Enviro SPOG Detective Challenges BIAW Rep for Mayor of Crazytown
posted by June 11 at 18:02 PMon
So you thought the Building Industry Alliance of Washington—whose representatives have compared environmentalists to Hitler, attributed global-warming and growth-management laws to “radical environmentalists”; and referred to Gov. Chrstine Gregoire as a “heartless, power-hungry she-wolf who would eat her own young to get ahead”—was the wackiest right-wing game in town? Well, get ready: The Seattle Police Officers Guild is giving the BIAW a run for its money. Introducing the editor of SPOG’s newsletter, Detective Ron Smith:
Each time I hear the Mayor come up with a new “green idea to save the planet I laugh it off as part of the talking points of the environmental extremist movement. A movement that is hysterical to me, as just about 40-years ago we had so-called experts saying: “Because of increased dust, cloud cover and water vapor “…the planet will cool, the water vapor will fall and freeze, and a new Ice Age will be born,” Newsweek magazine, January 26, 1970”… Anyway, the reason I bring this up is the Mayor doesn’t want you to buy bottled water, and wants to ban its sale in city buildings. While I am sure it makes him feel greener than Kermit to hate bottled water and love Cedar River tap water, I wonder what the Mayor wants people to drink when “the big one” levels parts of Seattle and the people are left to provide for themselves. … Plus, if bottled water were banned in the city, what would his buddy Obama have to give those fainting women in the crowd when he comes back to town? A pre-positioned glass of Cedar River tap water of course!”
Global-warming denial, mockery of “radical” ideas like drinking tap water, dated, off-point jokes (“greener than Kermit,” HAR!) and irrelevant arguments—all in one badly typo-ridden package! But at least he doesn’t call anyone a Nazi.
