If you think it is incredible that the global warming hoax still serves as a pretext for authoritarianism despite the conspicuous lack of warming for nearly two decades now, consider this — F*** for Forest is still around too. A new documentary has the ecopornography outfit back in the news:
“Blood and sperm. The perfect mix,” says a tattooed hippy, as he licks both off his hands, having just had sex with a woman in front of a small audience in a Berlin basement. “Life-giving fluids we are all so afraid of. We’re so afraid of ourselves! It’s all organic.” It’s not everyone’s idea of popular entertainment, but this scene can be experienced at a safe distance in a new documentary, F*ck for Forest, detailing the activities of the group of the same name (without the asterisk). …
The live displays are a sideline; funds are primarily raised via their website, which has images and videos of its core staff members and whatever volunteers they pick up on the street in myriad sexual permutations, from naked people up trees to chaotic orgies. Subscribers pay about £10 [$13.10] a month, and the proceeds go towards rainforest conservation projects in South America. …
[FFF cofounder Tommy Hol Ellingsen] and his Swedish partner Leona Johansson can talk at great length about the ills of western society, freedom of expression, the sanctity of nature and nobility of indigenous tribal life, but in the documentary their philosophy is put to the test. The first half details their eco-hippy existence, wandering the streets of Berlin, propositioning strangers to contribute to the website, getting stoned, having sex, and subjecting audiences to their performance art (if the “blood and sperm” part sounds shocking, wait for their terrible folk songs).
By exploiting the environmental angle, they actually make money as professional hippie degenerates.
Leona estimates that the non-profit organisation has made in the region of €100,000 (£85,000) [$131,000] a year, since it started in 2004. Their website details how the money has been spent on buying up land and promoting permaculture and indigenous lifestyles in Brazil, Peru and other countries. And as the film attests, they also live a frugal lifestyle, wearing clothes and eating food they find in rubbish bins, rather than spending the charity’s money.
When they get stoned, they presumably find the drugs in rubbish bins too. It is unthinkable that funds intended to save the sacred forests would go up in marijuana smoke.
These days it isn’t easy to push the envelope, but Tommy and Leona consistently manage.
When Tommy and Leona first started the website in Oslo, they received a grant from the Norwegian government — a decision the authorities regretted when Tommy and Leona caused a stir by having sex on stage at a Norwegian music festival later that year, while a hardcore band called the Cumshots played along. That led to an obscenity trial, at which Tommy pleaded for the cause of public nudity and dropped his trousers in court. Shortly after, they relocated to Berlin, where they’ve continued to make enemies. In 2009 they were ejected from an anarchist congress in the city for insisting on the right to remove their clothes during a workshop entitled “Anarchy and Sex”. The controversy resulted in the entire congress being shut down early. In 2011, they took things even further by interrupting the Ascension Day service in Oslo Cathedral with a naked protest (in defence of a priest who was sacked for writing about sex). Shocked members of the clergy had to drag them off the altar.
Michal Marczak, the director of the documentary, comments on FFF’s pornographic product:
“My first impression was, who the hell would ever watch this? And even if they would, who would pay for it? It’s really vulgar and its very … hairy. Nobody shaves their armpits, and it’s really badly lit. But I noticed that the people mostly seem happy in it.”
Moonbats are easy to please in some respects.
