“The truth is Greenpeace and I had divergent evolutions. I became a sensible environmentalist; Greenpeace became increasingly senseless as it adopted an agenda that is anti-science, anti-business, and downright anti-human. This is the story of our transformations. “
–Patrick Moore, founding member of Greenpeace, Confessions of a Greenpeace founder, Vancouver Sun
“PAUL KRUGMAN: I think the model is something like Clinton who, in fact, mostly was just riding on a successful economy that was successful mostly for reasons that had nothing much to do with him.“
Paul Krugman: ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, via Newsbusters
I had a professor who claimed that capitalism always has socialism to save it. The truth is that socialism is a parasite that feeds off our freedom and our success.
After the 90’s, Communism faded into the background with Nazism and other fascist ideologies. Rush Limbaugh (for all his faults) had it correct. The left needed to dress up their message, repackage and re-frame it. Hiding behind weasel words and good intentions, they use old guerrilla warfare tactics.
But the mask has slipped lately. Under the facade is the ugly hate filled fascism of the 19th and 20th century. Despite heaping praise on them, diligent bloggers have uncovered the “terrorist left.” No matter how they spin it, many leftist “scholars” are stuck in the 1960’s. They want riots and revolution no matter who gets hurt. They lie and smear anyone and anything.
That’s why we need to keep up the pressure. Speaking truth to power is not a slogan, it’s actually holding the people in power accountable for what they want from us, not just what they are doing.
Like Glenn Reynolds says, I’ll believe there’s a crisis when the people who tell me there is one start acting like it. But as long as the Al Gores and Tom Friedmans of the world continue to fly around in private jets and live in huge mansions … and alleged climate scientists like Michael Mann stubbornly refuse to hand over their tea leaves and chicken entrails for inspection by experts, I’ll keep driving my SUV, thank you very much.

Only the little people (the rest of us) make sacrifices eh?
The left is made up of people who want to do good. Really. World peace, save the planet, etc.
The movement is run by lunatics who want to destroy everything. No really. From industry, to business to our way of life. All while saying it’s for the planet/children/future/etc.
That’s why the conservative’s role is to stand in front of history and yell “stop!”.
Someone has to.
