Earth Day, 1990, as described by a contemporary news article. Actually I was there that day, in 1990, in Central Park. (Yes, I’ve admitted I was ‘liberal’ in the past, in my misguided younger days.) The article above sums up the hypocrisy of most ‘progressives’, in that it’s always ‘do as I say, not as I do.’ They give themselves a pass on ‘disrespecting Mother Earth’ by scattering literally tons of litter and garbage as they bemoan ‘harming’ the planet by our throwaway culture.
Earth Day in 2017 apparently featured their ‘March for Science’, which I understand was an occasion to focus on ‘climate change denialists’, and to proselytize for their ‘Climate Apocalypse Cult’, as someone in the dissident-right blogosphere (accurately) calls it.
But speaking of denialists, where is the progressives’ devotion to holy Science when people like Nobel-winning scientist James Watson say things they don’t like? When it comes to matters of HBD and race/ethnicity, ‘progressives’ simply silence those who speak honestly about it. They like to pick and choose which ‘Science Truths’ they accept and which they will acknowledge.
Hypocrisy and double standards are always the order of the day for the left.
One little Earth Day factoid: one of the co-founders of Earth Day was (((Ira Einhorn.))) Some of you may remember him as the radical who killed his unfortunate girlfriend, whose body was found in a closet in Einhorn’s Philadelphia apartment. The news stories referred to his ‘composting’ her body. Maybe he was thus showing his respect for sound environmental principles. But true to form, the left denies that Einhorn was one of the founders of their sacred Earth Day. Don’t like a fact? Just “deny, deny, deny,” as Bill Clinton famously advised those caught in some wrongdoing.
Oh — and just for the record, (((Einhorn))) was not a ‘boomer’; he was born in 1940, so he was part of that ‘Silent Generation’ which produced people like (((Abbie Hoffman))), Tom Hayden, and many other lefty icons.
