HotCold Take: 9/11 Took Focus Away From ‘Climate Change’, Other SJW Things

Over at the NY Times, which has almost no coverage of September 11th, despite being in one of 3 cities that saw specific damage from the attacks (not too mention where all the murdered people were from), Omer Aziz writes what you think might be one of those “Islamophobia” pieces, complaining about people being mean to him because Muslim extremists attacked America that day, based on the headline and subhead

The World 9/11 Took From Us
I’m still mourning the life I lived before I learned that I was different.

It actually doesn’t really go down those roads, except very lightly. Here’s where it does end up going deep in the piece

There was a hidden cost to all this enormous energy expended on war and bombings. Not just the refugees or the cages or the guarantee of tomorrow’s terrorists. Not just the racism and xenophobia internalized by brown-skinned children who became adults in the shadows of this mass tragedy. All the policy focus on war meant there was too little time spent on the cataclysmic challenges of the 21st century: climate change and wealth inequality, both of which will plague our generation long after the warmongers have disappeared.

There were a few other hot-takes, such as the “Bush lied” meme, but, seriously, dragging ‘climate change’ into this is just stupid, along with the other stuff. Aziz does try to soften that blow

This is not to exculpate the terrorists or their ideology. For them, I reserve a special fury, just as their actions induce in me a special shame. When I think of Islamists monopolizing and weaponizing a great religion, I am filled with rage — rage at the audacity to shout Allah’s name while sending innocent people to their deaths; rage at the perversion of so many minds by their religious leaders; rage at the reality of living in a brown body that is stereotyped, misperceived and disfigured beyond my recognition — and there is nothing I can do to save it. This is the world Sept. 11 gave us.

Whoops, some Islamophobia, which seems to make him more upset than his co-religionists being murderous nutjobs.

    Glad to see how that wonderful Canadian health care system is working.

    “Life News reported:
    Canadian Sean Tagert, aged 41, was killed by assisted suicide after health officials decided to cut the funding for his in-home care hours.
    Mr Tagert suffered from Motor Neurone Disease (MND) which is known in Canada as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). His illness reduced his ability to move his body, eat or speak, however his mental awareness remained unaffected. Doctors recommended 24-hour in-home care to support Mr Tagert.
    However, Vancouver Coastal Health, initially only offered Mr Tagert 15.5 hours of care a day, which was then raised to 20 hours a day, meaning that Mr Tagert was forced to pay $263.50 a day for the remaining care that he needed to survive.
    According to Grandin Media, on social media, Mr Tagert wrote a status which explained that two Vancouver Coastal Health officials visited his home and confirmed that they were cutting funding for his already inadequate care hours.
    After receiving this news Mr Tagert wrote a number of devastating social media status’s which read: “So last Friday I officially submitted my medically assisted death paperwork, with lawyers and doctors, everything is in proper order. It’s been a month since I submitted my appeal to the Vancouver Coastal Health patient care quality department. They didn’t even respond….Welcome to the great Canadian healthcare system.”
    Mr Tagert was killed by assisted suicide on August 6th.”

      Love they used the word killed.

      PS A lot of Canucks hate their health care, too.

      In the US ALS patients are automatically enrolled in Medicare. Why doesn’t their private insurance cover them? Thank goodness for Medicare, right?

      Should insurance, whether gov’t or private, cover everything that patients demand?

        Another pointless comment with a little snark added in by the whiny little sissybitch.

        Lolgfy loser. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

          Another pointless comment with a little snark added by the whiny LilBish.

          BTW, does private insurance cover everything the patient wants?

          Go fuk yourself, LilBish.

      • formwiz says:

        Not.

        Patients with ALS must first qualify for Disability.

        Why doesn’t their private insurance cover them?

        It does.

        Once again, like converting Centigrade to Fahrenheit and carbonic acid, the bunny suit is caught in a lie.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Go fuk yourself, Dumbass. You got spanked bigtime on C to F and on carbonic acid, Dumbass. You’re too ignorant to know it.

          Do you really believe that an increase of 0.18C is equivalent to an increase of 32F, Dumbass. Remember this: (212-32)/(100-0) = 180/100 = 9/5. You’re welcome.

          Why do ALS patients automatically qualify for Medicare?

          • david7134 says:

            Jeff,
            The reason for the Medicare coverage is because one of the politicians had a friend or relative with the disease and passed a law. Most people with chronic disease like kidney go on Medicaid. Much of this is to make hospitals solvent as the feds stick it to the hospitals by making them cover all who come to the door.

            Now, if there is carbonic acid in the ocean, then disinterested it, so what is the concentration? Don’t bother looking it up as we covered this before and you could not find it.

            As to comment on housing homeless, easy get the 30 million illegals out of here and use that housing. How to get them out? Same as they got here. Make it impossible for them to live here and arrest the employers.

            There is zero evidence of human induced warming, a trace has does nothing, and the Climate hoax is a dead issue.
