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.
Cut back the military and send that money over to supplement the Budget of the EPA.
Yeah sure: That ought to save America/s/
While arrogance in any form or measure is equal parts narcicism and ignorance, Prezzadint Barrio Bummer has redefined just how venally consumed with it any one person can be. The chance exists, despite the mountain empirical evidence to the contrary, that our "president" [sic] actually believes that he is the smartest person in the room at any given moment. But when any churlish, petulant, self-absorbed navel-gazer needs a podium, mirophone, and two teleprompters to address a small classroom of 5th-grade school children, even the least observant or insightful among us has to wonder if they aren't watching a moron of rare and crippling philistinism.
This jigging rump-clown will go down in history as the single-most ridiculous imbecile ever to hold the highest office in the land. The brazenly pandemic media complicity needed to escort this ignoramus past the public and its gatekeeprs into the Oval Office is a badge of shame that will take decades for the Fourth Estate to be scrubbed of the stain from, if ever.
The next President and Congress are going to spend the first year in office undoing all the Anti-American garbage this putz has left in his putrid wake.
From the DHS website:
It’s getting uglier by the day.
Someone please tell me this is satire.
But the real driving force behind this is the goal of penalizing Americans for creating carbon dioxide (or appearing to do so). Eventually there will be federal charges (hate crime?) for burning coal.
The reason for those 450 million rounds of ammo.
You’re welcome. Insidious government... If you haven’t already seen it, you may also be interested in this somewhat related story:
We warned you there would be mission creep. We warned you this would be misused under other Administrations.
Reap the whirlwind...
If you define human beings as things, animals or machines, then there’s no limit to what you can accomplish. That’s the perspective of the monsters occupying the White House.
dead link, and a .shtm secure dead link as well.
I just clicked on it... it worked for me.
Catch a f***in terrorist from time to time and STFU.
The DHS is an UTTERLY redundant branch of government.
And that from people who should have been on our "side" of the issues.
Our bipartisan locals will now be empowered to rob you for anything that you try to do on your own property. The depopulation effort against rednecks resumes.
got a not-authorized page, then realized it was an https secure link. Not something I’m going to click again
sounds like where ever you are linking from does not approve of JBS web site, and is filtering it out. .
We can never have enough DHS Federal police thugs on duty. I wonder if they will be sexually molesting everyone for the sake of global warming.
