Trigger Warning: "Liberal" is now a bad word on the fringy fring of the Lefty Watermelon continuum.

The crazy is building!  Lefties are moving on from "Liberal" and making it a bad word.
This is the actual thing they wrote on their site: "Trigger Warning: Contains Transphobic Content Below "

Be it noted, Deep Green Resistance is a nut group which primarily exists to violently eradicate industrialization and agriculture from Planet Earth. But that's not why they are in hot water with the brave soulds at "Decolonizing Yoga" and Earth First. No, DGR has done something -really- bad. They have disrespected Trans People! [the horror!]

Yes friends, so shameful it is that the Deep Green Resistance has supported [gasp!] Transphobia [swoon!] that Moisturizing Beard Product Dude, Mr. Aric McBay, has been forced to leave the movement and denounce his co-authors Derrick Jensen and Lierre Keith.

"“I left the organization at the beginning of 2012 after a trans inclusive policy was cancelled by Derrick Jensen and Lierre Keith. Many good people and good activists left the organization for that reason.
I find these transphobic attitudes to be disgusting and deeply troubling, and it bothers me a lot to have any past association with people promoting transphobia.
For me, trans rights and trans inclusion are fundamental to building effective movements and to building a world worth living in. Speaking as the main author of the book that inspired the organization in the first place: they are most definitely my core values.
And transphobia–like racism and sexism and classism and homophobia–is a poison that those in power use to destroy movements and ruin lives. When faced with such poisons, who needs COINTELPRO?
Solidarity between movements is the only hope we have.”"

Yes, Beard Product Man left because his two whacky friends weren't whacky enough. Or more likely that their failure to bow to this week's Central Party Fax was going to cost him money and brownie points with the mob.

Apparently, Jensen and Keith hold the unpopular position that trans people, (or mentally ill castrations fetishists as Kathy Shaidle likes to call them)  "...are some sort of Post-Modern expression of liberal individualism and that trans womyn in particular are manifestations of patriarchy in disguise."

Yes, that's right. A guy dressed up as a chick who wants to cut off his little general is socially bad. But not because he's mentally ill, not even because he's misusing medical resources to feed his mental illness, oh no. Its because he's a manifestation of the Patriarchy in disguise. A moment of hope for sanity, dashed. [sigh].

Confusion to the Enemy!

I'm hoping CSIS and the RCMP are monitoring these latter-day anarchists...bomb tossing is in vogue with this lot... keep them under surveillance and round them up every time a firecracker goes off. There ARE some things worth fighting for, but Green fascism/genocide isn't one of them.

Personally Bill I'm hoping that the whole monitoring thing goes out of business. Because they aren't using it to watch these Greenie twerps, they're using it on you and me.
