Posted on 04/16/2012 9:05:45 AM PDT by Twotone
The Department of Homeland Security has announced that it will be creating an environmental justice unit that will be overseeing environmental regulations, alongside local governments. The units role of enforcing environmental regulations has prompted critics to refer to the new department as the green police.
The DHS defines environmental justice as the commitment of the Federal Government
to avoid placing disproportionately high and adverse effects on the human health and environment of minority populations and low-income populations.

Everything is Justice, except Constitutional Justice.
environmental justice = Racism!
More out of control government. Why does DHS need to open an “environmental justice” unit?
Fundamental Change is here.
Department of Pre Crime ?
And Being Green is a national security issue under the Dept. of Homeland Security because...???
Now we’re gonna have “Green Shirts” instead of “Brown Shirts” like the Nazis to enforce Party policy and quell dissent?
Be afraid, be very afraid.
Moreover how do they do this without Congressional approval.
We need to aboliash this department ASAP.
What kind of environmental justice is it to jack up prices for energy for the poor?
This is where you can see that Obama does not need Congress.
So far, he is getting away with using executive orders, czars, and regulators.
No one will stop him. If he wins again, we will have a full blown dictatorship.
He is actually getting away with eliminating the middlemen.
He is also trying to eliminate the powers of the Supreme Court.
I love these satire pieces.
Yeah... and get rid of them as well.
In July 1935, Germany’s Nazi regime headed by Adolf Hitler passed the Reich Nature Protection Law. It was one of the most progressive laws of its time. First of all, it was a federal law that applied to the whole country and not just a local ordinance, as had been customary in the past. It was also unprecedented in scope: The law protected nature and the environment in the name of the German people and for their sake, and prevented damage that might have been caused by economic development in undeveloped areas. Anyone whose actions were liable to harm nature or alter the landscape in any significant way, such as developers and building contractors, had to obtain permission from the Reich nature protection office. This legislation also protected bridges, roads, buildings and other landmarks perceived as having German historical-cultural value. It imposed restrictions on advertisements that marred the landscape and, in some cases, banned them altogether. In Britain, legislation of this scope was only introduced after World War II, and in France, as late as the 1960s.
Above all, the phrasing of the Reich Nature Protection Law allowed for various enforcement options. It included a clause, for example, that denied legal recourse to people who could be harmed by the law - such as those who had lost the right to build on private land. After all, in Nazi Germany, the good of “the public” always came before the good of “the individual.” Also noteworthy is the fact that the Reich’s law, which sounded progressive, included clauses that were unmistakably Nazi in tone. It claimed that the landscape of Germany was the foundation for the superiority of the Aryan race. The law was clearly permeated with a “blood and soil” ideology.
The Reich Nature Protection Law was only one of the pinnacles of Nazi “ecological” and “green” legislation. There were laws and ordinances that protected forests and animals, laws against air pollution, and more. The Nazis banned slaughter without stunning the animal, restricted hunting and experimentation on animals, and introduced wildlife study and conservation programs.
Wow, could their actions been any more contrary to their law? I guess burning human bodies wasn’t air pollution. And experimenting on humans wasn’t as bad as experimenting on animals. Of course they had a different definition of “human”.
Rhetorical question, I hope.
Control & intimidation. Make the people fearful in every aspect of their lives and you get a docile and subservient populace.
Environmental Justice = Take stuff from people we hate in the name of people we pretend to love and keep it for ourselves
Simply the vehicle they were driving to their Socialist destination -- Just like the myriad of "causes" that Commielibs are advocating here.
