British Group of Eco-Zealots Now Deflating SUV Tires Across U.S.

British Group of Eco-Zealots Now Deflating SUV Tires Across U.S.

The Tyre Extinguishers have slashed more than 5,000 tires since March.

As if American drivers don’t already have enough to worry about, now they are facing a new problem.

A British group of eco-zealots group called “The Tyre Extinguishers” are now in this country and claim they’ve deflated tires on dozens of SUVs in several major cities, including New York, Chicago, and the Bay Area.

The group, which says the thirsty SUVs significantly contribute to climate change, has no official leadership but encourages independent participation through social media and offers a hallmark note to be left on the victims’ cars.

Boasting about the action on Twitter, the group took the opportunity to share links to its manifesto.

As you might guess from the spelling, the group has its roots in the U.K. The BBC reports the activist group has deflated tires on hundreds of SUVs across London. Their primary targets have been high-wealth neighborhoods like Chelsea, Belgravia, and Notting Hill.

The Tyre Extinguishers already have an impressive tally, especially in areas with substantially less police presence in the wake of BLM-pandering.

The group, which publishes its slashing efforts online, took credit for deflating 40 tires in Manhattan last month. Members also targeted 20 vehicles in Chicago, 20 in Scranton and at least 23 in San Francisco.

Tire Extinguishers claims the group is also active in Arizona and Colorado, but hasn’t published slashing data for either state.

A Tire Extinguishers spokesperson told Fox News the group is working on it’s expansion across America.

‘It can happen anywhere, anytime,’ the spokesperson warned. ‘If you’re reading this and you own an SUV, scrap it before we get to it.’

There are vast swaths of this country that take private property rights seriously. I suspect that they won’t have nearly the ‘success’ once they hit Red States.

Apparently, not even the highly revered EV’s are safe from these nutjobs.

The Tyre Extinguishers don’t exclude electric vehicles (EV) from their actions, explaining such cars also have a major carbon footprint.

The group’s spokesperson forwarded Fox News Digital an email from an EV owner located in San Francisco, complaining their vehicle was targeted and demanding compensation.

“Are you people verifying whether the cars you’re slashing are electric vehicles or not? Or are you just targetting ALL SUVs?” the person wrote.

“Freaking geniuses,” they continued. “How do I get compensated for this?”

If Democrats want to really do some soul-searching as to why there is now a Great Realignment, they should watch this video. An African American woman from the Bay Area, a middle class coach who hauls around the children on her team and their equipment, was one of the victims of the eco-activist antics.

There is a serious possibility this stunt could lead to someone’s death. People have medical emergencies. Also, medical professionals need to be able to get to work. For example, another Bay Area resident struck by the Tyre Extinguishers is a nurse.

“I pulled over and got out of the car and my tire was totally flat,” said Ellis-Walker. “I noticed that a notice was on my vehicle saying that my vehicle was a ‘gas guzzler’ and they let out one or more of the air out the tires.”

It said they flattened at least one of the vehicle’s tires and reads, “don’t take it personally, it’s not you its your car … And its impact on our climate.”

The letter also warns that we should expect more of these incidents. It’s signed, “the tire extinguishers.”

“Honestly I was angry,” said Ellis-Walker.

Arguably, this group is practicing a form of eco-terrorism. Hopefully, they will be met with the appropriate level of resistance and legal consequences . . . rather than being rewarded for this lawless insanity.

    Likely they’re required to obey a subpoena

    Keep in mind that they are for now concentrating their efforts on US urban areas. These areas are Democrat ruled, and Democrat police will not investigate or arrest Leftists, nor will Democrat prosecutors charge them. They are literal “outlaws” in that they are outside the coverage of the law and not required to obey it.

      To be precise, the original semantics of “outlaw” is that they were outside the PROTECTION of the law. Would that this were true of these human zits, but it isn’t. Yet.

This will happen right up until one of them gets deflated by the owner. I suggest that they concentrate their efforts on large pickups in rural Texas.

    They aren’t that stupid. They will do it where the populace is disarmed.

    It’s not just vandalism, it’s terrorism. Attacking a person’s person or property because you hate. And it’s not “peaceful” or “only property”. At least one victim in the story didn’t realize she had a problem and drove her vehicle not realizing her tire was deflating – good way to have a bad accident. Not that different than cutting break lines to try to kill your spouse in such a case. Can you say “depraved indifference”?

    Reminds me also of a series of incidents a few years back in a local village (Baldwinsville, NY, yes the Baldwin Family’s home town).

    At the time the place was pretty much 99.9% white – and a spree of slashed tires hit the village. Folks would park to shop and come out to farked up tires. And the victims were always black. Went on for months with no witnesses and no arrests. Cops were useless. Finally one victim caught the perp in the act. Whereupon the perp slashed HIM seriously wounding him. Turned out it was a senior citizen who hated blacks and wanted them kept out. Small town so local judge set no jail time – he’s old ya know – as he played senile in court.

    I hope these asshats doesn’t find a compliant judge and prosecutor like that guy – it as it’s happening in Dem strongholds I won’t be too surprised if the same thing that happened to BLM and Antifa rioters happens to them
    – ie nothing.

    We live in the countryside. Try that on our truck, and they’d regret it.

I reported the tweet to twitter. Twitter is on notice
If they don’t remove the account, they should be liable for damages to any vehicles

These people need ventilation. If needed, with baseball bats.

“Arguably, this group is practicing a form of eco-terrorism.”

There is no room for argument (although certain people will argue anyway). It’s called “monkey-wrenching” and it should be thought of as the gateway drug of terrorism.

So now being a left-wing nut give you the right to vandalize others’ property. Time to treat this mental illness.

A lithium bath, a live aid concert in a rare Earth depository, a seance held in a renewable graveyard, a forage through a Green blight environment, would change their perspective.

Merrick Garland seen enthusiastically cheering them of course which made him to busy to build a task force to stop this organized attack on private property rights across multiple states.

“If I buy an SUV, will it be vandalized by climate protesters?”

A better question:

“If I’m a climate protester and get caught cutting tires what will happen to me?”

So how do these clowns go from car to gar? Are they riding horses? Riding bikes? Walking? Or are these hypocritical cowards riding in – a car? How did these mental midgets get to the US from looney london? Did they swim, or fly? Why aren’t they deflating tires of airliners?

Edit, car to car

These idiots are appropriately and fairly characterized as foreign terrorists. If the utterly corrupt and politically biased FBI wasn’t so zealously engaged in acting as the de facto secret police arm of the Dumb-o-crat Party, sabotaging GOP candidates and officeholders and searching for phantom and contrived notions of alleged “white supremacists” and “Christian nationalists,” I’d have confidence that they could deal with the problem. But, as the 2020 Dumb-0-crat insurrection demonstrated — when the Dumb-o-crats’ terrorist cadres of “Anti-fa” and “Black Lives Matter” rampaged, murdered and wrought destruction across the U.S., with total impunity and free of any substantive prosecution — our federal law enforcement agencies have given Leftist/Dumb-o-crat terrorists and thugs carte blanche to visit their violent predations upon American citizens.

Interesting how such criminals always hide behind anonymity. They are cowards of the first order.

Are you people verifying whether the cars you’re slashing are electric vehicles or not? Or are you just targetting ALL SUVs?” the person wrote.

“Freaking geniuses,” they continued. “How do I get compensated for this?”

Hey freaking genius, sounds like you are ok with them destroying gas car tires but they came for YOU
They will always come for you….

Kneecap, meet baseball bat.

I seem to remember that there used to be an organization that had the motto Fiat justitia ruat caelum.

Hey, I have a good way to deal with them.
Just shadow ban them.
Problem solved!

    Please stop advocating violence while at LI; that way you won’t feel that you’ve been “shadow banned.” If you want to advocate violence on your own site, please feel free to do so; you cannot do that here. Is this clear to you?

      scooterjay in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | July 16, 2022 at 9:12 pm

      Okay. Please stop the burning, looting and murdering of innocents with your microphone that is obviously bigger than mine…the only weapon I have.

        You’re a long-time LI reader and commenter, so you know that we do not condone nor permit violent rhetoric here. It’s not rocket science, Scooter. Advocate violence, engage in ad hominem attacks on other LIers, and etc. (you know the drill, it’s the same drill it’s always been), and that comment is removed. Nothing has changed on our end. What has on yours?

      DSHornet in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | July 17, 2022 at 7:41 am

      Fuzzy, I don’t get it. Violence?

      If they can’t communicate they can’t spread their gospel of property destruction.
      .

        Scooter has advocated violence against the United States government on LI; this is out of bounds and could cause us serious legal peril. We’re not okay with that. If Scooter wants to advocate violence, he is free to do that elsewhere.

I’ve read about this group last week. They claim that they are NOT slashing tires, just deflating from the valve stem. Therefore, in their eyes (and twisted minds), they’re not causing damage or vandalism, just an inconvenience. I don’t know if that is what is happening here in the USA.

In the same article, they claim that they’re just targeting wealthy people. Well, most ‘wealthy people’ probably have some sort of roadside assistance. Heck, my normal car insurance comes with roadside assistance. So, what they don’t realize it that their actions would probably cause MORE emissions with a service truck coming out to inflate the tires.

What I would do if this happened to me, I’d video the truck arriving and asking the service guy to leave it running. I’d also have my vehicle idling while he inflates the tires. Then post it laughing that this environmental group just caused MORE emission from 2 vehicles, not just the one. AND if the truck were diesel, I’d let the service guy know what’s going on and ask if he could ‘Roll Some Coal’ for the good folks at “Tyre Extinguishers”.

One final thought, are there people from England here in the good ol’ USA doing this? If so, how did they get here from across the pond? Raft? Solar powered plane? I know they’re trying to recruit lemmings over here, but unless they’re doing remote conferencing, if they are here in person, spreading the joy, they’re complicit in adding to CO2 if they flew over.

    You have to understand that these are Leftist totalitarian agitators. They care less than zero for any cause that they publicly espouse. Their sole, and highest, goal is the absolute destruction of any civilization and society where they do not rule by decree with no restrictions. You can no more convince them to change their mind on any item where there is a Party Line, than you can expect an honest vote count in a Democrat polity.
