BLOG: An Eco-Extremist's Idea Of A Joke

Bryan Dubois

Content warning for people who either a. don't like gore - or b. fully understand the basis of the anti-human belief of eco-extremists.

And I'm not talking about people who believe in recycling cardboard, glass, plastic and turning off the water while brushing their teeth.  I'm talking about people who are unafraid to voice their belief that human beings are parasites on earth and though intelligent beings - are really no different than any other living thing inhabiting the planet.  To them, human beings are resources that must be managed or eliminated for the betterment of the earth.

Here's a sample of this viewpoint casually shared on the digital pages of the Sandusky Register.  Identifying the author isn't important - it's the idea that I'm trying to highlight:

Taken to an extreme, this viewpoint was shared by a certain armed gunman who shot up the headquarters of the Discovery Channel because they would not stop producing tv shows that promoted "human parasites":

The pagan practice of Earth worship is nothing new, but what most people don't realize is when eco-fanaticism takes the place of a person's natural desire to acknowledge and worship God, (take a guess where that desire comes from.) we allow ourselves to creep past taking care of our planet in a responsible manner to making earth - and worshiping earth - our first priority.

So....

On to the video:  (via the Anchoress)

This 'joke' shows you exactly what eco-fanatics really believe:  Human beings are so unimportant that blowing them apart if they refuse to accept the dogmatic beliefs of the eco-movement is perfectly acceptable.

Hey, if you're offended by this - remember:  It's just an eco-freak's  "joke."

This group "1010" has since removed the video from their website and issued an obligitory apology.  Even the apology is telling:  Their supporters found the video "extremely funny."

Go figure.

 Remember when the Bush administration declared "eco terrorists" our greatest domestic terrorist threat? Similar bogus trend propagation going on in this post. 

They are everywhere! It's on the internet! We are Christians they are pagan! 

The real reporters take the weekend off, bring on Dubious. Nice touch not naming your functionally anonymous commenter source, makes you seem so professional. Its sad to see one of our only local news sources promoting lazy, childish dribble like this. What a joke!

Please Mr. Westerhold, don't rehire this guy! It's not even that I disagree with him. His writing is just so bad. Why sully our local news source with brain dead opinions we can get anywhere else online?

Feel free to misquote me, Dubious.

Enjoy George Carlin!

And I quote without any kind of express permission:

We’re so self-important. So self-important. Everybody’s going to save something now. “Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save those snails.” And the greatest arrogance of all: save the planet. What? Are these people kidding me? Save the planet, we don’t even know how to take care of ourselves yet. We haven’t learned how to care for one another, we’re gonna save the  planet?

I’m getting tired of that crap.  I’m tired of Earth Day, I’m tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these white, bourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country is there aren’t enough bicycle paths. People trying to make the world save for their Volvos. Besides, environmentalists don’t give a crap about the planet. They don’t care about the planet. Not in the abstract they don’t. Not in the abstract they don’t. You know what they’re interested in? A clean place to live. Their own habitat. They’re worried that some day in the future, they might be personally inconvenienced. Narrow, unenlightened self-interest doesn’t impress me.

Besides, there is nothing wrong with the planet. Nothing wrong with the planet. The planet is fine. The PEOPLE are screwed. Difference. Difference. The planet is fine. Compared to the people, the planet is doing great. Been here four and a half billion years. Did you ever think about the arithmetic? The planet has been here four and a half billion years. We’ve been here, what, a hundred thousand? Maybe two hundred thousand? And we’ve only been engaged in heavy industry for a little over two hundred years. Two hundred years versus four and a half billion. And we have the CONCEIT to think that somehow we’re a threat? That somehow we’re gonna put in jeopardy this beautiful little blue-green ball that’s just a-floatin’ around the sun?

 @ Mr. Dubois:

Scary @#$%!

Authoritarian-totalitarianism comes in numerous guises and colors but it’s intention is always the same – power and compliance.

The earth is less than 5,000 years old.  The Lord is all powerful.  These environmentalists are crazy They are not on a mission for god where American Christian Patriots bomb abortion clinics and kill abortion doctors.  We are righteous in our cause and liberals are evil sinners

@ bs:   So are you writing that you agree with the extremist sentiments as expressed in the video?  

How about gulags or re-education camps for those of who do not agree with leftist viewpoints; would that suffice? Or is execution the only alternative?

That would be a start.

So what is the point? That ecologists are nuts? That some ecologists are nuts? We don't have enough of that going around now. Instead of finding another crazy, how about actually solving some problems. Not wanting climate change to be a fact, doesn't mean that we can ignor the evidence all around us.

@ bs:   Do you think that maybe Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Castro, Mao and so many other historical and present day political mass murderers would be proud of you?   Don’t I remember something about that blessed Saint FDR ordering ethic concentration camps?   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_Order_9066   Gulags must be a Progressive thing.   ---------   Reminds me of a joke:   A new inmate comes into the Soviet gulag and he’s asked by another inmate, “What did you do?”   The inmate replies, “Nothing.”   He’s asked, “What was your sentence?”   He replies, “Ten years.”   The other inmate says incredulously, “Ten years! You lucky b*stard! The judge must have been your friend. Everyone knows that the sentence for "nothing" is twenty years.”
