Environmentalists giving away Earth Day condoms to combat overpopulation
Daily Caller ^ | 3/21/2014 | Michael Bastasch

Posted on 03/22/2014 9:39:38 AM PDT by rktman

In honor of Earth Day this year, groups are giving out 44,000 “Endangered Species Condoms.”

The environmentally friendly condoms will be distributed in an effort to refocus the green holiday back to why it was started: to campaign against “runaway human population growth and overconsumption.”

“April 22 is the 44th Earth Day, and this year we want to bring the holiday’s focus back to its origins: runaway human population growth and overconsumption, the root causes of our most pressing environmental crises,” the Center for Biological Diversity wrote in a pitch to its supporters.

Oh had their parents only used these lo those many years ago. Early enough to start planning your own counter celebration. Load up those gas cans, prep your grills, plan a bonfire, buy some 100 watt bulbs for this special occasion and ready your vehicles for all day cruises or maybe just to leave running in the driveway all day long. They certainly have marketed this load of crap well. As an aside, pressure from special interest groups obviously have influence on corporations when you see just how many have bought in to this crap. It's one thing to be a good steward but a totally different things to be a slobbering zombie about this. If they really cared, the would commit themselves to the "ultimate" in honoring gaia. Funeral pyres be damned. But of course they want you/us gone so things are "better" for them. Um, no!

Send them to the Third World for crying out loud.

For all that matter — send battalions of surgeons to perform free vasectomies.

I kinda like the idea of giving them the old “Naked and Afraid” treatment. If so called pro survivalists bail on the show before 3 weeks is up, what sort of chance do ya think these asshats would have? Drop ‘em in the middle of a wonderous environment like the Amazon so they can get up close and chummy with gaia. Ah, communing at it’s finest. Maybe they could “friend” some pirhanas.

By “them” I meant condoms.

But your observations are well stated.

Margaret Sanger is watching from Hell as all the “wrong people” (in her eyes) fill the earth with their offspring...

PJ O’Rourke pointed out years ago that “overpopulation” is liberal code for “the wrong people are being born”.

Absolutely; my point was that these 44K condoms aren’t being distributed in Nairobi or Mexico City.

Case in point: put a liberal in a crowded coffee house jammed with other like-minded latte sipping, prius driving liberals and they are happy as clams. Put them in Dhaka Bangladesh and next thing you know they are wailing and emoting over “overpopulation”.

Just shows they’re the same Malthusians who have been pushing the overpopulation idea for years. These radical environmentalists consider human beings a virus on the planet, and think we don’t belong in ‘nature’. It’s a religion to them, plain and simple, and anyone who doesn’t agree is a heretic.

I think the “naked and afraid” crew should have left the cameras with the survivalist volunteers and then departed the island saying “See you this time next year, hope you have a lot of film for us to make a show from.” And then come back in a year and see if anyone was still alive.

Yeah, isn't it ironic that radical environmentalists are liberals who proclaim they are not the racists ones, all the while working hard to limit the numbers of 'brown people' being born?

If they think the Earth is overpopulated or will become overpopulated, why don’t they kill themselves?

If they claim to be true survivalists, then there should be no “medical emergency backup.” In a real world situation, there wouldn’t be. In the perfect non-technological back to native love of Gaia they want there won’t be....thus let them have their primeval perfection to live or die in.

Why don’t they just put their money where their mouths are and shoot themselves.

Then I might be impressed with their level of commitment to the cause.
