Assorted members of the radical environmental group Earth First gathered in a North Carolina forest to hold a public mourning for old growth trees.
With tears and moans, this group of unrepentant hippies reveled in the chance to show their piety and their evolved, progressive sensitivities as they gnash their teeth in frustration at man’s inhumanity to trees. And no, this video is not satire.
Though they label themselves progressives, these eco-idiots are anything but. Their worship of Mother Earth as the supreme being was first practiced by totally unenlightened cavemen and women. Way before Father Earth launched his campaign to replace worship of God with worship of the environment.
That our capitalist society allows these idiots the time and wherewithal to indulge their inner children isn’t a factor these idiots choose to consider. They know that capitalism causes forests to die, and facts to the contrary are considered heresy. They are ‘enlightened.’
As is the case with progressives, public expressions of their deep feelings are considered cutting edge instead of idiotic. They care, and they want you to know it. And if you don’t agree, well, you’re just not as enlightened as they are. You poor thing.
