WATCH: Extinction Rebellion Activists DANCE Their Way To A Carbon-Free Future

Written by K. Walker on October 10, 2019

These are the people that we are told to take seriously because they take the fate of humanity seriously. Are you sure about that?

An extremist climate activist movement, Extinction Rebellion, has mobilized protesters all over the world this week to demand that governments take immediate action on climate change.

They’re sorry that they’re blocking traffic, making you late for work and allowing your car to sit there idling for hours while they protest.

It’s because they’re terrified for the future. Besides, they’re really looking out for you and your children and grandchildren.

They’re so serious, you guys.

They’ve written songs:

They’re doing yoga:

(Is someone going to tell them that their mats are made of PVC?)

They even have training sessions for their protesters.

It might look like serious activism from that training video, but reality shows a different story.

It’s a giant party for the whole family! There’s music, free food, it’s like a big block party!

They take the dancing thing very seriously.

In the Netherlands, there was no problem “culturally appropriating” the Tango for climate activism.

Circle dancing is apparently a thing…

There’s also interpretive dance… (I couldn’t resist embedding this one because of Lauren Chen’s comment!)

And “street theatre” like this pack of weirdness:

Genius.

Oh, wait it’s England.

Bloody genius.

Protesters are supergluing themselves to the streets. (Check out the woman on the right who is trying to take her backpack off after gluing her left hand to the road.)

Just like Justin Trudeau, Extinction Rebellion activists love their costumes.

In Dublin, they dressed as trees.

In Australia, they’re kangaroos.

Or bees.

And all over the world, they have these weird Handmaid’s Tale meets Star Trek costumes.

 

Sometimes they combine the costumes with their songs like Soya the Cow.

They’re cool with using children to push their agenda…

…the younger the better.

What a circus.

Oh, that reminds me…

But remember, it’s all orchestrated… and rather poorly.

Kind of like this flashmob:

Last week the Extinction Rebellion activists tried to paint the British Treasury with “fake blood” but they lost control of the hose and ended up making a huge mess on the street.

I’m sure that the fire truck that they’re using is completely eco-friendly, right? Otherwise, it would just be hypocritical.

Speaking of hypocritical…

Is it just me or does this look like a nutty, sad climate alarmist death cult that admits that its goal is to take down capitalism?

Meanwhile, in the real world, people are being harmed by their “action”.

Blocking roads in order to protest the minuscule possibility of an increase in global temperature of just 1.5 degrees Celsius in 100 years is horrible behavior.

It’s one thing to protest, but quite another to block access to a hospital.

And the authorities let them continue without intervening.

This is the world we live in now.

God help us.
