Default Your Choice: A Green America, Or A Brown America

In celebration of Earth Day this Saturday, let's review how the Sierra Club sold its soul and screwed the Earth for a $100 million donation. They must hate themselves for it, so why shouldn't we hate them, too?
Quote:
Writing in an environmental journal at New York University, Rosa P. Oakes described the "reprehensible" damage being done to "towering cactus, Joshua trees, flowering cactus varieties, colorful wildflowers and rock formations" by illegals. With accompanying photos, she noted that the immigrants' litter included "abandoned vehicles ... used needles, drug paraphernalia, plastic grocery bags, paper products, empty water containers, blankets, clothing, used disposable diapers, among other things."


Quote:
Would any of this be of interest to an alleged environmental group? It used to be -- until the early 2000s.

That was when the Sierra Club was given $100 million by hedge fund billionaire David Gelbaum in exchange for never opposing immigration again. The club said, How dare you ask us to abandon our principles for filthy lucre!

Forum rules...

Quote:
There's been some confusion on rule #5 when it comes to creating a thread title, so this post is to clear it up.

Here's the rule.

Quote:
5. Copyright. You may NOT submit/post any writing, pictures or any other information ("works") on our forum if by doing so you would violate the intellectual property rights of a third party. Chances are that if you did not create the works yourself --or they are not widely known as being in the public domain -- someone else has copyright protection in those works. It is your responsibility to post works that are not in violation of federal, state and international intellectual property laws. Consistent with Section 2, above, PoliticalWrinkles.com will not be responsible for your infringement.
In other words, the author (or editors of the site) came up with the title of the source so credit should be given by using that same title.

The subject IS the Sierra Club on immigration.
I think there may be something amiss if the Title is not directly related to the subject. Otherwise it is click bait.

Litter isn't green or brown. The people to which the Sierra Club are objecting are brown. having said that,,,; is the title perhaps racist?

Like the Huckabee headline I posted yesterday. I was daring any of the mods to change it to the subject matter. But they followed their interpretation of rule#5.
And so did I, with great objection.

On the subject of the OP, I would make this distinction which the OP did not. The Seirra Club is not anti immigrant. Or racist. They are against the litter left by Illegal immigrants who sneak into the country. The word "illegal" was conspicuously missing from the verbiage of the OP.

Had I posted the article, that would have been my subject matter, and my responsibly reflection of it in the title. title. And, the mods would have likely changed it.

This isn't about green and brown. It is about the Seirra Club's concern of littering by illegal aliens crossing the border and dumping their trash as they travel.

So remember kiddie,,,; if a link is used to back up the point of your posting, it's click bait headline has to be the title. Even if it is objectionable,,,; or misleading.

Got it?

I doubt Sierra Club attacked immigration or got paid not to.
Asking to choose a "Green or Brown America" is a blatant racist thinking it's hiding behind ecology of all things.

Brings back the graffiti that said, "There is no white or black--only varying shades of brown."

We're really all varying shades of tan, but dumbasses who litter are those of any shade with shlt for brains.

The Sierra club story is no surprise to those who see it as one of the finest organizations that money can buy.

Look at what their position was before they received the big donation.. You simply have no clue about anything you just have some nonsensical emotional point of view and anything that doesn't fit into that framework you choose to not believe.
