VIDEO: Amazon Streaming Eco-Terrorism film ‘How to blow up a pipeline’!

A young girl in a hoodie draws a knife, kneels beside an SUV, and slashes two of its tires.  She slaps a paper on the windshield — “Why I sabotaged your property.”

This is the opening scene of a movie you can stream right now on Hulu, or rent from Amazon, called “How To Blow Up a Pipeline.” It is adapted from a book by the same name.

Here’s the book blurb on Amazon:

In this lyrical manifesto, noted climate scholar (and saboteur of SUV tires and coal mines) Andreas Malm makes an impassioned call for the climate movement to escalate its tactics in the face of ecological collapse. We need, he argues, to force fossil fuel extraction to stop–with our actions, with our bodies, and by defusing and destroying its tools. We need, in short, to start blowing up some oil pipelines.

“We have to show how vulnerable the oil industry is by hitting something big, like a refinery,” says the hoodie-girl (looking to move up from slashing tires), “what do you know about Texas?”  What do you know about building a bomb?” her friend replies.

Next scene they’re wiring a bomb.

What better way to normalize eco-terrorism than invite us to follow along and identify with an appealing PC cast of multicultural young people as they attack our nation’s infrastructure?

Watch CFACT’s Marc Morano explain on Fox that government officials are lining up in favor of eco-terror, which has even entered the curriculum at universities.

“This is coming not from just some lone nut like the author of the book “How to Blow Up a Pipeline”; this is coming from NPR, Bloomberg, and the New York Times.  It’s coming from NASA. In 2010, NASA’s lead global warming scientist endorsed a different book that called for ridding the world of industrial civilization.  He literally said they should essentially be blowing up dams.  James Hansen, the former NASA scientist in endorsing this book said the author has it right, the system is the problem… This is nothing short of eco-porn in the form of hard core terrorism.”

“If the American empire calls us terrorists,” the movie bomb-maker says, “than we are doing something right.”

Who will be held accountable when an impressionable young person watches this anti-American call to violence and translates their sick fantasies into action?

For nature and people too.
