Militant Leftists Have Become the Establishment
Recent remarks like those of Canadian Extinction Rebellion organizer David Suzuki, warning of eco-terrorism in defense of the leftist status quo, only serve to push an already leftist establishment agenda further to the left.
Is there ever going to be a time when the left will stop pretending that it doesn’t completely dominate the North American and Western establishment, and admit that its policies aren’t now totally mainstream?
Speaking last week at an environmental protest on Vancouver Island in the capital city of Canada’s westernmost — and arguably most environmentally active — province British Columbia, legendary long-time environmental fixture and Extinction Rebellion movement organizer, David Suzuki, addressed the assembled disciples. “We’re in deep, deep doo-doo,” Suzuki said. “This is what we’re come to. The next stage after this, there are going to be pipelines blown up if our leaders don’t pay attention to what’s going on.”
Oh, wow. How badass! How edgy! How absolutely worthy of a no-knock visit from the Canadian authorities, if such language were ever to escape from the mouth of someone associated with the political right.
You’re literally standing in a province that’s currently governed by the leftist New Democratic Party. Why not just book an appointment at your comrades’ offices instead of pretending to pose some kind of threat to their agenda?
The Extinction Rebellion movement describes itself as “a decentralised, international and politically non-partisan movement using non-violent direct action and civil disobedience to persuade governments to act justly on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.”
