A few days Ago Stacy McCain noted that the real news in this piece linked by Ed Driscoll was the Communist insurgency and death squads in the Philippines where things were so bad the people voted for someone who would wipe them out using extralegal methods.
Now all of this is important but I want to note one other point that is being missed here:
As Sherwood-O’Regan said, “As we grow and climate change becomes a harsher reality, privileged activists need to learn to de-centre themselves and meaningfully support Indigenous, disabled, queer, global south, POC, and other marginalized people who are on the frontlines
That these activists are a bunch of privileged bigots is not a big surprise because you’re basically dealing with a movement that came from the Green parties (high funded by the Soviets during the cold war) who were supported by a lot of bureaucrats hoping to cash but let me ask one question that seems to be missing here.
If this person actually believes that “Climate Change” is a danger to the planet and that millions will die from it, why would you be more worried about the ethnic makeup of the leadership since if they fail, it won’t matter since everybody would die anyway?
Now if you think these European voices are ineffective that’s fine, if you think they are not making headway that’s fine too, but if, as you say, we have to act NOW then the top concern has to be effectiveness not diversity.
Either you out to save the world or you’re not.
Now as I see this for the grift that it is, I don’t particularly care one way or the other about the feelings involved here, but I think it’s interesting to see where the priorities of all these folks are.
Since nearly everyone is talking about the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, I’m going to talk about something else. I don’t like to bore people – at least not intentionally.
Let’s talk about painting targets, since that’s what Rep Joaquin Castro (D-TX) did when he publicized a list of San Antonio donors to the Trump campaign in the wake of the latest mass shootings – in El Paso, TX and in Dayton, OH. Why would Castro do such a thing? You had to be on Twitter this past weekend to see the hurricane of accusations against President Trump – that his “racist rhetoric” and his support for “white supremacy (sic)” spurred these shooters. By the way, most of the Organized Left don’t want to talk about the Dayton shooting because the perpetrator was one of their minions — a big supporter of Elizabeth Warren.
Anyway, following the line of assertion that the president is a racist, Castro decided that certain Trump supporters who live in his district needed to be outed as racists. (Fun fact: at least two of the donors had also contributed to Castro.)
One of these supporters is Bill Miller Bar-B-Q.
Castro must have imagined thousands of San Antonians converging on the barbecue joints armed with torches and pitchforks, terrorizing customers in the drive-thru and staging boycotts. He must have dreamed about literally running the pit masters out of town.
But there are some rules about living in the Lone Star State. You go to church on Sunday. You don’t talk bad about somebody’s momma. And you don’t mess with the brisket.
The day after Castro published that hateful screed, thousands of Texans piled into their pickup trucks and drove to the nearest Bill Miller Bar-B-Q.
Social media reports flooded in showing massive drive-thru lines backing up onto busy streets. Hungry customers patiently waited in lines out the door.
I guess Castro forgot that his district is in Texas.
