Breaking Points Achieves The Impossible
They said the perfectly stupid YouTube segment was unattainable…they were wrong
One of my favorite pastimes has become exposing the climate communists in their efforts to weaponize a society-wide mental illness to achieve their climate utopian ends.
Typically these efforts arise from teacher’s unions, elitist organizations (like the WEF), and mass me. Still, they can also come from so-called “alternative media,” which is allegedly free of these mind-warped fantasies.
Alas, not all alternative media has the proper defenses against this agitprop, and one case-in-point is the popular show Breaking Points.
For those of you unfamiliar with the daily YouTube news show, Breaking Points is show hosted by braindead Commie and former MSNBC host Krystal Ball and eunuch conservative Saagar Enjeti, who acts like a serially abused spouse, terrified to ever pushback against his co-host’s horrifically inane ideas of how the world and the US should work.
The show is excellent entertainment if you are into non-sexual BDSM videos with a female dom.
I would typically never sully the pristine pages of Sub/Verses with their garbage, but a video they posted last week had such a strong shit-for-brains gravitational pull that I was drawn into the event horizon of their stupidity.
As I have recounted several times on these pages, the climate change zealots are driving our children into mental illness with their constant haranguing and catastrophizing about climate change.
Too hot? Climate change. Too cold? Climate change. Drought? Climate Change. Deluge? Climate change. The list could go on forever.
To hide their complicity, the fanatics try to gaslight us into reversing the order of operations; it is climate change itself that is causing the increase in climate change anxiety, not their baseless ranting about it.
But this monologue is something special in that Ball tries to pull off a rarely attempted feat. She apparently decides that a propaganda piece is not propaganda-y enough and needs to turn the propaganda meter up a couple of notches (I refuse to the make the requisite Spinal Tap, “this one goes to 11,” joke).
The full video, linked below, is only five minutes, so it may be worth your time to regale yourself it all its vacuity.
If you can’t deal with it today, I hear you… that’s why I have a job. Consider me your sponge for all that is lamebrained in the world.
As the lede-in, Ball recounts that recently a bunch of people were stuck on an airplane in Las Vegas without air conditioning for four hours, leading to several crew members getting sick, babies crying, and people shitting themselves (literally).
You would think the moral of that story would be that leaving 100+ people sitting in a tin can without a/c in a desert in the middle of summer is a bad idea. However, that isn’t on Ball’s agenda for the day.
“No surprise that these types of extreme temperatures are horrible on your body, have huge impacts on people and this comes of course as we’ve seen much of the country, and actually much of the world suffering through extraordinarily high temperatures, things that we’ve never seen before.”
ZOOOOOMMMMMMGGGGG CLIMATE CHANGE!!!!!
If it wasn’t for climate change, those people would have been totally fine and kept their underpants clean. Alas, the two degrees of climate change (allegedly) added to the temperature was the difference between explaining to your co-worker sitting next to you that you actually sat on a Hershey bar and not having to come up with that excuse.
Then, as best I can tell, by making the connection between the airplane defecation to the defecation between her ears, Ball proceeds to spend the rest of her monologue recounting an article called “Your Mind Might Be Overheating,” from heatmap.news, which I am sure is a 100% rational, fact-based site examining the horror which is climate change.
Ball claims that the article cites studies about the “impact on mental health from extreme temperatures,” ipso facto, climate change is making us crazy. However, if you do the oppressive work of reading the piece and associated studies sans your doomsday spectacles, it is apparent that they don’t make those claims. Instead, the claims are merely about how warmer temperatures (aka - summer) can drive some level of depression.
Her positioning is a pure three-card-monte fabrication, reinforced by the on-screen graphic that explicitly connects the two.
Let’s review the studies cited in the article:
One 2018 study looked at the correlation between heat waves and deaths by suicide and found that monthly suicide rates rose more than 2% due to temperature in the hottest months between 1968 and 2004. The authors also collected more than 600 million Twitter posts published over the course of about a year beginning in May 2014 and found more instances of depressive language like “lonely,” “trapped” or “suicidal” when temperatures rose.
This study has nothing to do with climate change but rather about heat.
Another study published last year looked at emergency room visits for mental health throughout the United States during the summer months between 2010 and 2019. The researchers found a 5% to 10% increase in visits on the hottest days.
Again… heat, not climate change.
She explains that the authors of one of the studies hypothesized that lack of sleep due to high heat could cause these mental breakdowns, while at the same time mentioning that the study only includes those covered by commercial insurance providers, in other words, people who can afford this type of therapy.
Do you know what people paying for therapy can also generally afford? Air Conditioning. So, wouldn’t most of these people be immune to sleeping in high temperatures thanks to Willis Carrier’s fantastic invention? Apparently, this incongruous possibility never penetrated her climate change-addled mind.
Within her summary of the piece, Ball conveniently forgets to mention this gem:
I [the article’s journalist] asked Anna Graybeal, a psychologist based in Austin, Texas, one of the cities hit hard by this summer’s extended heat wave, whether any of her patients were struggling due to the heat. At first she said no… [emphasis added]
Whoopsie. Down the memory hole that one goes…
Finally, Ball comes around to where we all knew she would end up…it is angst about climate change causing this group's mental health issues. Gee, where have I seen that before…
How does Ball arrive here, aside from wanting it to be true? Well, wouldn’t you know it, Graybeal, is part of the Climate Psychology Alliance, which “trains other providers to work with clients who are worried about climate change.”
Once again, the climate grift is excellent for business. As I noted in the Climate Change Drug Dealer piece, the activists are weaponizing climate change mental illness to create more activists, and now there are trade groups of psychologists who are using the same mental illness to drum up business. Isn’t this a cozy arrangement?
And sitting on top of all this are lame-brained talking heads like Ball, who reinforce this fourth-tier academic work by proselytizing it using eighth-tier logic.
This is a relatively minor example but an important reminder that you can never trust a cult member to tell you the truth, even if they reside in “alternative media.”
Unless, of course, that “alternative media” is Sub/Verses. Then, you can always blindly follow its lead.
