California Innovates New Immigrant-Hating Treehugger Fusion Wingnut

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

There are some earth-hating Mexicans enjoying a tacky resort development right now!

Are you tired of seeing immigrants, mostly the illegal ones, rolling around in their garish earth-raping automobiles on their way to and from their garish stucco McMansions filled with, we don’t know, probably a few car elevators even? Did you mainline enough angel dust at breakfast this morning to come to the startling conclusion that global warming is not only real and dangerous but that your Guatemalan house painter is to blame for it? California has a support group for you, boy oh boy. And now they have a teevee ad!

Traumatized tipster “jakegittes” spotted this ad running in San Diego:

There you have it. Immigrants pollute the ozone “four times more” while residing in the United States than if they lived in whichever Mexico they came from. (Ha ha, they are leaving the U.S. already anyway.)

“Sound crazy?” asks this Los Angeles Craigslist actor human in the ad. Well, let’s have a bit more thoughtfully reasoned argument before we decide, from the group’s website:

“Because of American’s proclivity for conspicuous consumption, most environmentalists understand that population growth in the United States affects the environment here and also worldwide,” commented Missy DeYoung, Chairman of the Board of Californians for Population Stabilization. “However, many environmentalists won’t talk about the fact that immigration is the number one factor driving U.S. population growth. It’s intellectually dishonest to think we can address population growth without addressing mass immigration.”

Wouldn’t the more logical solution be just to deport all the Americans with a proclivity for conspicuous consumption, to Siberia? Anyway, your editor is new to California and was not familiar with these strange hybrid right-wing hippies until now, but we notice that there is a UCLA physics professor on the group’s board, among other scientists. Have you heard of them, readers? [YouTube; thanks to Wonkette operative "jakegittes"]

Why should he? The hair's a sentient beast. Let him do the paperwork!

Hey, there are two sides to every issue. Where is the interview with Mexican-loving Hummer drivers, who want to open the borders and greet every new resident with good old-fashioned incandescent bulbs? JOURNALISMS!

actor212 April 18, 2012 at 3:09 pm

Y'know, come to think of it, many Caribbean nations make a fairly decent profit buying reasonably priced Cuban cigars then flipping half the stock over to American tourists.

I envision an entire cottage industry in Cuidad de Juarez in black market incandescents…

Any chance the makers could be waterboarded in a redwood hot tub?

Sue4466 April 18, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Just tossing this idea out, but maybe the problem is the conspicuous consumption, not the immigrating?

As we all know, the darkies had far more cohesive, peaceful communities when they were segregated.

MissTaken April 18, 2012 at 2:48 pm

Continuation of logic trail: I don't like war. Sometimes immigrants from the variety of Messico's down south join the military when they live in the US. Therefore immigrants are evil war mongers and should be deported.

SorosBot April 18, 2012 at 3:06 pm

Well Pat Buchanan also is against war and hates immigrants and other non-white people, so there is precedent.

White skin reflects sunlight back into outer space, thus ameliorating global warming. Mexicans, with their dark skin, absorb the sun's rays… which is also why they're so hot blooded.

Oh for flying fucks sake, these people are missing a few screws. (Snark off btw – I teach college level Environmental Science so this particular brand of B.S. really rubs me the wrong way since I could see how misguided nature enthusiasts could fall for it.) So here is the deal, asshats: yes, population size is a COMPONENT of environmental impact. And yes OF COURSE we here in the U.S. have one of the largest ecological footprints on the planet despite having less than 5% of the world's population. But as you yourselves state, level of consumption is the number one predictor of which humans eat up resources and spew out waste more than other humans. And I can assure you that the vast majority of illegal immigrants who live humbly and are doing their best trying to avoid deportation because they would very much like to live in the same goddamn country as their innocent children thank you very much are NOT the ones who buy a new iPhone every year, throw out the leftovers, own two SUVs, and apply daily doses of pesticide to their lovely big green lawn in a gated community in suburban Orange County, CA. P.S. HEY STUPID HEADS, YOU GUYS MAKING THE VIDEO, I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU, MAYBE YOU SHOULD DEPORT YOUR OWN DAMN SELVES IF YOU ARE REALLY SO CONCERNED ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT.

Blueb4sunrise April 18, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Yep. Know that this thinking has a long, but thin, history trying to wedge into tree-hugging. Especially in the SW.

George Spelvin April 18, 2012 at 3:11 pm

I was going to post a comment about these logic-impaired folks, but you pretty much own the thread with this.

Also, Kirsten, nice one with "fusion wingnut".

These racists (or their cousins) tried to take over the Sierra Club a few years ago. Fucking Nazi – I'd like to punch that arrogant hipster in the face.

Poindexter718 April 18, 2012 at 2:53 pm

We've all seen it. The indiginous Mexicans living close to the earth, dutifully riding their burros to the local Bimbo mercado to hand in their empty Jaritos bottles and recycling their poop into a tasty mole. Then they come here and everything changes. They spend all day burning fossil fuels with inefficient pollutinous single-stroke engines (aka leaf blowers & weed whackers) and all night running their air conditioners b/c "!aieey caliente!" & whatnot.

An_Outhouse April 18, 2012 at 2:53 pm

How are we going to get all that grease out?

I remember that having made a few trips between PGH and Cleveland. Early age experience with the "American Driver as Idiot" when traffic jams across one of the bridges were caused by people wanting to slow down for a closer look and then passing out.

He has a point if you think about it, BP WAS an English company….Just sayin'.

I haven't used the word conservative in many, many years. It is a misleading, contradictory term. I prefer to call them consumeratives.

The stupid. It hurts.

bumfug April 18, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Everybody knows that burrito farts are twelve times more destructive to the fragile American biosystem than they are to the more primitive ecology of the Mayans.

SockBunny April 18, 2012 at 3:01 pm

Why am I certain these are the same people who want every [white] man and every [white] woman to marry and multiply – no cheating by using birth control?

And here I always thought they would try to prove teh gays caused climate change. Silly me.

Sassomatic April 18, 2012 at 3:03 pm

Californians DO love to have anyone else to blame but themselves, so this makes sense.

CogitoErgoBibo April 18, 2012 at 3:03 pm

Well, if it all just comes down to an argument about over-population, I'm for getting rid of all the newborns who recently "immigrated" from the uterus to the real world, where they poop and cry and annoy me on cross-country flights. Oh, and Republicans. For the same reasons.

Doktor StrangeZoom April 18, 2012 at 3:05 pm

You know, if we just distributed bicycles at the border, it would all work out.

Hippies? Yeah, it's all the patchouli.

kirktastico April 18, 2012 at 3:06 pm

The wing nuts in San Diego just can't give Orange County the crown as biggest wing nuts. I have to pay for the nice weather by having assholes like this as neighbors. Some days it doesn't seem like an even trade.

Callyson April 18, 2012 at 3:10 pm

Or, you know, we Americans could adjust our carbon footprint so that it is closer to those of the nations that immigrants come from…

…I know, why bother being logical with wingnuts, but sometimes I can't resist…

CZL April 18, 2012 at 3:14 pm

SPLC confirms it! They're a nativist group, just like any number of white power organizations.

If we're gonna go all racist and stoopid, I'll just say the global warmin' is caused by them beaners' flatulence. There, how's that?

But…but…where am I going to get a decent tamale or cheap child care if they all go home? Not to mention that those U. S. tortillas taste like cardboard and paste. Leave them alone, and let them make us better…at least till white girls can make a decent mole'.

Biff April 18, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Note to self: look around town for the Chevy Lumina with the awesome tamales in the trunk.

GeorgiaBurning April 18, 2012 at 4:53 pm

"till white girls can make a decent mole"- or at least know how to get the Dona Maria jar open

Chet Kincaid April 18, 2012 at 5:36 pm

Only decent, hard-working, stay-at-home white Moms have the time it takes to pull off a 17-stage, all-day mole recipe. Also, unless you have a vent hood or you cook outdoors, the burning pepper fog will earn you a visit from Corey Booker.

barto April 18, 2012 at 3:43 pm

That's the ticket. Hook up the leather pants, NIMBY, librul environmentalists with the racist xenophobes. Match made in heaven, or New Haven, more like.

Texan_Bulldog April 18, 2012 at 3:50 pm

I saw this ad on MSNBC here in Austin. (Like we give a shit in TX what happens in CA.) But apparently the Republicans aren't satisfied with their 5% approval rate among Latinos. They are going to be happy with Marco & a few cranky Cuban exiles in FL.

Of course immigrants have a larger carbon footprint! They have no reason to drive gas-guzzling lawnmowers around neighborhood golf courses in their countries of origin!

Callyson April 18, 2012 at 4:31 pm

And in a related story…

PBS just uncovered new video of over a dozen Border Patrol agents tasering Anastasio Hernández-Rojas while he laid in the dirt defenseless.
http://act.presente.org/sign/anastasio/?akid=578….

Assholes.

DocChaos April 18, 2012 at 4:58 pm

The Messicans here in Los Angeles all drive old gas-guzzling pickup trucks as they drive around all day cutting lawns and cleaning pools, leaving a much bigger carbon footprint than I do driving my Prius to yoga classes and lunch meetings.

OneYieldRegular April 18, 2012 at 5:00 pm

I've lived in California for several decades – so if I may use my wealth of experience to translate: "We didn't believe in climate change until we realized we could use it to justify our xenophobia."

fuflans April 18, 2012 at 9:46 pm

this is a thing of beauty my friend.

jakegittes April 18, 2012 at 5:09 pm

What really bugs the shit out of me the most is the fact that our local television station, Channel 10, KGTV, ran the fucking ad. Apparently, anything goes with KGTV. Of course, if you watch this channel enough you begun to realize that station ownership and management probably believe shit like this.

jakegittes April 18, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Oh. And by the way. Do you actually believe for one second that capsweb.org really gives a flying fuck about global warming?

dadanarchist April 18, 2012 at 5:18 pm

This actually isn't that novel. The so-called "redneck" wing of Earth First! opposed immigration for just this reason, and board members of the Sierra Club have also attacked immigration on ecological grounds. In both cases, non-racist voices prevailed, but this sentiment exists out there (and as ex-Northern Californian, I heard it plenty, especially in the Southern part of the state).

jakegittes April 18, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Yeah. But the point is that they are running fucking teevee ads. That's what's novel about it.

Neoyorquino April 18, 2012 at 5:24 pm

It's all those low-riders, with their exhausts low to the ground, where people walk! Carbon! Footprints! Wake up, sheeple!

Chet Kincaid April 18, 2012 at 5:28 pm

The geniuses behind this novel line of reasoning must have studied at the same Universities as the "Hey Black People, Abortion is Genocide!" brainiacs.

BerkeleyBear April 18, 2012 at 6:50 pm

Population "stabilization" is and always has been code for "no more foreigners". They've always latched on to the paranoia of the day, whether it was using Nativist fears against the Irish and Eastern Europeans, the Know Nothings and other whites freaking out over the potential of freed black people, the red scares post WWI and WWII, anti-Asian sentiment throughout the 19th and 20th century, and so on.

Oh and crackpot physics professors aren't a sign of legitimacy on anything. It always seems to be either a physics or biology quack who is on the wrong side of every discussion of evolution (creation science), climate change or social justice.

Dr. Nick Riviera April 19, 2012 at 12:29 am

Yup. You just have to remind people one of the two men who developed the structure of DNA goes around giving lectures on how the "africans' are inherently inferior to whites and women are crappy scientists (SORRY ROSALIND FRANKLIN!! ACCORDING TO WATSON YOU WERE AN UGGO), Scientists and specialists are often complete dumbasses outside of their specific area of expertise (and sometimes even in it).

Wile E. Quixote April 18, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Well I for one agree with this ad and have made a list of earth-destroying immigrants who should be immediartely deported for the sake of the American environment (which is after all the bestest and most exceptional environment in the world).

John Derbyshire
Mark Steyn
David "born in Canada, but technically an American " Brooks
Dinesh D'Souza
David Frum
Michelle "anchor baby" Malkin
Bobby "anchor baby" Jindal
Charles "technically an American but raised in French Canada" Krauthammer.
Andrew Sullivan
Kathryn Jean Lopez (her last name is "Lopez" for Christ's sake, of course she's an immigrant)
Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito Nd Rick Santorum (have they ever shown you their long form birth certificates)
John "born in Panama" McCain
Rupert Murdoch
Orly Taitz

You guys, conservatives just love the environment so much.

MilwaukeeKent April 19, 2012 at 1:53 am

And suddently very concerned about young male black-on-black violence. They immediately bring it up whenever the Trayvon Martin case is mentioned and ask why the President didn't express any concern about the tragic death of Evon Martins in Pensacola on December 12th, 2011, Huh? Huh? Where was his concern then?!

Negropolis April 18, 2012 at 11:18 pm

Yes, yes; climate change for the discerning and sophisticated racist and xenophobe.

Woah! Amazingly they're all upper class white people?! What are the odds!!

MilwaukeeKent April 19, 2012 at 1:37 am

Well that's just too fucking cute — a good dose of Nativist hating disguised as eco-concerning. The KKK just needed better PR I guess, and the Know Nothings knew nothing about messaging.These guys have the ticket. Next, immigrants slow down check-out lines because they don't understand our money. Really, they don't hate them.

comrad_darkness April 19, 2012 at 2:09 pm
