Classy: Lefty eco-zealots mount ‘Exxon Hates Your Children’ campaign
Exxon hates your children — that's why they're dooming living and future generations to a world torn apart by climate chaos.

The groups are currently raising money to get the campaign on national television.
Eco-zealots are lapping it up:

Actually, that’s not really fair. Exxon doesn’t hate your children, they just don’t give a shit about them, or anything but their profits.

For a group so hell-bent on clean energy, it sure loves dirty politics.
Exxon has responded to the ad:
“The campaign is offensive to the thousands of ExxonMobil employees and contractors who work hard every day to deliver an essential product in a safe and environmentally responsible way,” the company said in a statement Wednesday.
“Energy use and climate change are critically important challenges facing society that won’t be resolved with media campaigns that rely on provocative language and false allegations,” Exxon said.
