flag-breaking-newsElin Nordegren‘s billionaire BF is caught in the kind of controversy that’d make him an undesirable in the environment-conscious Sweden, where Tiger Woods‘ ex-wife was born!

A iron-ore company owned by North Palm Beach tycoon Chris Cline, who’s been dating the divorcee since last year, hired private military-style guards armed to the teeth to keep environmentalists in Northern Wisconsin at bay.

Photos of men wearing Special Ops camouflage uniforms, masks and automatic weapons while guarding Cline’s scientists who test rocks have sprung up online, outraging locals and some politicians.

The armed men are working for Gogebic Taconite, a Cline company whose officials believe that the pristine forests could yield up to 2 billion tons of ore.

Thing is: Mining could also soil the underground water used by thousands — and environmentalists are hoping Nordegren could do to Cline what she allegedly did to Woods on the night of his infamous 2009 car crash.

“We’re sending Tiger Woods’ ex-wife a 9-iron,” said Frank Koehn, an anti-mining activist. “Maybe she can do a number on Chris Cline.

“With the mercenaries he hired, Chris Cline shows that he’s just another rich guy who’ll try to take our resources and pollute our water.

“It’s not the first time this happened, and they’ve all failed. He will, too.”

Taconite officials have told Wisconsin reporters that ninja-like environmentalists attacked its workers and vandalized equipment.

The company, they said, was forced to hire guards to protect workers.

Calls for comment made to Cline’s Palm Beach Gardens office were not returned.

    THE MAN, RICH OR POOR, HAS A RIGHT TO DEFEND HIS PROPERTY FROM INTRUDERS THAT HAVE CREATED DAMAGE AND WANT TO CREATE FURTHER DAMAGE. THE WHACKO EXTREME ENVIRONMENTAL SCREWBALLS ARE JUST VANDALS, PRETENDING TO HONOR SOME B.S. CAUSE.
    I HOPE HIS GUARDS SHOOT EVERY ONE OF THEM IN THEIR MOST SENSITIVE AREAS…

      The people poor or rich have the right to protect their water and air too. What make mr cline think he can own it all?

      Does he own the property or is it leased?

      I had the right to protect my property too and I did! Chris Cline didn’t get by with this crap in WV. We sent his azz packing.. Sorry WI he had to go somewhere!

    Funny how Republicans are all about defending rich people’s rights to do whatever they want even when their actions destroy the basic rights of thousands (and sometimes millions) of other people. Destroy the pristine forest, destroy the water supply it’s all good as long as the millionaire Republican makes more money. In reality it’s disgusting that people care so little about how their actions impact their neighbors.

    Jose, that is not a select fire “automatic weapon” , it is just your run of the mill, soccer mom standard issue FN SCAR 16S.

    As an avid hunter, I would like to preserve the forest the best we can. I hope CC fails on his quest for new land leases up there.
