Greenpeace Eiffel Tower stunt: No charges again. Why?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

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!

And the little bastards managed to slip out of Peru in December 2014 after defacing the World Heritage Site “Hummingbird Icon” on the Nazca Plains in a similar stunt… Apparently some Peruvian judge couldn’t get off the pot fast enough to lay charges at the time…

Ezra, As Billy Howard suggested 3 hr ago, it would be popular if we received live coverage of some elections.
Most Canadians west of Ontario know very little about Atlantic Canada. David Akin of the old Sun News used to explain their thinking while covering elections. (And the CRTC said The Rebel didn’t have enough Canadian Content.) It would be great to see him back again, even part time during elections.
I was quite disappointed at the French Election coverage as there wasn’t any; even though I made a donation , I had to watch it on CTV News Net. Coverage a couple days after the election isn’t that exciting. I still appreciate your expansion efforts.

This reminds me of the movie called “the purge”.. But the rules are different.

The rebel needs to put up a big wall of shame, that lists who all the donors are to the left wing terrist groups.

Billy Howard,

Many of us in Alberta have family that went to BC as Notley Refugees. So I agree that it is important for Rebel to cover. Simply for the fact that if BC goes under, that is the third of the three traditional have provinces gone. Papa Doc was kept in line by these three provinces, once gone Baby Doc has no checks on him. Also, Saskatchewan is doing great as the new have province, but she cannot carry the federation by herself.

Kudos to Mr. Wilson.

green peace are backed by powerful money.I think that is enough to figure out why they get away with their tactics .

Ezra: We appreciate you giving us BCers some of your time to cover our election. It’s a very important vote where the NDP destroyers have a chance to take power. An NDP government in BC would likely have a very negative effect on all of Canada. Kudos to Christopher Wilson for his coverage.
It would have been great if you had arranged a live webcast or a “Rebel Live” event on Election Day, similar to your upcoming event in Toronto. It would have been nice to hear you, Sheila, Christopher and others entertain us with your insights while the election results came in. Just a suggestion.

Regarding the BC election:

It could prove interesting if the natural split between the interior and the Island/Lower Mainland comes to the fore politically. The Eastern Kootenies and The Peace Country have at various times considered separating from BC. A regressive win might make that a fact, joined by the West Kootenies and Shushwap.

An eleventh province in the making.

Please fix your comment section. I cannot tell you how many comments I’ve had that simply disappeared before I had a chance to post. It happened again tonight & I’m not going back to repost again. Supported you from the start & will continue to do so but this needs to be fixed.

Regarding the cowards of Greenpeace:

1. As an Albertan, I remember the attack they did on Ralph’s personal house when Mrs. Klein was home alone and, obviously, scared. Charges? I seem to remember that Greenpuce pulled the right to protest card, same as they did when they scared the hell out of Christy Clarke’s kid at Clarke’s personal residence.

2. It has always struck me as strange, as Mr. Levant also alludes, that these structures with high security have their security breached by Greenpuce. Infiltration in my mind, which goes with foreign, terrorist ot organized crime intelligence…also alluded to.

3. Greenpuce tried a stunt in Russia. Putin dealt with them as criminals. Greenpuce no longer tries stunts in Russia, nor criticize Russia. Come to think of it, Greenpuce never pulls stunts in China either.

Re: Alberta NDP

If anyone was an adult in Alberta way back to the late 70s and early 80s you will remember on a personal level what PET did to Alberta. As a result of PET the Liberals never got any more than three or so seats in Alberta, neither provincially nor federally, and probably never will.

With Notley and the NDP, their destruction is a far most personal attack on individual Albertans that even PET.

The NDP will be gone next election and will never get back into office for at least several decades if ever again.

Albertans have a long memory.
