George Will Exposes the Sinister Motives of “Environmentalists”

Well, it’s been a nice ride, but the jig is up.  Our phony “concern” over the environment has enabled us to create a huge all-encompassing socialist nanny state.  But now George Will has exposed us.  It looks like we’ll have to come up with another gimmick with which to brainwash even more millions of Americans into surrendering their freedom and liberty.

I can’t speak for any of my fellow Big Government Liberals.  They might choose to continue with their crocodile tears over the environment, as a means toward achieving our agenda of destroying free enterprise.  But I don't think this tactic will work much longer.  Thanks to George Will — and various think tanks like the Heritage Foundation and the Heartland Institute — the American People have seen through our ruse.

So I’m going to go ahead and come clean:  I personally don't give a flying fuck about the environment, clean air, drinkable water or a bunch of smelly animals.  It was just a ploy to achieve greater government control over every facet of every American’s daily life.  And it worked.  We've created layers and layers and layers of stifling federal bureaucracy, and we've destroyed millions of productive jobs.  But there is still so much more to do.  We will need to find another gimmick, another smokescreen, with which to achieve our Socialist Agenda.

George Will nailed it:  the last straw for me and my fellow Socialists was the fact that in 2011, America became a net exporter of petroleum products.  Damn it!  As George Will puts it:

“Because progressivism exists to justify a few people bossing around most people and because progressives believe that only government’s energy should flow unimpeded, they crave energy scarcities as an excuse for rationing — by them — that produces ever-more-minute government supervision of Americans’ behavior.”

He also says:

“An all-purpose rationale for rationing in its many permutations has been the progressives’ preferred apocalypse, the fear of climate change. But environmentalism as the thin end of an enormous wedge of regulation and redistribution is a spent force.”

In other words, our cover has been blown.  We need to come up with a new one.  Our ultimate goal remains the same, of course:  a gigantic smothering Orwellian nanny state which will completely stamp out every last shred of individual initiative.

I just HATE it when somebody starts a successful business and makes money from it.  Building a better mousetrap?  That’s the responsibility of the GOVERNMENT, not some uppity individual.  I absolutely LIVE for the thrill of confiscating somebody’s hard-earned money and redistributing it to his next door neighbor who refuses to work.

Comrades, do not be discouraged.  We will bury them.  For the moment, it’s back to the drawing board.  But we WILL ultimately achieve our agenda of brainwashing, enslaving and micro-managing the American People.

This is easy... Alternative Energy! Just think of the government overlay on things like solar and wind energy. And if you think that's something, just wait until we unravel nuclear fusion! Katie bar the door. The damned government will have us by the shorts.

Yeah and I bet when Obama used to stir the pot in the streets of Chicago his followers got behind him because of his deep concern on the environment. I know this this because his Green Czar Van Jones said so.

“Because progressivism exists to justify a few people bossing around most people..."

Absolutely, Tom. That damn progressive 1%. Stifling our energy production and creating an energy shortage. It was such an energy shortage that not only were we a net exported of fuel, it was our LARGEST export. If we did not product that exported fuel and instead reduced our import of foreign oil, we could have reduced our oil imports by over one-third.

Those damn progressive oil companies.

George Will is paranoid and delusional, and he seems very concerned that Obama will get re-elected, to the point that he is writing stuff that is, well... kind of weird. He never wrote stuff this vicious or 'over the top' until Obama got elected. Will's column appears in our local paper weekly, and for all his intellectual skill, what he writes has gotten laughingly predictable.

Whereas Will used to write 'smart', now about all you can expect from him is more projection, as Jerry Critter points out.

Lisa, are you concerned about having clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and disease-free food to eat?

Conservatives believe in Clean Air, Water in Food, they just don't believe the Government should get involved in it, that private Industry can be trusted enough to police itself - something the rest of us would be laughing about but we know we have to eat, drink, and breathe that stuff too.

Fundamentalist believe God gave man (read: Christian, European Descent) the planet to prosper and do what he will with. God will fix things should it get too dirty.

Of course, God's fix-it plan last time was a flood that covered the whole planet.

Of course not. Conservatives don't care about that stuff. Just ask Obama,he'll tell you

Anon may believe that "private Industry can be trusted enough to police itself", but clearly that is not the case. If it was, government would not have to get involved.

Mr. C: Yes, Solyndra was just the beginning of our evil plan. Multiply that by a few thousand, and we'll bring this evil capitalist country to her knees :)

Jerry: LOL. The oil companies sure do fit George Will's definition of "progressive."

Snave: George Will has usually seemed fairly level-headed, even when I disagree with him (which is most of the time). But he's completely off the deep end in this column.

Erik: Yup, you've got 'em dialed. Conservatives think a trillion-dollar corporation whose decisions affect millions of people, should be free to do whatever they want without any meddling from gubmint bureaucrats. At the same time, people's private personal behavior, that affects nobody else, needs to be completely monitored and controlled by the government. Go figure.

J: First a flood, next a global heat wave.

Jerry: Erik (Anonymous) isn't conservative; he's just quoting their backwards "logic."

My apologies to Eric for misreading his comment.

Lisa, I find it odd that you tend to see Obama as such an all-seeing authority. Thus you plan to vote for him in November, right? ;-)

Dream on Snave. The only time I would vote for Obama if one of the choices were "Present"

The net import/export of "petroleum products" represents considerably less than 1% (22 million barrels) of the total "crude oil and petroleum products" (5,300 million barrels of crude oil) market in the U.S. That Will uses this tiny fraction of the market to support an argument for energy abundance is ridiculous. Hold him to account for his sloppy, misleading use of facts.

Our net exports of petroleum products represents more than one-third of our oil imports. In other words, we could reduce our crude imports by one-third and stop exporting fuel without impacting our domestic supplies.
