Food Fight? Climate Activists VANDALIZE Million Dollar Art Pieces To Promote Cause
In a new sweeping trend, so-called climate activists have been throwing food onto prized and historic art pieces to draw attention to their cause.
In Germany, a group of paid protestors threw mashed potatoes on Claude Monet’s “Haystacks,” which last sold for $110 million.
The piece was on display at the Barberini Museum in Potsdam.
We make this #Monet the stage and the public the audience.

Obviously this weird display is drawing some sort of attention to climate activism (albeit likely the wrong kind of eyeballs), because protestors keep doing this sort of thing.
At the famous Madame Tussaud’s in London, “Just Stop Oil” climate activists smashed a pie in the face of a wax King Charles.
Notably, this was odd because Charles is a known supporter of reducing climate change. He even wants to put masks on cows to catch their burps.

Earlier this month, the outside of an Aston Martin dealership was vandalized by another protester aiming to draw attention to climate change.
As you can hear from someone off screen, most normal civilians see no linkage between these acts and the climate change cause itself. They seemingly make no sense – nor do they amount to any kind of real change.
“What are you gonna do, spray pink next time?” the person says to the man spray painting the building.
“You can tell from the tank top! You look like a clown! Such a clown! You are a clown! Such a clown!” he added.

Here is the same vandal lying on the ground after the police finally showed up.
The protestors are calling for the government to stop all new oil and gas licences and consents.

“You’re a child in an adult’s body. Did your parents never say ‘no’ to you? Did your parents never say ‘no’ to you, son? Publicity seeking child!” someone offscreen says in the clip above.
In one more example, two climate protesters defiled Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” at the National Gallery. Then they glued themselves to the wall.

Of course, this form of protest is lame and counterproductive.
As the “Just Stop Oil” Twitter account would argue: “Is art worth more than life? More than food? More than justice? The cost of living crisis and climate crisis is driven by oil and gas.”
One thing is for certain, these sorts of public displays of lunacy are definitely attracting attention. But it’s doubtful they are going to lead to any real change in the future – just a whole lot of fines and measly arrests.
These climate activists need better marketing. Or maybe a real job.
