YOUR CHOICE: A GREEN AMERICA OR A BROWN AMERICA

In celebration of Earth Day this Saturday, let’s review how the Sierra Club sold its soul and screwed the Earth for a $100 million donation. They must hate themselves for it, so why shouldn’t we hate them, too?

After Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act began dumping millions of Third-Worlders on the country, the Sierra Club talked of little else besides reducing immigration.

In 1970, the club adopted a resolution complaining that the country’s growing population was polluting the “air, water and land” — to the point that “our very survival (is) threatened.”

In 1978, the Sierra Club adopted a resolution urging Congress to “conduct a thorough examination of U.S. immigration laws,” noting that the United States, Canada and Australia were the only countries admitting “more than a handful of permanent immigrants.”

In 1980, the club dropped its promotion of birth control, in order to focus on immigration. “It is obvious,” the club said, “that the numbers of immigrants the United States accepts affects our population size and growth rate,” even more than “the number of children per family.”

In 1989, the club’s Population Report expressly called for reducing the number of immigrants.

In 1990, the club’s grassroots leaders voted overwhelmingly to launch a major national campaign on the immigration problem.

Would any of this be of interest to an alleged environmental group? It used to be — until the early 2000s.

That was when the Sierra Club was given $100 million by hedge fund billionaire David Gelbaum in exchange for never opposing immigration again. The club said, How dare you ask us to abandon our principles for filthy lucre!

Just kidding! It said, SURE! Did you bring the check?

Mass Third World immigration is a triple whammy for the environment because:

1) Millions more people are tromping through our country;

2) The new people do not share Americans’ love of nature and cleanliness; and

3) We’re not allowed to criticize them.

Why Social-Justice Warriors Think It’s Okay to Be Racist Towards Asians

Come on. Did you really think you’d be accepted? Every word on your banner is spelled correctly.

Asian Americans deal with prejudice, but the dogmas of social justice maintain that they are racially privileged.

It happens all too often to Americans of Asian ancestry. They are walking home on a crowded street, and someone bumps into them and shouts, “Go back to China!” When it happened last year to Michael Luo, a New York Times journalist, he started the hashtag #ThisIs2016, and Asian-Americans shared their stories.

It happened to Jeff Sessions’s granddaughter at his confirmation hearing on January 10. When MTV News writer Ira Madison III saw an Asian-American girl, the child of John Walk and Ruth Sessions Walk, sitting in her grandfather’s lap, his first thought was to write, “Sessions, sir, kindly return this Asian baby to the Toys ‘R’ Us you stole her from.” This is 2017, and yet MTV News writers are dehumanizing Asian Americans and playing into common racist tropes.

Mashable: Trump time moves more slowly

From Heather Dockray at Mashable,

Remember the mild, scandal-free days of the Obama years, when the biggest breaking news of the day was the holy war against Frappucino cups or the First Lady escaping the White House to go to CVS?

Yeah. Neither can we.

I’ll second that but principally because traditional mainstream media, settling into a post-internet role as PR for progressive government, simply did not treat misdoings as scandals. We needed to go elsewhere for that, and we did.

But that, of course, is not what Dockray means; rather,

“It’s only been 3 weeks?” Meg S., who opposes the Trump administration, asked. “That is a crazy way to feel since so much is happening literally every day. It’s exhausting and it’s crawling by. Maybe it’s because time flies when you’re having fun and time crawls when you’re watching democracy set on fire in real time.”

Dockray then recruits neuroscientist David Eagleman’s work to back up her claims about trauma:

Eagleman’s experiment only examined how time slows down in individual moments of crisis, not daily compounded ones. Chronic trauma isn’t quite the same as individual moments of panic. Still, psychologists witness the same phenomenon when their clients experience depression and anxiety — both of them manifestations of nationwide Trump-related anxiety. More.

Reality check: Eagleman is not the fool Dockray makes him sound like. But in any event, Trump-related anxiety is largely the fate of those who had expected to batten off the corpse of the body politic and must now make a living producing something of value. No wonder time drags for them while they think up some ideas.

Whatever else we can learn, it is instructive how poorly progressives handle the very idea of others making their own decisions, different from the progressive ones. If ever let back into power, they will not lose the opportunity to prevent the rest of us ever having a choice about that again.

Gulag, Western Style

“…A useful technique for anaesthetizing the individual citizen and rendering him compliant is the erasure of authentic historical knowledge. We’ve remarked the success of this approach in the U.S. with the “history from below” or “people’s history” movement, associated with Howard Zinn, and the foregrounding of a bowdlerized version of Islamic history in American schools. Canada is no different. Eric McGeer, author of Words of Valediction and Remembrance: Canadian Epitaphs of the Second World War, writes: “In my last years of high school teaching I was increasingly infuriated and disgusted at the portrayal of Canada in the history textbooks assigned for use in our courses. There was no sense of gratitude in the textbooks, no empathy with the people of the past or an attempt to see them in their own terms, no sense of the effort people made to create one of the few truly liveable societies on earth. You would have thought that this country was nothing more than a racist, bigoted, this or that-phobic hotbed. My first lesson involved taking the book and dropping it into the waste paper basket and advising the students to do the same.” (personal communication). The study of history, McGeer concludes, is nothing now but a progressive morality tale and a mechanism of social engineering. Sounds a lot like Title IX. Pride in one’s nation, its accomplishments and sacrifices, is contra-indicated. There is more than one way of burning the flag.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told PBS that “white males” without college educations have voted Republican “because of guns, because of gays, and because of God — the three Gs — God being the woman’s right to choose.”
