Meet Leo Murray, @crisortunity.

Leo is a British environmental activist, co-founder of 10:10 Climate Action + mastermind behind the Trump Baby, @TrumpBabyUK balloon.

Take a look at @1010’s “No Pressure” campaign video below.

⚠️ NSFW - They literally blow kids up.

Here’s another link for the same video that doesn’t require age consent / YouTube sign-in to view.

See full accompanying caption for “No Pressure” by @1010 before they took the video down below.…

My favorite is DEFINITELY the last line:
“No Pressure" celebrates everybody who is actively tackling climate change... by blowing up those who aren't."

Because nothing says humanitarian quite like blowing up anybody who doesn’t do what you say!

Here’s @1010’s “apology”:
They. thought. a. video. literally. blowing. schoolchildren’s. heads. off. was: “EXTREMELY FUNNY”.

Which brings us back to Leo Murray, @crisortunity, co-founder of @1010, and his Trump Baby balloon, @TrumpBabyUK.

Here’s the “reasoning” behind it, in Leo’s own words.👇🏼
Summary excerpt below.

The first sentence is the most telling:
“To really get through to Trump, you have to get down to his level and talk to him in a language he understands: personal insults.”

ANY trained psychologist will tell you this tactic is not only ineffective, but can be dangerous.
So let me get this straight - @crisortunity co-founder + Director of Strategy @1010 Climate Action, an organization that produced a propaganda film BLOWING ACTUAL SCHOOLCHILDREN’S HEADS OFF to, and I quote,
“celebrate everybody who is actually tackling climate change... by blowing up those who aren’t.” believes HIS opinion is a reliable litmus test for what is or is not “unconscionable” and he’s in ANY position to call anyone a “humanitarian disaster”??

Nah. Not today. Not ever.

But hey, quick question @crisortunity/@TrumpBabyUK & @1010 - You guys are SUPER concerned with climate change + the environment, right?? So why, exactly, would you decide to go with a giant HELIUM balloon?

Non-renewable resources are self-explanatory.
@threadreaderapp, please unroll. Thank you.

@zdogg8 @ThomasWictor Right... well, unfortunately, the @DailyMailUK is about 13 days late + several million dollars short.

A cursory Google search would’ve shown you that, but by all means, allow me. See “How the Media Works” by Angie Chapman below.

It’s a pop-up book!!

@zdogg8 @ThomasWictor @DailyMailUK The article you linked was published 6/25/18.
@zdogg8 @ThomasWictor @DailyMailUK The “story” started here (6/12/18), based on conjecture.

Notice how they’re very careful to say military “officials” and bury the fact that Mattis HAD been consulted in the middle of the article.…

@Greyhound80 @sara_Hamilton1 @JimmyKouns @H_Lipton17 @kaitlancollins Here you go -

It started with 1 tweet. From @AP, ffs. They reported that the ‘@NRA banned guns during Trump / Pence speeches at their annual meeting’.

Now it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize the NRA doesn’t decide who has a gun around POTUS, the @SecretService does.
@Greyhound80 @sara_Hamilton1 @JimmyKouns @H_Lipton17 @kaitlancollins @AP @NRA @SecretService And let’s not pretend that ANYONE at @AP doesn’t know that.

So I, and many other Twitter users, called bullshit.👇🏼
