Green thugs on the rampage

Guido Fawkes is reporting that anti-fracking campaigners have vandalised the constituency office of Conservative MP Charlotte Leslie in Bristol.

Ecofascism indeed.

I am sure they have been part financed, with the savings in the cost of petrol, for driving to these organised events, to demonstrate local opposition.

It was Mussolini who perfected the use of strong-arm tactics to frighten and silence opposition at the turn of the 20th Century. Lenin wrote letters of admiration, and Stalin was also a fan. They'd all be proud of the actions of this load of crypto-fascists.

"Putin's meddling in Europe is not limited to Greece
The Russian leader is stirring up trouble wherever he can"

I am sure Putin is very proud of his anti-fracking minions. Brainless idiots who will do his bidding and damage the UK economy.

These people really are a charming bunch, aren't they? Their tactics are deplorable. I have to say I hold these creatures in the same vane as animal liberators & rights merchants in that the Greens are all the same through & through. This is because, like the case of grave robbing indulged by ALR activists, the alleged mainstream claimed they knew not who was responsible! However, it is the old somebody, somewhere, knows something. It is the same here, & whilst some greens will claim ignorance of the perpetrators, they will know somebody, somewhere, who does! As said, somebody is going to be seriously hurt before too long in the name of Gaia, (other than the American example cited the other day by fellow commenter!) here in the UK.

Bristol seems quite a centre for this sort of thing.

The crusty types have always had a fondness for the South West. Ironically, I think it's partly due to the mildness of the climate. And it's close to the magic-mushroom regions of Wales.

Bristol does seem to have a track record for activist nastiness and a few well known crusty / unhinged souls find the west country a safe place to hide out. Animal rights folk did try ( with the connivance of agent provocateurs ) to blow up researcher's cars in the 90s. These dimwits are so narrow minded and twisted that they are extremely easily led.

The reality is that prominent individuals within the green blob are fully aware of these activities and the names of those who are committing these crimes, as are the green-leaning politicians within the main parties, including Labour, Lib-dems and the Tories. For example, Huw Norfolk, an associate of Emma Sheppard who was responsible for the attacks on police cars in Bristol, has been on the run since 2011 - you can't do that without some serious influential help.

They vandalise because they have no rational argument. That is as complicated as it gets.

Jan 29, 2015 at 8:17 PM | Unregistered CommenterSteve Jones

I've always found people who live in the South West to be extremely friendly and peaceable folk.

The number of people who would know of this foul green-facist graffiti by walking past it in before it is cleaned off - pehaps a few hundred. Once given immortality on the Internet? - millions. Barbara Streisand effect.

Do not feed the troll, do not give publicity to our enemies warped "press releases". That is what the mass media did when they aired the Paris Jewish bakery Malian IS terrorists pre-death video. Why help them spread terror? The media do their work for them.

The media are an unguided missile, aimed at themselves hoping to increase viewership by repeating the spread of fear.

The misogyny is a particularly nice touch.

Jan 29, 2015 at 8:51 PM | Unregistered Commenterrabbit

Being as it's Bristol it's probably some kind of field experiment by Lew and his stools stooges to work up his next psycho paper.

Jan 29, 2015 at 8:59 PM | Unregistered CommenterHarry Passfield

@London Calling: Sorry but you are talking bollocks. The only way to deal with this shite is to publicly expose them and their extremist dialogue, that is the only way that people will make the effort to report those responsible to the authorities.

MI5?

It is about time these "greens" are recognised for what they are. Terrorists.

Beats me why the Police aren't all over these scumbags?

And this is why donor lists for people who donate to sceptical organisations must be kept secret. Simply the threat to peoples welfare and safety outweighs the lefts need to know who to target!

These ecotards are anti democratic. They don't get their way because they are in a shockingly small minority and so they throw their toys out of the pram and go for direct action. They would do well to remember if they try to emulate Ghandi that his direction action was of a non-violent kind.

Jan 30, 2015 at 12:04 AM | Unregistered CommenterFarleyR

Good point Mailman.
the Bish, SMac etc.. are to be admired for the risks they open themselves up to/take just giving the public another view/take on the "consensus" we are expected to swallow without a choke/gag reaction.

unbeleivers/questioners need UN protection status :-)

ps - just reading "MARK STEYN - AMERICN ALONE - published 2006" - very relevant current events & this post IMO.

Thank God .. sane people are ringing up 5 Live and saying "get fracking you loonies"
I guess like me they were incenced at the RENTA-CROWD SHOW during Question Time mass whininig hysteria, with women almost crying
- "We don't know if it's safe or not so the answer is we shouldn't do it" said some scumbag politician playing to the mob

(The Controversial BBC presenters were apoplectic at the ratitional callers "You wouldn't want it under your house would you !" "Yes I would" said the caller
..... now theyve gone back to the loonies

Add it up Anti-Fracking protestors do more damage than fracking will ever do.
- To humans - the harm is the wounds on police and security due to the protestors fists & boots. Plus the vandalism and intimidation.
- To the environment - the harm is the piles of rubbish & sh*t left at the protestor camps when they all leave to go and sign for their giros.
- To public health - the harm is to the blood pressure of sane rational people who suffer an onslaught of propaganda from the Controversial BBC.

It is funny how it is never adherents of "the Nasty Party" or those "extremists" in UKIP that indulge in such tactics. Even the English Defence League of a better idea of democratic behaviour than the Greens do.

In Charlotte Leslie's boots, I leave the sign exactly as it is, not repair it, and use it as an example of the methods behind green politics.

Jan 30, 2015 at 9:30 AM | Unregistered CommenterCapell

James Verdon is concerned:

I guess he is right to feel more in the firing line than Leslie.
