“That’s Cooking Oil” – UK Extinction Rebellion Blockades the Wrong Truck

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

UK climate protestors have allegedly plumbed new depths of raw stupidity, but blockading the delivery of cooking oil.

Eco-rabble shut down Marble Arch: Extinction Rebellion mob cause traffic NIGHTMARE in London as they glue themselves to a limousine and eco-warrior Swampy scales the monument

  • Extinction Rebellion protesters have blocked off roads around the Marble Arch near Speaker’s Corner
  • Earlier today the eco fanatics climbed onto a Shell oil tanker at a petrol station in Bayswater, London
  • Along with eco-mob Just Stop Oil, XR have brought 16 days of disruption to traffic, oil depots and commuters
  • Comes after activists blocked four of London’s busiest bridges on Good Friday – causing traffic chaos
  • Several oil firms secured injunctions to stop environmental protesters from targeting fuel processing sites 

A mob of Extinction Rebellion protesters have swamped London’s Marble Arch, glueing themselves to a limousine and bringing traffic to a standstill.

The eco-fanatic rabble have once again brought chaos to the streets of the capital as they launched a series of ‘disruptions’ on a sixteenth days of protests alongside Just Stop Oil activists.

XR members convened in Hyde Park earlier today before one group – which included two former Olympians – climbed onto a Shell oil tanker at nearby Bayswater, leading to six arrests.

Gold medal-winning slalom canoeist Etienne Stott and sailor Laura Baldwin glued themselves to the top of the tanker at a petrol station in Bayswater, near Paddington this morning. 

It a video clip seen on Sky News on Thursday, a interviewee claimed the group had mistakenly stopped a tanker that was carrying cooking oil, rather than fossil fuels.

The video of the Extinction Rebellion cooking oil truck occupation is available here.

I think it is becoming clear why most of them chose to be climate protestors.

“just be nice humans ?” It’s a taste of what our totalitarian betters will be like once The Great Davos Reset has been completed.

On another thread the other day, a well spoken, obviously intelligent UK commenter, accused me of making up a conspiracy when I mentioned The Great Reset! The biggest problem in engaging smart neo-left antagonists is that they draw from “authorized” dialectic talking points and a machine gun belt of of links. When they are drawn off message they show they are truly unfamiliar with even the most well advertised info from there own side.

The part I don’t understand is ungluing them. If they glue themselves to a fence, just say “we’ll check back in a couple of days to see how you’re doing”, then walk away. If they glue themselves to the top of a truck or a subway car “it’s going to be a windy ride up there”. They won’t do that twice….

They use superglue because it’s instant. They do not want to wait around for the glue to dry and trying to remove superglue from skin without tearing takes time.

The formula for superglue is C5H5NO2. It takes acetone to remove it. They are hypocrites by spreading around more carbon, VOC pollution and the powerful Nitrogen Dioxide greenhouse gas NO2 as an integral part of their protests.

Acetone does not burn your skin. It’s a de-fatting agent. What is does is remove the fat from the skin, but not in any way that would assist in weight control. The “burning” sensation is caused by the rapid evaporation of the acetone which actually chills the skin. At very low temperatures, the nerves can’t distinguish the feeling of “cold” from the feeling of “hot”.

I rather hope it is traditional Animal (Horse) Glue. Made by the hydrolysis of the collagen from skins, bones, tendons, and other tissues. The word collagen itself derives from the Greek “kolla” meaning ‘glue’.

In the UK this led to the euphemism “Sent to the Glue Factory” when a horse was sent to meet its maker

I’m not sure that modern HDI Diesels can cope with vegetable oils for long periods.

The old Citroen-Peugeot XD-1 and XD-2 engines could run on most oils. These were by far the best engines with extreme reliability, longevity

Diesel originally designed his engine to use just about anything combustible as fuel, including coal dust. I’m pretty sure that modern diesels can cope with a little vegetable oil, certainly in the warmer weather. Might need additives for winter use though..

I think you may be fighting the wrong argument there, Peta.

If the climate protesting is going to end – it’ll be these muppets that manage to destroy it completely, wipe it out with a backlash aimed at their own stupidity and failure. And good riddance!

All of their activities could be deemed to show mental incompetence, especially when interfering with traffic. This shows a distinct lack of judgement and they should be held spearately from civil society until they can show a more considered responsibility for their own and others’ safety.

” move them to a mental care facility …..their activities could be deemed to show mental incompetence especially when interfering with traffic …..a distinct lack of judgment “? …… Nice try John. Apart from British establishment figures such as Stanley Johnson and Lord Stern psychiatrists and psychologists overwhelmingly support Extinction Rebellion and more than a few join in the cult’s protests Crazy stuff .. Not that I am surprised given these professions long abominable histories of political corruption faddishness and pseudoscience And don’t they hate being reminded of it This is an excerpt from the BPS Division of Clinical Psychology blog dated 14 September 2020 advocating the subversion of parliamentary democracy : ” … a Citizens Assembly to direct the necessary changes and ensure fairness [ social justice ! ] in all activities. You may recognize these as the aims of Extinction Rebellion – we consider these very reasonable ambitions that deserve our support “…The totalitarian proclivities are sinister but you risk diagnosis for daring to suggest there is anything wrong with them .. I sparred with an Extinction Rebellion aficionado psychologist by the name of Steve Salmony on Paul Homewoods page who in all seriousness – or should I say callousness – equated his fellow human beings with profligate ‘bacteria” He is no aberration .Here is another one : Les Harrison …retired clinical and forensic psychologist who started a ‘Grandparents Affinity Group ” within Extinction Rebellion with ‘the aim of mobilizing grandparents to demand immediate and substantial action to combat the climate emergency ” Another aging green radical looking for meaning in his life.. It is pointless to inform him there is no evidence for a climate crisis The organizer of Extinction Rebellions ‘ families arm ” in Melbourne , Christine Canty however , is not inclined to play too naughty.. Christine said she is averse to arrest because she has a psychology registration .. Read the Australian Psychological Society’s doublethink and lying propaganda mocked in the February 2019 Watts Up With That post ” Tips For Spreading Climate Denial Down Under ” and then consider what credibility and merit a psychological registration in Australia has ….. Dr Rosie Jones, interviewed by Dr Roger Paxton , Chair of the British Psychological Society’s “Ethics Committee ” comes across as a grandiose narcissist : ” Psychologists are respected and thereby hold power to influence the public discourse ….morally we should use our privilege, speak out and take action .It is certainly much easier to risk prosecution if you are white [ couldn’t resist the race baiting ] middle class [ and class consciousness ] and relatively well off as many psychologists are ” Yes they tend to be well off And you can be guaranteed these activist shrinks won’t abjure their affluent comfortable lifestyles anymore than the celebrities and millionaires bankrolling this cult Now it is important when considering this disturbing trend of numerous so called ‘,mental health professionals’ deliriously flocking to the Extinction Rebellion cult to remember just who the cults founders are , what they stand for and what they claim this cults philosophy is . Gail Bradbrook apparently found planetary consciousness enlightenment tripping on hallucinogens Roger Hallam dismissed The Holocaust in rather obnoxious terms ….Stuart Basden another Extinction Rebellion co founder declared ” XR isn’t about the climate ….The climates breakdown is a symptom of a toxic system that has infected the ways we relate to each other as humans and to all life …exacerbated when European civilization was spread around the globe…although the roots of the infections go way back “…There is that creepy misanthropic notion once again that humans are a bacillus or an infectious pathogen What other totalitarian political religion last century captivated so many medical professionals , debased human beings as infectious pathogens – and resented democracy ? Just as well Extinction Rebellion has no morbid fascination with deaths head insignia and their emblem is not a re-oriented Germanic symbol..

The tanker – according to the HazChem signs on it actually contained something like vinegar.

Here’s an example of how “British Bobbies” deal with these loons. The cops have also been known to impregnate female protesters ( in a consensual way)

Extinction Rebellion Group should live up to its name and go extinct.

Maybe Musk could buy an island and set up a site that makes no use of any oil, natural gas, or products made from them. Also, omit anything made from or by animals. Wood buildings, dirt floors, cotton, hemp or burlap clothing, only vegetables for food. No coffee or lattes.

No Internet, phones, electricity (not even using renewables. They require plastics, lubricants, insulation on wires, etc.), treated water, communications beyond yelling distance, no protection against bugs, etc. Very few medicines.

Anyone committing a crime protesting against fossil fuels would be sentenced there for six months. Actually, one cold night sitting in an outhouse might be sufficient, but six months should convince them that there are enormous benefits from the use of fossil fuels.

The Bass Rock will do nicely, and the boats that take the tourists out to see the Gannets can point out the Idiots as well.

I don’t get the point of these protests. All they do is enrage people. They probably lose support doing this kind of crap.

Do ER protesters earn a decent salary? If so, who pays it?
