Far Left Loons Try to Stop Keystone Pipeline By Chaining Themselves to Equipment Not Being Used
Gateway Pundit ^ | 09/13/12 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 09/13/2012 8:35:42 AM PDT by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle

In a move that likely to shake America’s energy future to its core, protestors have adopted the idea of ‘chaining’ themselves to equipment being used for construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline in Texas.

In the video below one anti-gas protester tells reporters, “It’s necessary to stop this pipeline. It’s a threat to our constitutional rights.” Huh?

It’s just too bad the equipment the loons chained themselves to didn’t belong to TransCanada… And, it wasn’t being used on the project that day. [VIDEO]

The solution is to take a torch and heat the cahin on the equipment. When the chain gets hot the protester will give it up.

If the equipment is not being used ..... leave them chained. Do not allow anyone to bring them food, water, no contact with anyone ... they can poop and pee chained to the equipment .... stand out in the weather, etc. Hopefully, they can unchain themselves when they’ve had enough. If they’re stupid enough not to be able to unchain themselves, make them beg ... on camera ... to be released.

This reminds me of those loons screaming and crying over trees in North Carolina.

Only a white liberal would chain themselves to a dozer in America, 90% of Democratic voters could care less about them, 101% of the Republican voters wish the dozers were started and moved.

They should set up a TV in front of the protesters showing the entire first season of Gold Rush.

Those guys were bulldozing acres of Tundra and digging a big muddy hole in the middle of the Tree Massacre.

Oh the Humanity.

IDOCRACY in full view. This is hillarous, wonder when/if they will catch on?

Someone needs to go there and tell them to remove themselves immediately or else. That will be sure to get masses of Idiots to come and chain themselves. Be sure and have the MEDIA there as well, then tell them the truth. ROFL

Run ‘em over like Rachel Corrie.

These eco-terrorists need to be taught a lesson.

Worthless turds deserve to be crushed flat like the VERMIN they are.....

Hmm. This does bring up a brilliant strategy for logging, mining, and drilling companies to do:
1. Hire someone to infiltrate looney green group.
2. Set aside some equipment/area not too far from the real area to be logged/drilled/mined.
3. Have infiltrator lead group to fake area to protest.
4. Continue operations like normal.

The cost of the fake equipment, area, and infiltrator would more than be made up for by the lack of delays and legal costs. A bonus would be video tape the idiots bemoaning the "rape" of the earth and the "death" of the rocks.

Since the loons obviously want to be attached to the equipment, I would add my own chain and locks to help secure them there. I would then give the keys to the biggest, baddest equipment operator out there, the one with lots of kids, who really needs the job. Let the loons try to convince him he should give them the keys.

I was thinking of Edgar Allen Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado", myself.

Set up a no-entry perimeter and let them dehydrate and starve until almost dead. The one with the keys in his pocket will soon see the light.

Nah, that could take a while, I think there’s a quicker way. Just move the Port-A-John next to where the protesters are chained, and see how long they want to stay with those fumes and aromas wafting their way.

First thing the wife & I said should be done, after reading the excerpt. Then head for a sludge pit.

I heard this guy speak last night in Iowa. He helped found Greenpeace; and now supports nuclear energy. He finds these types to not be interested in any solutions for energy.

Very sharp person:
