I hate to pass up Lenin’s birthday. That would make all the little leftist revolutionaries mad–one of their own was ignored. So we will commemorate Lenin’s birthday only we will use the euphemism that all the modern leftists use. We will call it Earth Day.
I always found it interesting that when Earth Day was first promoted back in 1970 that the day they picked to celebrate it, by the sheerest of coincidences, just happened to be the 100th anniversary of Lenin’s birth. When I tried to tell that to the evangelicals they said I wasn’t being “loving” enough toward their brethren (theirs, not mine) on the left.
WEBCommentary editor Bob Webster, on http://www.webcommentary.com has written: “As part of the global campaign to ‘dumb down’ education and create good little socialists, the communist movement spawned ‘Earth Day’ on the day they normally celebrated communism and V. I. Lenin’s 1870 birthdate. As the utterly merciless inhumanity known as communism went through its ultimate collapse in the 1980s communists who were later to become known as ‘watermelons’ (green on the outside, red on the inside) simply morphed into ‘green activists’ for ‘environmental extremism.’ The US Environmental Protection Agency harbors these people today and they dutifully churn out regulations designed to destroy capitalism (their ultimate objective).” I would only disagree with one thing he says. Their ultimate aim is to destroy Christianity. Of course they will destroy capitalism in the process.
Mr. Webster noted a few things people could do in regard to this:
1. “Ignore Earth Day celebrations” . A Yahoo article noted that 70% of the people were paying no attention to Earth Day. That’s good. But if Lenin’s birthday is mostly being ignored that means that the Watermelon Gang will try to redouble their propaganda efforts to make us all feel guilty of destroying the planet.
2.” If you have children, carefully explain the difference between conservation and environmental extremism. Monitor what they are taught in school and be prepared to correct the propaganda”. My family and I have traveled, camped, and hiked over many parts of the country over the years. I consider myself to be a conservationist. I realize that “the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof” and with that in mind we are to be good stewards of the land. That’s not the same thing as the crushing Marxist regulations that the environmental bureaucrats want to force down our throats.
Environmental extremism is nothing more than green communism. We have a program in this country called “sustainable development” which is part of the United Nations Agenda 21 project. What this says, in essence, is that we have to be so careful as to how we use the land that we must all be herded into urban areas to live, no private property or single family homes anymore, no air conditioning, as that taxes the resources too much, and on and on it goes. You might then wonder who will get to use all this land they hope to end up clearing people out of. Why the commisars will of course. Part of the price they are paid for the over-regulation of the masses will be the use of what they tell us we can’t use anymore–just like in all other communist countries.
This is what Earth Day is all about. Still sure you want to celebrate it?
