White Supremacy Has Gone Green Or Something

Funny, the Warmists didn’t complain when Osama Bin Laden was yammering about his worry about ‘climate change’. Or how Islamic extremist groups are trying to co-opt the Hotcoldwetdry movement. Or how extremist nations like Iran are pushing ‘climate change’. Nope, a tiny few “far right” extremist groups (who like government authoritarianism) are joining in

White Supremacy Goes Green

As an environmental journalist, I’ve been covering the frightening acceleration of climate change for more than a decade. As a person who believes in the tenets of liberal democracy, I’ve watched the rise of white-supremacist, anti-immigrant and nationalistic ideologies with similar dread over the past few years.

But I always thought of those two trends — looming ecological dangers and the gathering strength of the far right — as unrelated, parallel crises in a turbulent time. Only recently have I begun to understand that they are deeply interconnected, an ugly pairing of forces drawing power from each other.

From France to Washington to New Zealand, angry voices on the hard right — nationalists, populists and others beyond conventional conservatism — are picking up old environmental tropes and adapting them to a moment charged with fears for the future. In doing so, they are giving potent new framing to a set of issues more typically associated with the left. Often, they emphasize what they see as the deep ties between a nation’s land and its people to exclude those they believe do not belong. Some twist scientific terms such as “invasive species” — foreign plants or animals that spread unchecked in a new ecosystem — to target immigrants and racial and ethnic minorities. And here’s what really frightens me: This dynamic is likely to intensify as climate change creates new stresses that could pit nations and groups against one another.

Beth Gardner is able to offer up just two examples

The neo-Nazi group Northwest Front, which advocates expelling people of color from the Pacific Northwest, appropriated a flag designed by a left-wing activist, reframing it with the slogan “The sky is the blue, and the land is the green. The white is for the people in between.” In Slovakia, far-right activists invoking the centrality of forests to national identity accuse members of the Roma ethnic minority of damaging them with excessive firewood gathering, Balsa Lubarda, a Central European University doctoral candidate studying the radical right, told me.

But, of course, ‘climate change’ is not about ‘climate change’, it’s about every Statist goal

President Trump tapped into this rhetoric in December. Responding to a question about the climate during a visit to London, he added a point about pollution in the ocean. “Certain countries are dumping unlimited loads of things in it,” he said. “They tend to float toward the United States.” He did not specify particular countries, but the comment echoed plastic producers’ contention that much oceanic garbage comes from a handful of Asian nations that lack effective waste management. When I listened to Mr. Trump, I realized that what he said was freighted with something more than a corporate effort to pass the buck. He was casting plastic pollution as a threat that foreigners were visiting upon the United States.

Hmm, so, Trump talks about ocean pollution, and she has a problem with this, because it’s really about stopping illegal aliens.

Some radicals are drawn to apocalyptic climate scenarios, seeing openings for authoritarianism or a complete societal breakdown. “They want to accelerate it,” said Blair Taylor, program director at the Institute for Social Ecology, a left-wing educational center, who has studied such groups. “So after the downfall they can set up their fascist ethno-states, they can be the Übermensch.” Violent actors are grabbing hold of such ideas. The killers accused of massacring Muslims and Mexican immigrants last year in New Zealand and Texas posted online manifestoes weaving white supremacy with environmental rhetoric.

There are really too many hot-takes in this opinion piece, you really have to read it from start to finish. But, I thank her for the handy dandy graphic which I will use for years to come.

      Of course we don’t. First off the DOJ is still full f Hussein leftists (it’s called the Deep State and the Swamp for a reason John). The fake news covers it up just like they cover up black crime stats, or abortion death stats or anything else the elite left wants to hide. Look what they did with “Trump puts kids in cages” when it was King Hussein’s policy!

      Besides, the entire Democommie party is a left wing security threat. Do you want them deciding national policy when they can’t keep a secret for 5 minutes, when they want to disarm all of us? And remember, wherever the left is in power they regulate the police state. Look what they’re doing in Virginia for shit sake.

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    It’s not surprising that the neo-fascist right* is seizing any and all opportunities to unite the right in its drive for authoritarianism. As historian Newton Leroy Gingrich (borrowing from S. Clemens) once proclaimed, “Truth is a commodity”. So even if the right refuses to accept the reality of global warming they may be able to use it for their own gain.

    *Neo-fascism usually includes ultranationalism, racial supremacy, populism, authoritarianism, nativism, xenophobia and opposition to immigration, as well as opposition to liberal democracy, parliamentarianism, Marxism, communism and socialism.

    • formwiz says:

      As Hypocrite Hare proves daily, “Truth is a commodity”, and shows how impoverished he is regarding said commodity.

      And would he care to make a slight purchase in the commodities market by providing a link to his idiotically transparent “definition”?

    • Kye says:

      Can you give us five examples of “Neo-fascism” practiced by countries that do all those things on your list? When you’r finished, perhaps you could enlighten us on the wonders of socialism, communism, and Marxism (that is so redundant buy you seem to believe there’s a difference) since you seem to think they are somehow morally superior to fascism which as defined by it’s creator, Benito Mussolini to be “Everything within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state” which sounds just like any commie or socialist state I’ve ever seen.

      Again, just because you put “neo” in front of a word doesn’t mean it changes history. It’s like your silly “neocon” an such. By the definition given to us by Il Duce its founder fascism is a whole lot closer to socialism, communism and Marxism that it is to right wing anything.

      Name a “neo-fascist” country and describe exactly what makes it “neo-fascist”.

      You leftists just love to split people into camps and set them against one another. That’s why you all hate Trump. You see race, and sex, and age, and religion and culture and a bunch of other crap and think of them as items to be used to harm your fellow citizens.. Trump doesn’t see that. When he talks he addresses all Americans not just your chosen dependents.

          Is that why blacks are supporting Trump by at least a third? And you’re going to have to tell us how the queers are being persecuted.

          And what have we done to immigrants? They seem to be coming in all over the place. Now, if you mean illegals, we just want the law, existing law, much of it written by Lefties, enforced.

          Gays. Trump is appointing Gays in his administration against almost zero backlash from the GOP. The only place Xeonphobia exists is on the democratic platform whose playbook has been to call the right racists, bigots and woman haters for decades because they have few policies actual Americans like other than for a time they were huge union supporters and anti-immigrant.

          Blacks and Hispanics are against unfettered immigration for the same reason the democrats used to be and conservatives are. It destroys our ability to take care of our own.

          The left, progressives and Bernie Sanders want to destroy America by lying to the public daily. Moderates in Republican held districts lie out their asses to get elected then immediately vote however the democrats tell them including against the wishes of their own district.

    We can argue how much that is related to poverty, etc. Some of it comes out of the whole Soul Brother culture (don’t drop a dime…) and hip-hop, which, of course, is pushed by the media.

    My wife, nurse of 52 years, knew a lot of black people who moved away from Da Hood to get away from that stuff, so they are waking up. Seeing some real opportunity, in the form of Trump’s policies, may also have an effect.

    YMMV

  6. david7134 says:

    I would think that some of the violence comes from the hood. But when you see violence through out the world, it appears that a good bit of violence comes from genes. Of course many whites are in the hood as well and they may have violence ingrained in them, but crime stats don’t hear that out.

    Blacks are always going to be second class citizens as long as we excuse their behavior and do not understand that they may not have the same capabilities as Asians and other ethnic groups. Understanding their short comings may allow us to develop programs to address their needs. Same goes for whites who may have short comings, but Jeff tells us that whites are superior.

    • Kye says:

      Using the time honored leftist tactic of ridicule and shame, Elwood tells us “that whites are superior” forcing the cucks to cringe in terror of the “R” word being cast at them like a lightening bolt from Zeus. I on the other hand will not say a man can be a woman, a white can be a Cherokee or a black and I certainly won’t call a murdered baby equal to a blob of shit. So I don’t care. The races certainly do have different “capabilities” and if one has eyes, ears and any sense of perception this fact cannot be denied. It can also not be denied these differences or other capabilities do not reduce the humanity of any race or their worthiness to be treated as human beings with rights AND responsibilities. Equality under the law is a moral precept of God’s not any political party or economic system. Totally equal outcomes however, are impossible because of the millions of individual differences among people one of which is race.

      If they can shut us up with disdain and ridicule they will. Nothing says “racist” like not being permitted to speak about race. They think that will keep us from seeing the truth. They’re stupid to believe that.

      Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. And most of them are college professors and “think tank” people.

    Easy answer. The left wont let blacks work. They keep them on the plantation to harvest votes.

    Just look at your Democratic DEBATE stage.

    White, White and more White. Yet here you stand all righteous and almighty claiming the moral authority on the left.

    Can you explain why Blacks are almost third class citizens under numerous democratic administrations? Can you explain why the first black president with a veto proof majority ignored the black plight in America and passed Dodd/Frank and Obamacare which did nothing to give JOBS or help blacks get out of poverty. It was more welfare.

    Can you explain why Trump has the lowest unemployment rate among Blacks, Hispanics and Asians and WOMEN in the history of the USA while being a racist and a mysoginist?

      President Obama never had a veto proof majority. Check your history.

      Black Americans have a much higher unemployment rate regardless of party in charge. And President Obama was president for all Americans, not just Blacks. Anyway, the ACA would have been good for all the working classes, including Blacks. Dodd-Frank was intended to help prevent the next Great Recession.

        In the immortal words of Daffy Duck, “Oh! That’s rich! I’ll say. Oh! It is to laugh”.
