The following video of two bleeding-heart liberals talking about bees demonstrates exactly what is wrong with the left-wing socialist mindset. We will share highlights, and our Right Wing Commentary, below.
Below are some excerpts from the video, with the addition of commentary from our good friend and associate, Generic Conservative Talk-Show Host:
David Pakman: …we now know that the British Beekeepers Association says that about a third of all honeybee colonies in England did not survive the winter as we now are moving into summer. Tell us a little bit about that.
Denis Campbell: Well, we had a very wet and a very cold winter. Unseasonably so. It extended for a very long period of time, and because the fall was also quite wet… we’d get a month’s worth of rain in twenty four hours and that happened several time during the months of September and October. What that did was it affected the ability of these bees to forage for food, so they basically suffered something called “hive isolation” where they starve to death in the hive.
Generic Conservative Talk-Show Host: WHAT A BUNCH OF WEAK LITTLE PUSSIES! If these bees are too stupid to know how to survive freaking RAIN, then maybe they DESERVE TO DIE. Ever think about that? It’s called natural selection: stupid things that can’t survive the winter are supposed to die out.
David Pakman: We actually saw just recently EU member states actually voted to suspend three specific pesticides which, it’s thought that they they cause serious harm to bees… But that’s not gonna make a difference to what we’ve been seeing for years now.
Denis Campbell: Not immediately but it could eventually help. What they’ve done is they’ve passed an EU directive which goes into effect on the first December. What will happen as a result of that is that those three pesticides be completely banned. The problem is, it does not help us for this current summer period, which is of great concern.
Generic Conservative Talk-Show Host: Oh I see how it is! You’re going to PASS RESTRICTIVE LEGISLATION just because a few lazy bees are too stupid and lazy to figure out how to survive. That’s totally unfair to all of the bees that do survive, by the way! You’re basically giving free help to the lazy, sick, inept bees that are all, like, “OMG… I can’t figure out how to digest this pesticide, I think I’m gonna give up and die instead of trying harder!” THIS IS TOTALLY FOSTERING A CULTURE OF DEPENDENCY!!!!11
David Pakman: There are those who say, “Okay, so bees are dying, but what does it really matter?” So, talk a little bit about why this is so important and extends beyond just [the fact that] we care about the number of bees.
Denis Campbell: Well, you know, bees play such a vital role. Right now I’m looking out the window of the office here, and we’ve had some rain, and they are literally pollinating all of the flowers, as well as the various parts of the field. Everything is in bloom here in this country, and without the pollination, the bees taking the pollen way and using it to make the honey, the plants themselves basically suffocate, strangle and die.
Generic Conservative Talk-Show Host: Typical socialist liberals do not understand the glorious magic of Free Market Capitalism! Who cares if all the bees die out? Surely, other insects will see the opportunity in the market place, and will therefore fill in that economic niche and start pollinating the flowers themselves. It’s basically like firing a few hundred workers: you can always find new ones. If the bees weren’t so lazy and did their jobs right, they wouldn’t have gotten fired in the first place.
So, as you can see, typical liberals are just trying to play on your emotions. They are trying to make you feel bad for the poor stupid bees. WELL, MAYBE THE BEES ARE JUST LAZY! If they are in trouble, it’s their own damn fault. We can’t be trying to “save the bees”, because that ultimately just makes them dependent on the State.
Everyone knows that if they were good, strong, hard-working American bees, like we had back in the good old days, they wouldn’t be dying out to begin with.
