Greenpeace "Activists" do $300 000 Damage to Crops

Posted on Wednesday, August 24, 2011 at 9:39 PM by Richard Schitts

Two Greenpeace extremists destroyed $300,000 worth of genetically modified wheat in Australia. They managed to completely destroy a genetically modified wheat trial design to increase wheat yields and decrease susceptibility to drought.

Greenpeace Activist?

A Greenpeace Activist at work?

Good job GP. You have successfully taken another step away from progress and towards your goal of massive food shortages during droughts. GP believes in global warming, so why would it be opposed to another precaution taken against it? Better drought tolerance in food = more food if it gets hotter.

But wait! There's more:

The research GP destroyed was funded by Australian taxpayers:

  • "Taxpayers should not fund the destruction of taxpayers’ property."
  • "If Greenpeace is found to be implicated in the destruction of scientific research, then they should no longer receive the benefit of a tax deduction from the Australian people."
  • "However, Greenpeace spokesperson, James Lorenz, said it was disappointing the Nationals Senator’s first priority was persecution rather than protection."

GP's response is ludicrous : "...disappoint[ed] the Nationals Senator’s first priority was persecution rather than protection" How do they not realize that the senator's first priority IS protection.... OF THE TAX PAYERS! Why would he ever protect a bunch of extremists destroying scientific research that has the potential to save lives!

The bottom line is:

If you disagree with a democratically elected government's plan, so you destroy it you aren't an activist, you're a terrorist.

GP Hippies - Even Canada's Tired of Them

Posted on Wednesday, August 24, 2011 at 9:39 PM by Richard Schitts

GP Hippies hung some banner on the CN tower in Calgary. The good news is that Canada charged them, fining them each $2,300 and leaving them with a criminal record. Then the story takes a predicable turn....

 

Hippy court attire. Jeans and hiking boots.

The Greenpeace activists claim they were abused by the Canadian police while in custody at the Calgary Remand Center. They are even going to file a complaint.

".... the allegations included threats of rape and of beatings... threatened with attack from guard dogs.... threatened by corrections officers with having their bones broken".

Holy crap! The Canadian police at the Calgary Remand center sound like total badasses, Eh? They must really have it out for white middle class non felony committing citizens. Either that or Greenpeace is just looking for more media attention. If that is the case maybe they should be "double charged". Come to think of it the Calgary police force doesn't use "guard dogs" but they do have drug sniffing dogs. Maybe they had been... indulging?

The banner they hung said "Separate oil and State". They must have been mistaking Canada for China, Iran, Venezuela, Russia or some other dictatorship. Canada's oil is controlled by public companies. The Canadian government's main roll in the oil sands is to regulate the whole ordeal. Are they saying that the Canadian government should just let oil companies do what they like? The more you think about the GP's message the less it makes sense. Maybe smoking some herb would help.

Above Picture: Thibault Rehn, 29, and Isabelle Charlebois, 25, of Montreal, Jeffrey Harrison, 22, of Vancouver, Adela Sculean, 26, Zane Lewis, 36, and Steven Anderson, 30, all of Edmonton; and Tom Verheaghe, 27, of Belgium were found guilty.
