O’Green Day, ‘The Lorax’, and Indocitrination

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On radio today, Glenn discussed some unbelievable example of indoctrination going on in schools. First, an elementary school has removed the name St. Patrick’s Day from all of the flyers, posters, etc. and replaced the holiday with O’Green Day – a perfect double whammy of anti-religious and pro-green movement indoctrination. And then there is the #1 movie in the country, “The Lorax”, which is just a big bundle of anti-logging, pro-EPA propaganda. It is capitalists are evil, industrialists are evil, making money is wrong. After all those capitalists want to do is destroy the planet, the trees, the people. Of course they do! How are Stu, Pat, and Glenn doing their part to fight back against the indoctrination? Well, aside from pointing it out to all the parents out there – they also ripped up their Lorax Project certificates which had conveniently been printed out for them.

    Have all your kids greet everyone at the school with a “Happy St. Patricks day”.  Say it as many times you can during the day and give a prize to the one who says it the most.

      You have that right.

      Here in Phoenix one of the three public transportation unions is on their sixth day of a walkout strike; Obama sent in a Federal Arbitrator to represent the unions, if the radio accounts are correct.

      The unions demands?

      Six weeks paid vacation.
      20.00 hr/pay
      Full health benefits paid by the city
      60 days medical leave (w/pay) yearly if needed
      All holidays off
      No work weeks past 40 hours.

      The interesting part of this matter, which has been going on for over two years, is the matter is in the word of the unions “not over pay or work hours, it is over the fines to the union and transit company of 1 Million dollars for poor service performance as the old contract stipulated the city could impose.”

      Once more we see the indoctrination the unions and the Feds use – they blame the people who use mass transit for the strike, demand they force the city government to make the deal and turn to the Fed’s to force their demands by collusion and threats.

    My friend dragged me off to see this by promising a good dinner afterwards. Wish I had not seen that piece of propaganda garbage. It took me over an hour last night to explain the reality of the eco-extremist movement, complete with the videos of their own words, plus a few other things.

    One message that had true shock effect on her centered around another propaganda picture on her t-shirt; a cat dressed in a Chinese uniform entitles “Chairman Meow” as in Mao. When shown the truth of communism, the deaths caused by Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot and especially Mao she broke down in tears…for I showed not just facts, but the testimony of one older lady who LIVED the horrors from the time of WW2 and of Mao.

    She always regarded Mao as a ‘true hero of the people.’ Now she has to decide, truth or the propagands she had been spun in her life.

    I pray we can save as many people as possible.

    God be with us all in this effort.

    How about O’Below me day!…

    I am shock they didn’t call to occupy day. Then the left wave their hand in our face thinking they are Jedi saying “this is not propaganda you are looking at move along” wake up people!

    Same with the recent Cars movie. Nothing but child-aimed propaganda that makes bad guys out of “big oil”, “corporate greed”, “industrialism”, profit, etc.  Funny, “Mater” was a good guy in the movie, but can you imagine the emissions from that old gas guzzler?  See, the hypocrisy of the left even comes out in their cartoons. They can’t help it!  If you are part of their elite circle, their rules don’t apply to themselves (ie: Al Gore and his 10,000 square foot home, and private jet usage…so he can fly to my city to tell me to ride my bike to work).  You can’t take these fools seriously, because they don’t even take themselves seriously. Remember the Copenhagen environmental summit, that had a line 3 miles long of limos ready to shuffle the hypocrites back and forth from their posh hotels and the summit? Complete joke.

    You just have to ignore them. But…we have to keep our kids safe too. I won’t go to, or rent, movies that are created by radical hollywood elitists designed to propagandize.

    Actually “Green Day” is a euphamism for a day spent smoking pot (ref online Urban Dictionary) so by extension, “O’ Green Day” is sending a subliminal message (intended or not ??) that is more than jsut eco indoctrination.

    I’m pretty sure St. Patricks day is a very holy day yet everyone likes to party and guzzle booze while desecrating Christianity by doing so.  Where did we all go so wrong?  Why do we pervert everything sacred?? 

    • SoThere

      Here’s where you go wrong when it comes to religion, you’re a bigot and racist.

      In your own words:

      “Most of our problems is from our support for israel, most of our wars are because of israel, our filthy hollywood is made up of mostly jewish directors, jewish funded films, and mostly jewish actors.”” I do NOT stand with Israel, and everyone that reads history rather than Faux news will know the truth. I’m not anti-Jewish, I’m anti Zionist.”” Now go do some research about how the Jew’s are 1.7% of the US population yet they make up over 40% of the politicians in power in the US, they also make up over 70% of the actors and directors in Hollywood and are responsible for all the filth and trash thats being pumped out to our youth. Tim Geitner, Feinstein, Bernake, Sachs, Chertoff, JP Morgan/Chase, Leiberman, Schumer…ect…the list goes on. FACT: 14 of the 23 senior officials that run the US Treasury are Jews….””It’s only antisemitism if you believe the lie that the imposters currently occupying Palestine are Semites….which they most certainly are NOT!! Revelation 3:9 and Revelation 2:9!!””Saw the 1.5% Jewish comment….yes, they are a very small population in the US…yet they dominate such high positions in the US…amazing right? pffffttt your blind. Goodbye.”Right out of Paul Joseph Goebbels playbook.

      It is a holy day Vinny.  It is a feast day in The Catholic Church to celebrate the introduction of Christianity to Ireland by St. Patrick.  Other churches observe it as well.  The secularists have been trying to co-opt the day into a “binge drinking day”, with “Irish culture” as a pretense.

      How many have forgotten that we are in Lent?

      when I have a green beer, I am not disrespecting the faith, I only have one drink, and I know that is not common. but the people celebrating have no intention of giving the Saint a black eye

      • Anonymous

        The black-eye isn’t the problem.  Persecution is nothing new.  The real problem is that many have no idea who St. Patrick is or why there is a feast day.

        “Mardi Gras” or “Fat Tuesday” is part of the same.  How many know Ash Wednesday is the following day or even what Ash Wednesday means?

        Everyone have your beers. Might as well have fun right. That is until you do your bible study and find out drinking any alcohol is almost always a severe sin.. This message is coming from a former long time Budweiser drinking fool.  Got to admit that nothing taste as good as a name brand beer..

    I blame the parents and their lack of involment in their children’s schools.    When they all wake up and question school motives, it will be too late.

    does anyone wonder if Dr. Seuss is rolling over in his grave?

    • Anonymous

      No. Probably not.  He would be quite happy with all the Obamas in Obama-ville, but not happy at all with the GOP that stole Christmas.

    St. Patrick’s day is about drinking and Irish heritage b/c that’s what the Irish made it about and has been that way for a very very long time.  Drinking is a part of celebration and is no dishonor to the church or God or anybody.  As for the Lorax, the seuss story was very environmentally oriented, as the Lorax was the spokesperson for trees and was trying to protect them from the Once-ler.

    The Lorax is nothing new.  It’s been amp-ed up for “tomorrow’s progressives” — a Lorax for the “now generation”.

    I haven’t seen or been considering seeing this film. The fact that its a pile of propaganda is not really so stunning a revelation. Look at its intended audience and the situation of our youth today but its similar to the 60’s propaganda I was fed.

    Someone needs to point out the reality of the world to our children and future leaders. The paper mills all over the northeast have almost all fallen to the EPA and Eco-Freaks using just this type of propaganda. As they fell, the forestry and logging industries ground to a halt.

    No-one has pointed out that the trees in question have been a “crop” for over 100 years. That the “farmers” preserved huge tracts of land with the income and allowed public access and use of all this allegedly “pristine” land. Paper Mills were dirty … yes but that has been changed to meet cleaner requirements but … not enough to meet the EPA’s ever changing rules. Log rafts choked the rivers and waterways but created a vibrant ecology as they scoured riverbeds and created tremendous food sources for other animals.

    Maine, Vermont and parts of New Hampshire are on the verge of dying as they struggle to keep up with EPA rules, Public (Dis) Information, Political Correctness, and the outraged cries of the Eco-Freaks none of whom ever looked beyond the surface indignation and looked at the deeper aspects of “Unintended Consequences”.

    When I was very young I was an Eco-Freak, I protested against DDT and was thrilled by its being banned from use. We saved Rachel Carson’s birds. The World Health Organization has figures in the mid 300 Millions of human deaths worldwide due to the loss of use of DDT, The vast majority of these people were under 5 years old. Lost to insects easily controlled by DDT.

    I guess that makes me a hero somehow … unless you count the World Population situation. Something like 200 Million plus little kids lost to “bug bites”.

    Unintended consequences …

    People need to be taught to study the whole situation and not just go with the knee-jerk reflective reactions.

    My wife and I took our 4 year old thinking it would be a good dr. seuss movie, but we caught on quickly that it was negatively aimed at capitalism. This has made us review the next movies more indepth so we don’t bend the mind of our son into the way the world pushes.

    My thought on this movie is…
    1 – The guy in the house could have planted the seed outside his house and then spread those seeds like the well known Johnny Appleseed. This would have been a better lesson than what I see in point #2.
    2 – The little boy that wanted a real tree…not a bad desire but with him driving his motorized unicycle around a city, through houses like an idiot only shows the kids that if you want something and you have to endanger other to get it, it is okay. 

    Sorry but I better stop before I type out all my thoughts because I could go on forever how that movie taught way to many wrong leasons when with a little critique they could have been good lessons.

    we went to see the lorax, it was cute but yes total propaganda. My daughter who is four, asked why the greedy guy cut down all the trees, I explained to her that he was not a responsible business man. That to be responsible, he should have replanted as he cut so that he wouldn’t go out of business. And only cutting so many trees a year thus driving the pirces up on his product so he could have made even more money. But he let others who were even more greedy push him around so it made him really stupid. I changed the focus on stand your ground for what you know is right and not be pushed around by those around you. Now she argues with me about everything unless I can show her why I say no……sigh…..I am proud of her though..

    I’m disappointed in that school. Saint Patrick is a superhero! He chased snakes from a church and made a great tradition. Unfortunately, people translate the holiday as “environmentally friendly day”… This sort of makes me loath my favorite color since I like it more than a petty scheme for environmentalists. Green can mean “envy”, “greed”, “happyness”, Victorian era… It’s a wonderful color that’s misused. Just as much as red by Satanists and black by emos.
