What Color are Hypocrites? Green, of Course.

Hoo boy. Lots of stupid here...

Shell protesters damage West Seattle dive park habitat
The activists protesting Shell oil and the impacts drilling has on the environment left behind material used to anchor their protest barge in a popular dive park.

The barge known as "The People's Platform" was parked over the dive park near Seacrest Park during last weekend's protest of Shell and the Polar Pioneer oil rig.
First, take a look at the picture accompanying the article. What jumps out at you?


If you answered "Jay, they're protesting Shell Oil while using large products manufactured from petroleum", give yourself a cookie. 

So, as if it wasn't enough to be a bunch of giant hypocritical @$$holes (We hate Big Oil! But we love the stuff they make from it!), they thoroughly trashed the chosen venue. Well-played, oh great stewards of the environment. In your quest to demonize a legitimate company, you managed to create eco-havoc. You destroyed that which you claim to love, all the while showing your hypocritical @$$.

It's not every day we get a reminder just how feckless and clueless the anti-capitalist left really is. I mean, really, if you were looking for a better microcosm for the Green movement, it'd be hard to find one better than this story. They *claim* they want to save the environment, except that their actions belie that 100%. Kinda like pro-Green celebrities and politicians taking private jets to "save the environment" conferences, no?

It's not just the big shots that are clueless hypocrites; it's the entire movement...

That is all.

I'm reminded of this when I get off the boat at work, and walk down the street through Brooklyn's most leftist enclave- Cobble Hill. It's absolutely filthy and yet insanely expensive to live in, and I always have to dodge Greenpeace panhandlers and other green inc. cash collectors.
Returning to our evil oil transport company yard, you see a new kid flick a cigarette butt on the pier, and someone's as like as not to tell them to pick it up with their hands or they'll be picking it up with their mouth.

Simply pathetic... No other words for them. I prefer the French option for dealing with them!

At the risk of beating a dead horse, I will refer again to Thomas Sowell's book, "The Vision of the Anointed", subtitled, "Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy". The point he makes is that the Left supports causes for the sole purpose of being able, in their own emotions (I refuse to use the term "minds" in this context), to feel superior to everyone else. Results don't matter. Empirical evidence doesn't matter. Experience doesn't matter. NOTHING matters except that their position can be accepted by their peers as being on a higher moral plane than the positions of their enemies.
