  1. a happy little debunker

    I just wish they would seriously consider ‘saving the planet’ by not exhaling.

  2. John bowyer

    How about cancelling any driving licence they posses? That will reduce their carbon footprint and of course confiscate passports, no air travel!

  3. Entropy

    I was surprised there were 60 there.

  4. DaveR

    Once convicted, publish their names and their occupations.

  5. Scott Osmond

    I don’t know what they are thinking. Even those I know who swallow the climate fraud are becoming exasperated by the antics. Delays getting to work and appointments. Who knows maybe this will have a adverse effect on the Greens and Labor at next years QLD election?

  6. Karabar

    Maybe the Chinese and their re-education camps are not such a terrible idea.

  7. Slim Cognito

    Idiots, one and all.

    They are spoiled children and they will remain infantilized well into their old age.

    They have no principles. They pretend austerity, yet they live willingly and wantonly in privilege. They participate wholesale in everything they denounce. Their cause is a sham. Their lives shallow and hedonistic.

    And they have no allegiance to the society that nourished and protected them…. They would take money from our direst enemies out of pure spite.

    … and we’ve seen the likes of them now in Christchurch and El Paso. Them and their Manifestos justifying their violence and misanthropy. Angry Green Supremacists raging at the world.

    They are spoiled children and they will remain infantilized well into their old age.

    Well said.

  10. DaveR

    They are spoiled children and they will remain infantilized well into their old age.

    Look at the attempt to unseat Frydenberg in Kooyong by green activist Michael Staindl.

  11. Lazlo

    There is a word for it: decadence.

  12. Tombell

    Is there a collective noun for these climate zombies?

  13. Lazlo

    Tricky. It’s four legs good, two legs bad. Sheep? Morons? Difficult.

  14. Up The Workers!

    “Is there a collective noun for these climate zombies?”

    An ‘idiocy’ of Leftards?

    A Parliament of pea-brains? – They are now starting to infest both chambers – the House of Reprehensibles and the Senile.

    Tie them stark, bollocks naked to that big flagpole in Canberra one sub-zero temperature morning and let them all show us how they “warm to death”.

  15. Jannie

    Maybe they are loonies, but if they believe that they are saving the planet then they will feel gratified so signal to the world their superior virtues, and they have succeeded. They are a bunch of girls, they do it for fun, not for effect.

    If I really believed that the survival of the planet depended on my participating in direct action, I would not be engaging in narcissistic exhibitionism. I would be doing it quietly and explosively.

  16. Fair shake of the sauce bottle

    I would have thought the best way to disperse them would be to send in the soap and water squad.
    Or perhaps firing upon the crowd with frozen hamburger patties
    The finale would be to drive up a good ole V8 and let it idle until they stop.

    The Qld government gives these protestors clearance to hold the city to ransom …

    “They have been told they can legally stay there until 2pm.”

    https://www.echo.net.au/2019/08/28-arrests-as-extinction-rebellion-protest-in-brisbane/

    … only to play the victim:

    “Is annoying thousands of people who may or may not sympathise with your cause actually a worthwhile tactic?

    The answer is a firm “no” from the Brisbane Lord Mayor and the Queensland Premier when it comes to the actions of climate change activist group Extinction Rebellion.

    Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk called for the protests to stop.”

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-08-07/extinction-rebellion-get-in-your-face-annoyance-tactics/11388530

    The Qld government doesn’t want the disruptive green anti-coal-progress protests to stop.

    It owns them.

  18. Mundi

    I saw a large group of them walk back across Victoria bridge and into work at ABC South Bank.

    Not even joking.

  19. Rockdoctor

    The proof will be what the prosecutors charge them with & what the compromised bench hands down. I’d say on past form we will be underwhelmed again…

  20. Tombell

    Gotta luv their ABC . It’s line ball folks. Perhaps scarily, it is.


    If comments to the ABC’s Facebook page are a guide, the actions of Extinction Rebellion pretty much split opinions down the middle

  21. Rafiki redux

    It would be nice were a business owner to engage Sue, Grabbit and Runne to use an economic tort or two against an organiser of these activities. An appeal for crowd funding might be fruitful.

  22. Mark M

    If only XR protestors would see their doctor to help in an assisted dying plan, the planet would be saved.

    Also, they are using paper straws, so prepare for beautiful weather one day, perfect the next.

  23. Mark M

    Thank you, fossil fuels …

    “The Northern Rivers Extinction Rebellion group bussed up to Brisbane to highlight the climate emergency that is taking place on a global level.”

    https://www.echo.net.au/2019/08/28-arrests-as-extinction-rebellion-protest-in-brisbane/

    If they set out on bamboo bikes a week before dressed in hair shirts, I might have been impressed.

  24. Pauly

    Why didn’t the polce use water dannon on them?

    Because the runoff would have contaminated the Brisbane River.

  25. egg_

    The hick State is having difficulty transitioning to Green?
    Oh, the ironing.

    ‘Tear the system to the ground’: Brisbane climate protesters chant, block street – video

  27. Fair shake of the Sauce bottle

    When will our Chinese Government do something about these protestors?

  28. mh

    Sponsored by George Soros.

  29. duncanm

    Why didn’t the police use water cannon on them?

    They like superglue – how about a glue cannon?

  30. Areff

    Sentence them to a night in the Goulburn motel where I have just shivered through a fitful sleep. That’ll learn ’em

    Hilarious fruit loopery … but sad when you consider how many kids are believing this shit.

    There was a funny meme I heard: there was a time when we believed that the fundamental cause of worldwide ignorance and stupidity was because not enough people had access to information, so then we invented the Internet to solve that. We can now rule out that theory as tested and failed … people have been given plenty of information and are as ignorant and stupid as ever.

    That’s possibly a bit pessimistic … it takes time for everyone to adapt, sort, filter, learn, etc.

  32. Here’s a very interesting article that describes some on the right, but just about everyone on the Left: http://www.intellectualtakeout.org/article/why-only-villains-are-running-president:

    In movies and literature, the hero is the one who changes. Villains don’t change; they go on being villainous in fairly predictable ways.

    As I read Pressfield’s essays on heroes, I applied his analysis to the current candidates for President; all I saw were villains, saying predictable things and unwilling to learn and change.

    Pressfield writes, “The Villain believes in a world of scarcity.” Describing a zero-sum view of life, he explains, “[The Villain’s] point of view is predicated upon the notion that if he is to survive and even prosper, he must take from you and me. No other equation exists for him. He cannot conceive of any other world.”

  33. Chris M

    They are true believers in the AGW hypothesis. Just like ISIS are true believers in the Koran. And ABC is so inclusive it just loves all believers. Except Christian ones.

  34. Roger

    I saw a large group of them walk back across Victoria bridge and into work at ABC South Bank.

    Not even joking.

    The ABC is a bastion of Watermelonism.

    They are still bleating about Adani and the black throated finch at every opportunity.

    And that despite Jackie Trad’s urging that they “move on”.

  35. Lilliana

    When will our Chinese Government do something about these protestors?.

    Never, because the protestors are creating a diversion while the Chinese quietly continue to colonise New Australia.

  36. 60 arrested but how many were released without being charged?

  37. Roger

    I saw a large group of them walk back across Victoria bridge and into work at ABC South Bank.

    Not even joking.

    Incidentally, Mundi, Your personal observations are worth passing on to one or two Sky News producers.

  38. Dr Fred Lenin

    Sentence them to a gulag at Adani ,forced to dig coal 12 hrs a day 7 days a week ,minimum sentence 5 years with no remission .

  39. egg_

    They are still bleating about Adani and the black throated finch at every opportunity.

    And that despite Jackie Trad’s urging that they “move on”.

    Rent-a-crowd.

    It still ain’t happening, feral green peoples.

    Throwing cold water on extreme heat hype (7 Aug, via Climate Depot)
    By Dr. Joel N. Myers, AccuWeather Founder and CEO

    …although average temperatures have been higher in recent years, there is no evidence so far that extreme heat waves are becoming more common because of climate change, especially when you consider how many heat waves occurred historically compared to recent history.

    Greens aren’t good at history though. Nor do they know about solar minimums, Rossby waves and jet stream blocking events, which have been causing many of the recent hot and cold weather patterns in the northern hemisphere.

  41. Lee

    ‘Tear the system to the ground’

    So they’re admitting it’s not just about the climate; they’re full-blown Marxists.

    I saw a large group of them walk back across Victoria bridge and into work at ABC South Bank.

    Not even joking.

    The ABC is a bastion of Watermelonism.

    When all the leftists going to stop with the totally absurd pretence that the ABC “is unbiased.”
    They are not even remotely close to a centrist position.

  42. Mother Lode

    Love the banner with #WeWillRiseTogether.

    Probably a good idea to stop supergluing yourselves to the road.

  43. Enyaw

    Build barricades around them and leave the glued ones ..Glued ..

  44. “The Northern Rivers Extinction Rebellion group bussed up to Brisbane to highlight the climate emergency that is taking place on a global level.”

    So they are humanities and yarts students and perfessers from Lismore, Byron Bay and Nimbin.
