An official of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is no longer working there after taking his vengeance against the “non-green” people of America to a new level symbolic of the Romans’ vengeance against Christ prior to his crucifixion. Al Armendariz recently resigned after saying that the EPA should “crucify” polluters.
Armendariz was the administrator for the EPA’s Region 6 in Dallas and made these comments several years ago, but after they recently circulated in a 2010 video, Armendariz had no choice but to resign because they recently have been distracting from the work of the EPA.
“I regret comments I made several years ago,” said Armendariz, who oversaw the areas of Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and then 66 tribal nations.
In the video, Armendariz essentially said the EPA could make an example out of people who are not complying with the law, just as the Romans used to do when they conquered Mediterranean villages. Armendariz said the Romans would go into a small Turkish town and “find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them.”
“Then, that little town was really easy to manage for the next few years,” Aramendariz had said.
Outraged Republicans wanted Aramendariz to appear in front of a Senate committee and argued that the former EPA administrator’s comments demonstrated an agenda of U.S. President Barack Obama to stifle the development of gas and oil production efforts by strictly pushing environmental laws. In fact, Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) called Obama’s resistance to oil and energy initiatives a “crucifixion philosophy.”
