The Sierra Club Love Their Gas Guzzlers (But Want Us “Little People” to Drive Smart Cars)

Leftists just aren’t content unless they’re fighting for the latest progressive cause. It’s a great opportunity to lecture the unwashed “flyovers,” while brandishing their “impressive credentials” on a number of issues. The cause du jour is Global Warming — err Climate Change (or whatever they’re calling it this year) and, on this Earth Day, Americans are getting an extra special dose of lefty “persuasion” about our driving habits from groups such as the Sierra Club.

While preaching to Americans about cutting down on pesky CO2 emissions is a noble idea, turns out members of the Sierra Club’s board of directors aren’t practicing what they preach. According to data gathered by the Environmental Policy Alliance, most of the top officials are driving around in gas-guzzling vehicles, like Jaguars, despite the fact that the Sierra Club strongly supported the Obama administration’s increase in minimum fuel economy standards to 54.4 miles per gallon (mpg) by 2025. Jaguars get around 18 mpg. Hypocrisy anyone?

Hypocrisy is nothing new with leftists. Al Gore, the King of Global Warming and the face of clean energy sold his cable station, “Current TV” to the anti-American, “Al-Jazeera,” which is owned by the fossil-fuel-rich royal family of Qatar (some of the biggest oil producers in the world). To add insult to injury, Gore’s Current TV was big crusader of Obama’s tax hikes on the rich, yet Gore himself made sure to get his epic payday before all those tax increases went into effect. So what happened to saving the planet and making the rich pay their “fair share”? Nothing to see here; move along.

It seems that liberal activism gives many leftists the cover to able to “serve the greater good,” while assuaging guilt about their lifestyle choices. Or maybe the Sierra Club officials are driving Jaguars out of concern for the species. Aren’t they endangered?

Case closed.

Anita Gunn

California PolitiChick "Anita Gunn" is a closeted conservative working the entertainment business. Anita started at a major talent agency, assisting a well-known music agent, and is now a VP at a major movie studio. Anita grew up in a very liberal Jewish home, and bought the Utopian dream of a one world government and social justice for all. Anita did her best to "save the planet," pontificating about how the evil Republicans and greedy corporations were destroying the earth. 9/11 shook Anita's foundation and everything that she believed. By the time Obama burst into the scene in 2007, Anita was morphing into a conservative. Of course, coming out of the closet as a conservative in the entertainment industry is pretty much career suicide, she says, so in 2011, the name "Anita Gunn" was born. Anita has done commentary about the culture war on such radio shows as the Dr. Gina Show, Real Side with Joe Messina and Socialism is not an Option on Blog Talk Radio. Anita started a secret conservative Facebook group which has 1000 active members, and is part of another secret group of artists who behind such videos as Cruz Against the Machine. There are still some remnants from Anita's liberal days, including the love of Astrology and wearing platforms and bellbottoms--and yet signs of her conservative switch can be seen by her ever-present gun necklace. Anita says her goal is to help rebrand and hip up the conservative movement to include more artists, musicians, actors, gays and minorities and young people. Anita's belief is that if she saw the light, there are others who would also embrace the conservative movement, if only just shown the way. Follow Anita Gunn on Twitter @AnitaGunn1.
