Environmentalist Whackjobs Backpedal Furiously Away From Global Warming Snuff Film

The infamous 10:10 “Let’s blow up kids who don’t agree with us” video has, belatedly, sparked a backlash when other environmental groups realized this kind of publicity would be bad for their donation stream.

“The video represents the kind of stupidity that really hurts our side, reinforcing in people’s minds a series of preconceived notions, not the least of which is that we’re out-of-control elitists,” (Environmental Extremist Bill McKibben) said.

Yes, you are out-of-control elitist twits. Otherwise, you would have seen how offensive and off-putting your little movie was.

And the thing is, they aren’t backing away from it because they disagree with it. It’s only because they know it’s bad publicity that will alienate the mainstream. This is the same reason NAMBLA is excluded from Gay Pride Parades; bad PR, not moral outrage.

No Pressure
