Court Frees Eco-Vandals Who Attacked Painting to Avoid “Chilling Effect” on Vandalizing Art

Why do leftists feel like they vandalize classic art with impunity? Because they run the system.

“Treason doth never prosper, what’s the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it Treason.”

Left-wing terrorism likewise never prospers, because if it prospers, it’s just the government.

Why do leftists feel like they can pull down statues, attack federal buildings, shut down airports, stage nationwide race riots, and vandalize classic art with impunity?

Because they are the regime. They’re simply outside arms of the regime accelerating its work for it. And while the regime will rarely say it. It will, for example, swear up and down on a stack of little red books that there were no race riots (mostly peaceful), that Islamic terrorism doesn’t exist (just misunderstandings) and that Stalin was just a misunderstood idealist who didn’t kill anyone (neither did Fidel or Mao), but sometimes when caught absolutely red-handed, the regime will explain that it actually wants leftist violence to achieve its goals.

You may remember the eco-vandals who have been attacking art masterpieces around the world.

A Dutch court of appeals has decided that a small group of climate activists who received two month in jail for gluing themselves to Johannes Vermeer‘s The Girl with the Pearl Earring no longer need to serve their sentence.

According to CNN, the court said that the three activists, who are part of the protest group Just Stop Oil Belgium, spent 23 days in holding cells leading up to the trial. The court ruled that additional prison time “would have been excessive.”

The court added that doling out a severe punishment might have a “chilling effect,” and that it wanted to ensure that those who want to peacefully protest or exercise their right to freedom of expression aren’t discouraged.

Suffice it to say that if the vandals had been attacking art (or even painted some graffiti) to protest against EU carbon taxes or Muslim migration, every book in Europe would have been thrown at them with zero concern about a “chilling effect”.

But with its own red kind, the court comes out and states that it doesn’t want to discourage more eco-vandals from trying to destroy the effects of the industrial revolution.

It’s worried that actually enforcing the law against its own ideological allies might have a “chilling effect” on such peaceful protests as vandalizing classic art.

Why doth domestic terrorism never prosper? Why if it prosper, none will call them domestic terrorists.
