A group of eco-terrorists interfered in Britain’s Grand National steeplechase horse race last weekend claiming that the horse racing industry somehow causes climate change.
The Grand National has been a British tradition since 1839. It has been held nearly every year since, and was only canceled during the peak years of WWII, from 1941 to 1945.
But these halfwits want it to end forever.
For many fans, the Grand National is a national institution in the UK. It’s considered the greatest steeplechase, and the endurance course includes 30 jumps over fences, water and open ditches. It is definitely hard on horses, two of which died last year, many more through the years. The animal rights groups Animal Rising claims the race represents the “broken relationship” between humans and nature.” And it’s the “root cause of our climate and ecological crises.” Talk about a wild leap!
Multiple people plan to heal that relationship by preventing the race from starting. An Animal Rising statement said teachers, nurses and others will demonstrate “for all life and really beginning the crucial conversation about our broken relationship with other animals.”
This sets up a showdown between the eco-nuts and a robust force that annually polices this Grand National. Local police and the race sponsor, the Jockey Club, have been preparing for months to ensure the safety of participants.
“We respect the right to peaceful protest and expression of views, but public order or criminal offenses will not be tolerated and will be dealt with robustly,” a police spokesperson said.
Apparently, everything causes climate change to these psychos.
