Earth Day Rant: Green is the New Red

How interesting that ‪#‎EarthDay‬ coincides with Vladimir Lenin’s birthday. Bolshevik terrorist Vladimir Lenin and Earth Day founder Ira Einhorn have a lot in common. The former pioneered a movement that led to Russia’s collapse, global chaos, and death to millions; the latter killed his girlfriend and made a composite out of her.

Green is the new red, after all. Why? Big government and cronyism thrive on these environmental schemes to profit off of fear-mongering, foster group-think, and impose more regulations on businesses for the “sake of the environment.” I don’t know about you, but I’m certain everybody likes to have clean surroundings. True conservationists promote the environment through sustainable activities like fishing, hunting, and fracking/drilling. And if you suggest that “climate change” is not caused by humans or don’t believe the hype exaggerating natural changes in climate, you should apparently be imprisoned. Crazy! Modern-day environmentalism promotes technologies that are more expensive and truly harmful to the environment. Human life is expendable in the name of population control and abortion because we need to lower our carbon footprint! Fossil fuels are icky! Meat is gross!

ENOUGH. This movement is rooted in control and power. Don’t buy the hype and don’t consult bureaucrats if you want to protect and promote the environment.

You-the individual-can better the environment best.

Want to Immortalize Communists on Campus? Hang a Poster for Marxiness and Say Cheers to Leninade!

Taken from NewsReal Blog on September 23rd, 2010

I honestly do not understand individuals who admire communists. Maybe I am a delusional daughter of Lithuanian immigrants who “brainwashed” me with their anti-communist rhetoric. Maybe I am a paranoid conservative eager to dispel the myths that communists are not worth celebrating. Either way, it is frustrating that some Americans do not understand how evil these people are and fail to grasp the insurmountable number of people they killed! Try explaining that to my peers in college who hang up flags of Che Guevara and embrace the works of infamous Marxist-Leninists. Now, communists—alive and dead—continue to plague the halls, dorm walls, and social hubs at universities. Here at UC-San Diego there’s even a Che Cafe and  several  homages paid to a Messianic Obama around campus.

Recently, I crossed paths with the famed red drink adorned in Cyrillic and a haunting portrait of V.I. Lenin called Leninade.

Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever. -Vladimir Lenin

People will argue that this drink’s message is a harmless play on words and mockery of communism. Regardless, my fellow Eastern Europeans with an understanding of communism and its travesties find this gesture extremely offensive. It can be appropriately compared to plastering one’s college dorm walls with a poster of a shirtless Vladimir Putin—Russian Prime Minister and former KGB operative.

The photos will inevitably trigger mass swooning by women all over Russia – as well as unfavourable comparisons of their husbands to Mr Putin’s manly physique.

Making communism sexy and appealing is only going to aid the cause of advancing this oppressive—albeit failed—system, not prevent it. Let us hope that college students do not swoon over pictures of Hugo Chavez, Joseph Stalin, and Fidel Castro because it is not sexy and hip!

Leninade is adorned with the phrases, “”POPAGANDA,” “Get Hammered and Sickled,” “A Taste Worth Standing in Line For,” and “Drink Comrade! Drink! It’s This or the Gulag!” Does Leninade creator Danny Ginsburg understand what he is propagating? Placing communist rhetoric on pop drinks and posters is only going to leave Obama Zombies susceptible to this doctrine. Ginsburg is obviously not sensitive to the victims of Lenin and their families with this gesture. Lovely when “humanitarian,” so-called liberals don’t condone these killers in their campaigns, right?

Time will only tell if naive Americans will finally grasp that communism is ill-fated, not something worth capitalizing on.
