Radical Climate-Change Protests Coming Soon to a City Near You?

John Fund, National Review

Are European-style climate protests coming here? The real enablers of XR (Extinction Rebellion)’s extremism are the donors and celebrities who give it the money and publicity that allow it to attract fanatical followers. This humbug needs to be challenged. Average London commuters, thank goodness, finally started pushing back late last week, pointing out that poor, working-class people are most hurt if they can’t get to their jobs. If officials in Washington, D.C., and other cities want to avoid a similar fate, they should contact their British counterparts now and figure out how an American version of Extinction Rebellion can be neutralized.
