Warmist attends Climate Hustle screening: Observes the ‘crowd loves…the crowd chuckles…Folks laugh along’ – MY EVENING W/ CLIMATE HUSTLE, SARAH PALIN, & THEM’

-

Warmist David Shreve: There’s no sign over the door to the balcony theater showing this strange new manifesto. For a moment, my counter-paranoia gets the best of me and I think of how secretive this feels. The absence of the film from all the appropriate advertising spaces, the extra five dollar fee, the unmarked theater, the geese keeping guard. It’s almost like finding the Fight Club of willful ignorance and mindless conspiracy theories…

As this plays, more people pour in. I expect mostly angry middle class men but I’m wrong. The only constant quality of all the attendees is that they’re all white. Make of that what you will. A father with his teenage son sit at the end of my row. Then enter some husbands and wives, more fathers and sons…

Two muscle bound 20-somethings sit behind me and, I swear, they bump fists as one of them says, “Bro, I’m just so happy to see this many people here that care.”…

This audience is the most expressive I’ve sat with in a long, long time…

Throughout the movie, a smarmy actor randomly pops up in the bottom corner of the screen and pantomimes expressive over-reaction and the crowd loves this device. Some even applaud it…

Folks laugh along, even though the joke would suggest that Gore is an upward trending genius…

Morano surmises with unearned condescension before calling a dog into the near solid-black frame. The crowd chuckles at the crack without even bothering to observe that the dog is almost as dark as the screen behind him and virtually undetectable were it not for the wagging tale against the host’s arms. The nearly invisible dog, incidentally, is my favorite part of the movie…

It’s true and perhaps necessarily observed that people like Marc Morano — those people who either intentionally promote ignorance or at least knowingly involve themselves in imperative matters in which their voices do not belong — are not good people.
