Jig Is Up for Berkeley Treetards

After almost two years, it looks like the party's almost over for the moonbats infesting the trees near Memorial Stadium in Berkeley. Workers have already begun to cut down trees to make room for a sports training center. Although moonbats continue to lurk in the branches, University of California officials are hoping for "a quick and safe extraction in the coming days."

The treetards have had their food supply cut off, so they'll be climbing down soon. At last word, however, they were continuing to issue demands:

In their most recent demand, the tree-sitters said they would come down if the university gives $6 million to environmental and Native American groups, creates a public committee on campus land use, and allows protesters to use the stump from the oldest tree in the grove, which protesters called "Grandma," for a Native American drum.

The university agreed to give them the stump named Grandma, but balked at the $6 million.

A reader thoughtfully provided this photo of the last forlorn treetards:

You know there had to be at least 1 guitar in the tree

That must be one stinky tree.

Yeah, between the buckets of urine and feces, and the fact that the protestors are the kinds of people who believe bathing is for Nazis, normal people approaching the tree would probably need gas masks.

Will the North Carolina Earth Firsters be crying and screeching. More importantly, can I watch?

These tree-climbers never seem to care about the amount of damage they do to trees like this. In the UK, there was a rash of protests in the late 90s about various bits of forest being re-located to make way for a motorway. They were going to transplant the trees, until the protestors had their way with them, pissed all over them, undermined the roots and basically killed the lot. They killed the trees they said they were saving.

Leftism in a nutshell really.

I think I will invite them to sit in one of the trees where I live. If the cold doesn't get them, the bear and big cats will.

Just cover the bottom of the tree with Napalm and light - they wont be in that tree very long after you do that.

I don't understand why they don't just cut the trees down while the moonbats are still in them. Aren't they trespassing anyway?

Too much free time.

Some people just have too much free time on thier hands.
Nothing else can explain things like this.

Yikes... what a bunch of DIRT BAGS. Can't something be done to keep those idiots in the trees rather than exposing the public to their filth?

I think the Chinese have some trees that need to be "saved", you can see how they improved the quality of life for those trees in Berkeley.

Does that flag have the Obama logo on it?

Y'all ought be ashamed of yourself, talking about them elites that way.

That's the best the PRB has to offer. Let's show some respect. They will be running for President soon.

Not only that, it's a grandpa guitar. One of the calling cards of the eco-moonbat.

"Yikes... what a bunch of DIRT BAGS. Can't something be done to keep those idiots in the trees rather than exposing the public to their filth?"---hey xbolts, I think you've stumbled upon a great idea! LOL! Lets build some sort of spiked apparatus that would make it impossible for them to come down from the tree! We can even airlift in water and mre's. I know that its not very Christian-like of me, but one can still laugh at the thought.

I say build the sports complex around them and let the sports fans get extra added bang for the buck!

Indeed, Archonix, they do tend to do irreparable damage to the trees they claim to want to save. For another example, tree- sitters here in America tend to build and make room for their Ewok- esque tree villages by chopping off the tops of the trees, which does irreversible damage to them. Of course, they're too stoned to realize that.

Today is the last day. UCB Police built up to them and are arresting them.

Posted by: Oiao at September 9, 2008 1:55 PM

Put up a big sign they can all see:

"Trees will be cut down tomorrow at 9 am. We advise you to leave."

Then at 8:30, bring in 3 or 4 ambulances, plainly marked, with lots of paramedics standing by.

At 8:45 bring in the tree-cutters.

At 9, cut down the trees.

"Archonix at September 9, 2008 10:13 AM"

I remember that incident. What a bunch of morons/hypocrits.

Posted by: KHarn at September 9, 2008 2:44 PM

I don't understand why, when unable to cut the trees down while these nuts were hanging from the branches, they didn't just drill holes in them and pour roundup in.

Posted by: Matt at September 9, 2008 4:36 PM

The treetards probably fling their feces at each other. Authorities need to hose them down immediately.

They have probibly sat around watching mindless propeganda crap like TREE-SIT a silly mindless peice of celulous crap and junky movies like FAMILY TREE and all this by smoking wacky weed

Just watching the local news (San FranFreakShow) and they are not being kind to the TreeTards.

The one year delay cost CA (UCB is a state school) upwards of $22 million dollars.

Yes, upwards of $22 million dollars.

Interesting note in all the names of the last 4 hold out TreeTards were Spanish. Yes first and last name Spanish (Mexican's no less).

Go figure.

I sure would like to see a bird take a dump on their heads or a squrrel bite them in their private parts i mean their just imatating ding-bats like JULIA(BUTTERFLY)HILL

Posted by: Spurwing Plover at September 10, 2008 7:13 AM

Dont worry treetards that tree will now be used to build a home for some decent hard working american indtead of just sitting there rotting away and dying
