Greta Thunberg is a 16-year-old Swedish “environmental activist” who has Asperger syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and selective mutism.
Thunberg first became known for her activism in August 2018 when she began skipping school to protest outside the Swedish parliament by holding up a sign saying (in Swedish) “School strike for the climate”. That led to other students protesting in their own communities, which resulted in a school climate strike movement called Fridays for Future.
On September 23, 2019, Thunberg became an instant darling of America’s Left when she gave a doomsday speech at the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit in New York City, in which she berated the assembled world leaders, including President Trump, of having “stolen” her dreams and her childhood with their “empty words” and talking only about money and “fairytales of eternal economic growth”. She then proclaimed:
“People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction.”
Hmm, does Thunberg know this? — “50 years of doomsday climate-change predictions that didn’t come true“.
After Thunberg’s UN speech, student strikes took place every week somewhere across the world. In 2019, there were at least two coordinated multi-city protests involving over one million students each, to no effect. That led to Thunberg whining that school strikes have achieved nothing, as if student strikes somehow would convince China and India, the biggest polluters in the world, instantly to reverse course.
For skipping school to protest, Thunberg was heaped with accolades. A Swedish church calls her ‘successor’ to Jesus Christ; she was even nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.
On December 11, 2019, instead of the truly courageous Hong Kong protesters who put their lives at risk by standing up to the tyrannical Chinese Communist government, Time magazine selected Greta Thunberg to be Person of the Year — the youngest person ever to be so named. Time’s doomsday rationale for their choice:
Her message is one the Boomers would have recognized in the 1960s: Our elders have sold us out. The system isn’t working. The time to act is now. Perhaps even more drastically than it did in 1966, the world is changing, and the young are the ones who see what’s happening.
Time magazine must be gratified to know that their 2019 Person of the Year is a homicidal, deceitful hypocrite and puppet.
How is she a puppet?
Without a script, the girl can’t put two sentences together, as you can see for yourself in the video below.
One would think that, after making countless speeches, including her scold at the UN Climate Action Summit, she could answer the reporter’s simple question of what message she’s telling the world.
How is she homicidal?
On her way home from the UN climate summit in Madrid, Thunberg made a stop in Turin, Italy on December 13, 2019, where she addressed the crowd at a Fridays for Future protest. This is what Time‘s Person of the Year said to the cheering crowd:
“World leaders are still trying to run away from their responsibilities but we have to make sure they cannot do that. We will make sure that we put them against the wall and they will have to do their job to protect our futures.”
Putting someone against the wall is a death threat to execute by firing squad.
Two days later, Thunberg tweeted a “clarification,” claiming that the phrase has a different meaning in her native language Swedish: (BBC)
“Yesterday I said we must hold our leaders accountable and unfortunately said ‘put them against the wall’. That’s Swenglish: ‘att ställa någon mot väggen’ (to put someone against the wall) means to hold someone accountable. Of course I apologise if anyone misunderstood this. I cannot enough express the fact that I – as well as the entire school strike movement – are against any possible form of violence. It goes without saying but I say it anyway.”
How is she a deceitful hypocrite?
To “save” the environment, Thunberg eschews flying by plane to travel by yacht and train instead.
On December 14, 2019, she tweeted a pic of herself looking forlorn, sitting on the floor of a German railroad station with her luggage piled in a heap next to her, with the plaintiff message that she’s “finally” on her way home, “traveling on overcrowded trains through Germany.”
It turns out Thunberg conveniently neglected to inform her Twitter followers that she was traveling in comfort by First Class, nor is the German rail overcrowded like trains in India (see below).
Below is a rebuttal from the German Rail in response to her sympathy-inducing tweet: “It would have been nice had you acknowledged how well and competently our team treated you in your First Class seat.”
