The past actions and statements of Joe Biden‘s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) are coming back to haunt her.
Tracy Stone-Manning, Biden’s Bureau of Land Management nominee, apparently argued in her graduate thesis that the American people need to engage in population control to protect the environment.
Stone-Manning has already been portrayed as a controversial nominee thanks to her connection to a “tree spiking incident – an ecoterrorism tactic – in Idaho in the 1980s, where she traded her court testimony for legal immunity,” according to reporting by Fox News.
Fox News also notes:
“In 1993, Stone-Manning was granted immunity in exchange for her testimony that she retyped and sent an anonymous letter to the U.S. Forest Service on behalf of John P. Blount, her former roommate and friend, Fox News previously reported.
The letter told the Forest Service that 500 pounds of ‘spikes measuring 8 to 10 inches in length’ had been jammed into the trees of an Idaho forest. ‘P.S., You bastards go in there anyway and a lot of people could get hurt,’ the note concluded.”
Republicans immediately called her out about her past, considering the fact that, in her testimony, she told senators that she had never been the target of an investigation.
“It’s clear that Ms. Stone-Manning was intentionally trying to deceive the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources,” the committee’s ranking member, Republican Sen. John Barrasso, said last week. “She told the committee she had never been the subject of an investigation and yet complained about being investigated in the press.”
“President Biden should withdraw her nomination,” Barrasso added.
Now that her graduate thesis has been uncovered, we now know the true extent of her radicalism.
“The origin of our abuses is us. If there were fewer of us, we would have less impact,” states the thesis, which was first flagged by the Daily Caller on June 24. “We must consume less, and more importantly, we must breed fewer consuming humans.”
For her thesis, Stone-Manning created eight advertisements which focus on issues like overgrazing, overpopulation, the lumber industry, and a mining law from the late 1800s.
One of the disturbing advertisements refers to a human child as an “environmental hazard,” and tells Americans to have only two children.
“The earth is only so big, and we can tap into it only so often. In America, we tap in often and hard,” the radical ad reads. “When we overpopulate, the earth notices it more. Stop at two. It could be the best thing you do for the planet.”
Stone-Manning repeated the same radical ideas in a television advertisement script she wrote for her thesis, setting the scene at a “Yuppie” home featuring a woman contemplating having a third child.
“I know it would be my third baby, but there’s not a population problem here like in Africa or India…,” the woman says in the script. “And besides, smart people like Bob and me should be the people having kids.”
The disturbing script then calls for a “montage” of video clips depicting pollution while telling viewers to “do the truly smart thing” and “stop at one or two kids.”
“The point is a simple one,” Stone-Manning wrote about the ads in her thesis. “Harshly, the ads say that the earth can’t afford Americans. More softly, they ask people to think about how their family planning choices affect the planet.”
The deranged leftist’s thesis also claims that cattle grazing on public lands is “destroying the West.”
This is especially disturbing, considering that, if confirmed, Stone-Manning would be overseeing an agency that, according to the Bureau of Land Management website, “manages livestock grazing on 155 million acres” of public lands.
