BTW, writing in National Review, Stanley Kurtz had a very good observation about the left and leftists:
Liberalism nowadays may be the last great holdout of old-fashioned prejudice. By telling themselves they’re against group hatreds of all kinds, and dismissing their opponents’ arguments as nothing but bigotry in disguise, liberals grant themselves license to despise. They swear, mock, and hate with a clean conscience, never guessing they’re turning liberalism itself into an outpost of bigotry in reverse. The flip side of liberal guilt is this hidden license to hate.By telling yourself that you are against propaganda of all kinds, and dismissing your opponents' arguments as nothing but regurgitated propaganda that doesn't mesh with the propaganda that you regurgitate, you have given yourself a license to be arrogant and dismissive. You are just as blinkered as you pretend that we are, but flatter yourself with your supposed enlightenment.
Now, are you actually going to answer my points about environmentalism and politics, or are you just going to continue braying like an ignorant jackass?
