#ClimateMarch 2017 was your usual conglomeration of anti-Trump protesters, many of them “led” by loud-mouthed, indoctrinated community organizers who needed to read scripts off their carbon energy-powered smartphones to deliver anti-capitalist, colonialist, pro-alphabet soup gender, social justice(s) messages.
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio flew in (probably via private jet) and held up a little sign to show his photo-op solidarity. No one really expected the hefty Al Gore to ditch an air-conditioned SUV and walk in the mild DC heat and humidity, and at the end of the day, the only “cultural appropriation” was committed by arrhythmic dancing fools in futile search of the beat.
While they claimed to be advocates for the indigenous, urban poor, and everyone else negatively affected by the ravages of climate change, many of the speakers could have missed a meal or two, considering how well the movement is being funded.
The People’s Climate March scheduled for Saturday has a powerful billionaire behind it: Democrat Party donor George Soros. Six of the groups received during that time more than $1 million each: the Center for Community Change, the NAACP, the Natural Resources Defense Council, People’s Action, Public Citizen and the Union of Concerned Scientists.
While some of its partners are climate-change organizations like NextGen Climate, founded by top Democratic donor Tom Steyer, the march is also heavily backed by labor unions and social-justice groups such as Color of Change, which is also backed by Mr. Soros.

While blaming all on the Trump Administration’s rollback of progressive regulations that have hurt businesses for decades, the progressives failed to mention that the communities most in need of clean water and stable power grids have been under the representation of the Democrat Party for generations.
The reigning in of the Environmental Protection Agency was also a sore spot for the climate marchers while the whiners failed to mention damage the rogue employees have caused, either by callous neglect as in the undrinkable water in Detroit or irresponsible incompetence.
The 2015 Gold King Mine waste water spill was an environmental disaster that began when EPA personnel caused the release of three million gallons of mine waste water, including heavy metals such as cadmium and lead, and other toxic elements, such as arsenic, beryllium, zinc, iron and copper into Cement Creek, a tributary of the Animas River in Colorado.
The spill affects waterways of municipalities in the states of Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah, as well as the Navajo Nation.
The Obama EPA hid behind the “Federal Tort Claims Act” so while taking responsibility for the spill, they have been fighting those affected from the financial damages the agency’s action caused.
One unique characteristic of progressive marches is while their representatives come from dot-orgs that are supposed to be nonpartisan, they are pro-Democrat, tax-exempt nonprofits that demand more taxes be paid by everyone else, especially the rich like Soros and Steyer who fund said tax-exempt nonprofits and get the useful idiots to make very public fools out of themselves and everything they claim to represent.
