Check Out These Lovely New Heartland Institute Murder Billboards
Well look what the end product of tens of millions in donations from rich libertarian energy tycoons and their corporations is at 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 theUnabomber?" 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.
