The goal of these hardline Leftist Enviro-types is total destruction of freedom and Capitalism and all the "luxuries" that go along with it. Pure and simple. The environment doesn't mean squat to them. They want power. Total power. They use the environment as a tool to get that power."We are threatening homeland security. Yes, we are threatening their economy," he said to the crowd of supporters. "We are going to build something better from the ashes."
"Maybe it is time we start embracing what we are talking about," he said. "Yes, we are talking about ruining our economy. … Yes we are talking about we just don't want to end coal, we want to end inequality, too."
Fortunately for America, Timmy is going away for about 10 years...to Federal prison. But there are thousands of others just like him.
Supporters gather in support of activist Tim DeChristopher
SALT LAKE CITY — On the day he faced being sent to prison for as long as 10 years, environmental activist Tim DeChristopher called for a nonviolent revolution against a corrupt federal government and the pursuit of a society where injustices are extinguished.
"We are threatening homeland security. Yes, we are threatening their economy," he said to the crowd of supporters. "We are going to build something better from the ashes."
Activists who are in support of Tim DeChristopher cheer at the end of their rally across the street from the federal courthouse, Thursday, June 23, 2011. DeChristopher's sentencing has been postponed until next month.
Supporters of the climate change folk hero say any time behind bars signifies a corrupt federal government already overtaken by corporate interests that put profits ahead of a safe, clean environment.
"What he did was an important and effective action," supporter Shea Wickelson said. "I hope to be part of voicing my opinion."
DeChristopher told a crowd gathered Thursday afternoon that the federal government with its massive concentration of political power keeps the masses in check through their reliance on consumer goods.
"If they don't keep people addicted to this system they can't keep us under control," he said.
