The El Paso Shooter’s Eco-Fascism Is “Terrifyingly Rational” Or Something

I didn’t think I would be writing about the Eco-Fascist beliefs of the El Paso nutjob so quickly, but this is a pretty hot take from left leaning magazine “The Week”. I wouldn’t be surprised if more attempt to get ahead of the obvious Cult of Climastrology beliefs of the nutjob Patrick Crusius

The El Paso shooter’s manifesto contains a dangerous message about climate change

The El Paso shooter’s alleged manifesto cites two inspirational texts. The first, unsurprisingly, is the manifesto by the Australian terrorist who murdered 51 Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand. The second, however, is less obvious: Dr. Seuss’s environmentalist fable The Lorax.

This was not mere trolling, or an inchoate rant. Part of the author’s justification for what he was about to do — shoot 22 people to death in a Walmart, most of them Mexican or Mexican-American — was that it would ultimately help restore our ecosystem. And far from an irrational or individual fixation, this argument is terrifyingly rational, and perfectly integrated into a broader project of white nationalism and racial terrorism.

It has a name: eco-fascism. And this will not be the last we hear of it.

Interestingly, the hardcore belief in anthropogenic climate change is primarily a Progressive/Socialist/Communist/Etc belief, so, if it integrates perfectly, that must mean that white nationalism is also a belief set of these same Modern Socialist, right?

While some may say it’s dangerous to discuss the manifesto and thereby amplify its contents, it is frankly even more dangerous to dismiss it as the ramblings of a lone wolf. The author — allegedly 21-year-old Patrick Crusius — is the logical endpoint of an ideology that has won over millions of Americans. In fact, the most disturbing thing about his manifesto is how mainstream it is. A great deal of it could be said out loud on Tucker Carlson’s show, or even on a CNN roundtable.

Tucker discusses his belief in ‘climate change’? But, yes, surely CNN. And the uber-Leftists at MSNBC.

Pull these threads together — ecological destruction, a new welfare state, white nationalism — and you begin to see the larger eco-fascist logic. Our current relationship to the ecosphere is unsustainable. One option is what might be called an ecosocialist state: a centrally planned economy that regulates the use of natural resources and ensures that all citizens have their basic necessities. The eco-fascist is open to such a state in theory, but not if the state is racially heterogeneous — otherwise, refugees from the global South will flood the global North, taking advantage of the welfare state and making the whole enterprise once again untenable. Therefore, as a condition for “sustainability,” the eco-fascist demands ethnic cleansing.

Um, that’s what many extremists in the Cult of Climastrology push for. A fascist, authoritarian state, along with population reduction. They usually call for this in 3rd world areas, though, rather than wacking immigrants. But, even as writer Bill Black attempts to shift this to some sort of right wing thing (why would we call for an Eco-Fascist state?)

As the reality of climate change becomes harder to deny, climate change denial will fade and eco-fascism will take its place. For younger fascists (Crusius was seven years old when Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the same age when An Inconvenient Truth opened in theaters), the question is not whether our environment is in danger. The question is whether the global North will address the ecological crisis in a way that preserves the racial hierarchy. If the earth is saved but brown people end up on top, it will not have been, according to the eco-fascists, worth saving.

He wants an Eco-Fascist state. This is the point of the Green New Deal. Doing a Google news search for Green New Deal articles is how I arrived at this screed. But, then Bill tries to walk it back, saying Eco-Fascism is bad. That there’s another way. Which, really, would be Eco-Fascism. And Patrick Crusius was a died in the wool member of the Cult of Climastrology.
