This is Not a Political Debate

On October 16, 1997, 60 members of the violent environmental organization Earth First terrorized two female staff members of Congressman Frank Riggs at his office in Eureka, California.

Wearing black ski masks and hoods, they dropped a 400 pound tree stump onto the office floor and four Earth First members chained themselves to the stump.

Meanwhile, other demonstrators dumped sawdust and woodchips on the office furniture and a carpet. A Riggs staffer said there was a “strong smell of urine” left on the office furniture.

Earlier, Earth First assaulted Montana Senator Conrad Burns by dumping a bucket of Bison entrails on him at a meeting. Earth First calls such acts “freedom of speech.”

It’s all OK, of course, because Earth First carries out its dirty little attacks in the name of saving the environment. Earth First even receives grants from the federal government for it “projects.”

Do you think such Neanderthals care about scientific facts as they drive to implement their anti-human environmental agenda? No, and neither do their brothers in the Sierra Club, the EPA or the White House
