Skip to comments.'This is oil country': Newly painted Greta Thunberg mural gets defaced, covered in slurs

A newly painted portrait of Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg was quickly defaced first with a pro-oil message, and later with a slur against the teen.
The mural was painted on a section of a downtown "free wall" along a bike path that runs parallel to 109 Street near the Alberta Legislature. Local artist AJA Louden has confirmed he painted Thunberg Friday.
A CBC journalist was shooting footage of the mural on Sunday morning when James Bagnell walked up with spray paint and began painting "Stop the Lies. This is Oil Country!!!" over the teen's face.
"This is Alberta. This is oil country. My father has worked in the oil industry. We don't need foreigners coming in and telling us how to run our business, support our families, put food on our tables," he said.
Bagnell said as soon as he saw photos of the mural on social media, he decided to go down and "deal with it." He said his father, who recently died, would have been "disgusted" to see the portrait of Thunberg.

“How dare you!”
downtown “free wall” — I don’t see the problem.
I thought only Americans were bigoted and evil and climate deniers.
Stories like this make me so proud of my Alberta peeps. :-)
Are we starting to fight back? About time
Love it! Piss of, Greta.... you little toad.
Bravo! I’d have done much worse, but since I’m not artistic it would have probably been done with a lot of cans of black paint.

So the kid with the spray can and just as much right to paint the wall as the “artist”
Now I get your screen name....................
Cruz is one of you.
God God! Who in the hell would waste their talents painting that ugly face? If anything it will promote more drilling
Uh oh!! Scoldilocks is going to scold this guy!!
My cousin worked at the AB oil fields. He got “educated” as he was a life-long leftard previously. Not anymore..
Fascinating and beautiful documentary.
Have you ever seen the heavy metal version of her “how dare you” speech?
Only leftists can deface things.
Sorry, but Greta is an ignorant slut.
Also a dumbass.

Somebody needs to ask Greta what caused the last Ice Age to end, because it wasn’t fossil fuels.
When the next one comes, and it will, the human race could not create enough CO2 with all of our technology to mitigate the effects of reduced solar output.
Humans are a tropical species.
Warm is good.
