Shut it, you long-haired hippie
An “anti-public service” message from Donny Rico

An 'anti-public service' message from Donny Rico

Donny Rico here to deliver a message to all you long-haired hippie activist types complaining about the environment and human rights. Be warned: things have changed in America and you need to keep your mouths shut. Corporations are the top of the food chain and you need to keep your place or you’ll be what’s for dinner. Got it?

See, me and Chevron are paving the way for corporate freedom in America. Freedom from accountability, freedom from watchdog punks and freedom from caring about how our actions affect the rest of yous. When those pesky Ecuadorians spouted off about the fact that Chevron did a piece of work and chose to dump billions of gallons of toxic waste in their rainforest, we decided to turn the tables and it worked like a real charm. Chevron’s tired of being the victim just because over a thousand people died of cancer in Ecuador and we wrecked the Amazon rainforest.

Now, I hear some of you babbos got it in your heads to call on the U.S. Senate to investigate or some such garbage and try to put a stop to this. That ain’t gonna work. But go ahead and try and see what Chevron has to say about you and your 36 environmental, human rights and corporate accountability groups getting involved. You’re just asking for us to label you as “co-conspirators” and sue your asses under RICO, too!

See, RICO ain’t just some law to go after the mob, it’s the wave of the future. Thanks to RICO, anyone, and I DO MEAN ANYONE who speaks up about Chevron’s… ahhh… problems in Ecuador is a “co-conspirator” in the RICO world. That means we can drag yous all to court, subpoena all your emails and documents, and force you to shell out boatloads of cash to lawyers just to defend yourselves. And your reputation? Fuggetaboutit! See we got enough cash to crush your reputations. We’ll just call all your friends and tell ‘em you’re extortionists. You guys already gotta ask people for money just to stay afloat, so who’s gonna give it to ya if we make you look like crooks?

So be smart. Keep quiet and let Chevron do its thing. Oh, and that goes for all of yous activist types and do-good lawyers. If you think big energy companies are gonna let you organize people who got a beef with fracking and new pipelines – think again. We got enough legal muscle and friendly judges out there to go after anyone who does anything to threaten our bottom line. So if you go tellin’ people not to buy our products and instead get some organic-vegan-cotton throw pillow or some such tree-hugging junk, well then you’re conspiring to cost us money. And THAT is a RICO crime, got it?

If you still don’t get the message, watch my little video and you’ll learn real fast. See, this ain’t gonna end with Chevron. Once we get away with charging our own victims in Ecuador as crooks, there’s no limit to who we can go after. Freedom of speech don’t mean you can say things we don’t like – you’ve been warned.

Donny Rico, out!
