Video: Hey, how about giving “human” rights to nature?

posted at 3:25 pm on May 6, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Yes, I am still on vacation, but I can’t let this gem pass without some sort of comment. Fox News features a new environmental movement that wants to grant “human rights” to very non-human objects — and in some cases, inanimate objects. Via Greg Hengler, no one will be at all surprised to find out that Van Jones is at the forefront of this effort:

Actually, what this should be called is the Ambulance Chaser Full Employment Act. It would make law schools the center of American civilization, churning out attorneys for literally every object under the sun, including the sun itself. If people think the EPA and the Endangered Species Act act as a sledgehammer to business (especially energy production), just wait until dirt, rocks, trees, and streams suddenly get specific “rights” standing in court. The entire idea targets private property as a concept. In fact, at least philosophically if not legally, the concept of human rights for nature and natural objects turns private property ownership into a form of slavery.

Mostly, this movement is a clumsy enough attack on production and private property that its transparent hostility to traditional American values makes it a dead letter, a cry from the lunatic fringe. But what does it say about Barack Obama that he gave one of its leaders a key spot in the beginning of his administration?

Something tells me Obama would be all for this.

This is insanity. How is it these people are out there, walking on the streets among the citizenry? In any other era, they’d be locked away and given shock treatment. WOW!!!

capejasmine on May 6, 2011 at 3:39 PM

I don’t know how many people have noticed, but these weirdos have been pretty quiet for many years, (at least in my lifetime), but the moment Obama got elected, they all came out of the closet, because they knew he would give them a platform. He certainly hasn’t let them down has he?

Human rights come from only one source. (read the constitution – the one that you guys loathe) Rights come from Nature’s God -the same God that told man to have dominion over all things. Who would be dumb enough to dispute God?

Let the danged rocks and trees write their own constitution and when they achieve that high level of human nature – I’ll agree with your absurd position. Until then -it’s dominion baby. Bambi-burgers tonight to celebrate dominion!

K, I don’t like that the US Fish and Wildlife corrals and control all the varieties of trout (stock it) and steelhead in my area. I cringe and cry and scream to those stupid fish on Lake Erie that to swim upstream is one of the dumbest moves these fish ever make. I scream, “TURN AROUND!” All these fish wanna do is hook up with a mate and reproduce. It’s ingrained in their lil’ brains and don’t know any better.

So to make my case: These fish don’t know that they are entering US Federal controlled streams and they get trapped with barely any room to roam. These fish are still absolutely forced to swim because c’mon they’re fish, they have to swim. Then these fish discover that US Government has a hidden agenda. How? By milking them like cows (Yes! the insult! Talk about population control!) Like fish can’t reproduce by themselves. Unbelievable.

Then these federal employees that hold these fish in inhumane conditions like concentration camps, haul these ignorant innocent fish in bucketfuls and release them in ponds so that eager fishermen and children get to hook ‘em and end their lives, or have permanent injuries to their mouths because they are merely having fun. These fish endure additional pain and suffering by being unhooked and released back in the water if they are not large enough.

Then these injured fish swims, sooner or later, to another lure with a nasty hook that another human throws with the sole (pun intended) purpose to kill said fish.

FISHES OF THE WORLD, UNITE!

Mine as well. I understand the argument that a fetus isn’t as deserving of protection as those who are born, if anything just because we won’t have a trial every time a woman miscarries just to prove she wasn’t somehow responsible (even if through negligence), but to argue that nature itself is deserving of this kind of protection and then arguing that a fetus is lower than a rock is just beyond my understanding.

Hey, how about giving natural rights to humans?

The Center for Public Justice: Natural Law and the Foundations of Government

The debate over “natural law,” which goes back at least to the origins of Greek philosophy and biblical revelation, concerns the question of whether there are lasting standards higher than human will and opinion that have binding force on human beings in the conduct of their responsibilities. Reference to natural law is a reference to some form of principle or norm by which particular human laws can be judged either just or unjust, either good or bad. And, of course, natural law has to do with issues such as the proper limits of government, the appropriate balance between individual and institutional obligations, and the very nature of human freedom.

http://www.cpjustice.org/stories/storyReader$1012

“No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him.” Thomas Jefferson

“The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on Earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but only to have the law of nature for his rule.” Samuel Adams.

Talking head: “Given the current economic climate in this country, it remains unclear whether Americans are in the mood to give plants, animals and rocks the legal rights to sue.”

Right, it all comes down to our mood and the current economic climate cuase we’re all really stupid otherwise.

Hey, why stop at rocks, trees and rivers? How about bacteria? Don’t they have a right to exist? Taking that anti-biotic for strep or an ear infection is just plain murder! The only moral alternative is to relocate that bacteria that’s eating up your inner ear and throat! I am sure ObamaCare and congress could come up with a special treatment plan for that!

Kenosha Kid on May 6, 2011 at 6:52 PM

…and most of ‘em are registered Democrats.

The Obama Experiment has been dearly useful, if only for one thing. It’s highlighted for the average voter what we curmudgeonly old conservatives have known since the Sixties: that the Left, which claims to speak for the “common/litte man”, the “worker”, and the “forgotten man” actually couldn’t see his constituent with a telescope.

…once you pass the visible frequencies on the Left end of the light spectrum, there’re some folks who aren’t just wacky (“Bezerkley”), but are downright dangerously messed up. They aren’t just the odd crank and odd “old hippie”…they’re slick, well-rehearsed, committed, otherworldly totalitarians like Van Jones, Cass Sunstein, that “science czar” guy and others who want our national sovereignty — and, by extension, your personal sovereignty — and they want it now.

…and, like the Borg, they just keep on coming….

…they don’t learn when their efforts fail or when their adherents finally grow up. They “know” that their motives are pure, and their ideology is right, even if history has shown that their ideology has lead to millions of deaths by starvation and assasination.

Stalin’s efforts at creating a worker’s Utopia failed. Tweak the message and drive on. Hitler’s collectivization and social justice efforts failed. Tweak the message and drive on. The Khmer Rouge fail to create an agrarian wonderland, but do manage to kill anywhere from 1/10th to 1/3rd of their neighbors. Tweak the message and drive on.

Van Jones, et. al. only know one tune: communism is good. No matter how bad it is, it’s good. Therefore, capitalism is bad, no matter how much it elevates the individual, creates wealth, facilitates leisure, and gives those beloved “masses” bread and medicine. Gotta destroy that pesky capitalism.

How? Power.

Get governments to surrender sovereignty, the only tool governments have to protect the sovereignty of their citizens.

So…you make capitalism look silly and uncool (Michael Moore, a 300-pound millionaire communist), make it look unfair and inhumanely detached from the common run of people (academia, made up of comfortable subsidized communists), and now make it look like Mamma Nature’s worst enemies (Van Jones, who still soft-pedling race-hucksterism, but has found a winner with “greenism”).

Add greenism to domestic communism’s long-time constituencies (labor, race hucksterism, etc.), and maybe you’ll get traction. Nevermind that these movements, as they currently exist, work against the interests of their intended beneficiaries. Just organize ‘em, get ‘em marching and chanting, and wait for the press cameras to show up.

Ed’s 1000% right:

It would make law schools the center of American civilization, churning out attorneys for literally every object under the sun, including the sun itself.

…if this were messaged out to Ma and Pa America, already enjoying the “benefits” provided to them and their business by the EPA, Endangered Species Act, and all the other regulatory vehicles out there, imagine how happy Ma and Pa would be to take Ma Nature as a defendant to their bosoms.

Not to get all biblical on you, I offer up a parallel: in Genesis 3, our old friend the Devil (Dr. Johnson called him “the first Whig”, so he’s got a political agenda) used doubt to encourage the first sin. Doubt? Yes. “Did God really say that you’d die if you ate that apple? Surely not!”

…and Old Nick’s still using doubt — the opposite of faith — today. When he finds a tool that works, he sticks with it.

So to Mr. Jones. Find a tool — in this case, the desire to be good stewards of our planet — and wratchet it up beyond all common sense, and the collective society that you and your friends “guide” arrives in a pretty little package.

…hmmm…”The Devil and Van Jones”…I wonder what it’d be rated….

Esthier on May 6, 2011 at 6:15 PM

Obama destroyed all of the left’s lies about a woman’s body and issues of when life begins. when he argued that a baby fully born outside the “mother’s”(gasp)body should be killed anyway if she intended to kill it. He didn’t say how long this “intent to kill” legalism lasted -days, weeks,years? In any case, he made it clear that abortion is about one thing and one thing only -killing 100% human -100% living- 100% innocent, life. Evil is evil no matter how you call it choice or feral tissue or intent. 53 million and counting -something no other nation or dictator in history has matched.

Don L on May 6, 2011 at 8:38 PM

Continuing this point about Obama’s penchant for destroying innocent life – it is noteworthy that even after this Senator from Illinois fought aggressively to kill fully born children -he was elected by American voters. I know many who knew what he was and voted for him anyway. The culture of death if far bigger than just the enthusiatic left.

HISTORY LESSON !

4,000 BC—–Ruling class looking down on “soil tillers” decide they can’t have land because they are too stupid. Ruling Class takes land, makes the “soil tillers” slaves.

2,000 BC—– Ruling class elders in tribe decide all women in camps aren’t smart enough to draw water from well at the right time. Tribe rulers force women to get water before sunup or after sundown.

11 A.D.—-Roman rulers jail Jewish farmers for having more than one farm animal in effort to starve undesirables off lands.

2011 A. D.—–In effort to shut down Capitalism and the ability for Serfs/Citizens to up into Middle class or better the Ruling Class (now called “Progressives”) force people to give rights to their land, get permits to do ANYTHING and penalize initiative.

CONTROL CONTROL CONTROL…….nothing changes.

I don’t know how many people have noticed, but these weirdos have been pretty quiet for many years, (at least in my lifetime), but the moment Obama got elected, they all came out of the closet, because they knew he would give them a platform. He certainly hasn’t let them down has he?

Oh I definitely noticed, and I think any thinking, rational, sane American who has been and is paying attention would agree as well. Same thing with the racial attacks of black on white and all the rest. All kinds of radical nutjobs have been emboldened and come out of the woodwork. They no longer feel the need to hide, but instead to boldly broadcast who they are and their agenda without a care in the world.
Scary times folks, scary times.
