I avoid “Earth Day” as much as I humanly can. The hippy fest just makes me want to run out and buy an SUV, or do something else that repulses these clueless freaks. But there always something else I could not put my finger on (or I simply, somehow, forgot), but here it is, all clarified… check out Ben Shapiro on “Earth Day”
He first highlights Obama’s religious celebration (as he carefully side-stepped the Easter Eggs, and anything remotely related to that day), it was just a mere inconvenience that Easter was held so close to Earth Day.
On April 22, President Obama announced the celebration of the 41st Earth Day. Unappeased, the Earth immediately spawned a tornado that ripped away half of the St. Louis airport, an earthquake in Indonesia, and a rainstorm that kept Michelle Obama from making her scheduled Earth Day event. It’s the Earth’s party, and it can fuss if it wants to.
While Christians across the world marked Easter and Jews marked Passover, liberals marked their annual ode to neo-paganism with hippy-dippy exercises in green self-righteousness. Of course, they neglected to mention that Gaia herself was a Greek hussy who mythologically created the oceans and the depths by an incestuous relationship with her son, Uranus. They also neglected to mention that one original co-founder of Earth Day was a murderer, that its first backers were tie-dyed socialists who hated capitalism, and that Earth Day itself was timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the birth of Vladimir Lenin.
My first thoughts were… are they talking about my mother, or are they talking about Jeanne Garofalo? (snicker)… Ok , you would have to personally know me, and my wack-a-doo history.
Mr Shapiro continues on with those who claimed they created Earth Day. Makes you wonder who is nuttier those who did create it, or those who claim they did. Tough call. So one nut-bar (Democrat Senator Gaylord Nelson) had an America-hating, socialist, and anti-war focus. It had nothing to do with recycling or hugging a tree. Another nut-bar (professor Barry Commoner) also had a socialist focus, again not environmental. Yikes that guy was a professor, people pay him to teach them.. no wonder so many college grads are screwed up. And yet another nut-bar (John McConnell) thought politics was the reason for war, so take that away and all will romp and play. What a lovely Disney flick, or maybe that was an acid flash-back he was having?
Naturally those who supported Socialist/Earth Day were (UN Secretary General) U Thant & (terrorist) Yasser Arafat. Oh but it gets better…
The dirtiest secret of all with regard to Earth Day is that one of its co-founders, Ira Einhorn, would go on to murder his girlfriend and stuff her in a closet beneath environmentally-unfriendly Styrofoam. After fleeing the United States and spending 23 years abroad, France finally extradited Einhorn. Upon his return, Einhorn explained that the CIA had framed him after discovering that Einhorn had uncovered their paranormal military weaponry plans. Einhorn is currently sitting in prison.
But back to the real focus of “Earth Day”, politics. Earth day gave birth to the EPA. You know that organization that has been focused on degrading this country to nothing.
It was the Democrats’ attempt to turn Earth Day into an excuse to regulate industry into the ground. In December 1970, just a few months after that first Earth Day, the Democratic Congress established the Environmental Protection Agency, a regulatory agency designed to destroy American industry in the name of greening the planet.
Today, that same EPA unilaterally claims the ability to regulate carbon emissions, eats up $10.5 billion in funding each year, kills hundreds of thousands of jobs, and produces rap videos informing schoolchildren to “turn the handle to the right, turn off the water, twist the handle real tight … public transportation is the way to go, well, it’s one of the ways to keep emissions low.”
So with the budget issues, this is certainly some dead weight that could be tossed over! And since it has been knocking out jobs, this would help our budget and help return jobs. Bonus! PLUS just getting rid of (the gov’t) stranglehold on Americans!
And sadly yet with each hard-core liberal President we end up with, a new layer is added to the Socialist/EPA/Earth-day/America-decaying monstrosity… (see AP News article) Obama reinforces the EPA stranglehold, with the “innocent” appearance of protecting streams and wetlands, naturally we know there is and will be much more to this story.
