Posted on 10/05/2012 11:15:53 AM PDT by Absolutely Nobama
Recently, The Daily Caller released an unedited video of America's First Foreign Born President, Barack Hussein Obama, giving a speech (in what Ann Coulter accurately calls his "Malcolm X voice") at Hampton College in 2007. In this video, the future Chairman Obama yapped about a lot of things, from accusing the US government of letting black folks suffer during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to how wonderful Jew hater Jeremiah Wright is. In short, it was a glimpse into the evil and hatred that makes up the former Barry Soetoro.
Now, for most Conservatives, much of what was revealed wasn't news. While most of us had never seen the video, we all knew that Obamugabe hated whites and had plenty of proof to back it up, ranging from Obama calling his own grandmother a "typical white person" to calling the Cambridge police stupid for locking up angry black radical Henry Louis Gates. We already knew that the Kenyan Usurper thinks America is "Amerikkka", so for many of us, it was somewhat validating, but still old hat.
However, one part of the speech really sticks out like a sore thumb:
We need to give our young people some real choices out there so they move away from gangs and violence and connect them with growing job sectors. That is why I am also going to create a 5-E Youth Service Corps. The Es stand for energy efficiency, environmental education and employment. This program would directly engage disconnected and disadvantaged young people in energy efficiency and environmental service opportunities to strengthen their communities while also providing them with practical skills and experience in important and growing career field.
On the surface, this looks like another government boondoggle at best or another worthless promise made by a pandering politician at worst. No biggie, right ?
Not quite, Dear Reader. What we have here is a call for Komsomol-like indoctrination (and ultimate corruption of) young people. As has been proven countless times, the so-called "green" movement has nothing to do with saving the environment, it has everything to do with the redistribution of wealth, just like everything else the Progressivik movement has inflicted or wants to inflict upon on the American people. But that's not the scary part of all this. The scary part of all this is the fact that it's already happening, with no input or authorization from CONgress.
Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Willis ?
From the America-hating commies at the Environmental Protection Agency, as part of their "Environmental Justice" strategy (Emphasis added where appropriate) :
"EPA Region 1, together with state, county, city, non-profit, and community organizations, is working with several communities in Bridgeport [Connecticut] on a series of environmental justice issues affecting human health and the ambient environment. The Project was designed to expand collaboration among a range of diverse stakeholders in order to solve some substantial environmental issues. Region I has programs designed to improve indoor air quality, encourage green jobs in the community, increase recycling rates, and reduce asthma and toxic exposure in schools and homes. The region awarded $100,000 to support the programming. The Region awarded $25,000 to the Bridgeport Board of Education and the City of Bridgeport to pilot a paper recycling program at two local schools. The Connecticut Coalition for Environmental Justice , a community based organization, will coordinate a community fair focused on asthma, bringing together city organizations working on asthma and healthy homes to effectively share resources.
Green jobs and youth development have been critical program elements. To attract young people into water industry careers, EPA New England worked with the Connecticut Section of the American Water Works Association, the Water and People Program, and the public schools to establish a Water Boot Camp. These groups are leading the way in connecting with youth to teach them about water resources and prepare them for green jobs in water operations. Groundwork Bridgeport will train and develop 20 Bridgeport youth water resource protection advocates, mark 600 street drains indicating that they drain into Long Island Sound and must be kept clean, and organize four neighborhood meetings for residents and local businesses about how they can protect water resources. The Citys Workplace, Inc. jobs training program is devising training for inner city youth to receive waste water and drinking water handler certifications. Beyond the water projects, the region facilitated Greenscaper Training at Bridgeports Beardsley Zoo. The training focused on vegetated rain gardens as a way to control stormwater runoff."
What in the hell is "Environmental Justice" ?
There are two possible answers to that question, Dear Reader. One is propaganda from the Bloated Federal Leviathan and the other is the truth. Let's look at both:
First, the propaganda:
"Environmental Justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. EPA has this goal for all communities and persons across this Nation. It will be achieved when everyone enjoys the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards and equal access to the decision-making process to have a healthy environment in which to live, learn, and work."
And now, the truth, from former UNELECTED "Green Jobs Czar" Van Jones, with emphasis added where appropriate:
"Mother Jones: Can you briefly explain what 'environmental justice' means to you?
Van Jones: Environmental justice is the movement to ensure that no community suffers disproportionate environmental burdens or goes without enjoying fair environmental benefits.
MJ: What's the relationship between environmental justice and sustainability?
VJ: Well, the only reason that we have the unsustainable accounting that we have right now is because incinerators, dumping grounds, and sacrifice zones were put where poor people live. It would never have been allowed if you had to put all the incinerators and nasty stuff in rich people's neighborhoods; we'd have had a sustainable economy a long time ago. We'd have had a clean and green economy a long time ago. It's the environmental racism that allowed the powerful people in society to turn a blind eye for decades to the downsides of the industrial system that got us to this point. So there's a direct relationship between environmental racism and the lack of sustainability of society as a whole. We were the canaries in the coal mines, crying for relief. Now finally the consequences are affecting everyone, with global warming and everything else. The other thing is that the environmental justice agenda is also changing. Before, it was much stronger on demanding equal protection from environmental bad. Now we are also demanding equal opportunity and equal access to environmental good. We don't want to be first and worst with all the toxins and all the negative effects of global warming, and then benefit last and least from all the breakthroughs in solar, wind energy, organic food, all the positives. We want an equal share, an equitable share, of the work wealth and the benefits of the transition to a green economy."
