“I’m certain you’ll agree that detonating school kids … into gory pulp for ignoring their carbon footprints is attention-grabbing.” – Britain’s Guardian Newspaper
“What to do with those people [climate change skeptics] … maybe a little amputating would be a good place to start?” – 10:10 Founder and Film Maker Franny Armstrong
Yes, you read that correctly – one of Britain’s largest newspapers and an internationally known activist and filmmaker have advocated the maiming and killing of children and those they disagree with via a reprehensible short film titled, “No Pressure”. Now before you start shaking your head that we don’t understand irony or edginess, or that we lack a sense of humor, let’s make it clear what we are talking about here. In the name of “stabilizing global emissions” and “saving the world”, a “mini-movie” has been made that depicts, in graphic fashion, a teacher, boss, soccer coach, and studio tech pressing a red button that incinerates others that disagree with them about the need to “cut their carbon emissions”. This repulsive film is gratuitously gory, sickeningly preachy, but most important, tries to instill a sense of humor in the idea that one can be summarily executed for disagreeing with others about a political/environmental position.
I think the best way to proceed is to have you view the piece. Here it is:
As mentioned before, we’re sure some of you are snickering and wondering how we could be so obtuse as to not get the humor and irony of such an inciteful film about such an important topic. Well, if you find this little movie provocative or moving or anything other than patently offensive, shame on you. Whether you believe in the idea that humans are adversely affecting the climate and need to cut their CO2 emissions or are skeptical about these claims, we should all agree that having a laugh about blowing up children or co-workers is not funny, it’s just sick.
It strikes us that those who profess to be progressive or liberal and who might be concerned about “carbon emissions” are also the ones that preach to all of us about the need for “tolerance” in all things. Tolerance of other races, religions, sexual preferences and other lifestyle choices is as important and obvious as loving our family. However, tolerance of political, enviromental or policy goals that are at odds with theirs is grounds for … what? – shunning, ostracizing, violence, murder? Please don’t preach to us about tolerance if you in any way can condone this shocking, gore-filled, hateful piece of “cinema”.
The founder of the group that made this film, 10:10, is a woman named Franny Armstrong. Part of her justification for making this film is that “we have got about four years to stabilise global emissions” and that “300,000 real people … now die each year from climate change”. Ms. Armstrong may be woefully misinformed about the facts, but the likelihood is that she is just telling a bald-faced lie to promote her agenda. Neither of these statements are truthful in any way and they continue a campaign by climate change alarmists to lie, cheat and steal to push forth their agenda to control our lives, wreck our economies, and prevent developing nations from raising their populations out of grinding poverty.
For sinking to new lows in an already deceitful campaign to misinform the world about our ever-changing climate, we emphatically say:
“Oh no you didn’t say that!”
