Well, gee, we’ve only got a few months left till the end o’ the world, and all those plans, see, they aren’t fast enough, we can’t wait, even bombing Russia or eating dead people won’t be fast enough–
So… “We’ve got to eat the babies” to Save The Planet.
This modest proposal was trotted out by a woman wearing a “Save the Planet, Eat the Children” T-shirt at a “town hall” for Congresswoman Alexandria O’Crazy-O Cortez at the Queens Public Library in New York. My wife, not a trusting soul, believes this person was trying to bait Craze into saying something totally stupid. I don’t know. The label on the video says the woman is from a “pro-Trump group” trying to “troll AOC,” but I suppose it’s possible this woman was a genuine fruitcake. Anyway, not even Alexandria O’Crazy-O Cortez is going to say, “Yeah, we gotta eat the babies.” She did say, “fortunately we have more than a few months,” and although we have to “treat the climate crisis with the urgency it presents,” “We are never beyond hope.” AOC shows no sign of suspecting that this kook might not be entirely sincere.
Do you think it’s an altogether good idea for public figures to run around convincing people–especially young people whose minds have been rendered totally defenseless by their, ahem, education–that Doomsday’s just around the corner, holycowwe’reallgonnadie…? Do you think there may be adverse consequences to stampeding people into panic? Like, maybe it’s not such a wise thing to do?
But AOC, Obama, all those twits at the UN, the whole Climbit Change marching and chowder society–by their fruits you shall know them! And if they act like they believe a single word of the sheer crapola that they’re dishing out to us, I’m Spartacus. With their private jet jaunts off to Davos, their stretch limos, their new palaces built three feet off the high tide line–well, boy howdy, if you could harness their hypocrisy, you could replace all the fossil fuels overnight.
Just how crazy do they want their followers to be? And if the needle shoots into the danger zone at the far end of the dial, how do you move it back?
But that’s something that they’ve never thought of.
