    Personally, I’m not stunned by this.

    “Environmentalists” do this every time they have one of their public childrens’ parties…uuh, I mean environmental rallies.
    I remember one of the groundsmen’s comment as he and his men were cleaning up the massive mess left after a huge rally in Brazil (IIRC) years ago: “These people talk big about taking care of the environment, but in reality, they’re just pigs!” I thought he put it very well.

    No surprise here either. It’s part and parcel with everything the left does. In other words, “clean up after me”. I see it all the time in the back country. Trash everywhere and the parking area is full of Volvos sporting “save the whatever” bumperstickers. Libs are hypocrites in everything that they do.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Hahaha, San Francisco deserves it.

    If it weren’t for the excellent dim sum that I buy on occasion at a particular shop in Chinatown, I wouldn’t care if the whole city collapsed and slid into the Pacific.

    I’d have been gobsmacked if the brain-dead Gaia cultists hadn’t trashed the park. More hypocrisy from the enviro-nazis who demand others live up to the standards they willfully refuse to abide by.

    I bet they all felt good about “saving Mother Earth” as they piled up their garbage. The former Soviet Union did the same thing, lecturing the world on environmental issues as they made a toxic mess.

  • Matt

    So liberals who love the earth trash it….yeah I agree…go figure.

  • Toa

    Everything the Left does is just a small preview of what would come down if they realized their long-held dream of absolute power: the “Enlightened Elite” living like spoiled teenagers, while we slaves live at their beck-and-call.

  • chris

    A clean earth, water, and air is not remotely part of an environmentalist’s agenda.

    Interesting how you will find many conservatives say that they consider themselves conservationists.

    Liberals call themselves environmentalists.

    Two totally different agendas.

    I have nothing against Earth Day in particular. In and of itself it seems pretty innocuous. Of course preventing pollution’s a good thing. Trying to make it left-wing or right-wing doesn’t seem to be in the spirit of a global unifying holiday. There are absolutely right-wing environmentalist arguments. They’re called property rights. This kind of thing is to be expected though. Just look at the Occupy camps.

    SOMETHING VERY FISHY AT GALLUP:

    Has Obama had any good news in the last week or so? No, only pretty horrible news right? So then why, according to Gallup, has his approval rating skyrocketed by 7 points and has gone from trailing Romney to leading him by 7 points?

    Seriously? Is there ANY explanation for this at all other than being complete BS? Meanwhile, on Rasmussen, Romney leads Obama by 4 today. Hey that is ONLY 11 POINT different than Gallup.

    David, Self Defense Retailer commented:

    I personally have lots against Earth Day, especially since it was and still is touted as a Secular Religious Holiday. The basic concept from the start was Leftist Conformity, not about doing something worthwhile and sustainable. Showing forced respect for Mother Gaia is for those who Leftists deem heretics (hint, anyone who thinks even a micron differently).

    Something fishy at Gallup? Well, DUH! There is only one poll that matters, the one held nationally on 6 November, all others are propaganda pushing an agenda, subtle or not.

    To be fair, from this story and the story in this morning’s S.F. Chronicle, this mess appears to have been left by yuppies partying in the sun, not by greenies. The “Dateway” reference is to the Marina Safeway grocery store, which has been an upscale neighborhood singles’ cruising spot for decades. The run on beer, and the discussion of caloric content of different vodkas, says yuppie, of which the Marina District has an abundance.

    It’s not hypocritical environmentalists … this time …

  • Ariel

    You should know by now. “Polls are for strippers and cross country skiers.” Sarah Palin, Sept. 3, 2011 at Indianola, Iowa. They are tools to shape public opinion, nothing more. The strategy is to create the illusion of large swings in voter sympathy, thus hyping the importance of day to day tracking. The more attention and, more importantly, credibility these polls garner, the more they can mold public opinion toward their desired agenda, much like ‘prepping the battlefield” before an invasion.

    Oops! Did I say “invasion”? I wonder who the invaders are?

    To be fair Leftists are a bunch of entitlement pigs, yuppies or greenies. No matter how you parse this, a huge mess was left by childish whiny brats for others who are responsible adults to clean up.

    Sounds a lot like what the current administration is doing.

  • A_Nonny_Mouse

    I read a comment elsewhere, recently, that gave some insight into the Liberal Mind:

    Liberals profess love of/ respect for/ allegiance to/ a “type”. (Sort of like the Platonic “Ideal”.) (Or maybe “archetype” would be a better word?)

    But they feel free to disregard any specific INSTANCE of the “type” (the thing idealized); they claim that {this particular instance, person, or situation} is an “inauthentic member” of the type. So they can be ALL FOR Wymyn’s Rights and Freedom to Choose but -dang, if you make the Wrong Choice you’re the bullseye of their wrath. And similarly, Black Power is super-duper-fine unless you’re talking about Allen West or Herman Cain – THOSE fellows aren’t “real” blacks, you see; so they don’t count.

    I remember an old Peanuts cartoon: Lucy stands in front of her “Psychiatric Help 5c – The doctor is In” stand saying, “I love mankind. It’s just PEOPLE I can’t stand”. Typically Librull, eh?

    This is what Obama is doing to the country. Liberals make up rules and issue demands on everyone else, but they exempt themselves from their own edicts. America looks like that park after Mr. Hope and Change — dictates to everyone else and does whatever the hell he wants.

  • The Way, The Truth & The Life

    My human side wants to say: “What can you expect from that, which truly, in essence, is nothing but trash itself? I won’t even humanize these piles of garbage. They don’t deserve it. They don’t respect in any way the true God. How do you expect them to treat a false one?” That having been said, still, in my heart, I am compelled to pray, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Bestow upon them the gift of humanity and faith, love, hope and charity for all humankind and for this home he has given us: Genesis 1:26 “Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” Gen 2:7 “The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living being.” At this point, they are nothing but dirt. I pray God does this for them as he did for Adam. Maybe then, they will treat this home like the Garden of Eden as God intended.

    I posted earlier that the mess was not made on Earth Day, but rather the day before. Last Saturday was the hottest day of the year, and the parks were packed with people. Earth Day was Sunday, which was cold and dreary. The mess was not made on Earth Day or at an Earth Day event. The mess was made at a park next to some of the most expensive homes in the City, in a part of the city that is relatively conservative politically. So the entire premise here is wrong on all counts.

    Apparently my earlier post is gone, though. No reason that reality should get in the way!

  • C L

    Ah, generalizations. Some people do actually care about the environment. Just because people who called themselves environmentalists trashed a park doesn’t mean that there aren’t people who do practice what they preach (or who just practice without even preaching).

    liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent.

  • The West

    It was sunny and in the mid 70’s on Saturday, in a town where you can’t see through the fog for weeks at a time. The parties in the parks had nothing to do with earth day.

  • Suezenne Fordham

    That’s NOTHING compared to the Ntl forest just above where I live condoms and tampax and used TP in the streams dirty clothes and used underwear. booze bottles and cans … from the illegals who think that is their right, and oh yes , filthy baby paper diapers!! jusy freakin sickening!!!

    Since you insist this is all a lie, take that matter up with the Leftist loons at HuffPo. They are the ones that reported the park was trashed on Earth Day, Mr. Hoft just aggregated the story. Or did you not even deign to notice the link to the original story?

    Ultimately it doesn’t matter one whit if it was on Earth Day or the day before. A bunch of spoiled whiny Leftist pigs befouled a park and expected someone else to clean up their mess. It was not an isolated incident but a defining characteristic of such childish partying.

  • Bunko

    FurryGuy, in case you don’t know much about SF, this took place in the Marina, well known in SF for being the most conservative in the city (read: least “leftist”), not an Earth Day event of any kind, not on Earth Day. And if you follow the original link, it confirms all of this, and the SFist posts again today about this: http://sfist.com/2012/04/24/fox_nation_sees_trash_in_san_franci.php

    It makes a great story: “liberals trash park on earth day!” Too bad it’s not true.

  • Ralph

    Can we be clear that this was not “green activists,” nor was this earth day. Did anyone read the original linked article?

    It was a sunny day in San Francisco’s Marina District. The Marina is well known in SF for being the most politically CONSERVATIVE neighborhood. They trashed the park the day before Earth Day (for no other reason that it was a nice day.) The more “liberal” neighborhoods were extremely unhappy by this, as was the “liberal” city hall.

    I’m sorry, but this entire article is completely off-base. Click through to the original article.

  • chukalukabus

    Well this thread of thought lost me when some of the folks posting started using HuffPost as a credential that they thought added some sort cognitive gravitas of legitimacy to their argument.

  • Derby

    For a Midwest counterexample, here in Flint the liberals celebrated earth day by teaching about good food, handing out trees, and planning community cleanups.

  • G.Sarducci

    In case you guys aren’t aware, Earth Day is just a crypto-communist celebration of Vladimir Lenin’s birthday (22 April 1870). Since Green is just a new coat of paint over Red, I’m not surprised they trashed the park. Tree huggers usually don’t seem that intelligent, anyway.

    For the folks who say this wasn’t earth day, OK. Just refer to any OTHER gathering of leftists, i.e. the occupy crowd, any protest, or any other leftist gathering. They leave a mess every time. Compare to the big Tea Party rallies, which are generally clean and tidy. The occupy folks not only trash the parks they seize, but actually defoliated the park in D.C. The place was ruined, not a blade of grass left.

    Just some info for all you getting mad. You’ve been duped, this story was fabricated. The party was just a party before earth day held by people just wanting to get drunk.

  • Liz

    This neighborhood is one of the most conservative neighborhoods in San Francisco, FYI. But regardless, I’m not sure what the general political mood of SF has to do with the trash….??

  • Pantfish

    Wow, so it turns out

    1) The party was from before Earth day
    2) It wasn’t an Earth day celebration, and
    3) The people behind the trashing weren’t green activists, or there to promote anything beyond getting themselves drunk

    I think you guys fabricated an entire story around “there’s some trash in San Francisco”.

  • ROFLquest

    You guys have no clue what you’re talking about. This was a party weekend celebrating the nicest day of the year, not an organized Earth Day event.

    Fort Mason borders the Marina and Cow Palace, home to dude-bros with convertibles and sweaters tied around their necks and vacuous blondes. You’re seeing something akin to a frat party in action, and the most likely place in SF to find a gathering of fox news viewers and gateway pundit readers.

    That pretty much solidifies the political stance of the illegal aliens that Obama wants to give amnesty this year… because just look what the illegals have done to the ranch lands and deserts as they tromp into the U.S. over the southern border… it looks like a cargo ship of old clothes and trash have been scattered for hundreds of mile. I guess, for the environment, nothing will be worse than a liberal illegal.

    It was the environmentalist that yeas ago forced the rest of us to use plastic bags! Remember the paper or plastic question when checking out at the grocery store? Even back then virtually all grocery bags, newspapers, etc were made from recycled paper, but we were forced to switch to plastic bags, which are made from OIL!!! Now plastic bags are referred to as urban tumble weeds and are being phased out and they are being replaced by…. wait for it…PAPER BAGS!!!! SMDH!!!!
