Greenpeace broke into the Eiffel Tower and unfurled one of their huge vinyl banners. (I mention that, because vinyl is made from oil and gas. Which they protest...)
Greenpeace also protests against capitalism, of course. Which doesn’t stop them from practising it. On their French website, they promoted their crime, and asked for donations.
To go up the Eiffel Tower, you have to go through airport-style security. But Greenpeace somehow circumvented all that. How?
And why did French authorities let their stunt go on so long?
In Canada, Greenpeace got onto the roof of Parliament. That’s illegal. They’ve done the same thing in the Calgary Tower, and at the Kinder Morgan pipeline terminus in British Columbia.
In the case of Calgary, some activists got slaps on the wrist. But not Greenpeace itself. They just collected money from their donation page.
That’s the Greenpeace business model: commit a crime, ask for a donation.
Greenpeace don’t commit violence, generally. But what about Antifa?
They’re funded too, of course — not through websites, but through left-wing mega-donors.
Only the Antifa street thugs who agree to be used as cannon fodder are ever charged. Not the millionaires running the thing, or the billionaires funding the thing.
They should be. We’ve got to stop this now.
NEXT: Columnist Lorne Gunter and I mark a dubious milestone:
The halfway point in Rachel Notley’s term as NDP premier of Alberta.
What were her biggest mistakes, and why does Lorne say there is "more pain coming" for citizens?
THEN: Our British Columbia Bureau Chief Christopher Wilson joins me. He's been covering that province's election, and as the date gets closer, we talk about the pressing issues, controversies and important personalities.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
