Way back in 1970 the “Environmentalist Movement” so called, was launched upon an unsuspecting public in the form of Earth Day, on April 22nd of that year. There was so many “environmental” events pushed at that time that I can’t remember them all. The vast majority of them came from the political and religious Left and were, if you take a close look at them, designed to control people’s lives to a large extent.
An almost totally overlooked fact about April 22, 1970 was that it just happened to be the 100th anniversary of the birth of Lenin, the first butcher of the Soviet Union. Now what made the promoters of “Earth Day” choose this particular date for their yearly observances? Coincidence? Slightly possible, but hardly likely. Movements that originate on the Left are very conscious of the symbolism of certain dates and one of the mind games they play on the rest of us is that they get us to celebrate those dates they deem important but they give them different names so we celebrate their important date without realizing it. Hence the title of this article.
Many astute commentators have recognized the true origins of the environmentalist movement. Years ago one of them noted that the environmentalist movement had picked up the nickname of “the watermelon gang” and that was because they “were green on the outside and RED on the inside.” I think that is a very apt description of them. Under the noble-sounding description of promoting a healthy environment what they actually promote is cultural Marxism on a grand scale, getting government to promote their agenda where they can get away with it. In the end it is all about promoting some form of One World Government. The “energy crisis” and “global warming” aka Climate Change are all part of this, as is the United Nations Agenda 21 program with its “economic sustainability” program. All these projects have one end in mind–control of the populace as to what they can do, what they should think, or where they are permitted to go.
Back in 2009 an article on http://www.climatedepot.com for July 10th of that year noted: “Former Vice President Al Gore declared that the Congressional climate bill will help bring about ‘global governance’.” Gore also observed: “But it is the awareness itself that will drive the change and one of the ways it will drive the change is through global governance and global agreements.”
There was also an article, also back in 2009 on http://www.freerepublic.com for 11/26 of that year that stated: “Obama’s socialist Science Czar John Holdren, who once said that forced abortions were needed to save the planet, is also involved in the Climategate Scandal. Holdren, another socialist in the White House, was pushing global cooling before he was pushing mad-made global warming.” It seems that the Leftists who want to control every aspect of our lives want to have it both ways. If global cooling won’t do the trick then how about global warming?
I also ran across another article that said: “”Global warming fraud exposed by email hackers.” This give you any idea as to why the feds are suddenly so hot to crack down on email hackers? Even George Will got into the act in a 2009 article on http”//www.newsmax.com when he talked about the agenda for a Climate Summit in Copenhagen. He observed that: “Its organizers had hoped it would produce binding caps on emissions, global taxation to redistribute millions of dollars, and micromanagement of everyone’s choices.” There’s that old Marxist “redistribution of the wealth” scam–all part of the phony “environmentalist movement.”
All this and lots, lots more can be traced back to the 100th anniversary of Lenin’s birth., So, in the final analysis Earth Day is really a celebration of Lenin’s birthday and earmarks a whole new level of attempted Leftist/Deep State control over our lives.
