While I haven't seen them, their scripts appear to have been lifted straight from the recent anti-drug commercials. Perhaps the same agency did the spots. And, they have the same failings. While buying an SUV does increase gasoline usage, so do most other forms of commerce. When Arianna buys her, let's say, Jose Eber Hair Conditioner, she's helping finance the delivery of it to her local store. Which was done by gasoline trucks. The more she buys, the more she ends up supporting terrorism.
Likewise with Amazon, whose books are shipped by UPS's gasoline-powered trucks. The more books you buy from Amazon, the more you support Osama. You monster.
Arianna's website seems to be getting slashdotted. Just remember, the more you visit her site, the more power you consume and the more power you require her servers to consume. Sure, that might come from fairly clean hydroelectic power. But, it might come from burning dirty coal. And, those dams that will have to be built because you're an energy hog will damage ecosystems, and gasoline-powered dumptrucks will be used to build them. Think about that the next time you surf the web, Chester!
Perhaps Arianna should move to a shack in Montana to avoid increasing the nation's gasoline consumption.
Perhaps a better use for Arianna's time would be attempting to encourage cutting off terrorism funding closer to the source.
On another note, this is not really racism. It's just a very blunt and crass assessment of whether the studio thinks they're going to make money on something.
