The 10:10 uber-environmentalist video that everyone is talking about is just plain stupid. Stunningly stupid. (Warning – not for little eyes.)
And Ed has the EyeBlast version, in case this one gets pulled by the inconsistent YouTube folks.
What makes this fascinating is that the people who produce this dreck have no clue as to just how far removed they have become from normal human sensibilities, or at least they didn’t until the video began provoking the fully-predictable reaction. They have become so wrapped up in Gaia that they seem to have little connection to humanity.
The other, mainly unrelated point that comes to mind is that this represents a reductio ad absurdum of the view from the hard Left about how dissent gets treated by the mainstream American populace, vis-a-vis the Iraq war especially. Can you imagine the reaction had an organization like Move America Forward produced a video like this, where those who didn’t support a robust strategy for the war on terror were blown up by a button-pushing advocate for the strategy? Especially children in a classroom being terrorized by their teacher into compliance with the groupthink?
UPDATE: Verum Serum gets the nod for the most pun-ful post title – Climate Fanatic’s Cult of Gore. Surely Smitty, the Galactic PunMeister, is still recovering from his birthday celebration yesterday, otherwise he’d have had an entry or two.
