Going Green

It must be coming up on Earth Day, because everyone is going green these days. I saw some ads on TLC that Stacy and Clinton are going to make over an environmentalist on What Not to Wear, and TLC is going to do a green episode of Flip That House and start some new environmental show.

I won't be watching any of it. I'm sick of all the green... bile they keep trying to shove down our throats (I know, "bile" is what comes up your throat, but it works either way).

And now Time Magazine has offended Iwo Jima veterans with their latest cover illustration. Business and Media reported today on that story.

For only the second time in 85 years, Time magazine abandoned the traditional red border it uses on its cover. The occasion – to push more global warming alarmism.

The cover of the April 21 issue of Time took the famous Iwo Jima photograph by Joe Rosenthal of the Marines raising the American flag and replaced the flag with a tree. The cover story by Bryan Walsh
calls green “the new red, white and blue.”

Donald Mates, an Iwo Jima veteran, told the Business & Media Institute on April 17 that using that photograph for that cause was a “disgrace.”

“It’s an absolute disgrace,” Mates said. “Whoever did it is going to hell. That’s a mortal sin. God forbid he runs into a Marine that was an Iwo Jima survivor.”

Lt. John Keith Wells, the leader of the platoon that raised the flags on Mt. Suribachi and co-author of “Give Me Fifty Marines Not Afraid to Die: Iwo Jima” wasn’t impressed with Time’s efforts.

“That global warming is the biggest joke I’ve ever known,” Wells told the Business & Media Institute. “[W]e’ll stick a dadgum tree up somebody’s rear if they want that and think that’s going to cure something.”

I'm with both of these Marines. Enough already with all the Green propaganda!
