Extinction Rebellion Plots New Stunts, Including Public Suicide

Some take offense when Skeptics, including myself, refer to the Cult of Climastrology as a cult, as doomsdayers, as unhinged nutjobs. I can’t imagine why we would refer to them that way

Delingpole: Kamikaze Greenies – Extinction Rebellion Plots Suicide Stunt

Extinction Rebellion (XR) activists, increasingly overshadowed by the coronavirus, have been discussing new and ever more desperate ways to grab attention for their next big publicity stunt.

Mooted tactics include: committing suicide in public (perhaps at the UN’s next climate summit in Glasgow later this year); hunger strike to the death; painting parliament green; spraying traffic lights black; blocking every station, airport, and motorway in Britain; and “scare the fuck out of people”.

These are among the actions proposed on a leaked XR discussion document titled ‘Vital Additions to Action Strategy.’ They appear in a list under the heading ‘Top Ideas from the Sessions.’

The radical ideas seem to be a response to concerns within XR that the public have grown slightly bored with or even irritated by their antics.

Go figure. So far, no one has volunteered to be the sacrificial snowflake, but

What’s clear, though, is that there are elements within Extinction Rebellion who think that suicide and similar “highly sacrificial actions” are just what the cause needs.

In addition, as the Climate and Ecological Emergency becomes more dangerous every day, we must encourage more extreme actions to achieve meaningful change. This movement must not become ineffectual and forget its rebellious heart as it grows. Extreme self sacrificial actions can act as a vanguard for the movement, inspiring people in their rebellious journey and focusing the world’s attention. However, these highly sacrificial actions have suffered so far due to their lack of organisation / cohesion of message and because of strong pushback from the movement. For such high-risk actions, action design must be slick and highly considered. It also seems necessary for the movement to clearly outline in any strategy going forward, the intention to encourage more extreme action in response to genuine growing crisis so as not to face pushback from the movement as a whole every time a highly sacrificial action takes place.

Sounds totally rational, right?

    Suicide? From Ex.Stink.shun Rebellion?

    CAPITAL IDEA! BULLY!

    Not good enough. Won’t attract enough attention or last long enough. The way for them to do this is call a “Day of Action” say Saturday June 6. At noon they should participate in a mass suicide across the globe. As many cultists as they can muster should kill themselves for the cause. Like Heaven’s Gate clowns did for the Hale-Bopp comet.

    If they don’t reach at least 10,000 sacrifices globally they are not committed. Traditionally cults sacrifice humans this should be no exception. At least these fools want to kill themselves unlike the cult of democratic socialism and communism which has murdered millions of innocents.

    Trump 2020 Encourage the left to self-sacrifice.

    Speaking of zealots…

    Richard Spencer has called Russia the “sole white power” in the world…

    White nationalist Matthew Heimbach, who said he identifies as a member of the alt-right, has praised Putin’s Russia as “the axis for nationalists.”
    “I really believe that Russia is the leader of the free world right now,” Heimbach told Business Insider in a recent interview. “Putin is supporting nationalists around the world and building an anti-globalist alliance, while promoting traditional values and self-determination.”
    Heimbach described the US’ current foreign policy as aggressive and imperialistic, and he criticized NATO’s military buildup in eastern Europe as an example of how the US is trying to promote a “global conflict” with Russia.

    Like Heimbach, alt-right leader Richard Spencer — the head of the white nationalist think tank the National Policy Institute — has argued that the US should dispense with its globalist policies by pulling out of NATO, resetting its relationship with Russia, and courting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whom he has described as “a civilized person” and “source of stability in this chaotic world.”

    Spencer’s ties to Russia, which he has called the “sole white power in the world,” go deeper. He was married until October to Russian writer and self-proclaimed “Kremlin troll leader” Nina Kouprianova, whose writing under the pen name Nina Byzantina regularly aligns with Kremlin talking points.

    Russia is supporting the US radical right

    Russia’s troll army was not interested in stirring up generic ‘chaos’ in America. The Kremlin is strategically tapping into the inexhaustible fuel source of white grievance.

    While America’s right-wing zealots live Kye and formwiz call every liberal a “communist”, they snuggle in bed with Putin and Russia.

    DumpTrump 2020: Keep America American!

    • Kye says:

      No we don’t you commie shit. We support Freedom. Freedom FROM communism, tyranny and racism. Whatever these racist clowns want is NOT what we as American conservatives want. You on the other hand are a carbon copy of every socialist and communist tyranny that ever existed. Trying to pin crazy assholes WHO ARE NOT AMERICAN on us won’t fly.

      BTW, we don’t “call every liberal a communist” as I’ve explained before , once again upon deaf ears. Liberals and NOT communists, leftists like YOU ARE. Conservatives are NOT racists. White supremacists like Spencer ARE. It’s not hard Elwood, just don’t lie to make a point.

      Trump 2020 Throw the commies out. You know who you are!

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Kye,

        The only freedom you support is the freedom to rule. Actually, white supremacists consider themselves to be the apex Americans.

        But make a valid point. Not all conservatives are racists, but some, like Spencer, are. And you have to admit the Putin is a tyrant. Not all conservatives are Putin ass-kissers like Trump, but many are (and they are because Trump is). The Russians support Trump for a reason. The Russians support white nationalism in America for a reason.

        BTW, not all those concerned about global warming are cultists, doomsdayers, or unhinged nutjobs, even though that’s what TEACH types daily.

        A few are, just as some conservatives are white nationalists. See what we did there?

        • formwiz says:

          <i.The only freedom you support is the freedom to rule. Actually, white supremacists consider themselves to be the apex Americans.

          Then why do you morons keep telling us how dumb we are and why do you keep pushing idiot schemes on us that haven’t worked anywhere else in the world?

          But make a valid point. Not all conservatives are racists, but some, like Spencer, are. And you have to admit the Putin is a tyrant. Not all conservatives are Putin ass-kissers like Trump, but many are (and they are because Trump is). The Russians support Trump for a reason. The Russians support white nationalism in America for a reason.

          First you have to prove Russia supports white nationalism in America, which is kind of hard since since the collusion thing collapsed like the house of cards it was last year.

          BTW, not all those concerned about global warming are cultists, doomsdayers, or unhinged nutjobs, even though that’s what TEACH types daily

          They’re all those things and Lefty apparatchiks, too.

          A few are, just as some conservatives are white nationalists. See what we did there?

          No, but I’m sure you’ll tell us in your next exciting episode.

      Now, if you only had proof of that assertion. But I forgot, you never do …

  4. John says:

    Dow just opened 2250 points down trading shut down
    Trump has officially crashed Wall Street

    • alanstorm says:

      You misspelled “the media”. They’ve been hoping to crash the economy (because Trump), now they’ve found a lever.

      I don’t think it will help them much in the long run, but they’re trying.

    • Jl says:

      No, John, that would be the public in a panic selling mode that did that. But thanks for another idiotic fact-free comment.

    • Kye says:

      John, are you saying the panic and hysteria caused by the media hoax worked? Well good for you commies, you torpedoed our economy based on lies!

    • formwiz says:

      No, that’s idiot Democrat governors trying to seize as much power as they can.

      And the markets have gained half that back already.

  5. Dana says:

    Hunger striking to death? That takes around forty days of suffering, so let’s see them show that commitment!

    Suicide in public? Remember the Buddhist monks who self-immolated in the streets in Vietnam? Let’s see if any of them have the balls to do that!

  6. alanstorm says:

    “tactics include: committing suicide in public; hunger strike to the death”
    Go for it, guys. Lead the way.

  7. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    People are panicking about the stock market, but your $1000 investment in Jan 2017 would be worth $1050 today (minus any fees)! But stay tuned, it could be worth less soon.

    The Wall Street ‘casino’ is not for the faint of heart, but it is NOT the economy, but is a representation of investors confidence in the economy.

    The Fed cut the rate to around 0%, injected $1.5 trillion into the ‘repo’ market, plans more ‘quantitative easing’, and is buying $700 billion in Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities.

    • formwiz says:

      No, there’s selling because government apparatchiks like Dr Fauci want the country to shut down for 2 weeks and a lot of Democrat governors are trying to do that by seizing as much power as they can.

      The sell off has more to do with protecting investments.

      BTW a lot of that has already been won back. Markets up 1000.

      Sorry to disappoint you. You had your heart set on another Depression, just like Zippy made, didn’t you?

      The Wall Street ‘casino’ is not for the faint of heart, but it is NOT the economy, but is a representation of investors confidence in the economy.

      Hardly a casino. When the Left isn’t trying to crash it, it’s more reliable than Social Security.

      And it has less to do with confidence than speculation.

      You don’t know much about economics, either, do you?

      The Fed cut the rate to around 0%, injected $1.5 trillion into the ‘repo’ market, plans more ‘quantitative easing’, and is buying $700 billion in Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities.

      And Jerome Powell is an idiot.

      Tell the world something we don’t know.
