Denizens, for those of you who read the Rott on a regular basis, this is old news for you, so bear with me.
Me, being the CSITMF guy that I am, I haven’t been quite certain how to respond to this guy (and by “this guy”, I mean Gene Gene the Turn-Tail-and-Running Machine, and not his mewling sycophants Andrew, Brian or Juliette) because – as he’s in India and I’m halfway around the world from him, it makes even less sense to issue The Challenge than usual – not only is he a craven coward, but he has zero way of making it over here.
Unless, of course, he’s planning on coming in this:
Eh. Maybe not.
But it does behoove me to address what he said. Which was this:
What do you do when patient petitioning, protest marches and court orders fail? What do you do when all the protocols and cheat codes of democracy fail? This is what you do: you reclaim the language of democracy from the twisted bunch that have hijacked, cannibalized and subverted it.
Funny you should mention that, Jeannie baby, because most of the folks I am honored enough to call “friends” feel just the same way.
Only it’s gonna be a shock for you and your honeyboys when you see what we do about it.
Pressuring politicians on climate change is not working. We saw that in Copenhagen.
That’s because the politicians have seen that what you’re peddling is abject bullshit. We saw that in East Anglia. “Hide the decline”, y’know.
We need to shift targets and go after the real termites that hollowed out and imploded Copenhagen.
Hmmmm. Sounds to me like you’re wanting to target me and mine – since it was us that exposed your claptrap in the first place.
So we’re your “targets” now, are we? How would it grab you to know the feeling’s mutual?
We need to hit them where it hurts most, by any means necessary: through the power of our votes, our taxes, our wallets, and more.
Ex-squeeze me? Baking powder? Just what is this “more” you’re proposing?
Be verrrrrrrrry careful how you answer that, pussy. Something tells me that – to paraphrase a certain movie character – you don’t wanna ride that train.
The proper channels have failed. It’s time for mass civil disobedience to cut off the financial oxygen from denial and skepticism.
If you’re one of those who believe that this is not just necessary but also possible, speak to us. Let’s talk about what that mass civil disobedience is going to look like.
If you’re one of those who have spent their lives undermining progressive climate legislation, bankrolling junk science, fueling spurious debates around false solutions, and cattle-prodding democratically-elected governments into submission, then hear this:
We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.
And we be many, but you be few.
Ah. The money quote, despite the scared little bleatings of Juliette, Brian & Andrew. They may say you don’t intend violence, but those of us who have our heads screwed on straight know just a little bit better.
Bring it on, Jeannie, you pansified little asswipe. Bring your vegan, Gaia-worshipping, tree-humping butt-buddies, if you’d like.
We’re ready to rumble any. Time. You. Grow. A. Set.
Let’s see whatcha got, chickenshit.
