Climate Activist Group Vows to Shut Down Upcoming Congressional Baseball Game

Climate Activist Group Vows to Shut Down Upcoming Congressional Baseball Game

“conventional tactics are not enough” and it is “time to escalate”

A left wing group calling itself the ‘Now or Never Collective’ is vowing to shut down the Congressional baseball game later this month as an act of protest over the lack of meaningful climate change legislation.

This is just the latest example of radical behavior from the left, which seems increasingly desperate.

FOX News reports:

Climate activists plan to disrupt Congressional Baseball Game

Climate activists are planning to disrupt this year’s annual Congressional Baseball Game.

In a new video posted to social media, the Now or Never collective said that Congress has “one last shot” to pass historic climate legislation.

“It’s time to leave everything on the field,” it wrote.

If politicians have “failed to deliver,” the group said it would shut down the game.

“We will not stand by, watching them play baseball while the world burns,” Now or Never said…

Now or Never is choosing to engage in direct action, it noted, because “conventional tactics are not enough” and it is “time to escalate.”

Watch their video below:

If the choices of date and venue here sound familiar, they should.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

On Five-Year Anniversary of Shooting, Leftists Again Threaten Congressional Baseball Game

Left-wing activists are threatening to shut down the Congressional Baseball Game five years after a far-left gunman shot up the bipartisan event, almost killing House Republican Whip Steve Scalise…

“On July 28th, we will converge en masse on the Congressional Baseball Game. If our politicians have failed to deliver, we will shut it down,” Now or Never’s website says. “We will not stand by, watching them play games while the world burns. Everything we love is at stake. Our safety, our future, our one and only home. It’s time to leave everything on the field.”

Those threats come five years after James Hodgkinson, a former campaign volunteer for socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), showed up at Republicans’ practice for the game and shot Scalise, a congressional staffer, a lobbyist, and two Capitol Police officers. All of the victims survived, though Scalise was seriously injured. Police officers shot and killed Hodgkinson in a gunfight.

Does anyone believe this is a coincidence? More importantly, if it isn’t a coincidence, isn’t this a threat of violence?

Now or Never is choosing to engage in direct action, it noted, because “conventional tactics are not enough” and it is “time to escalate.”

so shooting congressmen is “not enough”? What can we do to escalate the issue?

One day these clowns will round a corner and get a dose of their own medicine.

Sounds like some kind of insurrection?Throw ’em in the D.C. jail for a few years.

    Without trial of course. It’s only fair after all. 😉

    Free fire situation for congressional police.

    There’s a thing I never thought I’d be saying after the murder of Ashli Babbitt.

Right. Because no one would ever be at all paranoid about terrorism at the congressional baseball game1

How are they getting there? I’m almost certain they aren’t walking and eating grasses off the side of the road.
Maybe they’re biking in from the suburbs? But where would they get green bicycles? I don’t know of a single totally green bicycle made from downed limbs and fallen rotted trees.
Be nice if the msm would actually ask them how they plan to get there and what they’re eating.

Pretenders. If they really cared they would be protesting China.

Twitter banning them in 3, 2, 1, 0, -1, -2, -3, …

Maybe the Khaki Brigade (Patriot Front) will show up and kick their butts because, you know, they’re Trump supporters. Or something.

There’s a scene from Once Upon A Time In America where a bunch of bikers invite themselves into a community bar. The bar owner aka boss man tells them to enjoy a beer and then leave. Of course, the stereotypical “biker” have to make a scene. Then the good part as the bar owner locks the front door and the “hooligans” realize that they cannot leave.

When congressional ball park event is convened, invite all non congressional attendants to pass through an airport style inspection facility on the way to the seating area… or to simply leave the facility.

Hell, I would start the security detection area about a mile away for early screening. At least it provides space to tow trucks to remove vehicles that discovered to contain “contraband”, get some legitimate information on the owner/operators of vehicles and help everyone in making well informed choices about how to spend the day.

‘Escalate. Prior (peaceful?) tactics weren’t effective.’ The last time someone decided to shut down Congressional baseball a leftist Bernie bro shot up the field nearly killing a Congressman.

When people tell you their intent it’s prudent to believe them and take it seriously while working to defeat them.

““We will not stand by, watching them play baseball while the world burns,” Now or Never said…”

This is the sort of behavior one expects from those who are convinced they know The Truth. It’s not what one expects from scientists but what one expects from a cult.

As for “Now or Never said…” I really doubt that something called “Now or Never said anything. What happened was, a person said something. Do you think, Sir Journalist, you could tell us who that was?

Well I guess that’s a step down from using them for target practice for a change.

Some day my side will take matters into their own hands, and “Now or Never” will be no more.

I look forward to living a life free of them.

With luck (and a little foresight), the GOP team will hand out “commemorative” baseball bats to all the spectators they invited.
