Unhinged Climate Group Slashing Tires Reported To Be In 18 Countries

First, this is a great way to get shot. Second, wouldn’t this be considered an international crime syndicate per U.S. federal law?

Radical climate group slashing SUV tires says they’re now active in 18 countries including US

A far-left international group that encourages groups of people to deflate tires on parked sports utility vehicles (SUV) in an effort to combat global warming has expanded its operations to 18 countries.

The group, named the Tyre Extinguishers and based in the U.K., has claimed credit for tire-deflating operations in American cities including New York City, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco, and cities in England, Canada, France, Spain, Germany and Italy among others. And most recently, on Thursday, members affiliated with the Tyre Extinguishers conducted an action in Lisbon, Portugal.

“Reports coming in of very angry #CarShaggers who are upset they can’t drive their massive tanks around Lisbon. Oh no!” the group said. “Welcome to the fun, Portugal! Now that we’ve had our first action in Lisbon, where’s next?”

On the group’s website, it provides instructions for quickly deflating tires on parked cars and a template for pamphlets that activists can use during operations. After deflating an SUV’s tires, individuals affiliated with the group generally leave the document, with a headline stating “ATTENTION – your gas guzzler kills,” on the vehicle’s windshield explaining to its owner why the action was taken.

“You’ll be angry, but don’t take it personally. It’s not you, it’s your car,” the pamphlet says. “We did this because driving around in urban areas in your massive vehicle has huge consequences for others.”

Well, don’t take it personally when someone pulls a gun, and, if you’re lucky, all that happens is they hold you till you get arrested. If you’re not lucky? Well, don’t take it personally. Or if someone beats your ass.

Seriously, at this point this group is basically violating RICO. It is a multi-state and multi-national organized crime organization. And many states have their own RICO standards. You can start with extortion. Criminal street gangs. Conspiracy. Malicious mischief. Maybe even terrorism, as they are pushing for political outcomes.

    12 people traveling on their parents’ credit cards is not the same as “operations in 18 countries”.

    All it takes is one guy who doesn’t particularly want his tires slashed and this ends.

    Counterproductive loons. Terrorists should understand that terrorist acts don’t accomplish their goals.

  3. Dana says:

    How do these idiots figure that this will persuade people to see things their way?

  4. Dana says:

    Try this s(tuff) in Philadelphia, and you’ll wind up a statistic.

  5. Woody says:

    They will only pull this in major LIBERAL cities, so as to have a sympathetic jury.

    Teach were you being overly dramatic again ? Are you sure they are “slashing tires” did you bother to actually check to see what they do?
    They are not slashing the tires. They deflate them. The tire is not damaged, it simply needs to be be reinflated.
    Making wild exaggerations is not a good way to make a valid argument
    I am afraid none of the regular posters wanted to risk fact checking Teach.
