Google marked the birthday of late environmentalist Rachel Carson today and the teabaggers are pulling their hair out in rage. Via Twitchy:
Of all the people in the world to commemorate today, people who have done truly great things, this is who Google chose? Today would have been marine biologist and “Silent Spring” author Rachel Carson’s 107th birthday. Unfortunately, thanks to Carson’s radical environmentalism, millions of children were robbed of the chance to celebrate a fraction of that many birthdays.
According to the supportive tweets posted at Twitchy, Carson is up there with Hitler, Mao, and Stalin as one of the worst mass murderers in history. And, therefore, “leftists worship her.” The truth about Rachel Carson and DDT is far different than the baggers claim, of course.
