What happened to global warming?

Only weeks ago, they had us obsessing over global warming.

It was the crisis du jour. For Leftists, any crisis will do so long as it gives them a cause; a sense of moral superiority, a touch of righteous indignation that sets the rest of us up for scolding. Duck…the sky is falling…and it is your fault. The teen angel from Sweden, Greta Thunberg, says so, then it must be so.

The guilt trip imposed upon the rest of us, lasts so long as it is politically and culturally convenient, and then it is on to another crisis.

Rule Number One: There must always be a crisis.

So then…and don’t ask me to operate in sequence… their crises do overlap…so then, do you remember the hashtag MeToo Movement?

For a while, it was all the rage, and I do mean rage. Every woman was Mother Teresa and every man was Harvey Weinstein.

Like climate change, that too has fallen below the fold, and barely rates a mention even along the back pages.

Even CNN doesn’t bother with that anymore, and along Fox News, crisis monger Juan Williams, and robot Leftists Marie Harf and Jessica Tarlov forget to bring it up.

Realize this, that without a crisis, there are no Liberals. They have nothing else. They feed off the hysteria, which they create, enlarge, and promote.

They need crises to live, breathe, multiply.

For instance, do you recall the Mueller Craze and the Impeachment Frenzy, which produced Russia, Russia, Russia, followed by Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine?

In those days when Adam Schiff was king, and Nancy Pelosi was queen, the fate of the world was in their hands.

The hysteria over all that seemed to go on forever. Nothing was more important. They had us in a sweat over the particulars and the details…and now…now it’s a nightmare from ages ago.

Speaking of nightmares, do you remember the Brett Kavanaugh Hearings, those days when the Democrats brought the nation to a standstill in order to ruin a single individual?

Who could have imagined that in America, among the majority of decent citizens, there exists a population of brutes and savages, now let loose and on full display upon our streets.

The media are part of the problem, as instigators or as fools. Rich Lowry, editor of National Review, writes that some (Confederate} statues deserve to be taken down. Azoy. These, he says, should be “re-evaluated,” and even Conservatives should support this. Okay, Rich. Next, I suppose, you will let us know which books and movies need to be “re-evaluated” and torched. Yes, Lowry is a Conservative.

Of course, among Liberals, Israel is the most reliable crisis of all, since the Jewish nation is always doing SOMETHING to get them shrieking OMG. Imagine this. These Israelis play for keeps. They won’t budge. They intend to stay. They refuse to hand over their G-d-given Land, paid for in blood, to The New York Times.

For the moment, however, Israel is not the only target, since, hello, we have a crisis that’s got everybody dancing to the same tune, racist; racist…racist…racist.

For the moment, we won’t discuss Goodman and Schwerner and the Jewish lives given and lost for the sake of Civil Rights, never thinking for our sacrifices we’d be recompensed as racists.

It is all in this book, which you may want to pick up and read while I am still around to discuss.

Later we will try to figure this out, how overnight we got to be white supremacists. We will try to understand how our “white privilege” spared none of us from the gas chambers.

So once again the country has lost its mind, over a tempest produced and directed by Liberals, featuring a cast of thousands who now trample the land like locusts.

They can do it because there is no one to stop them. This too shall pass. So we think. So they thought in Germany when the Brown Shirts started Breaking Glass.

Can’t happen here? It’s happening.

New York-based bestselling American novelist Jack Engelhard writes regularly for Arutz Sheva.

He wrote the worldwide book-to-movie bestseller “Indecent Proposal,” the authoritative newsroom epic, “The Bathsheba Deadline,” followed by his coming-of-age classics, “The Girls of Cincinnati,” and, the Holocaust-to-Montreal memoir, “Escape from Mount Moriah.” For that and his 1960s epic “The Days of the Bitter End,” contemporaries have hailed him “The last Hemingway, a writer without peer, and the conscience of us all.” Website: www.jackengelhard.com
