Nixon criminal G. Gordon Liddy gets a job on Hate Radio: "G. Gordon Liddy is vibrating with rage. 'Environmentalism is a form of pagan fundamentalism. These green wackos are fanatics like al-Quaida. Just like them,' he quivers. 'Osama believes there are 72 virgins waiting for him. The environmentalist believes human beings cause global warming. They both want to wreak havoc because of their mad beliefs. What's the difference?' ... 'Why should we listen to these fulminating feminists, proselytizing poofters, the environmentally ill, these multilateralist UN one-world government worshippers and other politically correct castrati?' he is demanding. 'Why?'"

The standard explanation for opposition to environmentalism is that it is funded by corporations because it potentially interferes with short or medium term profit taking - this in spite of the fact that the goals of environmentalism are a transition to a sustainable economy, lifestyle and indeed planet. It is hard not to see the insanity and hate on display in hate radio and other corporate outlets as other than truly irrational and disturbing. How can such a person hold down a position in any media? Are things really this bad? Do all these people have a disaster wish?
