Greens are crazy the world over…and evil

We all know how crazy our Greens are. We also know that Green policies actually kill people, like the victims of Australian bushfires killed by Green policies preventing back-burning in cooler months.

The election int he Uk is proving interesting, mainly for two reason…the crazies of the UKIP and the really cray types in the Green party.

James Delingpole explains:

Many years ago, when I was a young diarist working for the Daily Telegraph’s Peterborough column, my bosses dispatched me to cover the Green Party conference. This wasn’t because I was particularly anti-Green at the time. Rather it was because, of all Peterborough’s staffers, I was known to be the one least interested in politics and the political process, so it seemed entirely appropriate to send me to the big joke event in the conference season, rather than to one of the more serious events.

The only thing I remember about the event was being inveigled into some fringe activity in which I was forced to participate with various Green delegates in some kind of non-competitive group bonding exercise where we all had to roll about on the floor. Someone let out the most repellent fart. It smelt evil but everyone present politely conspired to pretend that everything was normal. I sense something similar going on right now in the collective efforts of the media chattering classes to present the Green Party as a viable, vibrant and credible force in UK politics in the approach to the General Election.

Classic Delingpole sledging.

He continues to explain why he thinks they are evil and wrong.

Apparently the Green Party’s membership has now overtaken UKIP’s. I’m quite prepared to believe this but I think it says more about the fiendish zealotry of the sort of people attracted to environmental causes than it does about the Green Party itself. It’s not as though the Green Party has suddenly gone and recruited a brilliant, inspirational go-ahead new leader – au contraire: see Nathalie Bennett, below – nor as though it has undergone some manner of dramatic, Clause 4 style, policy reinvention.

Nope. It’s just that of all the parties, the Greens are the one whose target market accords most closely with the kind of people who flock to sign Change.Org petitions and join Twitter mobbings and go out on street demos (or better still, attend week-long protest camps where they can smoke dope, get to use the yurt and possibly get to rub shoulders with Vivienne Westwood). These people are signers, joiners, astroturfers. As a percentage of the population they are quite small but in terms of exerting political pressure they punch far above their weight by being highly committed and – for a bunch of dope-smoking crusties – surprisingly well organised. This Green Party membership surge is just another part of that strategy. I don’t believe that it will translate into anything significant at the polls.

Which is precisely what happened here.

You know how at the beginning of each new primary school year there are one or two teachers you pray aren’t going to be the ones to whose class your children have been allocated? And it’s not that these teachers are malign, necessarily. It’s just that they’re wet, agonisingly prey to all the usual PC groupthink and frankly a bit thick – so, while you know your kids won’t necessarily be unhappy during their year with Ms X, they’re not going to learn anything  more useful than how to colour in a picture of Mary Seacole for their Black History Week project. Well I’ve met the Green Party’s leader Natalie Bennett and I’m afraid she’s one of those.

Yep..same with Russel Norman and Meteria Turei. The ginger whinger and the frog princess of NZ politics.


It stands, of course, for “green on the outside, red on the inside”. But as Matthew Holehouse rightly notes in this analysis of the Green Party’s policies, that doesn’t mean they’re as bad as Karl Marx whose main concern was the way wealth was distributed. No – and this really can’t be pointed out often enough – the Greens are much more dangerous than Karl Marx, because though they share his attitude to redistributionism they are also ideologically opposed to the one thing capable of offering each generation a better standard of living than the previous one: economic growth. A vote for the Greens is far more than a protest: it’s a vote for collectivisation, stagnation and immiseration.

Sounding familiar yet?

They’re worse than a joke

Ohohoho yes, the Greens. When I originally started writing this piece, I couched it in flippantly humorous terms, with jokes about a world where your house would get confiscated and handed over to a bunch of crusties, with your garden shed being allocated for dogs-on-ropes they use for their street begging ventures and the suggestion that it would be like living under Enver Hoxha only with more dreadlocks, juggling and pois (Young Poi-oneers, anyone?).

Truth is, though, to laugh at the Greens is to underestimate the viciousness of their ideology – which is an unholy mix of economic illiteracy, pathological altruism, and misanthropy, built on a foundation of ignorance, self-delusion and mendacity. These people aren’t just misguided fools. The policies for which they have agitated over the years – punching far above their weight (see 1) – have caused the world and its inhabitants real harm. For the full ugly details read this damning new report by Andrew Montford for the Global Warming Policy Foundation called Unintended Consequences Of Climate Change Policy. These caring, nurturing hippies have blood on their hands. They should be ashamed of themselves and certainly have no place on the moral high ground.

Like that aforementioned vile fart in an elevator.

Once again we are seeing the influence of the media in an election.

The reason the “rise of the Greens” is getting so much enthusiastic coverage is because the mainstream media appears to have decided en masse that anything is better than UKIP, even a party which, if it got anywhere near the reins of power would bomb the UK economy back to the Dark Ages. An unfortunate side-effect of this shameless bias towards Cameron’s Conservatives (who, of course, fear and loathe UKIP far more than they do Labour) is that it means few journalists, commentators and broadcasters are subjecting the Greens to any kind of serious scrutiny. If UKIP had a single policy half as lunatic as the ones the Greens have got, it would be front page news for the next four months.

As usual James Delingpole is right on the money.

    Excellent piece of writing and as you point out – change the names of the politicians and it could easily be NZ he is writing about. I particularly like his warning that although they seem like a joke they should not be underestimated.

    • OneTrack

      The joke will be on New Zealand, I mean Aotearoa, if they ever got in.

  • Bartman

    “immiseration” – my favourite new word of the day: “to cause severe economic hardship to a person or a people”.

  • Cadwallader

    50 years ago tomorrow Winston Churchill died. The UK has really matured since his death…eh what?

    • corporate refugee

      One thing which IS apparently mature in the UK is journalism. Somehow I can’t see any of our motley crew here in NZ coming up with something like this article, and even if they did it probably wouldn’t get past the editor.

      • Cadwallader

        I would never question James Delingpole’s ability as a writer. The UK has for too long subscribed to a multi-culti society which is destroying its identity, culture and stability.

    Greenpeace has blood on its hands and is committing a “crime against humanity”

    Evil? Of course they are evil. Were they not conceived in the Fatherland with much the same philosophy as the “Blut und Boden” fraternity? In any event, the Greens are notorious for their delusions of towering superiority, condescending arrogance and their belief they are the ones who ought to be running the world.

  • Nige.

    the real reason for the rise of the greens (or any party affiliated with socialist international ( ) is ignorance.

    Nothing less.

    (i wonder if labour new Zealand have paid their fees this year…)

      Never underestimate the number of people out there with a burning desire to tell everyone else how to act, what to do and how to live.

    “Yep..same with Russel Norman and Meteria Turei. The ginger whinger and the frog princess of NZ politics.” Oh boy WO!! Quote of the week. Well worth quoting again

  • The Accountant

    The Greens see economic devastation as just one of the necessary steps towards destroying the human race and preserving the earth mother. They don’t care that other parties accuse them of this because it’s true that’s what they want
