The good folks at Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow yesterday jumped on board two Greenpeace ships in Copenhagen and, while decoying crew with doughnuts, unfurled banners that said “Ship of Lies” and “Propaganda Warrior.” From CFACT’s own report:

CFACT unfurled the banners for two reasons, CFACT president David Rothbard explained. “Greenpeace ships, like the Rainbow Warrior and Arctic Sunrise, have become global symbols for radical environmentalism, and we wanted to call attention to the harm these groups are causing.  And second, it seemed appropriate to use one of Greenpeace’s favorite tactics to make this point.”
