Just when you thought you could wake up Friday and not choose violence, the Twitterverse erupted over a video of two stupid, glorified children throwing paint at one of the most beautiful paintings ever created because they have no idea how climate change works.
Remember that trend where libs tried to cancel the word “stupid” because they thought it was hurtful? Well, it turns out that it’s probably the most accurate word to describe the so-called “activists” (criminals) who thought it would be helpful to throw Heinz tomato soup on Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” at the National Gallery in London and then glue themselves to the frame.
Thankfully, the painting was unharmed, according to the National Gallery, but the rage inside of my soul at seeing yet another dumbass who doesn’t understand climate change do something like this really set me off this morning.
My biggest question is not what the fuck is wrong with these kids. I want to know exactly what their parents did to mess up this badly and raise such insolent, stupid, spoiled and pointless members of our species. Only by learning from these mistakes do we have a hope of raising future generations with an intrinsic sense of right and wrong, respect, and hard work.

In a follow-up video, one of these clowns yells out to the gallery “What’s worth more, art or life?” Bless her heart. Clearly an adult hasn’t explained to her that even if we all stopped “polluting” the world right now, weather and nature would still be in a constant state of flux.
If you really want to survive whatever the planet is going to throw at our species, start being part of a solution focused on adaptation, you stupid little losers. Imagine if even just one of these children had done the work to become climate scientists or engineers, dedicating their lives to fixing problems, not just being them.
Or, even better, imagine they’d taken the time to do the necessary work to get really rich and then just buy huge swathes of land to protect it from development? But alas, no. They threw soup and yelled, taking every step necessary to ensure no one with real power ever takes their movement seriously.

I am so glad these tragic, pointless humans were arrested. If we do one thing this decade, it should be sending kids who do stuff like this, or, say, beat the crap out of someone in a Hooters, or pretty much any child/adult-aged person who acts like a toddler: all these kids should go to prison.
Not jail. Prison.
Also, both of these people need to be legally required to see a hairstylist. Their current salon clearly hates them, and even the worst of people shouldn’t have to look this tragic.
