Posted on 12/11/2019 10:48:01 AM PST by EyesOfTX
Here is Time Magazines Person of the Year:
Times Person of the Year is a 17 year-old girl who:
Was born in to great white privilege in her racially-homogeneous country of Sweden;
Has lived a prosperous and privileged life provided to her by her neglectful, attention-seeking parents, both of whom are performers and radical leftist activists;
Has been used and abused by every adult who has ever held influence over her life;
Is currently being held up as a poster child by the radical climate alarmist community in order to advance its globalist/socialist political agenda;
Is fond of constantly lecturing all adults who will listen to her angry hectoring that they have stolen my childhood despite her prosperous life of white privilege; and
Became famous by hitching a ride on a very wealthy billionaires sailboat to float across the Atlantic to the U.S. early this year.
Here are Times stated criteria for awarding its annual Person of the Year designation:
Person of the Year (called Man of the Year or Woman of the Year until 1999) is an annual issue of the United States news magazine Time that features and profiles a person, a group, an idea, or an object that for better or for worse has done the most to influence the events of the year.
Think about that for a moment: 2019 is a year hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong citizens have risked their very lives taking to the streets to protest the Communist government in China. It is a year in which similar numbers of Iranians have taken similar risks in defying the ruling Mullahs in their own country. Hundreds of these ordinary people have lost their lives as a result of their courageous advocacy for simple human dignity and freedoms.
2019 is a year in which Democrat congressman Adam Schiff successfully held up the business of the entire federal government for months with a clown show, Soviet-style impeachment process. What about him, and what about the fake whistleblower Eric Ciaramella who served as the catalyst for the entire process?
2019 is a year in which Donald Trump and his Administration created the most vibrant and booming economy on the face of the earth, while at the same time hamstringing Chinas hegemony with crushing tariffs. What about him?
2019 is a year in which the rousing success of the brilliant men and women who run the U.S. oil and gas industry created the conditions that will allow the United States to ultimately completely disengage from wars in the Middle East, other than to protect Israel. What about them?
If you have to be politically correct and want to give it to some climate alarmist, what about Alexandria Ocasio Cortez? Unlike Greta who just admitted to the climate conference in Madrid that she her fellow alarmists have achieved nothing AOCs introduction of the Green New Deal has already influenced the policy positions of literally every man and woman running for the 2020 Democrat Party presidential nomination. Love her or hate her, AOC has, unlike Greta, actually done a lot to influence the events of the year in a real, substantive manner.
I hold no animosity towards little Greta. I actually feel a great deal of empathy and sadness for her, since she is a child who has basically been used shamelessly by every adult who she has ever had significant contact with.
But she is a poster child a cute face for the globalist socialist movement to use on its climate change ads. And the saddest part about her is that, once her childish cuteness has worn off and that will not take very long given her constant scowling she will be completely discarded by these people and forgotten within days.
The best thing well-intentioned people can do for Greta is to pray for her future.
That is all.
I thought sure they would have picked President Trump /s
How dare you!
[[ Has lived a prosperous and privileged life provided to her by her neglectful, attention-seeking parents, both of whom are performers and radical leftist activists; ]]
Greta forced her mother to quit her job because it meant she had to fly- as an international opera ‘star’
With no due respect whatsoever, she is also a complete dumb ass.

I think it should have been Hunter Biden.
Hunter has dominated the news since the Ukraine Hoax started.
And the stories...strip clubs, pregnant Arkansas stripper, drugs and hookers, Payoffs from Ukraine, China, Romania...
How DARE they!
Always been ‘parents’ who push their kids into the limelight for ‘fun’ and profit.
Michael Jackson’s little boy victims can testify to this type of parent.
Noooo - pray for OUR future, because this imp is going to kill someone, don't know who, where or when, but it is going to happen.
The dozens of people who still read Time will think this is fine.
“Times Person of the Year is a 17 year-old girl”
Literally every other 17 year old: “What is a Time Magazine?”
Time has become irrelevant. It can no longer compete for Magazine of the Year.
Of course, it is also true that magazines (the literary, not the ordnance) have become as anachronistic as the telegraph or the shortwave radio, so it wouldn’t matter which rag won MOTY anymore.
The True Persons of the Year would be a combination of the protestors in Hong Kong and Iran. They have been laying down their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor for the cause of freedom more than anyone else in the past year, with the exception of the US military.
FTA: a cute face for the globalist socialist movement
Socialists think that is a cute face?
Time magazine is following a well-worn path among America’s crony-capitalist oligarchs. Once proud media name goes into decline and isn’t really viable as a long-term business. So Billionaire-Oligarch buys it and keeps it alive as conduit for their own and deep-state propaganda.
Buffett, Gates, Bezos, and Benioff (Time) all are playing this game.
This will probably be the apex of Greta’s infamy.
I get the distinct impression that some of the grown folks are getting tired of her. More are coming out and saying so.
Jair Bolsonaro, Pres. of Brazil called her a ‘Brat’.
Why does Greta the idiot look like she is 11 years old? Is there something wrong with her, other than being a deranged leftist?
That cupid stunt? There is going to be a lot of cleaning up to do, when SHTF...
I’m sure Greta will buy 10 copies of Time, thus doubling their circulation.
