Pamela McColl, who decided her great contribution to civilization should be to rewrite ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas
The self-published Pamela McColl of Vancouver, Canada, has a mission for her story, to protect children and their parents from the ravages of smoking. She mortgaged her house and sunk $200,000 into her telling of the 189-year-old holiday poem, touring the states to promote it ahead of its September release.
What, particularly, did McColl do? She excised these lines: “The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth. And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.” And she added to the cover: “Edited by Santa Claus for the benefit of children of the 21st century.”
And she included a letter from Santa on the back jacket flap announcing that “all of that old tired business of smoking” is behind him, claiming (by the way) that the reindeer can confirm his fur outerwear is faux out of respect for animals, including the polar bears of his beloved North Pole.
Leftists are huge fans of rewriting history, censoring history, and of curse, re-educating us all. McColl, is just the latest.
Yid With Lid posts something that every single climate change believer ought to read. It is a list of ten dire predictions from climate change alarmists, or should In say propagandists, that never came true. It is a tried and true strategy for those seeking to warn us of environmental disasters to make things up, lie, exaggerate, embellish, and fabricate. They excuse their vile tactics by saying they must raise awareness, and that even though they are not being entirely truthful, there really IS a catastrophe coming. My question has always been this, why do you have to lie? If science really is settled, there ought to be no need to make things up. Here are so0me highlights from the list, but go read them all, and point out some of these to remind your friends who may be members of the Cult of Catastrophic Climte Change, and yes, I came up with that one, now watch some talking head use it and get all the credit!

8. “In ten years all important animal life in the sea will be extinct. Large areas of coastline will have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish.” Ehrlich, speech during Earth Day, 1970
3. “Arctic specialist Bernt Balchen says a general warming trend over the North Pole is melting the polar ice cap and may produce an ice-free Arctic Ocean by the year 2000.” Christian Science Monitor, June 8, 1972. In 2008 Dr. David Barber of Manitoba University said “We’re actually projecting this year that the North Pole may be free of ice for the first time,” (ignoring the many earlier times the Pole has been ice free).
