Author and Fox News contributor Douglas Murray slammed climate change activists for their "latest genius idea" after some glued themselves to historic paintings in protest of fossil fuel use. Murray joined "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday to discuss the left's latest trend in protest of Big Oil. UK CLIMATE ACTIVISTS GLUE HANDS TO VINCENT VAN GOGH PAINTING AT LONDON MUSEUM DOUGLAS MURRAY: They've been developing this for a while.

They not only showed contempt for the works of art, which to my mind is contempt for civilization. But this incredible narcissism, this incredible narcissism, who would do this kind of thing?
