A Filipino climate activist wrote an article for VICE saying that she left the environmental movement because it was too “white.”
Those awful white people and their…trying to save the planet!
“The climate movement is overwhelmingly white. So I walked away,” explains Karin Louise Hermes, accusing her fellow tree huggers of exploiting her for ‘woke’ token diversity points.
“After a while I realized I would only be called upon when climate organizations needed an inspiring story or a “diverse” voice, contacts for a campaign, or to participate in a workshop for “fun” when everyone else on the (all-white) project was getting paid,” she complains.

Hermes’ main bone of contention appears to be that her white comrades didn’t adequately embrace the notion of intersectionality, which basically means using climate change alarmism as a vehicle to push all your other demented far-left political demands.
“Anti-racism and anti-capitalism need to be made part of organizing,” claims Hermes. “If “Green” policies fail to consider anti-racism and migrant rights, how is any person of colour supposed to feel voting for them or organizing in the same spaces?”
Hermes apparently made activist leaders uncomfortable by drawing attention to their lack of diversity.
“Whenever I would question the whiteness of these spaces and how strategies didn’t take race into account, I would be met with uncomfortable silences,” she writes, asserting that the mostly white activist leaders were not paying enough attention to what “whiteness, capitalism, and inequality have to do with climate change.”
In what was actually a fairly good point, Hermes also highlights how eco-warriors push veganism as a solution yet refuse to acknowledge “how people have been killed after protesting against the sourcing of plant-based foods like palm oil on Indigenous lands.”
In summary, Hermes accurately nails how climate activists use non-white people as human shields for their arguments, but her own inherent racism towards white people also shines through given the fact that most of this took place in Berlin, which is still 71 per cent ethnic German.
Respondents on Twitter also had some fun on the thread.
As a cis gendered hetero white man, I'm doing my part by not joining the climate movement.

Clinton & Pelosi Suggest Trump Was Following Putin’s Orders To Allow Capitol Siege
The demented conspiracy hour with Hillary & Nancy
In a conversation that sounds like two demented Q Anon members, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi suggested that President Trump instigated the Capitol siege at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
Two time failed Presidential candidate Hillary wheeled out Pelosi on her “podcast”, and the two soon began to spout their familiar conspiracy theories.
“We learned a lot about our system of government over the last four years with a president who disdains democracy and, as you have said numerous times, has other agendas,” Clinton blathered.
“What they all are, I don’t think we yet know. I hope historically we will find out who he’s beholden to, who pulls his strings,” she continued, adding “I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol.”
She then said that Trump’s “enablers,” “accomplices,” and “cult members” were behind the rioting.
Clinton asked Pelosi “Do you think we need a 9/11-type commission to investigate and report everything that they can pull together and explain what happened?”
Pelosi responded “I do,” and claimed she told Trump that “With you, Mr. President, all roads lead to Putin.”
“And these people, unbeknownst to them, maybe, are Putin puppets. They were doing Putin’s business when they did that at the incitement of an insurrection by the president of the United States,” Pelosi proclaimed, adding “So yes, we should have a 9/11 commission, and there is strong support in the Congress to do that.”
So another three year waste of time and money chasing some Putin conspiracy?
The unhinged rantings were immediately dubbed ‘BlueAnon’:
UK Police Boast About Fining Person Eating A Kebab, Alone, In A Car
The Covid crackdown is now in full force
As the crackdown on lockdown ‘violators’ is being amped up by the authorities in the UK, police were criticised for boasting about fining a person who they witnessed eating a kebab in their car, alone.
Avon and Somerset Police tweeted about the incident which occurred over the weekend at Cheddar Gorge, a place of natural beauty in the South West of the country.
The issue, police say, is that the person drove 20 miles from Bristol to eat the kebab.
Police bragged about patrolling the area to punish people they deemed to be breaking lockdown:
In a further statement to media, police said that while “patrolling in Cheddar [they] engaged with a number of people who were sitting in parked cars in Cheddar Gorge.”
“Officers took the decision to issue fixed penalty notices to seven individuals whom they determined were not local to the area, were not members of the same household, and did not have a valid reason for their journey under the current COVID-19 regulations,” the statement continued.
“We would ask that people follow the regulations, only travel when it is essential and take exercise locally to their home address, in order to save lives and protect the NHS,” the statement concluded, parroting government rhetoric.
The Police are asking the public to report lockdown violators:
Backlash toward the police on Twitter was swift:
While some expressed disgust with police, others were eager to snitch:
This incident followed a number of other cases of police cracking down on people that made headlines over the weekend.
Two women were interrogated and fined by police for going on a walk in a remote area 5 miles from where they lived despite this not being illegal under coronavirus laws. Police told the women that hot drinks they were carrying constituted a “picnic”.
The women, Jessica Allen and Eliza Moore, told reporters that the police appeared ‘desperate to fine them’:
The women explained that they reasoned the remote place they chose to walk “would keep us safer, and it would be safer for everyone else as well.”
The pair said that “The officers approached us as we parked, we parked two spaces away from each other to ensure we really were complying with social distancing, and the officers soon started walking towards our vehicles.”
“They were looking to find information that they could justify that we had broken the rules,” they explained.
Elsewhere, video emerged of policing arresting people who were walking, sitting on benches and drinking coffee outside.
After the footage went viral, police claimed that the whole thing was staged by ‘anti-lockdown protesters’:
Video also emerged of police officers themselves sitting down in a cafe drinking coffee, with the person filming them questioning why they were not following the rules:
In a separate incident, a couple with a baby and a pushchair were grilled by COVID police in Birmingham city centre merely for walking on the street. The report noted that the Police Community Support Officers then began quizzing people who had arrived at a pharmacy to pick up prescription drugs.
Meanwhile, in Scotland, a family was arrested after police entered their home acting on a tip off from a neighbor that there were “too many people inside.”
One local police force even angrily tweeted about “2 reports of snowballs being thrown” in violation of coronavirus lockdown rules.
Another police force threatened people with fines for planning to go sledging in a remote area of North Yorkshire.
Last week, we reported on the announcement by police of the adoption of a new ‘hardline’ lockdown policy to stop and question people if they are out in the street, and to issue on the spot fines if they cannot provide a reasonable excuse for being out of their houses.
Police also said they would specifically target ‘anti-lockdown, anti-vaccine protesters’, saying that “we now have a hardcore element who are against the rules.”
Police are also demanding new powers to force entry into the homes of suspected lockdown violators.
As we reported earlier, the government has reportedly discussed upping COVID restrictions even further by only allowing people to leave their homes once per week, and banning talking to friends in the street or supermarket.
Supermarkets themselves are reportedly set to be patrolled by police and inspected amid claims that they are not enforcing social distancing rules effectively enough. Some may face fines for ‘bending the rules’, according to reports.
The government has been criticised for implementing a third lockdown, wherein everyone is restricted to gathering in parks and going to the supermarket only.
Critics say it forces people into the same spaces, rather than allowing people to spread out naturally.
It is clear that the public is growing sick and tired of lockdown restrictions, and that police are implementing a more heavy handed approach in order to enforce government Covid decrees.
Reports emerged at the weekend that restrictions were due to stay in place until at least March 23, yet the government has not given any official timeline for how long the lockdown will last, or any indications of when restrictions will be tightened or relieved.
Meanwhile, in Wuhan…
This Is CNN: ‘Trump Supporters Believe BULLSH*T’
“Stop saying that we must respect Trump supporters who believe bullshit”
CNN host Don Lemon declared Monday that leftists should stop pandering to people who claim that supporters of President Trump should be afforded respect, because they all “believe bullshit.”
Lemon was discussing the intentions of some GOP lawmakers to object to the Electoral College certification of Joe Biden as President elect.
“We have millions and millions of voters who believe this election was illegitimate and it was stolen. Why do they believe that? Because you have been telling them that,” Lemon ranted.
“Of course, they’re going to believe it. If you would stop telling them that and start telling them the truth, then maybe they would believe the truth, that the election was not stolen and it was a clean election according to everyone who has investigated, most of them Republicans,” he continued.
“So stop saying that we must respect Trump supporters who believe bullshit because it is bullshit that you have been feeding them,” the host further frothed.
“The president and you have been feeding them the BS, and now that they believe it, all of a sudden, again, another self-fulfilling prophecy and feedback loop,” Lemon raged.
Don Lemon has had it with the Republicans “BULLSHIT!”
