The 10:10 video about blowing up people who disagree (which is supposed to be funny, but since I disagree I don’t get the joke) is apparently going viral.Not, I’m not linking to it, though the sites below are.
In the puritanical world I live in the idea of using children for one’s sick humor just isn’t done. Sure, the exploding kids are global warming infidels, but what if it was a Taliban flick blowing up non-believing kids? It’d be funny wouldn’t it? To them, anyway. How about Democrats blowing up conservative kids? I’m sure that Move-on.org and such would find that to be hilarious.
So I guess I can take this a couple of ways:
- It’s just a piece produced by bigots/elitists for their own crowd, the people who “get it.” Maybe I’ll browse their site for their KKK affiliation. They’re obviously not part of the “tolerance and diversity” crowd.
- They’re clueless about people who aren’t part of their crowd (much like our President, with his “Guns and bibles…” remark) so greatly misjudged the reaction to the video. Any belief system that doesn’t fit theirs is to be ridiculed, or worse. They call stuff like this, Edgy
Of course, given the things that people in this crowd have already said, well, it’s easy to believe that there’s something a little nastier than just comedy going on.
From the AirVent:
What the heck is wrong with envirowhackos. This isn’t funny, it isn’t sane, it will convince noone of anything, it’s gratuitously violent, it’s indirectly threatening and worst of all, it’s obnoxiously ignorant. Save the world by blowing up people who won’t do exactly what enviros tell them.My god these idiots should be ashamed.
The rest: Cull the Skeptics
Eu Referendum has a good write-up about it:
Most chilling of all is the casual attitudes and lack of emotion of the cold-blooded killers, the blood-splattered “teacher” happily smiling while giving homework instructions to her shocked class, after having murdered two of her charges. The SS would have been so proud of her.
The rest: Eco-jihad – the movie
GreenPeace should be right in line with the video:
Greenpeace is known for breaking the law, trespassing, putting other people at risk, and chaining its members to drilling platforms to protest and, more importantly, to reap the capital of publicity. That’s one thing – but it’s quite another to recruit, psychologically manipulate, and exploit a child for the purpose waging psychological war on people who have different opinions. Greenpeace is ratcheting up the level of violence.

And, of course, there’s WUWT, with several posts on this thing.
Well, well, somebody came to their senses. About two hours ago, around 6:30AM PST, 10:10 took down their disgusting video showing school children were skeptical of carbon reduction suggestions from their teacher, get blown up in a gory bloodbath that covered other students with gore. It was first covered at WUWT here:
10:10 exploding skeptical children video “disappears”
A very weak non-apology from 10:10 – no admission that they have the slightest clue as to what the fuss is about.
This comment from WUWT pretty much sums it up:
I am still gobsmacked that this is real. They actually thought this was a good idea? Amazing. Goes to show how out-of-touch you can get when you surround yourself with like-minded thinkers, errr maybe not thinkers in this case, but you get the point.
