Ecoterrorists Plot 'to Destroy Civilization'

PORTLAND, Ore. – If you are looking for a way to while away those hot summer days, you might be interested in Green Anarchy Tour, coming to "urban hells" throughout the country this summer.

The tour begins in Ashland, Ore., Wednesday and travels through California and the Southwest before making it to Washington, D.C., in August.

The purpose of the tour, according to its sponsors, is "to destroy civilization on this stolen land."

Green Anarchy Tour is a chance for "environmental" activists, animal "rights" activists, anarchists and urban hell-dwellers of all stripes to gather together to enjoy the musical stylings of punk rock bands such as "Bongzilla" and "The Fartz," and to participate in what they call "Direct Action Workshops."

Direct action is the euphemism that anarchists and ecoterrorists use in lieu of "sabotage," "arson," and other words that might better describe their attacks against government, the business community or society at large.

Wildfires raging in the West and plumes of smoke drifting across the Eastern seaboard from Canadian forest fires are reminders of the consequences that environmental extremism brings to ordinary citizens.

Decades of mismanagement prompted by extreme preservationist groups have resulted in the firestorms now erupting in our national forests. Burned-out buildings, bankrupt businesses, lost jobs, and the destruction of years of valuable medical research all bear the imprimatur of anarchists and terrorists of the sort that Green Anarchy Tour appears to want to attract.

Proceeds from the tour, if there are any, will, according to the official Web site, go to help West Coast anarchist and Earth Liberation Front prisoners such as Jeffrey "Free" Luers and Craig "Critter" Marshall, both convicted of arson for fire-bombing a car dealership in Oregon.

Writing from his prison cell, Luers had this to say about "direct action" by ecoterrorists: "For years, decades, we have pleaded and petitioned those in power, those responsible for injustice, genocide and ecocide. This pleading has gone unanswered. It is time to use actions that can not [sic] be ignored.

'Strike a Match'

"In defense of life, these actions are justified. 'Strike a match, light a fuse. We only have the Earth to lose.'"

Marshall writes from the same viewpoint. "To tear down this corporate society we're going to need more than a few 'wrecking balls' because we can't rebuild an eco-system without tearing down all that stands in its way. You can't grow a garden in concrete."

"The Green Anarchy Tour," the group posts on its Web site, "is an attempt to bridge the gap between the punk movement, the revolutionary anarchist movement, the ecological movement, and prisoners of war who have been incarcerated for their involvement in the struggles listed above.

"The majority of the content encompassed on this tour is from Eugene, an outpost of civilization in one of the most wild bio-regions in 'North America.' Eugene experienced the spirit of wild chaos during a couple [of] years of insurrection. In the aftermath, several comrades were imprisoned, several collectives endured, and what remains today is one of the most sophisticated propaganda mills in history.

"The tragedy of this historic propaganda mill is the geographic limit of it's [sic] reach. While many attempts have been made to present the critique and analysis developed in Eugene, they have not peaked outside of this locale. The Green Anarchy Tour will be an attempt to take the tools we have refined, the tools of resistance, to a new scale.

Will They Travel by Solar-Powered Vehicles?

"Through the media of slides, videos, spoken word, and music, we will share our perspective to comrades across turtle island in what may very well be one of the last state-permitted summers of 'above-ground organizing.' We understand that time is running out, for us and for the earth, and thus we will take our words, ideas, music, and spirit on the snakes of concrete, the civilized transportation infrastructure to various movements in America."

But for the more serious ecoterrorist who eschews the sort of fun and good times that Green Anarchy Tour is bringing to towns across turtle island, there is this alternative option proposed by Earth First!:

"To those feeling suicidal: this may be an answer to your dreams. If you are determined to end it all, don't slink off to some garage and intensify acid rain and the greenhouse effect by CO poisoning. Don't jump off a bridge - blow up the bridge! Who says you can't take it with you?"

Unfortunately, as Earth First! and Green Anarchy Tour remind us, and as we have been reminded in recent weeks by concerns about a dirty bomb possibly in the hands of a U.S. citizen, not all terrorism threats come from outside the country.

Analysis by Bridget Barton, editor of "BrainstormNW," a monthly magazine of ideas, entertainment, culture and politics, for Oregon and the Northwest.

There a few people who consider themselves to be green conservatives. A lot of these Green Conservatives defend the enviral terrorists and get upset when some of us label them as terrorists.

Anyone who doesn't label them as terrorists after reading this has a severe reality break under a green cloud.

America is not going to put up with this nonsense after 9-11. All the dramatizing/lying from the various brat groups...brings to mind the scene in Indiana Jones....the saber wielding show-off, Indy's perfect response.

There's no overstating the case on this crowd. They mean it. The pathetic thing about them is that they have no clue how they are being used by the very corporate fascists they hate the most.

Aptly-named group.

I remember your discussion just this past week with a semi reformed green who said that we were over reacting re our posts and replies about eco terrorism. He still was defending the eco thugs of Earth First.

These groups have harmed the Oregon economy far worse than al Qaeda thugs have. Yet the governor of Oregon sets there and ignores them. Makes you wonder what types of photos they have of him have illegal sex with old growth trees and/or endangered species.

Wonder if Andy Kerr will be on hand in Ashland to direct, lead and cheer these green eco terrorists on as they start their tour of Ecoterrorism to Destroy Civilization.

The Enviro-terrorists are behaving in a corporate fashion. Maybe that should be the first group to be destroyed!

At least Sherman and the Yankees were in a state of war with the South.

What these clymer propose to do, are acts of terrorism against Americans, private property, corporate property, local and federal government property.

That was a great movie scene. It is exactly why I carry a very obvious silver plated 357 Magnum when I fly fish in remote areas up in Oregon and NW California. I'm not worried about bears and critters, I will not become a victim of these clymers.

Amen! These diseased, foul-smelling, filthy-tongued liberal extremists have already destroyed more property in this country than Osama and his boys ever dreamed of. Enemies, foreign and domestic...we have plenty of them right on our own soil.

It's money Dave, from BIG corporations, laundered through successive levels of activist groups. Here is a list of donors to the Ruckus Society:

Funding From Foundations & Corporations Total Donated Time Frame
Turner Foundation $115,000.00 1996 - 1999
Ben & Jerry's Foundation $111,000.00 1998 - 2001
Prentice Foundation $72,300.00 2000 - 2000
Body Shop Foundation $40,000.00 2000 - 2000
Solidago Foundation $40,000.00 1999 - 2000
Max & Anna Levinson Foundation $40,000.00 1997 - 1999
As You Sow Foundation $30,000.00 1997 - 2000
Patagonia Fund $30,000.00 2000 - 2000
Agape Foundation $23,000.00 2000 - 2000
Angelica Foundation $17,000.00 1999 - 2000
Foundation for Deep Ecology $15,000.00 1999 - 2000
Patagonia, Inc. $15,000.00 2001 - 2001
Threshold Foundation $12,060.00 1998 - 1999
Benjamin J. Rosenthal Foundation $11,000.00 1997 - 2000
Tides Foundation & Tides Center $23,400.00 1999 - 2000
Ecology Center, Inc. $8,600.00 1998 - 1998
Friends of the Earth $5,000.00

Now, lest you think that these are mostly small time companies run by wealthy renegades, check out the likes of the Tides Center who got nearly $100,000,000 from the Pew Charitable Trusts, and millions more from the Rockefeller, Packard, Jones, Ford, and McArthur Foundations. These same foundations fund groups such as the Foundation for Deep Ecology, As You Sow, etc.

The point is that the money tree is multilayered for laundering purposes. Turner is one of the few who will fund the more radical groups directly.

Said limit would have had to be imposed because of an AMMO shortage, not a game shortage. Road trip, you know. :-)

In Oregon these eco thugs have had a free reign of terror during the Clintoon years and under their green poster boy governor.

They have a long and serious record of eco arson and destruction of private and corporate property the past 8+ years. Everyone in Eugene with a room temp IQ knows who the anarchists are. They are plotters and movers terrorism in Oregon for close to a decade. In Portland, you would need to have finished a correspondence course in detective work to know who is responsible in Portland.

The only eco thugs arrested last week when they closed down that office building in Portland were Seattle Eco Thugs. All of the Portland eco terrorists got "a walk on by pass" from the Mayor Katz and her police chief. There were just under 50 eco terrorists who seized control of that building in a blatant act of economic terrorism. Then they get their pass from the mayor and the governor.

Incredible isn't it. Probably 98% of these clymers are funded by their parents. The parents give them money to do their thing as long as they stay away from home.

I like that term, "These guys are eco-Jihadists".

So, I added it to the keywords list.

If they start the suicidal parts as suggested by Earth First, we can call them Ecokazis!

Squantos, a few new wordsmithing terms for your list.

They came to Oregon during the sixties and seventies. There is something about this area that attracts them. Probably it's the awe inspiring green land-scapes and heavy rain-fall. I think the eco-nazis up here consider themselves as the "roughin' it" greens while the southern ones are considered to be "sunshine" or psuedo-greens. And yes the people are sick of it...see my posts above...
