Reliably wrong New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman was hit by a pie at Brown yesterday. There's a video! And also a leaflet. The leaflet is transcribed below, because we're sure you all want to know why Thomas Friedman was hit by pies. Oddly it had nothing to do with his mustache or defamation of cab drivers around the world. If a leaflet is not enticement enough, a clip of the pieing is after the jump.
Thomas Friedman deserves a pie in the face...
- because of his sickeningly cheery applaud for free market capitalism's conquest of the planet
- for telling the world that the free market and techno fixes can save us from climate change. From carbon trading to biofuels, these distractions are dangerous in and of themselves, while encouraging inaction with respect to the true problems at hand.
- for helping turn environmentalism into a fake plastic consumer product for the privileged
- for his pure arrogance.
- as the only way to compensate for the ridiculousness of having this fool speak on Earth Day.
On behalf of the earth and all true environmentalists — we, the Greenwash Guerrillas, declare Thomas Friedman's "Green" as fake and toxic to human and planetary health as the cool-whip covering his face.
