But we’re the “extremists”.

Masked protesters carrying torches and threatening organized violence protested outside the home of an executive at a major oil pipeline company last week.

Eight environmental activists gathered on the lawn of Mark Maki, a member of the Enbridge Energy Company’s board of directors and president of Enbridge Energy Management, to protest the arrests of three anti-pipeline activists last year.

The protesters, who brandished torches for a photo posted online, held a sign warning, “solidarity means attack” and “we will shut you down.”

Maki stepped out of his Houston, Texas, home to talk with the protesters, though he said he was not familiar with their grievances.

The eco-freaks feel morally justified in being violent to make a point. They are no different than the radical Islamists in that regard. Soon, they will all probably be just as violent too.

Most of them aren’t even clear about what they’re protesting. They’re a rabid pack of dogs trained to growl at the words “oil” or “fracking”.

Pity that the executive opted to chat them up rather than have them arrested.

Gun? Flamethrower, y'all! Then dare someone to prove it wasn't an accident. Darn fools were carryin' torches, don'tcha know, so if someone set someone else on fire, well, lay down with dogs, fleas, all that.

Hmmm, I see a chain link fence behind them which means they are not just outside his home but on his property. Though they don't mention it, I would guess he didn't walk out alone. I'm sure there were plenty of armed guards very close by plus, this being Texas, I'm sure he had a gun on him even if he didn't show it. One bad move by the protesters and I'm sure we would be reading their obits soon.

For this event, the target stepped out and spoke with the fools. The next time, he may step out armed and remind them about the law on deadly force. I might have done it the first time.

You show up on my lawn waving a torch around and you -- well, your heirs -- will learn about Castle Doctrine and that arson is a violent felony.

While its likely to be what they want -- so some drug-addled musician can write a hit song about "Four Dead in Texas" -- it's also likely to discourage repeats.

I would have walked up to them with a gun. Had they been on my property, it would have been pointed at them. Had they made any sudden moves, they would have been dead useful idiots.

Designed to get the leftist hordes used to violence, so next time they'll take it just a bit further. Soon one or two people will be killed, then next it's Krystalnacht. Then full on revolution, with Bill Ayers' death camps.

Wish we had "activists" on the lawn of "journalists" who lie and cover for this Barack Chavez Obama administration.
