If you said "the third day in the Easter Octave", some might chide you for being archaic and not with it (whatever the heck "it" is).
You silly geese! It's Earth Day! Did you let this stupendous event go by, as I almost did (stop yawning!)? I think we can be grateful that April 22 is during the Easter Octave this year; else the politically-correct yammering about the Catholic Climate Covenant would be much louder than it is now. As it is, the nonsense reigns at Blessed Sacrament in Chevy Chase.
By the way - read about Ira Einhorn who claims to be one of Earth Day's founders. He's a convicted murderer! What a guy! He holds human life cheaply, obviously. Why give him and his crackpot notions any moral credibility?

LOL! I'm glad I'm not the only one who refuses to "celebrate" Earth Day!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the info on 'Earth Day' and the link about Ira Einhorn. What a disturbing story about a man 'disturbed.' Makes sense that even 'Earth Day' founders would distance themselves from such a man.ReplyDelete
Another interesting piece on the history of Earth Day can be found online at WND 04/19/2012 by Kevin DeAnna. He reviews Brian Sussman's book, "Eco-Tyranny: How the Left's Green Agenda will Dismantle America." According to Sussman, "the first nationwide Earth Day was held April 22, 1970, the 100th anniversary of the birth of the communist Bolshevik leader (Vladimir Lenin, founder of the Soviet Union). The article gives more facts about Sen. Nelson of Wisconsin and his connection to rabid 'population control' supporter and author, Paul Ehrlich, citing Ehrlich's '“brutal and heartless decisions” to solve the “problem” of overpopulation.' Also mentioned are the leftist connections that Nelson used to further efforts to get Earth Day organized, anti-war activist Denis Hayes being one chosen to help get things underway.
Also discussed are Lenin's approaches to land use in the Soviet Union--the Decree on Land-- and Hunting and the possession of hunting weapons, many of these activities were banned.
To quote from the article:
"Sussman summarizes, “During Lenin’s reign, Russia initiated the most audacious nature conservancy program in the twentieth century. Starting with a vision created by Marx 50 years prior, Lenin had successfully implemented version one of the green agenda. His accomplishments would eventually … [be] celebrated the world over each April.”
Today, Earth Day is the most widely celebrated secular holiday in the world, with almost every major American institution paying it some sort of recognition in spite of its extreme origins. Despite the mainstreaming of Lenin’s anniversary celebration, left-wing activists honor the true history of the holiday by attacking property rights and human economic activity.
For example, as part of “Earth Week direct action,” Occupy DC protesters have been storming private businesses and trade associations such as the American Natural Gas Association.
However, this is only an echo of the plans the Obama administration has to restrict land ownership, American energy production and economic activity.
As Sussman reveals in Eco-Tyranny, the Obama administration has been pushing aggressively to seize hundreds of thousands of acres, as documented by secret memos from within the administration.
Sussman also shows how wealthy progressive activists and Democratic politicians are pushing to create American versions of the zapovedniki by creating human-free “wildlife corridors,” while Americans are forced to settle into highly regulated, heavily populated “megaregions.”
Sussman states in “Eco-Tyranny” that “socialism’s green flag [has achieved] great success with [its] devious agenda … even in America.” On April 22, the entire country will join in socialism’s celebration."
