“Who’s the more foolish; the fool, or the fool who follows him?” – Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: A New Hope.

This classic line brings us to our latest report on the death cult known as Extinction Rebellion (often branded as XR) and its climate change antics. The group’s protesters recently dressed as Star Wars characters and disrupted the London premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker before being dragged away by security.

The XR activists managed to sneak into the dedicated fans’ area outside Leicester Square’s famous cinema.

They then stormed the red carpet before lying down and holding up signs calling on film industry bosses to ‘tell the story of the climate crisis’.

Stars of the new film, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and other celebrities were quickly rushed off and unable to greet their fans.

So, once again, Extinction Rebellion antics have hurt the common people their efforts are supposed to be helping. Additionally, a group of filmmakers calling themselves Film Strike for Climate took part in this demonstration.

Alfie Warren-Knight, founder of #FilmStrikeforClimate explained the motives behind the red carpet invasion.

In a statement, he said: “At the world government summit in Dubai, Harrison Ford said ‘We are faced with, I believe, the greatest moral crisis of our time’.

“The film industry must use its influence and story-telling powers to help people around the world understand the urgency of the situation and to spark wide-spread public discussion about the climate and ecological emergency before it’s too late.

Great! Even more woke films! That should really help Hollywood establish some fun, new records in 2020!

With less than a week left in 2019, movie theaters aren’t doing as well as previous seasons – even with hit blockbusters out for the holiday rush.

U.S. box office revenues are expected to fall about 4 percent, which could be the sharpest decline in five years, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The report cited Comscore data, which projected North American box office revenue will reach $11.45 billion by the end of the year. If true, this amount would be 3.6 percent less than last year’s $11.88 billion.

And while London is desperately trying to address terrorism and real crime, the death cultists are celebrating that the police force has squandered $40 million in arresting and detaining its activists.

London’s Metropolitan Police have spent substantial amounts of money past their budget to arrest and imprison Extinction Rebellion (XR) activists this past year. XR wanted activists to get arrested to overburden the system to make government listen and it’s working.

From April until October of 2019 Met police spent $14,000 dollars on vegan food alone as they arrested activists by the thousands. Part of XR’s strategy was to “take police resources to the breaking point” and they’ve succeeded.

The Met’s Violent Crime Taskforce has an annual budget of $15 million a year yet it’s estimated that the protests from the Extinction Rebellion for a few short periods this year cost the department over $40 million dollars.

That enormous amount of over budget spending went to tens of thousands of police officers shifts and their overtime to deal with the massive amounts of protestors.

While I hope 2020 sees an end to the Dark Side of environmental activism, I suspect that Extinction Rebellion will continue being a wretched hive of villainy and self-absorption throughout the coming year.
