(PoliticalLookout.com)- Remember Extinction Rebellion? They’re the far-left agitators that were ruining our lives before Black Lives Matter reared its ugly head again.
Only days after the extremist left-wing environmentalist group stormed runways in France, Swedish Extinction Rebellion activists took to the runaways of the Angelholm-Helsingborg airport in Sweden, blocking a SAS airlines flight and causing travel chaos for people already affected by the COVID-19 lockdown.
Can’t these crazy people just leave us alone?
The incident occurred just as European airlines start operating again, recommencing commercial services and allowing people to start getting back to their normal lives. It’s a crucial time not just for the airline industry as a whole, but for businesses and individuals who rely on these airlines to go about their daily lives and business.
On Monday at roughly 7:30 p.m., several activists ran onto the runway and stood in the way of a SAS Airlines plane that was preparing to fly domestically. The protest group claimed that they were opposed the government bailouts of the airline.

It should come as no surprise to anybody who has followed Extinction Rebellion in recent years. The left-wing extremist group, that hails a Swedish teenager (Greta Thunberg) as its God, has long suggested that the airline industry be scrapped entirely. They hair planes so much that Thunberg herself traveled to the United States by yacht last year, from Europe, to attend climate change conferences.
Thunberg has refused to disappear during the COVID crisis, too. After appearing as an “expert” on a COVID discussion panel on CNN, the Swedish teenager is now appearing in the national press to explain why she thinks climate change is “as urgent” as coronavirus.
Swedish police said that at least ten activists were on the scene, and they were removed not long after 8 p.m. One of the extremists is understood to have glued her hands to the plane, a tactic often used by the group on trains and other vehicles.
“About ten people manifested at the site, five of them in connection with the plane and the others in the terminal building,” Swedish officers said.
