Environmentalists tell Twitter Followers to Slash Tires of SUVs in ‘Wealthy Areas’

Published

So-called climate activists are using social media to rally “ground warriors” to go around slashing SUV tires. In a string of tweets, @Adbusters posted “Time to do something about SUVs. They’re the 2nd-largest contributor to the increase in global CO2 emissions since 2010, more than aviation.”

Alongside a black and white photograph of a tire and SUVs, the post added, “this is a gentle escalation of methods to drive the urgency of this climate crisis home and engender a systemic aversion to SUVs.”

The graphic is a three-step guidance titled “The SUV flat tire challenge.” Step 1 is “wedge a piece of gravel in the tire valve.” Step 2 is “slap a leaflet on the dash to let them know” ad finally, “3rd step: walk away.”

A second tweet gave further explanation: “So here’s what we do: wedge gravel in the tire valves, leaflet the SUV to let them know the tires are flat and why I was done, and walk away. It’s that simple. If we organize, we can hit enough SUVs in particular neighborhoods to spark reporting and spread the metameme.”

Further details in the thread of tweets include stating “climate change is the biggest crisis we’ve faced as a species, and we are failing the test at every step” and “a flat tire is non-violent. There is no property damage. But it is a huge pain in the ass.”

They also claim this method has been successful in Sweden and the UK, and that it’s “time to go global.” The group suggests its followers “start by targeting wealthy areas – our goal isn’t to disrupt workers – and avoid targeting vehicles with disabled stickers or hangers.”

“Targeting SUVs is a good way to hit the automotive industry where it hurts. SU sales are playing a massive role in the expansion of the auto industry, both as a percentage of global market share and in total numbers” the tweets continue.

Florida Gov Signs Law Making It Illegal To Protest Outside An Individual’s Home

Published

Ron DeSantis

On Monday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill that makes it a crime to protest outside an individual’s home.

“Sending unruly mobs to private residences, like we have seen with the angry crowds in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices, is inappropriate,” DeSantis said. “This bill will provide protection to those living in residential communities and I am glad to sign it into law.”

The law will go into effect on October 1, and once “this law takes effect, law enforcement officers will provide a warning to any person picketing or protesting outside of a dwelling and will make arrests for residential picketing only if the person does not peaceably disperse after the warning. Residential picketing will be punishable as a second-degree misdemeanor,” DeSantis’ office explained.

“It is unlawful for a person to picket or protest before or about the dwelling of any person with the intent to harass or disturb that person in his or her dwelling,” the text of the bill says. “Before a person may be arrested for a violation of this section, a law enforcement officer… or a local, state, federal, or military law enforcement agency must go as near to the person as may be done with safety and shall command any person picketing or protesting before or about the dwelling of a person to immediately and peaceably disperse. If any such person does not thereupon immediately and peaceably disperse, he or she may be arrested for a violation of this section.”

The new law comes in response to leftist protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices following the leak of a draft of a Supreme Court majority opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked to Politico.

“Roughly 100 protesters appeared outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house, where they carried signs and chanted slogans before walking a half-mile to Chief Justice John Roberts’s home, then back to Kavanaugh’s home, where police ordered them to leave the area,” The Washington Examiner reported last week.

Pelosi Snaps When Asked About Baby Formula Shortage

Nancy Pelosi

On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) snapped when asked about comments from Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who criticized President Biden’s decision to send baby formula to the southern border as the United States suffers from a baby formula shortage.

“Joe Biden continues to put America LAST by shipping pallets of baby formula to the southern border as American families face empty shelves,” Stefanik wrote on Twitter. “This is unacceptable. American mothers and their babies shouldn’t suffer because of the #BidenBorderCrisis.”

Pelosi was asked about Stefanik’s comments during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”

“As usual, her statement is totally irresponsible,” Pelosi said. “Babies are crying. We need to get them food. And the president has — now what we’re doing this week in the Congress is, again, Bobby Scott, chair of the Education and Labor Committee, that’s the jurisdiction that will lower some of the regulations, et cetera, so that it’s easier to buy it… We must do something as quickly as possible, but as safely as possible, and use caution, for these babies. But we have to move quickly to do that. And part of this is, again, the supply chain issue.”

Stefanik responded to Pelosi on Twitter, writing: “As usual, your LEADERSHIP is totally irresponsible. Babies are crying. We need to get them food.”
