What’s an environment ad without a Native American?

H/T No Frakking Consensus…

    Wonderful. “It’s time to see how fast a Bugatti Veyron gets from 0 to 100 on whale diesel”. Quite. One of the great myths about native Americans is that they lived in harmony with the environment – whatever that means. They didn’t. They interacted with it like every other bugger. They changed it. They hunted horses to extinction for example. The idea that the Pilgrims et al turned up to find an “unspoiled” land is romantic nonsense.

    hedgehog,
    My wife is about to pick up our 1.0L Corsa from it’s MOT. It goes like molasses in North Dakota in January. Anyway, I don’t care about that! Unless it does Mach 2 and has shark teeth on it I couldn’t give a fuck. The Corsa is useful for going to TESCO mind.

    This is a pro-environmentalism piece, lampooning the idiocy of those of us opposed to environmental action. We’re so stupid, we want to stop the environment. Kind of thing.

    A member of the Campaign for Peace and Democracy and Democratic Socialists of America. Asner served two terms as president of the Screen Actors Guild, in which capacity during the 1980s he opposed US policy in Central America. He played a prominent role in the 1980 SAG strike.[11] He has also been active in a variety of other causes, such as the movement to free Mumia Abu-Jamal and the movement to establish single-payer health care in California, California One Care, for which he created a television advertisement.

    You think he’d be appearing in something right wing attacking one of the core leftist narratives? The underlying message is that only stupid people would agree with the people portrayed on the screen. Maybe we are pretty stupid if we don’t see that.
