Who's trying to kill the Sierra Club?
America's most powerful environmental advocate, the Sierra Club, is in real danger of having its agenda hijacked and reversed. Somebody, right now, is in the process of trying to take it over. Three seats on the board are at risk of being filled by three anti-immigration candidates, and the club's membership knows nothing about these candidates, which was how the interlopers planned it.
Why would three anti-immigration candidates want to serve on the board of an environmental group? In this case, to change the organization's direction. The environmental connection is that overpopulation is destroying America, and that sounds reasonable to me. But...
...anti-immigration people? I haven't heard the term. It sounds... loaded, fully loaded with divisive potential, sort of a dirty political bomb, gets everybody hopping mad and not gonna take it anymore. Damn if it doesn't sound like Rove. But it's not.
Why would anti-immigration people who have no name, who share such a precise agenda, executed on an exacting timetable, not just infiltrating the Sierra Club but other social activist organizations, according to Groundswell Sierra, a club publication.
Who are these guys?
Their names are Dick Lamm, Frank Morris, and David Pimentel; they may have been advanced by a group called 'SUSPS.' It's unclear if this is an acronym or just coincidentally an extremely difficult word to say, and almost impossible to whisper. Say it.
Got to be Karl...
I just think it's funny. Three candidates have no Sierra Club experience but "hold interlocking roles on the governing Boards of outside anti-immigration organizations, some of whom are actively seeking to influence the Sierra Club's election," according to the club.
Quick background -- and this has NOTHING to do with this story, okay? The Sierra Club is the same organization that brought a suit to the Supreme Court asking it to require Vice President Dick Cheney to make public all transcripts of his meetings with his energy advisory committee which included executives from Enron and Haliburton.
This is the same lawsuit that just today provoked a 21-page tantrum from Justice Antonin Scalia in response to the Sierra Club's request that he recuse himself on the basis of his friendship with Cheney.
All of which is probably beside the point and has nothing to do with the strange group of weirdos who are trying to shut down, yes, shut down, the Sierra Club (at least as we know it).
Sounds like Karl Rove... but it's not. It is a quiet group of people without a name who came from nowhere. People who hate foreign people. Susps.
