The Sierra Staff Strikes Back, With Some Help From The SPLC
Previously by Brenda Walker:
Save The Sierra Club
From The Treason Lobby—Act Now!
In case you haven`t been
following the roiling
controversy within the
Sierra Club, a group of
insurgents seeking seats on the Board of Directors have
been smeared as radical right-wing extremists by the
Club`s fearful permanent officials.
outstanding candidates running for the Board believe
that America`s skyrocketing
overpopulation, driven by out-of-control
mass immigration, must be addressed. They want the
Club to return to the
position it held until
1996: to "bring about the stabilization of the
population first of the United States and then of the
Dick Lamm, former two-term Democratic governor of
Colorado and a life-long active environmentalist;
Frank Morris (PhD from MIT), former Executive
Director of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation
and recipient of three NAACP awards; and David Pimental,
Cornell University Professor of Ecology and the
author of 516 scientific publications.
I last wrote in VDARE.COM on this subject, and urged
immigration reformers to
join the Sierra Club and vote,
several mysteriously similar articles have appeared in
"Sierra Club faces rocky future as extremists push out
greens" by Shawn McCarthy, in the Toronto
Globe and Mail, smeared my VDARE.COM article
apparently without reading it: he reported that the
Southern Poverty Law Center`s (SPLC`s) Morris Dees was running
for Sierra Club Board of Directors in response
to my VDARE.COM article—although that article had
headlined the news that Dees, who has no
environmentalist qualifications, was
already a candidate.
"Founder of civil rights group runs for seat on Sierra
Club board" by Bob Johnson of the Associated
Press, also parroted the Dees line that any rational
discussion of America`s immigration-driven population
growth and its environmental effects is just the
"greening of hate."
Election Becomes a Fight Over Sierra Club`s Future,
by Miguel Bustillo and Kenneth R. Weiss, January 18,
cited Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope, who as
an employee is not supposed to intervene in elections,
uttering this gem of
impartiality: "`I don`t think that Lamm,
Pimentel and Morris are racists,` Pope said,
`But they are clearly being supported by racists.`"
Evidence, allegedly, was my VDARE.COM article and the
fact that it had been picked up (without
our knowledge or permission) by “an anti-Semitic
the Sierra Club" a January 26 editorial in the
Los Angeles Times, endorsed the Sierra staff`s
line. LA Times editorial writers apparently don`t even
read their own paper: a truly fine cover article in
its magazine section (Infinite
Ingress, by Lee Green, January 25) described
in painful detail how the explosive immigration-fueled
population growth in southern California has rapidly
degraded the quality of life for all.
Media has assumed its usual supine position of
stenographer to the powerful in the Sierra Club election
controversy. News stories have been full of
catfight-from-hell descriptions but little illumination.
Stereotypic and untrue categorizations have been used in
place of the most elementary consideration of facts.
highly reputable men described above are accused of
being part of an extremist right-wing conspiracy to
"take over" the Sierra Club.
the fanatical right wing has changed when an African
American and an elected Democrat can be included!
can such an absurd idea be taken seriously? Simple.
These garbage purveyors depend on
Establishment media`s laziness and aversion toward
investigating facts, as well as its
politically-correct reluctance to examine anything
negative about immigration. Accusations based on
innuendo, guilt by association and plain lies are faxed
on fancy stationery to newsrooms. The result is a
complete reversal of reality.
Establishment media apparently still believes that
immigration moderation is an “Extreme Right”
issue, although polls
consistently show that Americans across the
political spectrum want
immigration reduced. The immigration enthusiasts are
elites, who increasingly tell us that open borders
are good for us insignificant little citizens, despite
all evidence to the contrary. The nation state is so
passé, in the view of the really important people.
However, Czech President Vaclav Klaus
warned last year that "you cannot have democratic
accountability in anything bigger than a nation state."
Mark Twain remarked a century ago, a lie can travel half
way round the world before the truth can get its boots
Further, the Internet has created nearly limitless
opportunities for guilt-by-association attacks, a
standard ploy by the artistes of the genre, Morris Dees
and the SPLC. Sadly, not
everyone has learned that the SPLC
spends an inordinate amount of its considerable
riches (over $100 million) in rousting up additional
money, so its accusations receive more serious attention
than they deserve among credulous journalists.
Although they pose as rescuers, the SPLC
mudslingers have in fact been plotting their
insertion into Sierra Club internal affairs for some
time – witness the SPLC`s lengthy letter from Mark Potok
to Sierra Club President Larry Fahn dated October 21 and
posted on GroundswellSierra.com, a website dedicated
to “protecting” the Sierra Club regime.
Ben Zuckerman, an
immigration realist, has speculated that the SPLC
may be looking to the immigration controversy to
fill its coffers since the KKK, with only a couple
thousand members including federal informers, may no
longer elicit the same fundraising response.
the Internet gives as well as takes. At one time, the
alliance between entrenched liberal bureaucrats and a
mouthpiece media would have been unbreakable. Now,
because of the Internet, they can be outflanked and
now! There are only a few more shopping days left in
which to join the Sierra Club and vote for a
sustainable, environmentally recognizable America—Jan.
31 is the cut-off; the election is in early March.
For a mere $25 (introductory membership), you give the
multimillion-dollar Sierra staff-SPLC-Big Media Axis
more to worry about.
