Enviro-hippies advocate violence at ‘peaceful’ demonstration

Powered by Topple

I sometimes don’t believe today’s liberals quite have that “non-violent demonstration,” civil disobedience, “Give peace a chance” thing quite down. This is one of those instances.

Portland Rising Tide, a Pacific Northwest group mainly concerned with climate change, organized a “Kayak Flotilla” on the Columbia River Saturday. According to its website:

The Pacific Northwest is under attack. We will fight back, defending what we love, and our climate future.  Big coal, oil, and gas plan to transform the NW coastline from Oregon up to Alaska into a vast fossil fuel corridor with over 15 export terminals proposed.

And fight this peaceful organization was prepared to do. As depicted in the video, remarks recorded included, “Sometimes you have to shed blood,” “There’s certain times to use peaceful tactics, and certain times to use more aggressive tactics,” and “I’m on the non-violent side [but] I have nothing against violence. it could be necessary.”

This was recorded during a training session just prior to and in anticipation of the event itself, according to Laughing at Liberals who published the video.

Just out of curiosity, what do you think the reaction would have been if these remarks had been recorded at a tea party rally?
