Hump Day Hilarity: ‘grief ritual for the state of the planet’

Oh boy, just when you think leftists can can’t any more whiny about climate, you see this video taken in London today.

What is needed to stop the insanity is to publicly ridicule them as they’re protesting.
Perhaps a non violent means of pelting them with rotten tomatoes or spoiled lettuce???
En-Masse Crowds wearing Yellow Vests just pointing and laughing at them.

Joke Shops used to carry something called Mourning Breeze. A little vial of a vile substance that smelled of Skunk and Rotting Corpse. A few drops spilled at an XR intersection could clear them out

I would almost be willing to bet that the large wheeled retro style bicycle was purchased from my old friend and one time fellow bike messenger, Curtis Idonotrecallhislastname, who has a shop called Via Bikes near 12th and Pine.

Not quite ‘no one’ JB. The msm cares and the microworlds of socialist media care cos, like that’s their real world, dude.

In the spirit of that classic line in the movie Cool Hand Luke ‘what we have here is a failure to communicate’, what we have here is a failure to effing well grow up. The msm and other parts of the woke world including much of the education system have effectively formed a philosophical Galapagos archipeligo where the predators of open discussion and contrarian views including those that completely disagree with some thesis are missing from the environment. The result is some very stangely evolved species more suited to a zoo like or ‘caged’ environment and kept for the amusement of others or study of their psycho-biology.

For the msm they are like performing monkeys or those cats and dogs you see doing weird things filmed on phones and posted on line, i.e. free content.

I am convinced these people (including Joaquin Phoenix) never got the “Facts of Life” talk from their dysfunctional parents. Hence their perpetual state of being cross-fired with reality. If they weren’t so damn entertaining, they’d be dismissed and ignored as the kooks they are.

I also suspect that all those Hollywood “activists” making wildly inappropriate and absurd rants at awards ceremonies etc. are actually on the payroll of groups like PETA, or Open Society and their “activism” is ASTROTURF bought and paid for. They’re actors, after all–as in SOCK PUPPETS.

Nothing today is as it seems.

The one yapping like a dog , IS as dog.

If it looks like a dog, sounds like a dog , the chances are : it is a dog !!

This video is almost as powerful as the “grief” in the forest sketch where they are all wailing “we love you !!” at the trees.

If you did this kind of sketch to take the mickey out of greenies it would be too stupid and crass to be funny. But when they do it, it somehow works. Pure genius.

Now please excuse me while go in search of dry underwear to change into.

80 years ago, young men lied about their age so they could fight and witness the horrors of war in World War 2. Today, young men need counseling if someone says that they do not agree with.

I blame the parents for letting this happen. They coddled their children, told them were special, never let them fail, never disciplined them. My mom and dad spanked and slapped me; the last one I got was when I was 16. Now, 24 years later I am glad they did. That discipline made me a better person. I was bullied in school, but I never needed therapy. People mocked me, made fun of me. I once had someone try to get me to fight him, but I never did because I knew it was wrong, thanks to my parents discipline. Actually, even a teacher mocked me, albeit slightly. It was a thought experiment where you had to choose who would live or die. I was the only one who chose myself because I could not ask someone else to do what I would be unwilling to do. That was my parents training.

My parents thought me to think, thought me to reason, and corrected me. Parents are in a position to stop this nonsense such as barking like a dog over climate grief. My parents sacrificed money for time with me. It was the right decision. Children need to be trained, not coddled and bought. There are many problems with this world; barking like a dog over the climate ain’t going to fix one thing. And I know the sad thing is there are probably thousands others who will gladly do the same thing because of eco-anxiety. What will they do when the lie finally unravels?

So every aspect of human society that we care about is improving. The environment is humming along happily adjusting to every change that comes along the way it has always done. And these bereaved idiots can only find it within themselves to sob and self flagellate in public over “the horror” of it all. Clearly a real and truly final Armageddon is the only thing that would make them happy. Douglas Adams would have ensured they all departed on the second ark along with the phone sanitizers and marketing executives.

You can mock all you like, but their ritual was actually extremely powerful and effective.
