More Democrats Believe Global Warming a “Major Threat” than Islamic State Militants

68% of Democrats surveyed in a new Pew Research Center poll said that global warming/climate change is a “major threat” to the U.S.

68%.

Meanwhile, 67% of Democrats think that Islamic State militants, or ISIS, is a big problem.

Do the math. That means more Democrats believe we should put time, money and effort toward battling global warming/climate change than merciless terrorists who are beheading our citizens.

And even if you argue that it’s one percent difference between the two and therefore really a tie, that still means that as many Democrats believe we should put time, money and effort toward battling global warming/climate change as we do merciless terrorists who are beheading our citizens.

Sorry for the repetition, but that’s kinda sad.

No. Scratch that. It’s very sad.

In this corner of the “major threat” ring, we have a known group of terrorists who are trying to take over the Middle East through horrific acts of violence and abuse of power. Oh yeah, and it’s a pretty darn good bet that they won’t be content to stop there.

In the other corner, we have an alleged heating phenomenon that was on a major fritz last summer, caused an utterly frigid winter last year, has led to an exceedingly mild summer this year and is purported to have an even colder winter coming up.

Let’s see… Which is more dangerous?

This isn’t difficult, Democrats. I know you’re better than this.

So how about you start acting like it and use those cute little noggins of yours. They’re not just there for decoration.
