So the Earth Day Concert on the National Mall was a smashing success. If you don’t believe me, check out what they did to the mall during the concert and left behind for the real environmentalists, the clean up crews. The hypocrisy of those on the left seems to know no bounds. Government intrusions, environmental issues, the sanctity of life…. and on and on and on.
What’s that? You need some evidence? Well quite frankly most of this stuff is the lowest of low hanging fruit.
Government intrusion- let’s just take a look:
Environmental issues- let’s begin with the holy father of Environmentalism, Al Gore. First he sells his TV network Current TV to one of the mouthpieces of terrorism in the world Al Jazeera. Coincidently, they happened to be owned by Qatar, a country whose treatment of women and homosexuals has been well documented to be among the worst in the world. In addition, they are one of the largest producers of petroleum in the world. Then Global Warming Al hops on his private jet so he can travel around the world screaming about the horrors of fossil fuel (without having to travel with any of us commoners of course).
Then we have the previously mentioned disfiguring of the National Mall in the name of saving the Earth.
And finally (for today)- the sanctity of life.
Last week a teacher in New Jersey was in the news for forcing (asking??) her students to write get well cards for convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. This guy has been a cause for every lefty who wants cheap publicity in the past decade for reasons known only to those who are so open-minded their brains fell out a long time ago. Spared execution on a technicality, Abu-Jamal has somehow managed to hoodwink many on the left into believing he was a victim of a government out to get him for reasons unknown.
This is just one in a litany of folks the left can’t seem to help falling in love with, no matter what actually happened. Every execution seems to have its share of protestors lined up outside of it railing against the barbarism of our society executing a man or woman whose only crime was that they executed another man or woman. The murdering rampage is ignored because life is sacrosanct- but where’s the concern for the victim whose life was (wasn’t it?) just as sacrosanct?
And don’t forget the lefties who want to save the whales, the puppies, and the rain forests while siding with Debbie Wasserman-Schultz who last week said killing a seven pound baby who happened to be on the wrong side of the birth canal was a decision left to a mother and her doctor, only one of several hypocritical positions those on the left have regarding the sanctity of life.
Hypocrisy, thy name is progressive.
