Are Global Warming skeptics "Traitors"?

According to Newsday.com, here's what Robert F. "We each get one free murder" Kennedy Jr. had to say at the Live Earth concert - "Get rid of all these rotten politicians that we have in Washington, who are nothing more than corporate toadies. This is treason. And we need to start treating them as traitors."

EXCUSE ME, but the "treatment" for traitors is execution. The standard of proof is quite high. The Constitution, in Article III, Section 3, Sentence 2 reads: “No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

Can anyone name a single "corporate toady" who has been convicted in a court of law using this standard of proof?

Is anyone else amused at this wild-eyed hysteria coming from a person who's family legacy consists primarily of alcoholism, adultery and giant political and personal scams, disasters and embarrasments? I think the gentleman from Boston is all wet, like his Uncle Teddy!

Answer:
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was the single most visible opponent to the Cape Cod Wind Farm (followed closely by Walter Cronkite). As such he is a walking PROPONENT of Global Warming. I hope that the Kennedy Family compound in Hyannisport is the very first place to get flooded when the icecaps melt.
He is just a spoiled rich kid, he has nothing to say that I want to hear. Only the silly libs want to listen to his rantings
According to George H.W. Bush, anyone who exposes a covert CIA agent is a traitor. How long do I have to wait for Scooter Libby's execution?
Just ignorant. For them the threat has to be more immediate, such as oh no food for two months! That's what happens when you can't see past the tip of your nose.
No, global warming deniers are not traitors.

They're usually ignorant, uninformed, or misinformed about the issue. They're quite possibly helping but the human race in great peril. But that's certainly not equivalent to being a traitor.
Is there a question or are you just ranting?
You are mis-reading the quote. "Get rid of all these rotten politicians that we have in Washington, who are nothing more than corporate toadies"

he is not saying "Global warming skeptics" are traitors; he is saying rotten politicians who are nothing more than corporate toadies are traitors.

the issue you are questioning is not really about global warming, but whether or not politicians that use their influence to exploit America to benefit corporations.

Whining about the Jr. or 'Uncle Teddy' on this subject is way off base. You should be whining about the current administration and their deep ties to big oil. You seem to have completely missed the point of your own question.
I think you took the quote out of context. I've read it twice and can't find the words 'global warming skeptic' in there anywhere.
Hold up hold up! i myself is a skpetic and i am not ignoant of the issue, i have plenty of edidence that global warming is not true. the fact that the middle ages had grapes growing in scotland, the fact that mars is warming up, and if i remember, no human has been on the planet, so we cannot be causing it if it is true. the fact that samples recently show that hurracanes had occured in much greater frequency several thousand years ago than today. one last thing, we have been keeping records since a hundred years ago, a tiny sliver in the history of earth, so to say it has been hotter now than how many years ago is just wrong. (I belive that all this warming and changes in climate is just a regular cycle that will cool down in a few years)
Typical hypocrisy of liberals.

They are all for freedom of speech except when it's against them. Now they want to take away freedom to think?

It is fascism. Pure, unadulterated fascism.

Oh, well, every century must have its fascists.
