Enviro propaganda

I am posting a clip of Robert F Kennedy Jr and Glenn Beck. I am posting because I am really irritated with RFK jr's Live Earth speech. If you watch the clip it will show what RFK said and what he called people who don't support his and the Live Earth supporters idea of environmentalism and climate change. It should also be noted that RFK jr is a environmental lawyer. I am also including the definition of fascist,fascism, and treason.

A fascist is someone who upholds fascism.

Fascism is a) A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.
b) A political philosophy or movement based on or advocating such a system of government.
2. Oppressive, dictatorial control.

Treason is a 1. Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.
2. A betrayal of trust or confidence.

As you will see from the clip, at Live Earth RFK jr called people fascist who don't agree with his, and Al Gores, stance on climate change. He also went so far as to say they are guilty of treason! He is a lawyer! He understands the weight he words hold. He used these words to get the young crowd fired up. I sincerely hope the crowd understands the miss use of his words. Fascism and treason are some heavy words and they hold no meaning when it comes to environmentalism.

Also I should note RFK jr, in his speech at Live Earth, said to write Glenn Beck's advertisers and tell them they won't buy their products because they fund Glenn Beck show. I would normally agree with this kind of protest, except for the fact that one of Glenn Becks sponsors is Rennai tankless water heaters, which are EXTREMLY enviro friendly.Glenn Beck also owns a Rennai. Does RFK jr check his facts or is he hoping we don't check his? I am extremely insulted by his verbal carelessness.
