If these neo-millenarianist fucks want to air their kooky religious views on the impending end of the world, that's fine, but shit like this warrants a firing squad.

'Why I'm using a drone to stop Heathrow flights'

By Catrin Nye
Victoria Derbyshire programme
13 September 2019 London

Environmental protesters are trying to use drones to bring flights to a halt at the UK's biggest airport, Heathrow, from Friday. Why are they taking this drastic step, and who will it affect?

"I find the whole prospect of potentially going to prison terrifying," Sylvia Dell tells the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme, regarding the threat she could soon face.

"But this issue is too important."

Ms Dell says she has already been arrested for taking part in previous climate change protests.

Now the retiree intends to fly a lightweight, toy drone within the three-mile (5km) no-fly zone surrounding Heathrow Airport, in a protest known as Heathrow Pause.

The aim is to bring attention to the environmental damage the planned third Heathrow runway could cause.

Ms Dell describes its construction as "sheer lunacy".

She decided to take action when one of her sons, aged 27, explained how angry he was that previous generations had done little to tackle global warming, and she remains resolute in her view that what she describes as "civil disobedience" can bring about change.

The protests began on 13 September, but could stretch further.

Heathrow Pause said the airport would be given an hour's notice before all of the drone flights, which are planned at regular intervals to ensure "no aircraft flights will take place".

The Met Police has said it will "do everything in its power to stop and prevent any such criminal activity" and that the consequences of flying the drones are "potentially very severe".

But Ms Dell disputes this, saying she believes it is "perfectly safe" to fly the toy drones at head height, as planned, although she has no formal experience of piloting one.

Heathrow Airport has described the campaigners' plans in a statement as "criminal and counterproductive".

"We agree with the need to act on climate change", it said, adding: "This is a global issue that requires constructive engagement and action."

Ms Dell has said previous meetings with the Heathrow Aviation Authority, in her view, have proved ineffective.

She now wants the government to listen and take action - something she hopes these protests will achieve.

The Heathrow Pause organisers say the protests have been timed to disrupt mostly frequent flyers and those flying for business reasons.

Peopla has a right to protest. I hope the British police and government will respect this.

There Paramount goes again, comparing entitled little shits living in a First World liberal democracy to people desperately attempting to protect their few and fragile rights against one of the most oppressive totalitarian regimes on the planet.

If you are such a fan of the communist Chinese system of government, nothing is stopping you from moving to Beijing.

Executing people for protesting is something that belongs in oppressive totalitarian regimes.

Sure people have a right to protest in most countries. When that right infringes on the rights of others there should and often will be consequences. Part of civil disobedience is being aware of the legal consequences and being willing to face/accept those consequences.

Greta and a legion of supporters are protesting outside the White House, taking up space and possibly blocking roads to and from the White House:


”Teen climate champion Greta Thunberg brought her global environmental message to the heart of the US government on Friday, telling her legion of supporters outside the White House: "Never give up."”

”The 16-year-old Swede, who has inspired youngsters across the world with her urgent call to arms, demanded action from the world's number one economy and its notoriously climate change skeptical president”

”Thunberg joined a few hundred people who shouted slogans and sang”

”007 star Pierce Brosnan warns Greta Thunberg to 'be careful'

Actor Pierce Brosnan, who played British secret agent James Bond, heaped praise Saturday on Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg but also warned that she must protect herself.

She is "a very strong voice for young people who are scared," the 66-year-old Irish actor added, before warning: "She has to be careful, has to be protected."

Tick Tock. Jared Kushner found that 1000 Republicans were dying every day in America compared to democrats and hid the info from Trump because he was afraid of enraging the orange goon.

Back in 2000, there was no generational gap in voting. Older voters actually preferred Gore by a little bit.

Now Republicans win the older voter slightly and lose younger voters by massive margins.

Guess what's one of the main issues driving this?

Tick Tock.

Indeed, tick tock. That's the sound of people becoming increasingly disgusted with the extremist turn of the Democratic Party, and seeking literally anyone else to lead the country.

Dukhat tends to forget that while older people are dying off, the generations succeeding them are gradually becoming more conservative themselves with each passing day. It's a natural function of gaining wisdom as you age and realizing that the Marxist propaganda that your far-left teachers had tried to instill in you when you were a child is bullshit.

Tick tock.

As for people living in ideological bubbles, who was it in this thread that was 100% convinced that Donald Trump couldn't win the election in the first place and that Republicans were finished as a national party, because CNN and HuffPo had spent the last two years constantly telling him as much?

2016 should have been a learning moment for Dukhat, in realizing that maybe his outlook on the political world was deeply flawed and required some measure of recalibration. Instead, he chose to double down on the stupidity and insist that his California-style politics are shared with by the rest of the country. Oh well.

Tick tock.

This made me laugh and laugh. I can see you spitting all over your monitor as you angrily bang on your keyboard.

"who was it in this thread that was 100% convinced that Donald Trump couldn't win the election"

I was one of them. For most of the primary I was convinced he was running just to make Republicans look bad and give Hillary an easy win.
