Most people used to think of activists as people who were working to promote their cause by increasing awareness and giving people a reason to join them.

But leftists, especially climate change activists, have redefined the term to mean “just plain crazy.”

Now these two leftist radicals just did the unthinkable at our nation’s capital that will leave you stunned.

Climate activists shut down the National Archives Rotunda

The National Archives in Washington, D.C., is a treasure trove that contains and preserves priceless, original founding documents, including the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.

This legendary place is where millions of tourists from all over the world come to view these incredible artifacts each year.

But this week, the National Archives Rotunda was closed down after unruly climate activists did something horrible.

Two male activists dumped a large volume of red-colored powder directly onto the case that protects the U.S. Constitution.

Fortunately, the National Archives said that no damage was done to the actual document itself, which is over 230 years old.

The climate activists were “immediately detained,” and conservators were dispatched to the site only a few minutes later to evaluate any damage done to the document and the Rotunda.

The Rotunda was closed after the incident, and according to officials, it remained closed for another day for cleaning, leaving visitors without an opportunity to view the artifacts contained within.

U.S. Archivist Colleen Shogan said, “The National Archives Rotunda is the sanctuary for our nation’s founding documents. They are here for all Americans to view and understand the principles of our nation. We take such vandalism very seriously and we will insist that the perpetrators be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

A video taken shortly after the incident took place shows two young men covered in powder along with more powder at their feet and all over some of the exhibits.

In the video, one of the men says, “This country is founded on the conditions that all men are created, er, equally, and endowed with the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We are calling for all people to have these rights, not just wealthy white men. We all deserve clean air, water, food, and a livable climate.”

These activists have caused trouble before

The group responsible for the men’s actions at the Rotunda is called Declare Emergency.

The climate group responded to the incident by posting on the social media platform X, “We don’t want the end of civilization but that’s the path we’re currently on. Declare Emergency’s nonviolent civil disobedience is love in action everyday, not just on Valentine’s Day.”

Not surprisingly, both of the men in the video have been caught causing trouble before.

Ford Fischer, a professional documentarian, identified one of the men as Donald, who he stated was also arrested earlier the same week for blocking traffic during another climate protest.

Fischer said the other man was involved in a separate act of vandalism at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. in November 2023.
