Beck, Corporate Shill Proclaim Climate Bill A 'Watermelon': Thin Layer Of Green On The Outside, 'Communist Red' Inside

Views:

Glenn Beck and his leadoff guest yesterday, Phil Kerpen of the corporate-front global-warming-denier outfit Americans for Prosperity (the same folks who brought you the Tea Parties, were not happy at all with the then-imminent passage in the House of a major component of President Obama's climate-change plan.

So they indulged in some sour watermelon:

Beck: You like watermelon?

Kerpen: I love watermelon.

Beck: I think this is a watermelon bill.

[Begins slicing open melon.]

Kerpsen: I think you're exactly right. This bill is green on the outside -- the thinnest green on the outside, and on the inside, it's deep Communist red.

And, you know, Gorbachev actually runs an environmental group now. I don't know if everyone knows that. But this bill has only the thin sheen of environmentalism. Greenpeace said it will do nothing to help pollution. Even the EPA says it might increase greenhouse gas emissions.

This is just an excuse for central planning, central control of our economy.

The spirit of Joe McCarthy and the John Birch Society lives on. Kind of like those bad old zombie movies.
