Greenpeace neither green nor peaceful

Greenpeace is neither green nor peaceful. They are a bunch of terrorists, and should be treated as such, prosecuted to the fullest extent possible under the law. If they were truly green, they would embrace Nuclear Power. And they are misguided as well; global warming is a hoax.

Greenpeace Gets Badass, Drapes Pic Of Obama Over Mt. Rushmore Calling For Climate Action

Greenpeace took a unique approach today and sent several climbers up Mt. Rushmore in the middle of the night to deploy a giant 75lb sixty-five feet high by thirty-five feet wide banner calling for Climate Action. Featuring an unfinished portrait of the President, it read "America honors leaders not politicians: Stop Global Warming." The demonstration came as President Obama meets other G8 leaders in l'Aquila, Italy today to discuss the global warming crisis in the lead-up to UN climate treaty negotiations in Copenhagen this December.

The banner managed to stay up on Mt. Rushmore for about an hour before being cut at around 1:17 PM est. Greenpeace was quick to point out that they respect American monuments and the banner was not installed in any way detrimental to the carvings on Mt. Rushmore.

[UPDATENewsweek's The Gaggle blog says it has learned: "That a team of 12 experienced climbers prepped conspicuously for months planning for different scenarios to ensure the action could be completed safely. The group also promised there would be no damage to the actual monument, which is solid granite. And all involved planned to spend several weeks behind bars."]
