Twitter impales vandals who threw black paint on famous painting in Austria: ‘Prison is not enough’

Twitter users were shocked and outraged when climate activists attempted to destroy another masterpiece in the name of saving the environment.

On Tuesday, members of the climate activist group “Last Generation” poured what observers described as “black, oily liquid” on Gustav Klimt’s painting “Death and Life” at the Leopold Museum in Vienne, Austria.

Video of the incident showed two activists approaching the famous painting and one throwing the black liquid over the statue’s face. The activist who threw the liquid then turned to stunned observers and rattled off a speech about ending the use of fossil fuels.

The other activist could be seen trying to glue himself to the painting in an apparent attempt to make it more difficult for security to remove them. Footage showed a security guard intervening, struggling somewhat to remove the paint thrower from the premises as he continued to shout climate change propaganda.

The attempted vandalism in Vienna is just the latest in a series of high-profile climate change demonstrations against precious works of art. In England, a can of tomato soup was recently poured over one of Van Gogh’s masterpieces by climate activists.

Fortunately, these artworks are covered with protective barriers, preventing destruction from these stunts.

Still, the spectacle sparked outrage among social media users. Critics took to Twitter to express their anger at these vandals.

Conservative actor James Woods remarked, “You misspelled ‘Terrorists…'”

Conservative film critic Christian Toto addressed Hollywood by tweeting, “Hello, Hollywood activists…you may want to stand up for art sooner or later.”

Breitbart reporter Chris Tomlinson noticed a double standard in this stunt. He tweeted: “Activists who peacefully protested mass migration in Vienna were hounded by the full state violence, these idiots should probably get a medal from President Van der Bellen.”

Journalist Ian Miles Cheong commented on the clip: “Jail is not enough.”

Washington Examiner contributor Harry Khachatrian shared his idea of ​​how to deal with these protesters, saying, “They need to enforce mandatory minimum 25-year prison sentences without parole for vandalism and see how often this happens again.”

Radio host Grace Curley tweeted: “Stop calling these people ‘environmentalists’, let’s call them vandals.”

The Post Millennial’s editor-in-chief Libby Emmons demanded, “Keep these motherfuckers out of museums. They hate art and they hate humanity.”

Mediaite editor Caleb Howe called the vandals “the same as ISIS.”
