Pat Sajak: Global Warming Alarmists Are ‘Unpatriotic Racists’

              FILE - In this Sept. 29, 2007 file photo, Co-host Vanna White and host Pat Sajak make an appearance at Radio City Music Hall for a taping of celebrity week on "Wheel of Fortune" in New York. Sajak said in an interview on ESPN2 this week that the long-time game show duo would occasionally walk over to a nearby restaurant for "two or three or six" margaritas during a break in taping early "Wheel of Fortune" shows in California. Sajak has hosted the show since 1981, and White joined him a year later. (AP Photo/Peter Kramer, file)

“Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak had some harsh words for global warming “alarmists” last night. The TV game show host tweeted out that “alarmists” were “unpatriotic racists.”

I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night.

Sajak has been known to use his Twitter account to express his political views, reports The Washington Post. In particular, he likes to tweet about global warming “alarmists” claims on weather and climate. Here are some recent Sajak tweets on global warming:

Even though I told him it was settled folklore, my young nephew remains a Tooth Fairy denier. (Those kids today!) — Pat Sajak (@patsajak) May 19, 2014

Help…climate changing…must send money to lots of places…a lot of money…hurry…time is short…not kidding…

Very hot weather: “We’re all going to die!” Very cold weather: “There’s a difference between climate & weather, moron!”

Washington Post writer Jason Samenow quipped that Sajak must have missed his plea for people to stop the name-calling in the global warming debate

“But a plea: let’s debate this issue constructively and avoid name-calling,” Samenow wrote. “Deep-six the term ‘denier’ and abandon ‘alarmist’. Let’s get ‘warmist’ out of the way, too.”

But that seems unlikely to happen while global warming skeptics are being compared to Holocaust deniers, anti-abolitionists and racists.
