Hippies Weep for the Trees

Grab your hankies, moonbats! As for everyone else, this classic is good for another round of laughs:

Maybe it's not such a bad idea to blubber and scream — considering that people like this are now in charge of our energy policy.

On a tip from J.

Your moonbat tears sustain me!

Did that one moonbat woman say "deeply crazy"?

God, people. You have way too much time on your hands. Maybe you should try getting jobs - or at least go home and wash your hair.

Hippies have absolutely stupid political ideas hollow to any logic. Since hippy philosophy is very shallow, nobody actually notices that their ideas contradict each other. They always complain about the government, but they have yet to realize that they are too lazy to get jobs and they live off of the government's welfare money.

Hippies usually adopt pet causes and stick with them for lengths of time. Popular causes are environmentalism and veganism. These pet causes take control of every aspect of their life, which is why hippies are dirty ("if it's yellow let it mellow", irregularly bathing schedules, etc) and their food tastes bad ("meat is murder").

Bad acid.

This is one of the least productive uses of emotional energy imaginable. I doubt if they'd even bemoan the loss of a family member in that fashion. Of course, this type of behavior suggests weak familial ties, anyway.

Enough with the analysis, that was freakin' hilarious!

@ 1:20 the moonbat actually says "bring me to this rock that has the most incredible LIFE... that makes me feel alive."

rocks are alive? well, if she's dropping acid those rocks really are alive. to her. and i'm assuming the moonbat is female. hard to tell usually. might as well be though... i think if u look closely at the opening shots in the video there is a sign saying "check your gonads and manhood here" :O

yep. what Claw said: "Bad acid." (as opposed to "good" acid?)

...and these inmates are now running the asylum.

This is a CLASSIC. "I've looked at clear cuts and burnt forests, but I didn't scream and I didn't cry. And I need to.....................BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!"

Also...isn't that oh-so-native-American drum made from a wood frame? With a leather skin? HMMMMM?

"...and tell them that we LOVE them..."

If I were a tree, I'd have fallen on that dipshit.

Their sweet sweet tears sustain me. Wait, what?

Posted by: Anniee451 at February 5, 2009 3:38 AM

These freaks are making me ashamed of loving the great outdoors.

Here's a link to another (Intentionally) hysterical video, in which a tree responds to the Earth Firsters (Spit) seen in his video:

I had enough of the video the moment the narrator says, "Deep in the woods of North Carolina." Nothing seems right after those words are said.

Posted by: Del Griffith at February 5, 2009 5:15 AM

del - it does seem "deliverance" like...lulululu...

wonder how many fetuses yanked from their safe places they cry over?

Posted by: nancz at February 5, 2009 6:27 AM

Hey! Rocks can be alive! Maybe it was a HORTA?

Posted by: Name at February 5, 2009 6:55 AM

Dang, if I had known this was being filmed in my state I would've given them something to really cry about.

I'm with AC. They make enjoying nature seem embarrassing.

Posted by: cowlove at February 5, 2009 6:55 AM

Rocks are alive? Obviously none of these moonbats took organic chemistry

Posted by: JamesJ at February 5, 2009 7:28 AM

Horta? Possibly. Or maybe one of those steaming rock creatures that made Captain Kirk, Spock and Abraham Lincoln fight it out with bads guys like Ghenghis Khan (was Hitler unavailable?)

I almost cried back then when Honest Abe took a spear in the back.

And their all probibly prochoice vegetarians who adore that doofushead JULIA(BUTTERFY)HILL and lay awake every night listening to trees scream as their choppped down and can hear to scream of leaves in the fall when kids to tramoing through them

Posted by: Spurwing Plover at February 5, 2009 7:39 AM

Screaming trees? They probably go the idea from a British series Tales of the Unexpected.

"The Sound Machine 41 17 May 1981 A Botanist has invented a machine which translates the sound of plants into speech. What he hears gives him a shock. "

Posted by: Name at February 5, 2009 8:06 AM

And they were willing to do this in front of a camera. Narcissists.

Posted by: Alan at February 5, 2009 8:29 AM

Spurwing Plover,

If these people are eating vegetables, they are probably willfully deaf to the screams of the carrots and onions as they are chopped, prepared and boiled alive. I mean, carrots and onions are every bit as alive as trees aren't they?

This video is an intentional joke, right?

Where's a widowmaker when you really need one?

Kathleen, for a second I'd thought she'd said "deeply crazy" too. Power of suggestion, I guess.

When the one nitwit said, "Bring me to these trees," I thought "and when you do, don't forget to bring a rope."

And to the one who said she needed to scream, I'd have replied, "Not as much as you need to wash that hair."

Posted by: Jay Guevara at February 5, 2009 9:18 AM

I wonder if they cried this hard over the murder of Terry Schiavo. Yeeeahh I'm guessing not.

Posted by: Anonymous at February 5, 2009 9:43 AM

Where's a couple of chainsaw toting loggers when you need them?????

Posted by: 66 GOAT at February 5, 2009 11:48 AM

I couldn't make it all the way through the video. I found myself wanting to get a Louisville Slugger (made from a TREE) and go nuts on those losers. The trees would have liked it.

Posted by: yomama at February 5, 2009 12:31 PM

Heehee!!! I CANNOT get enough of that vid!

Posted by: 3bus at February 5, 2009 12:58 PM

Some screwball green moonbats are so screwed up they probibly think trees they they would rather see a child run down on main street then see a bug smashed

"If these people are eating vegetables, they are probably willfully deaf to the screams of the carrots and onions as they are chopped, prepared and boiled alive. I mean, carrots and onions are every bit as alive as trees aren't they?"
Good point.
I'm reminded of an excellent comic book series I've recently gotten into, 'Freshmen.' They're a group of college students who all received superpowers from a scientific accident. Some are blessings, others are curses. One of them who falls into the latter group, given the codename "Greenthumb," was an environmentalist and a strict vegan who gained the ability to communicate with plants. This turned out to be VERY bad for him, as he can now hear the fruits and vegetables which made up his entire diet begging him to not eat them.

There was during the 70s a animated version of STAR TREK where they come accross a planet inhaited by intellegent plants le by one named AGMAR so what would these intellegent plant creatures think about vegans?

Er, no. More than likely the same people weeping over the tree would have celebrated Terri Schiavo's spirit being set free from her mortal coil by way of painful starvation as she lay helpless, and seen the Schindlers' tears as symbols of patriarchal oppression.

One or two of them might even have given Mike Schiavo a celebratory bang.

During high school and college I thought the world of the hippy lifestyle, driving around in vans and growing vegetables, not worrying about money, enjoying music, making crappy art, it seemed like such a great way to live.

Finding out later who hippies really were (are) and what their lifestyle was all about was like learning Santa Claus isn't real.

If we look hard enough, maybe we can find the missing Howard Dean somewhere in here.
