The unrelenting assault on golf courses by left-wing climate protesters has reached a new level of mayhem and lawlessness. During the second round of Open Championship, these radicals stormed the course with the intent of disrupting the game, which they see as emblematic of the ills of modern society.

These radicals have been targeting golf courses in recent months and years due to their irrational belief that they require large amounts of water to maintain. This sophomoric idea has no basis in reality, as golf courses today are designed with water conservation in mind.
Last week, dozens of climate activists, masquerading as Native American advocates, illegally entered a golf course in The Hamptons and proceeded to harass and intimidate golfers. Their disruption of a peaceful sport was unacceptable, but it was only the beginning.
On Friday, protesters with Just Stop Oil continued their campaign of terror. The group reportedly set off an orange flare near the 17th green, ultimately resulting in four arrests. As one female protester rushed the course, American golfer Billy Horschel, 36, turned around and extended his arm, stopping the demonstrator in her tracks. She was then escorted off the course while Horschel continued his round.
Just Stop Oil is a radical climate activist group known for earning headlines through disruption of major events and blocking major roadways. Their antics have led to dangerous situations in the past, with angry drivers leaving their vehicles to physically remove protesters from the road.
In one viral incident that took place in England over the past week, a woman with an infant pleaded with a group of Just Stop Oil activists to move off the road so she could take her baby to the hospital. The demonstrators refused to budge, displaying a level of inhumanity that cannot be tolerated in any civilized society.

It is clear that Just Stop Oil has no respect for the law or the rights of others. Their extremist agenda seeks to impose their will on society and stifle economic growth. They have even clashed with ideological groups that typically share their own agenda.
During London’s Pride parade last month, a group of climate activists halted the procession by laying in the road, drawing the ire of parade attendees. This display of intolerance demonstrates that Just Stop Oil’s radicalism knows no bounds.
It is time for law enforcement to take action against this group and ensure that their violent and disruptive tactics do not spread further. Golf courses are not the enemy of the environment, and they should not be subjected to the tyranny of these extremists.
