"What a repellent bunch of people, with sick, twisted minds"

That from The Anchoress after watching the following video titled No Pressure from a group called 10:10:

They thought this was funny. They thought you might find it funny. 

Can there be any more evidence to support the notion that these people are wired differently?  I mean, a video they're calling No Pressure aimed at applying serious pressure on anyone who disagrees with them.  I can't help but wonder if perhaps they might not consider getting in touch with Osama Bin Laden who could help them make actual snuff films to make their point.  Wouldn't that be funny?  After all, he too is all about the threat that is global warming

These people give ecoterrorism a new name.

GarandFan:

Drop 'em into the middle of the Amazon rain forest and see how much they worship Gaia then. It's all good when you've got your food, clothing and environment taken care of, quite another to have to live off it.

gdb in central Texas:

Some of the comments I've seen have the right idea. For 10:10 (here in central Texas the weather forecast is for a high of 82°- perfect weather for outside) it would be a great day to have a barbeque using lots of brickets using some good ol' Gulf lite and cooking some extra thick steaks. Then that evening light up the tiki-torches and have a backyard party with lots of lights and extra-long extension cords for putting several TVs outside. Oh, yeah. Don't forget the long Sunday afternoon drive.

We could call it - The people's 10:10 - Because we damn well (still) can.

It's amazing how the lefties constantly rail against conservatives and us "violent teabaggers", yet where does all the political violence come from? It is the progressives and socialists who stir up the hate and incite violence amongst their followers.

This might just be a valentine to Bin Laden.

Sound like liberals thinking. If they don't agree with you blow them up. We must be tolerant of others unless they don't agree with liberal ideology then it time to destroy them by any means necessary.

Justrand:

These sick twisted freaks are, well, sick twisted and complete freaks!

And make no mistake...if they HAD the power displayed in the video they would have no problem using it against a human.

Fascism in the name of "enivronmentalism" is still fascism.

Hitler and the Nazis were VERY big environmentalists! FACT.

jim m:

This isn't about the British, it's about the radical environmentalist left.

This is the result of years of Al Gore declaring how AGW 'deniers' are like holocaust deniers. The radical left believes that they are right on this issue and that anyone who disagrees with them actually deserves to be murdered.

This is about normalizing the murder of people who have different political beliefs (ie non-leftist)

Every once in a while the mask slips and the left lets the rest of us see what they really think of us and what they really want to do to us if they get the opportunity.

The only good thing I see is that there are some libs who are not so wacko that they see how scary this is.

Mark W:

I think I'll start to consider what the "celebrities" tell us regarding global warming when they start reforming their own lives by the standards they wish to impose on the rest of us. How many times have we seen the elitists condescend to "teach" the rest of us about all the dangers while flying all over the world? How about moving around in fleets of SUV's after flying anywhere and everywhere in private jets? Why do they hold their UN global warming conferences in exotic vacation locales that require massive carbon emissions to attend?

On another note, nobody should take these people lightly. If there is one thing that we know, the extremists on the left take to violence very easily and with the tacit approval of the leftists in power. Does anyone need to be reminded of the Unabomber, Earth First, or the SEIU? If you don't believe that the left is fully capable of using just the kind of violence represented in that video, you have been ignoring the news for the past 50 years.

These people drive spikes into trees knowing it will kill or injure the loggers. They consider HUMANS a blight on the planet...and are willing to sacrifice anyone, except themselves, for "the cause".

BlueNight:

This, along with the Audi Green Police Super Bowl ad from earlier this year, show the real power liberals want: the ability to punish people without due process. And they have it! Carbon taxing -- I'm sorry, Cap And Trade -- will penalize companies without due process.

David:

If I were working for an eeevill BIG OIL company and wanted to write a spoof that would cast the warmists in the worst possible light, I couldn't do a better job than this. It amazes me that whoever really did put this together thought that it would persuade anybody to cut their "carbon emissions." After watching this I want to take my SUV on a long drive!

Cut 'em some slack. Anyone who hangs out only with other environmentalists would probably draw the same conclusion.

And be right, too.

Jay Guevara:

The thing that strikes me is their certainty. They fantasize about killing people to implement their ideas regarding a "threat" that is ...at best, uncertain, or more likely, complete crap.

Doesn't it trouble them that they are talking about killing people who may be absolutely correct, while they themselves are full of crap?

"Doesn't it trouble them that they are talking about killing people who may be absolutely correct, while they themselves are full of crap?"

As you said they are absolutely certain that they are tight. They won't even engage in discussion about the facts. They hide their ignorance and their fear with their certainty.

Besides, if you are wrong and you kill everyone who was right...you don't have to apologize to anyone.

Seems to work out kind of nice for them.

They can push and cry and whine all they want, a line will be crossed and then pushback will stop the GLO-BALL BS once and for all.

I completely agree with you on this one, Rick. The not-so-underlying message of this video is ridiculously dangerous.

TexBob:

I would pay to see a movie where this happened to college professors and teaching assistants every time they lied or spouted marxist social justice pablum.

Word would get out and suddenly colleges would actually become institutions of learning instead of indoctrination camps.

ryan a:

"I would pay to see a movie where this happened to college professors and teaching assistants every time they lied or spouted marxist social justice pablum."

So, you're saying that you're not really opposed to the basic method of this ad campaign, you just don't disagree with the primary political message? Interesting, Tex.

Also, are you saying that you think colleges can be places of learning only if they teach what caters to your political persuasions? Just wondering if your definition of "learning" is just indoctrination of another type, or if you're arguing that you think colleges should teach about a variety of histories, political perspectives, and ways of looking at the world.

It should. As I see it, I don't care WHO IT IS--once people start talking about, or even joking about, killing people based upon political or ideological positions, it's over. Run from the ideologues at all costs.

John:

These people are plain dangerous, has everyone already forgotten about the envrio idiot that went to the discovery channel. They are so over the top and their followers are so blind that they are capable of doing violence. These folks want a religous war between their "religion" and everyone else.

ryan a:

"These people are plain dangerous, has everyone already forgotten about the envrio idiot that went to the discovery channel."

Anyone who rigidly sticks to a political or ideological position without EVER considering different perspectives can be dangerous. Enviro-nuts like the people who made this video and the Discovery gunman are just one breed of a pretty widespread species.

All of this is Exhibit A for an argument against one-sided politics.

Bing-fucking-o, Ryan A. This was a terribly, terribly bad move, and bound to backfire. The worst part is, they're never going to understand just WHY it's so offense, because it seems perfectly sane and reasonable to them.

Mike G in Corvallis:

This is a wonderful video!

It portrays the hard-core environmentalists -- and by extension, the British government -- as conscienceless murderers, fully capable of lying to the public with a straight face and then casually executing anyone who has even the most trivial objections to their plans. The underlying message is that the bureaucrats pushing 10:10 are a bunch of dangerous, evil sociopathic killers.

What's not to like?

Yep.

'It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent
moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his
cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our
own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.
