They really didn’t think this through very well, or at all, even.
We’ve seen a lot of climate change protesters in this country. They’re usually incredibly annoying, doing things like blocking traffic by linking themselves together on the highway or gluing their hands to something.
Last week as we reported, we saw these two people throw soup at Van Gogh’s Sunflowers and glue themselves to the wall.
The usual reaction to people like this has been to cut them loose or free them from the glue and arrest them.
But the folks at Volkswagen may just have had the best response ever to this kind of idiocy.
Sixteen members of “Scientist Rebellion” (which looks like an offshoot of Extinction Rebellion) went to the Porsche pavilion at Volkswagen’s Autostadt in Germany. Nine of them glued themselves to the floor, they also had six other people, and one of the glued “scientists” claimed that some were “on hunger strike until our demands to decarbonize the German transport sector are met.”
But hold on, here comes the best part. Rather than calling the police, getting them loose, and having them arrested, the Volkswagen people left them there and closed, turning everything off, with them glued to the floor, without food, heat, and as, they complained, any way to go to the bathroom.
And with that, hilarity ensues.
.@VW told us that they supported our right to protest, but they refused our request to provide us with a bowl to urinate and defecate in a decent manner while we are glued, and have turned off the heating. People in support can’t get out of the building. 2/ pic.twitter.com/YZuuiww5Q4

You’ve nailed it mate. No heating, no lights. You’ve successfully decarbonised the hall that you are in. Let us know how it’s working out for you, and see if you can join the dots. https://t.co/0pcg3nqTSV

Hm. Doesn’t look to me like the fucking moron specified a china, glass, or porcelain bowl for his scraggly-ass crew to crack some stink-pickles into, so I can only assume these Supergenii would have all been okay with a nice, petrochemical-based plastic one. In fact, after a few days of holding it in, they’ll all be thrilled beyond words with anydamnedthing they could get their hands on to keep from pinching a stinking loaf in their Underoos.
Suffer, bitches. Stupidity this blindingly incandescent should be painful.
Ha, ha, ha, and ten thousand million more laughs.
So after leaving the 1st comment I listened to the dolt. I 100% support these MF’s having their lungs shut down in order to stop them from exhaling CO2 which is polluting the atmosphere and causing the earth to heat up. If they will stop breathing I’ll listen to them, otherwise I ignore the vapid pustules of bloviating bullshit.
Useful idiots some here some there
Of all the stupid protest tactics, this has to be the dumbest. I’d leave them there like a piece of bad artwork, and simply walk/drive around them. About the only thing I’d do, since they are stuck, is empty out their pockets.
I watched a show on BBC in the UK about 3 years ago described a study about weather data taken by various sources in Europe from 1719 to that date. It showed an almost bullet proof 60 year bell curve for temperature variation. When I got home and thought about it I tried to get a copy of the show and it had been scrubbed but JAC I guess
