Maybe ten years ago, the Sierra Club was about to declare illegal aliens “a form of pollution” (!) (or words to that effect).
A payment of ONE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS from jewish humanitarian DAVID GELBAUM (Newport Beach CA) stifled the club’s resolve.
“However, as of 2004, at least, this has brought about conflict within the Sierra Club, a war driven by these immigration issues, and one which may determine the future of the Club (and of the United States), as activists from its right wing and left wing have sought to take control.
Activists from the right had been seeking to change the Club’s position on the immigration issue. However, those members opposing the current Sierra Club leadership have been subjected to the usual leftist name-calling, having been labeled (ironically enough) “extremists,”(1) as well as being those who advocated the “greening of hate,“(1) and were accused by Sierra Club leaders of being “hate mongers”(1) and “racists”(1) for supporting national sovereignty or the protection of our borders (or, apparently, the protection of our environment).
On the other hand, from the left, a person like Paul Watson, a co-founder of Greenpeace,(1) was endorsing increased violence. And, this same Watson was also the founder of the “Sea Shepherd Conservation Society,“(1) a group of ecologically-minded terrorists armed with AK-47s who have sailed the seas searching for fishing boats so that they could ram and sink them, and who has openly admitted to having sunk at least 10 ships(1) (which is quite a comment on the left’s claim to be for peace). And, also, it is this same Watson has said that “there’s nothing wrong with being a terrorist, as long as you win,“(1) and the very same Watson who has declared that he intends to take over the Sierra Club.
And, one may find it interesting that the Sierra Club leadership has not reacted with anything like the alarm at the possible takeover by such a person as Paul Watson as they have towards those who seek to keep illegal aliens out of our nation, and to maintain a Zero Population Growth agenda. This fact could well reveal much about what the Sierra Club truly is, and what it could do in the future.
And, in fact, since 1996, the leadership of the Sierra Club has refused to admit that massive U.S. population growth, brought about by immense immigration levels, is causing huge environmental problems. And they have also refused to admit that there is a need to reduce U.S. immigration levels if we are to stop this population growth, and protect our natural resources (which latter, at least, is the stated reason for this organization‘s existence). And, their refusal to admit these things has been a mystery for nearly a decade.
However, on Oct. 27, 2004, the “Los Angeles Times” finally gave us the answer: David Gelbaum, a extremely wealthy donor, had demanded that the Sierra Club take this position as to immigration as a payment for Gelbaum’s very large donations, and the “LA Times” article that broke the story, written by Kenneth Weiss, quotes David Gelbaum as saying to Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope: “I did tell Carl Pope in 1994 or 1995 that if they ever came out anti-immigration, they would never get a dollar from me.”(2)”
