they won’t shut up.
    What shall we do with the eco fascists, what shall we do with the eco fascists,what shall we do with the eco fascists if they if they won’t shut up.
    Hit them with a hockey stick for being stupid , hit them with a hockey stick for being stupid, hit them with a hockey stick for being stupid….. if they won’t shut up
    What shall we do with the eco fascists , what shall we do with the eco fascists, what shall we do with the eco fascists… if they if they won’t shut up
    Feed them to the polar bears who are hungry, feed them to the polar bears who are hungry, feed them to the polar bears who are hungry.. if they won’t shut up
    What shall we do with the eco fascists? What shall we do with the eco fascists, what shall we do with the eco fascists… if they if they won’t shut up,
    Teach them about scientific method, teach them about scientific method, teach them about scientific method ……if they won’t shut up.

  30. It’s not so funny when you live in the City. The city council is overrun by left-wingers and greens.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxford_City_Council#Statistics
    We recently found out that our primary schools had worse results than any other in the whole country;
    http://www.oxfordtimes.co.uk/archive/2010/11/13/Oxford+news+(om_oxfordnews)/8635474.Oxford_pupils_are_worst_in_country/
    I guess the Councillors were too busy letting out their town hall to these propagandists to care about that.

  31. Hi Anthony.
    I have just email this bunch of beauty’s as follows.
    Email to: Sea Green Singers & Douglas Hamilton
    Climate Skeptic Song -Sea Green Singers
    mail@seagreensingers.com
    Hello. I would like to wish The Sea Green Singers a Merry Christmas, in their search for truth and peace.
    I just saw the video what should we do will the skeptics, I laughed out loud.
    You are now in the same good company as the 10.10 people with their Kill any Skeptics by blowing them to bloody bits Video – Yeh man! That’s real climate justice for you.
    See 10.10 Video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McHjZ4tfdLw&feature=fvw
    George Orwell would be proud of your singers, your ideas of climate change and your version of social justice.
    Your sweet little bloody minded singing ditty is a veiled threat at torture and murder by thirst, drowning and suffocation. Maybe you could re-introduce the rack or better still the Inquisition to purge those filthy skeptics from the face of the killer CO2 laced world. This could be your next action video?
    What a sanctimonious uninformed and hateful twisted group of freedom lovers you must be? Its nice to see St Columbia’s Church is used for this evil work, is it a place of God or a Star Chamber? Does St Columbia’s Church sanctioning this spiteful hate filled mongering that is sanctioning death to anybody who dares to question the abusive global warming hoax.
    If you are the future –we have none!

    …the witchcraft persecutions were more about the wealth taken from the accused and the settling of scores than about actual practices of witchcraft. Just as climate alarmism is less about climate change damages than about settling socio-political scores and …. money.

    I was musing today, how Nazi camps dehumanized their inmates by giving them identity numbers, not names. That too was simply to put money into the German coffer. Turn people into money.

  34. That was really pathetic…. and creepy, in a sadistically sick fashion. As such, it adequately represents their ‘science’ and belief systems.
    We are neither skeptics nor advocates of Man Made Global Warming. We are realists, seeking honest science.
    We are scientists, engineers, physicists, mathematicians, archeologists, and laymen from every walk of life. Because we damn well do care, we demand honest, open science, founded on the Scientific Method. When we see dishonest and corrupted ‘science’, we confront it and denounce it. We will not shut up. Never.
    We will gladly explain their dishonesty to our families, the children of the Global Warming faithful, and anyone else seeking an honest discussion of any climate related topic.
    I would like to personally invite any or all of that pasty faced prattling pack of pusillanimous pukes to try… Please!… Try to make me do any of their re-education camp torture recommendations. I guarantee it will indeed be ‘educational’ and they’ll be singing a different tune, when we’re done.

  35. They are singing about us dude! Think about it. We have grown into such prominence that we are driving the warmists to distraction. What shall they ‘do with the climate sceptic?’
    It feels me with pride to be a climate sceptic.

  36. What a God awful choir, glad I live a long way away further north than Oxford. In some ways I wish that sea levels were rising significantly so that their

Sociologically it would be interesting to see where the greatest anit-skeptic ranting is: during the days of the Inquisition, the greatest witchburners were Germans, then French, then the Scots…

    A good excuse to post the link to Sallie Ballunis excellent summary of the pan-European persecution of witches and ‘weather cookers’ of the 16th and 17th centuries:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8C1CKKhN7ng (not so funny)
    Quite shocking, that so many ‘intelligent’ & educated people and official institutions throughout Europe not only went along with the persecution, but gave it legitimacy.
    But then again look at the leaders we have inadvertently allowed to take control of the EU:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWSYMpuCFaQ&feature=related (very funny)

  37. I was a choirister for over 35 years and most of the people I sang with would have walked away from anything as nasty as these talentless, witless numpties. It’s amazing the number of people who think they are very intelligent because there is a university in their town. A more prestigious ‘varsity college nearby makes them even smarter!

  38. I was going to say … their houses would be inundated. But then I got sidetracked looking for the Sally Ballunis and Nigel Farage videos.

  39. A choir called The Sea Green Singers
    A soap dodging bunch of mingers
    Made up songs full of hate
    To get the sceptics irate
    Now they’ve gone but the fragrance still lingers

  40. There is a comedy series on the bbc in the UK called the Armstrong and Miller show. This week they had a sketch based on an law prohibiting climate skepticism. It was very funny, although a bit too close to what could easily happen in a few years time! I was waiting for it to appear on Youtube but no sign of it yet! 🙁

    re STEPHANIE’s comment:
    “we may be getting closer to ‘burning heretics’”
    “Ah no, can’t do that – think of the carbon footprint!”
    I expect they’ll put us in the compost.

  42. Just to add a small point to the link to Armstrong and Miller above: the one potential saving grace in Britain with the whole climate scam is that we have a long tradition of mocking and laughing at people who tell us what to do (especially when self appointed, like these unmusical harridans, and especially when what they tell us to do is absurd). Huge proportions of ordinary people have finally clocked this stuff as unmitigated bollocks. And the BBC let this through too – which is the most astonishing bit.

  43. What a bunch of pitiful nitwits.
    Unfortunately they get elected too.
    Especially here in the Portland, Oregon area.

  44. The Sea Green Singers also has lots of anti-Israeli songs labeled “‘alternative’ carols for the Palestine Solidarity Campaign”.
    Israel made a ghetto of Jericho
    Bethlehem, Jerusalem
    Israel built a wall through Palestine
    But that wall will come tumbling down

    But they also have anti-Nazi songs. That’s good!

  45. Here they are singing that “famous socialist, communist, social-democratic and anarchist anthem,” The Internationale which, Wikipedia continues, “became the anthem of international socialism, and gained particular notoriety under the Soviet Union from 1922 to 1944, when it was that communist state’s de facto national anthem.”

    I think that says just about everything that needs to be said about these junior totalitarians.
    Green on the outside, red on the inside.

  46. You’re going to tie up my assets in beach property…I might enjoy that!
    [Best Bill Clinton voice] “C’mere, honey!”

  47. I wonder how many will hold their hands up when the revolution comes?
    It is the same with most propaganda, mindless drivvel taught to be spewed out by equally mindless people who feel ‘safe’ in numbers.
    Exactly how many of said choir members does anyone think would be able to come here for a an intellectual open debate on the subject?

  48. Well, they have clearly expressed hatred toward me. They have advocated assult on my peron and property. They have advocated suppression of my freedom of speach, my rights. (I think that is a violation of Civil Liberties laws, at least in the USA).
    Does not the UK have a “Hate Speach” law? It would be nice to see it applied here.
    BTW, I think the lyrics listed are a bit off. I heard “Tie up their assets in SOCIAL property rising expectations” i.e. confiscation of property. Also, “What SHALL we do” Intentionality.

  49. I got very distracted by Nigel Farage on U tube. That is a character and a half.
    I realize that people have freedom to express their opinion. HOWEVER when that opinion is to drown me, starve me, and feed me to the arctic wildlife, I call BullSnip. The worst part is that the only ways of dealing with this sort of hateful behavior involves behaving in a similarly morally deficient way.
    how awful. in order to destroy it you have to be like it.

  50. No one does the tweedy, middle class crank better than the English. Accept no substitutes.
    They are “mostly harmless” though.

  51. Bishop Hill and James Delingpoles take on the Armstrong & Miller video:
    As always the comments are as interesting as the arcticles.

    http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/jamesdelingpole/100068205/theyve-got-brigstocke-weve-got-armstrong-and-miller/
    I am surprised it got thorough the BBC. But such is the 10:10 style group think of some producers, I imagine they were thinking the joke was on the sceptics, not themselves….


  52. This are people the same worldview, that in a different era, cheered on the National Socialists because their eugenics science was directing a society that was, in their view, more beneficial to mankind.
    On InstaPundit this morning is an entry that direct your attention to a story about how many people Mao killed when his policies caused the Great Famine of 1958 to 1962.
    The author says:
    “Between 2 and 3 million of these victims were tortured to death or
    summarily executed, often for the slightest infraction. People accused of
    not working hard enough were hung and beaten; sometimes they were bound and
    thrown into ponds. Punishments for the least violations included mutilation
    and forcing people to eat excrement.
    “Communists are as bad as Nazis, and their defenders and apologists are
    as bad as Nazis’ defenders, but far more common. When you meet them, show
    them no respect. They’re evil, stupid, and dishonest. They should not enjoy
    the consequences of their behavior.”
    Every single AGW-related policy recommendation is socialist in nature. Every single one implies more government and less personal liberty. Every single one of them seeks to diminish the prosperity we enjoy in the west. They are all to one degree or another socialist in nature. And socialism is just a polite term for communist. In the end, these people as we have seen are willing to propose that if we have to blow up children to coerce people to agree to their policy proscriptions, they will blow up children. How is this different from what Mao was willing to do? The only difference is that Mao had the power and these people do not, at least yet.

  53. We’ve had to put up with the black shirt and brown shirt anti democracy movements of the twentieth century and now we have a new anti democracy movement in the twenty first century, the green shirt brigade. ]:

  54. You only become the center of a hostile fixation when you’re perceived as a real and imminent threat. The more they heap it on in frenzied and irrational vitriole, the stronger we become. The 10:10 and the singalong create two huge advantages to the skeptics’ side. One is the hostility and extremism disgust a lot of people who may be neutral about AGW but will turn away because they are offended. The other is that the intensity and frequency of attacks act as a very reliable measure of the fear level within the AGW camp. I’ll be more worried when skeptics are no longer the sun around which the AGW planet revolves.

    This is really offensive to me on a lot of levels. They are going to kidnap me and feed me to polar bears or dehydrate (torture) me in the desert because I don’t believe in the same propaganda that they do?
