Anti-SUV protests are nothing new and have existed pretty much ever since the large vehicles—too large, to some—became increasingly popular in the 1990s and early 2000s. Those of us who were there remember the Hummer salute, for example. Calls for a ban on SUVs have surfaced now and again over the years. In 2019, anti-SUV activists protested at the Frankfurt auto show, calling out the “SUV-ization” of the industry. These protesters were glad to make their claims in public, where they were certain to be not only noticed but also apprehended.
Now, a new wave of attacks on SUVs is taking place way, way out of sight. Or, at least, that’s the idea. As first reported by The Drive, a decentralized group called the Tyre Extinguishers (the spelling hints at the group’s U.K. origins) is promoting the idea of deflating the tires of as many SUVs as possible to help make it “impossible to own a huge polluting 4×4 in the world’s urban areas.” By deflating enough tires on these “massive, unnecessary vehicles,” the group hopes to cause enough “inconvenience and expense for their owners” that people just stop driving big vehicles in crowded areas.
Groups claiming to be acting in the name of climate change have blocked highways and deflated the tires of vehicles across the country in recent days in protests that increasingly resemble the more aggressive tactics used by such activists in Europe.
When these “climate activists” are not deflating tires they protest in the middle of the road and attack random cars.
In this case in San Francisco, a group attacked a Honda Civic after they learned that the driver is white.
The group was organized by the Great Walkway Civil Disobedience Society.
They attacked the car and smashed his side windows using a skateboard, the driver decided to move forward throwing a couple of the protesters aside
The group called the car’s weapons:
Of course it wasn't all joyful, a number of drivers tried to force their way through, driving their weapons through this activated intersection.
These kids kept each other safe though, didn't need any cops or help from the city pic.twitter.com/o7PZU8bvIB

They even bragged about scaring people:
there’s a dude on nextdoor, who probably tried driving through, crying about y’all scaring him in his two ton death machine. https://t.co/SRCW7B7Tx5

Welcome to progressive America.
Social media censorship is suppressing the truth about the dangers of globalism and brutal cultures infiltrating the west. Please share this article wherever you can. It is the only way we can work around their censorship and ensure people receive news about issues that Democrats and the mainstream media suppress.
