Check Out These Lovely New Heartland Institute Murder Billboards

News

Well look what the end product of tens of millions in donations from rich libertarian energy tycoons and their corporations isat the Heartland Institute: A hilarious series of billboards out on the Interstate saying "Derp derp the Unabomber believed in global warming, derp, splat, are you the Unabomber?" They come in a variety of other mass murderer/dictator flavors, too, because the Heartland Institute is a very serious public policy organization.


This is from the Institute's own website; just read how giddy they are with their fourth-grader-eating-paste billboard idea about nothing. "Ted Kaczynski, the infamous Unabomber." "Fidel Castro, a tyrant." Thanks for the descriptors, really. Who is "Osama bin Laden" though? A global meanypants?

The billboard series features Ted Kaczynski, the infamous Unabomber; Charles Manson, a mass murderer; and Fidel Castro, a tyrant. Other global warming alarmists who may appear on future billboards include Osama bin Laden and James J. Lee (who took hostages inside the headquarters of the Discovery Channel in 2010).

These rogues and villains were chosen because they made public statements about how man-made global warming is a crisis and how mankind must take immediate and drastic actions to stop it.

And so we arrive at the big question:

5. Are you saying anyone who believes in global warming is a mass murderer, tyrant, or terrorist?

Of course not. But we are saying that the ethics of many advocates of global warming are very suspect.

Ooh, ooh, our turn to play this game:

Q: Are you saying that everyone who works for or is affiliated with the Heartland Institute rapes children, drinks their own urine, or fists puppies?

A: Of course not. But we are saying that the ethics of many energy-corporation-sponsored critics of global warming are very suspect.

Well, goddamn it, a wonderful person we'd never heard of until last night is dead. Lyra McKee was 29, an investigative journalist who specialized in looking at the legacy of "the Troubles" in Northern Ireland. She was murdered by someone shooting at police during rioting in Derry, or perhaps Londonderry, depending on who you want to piss off by using either name for the city. The rioting broke out after police "started carrying out searches in the area because of concerns that militant republicans were storing firearms and explosives" in advance of attacks planned to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising. Police are blaming the violence and McKee's death on the "New Irish Republican Army," a radical republican group formed a few years ago from several smaller groups. Despite the name, the group has no ties to the old Provisional Irish Republican Army, which renounced violence and disarmed in 2005 following the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which was supposed to have brought peace to Northern Ireland, and kind of did, at least much of the time.

McKee is being remembered by colleagues and readers as a promising journalist who was expected to go far. A year ago, McKee signed a two-book deal with Faber & Faber; the first of the books, The Lost Boys, an investigation of eight young men who disappeared in Belfast during the Troubles in the '60s and '70s, will be published next year. A 2016 Forbes profile said "McKee's passion is to dig into topics that others don't care about." For instance, CNN reports, McKee spent five years investigating a story about the only rape crisis center in Northern Ireland and its long struggle to regain funding after the government eliminated it.
