Skip to comments.Greta Thunberg's Fantastic Voyage for Socialism Exemplifies the Failures of Socialism

On November 12, young Greta Thunberg set sail from America to Europe. But not in the same way she arrived, and youll hear few people mention that.
Back in August, much was made of her trip to America. She doesnt fly because of the outsize greenhouse gas emissions from aviation, the New York Times reports. So, she sailed to America on a very environmentally-friendly racing yacht instead.
It was reported that the cost of that entire voyage from England to America that she began back in August has not been calculated. Thats not true, of course. Somebody has certainly calculated and paid the cost that was incurred. What is meant by that statement is that the total cost is not being disclosed to the public. But it doesnt take much digging to discover that its outside the realm of attainment for the common person who wishes to traverse the Atlantic. That vessel alone costs more than $4.1 million, and this doesnt include the cost of employing the two skippers, a cameraman, food, time away from work, etc.
On the way home on November 12, however, she hitched a more comfortable ride with an Australian couple that sails around the world in a 48-foot catamaran called La Vagabonde and chronicles their travels on YouTube, according the Times. Its hard to imagine that she hasnt enjoyed this experience or her newfound fame, given that we have evidence that she was dancing the nights away to amuse her adoring fans.
But heres another funny little thing you might not hear often. The skipper of the yacht she took home erased whatever carbon output Greta hoped to save.

Virtue signalling little bitch
Like everything else with the left, actual results do not count but theatrics do.
Most historians have leaned Left for quite some time, and I imagine that will continue for some years to come. But I don’t think it will continue forever. At some point, historians are going to look back at this era and make an honest assessment. And it won’t be pretty.
Our elites seem to reject objective reality and seem to think that wishful thinking is a viable approach to world governance.
Somehow it seems like the alchemists of the past who took lead and really thought it could be turned into gold.
She should travel like “Lounge Chair Larry” did—By balloons and a pellet gun: (starts at 0:37)
Err, make that “Lawn Chair Larry”.
Socialism isn’t for the little people. It’s for the select people.;..and it,and they, are not cheap.
And they are not bound to any actual rules..unless they make them up.
Her parents are the real culprits. This little snot got all of her ideas from those 2 boneheads.
Bookmarked for later...
Environmentally friendly racing yacht? If one doesn’t take into account the construction of said friendly yacht. Making the composite carbon fiber boat ain’t just a slap it together bark canoe deal. Her supposed borrowed trash filled tesla(still waiting verification it was the one she used) during her tour in North America. The blogging family that took her back to the ‘yewwwwww’. Her return trip to sweDUHn from Madrid Spain to Turin Italy and northward through Germany sometimes in first class others when she volunteered to sit in the luggage area. Wearing, more than likely, the latest patagonia or columbia gear. Not to mention the amount of luggage. I know she ain’t toting it. Okay DOOMER!
.....”Her parents are the real culprits. This little snot got all of her ideas from those 2 boneheads”....
That’s for sure!
How much do her parents pay into the socialist system I wonder?
Greta is advocating for global socialism. The bigger the better./s/
