Hypocrisy in action - The Enivronmentalist movement

The Left is rife with hypocrisy, and Megan McArdle has called out the environmentalists on it. She highlights a story from the Wall Street Journal (subscribers only) which discusses the problems associated with an overpopulation of deer. Her post's title, Environmentalists, get your guns, perfect. For all those out there who claim to care for the environment, and that humankind has caused all manner of ecological disasters, this is a true call to action. As the WSJ says,
Animal-rights groups such as the Washington, D.C.-based Fund for Animals applaud hunting's decline. That group wants hunting outlawed, and advocates non-lethal methods, such as birth control, to decrease deer overpopulations. But birth control, so far, doesn't really work, say most wildlife managers.

A general rule of thumb among deer biologists is that hunters need to kill 35% to 45% of the females annually to stabilize the population. But in most places, they aren't killing even half that percentage, according to state tallies."

These cute, cuddly Bambis are out there destroying your Mother Earth, go get them! ;)

But they won't. The new liberalism has forsaken reason for the sake of emotion. Groups like PETA simply can't imagine that any animal should be killed, its just too mean. And groups like the Sierra Club won't for one second admit that man is part of the ecosystem, and should perform its function in the food-chain. Man is a hunter, a carnivore, and when we do not perform our duty to the food-chain by killing our natural prey then the environment is not improved, it suffers. But the Left can't get over the emotional attachment that comes with their breed of politics to see what would truly accomplish what they want.

  • The problem lies in both the Left and the right being extremely rigid in their policies and sadly when the time comes for war due to food shortages a lot of blood will be spilled.

    The right wing fascism are like cold blooded robots who don't budge from tradition while the Left are like emotional children who can't handle it when their parents......Oops I mean government caretakers say no.

    Either side serves the same dark forces that are preparing for a New World Order under the illusion of choice.
