ECO-NUTS AND AL QAEDA HATE CIVILIZATION EQUALLY [Excerpts]
Around the globe, environmental protesters tried “a synchronized burst of more than 4,300 demonstrations, from the Himalayas to the Great Barrier Reef,” according to The New York Times.
At least al Qaeda is clear about what it wants – an end to Western civilization and establishment of global Sharia law -the Islamic version of cave men times with better architecture.
[Environmental extremists] have a patchwork of things they hate and want banned or destroyed. The week of the protests, the Times wrote glowingly about the Swedes now including carbon footprint labeling on all food.
The Times’ Elisabeth Rosenthal was quick to point out “changing one’s diet can be as effective in reducing emissions of climate-changing gases as changing the car one drives or doing away with the clothes dryer, scientific experts say.” I love it when people who have a huge subway system bemoan the automobile.
Two days later, London’s Daily Express complained that Fido was a global threat as well. “A medium-sized dog has the same carbon impact as a Toyota Land Cruiser driven 6,000 miles a year, a new book claims,” wrote the paper. It went on to blast pets – from cats to hamsters – because they use energy. Now I guess lefties can blame previous warming cycles on buffalo (or their SUVs).
We should be used to this theme. The left is on a global campaign to wipe out the trappings of civilization, and the media pretend it’s for our good.
In a headlong rush to stop something many scientists dispute, the left wants to ban human invention, accomplishment and enjoyment. The media, which reluctantly admit al Qaeda is somehow bad, can’t muster the same honesty about the eco-movement.
