Hat tip to Paddy over at CQAE for the video link.
Here’s Joe Hildebrand going for it on the Paul Murray Live show. PM Live is an excellent show, by the way, and one no lefty would ever watch as they wouldn’t have subscribed to Fox because; 1) “Ooh, evil Murdoch Empire”, and, 2) “I never got picked for any team sports at school so why would I want to watch the sports channels now?”.
Hildebrand gives several reasons why The Greens are hilarious and odious while denied any power yet dangerous as hell if allowed within the merest sniff of government.
Here’s a few more, in no significant order;
1. Caring for the environment is a universal human desire; no-one wants to live in a polluted shit-hole. The Greens politicise this and mandate that the first solution to any environmental issue is a governmental one.
3. The Greens hate humans. That means they hate you and they hate me. They hate my kids and yours. They hate everyone you’ve ever met and will ever meet. It would be better if we all had never been born. “The Earth has a cancer and the cancer is Man“, apparently.
4. Most Greens are on benefits and have been all their lives. Someone else has paid for their life of judgement and disapproval. If the only job they’ve ever had has been in the public sector or for a company that has exclusively public sector revenue then they’re on benefits. Of course, to them this is justified by point (2) above.
5. They have no sense of humour. The opposite of a sense of humour is boorish and cloying earnestness. Think back to every Green you’ve ever met; did they make you laugh (intentionally) or did they have a bit of a tendency towards righteous hectoring?
Greens being taken seriously scare the willies out of me. Not because I worry about putting a silly made up
price tax on a naturally-occurring element but because there is truth in the joke that they are “water melons”; green outside, red at heart.
Judge people on their actions. The Greens’ actions always tend towards bigger government regardless of the denuding of personal freedoms which might ensue. At best they will impose their world view on you expensively, but I deeply suspect what they are capable of at worst.
Recently, a Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner in England had to resign for Tweeting that Socialism and
National Socialism Nazism had more in common than in difference.
I’d go one step further in today’s contribution to reinforcing Godwin’s Law. I’d suggest that The Greens are closer than Socialists to that totalitarian extreme for one key reason; they hide their true aim behind an obfuscation of faux do-goodery.
At least when a Socialist starts dribbling on about the revolution, emancipation of the masses and the glory of the Supreme Soviet and how it didn’t fail but simply wasn’t given enough time to succeed, you can point and laugh.
Someone justifying and implementing theft to save the planet from an unproven threat is a whole lot more scary, however.
