|Enviros Manhandle Phelim For Asking Tough Questions|

Environmentalists channeled their inner ACORN this week by ejecting Phelim from the premiere of The Age Of Stupid when he asked inconvenient questions that exposed their hypocrisy.
Phelim took the Not Evil Just Wrong team to New York for the "green carpet" premiere of the movie, the latest fear-mongering documentary about global warming. Like James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, the independent film makers who exposed the willingness of the community organizers behind ACORN to foster criminal behavior, Phelim decided to ask obvious questions to reveal the double standards that environmentalists apply to themselves compared with everyone else.
The Age Of Stupid preaches the doomsday scenario of human extinction by 2055 and says humans will be to blame for their own demise because they fly too much. But Franny Armstong, director of The Age of Stupid, and many of the people at the movie's premiere flew to New York for the party. Phelim put them on the spot for flying while trying to deny that travel right to others.
His pointed questions didn't sit well with the organizers of the event or the environmentalists who attended. The film makers and their security team ejected Phelim despite the fact that he had journalistic credentials to cover the event and had done exactly what journalists are supposed to do -- ask probing questions.
As Phelim tried to continue his reporting from the sidelines, the security team repeatedly blocked his camera and his view of the environmentalists headed into the premiere.
"There were lots of other press at the premiere, but they didn't seem interested in seeing if environmentalists even tried to live up to the standards they demand of some of the poorest people on the planet," Phelim wrote of the experience at Big Hollywood. They didn't even seem interested in covering the obvious expulsion of another reporter for asking difficult questions. And they wonder why no one is watching their TV news or buying their newspapers."
