One thing is certain: if there’s ever a political gathering, the Communist Party USA will crash it. They tried to burn a flag at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, and then packed up stakes and headed to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia to protest there. If there’s an anti-Trump march, they’ll be there. If there’s a climate change rally, they’ll be there.
But that last one — climate change — really looks like the big fish. Just take a look at all of the progressive pipe dreams jammed into that Green New Deal resolution that have nothing to do with the climate and everything to do with socialism — but it’s all in the name of “climate justice.”
So Alyssa Milano’s tweet about climate change is pretty transparent.

Dang, just a quick look at the background of that poster is like a progressive newspaper hidden-word puzzle: collective liberation, systems of oppression, revolution, indigenous rights, capitalism, colonialism, patriarchy, etc.
See, Zero Hour is going after the roots of climate change:
“We need address climate change not as a stand alone issue floating separately from everything else, but as the grand culmination of all our societal injustices that have been building up for centuries…” – @Jamie_Margolin at her @TEDx talk launching our #GetToTheRoots campaign! pic.twitter.com/u1jCHuxcdD

“The grand culmination of all our societal injustices that have been building up for centuries…”
I’m beginning to think that climate change isn’t really about “climate change.” It’s a unifying target which makes an ideal rallying cry. All other progressive wars can be fought in its name. https://t.co/DDJcyNTYKR

There is no climate crisis. We survived the so-called climate crisis of 2000 which is when Al Gore said the world would end. We'll survive the one 12 years from now too. God controls the climate and he has already told us that the climate sustains life until the end.

Al Gore purchased three ocean front properties after he said that ocean levels would rise.

None of those "ism"s are roots to climate change. The cyclical nature of the planet is the root to climate change. pic.twitter.com/BWecdgEIiW

I'll give you the easy one – explain how racism creates climate change.
— SP 1975 (@flashg08) March 16, 2019
Well, USA Today just explained how air pollution is racist because white people’s pollution is affecting blacks and Hispanics disproportionally.
So getting rid of capitalism, colonialism, racism and the patriarchy is going to solve climate change. So much for science! Someone’s been microdosing! 🤦🏻♀️

Me: "Hi, I'm interested in protecting the environment."
You: "Great! But before we can reduce emissions and waste, you'll have to carry all our bullsh*t woke baggage."

All these amount to attitudes/thoughts, and if thoughts can control the weather, then we're on to something big, here.
Seriously, are you a parody account?

Lmao this is the dumbest shit I’ve seen in ten years. blaming racism and the patriarchy for the hoax that is man made climate change. This is why we all laugh at you “out of touch with reality Hollywood elitists”

Do you consider capitalism and racism essentially equally bad, as this graphic suggests? https://t.co/aduqiwvnB0

Oh, evil capitalism. The same system that allowed you to become a millionaire. Let's get rid of it by giving away your millions first.

If you oppose capitalism, Alyssa Milano, give away 90% of your wealth to the indigent.

Crisis implies eminent danger and that isn’t the case. Capitalism simply refers to private ownership of property. Patriarchy emphasize the importance of fathers in the home. If you want to criticize racism and colonialism that’s fine. Just don’t confuse good and bad.

When #hollywood isn't raping children they're crying about climate change while driving their gas-guzzling cars, flying their gas-guzzling planes. Using their millions they gained through capitalism to make a bigger carbon footprint than us normal folk. Save it and shove it.

FYI Alyssa, newer technologies are being invested in. Also, older technologies are being made cleaner. And guess what, people won’t lose their jobs.

Better get to work pulling up those roots of the patriarchy, capitalism, colonialism, and racism if we want to give the planet another 12 years.
