Turnabout is fair play – Greenpeace gets a dose of their own medicine

Greenpeace, who prides themselves on civil disobedience and bannering smokestacks and U.S. national monument Mt. Rushmore gets a banner or two on the Rainbow Warrior. It is dubbed now the “Propaganda Warrior” and the “Ship of Lies”.

Surely Greenpeace would approve of this homage to their tactics, read the story at CFACT.

Global warming skeptics from CFACT yesterday pulled off an international climate caper using GPS triangulation from Greenpeace’s own on-board camera photos to locate and sail up long-side of the infamous Greenpeace vessel, Rainbow Warrior. Then in Greenpeace-like fashion, the CFACT activists unfurled a banner reading “Propaganda Warrior” which underscored how the radical green group’s policies and agenda are based on myths, lies, and exaggerations.

Here’s another photo:

(Thanks to Andrew Bolt)

BTW, since we are coming up on the one year anniversry of some Greenpeace propaganda, you might want to have a look at this Christmas video of theirs again, featuring the ship seen above.

More Hot Propaganda – this time from Greenpeace

Excellent stuff… Needs to happen more often. Greenpeace is nothing but a company of thieves, liars and cheats.
May sound harsh, but any organization that promises to stop the climate from changing for 5 bucks…. Is scamming you.

Pardon me, but I was once surprised to find that I had been talking l33t before it had a name… so some of us ‘over 30’ were part of the process of starting it… Though, it is worth noting that the present crop of folks have added a lot of new things… BTW, this might help some folks:

Yeah, I know, too much… 50 50rry
BTW, the way you ‘baffle someone with doughnuts’ is that you show up with a delivery of them (large) and ask to be shown to the conference room or cantina… Everyone will follow the doughnuts… then your team enters unopposed. It’s a distraction technique. Works best in the morning. In the evening, a pizza works better. If they say no-on ordered it, you check w/ home and then announce: Dang it, wrong delivery. Well, they are sending a fresh pie to {foo}, so you guys might as well have these on the house: Where’s the conference room?
Boarding under ‘false colors’ as it were…

———————-
By any definition, they are indeed a “soft” terror organisation. This is one of the reasons why the founder no longer has anything to do with them and why he is happy to be interviewed arguing against CO2 being the evil that it is portrayed as.
I agree with him, that there are many serious looming and real environmental disasters in this world, which require urgent and serious action, but CO2 ain’t one of them!

I like all the names mentioned here for the group otherwise known as greenpeace… eco-terrorists, Greenfleece, Yellowpeace, Sea Predator, Greenshirts etc… It is important to make sure that these folks are properly identified for exactly what they are. My own personal terminology preference is that this is a group whose mission is ‘Eco-jihad’ and the individuals that make up and support this group are thus ‘Eco-jihadists’.

The dif is that whenever GP would put up a banner it made sense and went right to the point.
http://www.adrants.com/images/greenpeace_outdoor.jpg
http://www.greenpeace.org/raw/…ists-hold-bann-4.jpg
http://wattsupwiththat.com/200…aces-mount-rushmore/
So these banners are a bit vague.
How is GP full of lies and propaganda?
What exactly are they lying about?
There is an art to getting your message in just a couple quick sentances. And whoever made these anti-GP messages, failed.
