Environmental terrorists target more art. Is jail enough for these thugs?

Environmental terrorists struck again Tuesday in Vienna, Austria, in yet another attack on a work of art worthy of critical praise.

A climate activist group known as the “Last Generation” was behind the attack, according to Fox News, with an “activist” throwing what was described as “black, oily liquid” on Gustav Klimt’s painting, “Death and Life,” at the Leopold Museum in Vienna.

After trying to destroy the masterpiece, an attempt that they filmed, the left-wing zealot who threw the liquid began ranting about ending the use of fossil fuels. At the same time, another climate alarmist is seen trying to glue his hand to the painting to prolong their propaganda campaign.

“The attempted vandalism in Vienna is just the latest in a string of high-profile climate change demonstrations against priceless works of art,” Fox News reported. “Recently, one of Van Gogh’s masterpieces in England had a can of Tomato soup poured over it by climate activists.”

The various museums and art centers cover the artwork with protective barriers to prevent their destruction by stunts like this, according to the network.

But then, it’s safe to suggest that the activists know this and that their actions are carefully orchestrated to draw attention while not going completely overboard with their political theater.

There are hundreds of millions of dollars behind the “environmental justice” movement and in the irony of ironies, the heiress and granddaughter of the oil tycoon J. Paul Getty helps fund climate activists who have targeted artworks and museums. Aileen Getty, 65, is a founding member of the nonprofit Climate Emergency Fund and has reportedly bankrolled anti-fossil-fuel organizations such as Extinction Rebellion and Just Stop Oil.

Environmental terrorism continues because there’s too great an imbalance between actions and consequences, with social media advocating for ramping up said consequences.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
