Climate activists have glued themselves to 100 million dollar paintings and encased their feet in concrete to bring attention to their lunacy. Activists also sit in the middle of roads and freeways, illogically concluding that if only they inconvenienced and pissed off thousands of commuters suddenly their message would be received like the word of God and people would hug them, and the climate would turn into a Hallmark movie.
They do these nonsensical and silly acts of civil disobedience exclusively in first-world western nations that are, to some extent, willing to tolerate their silliness. When they glue themselves to paintings the protestors are generally allowed to read their stupid manifesto and then be led away peacefully, and fined accordingly. Then, they get to appear on TV to spout more nonsense.
It’s no coincidence that they don’t try their act in countries that are choking on their own soot. If a dozen climate activists formed a line across Beijing traffic, their next line would be waiting for bread and water at a labor camp. Not that I am condoning that. They should get soup, every other Tuesday.
The pendulum is starting to swing back. Maybe we are on the verge of: “go woke, get your jaw broke”.
Last year four states passed laws tightening the screws on protestors.
In Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed SF342. The law immunizes drivers who injure illegal protestors blocking traffic. In Texas, if you block emergency vehicles with an illegal protest you can get up to 2 years in prison. In Oklahoma, a protestor unlawfully obstructing traffic is guilty of a misdemeanor. Punishment can be up to one year in jail with a $5,000 fine. That could put a dent in your vegan diet.
Florida passed the most strident law in America. The law provided that protesters who “willfully obstruct the free, convenient, and normal use of a public street, highway or road” could have faced up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Unfortunately, the law was struck down by a court as overly broad and too vague. The part about obstructing traffic is pretty clear and may survive appeal. If it doesn’t survive, it can be reintroduced as a separate bill.
Other states have either passed laws or are considering penalties for obstructing traffic. It’s about time. I have never been stuck in traffic because of a climate protest but I know I wouldn’t just sit in my car and applaud. I am surprised more people haven’t gotten out of their cars and throttled the dummies.
Climate jerks stopped traffic in France and pissed-off froggies. Big Frogs. Bullfrogs. One guy took matters into his own hands and a couple of others took the cue and helped. The big guy tossed a couple of protestors into the ditch like they were stale croissants. Below is the video.

This is one war I hope the French can win without America’s help.
In any event, winter is hitting America early and the retreat of Antarctica Ice has reversed and the frozen continent is now adding millions of tons of ice so maybe climate nuts will be out of “jobs” soon, and we won’t have them stopping traffic over things that no one can change.
Nah. I know, I dream.
