The madness of Extinction Rebellion

10 Oct

Brendan O’Neill has their number…

Yesterday, in London, I witnessed an eerie, chilling sight: I saw a death cult holding a ceremony in public.

The men and women gathered outside King’s Cross station and formed a circle. They swayed and chanted. They preached about End Times. ‘What will you do when the world gets hot, what, what?’, they intoned, conjuring up images of the hellfire they believe will shortly consume mankind. They sang hymns to their god – science. ‘We’ve got all the science / All that we need / To change the world / Hallelujah’, they sang, rocking side to side as they did so.

They demanded repentance. ‘Buy less, fly less, fry less’, said one placard. Catholics only demand the non-consumption of meat on Fridays, as an act of penance to mark the day of Christ’s death. This new religion demands an end to meat-consumption entirely, as penance for mankind’s sins of growth and progress.

And like all death cultists, they handed out leaflets that contained within them ‘THE TRUTH’. The leaflets foretell floods and fire: ‘We are in trouble. Sea levels are rising… Africa and the Amazon are on fire.’ The only word that was missing was locusts. They can’t be far behind these other ghastly visitations to sinful mankind.

And if you question their TRUTH? Then, like those heretics who were hauled before The Inquisition 500 years ago, you will be denounced as a denier. A denier of their revelations, a denier of their visions. ‘Denial is not a policy’, their placards decreed. Spotting me filming their spooky, apocalyptic ceremony, one of the attendees waved that placard in my face. A warning from the cult to a corrupted outsider.

Yep… Like I’ve said, time and time again

I notice that, like the feminists who like to ape the Handmaids of the Handmaid’s Tale, these folks like to wear red outfits, but this time, ‘men’ also are getting in on the fun, too…

    I think I understand Flat Earthers better now:) It is simply a rebellion against the modern science cult and modern world in general.

    ‘We’ve got all the science / All that we need / To change the world”

    sounds a bit like Voodoo magic, doesn’t it?

      Yes, ‘science!’ as a magic incantation…

    ‘Buy less, fly less, fry less’, said one placard . . . they handed out leaflets

    Leaflets and placards!?!? Have they no shame for the destruction of the environment they caused?

      About as much shame as celebrities jetting around the planet to climate change conferences while preaching at ordinary folks to lower their carbon footprints. 😉
