Home-grown terrorists

BREAKING NEWS: A banner left at the site of a well-planned arson attack, which has destroyed at least three homes on a Street of Dreams outside of Seattle this morning, indicates the Earth Liberation Front is behind the crime.

Readers may remember my Western Standard scoop of September 2006, when I revealed that attacks by the radical environmental group had caused at least $3 million damage in Ontario that year.

UPDATE:  KING-5 TV reports, "The Street of Dreams arson coincides with the trial of Briana Waters, an alleged Earth Liberation Front member accused of torching the UW horiticulture center in 2001."

Here's a link to an LA Times story on the arson attack, which is now estimated to have caused $7 million in damages.

Just as Break and Enter perpetrators are simply freelance socialists, eco-terrorists are simply freelance pseudo-environmentalists taken to their logical conclusion.

Decades of junk-science, re-branded Marxism, and anti-human propaganda, thanks to the professoriate, public schools, msm, and governance cheerleaders, has resulted in several types of pseudo-environmentalists: the thoroughly superficial (soccer moms against clear-cutting); the hypocritical (Gore, Suzuki, and most other self-proclaimed PC environmentalists urging others to act) and the "logical" who take their anti-human, anti-capitalism theology seriously by acting on their beliefs (ELF, Earth First, Sea Sheppard society, Greenpeace, etc, etc, etc.). The later group also includes measured actions taken by bureaucrats on a continuous and incremental basis mostly by statute but frequently as free-lancers.

Taken as a whole this pseudo-environmentalism has effectively replaced Christianity, and Marxism in Western civilization and is far more dangerous than any existing threats.

It would be nice if this happened in Toronto, but it won't. Then the terrorists would be homeless.

Not only should these thugs be hunted down but the mother organisations to which they belong and represent should be severely fined and made to pay all damage.

At last...some reportage on terrorism that has in reality the potential to harm people in North America. Nice entry.

Or perhaps the builder of these "high demand" multi-multi million dollar houses, surmised that he was not going to be able to sell them (ever) and that he was going to lose his complete ass financially, and then he stumbled across the fire insurance policy that his lender required him to have in order to protect their (otherwise worthless) collateral, and then "...home grown terrorists ... angry about the environment...". What naive bullshit.

Every economic downturn, a bunch of (criminal) speculator dopey "businessmen" get overly strung out into dumb "investments" and set fires or otherwise try to push their dumb decisions over onto somebody else (e.g. increasing the rates paid by regular homeowners and car owners who pay insurance premiums to protect against actual unforeseen losses).

You guys ought to get a look at the amount of "eco-terrorism" which goes on in the garment industry where there are "tragic fires" occuring in warehouses full of slow moving stupid inventory, every day.

Bic lighters and gas cans are so much easier to get and not as mentally taxing as flying or truck driving lessons.

Think of all the CO2 that has just been liberated, eh Max?
