Your Choice–A Green America Or A Brown America
In celebration of Earth Day this Saturday, let’s review how the Sierra Club sold its soul and screwed the Earth for a $100 million donation. They must hate themselves for it, so why shouldn’t we hate them, too?
In 1970, the club adopted a resolution complaining that the country’s growing population was polluting the “air, water and land”—to the point that “our very survival (is) threatened.”
In 1978, the Sierra Club adopted a resolution urging Congress to “conduct a thorough examination of U.S. immigration laws,” noting that the United States, Canada and Australia were the only countries admitting “more than a handful of permanent immigrants.”
In 1980, the club dropped its promotion of birth control, in order to focus on immigration. “It is obvious,” the club said, “that the numbers of immigrants the United States accepts affects our population size and growth rate,” even more than “the number of children per family.”
In 1989, the club’s Population Report expressly called for reducing the number of immigrants.
In 1990, the club’s grassroots leaders voted overwhelmingly to launch a major national campaign on the immigration problem.
Even people who don’t live in yurts can’t help but notice the environmental damage being done by hundreds of thousands of Latin Americans clamoring across the border every year, setting fires, dumping litter, spray-painting gang signs in our parks and defacing ancient Indian petroglyphs.
The problem isn’t just the number of people traipsing through our wilderness areas; it’s that primitive societies have no concept of “litter.” That’s a quirk of prosperous societies. The damage to our parks shows these cultural differences...
Would any of this be of interest to an alleged environmental group? It used to be—until the early 2000s.
That was when the Sierra Club was given $100 million by hedge fund billionaire David Gelbaaum in exchange for never opposing immigration again. [The Man Behind the Land, By Kenneth R. Weiss, Los Angeles Times, Oct 27, 2004] ...
By now, it’s been a quarter-century since the Sierra Club cared about the environment. As is the fate of most groups that stick around long enough, today it’s just another left-wing, hate-America interest group. Unfortunately, among the things the Sierra Club hates about America are its rivers, mountains, hiking trails, parks and wildlife...
