Skip to comments.Greta Thunberg Is the Perfect Hero for an Unserious Time
Posted on 12/13/2019 5:01:12 AM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Who better than a finger-wagging teen bereft of accomplishment, or any comprehension of basic economics or history, to be Time magazines Person of the Year in 2019? Greta Thunbergs canonization is a perfect expression of media activism in a deeply unserious time.
Has there ever been a less consequential person picked to be Person of the Year? I doubt it. I mean, Wallis Simpson, 1936s Person of the Year, got King Edward VIII to abdicate the throne. Thunberg cant even get you to abdicate your air-conditioning.
These days we celebrate vacuous fire and brimstone. Greta Thunbergthe idea, not the girlis a concoction of activists who have increasingly taken to using children as a shield from critical analysis or debate. Shes the vessel of the environmentalists fraudulent apocalypticism-as-argument. Her style is emotion and indignation, histrionics and fantasy. She is a teenager, after all.
How dare you attack a poor defenseless child who suffers from Asperger syndrome!
Youll notice that, on one hand, Thunbergs champions demand that the world take her Malthusian crusade seriously, and on the other, they feign indignation when you actually do. The argument that young people, because they will inherit the future, are also best equipped to comprehend it is as puerile as any of Thunbergs positions.
Perhaps a better question is this: What kind of parents, editors, producers, or U.N. officials would thrust a vulnerable child, with Asperger syndrome, no less, into a complex and contentious debate? I have great sympathy for her. Its her ideological handlers who have stolen her childhood.

False hero, false crisis, false times, false species.
Greta Thunberg is the personification of all the lies of the Left.
Greta Thunberg, false prophet.
I think Time’s Man of the Year should have been the guy who’s still buying that stupid magazine. That one guy.
How deer yew!
I’m still trying to figure out just what her message is. “How daaah you!” How dare us what? Invent cars? How dare us not invent an engine that runs on cold fusion? I would if I could darling, I wouldn’t mind becoming a billionaire 100 times over.
This girl has serious problems in her head. She has focused all her hate at Trump. Did you see the video of her looking angrily at Trump? She’s going to have some serious issues when the media and the left tires of her and goes on to someone else.
She is Queen of the Stupids, to paraphrase the Gingerbread Man.
Cow. Deer. Ewe.?
A stupid young kid, this they now idolize
If she makes it to adulthood, she’ll be a bitter, humorless harridan, ignored by most and considered an eccentric curiosity.
You know those papier mache puppets Mexicans parade aruond during their festivals? Flimsy caricatures with nothing inside?
That’s Greta. And that’s the whole liberal movement.
A mentally ill child exploited by her radical leftist parents and other political zealots. A better fate for her would be to take her from her parents and put her in a treatment facility which would give her proper health care and, also, deprogram her. Her parents should be brought up on child abuse charges.
Actually, she’s a creepy little kid who needs an intervention from those who control her. Sad
Greta is an Angry Little Fascist Prig!
I am waiting for her to tell us that we need to send all the Jews off to Concentration Camps to fight Global Climate Change.
