Move over ANTIFA, the latest group of radical nihilists disrupting our daily lives in the hopes of plunging us all back into the Dark Ages is Extinction Rebellion.

Greta Thunberg often wears their symbols while issuing demands that we curtail individual freedoms and end industrial civilization.  Beware the grownup crazies working to scare kids like Greta silly.  They are dangerous.

Among their ridiculous and poverty-inducing demands is a call for net zero CO2 emissions by 2025.

Brendan O’Neill posted a stirring wake up call at Spiked that Marc Morano featured at Climate Depot:

Let us no longer beat around the bush about these people. This is an upper-middle-class death cult.

This is a millenarian movement that might speak of science, but which is driven by sheer irrationalism. By fear, moral exhaustion and misanthropy. This is the deflated, self-loathing bourgeoisie coming together to project their own psycho-social hang-ups on to society at large. They must be criticized and ridiculed out of existence…

Death cult rising 1The group is asking people in London and other cities around the world to ‘take two weeks off work’ and join the revolt against the ‘climate and ecological crisis’. You can tell who they’re trying to appeal to. Working-class people and the poor of New Delhi, Mumbai and Cape Town – some of the cities in which Extinction Rebellion will be causing disruption – of course cannot afford to take two weeks off work. But then, these protests aren’t for those people. In fact, they’re against those people.

Piers Morgan took Skeena Rathor, one of Extinction Rebellions founders, to task for “hypocrisy,” noting that she came to his interview in the studio’s chauffeured car and her followers took breaks from their protests to eat in London’s fast food restaurants.

“The truth is in your own life, with your own kids that you profess to be so concerned about, they all have computers, televisions, air conditioning.

“They have cars that drive them around. You don’t practise what you preach”…

They sneak off to McDonald’s, they have diesel-powered generators, they all get their cars around…they all basically lead completely hypocritical lives.

“If you genuinely believe the planet is about to end, start with your own carbon footprint. Otherwise you become the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of this debate which is you do one thing and say another”.

O’Neill and Morgan have got Extinction Rebellion’s number.  So must we all.

Check out this footage of Extinction Rebellion trying to hide their diesel generator behind wooden pallets at their camp in Berlin as its happy little motor whirring sound gives them away.

The suffering that would result if we actually adopted Extinction Rebellion’s demands and ended all use of oil, gas and coal in the next six years is incalculable.

We need to call out politicians and media who, as Brendan O’Neill so aptly put it:

Will cheer this eco-death cult when it demands a virtual halt to economic growth with not a single thought for the devastating, immiserating and outright lethal impact such a course of action would have on the working and struggling peoples of the world.

Just when you think the unhinged eco-Left couldn’t get any worse, along comes Extinction Rebellion.

What’s next and how do we restore sanity?
