Yes, the oil spill has silver lining. Unfortunately, it is only for environmentalists who pretend to care about the environment. Last week film critic Roger Ebert was the latest to advance a phony ideology, looking past the current crisis in the Gulf of Mexico by pushing clean energy instead. Just like Ebert and President Obama, Beatle Paul McCartney is the latest celebrity to prove his blind allegiance to the ‘green’ movement at the expense of common sense.
While everyone certainly has an opinion about the oil spill, usually it is either you agree or disagree with how it is being handled. However, McCartney goes a step further with his analysis, The Sun reports:
But passionate green campaigner Sir Paul McCartney believes the environmental disaster may have a silver lining, with the search for clean, renewable energy now being pushed forward. The Beatles legend said:
“Sadly we need disasters like this to show people. Some people don’t believe in climate warming – like those who don’t believe there was a Holocaust. But the facts indicate that there’s something going on and we’ve got to be aware of it if we want our kids to inherit a decent world, not a complete nightmare of a planet – clean, renewable energy is for starters.”
Pushing a green agenda is common and expected, not to mention cliché for celebrities. However, the main offense is that McCartney compares global warming deniers to that of Holocaust deniers. Even Al Gore wouldn’t make that leap! This comparison is on the same level as the “Bush is Hitler” blurb that was so popular with the intellectually bankrupt people on the Left.
As expected, McCartney turns his head to the oil spill and pushes for green energy. Once again, a celebrity says ‘oh well’ to the wildlife in the Gulf. McCartney has been speaking for an anti-Whaling organization, a noble cause indeed but why does he have give the president a pass on the spill response?
In lockstep with blind Obama worshipers, McCartney says:
“I don’t accept the criticism of Barack over the oil spill. I think he’s been great.”
At this point anyone who thinks the U.S. government is doing a great job is delusional. The spill has only gotten worse; we are only now accepting help from other countries that we obviously needed right out of the gate. McCartney has to know it is bad when it appears Kevin Costner has put more into the cleanup effort than our own president.
The fact remains; the continued exploitation of this spill to further a different agenda instead of aiding the wildlife in danger, shows the true colors of the environmental movement.
