Radical Left Fanatics
Townhall.com ^ | December 15, 2012 | Bob Beauprez

We have all seen the outrageous, even violent, demonstrations by the leftist big-labor protesters in Michigan over the recently adopted Right-to-Work legislation.  The mirror image happened last February-March when Gov. Scott Walker and the Wisconsin legislature similarly addressed labor laws.

It seems the left – the same people with those "Tolerance" and "Diversity" bumper stickers on their Subaru – are the first ones to cross the line of civility.   

In my home state of Colorado the left's latest hot button is hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking."  Fracking has been used for more than 60 years to successfully drill over a million oil and gas wells in the U.S.  Nonetheless, the prevailing mythology on the radical left is that the technology is "poisoning our children" by polluting the water we drink and the air we breathe.

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, avowed environmentalists themselves, have testified to Congress that there is no documented evidence of ground water contamination from any fracked well.  But, the facts don't get in the way of the radicals real objective.  They won't stop until there are no wells drilled at all, anywhere, fracked or otherwise. 

In my native Boulder County, Colorado the fracking fanatics are out in force.  They are marching door-to-door, petitions and mythology in hand, and they are storming city council and county commissioner meetings.  For the unknowing, the left would be hard pressed to find a more accommodating political environment than Boulder County.  The radicals have owned the Democrat Party here for decades. Obliging elected Democrats willingly pander to the radical lefties who elevated them to their throne. 

But, even that isn't enough for the radical fracking fanatics who have showed up at recent Boulder County Commissioner public hearings.  The modified regulations adopted by Colorado just last year have already been described as the most stringent of any state in the nation.  But, that's not enough for this crowd.

At the insistence of these radicals, the Boulder County is considering overlaying existing federal and state regulations with even more restrictive local rules. This latest radical environmental movement is being carried out by extremists throughout Colorado in virtually every county and municipality. 

Just in case you thought over-the-top protests only happened in Lansing, Michigan or Madison, Wisconsin, take a look at the following to videos from recent Boulder County Commissioners' public hearings. The first shows the shameless conscription of children into the fray.  Be sure to watch the second one to the end to see the stalking of two Encana women employees to their car at night after they left the meeting amid taunting shouts including "where do you live" and "where do your kids go to school." 

This is right up there with State Representative Douglas Geiss who said, "There will be blood, there will be repercussions" for the left not getting their way in Michigan. Then realize that whether it is about unions, fracking, a mouse, fern, or whatever, this is how the "tolerant left" plays the game, and they are likely coming to your town, too.

Modern day leftists are like little children who have a fit when things don’t go the way they like. It fits well with the socalled “noble savage” theory of Rousseau.

Of course we don't know the motive(s) of the cold blooded murderer, but we do know he has psychiatric issues (according to the brother) and is a computer nerd (according to a neighbor, a young man who is an acquaintance).

1. There are too many on dangerous drugs, probably prescribed, who pose threats of violent behavior - a serious problem - what to do??
2. These young people who stay on the computer, probably engaged violent games,who are addicted to porn, etc.and develop warped minds and diminished souls and who pose threats of violent behavior - a serious problem - what to do??

The way to defeat these fracking thugs is with some cold hard science.

A forceful recitation of what fracking is and what the risks really are is what is needed.

This will send them into orbit and they will expose themselves for the fascists they are.

Americas “left” is as tolerant as Stalin, Mao, Pol-Pot, Count Dracula, any North Korean Dictator....
They do not get “their way” and the “purges” will begin..
Maybe already have begun..

The brain wash has begun in earnest, a bit more subtle than North Korea but it is relentless..
The BORG Hive has arrived in Washington D.C....

Correct industry usage is "frac" not "frack" (sic).

To frac, frac'ing, etc. -- short for "fracture". As in, "massive-frac techniques are about 50 years old."
