Nick Cohen’s genius once more…

“Greenpeace, so harsh on democratic countries, was as excessive in its praise. After registering a few reservations, it declared the dictatorship’s work was ‘tremendous’ and ‘positively unique”. Beijing was providing ‘important lessons to other Chinese cities’.”
From Prince Potemkin’s Olympic Village.

Nick Cohen highlights not only the duplicitous nature of the “Great Sham of our Time” in the Beijing games but the anti-western, pro-totalitarian nature of Greenpeace and the Environmental movement.

But then again, that’s alright. The West appears to have given up on democracy. Much better to have “wise” people in charge – it’s alright, they’re spiritual you know – they’ve been to India.
