Progressive Values - #2222 - Video: No Pressure: New Environmental Campaign Glorified Eco-Fascism - The Blaze


The latest anti-global warming campaign aimed at getting people around the world to reduce their carbon footprint has backfired. Big time. The people behind the “10:10″ campaign, a movement encouraging people to reduce their carbon consumption by 10 percent in 2010, have been forced to pull their controversial new advertisement from the internet after widespread public outcry. The gruesome 4-minute ad depicts global warming skeptics being literally blown to pieces after their tree-hugging friends insist they’re under “no pressure” to modify their carbon consumption.

Warning (via Sad Hill): “Do NOT watch this video if you wish to avoid portrayals of extreme violence, genocide, child murders, demonic practice and terrorism — all in the name of environmentalism.Unfortunately for the “10:10″ folks, the public disgust surrounding the video outweighed its message and its producers pulled it from the web. Equally unfortunate for them, however, is the rampant re-posting of the video by bloggers around the world. While the video’s message may have backfired, many point out that it gives a scary glimpse into the mind of today’s global warming alarmists. With its “No Pressure” campaign, writes the UK’s Telegraph, “the environmental movement has revealed the snarling, wicked, homicidal misanthropy beneath its cloak of gentle, bunny-hugging righteousness,”  165,133 views, link to original site.....  Commentary:  It was hard for me to post this video, as I hate watching anything violent, but I felt people need to realize to what length some environmentalists will go to in convincing people their views are what you must believe.  What kind of values, or lack thereof, does a group have to possess to produce and put on the web a video this extreme, and only pull it after massive public criticism.

UK Pundit to Shocked TV Host: Suffering Children Should be Smothered - The Blaze - Advice columnists in Britain are known as “agony aunts” (or uncles). Virginia Ironside is one. Her latest bit of advice has drawn outraged reaction from television viewers who caught her comments on the BBC yesterday. She appeared during a segment called, “Can abortion be a kindness?” Here’s the Daily Mail account of her comments:  Miss Ironside said: ‘If a baby’s going to be born severely disabled or totally unwanted, surely an abortion is the act of a loving mother.’  She added: ‘If I were the mother of a suffering child – I mean a deeply suffering child – I would be the first to want to put a pillow over its face… If it was a child I really loved, who was in agony, I think any good mother would.’Disability rights advocates called her pro-eugenics approach “despicable.” Even the host seemed stunned: Programme host Susanna Reid appeared visibly shocked by her comments during the live debate, gasping: ‘That’s a pretty horrifying thing to say, that you would put a pillow over a suffering child.’ mIn the past, Ironside has said she believes doctors should not try to save the lives of “very premature babies.”  I have a difficult time understand how the other woman could sit there and not say anything, just looked shocked.

Congresswoman Calls for Repealing Hyde Amendment; Backs Assertion That Abortion is Safer than Childbirth - CNS News Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) said the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal funding of abortion except in certain cases, should be repealed, and also said “there’s no evidence” that increasing access to abortion services encourages people to get abortions.  At an event on Capitol Hill sponsored by the Center for Reproductive Rights to call for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, asked Rep. Schakowsky, “So, increasing access to abortion, you think, does not encourage some people to get abortions?”  Rep. Schakowsky said, “No, there’s no evidence of that around the world, where access to abortion is more available but somehow women are more inclined to get one.”  Read more......
