The Empire Strikes Back! - Oil Traders curb stomp invading Green Peace Protestors

(via Cold Fury)

This comes on the heals of Wal-Mart flipping the bird to its whiny unionizing employees, and its been a good couple of weeks to be a capitalist. Green Peace is a lot of whiny, snivelers who function on nothing more than pseudo-science and breaking the law. Strangely while the left complains about how "fascist" the right is, they seem to think themselves above the law. Kind of strange how that works isn't it? After all you don't see people on the right taking to the streets to try and forcefully coerce anyone from halting their peaceful activities. Yet the "environmentalist" (the active part of that appellation seems to be "mental") and anti-globalization ilk seems to think interrupting peaceful trade and commerce, vandalizing businesses and destroying property is just fine and dandy.

Apparantly Green Peace thinks it can force entry into the International Petroleum Exchange and disrupt its proceedings with sirens, horns and chanting and being physically dissruptive. Apparantly they didn't count on the traders there being young, male and pissed off. Let alone the traders kicking the snot out of these spoiled eco-brats and ejecting them from the building.

WHEN 35 Greenpeace protesters stormed the International Petroleum Exchange (IPE) yesterday they had planned the operation in great detail.

“We bit off more than we could chew. They were just Cockney barrow boy spivs. Total thugs,” one protester said, rubbing his bruised skull. “I’ve never seen anyone less amenable to listening to our point of view.”
Another said: “I took on a Texan Swat team at Esso last year and they were angels compared with this lot.” Behind him, on the balcony of the pub opposite the IPE, a bleary-eyed trader, pint in hand, yelled: “Sod off, Swampy.”

They made their way to the trading floor, blowing whistles and sounding fog horns, encountering little resistance from security guards. Rape alarms were tied to helium balloons to float to the ceiling and create noise out of reach. The IPE conducts “open outcry” trading where deals are shouted across the pit. By making so much noise, the protesters hoped to paralyse trading.

But they were set upon by traders, most of whom were under the age of 25. “They were kicking and punching men and women indiscriminately,” a photographer said. “It was really ugly, but Greenpeace did not fight back.”

Mr Beresford said: “They followed the guys into the lobby and kept kicking and punching them there. They literally kicked them on to the pavement.”
A spokeswoman from IPE said the trading floor reopened at 3.10pm. “The floor was invaded by a small group of protesters,” she said. “Open outcry trading was suspended but electronic trading carried on.”

It almost brings a tear to my eye. This is the kind of England that once stood astride the world as a colossus. Finally, whining and mob thuggery gets its just deserts a sound beating and ejection from the premises, let it be a lesson to those anarchic anti-globalization yahoos who think themselves above the law.
