Progress: Earth Day is Now a Joke
This is Earth Day, by the way, and Earth Day is a great, great example here. Earth Day is a perfect example of liberalism. It started out as something nice and fuzzy and innocent. Well, not to me. I knew what this was from the get-go. But it was people in tie dye T-shirts and dancing around the May pole and tossing people around in blankets and talking clean water and clean air and so forth, but what’s happened? It has metastasized into a relentless attack on capitalism, every nook and cranny of our lives just like everything else born of liberalism. However, other than MSNBC Earth Day is not a story today. I can remember as recently as three years ago Earth Day would have been wall-to-wall 24/7 coverage. Every cable news outlet, every newspaper, every magazine would be devoted to the latest progress, the warnings of global warming and so forth and what we all must do to save the earth and now it’s not even a story. Now it’s just a joke. Earth Day is a joke. We could declare victory in this sense. We single-handedly almost here at the EIB Network made Earth Day a national joke, along with global warming as a hoax. It used to be taken deadly seriously.
People ask me, “Well, how come you stay so optimistic?” Well, that’s one of the reasons why we have demonstrable successes at rolling things back if you fight them properly. Earth Day is now a joke. Do you even remember, folks, Earth Day’s founder, do you remember the story of Earth Day’s founder? Do you even remember his name? Ira Einhorn. Ira Einhorn was on stage hosting the first Earth Day event at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, April 22nd, 1970. Seven years later, the police raided his closet and found the composted body of his ex-girlfriend inside a trunk. Ira Einhorn, the father of Earth Day, killed and composted his girlfriend. And any time you mention this the Earth Day acolytes try to shut you up, and they don’t want you having any success at besmirching the image of their great leader.
