The Summer Of Environmental Hate

Liberals have been smearing righteously angry Americans all summer for the pointed rhetoric they have aimed at lawmakers, but environmentalists on the left have been the ones spewing hate. Ann and Phelim have been their targets because they have the gall to question the gospel of global warming hysteria in Not Evil Just Wrong.

On his blog yesterday, Toby Harnden of the Daily Telegraph recounted some of the most abusive language -- minus the comments that were so vile YouTube deleted them. Here's an excerpt:

One environmentalist sent McAleer and McElhinney an e-mail describing them as "stinking, selfish, sociopathic fascists" and expressed a desire for them to be executed.

"It is one of my fondest hopes that whatever remnants of human civilization exists at the end of this catastrophe is able to put people like you on trial for crimes against humanity and give you the same treatment Hitler's henchmen got at Nuremberg -- a long drop at the end of a short rope," the e-mail stated. ...

A commenter on YouTube wished that McAleer and McElhinney's children be born handicapped because they were not campaigning against "pollution." ... The couple have been called "hillbillies," "rednecks," "zombies," "dimwits," "brainwashed idiots," "muppets" and "slaves to greedy elitists."

One commenter suggested a tactic for discrediting the couple, writing: "Slander them as tools of big oil/coal. Insinuate they're on a par with Holocaust deniers."

That kind of hostility is typical of radical environmentalists. They have to attack the messenger because they can't defend their propaganda when confronted with contrary facts.

Ann and Phelim have been in the bull's-eye of hateful environmentalists before. The release of their first film about environmental propagandists, Mine Your Own Business, prompted two death threats. A Greenpeace USA leader equated it with pornography and pro-Nazi propaganda when trying to pressure the National Geographic Society not to rent its theater for a screening.

The nasty insults won't keep Ann and Phelim away from the front lines of the war against environmental alarmism, but they have learned one thing from the protests this summer: Keep your fingers away from the mouths of angry leftists, or you may come back with a stump. Words may not hurt, but teeth do!
