This Kind of Thing Probably Happens a Lot

Remember after the Oklahoma City bombing, how some politicians and activists blamed conservative talk radio for creating a climate of hate? How they didn’t care whom they smeared as long as their goals — a bigger government and silencing of critics — were advanced? Comes to mind …

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., at “Live Earth,” lashing out at industry and polluters for committing “treason”:

[Our] children are going to pay for our joyride with denuded landscapes, with poor health, with huge cleanup costs and with climate chaos which is going to amplify over time and that they will never be able to pay.

From today’s Washington Post.

On a narrow, leafy street in Northwest Washington, where Prius hybrid cars and Volvos are the norm, one man bought a flashy gray Hummer that was too massive to fit in his garage.

So he parked the seven-foot-tall behemoth on the street in front of his house and smiled politely when his eco-friendly neighbors looked on in disapproval at his “dream car.”

It lasted five days on the street before two masked men took a bat to every window, a knife to each 38-inch tire and scratched into the body: “FOR THE ENVIRON.”

    you are waaaaaaaaay too kind about the outrageous Hummer incident. This shows the kind of civil war that will take root if the Gore crowd gets in power. Moreover, what about all the air conditioners that all those nice DC neighbors are running this hot summer and the lawnmowers they use? Should some thug come along and bash all those into smithereens too? Eco civil war is at hand.
