Mike Roselle

Mike Roselle

Mike Roselle has trained over 1,000 American and Canadian youth to commit unlawful acts through "monkey-wrenching," "tree-spiking," and other forms of vandalism. In 1987, Mike Roselle scaled Mount Rushmore and placed a giant gas mask on George Washington's likeness.

Mike Roselle, being a high-school dropout, has spent much of his adolescence hitchhiking across the country and protesting against the Vietnam War. His first brush with organized environmentalism came at age 19, when he joined Friends of the Earth in Wyoming anti-logging protests.

A high school dropout? Why does anyone want to listen to him?

In 1980 Roselle became one of the five co-founders of Earth First!, the violent activist group. Roselle ran the Earth First! Direct Action Fund, used to finance illegal acts of sabotage, until he lost control of the fund in a divorce settlement with fellow Earth First! radical, Karen Pickett. Funds Roselle controlled were used to print the infamous "Eco-F*cker Hit List" used by Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.

Ted Kaczynski! So much for not wanting to hurt anyone with their actions. If you think that Mike Roselle is not proud of this, look at what he had to say about innocent bystanders.

In 1986, Roselle started working for Greenpeace, creating the groupís first American "action teams" -- organized groups of activists who would train, prepare, and execute unlawful acts together, as opposed to the ad hoc actions that were previously the norm. In 1990, Greenpeace USA made him the director of their national Rapid Response Team program, and by 1998, he was sitting on the organizationís national board of directors.

Meanwhile, in the 1990s, the Ruckus Society sprang up in the midst of rural Montana. Roselle was and has always been the driving force behind this group. As an organization, Ruckus was "incubated" by a Montana group called The Ecology Center, Inc. (where Roselle has been on the board of directors since before Ruckus existed). Itís worth noting that in addition to Roselle, the only other members of the Ruckus Societyís first board of directors were also on the board of The Ecology Center (Howie Wolke and Timothy Bechtold). Between 1995 and 1998, The Ecology Center gave the Ruckus Society $215,500.

And if you really want to know Mike Roselle's true feelings, check out this quote from the man himself!

"...This is Jihad, pal. There are no innocent bystanders, because in these desperate hours, bystanders are not innocent. We'll broaden our theater of conflict."
-- Mike Roselle, Earth First! radical and self-proclaimed revolutionary describing his radical environmentalism.

Jihad! Well, so much for "non-violent". There is nothing Non-Violent about "Jihad". Do you suppose he Supports the Troops or the Islamic Terrorists that attacked and killed all those Americans on 9-11?

Mike Roselle is an instructor at five-day training camp southwest of Edmonton, Alberta. This is a camp for activists where they learn to use blockades and action climbing (scaling tall structures to hang banners or tree sitting) in their implementation of Direct Actions. This camp is where they train people to do things such as chaining themselves to trees on other people's property or "Monkey-wrenching" where they destroy or sabotage equipment and "Tree Spiking" where they hammer steel spikes into trees so that when a tree is cut down, it poses a severe danger to whomever is charged with cutting down the tree. Keep in mind that to them, direct action means Harassment, Vandalism, Arson, or any other actions short of murder. However, if one of their targets is killed while performing one of their "Direct Actions", that is considered collateral damage and is deemed as acceptable.

The Ruckus Society was co-founded in late 1995 by Mike Roselle. He was also a co-founder of the radical Rainforest Action Network and Earth First!. During the 1980s, Earth First! became famous with the tree-spiking activities. This gave way to the formation of the domestic terrorist group the Earth Liberation Front in 1992.

Today, the Ruckus Society is devoted to training eco-terrorists in "electronic scouting" - technical surveillance involving the use of remote cameras, GPS locators, frequency counters, programmable scanners and night-vision goggles. Program graduates, then, utilize high-tech equipment such as miniature remote cameras and "bionic ear" listening devices to conduct their surveillance. These activists frequently use programmable scanners and cameras to monitor security/police communications and activity in order to warn the saboteurs of an impending response by law enforcement.

"There are no innocent bystanders..." That makes everyone a target. Does anyone doubt that this person is a serious threat.
