Claim: Green Terrorists are Planning Major Attacks

Essay by Eric Worrall

h/t Breitbart; German news outlet Junge Freiheit claims a leaked police document describes numerous incidents of suspicious drone surveillance of critical energy infrastructure.

Federal Criminal Police Office warns of left-wing extremist attacks

November 25, 2022

BERLIN. The Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) has warned of left-wing extremist attacks on critical infrastructure in Germany. In principle, it can be stated that, particularly since the Russian attack on Ukraine, there has been an “increased interest on the part of the left and the climate activist scene in actions against, among other things, infrastructure facilities and commercial companies associated with the oil and gas industry,” according to a BKA report. Secret paper from November 21st, which JUNGE FREIHEIT has.

In concrete terms, the authority refers in its paper “Hazard assessment of possible spying behavior of critical infrastructure and military facilities” to numerous cases in which suspicious incidents occurred in the vicinity of important energy systems or military facilities. More than 20 suspicious cases have been registered since February.

A word of caution. I don’t know much about Junge Freiheit. Wikipedia describes Junge Freiheit as the German “ideological supply ship of right-wing populism“. Maybe they are kindof a German Breitbart? Please comment if you know more.

I don’t have a copy of the alleged leaked document Junge Freiheit claims provides this information.

But if the eco-terror claim is correct, we could be about to enter a terrifying new chapter in green extremism, in which the most fanatical green organisations evolve into fully fledged terrorist cells, dedicated to committing large scale attacks to advance their climate action agenda.

Just check out the Japanese Shin’yō, Kairyu, Kaiten, and Okha manned suicide explosive delivery systems. In the the intervening 80 years technology has made the living pilots redundant. It should have also made the delivery vehicle a lot better also.
The Norwegians would be wise to keep a close watch on their off-shore energy systems, as would the British and Dutch

Green Wienie Eco-Sabotage has been with us for some time, maybe starting with tree-spiking, as noted by Strativarius, even to the point of utilizing ceramic spikes which could not be detected with simple magnetic susceptability meters. A part of Risk analysis for major companies now includes the potential for being the victim of eco-sabotage. The destruction of a cyanide control valve, and simultaneous opening of the safety control dike, at the gold mine Veladero, in Argentina, in September, 2015, was an example of the warped justification eco-terrorists go to trying to “save the earth”. Businesses need more security, especially those with clandestine history backgrounds, to counter-attack these Loonies. Counter-attack is what capability Ukraine lacks but Taiwan has a lot of.

Just prior to the eclipse in 2017 we in Wyoming were warned about a “suicide cult” that was planning a mass suicide here. People took the advice of “experts” and locked up everything in site, patrolled pastures, etc. There was no evidence that any bad people showed up except the usual number of dopes.

Then in the early summer of 2020 we were warned that BLM was planning riots in our larger cities so that we wouldn’t feel left out. People stood guard on building roof tops all over the state. Nothing happened except for a few left wing activists doing their usual whining. The protests never grew to more than about 250 people cheered on by the usual leftwing retirees who are a subset of the usual number of dopes.

All that these two episodes accomplished was to make folks around here look, as one familty member put it, like a bunch of rednecks.

I am maintaining a sense of complete skepticism until there is hard evidence delivered by some who does not label themselves an expert.

While Guiliani was mayor of New York, he ordered the police to crack down on smaller crimes like tagging and breaking windows. Since there was an increased presence of police looking at smaller crimes, the ones commiting larger crimes were swept up too.
Amazing how small actions bring great results.

The fabled ‘broken window’ policy.

It might have been describe as a Scrumping policy in my youth. Scrumping was nicking apples from the neighbours tree. Get caught, the cops were called, you were taken home to your Dad, and HE was warned to make sure it never happened again.

Fortunately I was never caught as I was more scared of my Dad than I was the cops, who later employed me.

I too had a healthy respect and, later, gratitude for my parents, I never went scrumping as we had our own apple trees, but had I done so and been caught I know I would not have sat down for a while.

Maybe I’m just a miserable old man but it seems to me that many of the “developed worlds” societal problems can be quite fairly laid at the feet of the apparently “encouraged” implosion of the family unit. Destroying family and spiritual values has long been one of the tools of the Marxist/Communist cadres.

Parents are no longer held accountable for the result of the neglect of their off spring. The resultant spiritual/moral/financial bankruptcy of the abused young adults has created an expectation for society to step in and fix the outcome of the abdication from family responsibilities.

In many ways the marriage license of yore was an unwritten permission/contract to procreate whilst being responsible to and recognizing the needs of the rest of the village, to use a well-worn and abused phrase.

The statistics on crime rates for the offspring of single parent homes of any race, creed or colour do not lie.

I spent years in the mid 1970’s in what were then classified as third world countries. I observed that people took great care and effort in the raising of children, it was exemplary compared to the behaviour of far too many in our contemporaneous society. We have gone backwards in far too many ways.
A world where children have almost become simply a fashion statement.

Time to put the soapbox away, but a good rant is cathartic.

During the Vietnam war, my undergraduate institution (The Massachusetts Institute of Technology) was frequently the target of spray-paint anti-war technology. Removal of the graffiti caused damage to the surfaces of the stone from which the buildings were built. They could have increased the Campus Patrol, but, being engineers and scientists, they developed a coating for the stone that allowed the paint to be washed off with a hose, with no damage to the stone. I don’t know if they commercialized the product, but it might be very valuable now.

If such attacks do occur, it will give the “authorities” the ability to blame the damage from the attacks for any fuel shortages this winter, rather than their climate policies.

Seems like this is long over due for people who claim the survival of the world is at stake.
Politicians like to lecture about the existential threat from climate change. But their policies fall well short of the aggression and urgency that such a calamitous outcome demands.
Doing the CO2 emissions math one can come to only one conclusion. The only way to stop the climate destruction is to shut down much of mankind’s use of fossil fuel.
By a bloodbath of force, of course, since their will be mighty big resistance.

The global powers that be will have to go Full Monty China like to make the masses behave.

I do not understand all of the negative votes. You are, of course, correct. Absolutely radical action would be required right now IF CO2 were the villain it is made out to be. Yet, politicians have not even reduced highway speed limits. All of which indicates that something else is in play. Likely something far more sinister than we have considered.

That’s always the problem, especially where private firearm ownership is prohibited or heavily regulated – the police need to be the ones to lead the revolt against government overreach in those situations, and they’re not conditioned for that.

How will the droners deal with this situation?

Norwegian wind turbine manufacturer Equinor is on course to install 7, of 11, floating wind turbines in its Hywind Tampen wind farm by the end of the year and has already supplied electricity to North Sea fossil fuel facilities.

“The tapping of wind, including from floating turbines, as alternative sources of power for offshore oil and gas is gathering traction around the world”

The idea that the human race is a blight on the planet seems to be one of the core beliefs of the greenest of the green. One way to eliminate that blight might be to “leak” a pathogen from a bio-secure lab. That would be eco-terrorism on a global scale.

Those of us with a cynical and suspicious disposition might wonder if we’ve just seen a trial run.

If we were cynical and suspicious I would suspect that western governments contracted the Chinese to create a virus to rid them of our biggest health liability straining health systems and budgets, the aged, and then leak it to the public.

Then the western governments would allow daily flights from china including wuhan while calling everyone racist for suggesting china created it or banning flights from there.

We would also ship our limited PPE to china to limit our ability to control it.

Then democratic governors would order sick people be returned to long term care to assure its spread among intended targets, the 21st century equivalent of catapulting plague victims into castles or leaving smallpox infected blankets in native villages.

In canada we have assisted dying for all, now proposed for 12 year olds who are “sad”.

Of course, the above might only be considered if we wear tinfoil hats.

Junge Freiheit is a German political weekly with a traditionalist conservative outlook which would be thought unremarkable in most countries: it opposes political correctness in the name of a nationalism based on German culture and history. It is <a href=”https://bit.ly/3XHj0oW”>committed</a> to the German constitution and to free speech and cannot be classed as far right.

A BLM event in Kenosha is a both a legitimate, non violent protest scene (where you don’t need a weapon) and a war scene (where you should expect violence and then you get you asked for – which isn’t rape culture in that case). Bringing a weapon in either case is violence and also makes you a “terrorist”.

Burning a gas station is a protest and almost legal protected speech (and expressing such speech justifies crossing borders – borders are man made meaningless arbitrary lines anyway) and using an extinguisher is a violent provocation (since putting stuff on fire is speech) and an unjustifiable crossing of a state border which is a very legitimate delimitation.

And nobody was disbarred.

Remember that to many the Guardian is considered a well balanced centralist publication.

Remember that there is an active movement to have the Murdoch press banned because they are too powerful and Right Wing.

(Murdoch Press is successful because it understands market shares. It knows that not everyone wants the same paper, so makes sure each of their papers have a slightly different focus and do not compete with each other. THAT is why they are successful. Also slightly woke. Check out new.com.au if you don’t believe me.)

‘Right Wing’ is Woke short hand for ‘They don’t agree with us’.

November 29, 2022 5:33 pm

It’s been happening in Canada for more than two years. The Coastal Gas Link project has been victim of numerous terrorist attacks. We just don’t hear about it because the legacy media doesn’t care.

On the very night the Liberal govt invoked the Emergencies Act against truckers, eco terrorists caused $2 mill in damage at a remote construction site in British Columbia. They even fired flare guns at workers taking cover in a truck.

This is 2 million times more damage than the truckers ever caused. The hypocrisy is mind blowing.

This summer, they fire bombed two cars in the driveway of a high ranking RBC bank official in Montreal. The RBC is financing the project. And this fall, they firebombed eight emergency and police vehicles in another community in British Columbia.

The legacy media simply turns a blind eye when it comes to favoured causes.

If governments at all levels start prosecuting these kooks early and often, it might cause them to think twice about their activities; but if they adopt a wishy-washy stance, it will serve only to encourage them. So it might be up to consumers, who are the most likely to be affected by power shortages, to demand action.

“Hazard assessment of possible spying behaviour of critical infrastructure and military facilities” to numerous cases in which suspicious incidents occurred in the vicinity of important energy systems or military facilities.
Some years ago I went to photograph the signal box at Salwick in Lancashire. Directly on the other side of the railway line there is a nuclear fuel production installation owned by Westinghouse. While I stood on a road bridge that crosses the railway line, two security men from the nuclear installation approached me to enquire what I was up to. And on a visit to Athens I was stopped from taking photographs at the railway station in case I might have been an Albanian spy.
