Skip to comments.A threat of further vandalism against KRKO, Everett, WA (enviro terrorism)
Posted on 09/28/2009 3:47:40 AM PDT by raccoonradio
The Herald newspaper says the graffiti sprayed on buildings associated with the Skotdal family is visible from Highway 522. The message appears to be a followup to last months sabotage at the KRKO (1380) transmitter site that toppled a whole tower. It says, in part: MBA KRKO/Snotdol [sic] Empire. If you continue to risk killing children, mother earth and her creations, all your holdings are targets.
This extra-long graffiti message ends this way: "Authentic ELF [Earth Liberation Front]? Ask ATF/FBI about restricted water mains. Little water, better burn. ELF. KRKO recently turned on its new 50-kw daytime facility, a move that was bitterly fought by its neighbors for years. Authorities havent made any arrests yet in the pre-Labor Day attack at the transmitter site. Owner Andy Skotdal is offering a $25,000 reward for information about that crime.
ELF group warns of further vandalism
>>MALTBY — A spokesman for the Earth Liberation Front Press Office said he believes graffiti sprayed on a building in south Snohomish County is a warning of further vandalism.
>>Spokesman Tomas Peterson sent the Associated Press an e-mail late Friday about graffiti found earlier this week sprayed on buildings in an industrial park in Maltby that appears intended for the Master Builder’s Association and Everett’s KRKO-AM 1380 AM radio station.
>>Peterson said he believes the graffiti to be “a strong warning directed specifically to the Skotdal family and the Master Builder’s Association.” Peterson adds that “if these entities continue to threaten the health and welfare of the planet, it is very likely we will see future actions by the ELF.” Andy Skotdal is the owner of KRKO.
Mother Earth. Further evidence of the religion of environmentalism. Just another cute little feel good way to diminish Father God.
It would be nice to see someone take the fight to ELF. They’d crap their pants if someone pushed back against them using the same tactics.
KRKO is one of the oldest licensed stations in America. They air sports talk
>>On September 4, 2009, two of the station’s four radio towers were toppled by vandals. A sign left at the scene said the eco-terrorist group Earth Liberation Front was responsible. The station has transferred its radio transmission to a backup site and remains on the air at reduced power.
Note that Wikipedia does use the term eco-terrorist
>>Eco-terrorism is a form of terrorism or sabotage committed in support of ecological, environmental, or animal rights causes against persons (or their property) who are viewed as being harmful to the environment.
>>Eco-terrorism is defined by the FBI as “the use or threatened use of violence of a criminal nature against innocent victims or property by an environmentally-oriented, subnational group for environmental-political reasons, or aimed at an audience beyond the target, often of a symbolic nature.” The FBI has credited to eco-terrorism 200 million dollars in property damage from 2003 and 2008, and a majority of states within the USA have introduced laws aimed at eco-terrorism.
What is there to push back against?
I am just guessing here but I bet the members who do their terror acts dont exactly own homes/cars of any other financial assests.

...you can find ELF at your local hardware store in the spray paint section!
