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.
