it will be all the outrage

California Innovates New Immigrant-Hating Treehugger Fusion Wingnut

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”]

  1. Come here a minute

    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!

    1. actor212

      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…

  2. Sue4466

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

  3. Baconzgood

    I couldn't listen to the audio because I'm on a conference call but let me guess.

    BLAH BLAH BLAH I'm trying to sound like a liberal so I can fake out liberals to not like mexicans BLAH BLAH BLAH. Look at my Don Johnson Beard see I'm a liberal. BLAH BLAH I've got disheveled Heat Miser hair I'm liberal BLAH BLAH BLAH. Look my sleeves are rolled up and my shit is unbuttoned in the relaxed liberal style BLAH BLAH BLAH. Here's our web site which has links to Storm Front BLAH BLAH BLAH.

    Did I miss anything?

    Pollution — it ain't caused by us — it's caused by foreigners — living our filthy decadent lifestyle.

    1. Doktor StrangeZoom

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

  5. MissTaken

    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.

    1. SorosBot

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

    1. Serolf_Divad

      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.

  6. CivicHoliday

    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.

    1. Blueb4sunrise

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

    2. George Spelvin

      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".

  7. CommieLibunatic

    Wha… What the fuck kind of harebrained fuckwad of an idea IS this!?
    (posted while looking something like this)

  8. Goonemeritus

    Until today if you woke up in the morning and said yes I’m a xenophobic piece of shit but I do worry about global warming no one was speaking for you.

  9. An_Outhouse

    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.

  10. Poindexter718

    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.

      1. James Michael Curley

        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.

  11. coolhandnuke

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

  12. bumfug

    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.

  13. SockBunny

    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.

  14. CogitoErgoBibo

    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.

  15. Doktor StrangeZoom

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

  16. kirktastico

    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.

  17. Callyson

    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…

  18. RedneckMuslin

    I thinks they've never seen an immigrant if they think they are all Bigfoots. You know what they say about big feet. Girls?

  19. Steverino247

    Missy? Missy Creamcheese? What's the deal, baby?

    (Sorry, but I find it impossible to take seriously anything said by anyone named, "Missy DeYoung" or some other porn star name like that.)

  20. hagajim

    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?

  21. Antispandex

    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'.

    1. GeorgiaBurning

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

    2. Chet Kincaid

      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.

  22. barto

    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.

  23. Texan_Bulldog

    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.

  24. Guppy

    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!

  25. DocChaos

    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.

  26. OneYieldRegular

    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."

  27. jakegittes

    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.

  28. jakegittes

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

  29. dadanarchist

    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).

    1. jakegittes

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

  30. Neoyorquino

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

  31. Chet Kincaid

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

  32. LiberalMantra

    Am waiting for the greenhouse campaign next — "it's all those beans they eat, I tell you."

  33. BerkeleyBear

    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.

    1. Dr. Nick Riviera

      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).

  34. Wile E. Quixote

    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

    1. MilwaukeeKent

      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?!

    1. Dr. Nick Riviera

      These kind folks just want to help us commune with nature like the people in Mexico living in dumps wearing shoes made out of old (American) tires. Bless them!

  35. Dr. Nick Riviera

    What we need is all the browns to go back to eating dirt, consuming ditch water and living in straw huts so we can continue to wear gucci suits and drive our hummers here in GODS country!

  36. MilwaukeeKent

    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.

  37. comrad_darkness

    This, mine mine everything's mine. Keep away! Certainly should get them mainstreamed into the National Teabaggery movement.
