“What are we Gonna Do?”
“It’s April 21st and everybody knows today is Earth Day
Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday to whoever’s being born
And now I’m trying hard to think of something
meaningful and worthy, kind of earthy
to make everybody ask themselves just…
What are we doing here?
2041, the world is gonna end, I’ve got the message
from a tiny little man who only said that he’d been sent
I’m not a protest singer, I can’t write a song to send a message
but it seems to me that this message needed to be sent…
What are we doing here? I don’t know…What are we gonna do…”
When Dramarama hit the scene in 1991 with their Earth Day awareness song, “What are we Gonna do”, their dancing Gen X fans and MTV addicts alike watched the giggling and blushing singer John Easdale admit his gaffe during a TV interview.
The band clearly didn’t know what they were doing, or did they? Not only are the words of this song somewhat silly but this “Earth Day” thing is really slated for tomorrow…on April 22nd. Not April 21st.
Were they intentionally trying to show the idiocy of this celebration or was it just a futile attempt at promoting it? Not really sure, it could go both ways. It doesn’t change that this was and still is in my estimation the quintessential display of the fumbling and bumbling ignorance going on in America about this alleged important date reminding us to worship the earth.
In the coming hours, as social media pops up its notifications of how Earth Day is trending, you will see a deluge of superficial and self-indulgent posts in the form of memes and reels as we watch the brainwashed masses use Earth Day to capitalize once again on becoming…more relevant. You are being forewarned that you will be prompted at every turn to feel guilty for being alive and for using any modern convenience which will be megaphoned by those who are the guiltiest of the deepest and most impressive carbon foot printing. We all might even be able to watch Gavin Newsom thrust everyone again into a rolling mini dark age for a few hours on Saturday to “save energy”, and nearly blow the west coast fuse whilst the power grid powers back up and extends nearly 50 times more energy to do so. Won’t that be fun? Oh, the irony…and the waste.
So, what is Earth Day really all about? Well, we here at The Plain Truth have covered this subject many times and if you are one of our avid readers, you know that we care mightily about the Truth and even have a wonderful series called, Why We Do What We Do.
Simply put, Earth Day really is communism on full display. It is a form of punishment in which the left loves to inflict upon us. It has roots that go deep, and it is a fine time to know the origins of the woke celebration of the earth on April 22nd.
Here are some great reads The Plain Truth has posted in the past:
The Naked Communism of Earth Day
It is no accident that April 22, Earth Day, is also the birth date of Vladimir Lenin, an acolyte of Karl Marx, the lunatic who invented communism as an alternative to capitalism.
Earth Day is naked communism.
To begin, it substitutes a worship of the Earth, Gaia, for the worship of God, creator of the universe and the instructor of moral behavior for mankind.
The Earth does not demand a moral code of personal behavior. Indeed, the lesson it teaches is “the survival of the fittest “and an indifference to suffering. The “natural events” mankind fears most all involve the potential for significant loss of life and for injury.
The Earth is a beautiful place, but it is utterly merciless. Man has learned to adapt to it and, by adapt, I mean to use its resources to build shelter and protection from it, to plant and harvest crops from it, and to domesticate some of its species while hunting and fishing for others for food.
Earth Day postulates that man is the cause of harm to Earth by virtue of his cities, his highways, his use of its sources of energy, and even the garbage that results from the normal course of maintaining life. Continue Reading>>>>
Earth Day’s Real Leninist History
On April 22, 1970, a trio of radical dreamers rolled out the first Earth Day. Their hope was that the well-planned, nationwide event would effectively assault capitalism, free markets and mankind.
The initial concept was conceived by Sen. Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis. Nelson was Congress’ first environmentalist activist. He was also the mastermind behind those radical public school “teach-ins” that were vogue throughout the ’60s and ’70s. During the teach-ins, mutinous schoolteachers would scrap the day’s assigned curriculum, pressure their students to sit cross-legged on the floor, “rap” about how America was an imperialist nation and converse about why communism really wasn’t such a bad form of government – it just needed to be implemented properly.

Dramarama will perpetually be wrong about the date but once you study about the origins of Earth Day you will be right about what it is all about and you will be standing in the truth. We are a Republic and Americans shouldn’t ever entertain participating in anything relating to communism. But we unfortunately do.
What are we gonna do? Learn the truth about why we do what we do and be good stewards of all that we have been blessed with!
