As we reported Thursday, the low-information, Borg-like collective known as the modern American left went bonkers after President Trump announced the administration would be pulling out of the horrific Paris climate accord. Among those who went insane was wealthy filmmaker Michael Moore who called the decision a “crime against humanity.”
“Trump just committed a crime against humanity. This admitted predator has now expanded his predatory acts to the entire planet,” he tweeted.

Naturally, his equally low-information base joined in the collective meltdown:
The US in an adversarial relationship with the rest of the world except those run by dictators

Yes, it was bad enough when he wanted to kill ME with TrumpCare. Now he wants to kill my grandchildren (and everyone’s grandchildren).

There were some who tried to inject reality in the discussion:
you do realize they are talking a fraction of a degree in 100 years? tell the celebs stop flying private jets and building mansions

No, and it’s frankly a waste of time to try informing people who have no desire to be informed.
he’s a murderer. If his healthcare bill passes its more killing. Trump/Hitler

Then there were the obligatory calls to formally charge Trump:
Agreed. Trump must be indicted and sent to Hague for the crime against humanity – namely, against this planet

Plus appeals to logic and intellect, which are in short supply on the left:
Climate change has been going on since the beginning of time. The earth is constantly & naturally healing it self.

Precisely. The accord, which was agreed to by former President Barack Obama, was more about wealth redistribution than climate, as Trump noted in his Rose Garden announcement yesterday. “In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord,” Trump declared, adding:
We will see if we can make a deal that’s fair. And if we can, that’s great. And if we can’t, that’s fine.
Trump sounded the America-first theme, indicating that the “well being” of the American people first and foremost was a motivating factor behind his decision. He said,
This includes ending the implementation of the nationally determined contribution and, very importantly, the Green Climate Fund, which is costing the United States a vast fortune.
The president also observed that the agreement allows China to increase their emissions for 13 years while blocking U.S. development of clean coal.
“In short, the agreement doesn’t eliminate coal jobs, it just transfers those jobs out of America and the United States, and ships them to foreign countries,” he said. “This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States.”
He also quoted a Wall Street Journal article, which emphasized “the reality … that withdrawing is in America’s economic interest and won’t matter much to the climate.”
Apparently, facts don’t matter to the insane left.
