Greens: Massive civil disobedience if Obama OKs Keystone pipeline
The Washington Times ^ | 4/22/2013 | Ben Wolfgang

Posted on 04/22/2013 3:48:51 PM PDT by markomalley

As the White House moves ever so slowly toward a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline, some environmental groups used Monday — Earth Day — to remind the president that approval of the massive project would carry real consequences.

“You’ll see … the biggest spread of peaceful civil disobedience in modern American history,” said Becky Bond, political director of the liberal activist group Credo. The organization has been among the loudest opponents of the proposed pipeline, which would carry oil sands from Alberta, Canada, south through the U.S. heartland to refineries on the Gulf Coast.

Credo helped organize a San Francisco rally earlier this month as President Obama visited the city for a Democratic party fund-raiser. The group says it has nearly 60,000 activists willing to get themselves arrested in protest of Keystone, if it’s approved by the administration.

We have "massive civil disobedience" now.

The people sounding this alarm haven't seen the tip of the iceberg.

Just wait until the minority of people actually paying taxes in this country just stop doing it.

Exactly and we had better be willing to oppose it if he tries to attach green stupidity to it.

what would be neat is to take one of the bound persons away then you hear a gun shot a couple minutes pass and take another away, another gun shots...

It could be bigger than that. It could be the biggest civil disobedience in the history of the world! Of the GALAXY! It could be the biggest civil disobedience in the history of the UNIVERSE! BIGGER THAN THAT EVEN!!!

Or it could be a couple dozen asshats with V masks and crappy drums. Could go either way.

60,000 people, driving the pollution-belching VW mini buses to the protest over an oil pipeline.

No sense of irony there at all.

It will get approved. 0bama might approve Keystone directly, or he might sign a budget bill with Keystone’s approval tucked into it so that it gets approved indirectly...but I expect Keystone to be approved one way or the other.

Upfront or behind the scenes. 0bama’s economic advisor Joe Weisenthal just went public saying that 2013 3% GDP growth will be due to fracking.

Too many Goldman Sachs advisors in the White House to not bow to the money.

Actually I am because everything is connected ... Zero is razing up both sides and then not leading ... the result is indecision in the middle (LE and Alphabet Agencies) thinking that they have ALL OF THE POWER...

When the people from either side fight back... ZERO wins more Power.
