Joe Biden’s Radical Environmentalist Nominee Defined Kids as “Environmental Hazards”

Fight tech tyranny. Join Dan on Parler @dbongino.

Joe Biden’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) nominee, Tracy Stone-Manning, described American children as an “environmental hazard” in her 1992 graduate thesis.

In that thesis, Stone-Manning called American children an “environmental hazard,” suggested using advertising to suggest to Americans that they have no more than two kids, and noted, “the earth can’t afford Americans.”

Among other things in her thesis, Stone-Manning wrote, according to the Daily Caller:

“The origin of our abuses is us. If there were fewer of us, we would have less impact. We must consume less, and more importantly, we must breed fewer consuming humans. ….Americans believe that overpopulation is only a problem somewhere else in the world. But it’s a problem here too. The earth is only so big, and we can tap into it only so often. In America, we tap in often and hard. When we overpopulate, the earth notices it more. Stop at two. It could be the best thing you do for the planet. …The point is a simple one. Harshly, the ads say that the earth can’t afford Americans. More softly, they ask people to think about how their family planning choices affect the planet.”

As bad as that is, the fact that Stone-Manning allegedly engaged in eco-terrorism is even worse:

Republican opposition to Stone-Manning’s confirmation has grown considerably in recent weeks following reports by the Daily Caller News Foundation and other outlets about her involvement in a 1989 tree spiking incident…Stone-Manning received legal immunity to testify in the 1993 criminal trial over the matter that she sent an anonymous and threatening letter to the Forest Service warning that a local forest had been sabotaged with tree spikes. Her testimony led to the conviction of a man she identified as her former roommate and friend. Tree spiking, which The Washington Post and other news outlets have described as an “eco-terrorism” tactic, is a form of sabotage in which metal spikes are nailed into trees to make them unsafe to log. If gone unnoticed, tree spikes can cause serious injuries for workers.

The environmental movement is dominated by liberals and it’s the embodiment of one of the worst liberal traits. You see, almost everyone is in favor of clean water, clean air, and a clean environment. However, if that’s how almost everyone feels, how can liberals feel special? They can’t, so they have to come up with progressively more extreme ideas to back to distinguish themselves from ordinary people.

That’s a big part of what’s driving the push to destroy our way of life over global warming and it’s probably why Stone-Manning wants to stop Americans from having children and went Al-Qaeda-lite on some poor loggers trying to make a living. You may live in the country, have a beautiful garden, drink filtered water, run an air purifier in your house, and volunteer to pick trash up off the side of the road, but unless you’re willing to think and behave like a lunatic, you aren’t a REAL environmentalist in their eyes. The fact that a potentially dangerous crank like Tracy Stone-Manning could be considered to run the Bureau of Land Management proves all of that is true.
