Chaos Erupts as Climate Protesters Storm Murkowski Speech, Bodies Sent Flying off Stage

A group of leftist climate protesters stormed the stage during a speech by Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), causing chaos to erupt.

Protesters from climate activist group Climate Defiance disrupted Murkowski’s speech at the Bryce Harlow Foundation gala and awards dinner on Thursday.

Video of the incident has now emerged online and shows several people tumbling off the stage during the scuffle that ensued.

The chaos was captured on video and Climate Defiance posted it on X.

The group was seemingly elated to have shut down the speech.

WATCH:

Murkowski is regarded as a moderate Republican and not the type of lawmaker climate activists would normally target.

She is from the state of Alaska, however, which means she necessarily supports fossil fuel production.

Climate Defiance defines itself as “resisting fossil fuel production” on its X profile.

The climate group also posted a statement about its actions.

“We just shut down a gala honoring U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski,” Climate Defiance said in a social media post.

“Murkowski is a murderer.

“She incinerates us to enrich her cronies.

“As Chevron’s top lobbyist gave her an award, we stepped in and stopped the ceremony.

“Respect us or expect us.”

The Bryce Harlow Foundation gala intended to reward “contributions to business-government relations.”

Murkowski was making remarks after accepting an award in that vein.

Climate Defiance seemed proud of the chaos it created, even though its members ended up dumped unceremoniously off the stage and were not really able to complete the disruption they no doubt intended.

Murkowski didn’t comment about the disruption.

The group called Murkowski an “ecocidal pyromaniac” for her support of the Willow Project.

The project is a massive oil drilling scheme in Alaska that the group has called “cruel and barbaric beyond description.”

According to Fox Digital, the activist group was invited to a private meeting with Democrat President Joe Biden’s senior “clean energy czar” John Podesta in December.

Podesta met with the group despite its disruption of White House events.

Climate Defiance has disrupted the events pf senior White House officials including Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo.

After the meeting with Podesta, the group posted a letter it shared with him on social media.

“Thank you for taking the time to meet with us today,” the group wrote.

“We appreciate your willingness to heed our deeply-held concerns.

“Echoing the voices of millions of Americans, we write to you in the eleventh hour of the greatest threat that humanity has ever faced: planetary and societal collapse due to the continued burning of fossil fuels.”

“We urge you to wield your utmost authority to implement a swift end to any federal support for new fossil fuel infrastructure.

“Both the urgency of this action and the severe consequences of further delay cannot be overstated,” it continued.

“Climate Defiance recognizes your commitment to climate action and commends you on your vital work developing and implementing the Inflation Reduction Act.”

Conveniently, the radical climate group’s demands perfectly align with Biden’s green agenda.
