The Greens: Agree with us or we'll kill you.

Man are things weird in the UK. First their government is so
weapon-phobic they ban their own knights from owning swords.

Now their green movement has released a star-studded advert proposing killing those that don't tote the green line.

Edit: I'll add a graphic tag. The explosion itself isn't that graphic but the messy, chunky aftermath is.

I love how the hippy-dippy teacher tries to sound nice and reasonable and "come on let's all save the world it'll be fun", and then remorselessly murders the all the children that don't comply.

Edit: also the blatant lies of "No problem, no pressure, your choice."

That's the message: comply or die.

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.

At least here the mask is off. "With No Pressure, the environmental movement has revealed the snarling, wicked, homicidal misanthropy beneath its cloak of gentle, bunny-hugging righteousness."

And not very far beneath either.

There's a certian honesty to their murderous and totalitarian aims. Kind of like the Audi Green Police ad. Where the titular Green Police could condut warentless searches, do mass checkpoint, detain people without arresting them, and eliminated all privacy in order to make sure you were complying with "green law". At least Audi wasn't directly endorsing such a police state, they merely stated that their car would make collaboration easy.

Ace looks on the bright side.

I don't think they should apologize at all. I think they should be
applauded for an honest and forthright statement of their beliefs... people are the problem and those who stand in the way of 'progress' will be removed.

This isn't anything new, progressive and totalitarian regimes have been doing killing their enemies (in propaganda and in fact) for years. Once you've identified those who are responsible for all the ills befalling everyone else, it's only logical that the state be empowered to remove them.

Better to have it on the table than not.

Once again, this demonstrates that the best way to find out what a leftist is really thinking is to pay attention to what they accuse the right of doing. People on the left never tire of accusing the right of fear mongering and creating enemies. Yet here we have a clear picture of who environuts think are the true who won't get with the program.

Just for fun, do you think they could have gotten a guy like Curtis or all those celebrities to participate in a video warning of the dangers of expansionist Islam? Imagine if it featured suicide bombers chanting "Allahu Akbar"? Of course not. And if they did somehow pull it off, the UK police would have arrested them on a hate crime charge.

Emphasis added.

But it's for your own good!

Hmm sounds familiar.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.” –C.S. Lewis

Re: Lewis, I maintain that the man was a prophet -- not in the Isaiah/Jeremiah/Ezekiel way, but in the Jules Verve/H.G. Wells way. He predicted, with amazing prescience, what would be happening in society 50 years after the time of his writings, and he did so with near-perfect accuracy. "That Hideous Strength" (Space Trilogy) and "The Last Battle" (Narnia) are particularly chilling to read today.

H.G. Wells' political non fiction predictions are also rather chilling.

I should reread the Space Trilogy. NICE... brrrr. You know the UK has a NICE now, they're in charge of healthcare rationing.

It's like how Tocqueville predicted the rise of the redtape and beutoratict control. Tyranny through regulation.

Another chilling thing to read is in The Fellowship of the Ring, when Saruman gives his justification for siding with Sauron. It boils down to "We have to run things for the little people, who don't know any better; and if we have to do a little evil along the way, well, that's just the price you pay for making sure Those Who Know Best are in charge. And by them I mean Me."

The Jack said...

Yeah, JRR said the story wasn't a direct allegory for WW2, but it certainly dealt with Evil, its seduction, and the justifications people give in its name.
