Try this for a deep dark secret: The global warming activists... They're anti-man.
I guess we knew that all along... But now we have incontrovertible proof, from the horses' mouths.
Imagine a Christian group producing a video that castigates the evils of abortion and then threatens to blow up anyone who refuses to convert to the "pro-life" cause. Funny?
That's exactly what the global warming folks did, and they thought it was great fun. The scandal made a big splash in Britain, but as it's foreign news and makes politically correct environmentalism look bad, the mainstream media in the US (except Fox) aren't likely to make much of it, so gather round and listen close.
The video shown below, No Pressure, was produced by the British global warming activist and filmmaker Franny Armstrong, for her 10:10 campaign, which is about signing up individuals and businesses to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions by ten percent. Her idea is that if enough people sign up, she can shame the British government into making the cuts mandatory for the whole country, i.e. — let me spell that out, it's going to be important in the context of the video — the British government will force every single Briton to make these cuts to their lifestyle.
In the video, an activist teacher asks her class to join the 10:10 campaign. When two students refuse, she tells them it's no problem, it's their choice, there's "no pressure." But then she draws a remote control and dynamites the two little global warming skeptics to kingdom come.
Similar scenes repeat in an office setting, on a soccer field, and in the studio where Gillian "X-Files" Anderson is providing the voiceover: People are asked to reduce their emissions and told that there is "no pressure." But those who refuse are exploded into fountains of gore. In the end, the same threat is directed at the viewer: "Cut your carbon [sic] by 10%. No pressure."
Despite all the producers' and apologists' smoke and mirrors about "dark and edgy" and British humor, the message is clear: If you don't believe in global warming, if you refuse to lower your carbon dioxide emissions, you will be murdered.
If you never understood why they're not properly called "greens" or "environmentalists," but eco-terrorists, or why Ayn Rand correctly identified them as anti-man, now you have proof from the horses' mouths. Now you have it not from some Earth Liberation Front terrorists, but from a mainstream (or should I say, high street) charity that gets it financial support from the British government and corporations like Sony, Kyocera, and O2.
The video not only demonstrates their totalitarian anti-man designs to have everyone who refuses to sacrifice their happiness and independence to mother earth murdered, it also demonstrates the religious nature of the environmentalist cult. Like the faithful of a fundamentalist religion, once they find they cannot by reasoning convert you or at least make you follow their commandments, they resort to blowing up infidels.
One wonders, what did they think they could possibly achieve with this outrage?
Maybe the moviemakers are capitalist double agents out to discredit the eco-terrorists?
Or maybe the video was a publicity stunt? If it was, it got them plenty of buzz, but otherwise backfired by thoroughly discrediting their cause.
Or it shows just how badly they misjudged the situation. With global warming alarmism being the accepted mainstream in Europe and Obama in the White House, they must have believed that skeptics are such a marginalized minority that they could safely shoot a spot advocating their extermination by gestapo methods and the majority would cheer them on and laugh (maniacally, one presumes).
In case of a "dude not funny" reaction, they probably thought they could invoke British humor, like a Monty Python movie, where the most outrageous and absurd things happen for laughs. But given the fact that their avowed aim is having the government use force against those who do not reduce their emissions, it's about as funny as a Monty Python movie about Auschwitz.
How did they fake that reality? Probably by the old double standard that a crime isn't a crime if it is committed by a democratically elected government.
On top of that, they plead self-defense. Apparently, we threaten the eco-terrorists' existence by breathing and using power, or at least they're deluded enough to believe that.
"Doing nothing about climate change is still a fairly common affliction, even in this day and age. What to do with those people, who are together threatening everybody's existence on this planet? Clearly we don't really think they should be blown up, that's just a joke for the mini-movie, but maybe a little amputating would be a good place to start?" jokes 10:10 founder and Age of Stupid film maker Franny Armstrong.
It constitutes supreme irony that moon bats that usually hold that an individual is not capable of making the right decision in a self-defense situation plead self-defense and pretend to understand the complexities of climate science, far more involved than any Mexican standoff can possibly be.
In any event, they couldn't resist the urge to act out their little wish-fulfillment fantasy the first instant they sensed they could get away with it, but boy did it blow up in their faces. They thought they could get away with threats of terrorism, but fortunately, we're not quite there yet, though not for lack of trying by sympathetic politicians like Al Gore.
For now, the upshot is that, as the eco-terrorists do not yet fully control the guns of government, all they got is pledges to spite them by increasing carbon dioxide output. Here are a few sample comments on this related video, at YouTube:
Nikopolis1912: After seeing this video, I must go and turn on a few lights, run an empty washing machine, leave the car idling in the drive and have a bonfire just for the hell of it.
kisemuk: After seeing this I have just turned on my air conditioner and an extra heater. Tomorrow I am going to chop down a tree before heading off to buy some giant spotlights, I need to increase my carbon footprint.
blogegog: It's going to be difficult to raise my carbon footprint by 10%, but I'm going to try. We've ALL got to try, people. If we don't, the world will become filled with hippie vegetarians like this lady. This cannot happen.
But more than that, this may be the end of the global warming hysteria and environmentalism as we know it. Like an evil phantom, the eco-terrorists have dropped their mask and provided us with a weapon that works against them like a mirror against a vampire.
Whenever another environmentalist rears their head and claims mother earth needs something, just show them and their audience this video mirroring the true nature and goals of the greens: the totalitarian rule of gore and the murder of all who resist.
