Volkswagen Gets It Right

| October 22, 2022

 

If you follow the news in Europe, environmental protests have been numerous and public:

A relentless outfit called Just Stop Oil in the UK has created disruptions everywhere from major highways to the British Formula 1 Grand Prix, and more recently, they threw tomato soup on a Van Gogh painting at the National Gallery in London. Across the Channel, the Tour de France cycling race was forced to pause during several stages by climate activists who’d glued themselves to the road.

Most recently, some of the lads decided to protest at the VW museum and glued their hands to the floor in the Porsche exhibit area Thursday.

The protesters have several requests for VW Group CEO Oliver Blume as listed in a Twitter thread about the event, among them: support for capping the maximum speed on German highways to 100 kilometers per hour (62 mph); hastening VW’s moves to lower its carbon emissions; canceling the debt and interest payments “owed to VW by the Global South”; and “pressure the [government] to comply with our demands.” Such protests are happening so often that there’s now a standard back-and-forth. A group disrupts traffic or makes a scene. Authorities are called in almost immediately. The media follow, capturing the ruckus as protesters are unglued or unchained or coaxed down.

Well, the staff decided to handle things a bit differently:

Instead of calling Wolfsburg police immediately, staff “recognized the right to protest,” then closed the pavilion for the evening and left — turning off the light and heat as they walked out.

One protester was removed for medical reasons. The rest stayed till Friday.

One protester who said of staff, “They refused our request to provide us with a bowl to urinate and defecate in a decent manner while we are glued,” and, “We can’t order our food, we must use the one provided by Volkswagen. Lights off. Random unannounced checks by security guards with bright torches.”

MSN, all

Food and welfare checks? What more could VW have done? “Bathrooms? Sure….right over there.”

Saw a nice video recently. Same brand of idiots glued themselves to the street in Paris. Cops stooped down, got a firm grip on their wrists and pulled. The screams were awesome

The picture above of the VW Bug brought back some memories. My first ever new car was a yellow 1971 Super Beetle for $1999 (as I recall, lol). Bought here on L.I.

I bought a brand new red 1970 Super Beetle in Germany in early 1970. I shipped it back to New Jersey for $105.00. It cost me only about $1600. Sold it to a friend when home on leave with only 6K on the odometer, just before I left for the Viet of the Nam.

Did you buy the the large key with the suction cup that was put on the rear engine hood and when turned made a cranking noise. We had one mounted on the main engine/turbine housing down in the Okinawa’s engine room and when the Mustang Chief Engineer saw it, all he said was Goddammit get it off after one of the Snipes told him that it was the key to the main engine.

Arrived in Schweinfurt back in 1983. I bought a ’72 VW Westphalia camper (American specs) for $500 from a CPT that was leaving. It had some rust and the fridge didn’t work but it served me well including trips back and forth to Grafenwöhr when the Bradley Battalion I supported was training. Had a DF authorizing me to transport weapons in it if I was shuttling troops on my trips.

Sold it for $400 when I left for Drum in 86. I still kick myself for not shipping it back. Waiting to see pics and prices for the 2024 VW ID Buzz van.

My neighbor just bought one, restored it, and sold it on EBay for over $35K.

Kudos to VW for ignoring these moonbats, and letting them wallow in their own filth. Hope they were all well soiled and hungry by the time they gave it up.

Also….
Apparently these Gluers have a “support staff”. (who knew?) After the doors were locked, and the place was shut down for the night, anytime the support staff went out for food, clean clothes, etc…..oops!…….they weren’t allowed back in to the area. Those doors stayed shut and locked for the night. Awwwwww……..

As I gaze into my cracked and cloudy crystal ball, I foresee more of this type of blowback as TPTB realize that these Gluers are nothing more than a VERY small minority, who speak only for the minority Libtard fringe left.

Several things I can think of to do to these Gluers as they are stuck in place, involving: knives, nail guns, ammonia or other noxious liquids, walking in boots, signs (Do Not Feed or Interact With The Hairless Primate), mocking, ignoring………

Let them glue themselves to the sidewalk at say, a Biker Rally and see how many of them get pissed on when LE isn’t looking!

Oh, please YES!

Remember Sturgis, Antifa?

Just a dozen or so more of y’all and you’ll sway them to your cause!

Super duper promise!

I would be guzzling Beer and afterward pissing all over them while telling the little maggots that it’s raining.

Finally.
I’d bring in a tape of SERE’s Greatest Hits on a loop and a boom box maxxed out, just out of reach.

Boots, boots, boots, boots, moving’ up and down again…

Wonder if anyone living in surrounding areas such as I-95 (Beltway, DC, Pentagon, NYC) would put up with these Morons.

Sure since most likely they are the ones doing it if these are demoRatic controlled cities.

It would be more like; “Taking your wallet, haha!”

Interesting that the “protestors” did not glue their hands to the displayed vehicles.

It never stops.

We don’t understand this one. Please read the last paragraph.

“Social Security Will Now Allow People to Select Their Gender in Records”

https://www.nytimes.com/2022/10/19/us/social-security-gender-identity.html

“The new policy enables transgender Americans to change their records to reflect how they identify themselves.”

“The Social Security Administration announced on Wednesday that people will now be allowed to select the sex that best aligns with their gender identity in records, a policy change intended to be more inclusive of transgender Americans.”

“The agency said it would now accept people’s self-identified gender identity of male or female, even if their identity documents show otherwise, and it is exploring a future policy that would allow for an “X” sex designation for people who do not identify as either male or female.

Looking to get roughed up for a payday is a bad technique. Sometimes it ends poorly.
I don’t advocate violence, but sometimes accidents aren’t…

Props for height and hang time, but I’ll take points off for style.

Shouldn’t the protesters be HIT with a felony. nothing wrong with hitting protesters like the one who ran over the people in nyc a year or two ago and what was he charged with./Sarc

A fitting response by Volkswagen, A.G. the automotive manufacturing group consisting of Audi, Porsche, Lamborghini, Bentley, Ducati, Volkswagen, and other well-known automotive brands.

Know who else was a VW fan?

Speaking of the not-so-fun-partei,,,

Apparently Ethan Klein fell to his own medicine.

(if this is slightly esoteric or out of your purview, don’t stress ’bout it. Just know Mister Klein used to be edgy and seemed pro-Liberty… then wasn’t, hard)

Ferry Porsche apparently had to design a car for the French just to get his father Dr. Ing Ferdinand Porsche sprung from the cold castle the French had locked him in after accusing Porsche of war crimes. Ferdinand would live just a few more years as the imprisonment had broken his health.

FUCK the little moonbats and I also say KUDOS to Volkswagen for doing that! I fondly remember the diesel Rabbit my family had during my teen years, that car not only had plenty of get-up-and-go, it of course ran next to forever on a tank of fuel.

Disgusting. C’mon man, horse lives matter! Where the phuq is PETA at?
