“Trust the science” has morphed into “attention-seeking children toss soup on 8o million-dollar painting”. This can happen when a generation is taught that their own culture is worthless, that weather is controlled by light bulbs, and that vandalism is an achievement.
This is end stage absurdity in the climate religion. Their words don’t even make sense:
“Are you more concerned about the protection of a painting or the protection of the planet and our people.” “The cost-of-living crisis is part of the cost of oil crisis. Fuel is unaffordable. To millions of cold hungry families, they can’t even afford to heat a tin of soup…”
Someone needs to explain supply and demand to the people at Just Stop Oil. If fuel is unaffordable the solution is more fuel. Drill for Oil baby, make civilization great again so people can heat up their soup.
I think the main message is: “don’t let anyone in wearing “Just Stop Oil t-shirts”.
Apparently, the painting is covered with glass. To protect our national treasures perhaps it’s time we stopped rewarding vandals with prime-time TV spots. Ten thousand farmers can protest for two months, and they don’t get even 2 seconds of fame, so why should two teenagers with a soup tin get attention unless you want to encourage more people to defile national art?
But then again, the more people who see this protest and think it’s climate activists at work, the better.
Who would look at this think “That’s it. I need an EV”.
Just Stop Oil could be the dumbest science protest movement ever.
It makes more sense if this is actually a placement marketing campaign by Heinz:
Barrons News: Just Stop Oil said in a statement its activists threw two cans of Heinz Tomato soup over the painting to demand the UK government halt all new oil and gas projects.
Just Stop Oil later tweeted: “Keep giving us new oil and gas, and you will keep getting soup.”
And the London Police said, “and we will arrest you”:
London’s Metropolitan Police said officers arrested two protesters from the organisation for criminal damage and aggravated trespass after they “threw a substance” at the painting in the gallery and glued themselves to a wall, just after 11 am (1000 GMT).
Philip Oldham @MrPhilipOldham says: That’s it. I’m going for a pointless drive.
