Back in 2011, NBC News published a penetrating article about a little known co-founder of Earth Day named Ira Einhorn. He made a name for himself among environmental groups during the 1960’s and 70’s and was a charismatic individual who nicknamed himself Unicorn since his Jewish-German name translated in English stands for One Horn.
Despite his self-professed pacifism in opposition to the Vietnam War, Einhorn had a dark side. After his girlfriend broke off their relationship after five years, she was never seen again after returning to their Philadelphia apartment to pick up her belongings upon Einhorn’s insisting she do so or they would end up in the street. A little over a year later, Helen “Holly” Maddux’s decomposed, partially mummified body would turn up in Ira Einhorn’s closet after a neighbor downstairs complained to police of a foul stench and reddish-brown substance from an area of his ceiling that was Einhorn’s apartment.
After his arrest, Einhorn fled to four different countries in which he was finally caught in and quickly extradited from France. During his trial he represented himself positing that CIA agents were the ones who murdered his girlfriend and pinned the blame on him. The jury didn’t buy it and Einhorn was convicted of murder and is now spending a life sentence rotting behind bars. Naturally, the environmentalist movement has sought to not only distance themselves from Ira Einhorn but he still maintains that Earth Day was his idea and he helped organize the festivities that took place on April 22, 1970.
Environmentalism is an anti-human philosophy and the groups that are based on it call for the destruction of human life. This ethic has been translated through indirect deaths resulting from environmental policies. The millions, for example, who have died resulting from green groups opposition to using DDT to halt the spread of malaria and bio-technological foods. Ira Einhorn is a model environmentalist for having practiced the very nihilism he preached by murdering his innocent girlfriend and later tried to hide her decomposing body. It is no coincidence either that Earth Day was founded on the same day of Communist leader Vladimir Lenin’s birthday either. Like environmentalism and in the spirit of Ira Einhorn, Communism has committed some of the worst humanitarian crimes in human history and environmentalism is not far behind in meeting or exceeding the death totals of their ideological cousins.
