O/T, but I wanted you to see this ludicrous video that the Religious Right nutjobs have made, vilifying environmentalism.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/12/17/resisting-the-green-dragon_n_798387.htmlOne of the quotes:Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council“Increasingly, I believe Bible believeing Christians are becoming aware and as a result, more concerned about the underlying philosophy of the radical environmental agenda and how it’s pointing people away from God and into humanism.”Every time I think these lunatics couldn't possibly get more bizarre, they come up with crap like this!
Thanks for the link ProChoice Grandma! I was just watching this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVPIA6l2OTgIt's Naomi Oreskes talking about her book, The Merchants of Doubt. Even though I know a fair bit of the history, and the connections between the tobacco industry and climate change deniers, it was really interesting to see how right-wing war-mongers deliberately demonized environmentalists by labeling them as socialists, in order to preserve "free" markets with minimal government regulation.It's like there is a war between rational people and rapid ideologues like Palin and Cheney that is going to get even uglier until it's all over.
OMG! I could not be any sadder watching this. My heart is breaking. We are watching these beautful animals go extinct...right before our eyes...I would say god help us & them, but it seems there is no god.
crystalwolfakacalifgrl...I posted it without comment because there ARE no words. I look at that video as a mother, helpless to save her children.
That is horrible. They should feed them.
It is heartbreaking to watch this video.
Just posted this link to MJ re: this posthttp://motherjones.com/blue-marble/2010/12/beware-treehuggersEvangelicals are calling Environmentalists "The Green Dragon"and note that The Green Dragon is against "Prosperity" So there ya have it, Polar bears, trees, whales & the people that advocate for them.... get in the way of big corps making $$ and must be stopped!This needs to spread far and wide.These people ARE SATAN!
Actually, they are Dominionists, not Evangelicals. Chris Hedges does a nice job of ferreting out these nut jobs funded by the Plutocracy.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt8HHTHEMKIWhat we need to understand is that the same ultimate sources of funding for these groups also fund misdirecting causes on the left, with the goal of owning the entirety of the spectrum of the argument, and ultimately engendering an outcome that suits their purposes.
Here's some more on Dominionist Theology. Extremely unnerving material. Excuse the website, I'm not sure what it is, but the material on that page squares with Hedges account, it just goes into more detail. The Plutocracy/Corporatocracy is behind this garbage.http://www.bibleufo.com/dominion.htm
Great post Gail.Interesting notion that one side is promoting the future of humans and the lives of our children - and the other - the denialist dominionistas are demanding the current life humans should be considered above all other future humans.
