Sustainable Libtards

by Brad Nelson   7/9/14

Do you want to see a good example of the Religion of Leftism? Take a look at this “Sustainable Tourism on Vashon” statement.

Do I need to parse it for you or do you see it as self-evidently silly as I do? Okay, I’ll parse it nonetheless. But all I really wanted to do was check out the bike routes on Vashon Island, not hug Mother Gaia and “connect the island globally,” whatever the hell that means.

Stick with me on this. I know you probably read enough of this gibberish, but I’ll try to make it funny.

The Sustainable Tourism On Vashon, (STOV) offers classes, educational tours and activities that are small scale, low impact, culturally sensitive, community orientated, primarily nature based, educational and capable of broadening peoples minds and enlivening their souls that provide a unique experience, firmly grounded in sustainable principles and practices.

Pardon my French, but what kind of an idiot thinks such moronic thoughts? What’s a “low impact, culturally-sensitive” bike tour? Okay, I’ll agree to “keep off the grass” where appropriate. I won’t pee on any trees if that will appease the Green Nazis. And I’ll be “culturally-sensitive” and won’t laugh at or mock the libtards who still have Obama bumper stickers on their car. Deal? I can do that.

And did you catch the “enliven your souls” aspect? Thank you very much, but I’ll do so by contemplating God, nature, and man’s place in the scheme of things. But you won’t find a bit of “soul” in this secular/socialist environmental wacko stuff. You’ll just find stuff that sounds silly.

And speaking of souls, my doesn’t need to be “enlivened.” It needs to be deepened and strengthened. Again, it shows you the libtard orientation of the Religion of Leftism. It’s all just another form of “fulfillment” or entertainment.

Not all of that stuff is bad. There’s nothing wrong with promoting artistic and agricultural activities, for example, although for libtards they probably think they do need to “promote agricultural activities,” or what the rest of us folk know as “farming in order to have something to eat.” But for libtards it’s an “activity” to be designated a “destination.”

Anyway, thanks for allowing me this small rant. Sometimes I just have to do this or else my head would explode. I may or may not go to Vashon Island this weekend for some biking adventures, perhaps a chance to show the “sustainability” of my peddling stroke (and I am getting in rather good shape). I think I’ll be heading north instead. But I was just scoping the island out for future recreational activities. Maybe I’ll stop by for the Wiccanfest, which I’m sure a place such as this will likely have.

About Brad Nelson

I like books, nature, politics, old movies, Ronald Reagan (you get sort of a three-fer with that one), and the founding ideals of this country. We are the Shining City on the Hill — or ought to be. However, our land has been poisoned by Utopian aspirations and feel-good bromides. Both have replaced wisdom and facts.

    The amusing thing is the idea that liberals have individual souls. Since they consider it their duty to think in unison, I figure it would be more like one soul divided up among the whole lot of them.

    Since urine contains both water and fertilizer, I would think it would be very useful for plants, and thus a very Green thing to give them. Call it “night fluid” in anaology with “night soil”, and pee away if you need to.

      Oh, it’s just an outlook on life that I find facile and stupid. I’m honest about that.

      Love nature? Sure. Appreciate trees and farms? Absolutely. But as soon as they talk about being joined “globally” then you know you’re talking about a Leftist religious view.

      That may seem like splitting hairs for some. But there is a vast distinction between venerating the created instead of the Creator. I have no wish to be a stupid pagan, even if this aspect is wallpapered over and hidden by PC language to make it sound merely “friendly.” Well, the people in the movie, “The Wicker Man,” were friendly and all smiles. But underneath lurked something wacko.

        Well, they were pleasant to the end. When the policeman played by Edward Woodward talked of being a martyr, the island’s leader was pleased — they wished him well personally. They just needed the sacrifice. Sort of like Tessio betraying Michael Corleone at the end of The Godfather.

    Maybe they are just trying to keep everything balanced so their island doesn’t tip over.

    There is another way to look at it. Take a breath, and try this: this is free enterprise at work. If there is a market for people to feel good about being green, why not offer those products and services that pry those tourists dollars from this pockets? Heck, they even have a Merchandise (“under construction”) on their website. “I was Green at STOV” sounds like a catchy bumper sticker for the Prius…

    Now, just to make this even more jumbled up, STOV just got their 501c3 certification, so your bike ride is tax deductible.

    Just sayin…

      When choosing breakfast cereals, I will passively sit back and let the market decide. But in regards to the very paradigm for our society, we should be more active than that.

      A libertarian attitude is inapplicable to all facets of life.

        After reading that pabulum on the STOV site, I immediately thought of the P.T. Barnum quote:

        There’s a sucker born every minute

        So while I agree they have every right to peddle such nonsense, we have every right to laugh at them and show them for the frauds they are.

        I think their 501(c)3 status is another matter.

    Did Brad just tar my post with the “libertarian” pejorative? Say it ain’t so!

    • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

      I thought I sensed a bit when you went with the “let the market decide” schtick. And there is a time and a place for letting the market decide, such as regarding what kind of light bulb you can buy.

      But without a conscious idea of who we are as a civilization, we will always degenerate to either the lowest common denominator, mindless tribalism, or sheer barbarism…as we are doing now. And I have no love for the libertarian idea that all it takes for a good and free society to work is for a free market.

      But society will not self-organize all by itself with free trade. So I’m doing what Mr. Kung sort of suggested, I’m rebutting and exposing these beliefs. The Left is fond out “outing” things. Well, two can play at that game. I think it’s a good exercise for us all to see just how much Leftism has become not just a political position but a religious worldview.

      Now, having a religious worldview is no inherent reason to mock it. But the Left has a naive, stupid, morally dubious, and inherently corruptive world view. It’s the worldview that sees no difference between Christians minding their own business and Muslims actively blowing people up. After all, in the morally equivalence universe of the “global village” types, they’re all the same (actually, Christians are considered worse).

      And hugging tress and hugging homosexuals doesn’t change the fact that this Religion of Leftism is destructive and stupid and is not a thing to try to base a society on.

      So I think every once in a while we should take note of just how far this BS has come lest we ourselves begin to take it as normal.
