EPA Funnels $ To Liberal Organizations
My problem with this is that this is just another example of big government wasting tax payer dollars. I would be just as angry if the money was being funneled to Conservative groups.
But beyond the EPA's mission of protecting human health and the environment, the grant money will boost the coffers, and perhaps the influence, of some far-left groups.
The EPA defines “environmental justice” as the notion that minority, low income and indigenous communities deserve the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards, equal access to the decision-making process and a healthy environment in which to live, learn, and work as wealthier communities do.
Below are just a few of the 76 groups getting taxpayer money for various “environmental justice” projects.
I don't blame you. I blame bad policy. I blame the interventionists. I blame the neoconservatives who preach this stuff, who believe in it like a religion -- that they have to promote American goodness even if you have to bomb and kill people. In short, I don’t blame America; I blame neocons." — Ron Paul
