"Save the Whales"? No, it's really "Fund the Democrats"

Imagine that!


"Today’s so-called environmental movement can be described in much the same way. Campaigns to 'save the cuddly animals' or 'protect the ancient forests' are really disguised efforts to raise money for Democratic political campaigns.

Take this ad for example, displayed on the League of Conservation Voters, or LCV, website. This is LCV’s standard text used to raise money for the nonprofit organization. In turn, LCV takes these donations, given to “save the environment” and uses them to fund ads for Democratic Candidates such as Ben Lujan from New Mexico.

LCV, similar to other groups I’ll highlight later, disguises itself as an environmental group dedicated to saving the environment, yet, as shown by this political ad, it is simply an extension of the Democratic political party.

In the fall of 2004, I came to the Senate floor to discuss this very topic. This report and my remarks today are an update on the 2004 report.

Over the last several months my staff has put considerable effort into examining this deception perpetrated by these wolves disguised in sheep’s clothing. This examination has uncovered the tangled web of charitable and environmental organizations, political campaigns, and large foundations."

Tsk, tsk......

Don't the Dems/Lefties/"Progressives" know it's not nice to fool Mother Nature by false fundraising in her name?
