The movie Greedy Lying Bastards — directed by eco-terrorist Craig Scott Rosebraugh— cost a reported $2 million to make … and is bombing at the box office, raking in just $45,000 in the opening weekend. Nevertheless, it’s important to counter the lies in that film, and this page is the clearinghouse for the debunking.
REVIEWS OF GREEDY LYING BASTARDS
“I feel sorry for the global-warming alarmists: Their latest documentary is called ‘Greedy Lying Bastards.’ What’s next, Big Oil Is Full of Meanies?’ ”
“We have arrived at a point in our history where our “mainstream” media cheer on a criminal who openly works for the destruction of our country, while demonizing the creative and hard-working people who produce the energy that allows us to heat our homes, power up our laptops and drive our cars.”
“To be truly effective in reaching the otherwise disinterested public and prompting action from them, nobody must question the assertions and insinuations within the film. Start asking questions about the following points, and the movie’s effectiveness begins to crumble.”
"Pathetic and desperate. There’s no other way to describe the new “we hate-industry” movie, Greedy Lying Bastards."
“Rosebraugh is shameless in using guilt by association. He tries to give the impression that global warming ‘deniers’ tend to be American knuckledraggers, ignoring sane, smart people around the world who doubt the global warming hysteria.”
“When they lie right on the cover, it speaks volumes about the content of the film.”
“Only a handful of people showed up to a screening of Greedy Lying Bastards—Craig Rosebraugh’s documentary that aims to expose the global warming denialist-industrial complex—at an Alexandria, Va., theater on Saturday. And none of them seemed to notice one of the documentary’s star villains seated in the audience.”
BACKGROUND ON CRAIG SCOTT ROSEBRAUGH
A quote from Burning Rage of a Dying Planet: Speaking for The Earth Liberation Front: “In reference of the legitimacy of political violence, often times, in the minds of those arguing for and/or committing the acts themselves, there is a belief that the decision to resort to violence comes from sound reasoning. Additionally, political violence has a long documented history globally, as a practice which has and continues to play a role in political activity. For these reasons alone, it is safe to proclaim there is a legitimacy to political violence.”
