At gunpoint–reporter stopped from asking Climategate questions

While the United Nations attempts to force every citizen in every nation on earth to disarm, touting the exceeding wickedness of guns, apparently firearms are preferred by U.N. officials themselves–particularly when their spokespersons are placed in the most uncomfortable position of having to answer questions about Climategate.

The incident in question occurred on Friday in Copenhagen during a press briefing. Professor Stephen Schneider of Stanford University, one of the U.N.’s mouthpieces on the ‘dangers of global warming,’ was answering questions from reporters about the Copenhagen conference. Veteran journalist and film maker Phelim McAleer began to question Professor Schneider on the ramifications of the Climategate scandal.

After a brief exchange that turned testy when Professor Schneider refused to answer questions and interrupted several of McAleer’s inquiries, this is what happened next:

However as the press conference drew to a close Professor Schneider’s assistant called armed UN security guards to the room. They held McAleer and aggressively ordered cameraman Ian Foster to stop filming. The guard threatened to take away the camera and expel the film crew from the conference if they did not obey his instructions to stop filming Professor Schneider.

The guard demanded to look at the film crews press credentials and refused to allow them to film until Professor Schneider left the room.
McAleer said he was disappointed by Professor Schneider’s behaviour.

Thus, not only is the U.N. and its co-conspirators in the scientific community stonewalling on the biggest scientific scandal in human history, but they are threatening at gunpoint anyone who dares question them on the issue.

The average citizens, according to the U.N., do not have the right to self-defense with firearms. Yet the U.N. itself can badger, bully, and intimidate into silence, with guns, anyone who questions their sordid attempt to hoodwink the entire world into believing that the sky is falling based upon a complete hoax.

This unconscionable incident is far from over, however. McAleer has registered an official complaint with the U.N., as if that will get him anywhere, but at least it will keep the incident in the news…

…McAleer stated,

“This is a blatant attempt to stop journalists doing journalism and asking hard questions. It is not the job of armed UN security officers to stop legitimate journalists asking legitimate questions of senior members of the UN’s IPCC.”
