Is Paris spurning?

"Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam."

Shifting his focus to the Paris Climate Accord, he calls for California Governor Jerry Brown to be prosecuted on a charge of treason.

Mr. Greenfield needs to take a calming breath while hugging a warm puppy in his safe space.

Also, since he’s calling for prosecution, (and not withstanding Gov. Moonbeam’s 1st Amendment protected, silly rhetoric) Greenfield should look up the legal definition of "treason.” With whom are we at war? Which enemy is aided and comforted?

To those questions you might reply, “With talking heads, the MSM, Antifa thugs and Hollywood airheads,” and "the Democrat Party base,” but that translates nascent civil disobedience into a capital crime. And it's redundant.

Furthermore, the Paris Accord is not an “illegal treaty,” since it’s a) not a treaty and, b) it’s not illegal for a state to have an environmental policy independent of the General Government, however stupid the policy. Might as well call California emissions standards treasonous.

Leave this sort of frantic fantasy to the NYT.
