This Isn’t the Way

Lauren Southern an omnipresent right leaning journalist activist was recently caught doing some questionable activities off the coast of Italy. Southern along with other vigilante groups from Europe appear to be taking the law into their own hands by attempting to interfere with boats entering and leaving Italy. To me this is crossing a line which ought not to be crossed. First and foremost its extremely dangerous to be going around aggressively trying to impede boats passage and endangers the lives of those on both vessels. Secondly this to me equates to the vigilante Greenpeace activists who sail down and attempt to disrupt the Japanese whaling operation. Its extremely dangerous and when met with violent action the natural response is to return with violence which eventually causes the situation to escalate. I don’t wish to see some dangerous acts occur which dissuades the public from empathizing with the positions of right leaning groups over something entirely preventable. I feel that Southern would be doing infinitely more good if she were to produce a hard hitting documentary in Italian which chronicled the voyage of these migrant vessels and the ineptitude or nonchalant stance of the government officials. This I feel would have far more reaching potential and persuasion power over the common voter. The whole charade of attempting to stop boats in dangerous ways is incredibly foolish.
