Extinction Rebellion: Prophecy of doom and mass extinction has all the hallmarks of a doomsday cult.
According to Extinction Rebellion:
“We are facing an unprecedented global emergency. Life on Earth is in crisis: scientists agree we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown, and we are in the midst of a mass extinction of our own making.”
What is Extinction Rebellion?
According to Wikipedia:
“Extinction Rebellion (abbreviated as XR) is an environmental pressure group with the stated aim of using civil disobedience to compel government action on climate breakdown, biodiversity loss, and the risk of social and ecological collapse.”
In November 2018, XR blocked five bridges across the River Thames in London.
In April 2019, XR occupied Parliament Square, Piccadilly, Marble Arch, Oxford Circus, and Waterloo Bridge — all prominent sites in central London.
There were also other protests throughout the country.
The intention of the activists was clear: To cause the maximum amount of disruption and publicity.
In an article titled ‘Our April Arrestees in Numbers’, Extinction Rebellion (XR) boasted about how many of their ‘rebels’ were arrested, the number of hours of police overtime, and how much money the authorities spent on policing the ‘rebellion’.
Last week in London, XR activists blocked bridges and major roads, causing significant disruption.
The Metropolitan Police chief said that the protests have ‘stretched’ police resources in London.
Extinction Rebellion has convinced its activists that they must accept arrest and even imprisonment because it’s all in a good cause.
The climate activists believe that if they don’t act now, then we will all face mass extinction very soon.
Some young people have dropped out of university because they want to devote all their time to ‘saving the planet’.
Many young women in the Extinction Rebellion cult have indicated they will never have children because of the supposed apocalypse.
A warning from history
Extinction Rebellion (XR) has all the trappings of a doomsday cult.
These cults work on fear, and XR is no exception.
Therefore, the prophecy of doom is essential for a doomsday cult.
In 1978 in Guyana, 918 people died in a mass murder-suicide by drinking cyanide-laced drinks at the request of cult leader Jim Jones.
More than 300 children died in the carnage, known as the Jonestown Massacre — the largest mass ‘suicide’ in modern history.
The cult leader Jim Jones, a persuasive but paranoid speaker, often preached a prophecy of doom — an impending nuclear apocalypse.
