If there were a real life conservative Lorax this depiction would be pretty spot on. Conservatives have shown just how little they care about the environment and even less about people.
In this animated parody of The Lorax, the Lorax cared about the truffula trees, until he was introduced to greed and power when he got his hands on “Atlas Shrugged” and some monetary donations, which quickly changed his tune in a big way. He no longer cared about the environment or well-being of the people.
It’s a perfect depiction of conservatives today. Continuous disregard for environment and the well-being of everyday citizens has landed many in horrific situations. Conservative denial about climate change is preventing us from making better choices and adding environmental regulations to help slow down the dangers lying ahead. The conservative Lorax would be proud of Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder for giving the government employees clean water
The conservative Lorax would definitely be proud of Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder for giving the government employees clean water a year before the residents of Flint. Because the government employees would wither away leaving no one to line their political pockets.
I understand the importance of a strong economy, but at what point does it just become greed – and at what cost? This parody didn’t need to exaggerate the GOP’s party platform to make its satirical point.
