Skip to comments.Activism: Colbert, Thunberg Hope Govt. Will Take 'Extraordinary Measures' Like With Coronavirus, For Climate

Late Show host Stephen Colbert had media darling, and radical climate crusader Greta Thunberg on his show Tuesday night to discuss her latest accolades and activism. While there, Colbert urged the Swedish teen to mock President Trump and lamented with her that world leaders would not go to extraordinary measures like nationwide lockdowns, for climate change.
After profusely thanking the teen making time in her busy schedule to talk to him, Colbert praised the teen for teaching other kids to ditch school to protest climate change in a worldwide walkout:
To me, it spoke to a hunger for an opportunity to take action and for people to speak out, and you were a spark that lit that fire for people, the talk show host hailed.
From there, he tried to get Thunberg to attack her critics:
Is there anything that surprised you about, like, negative reactions you got to this? Because you became the focus of hostility for reasons that I don't entirely understand, but from media figures, from politicians. What did that feel like? he gushed.
Colbert didnt mention that any criticism Thunberg received from conservative figures and President Trump was dwarfed by the medias outright adulation of the liberal teen. Still Thunberg took the bait, mocking presidents going to social media to silence young activists, as proof teens are making an impact.
He agreed, gushing how this was because politicians saw Thunberg as a threat to their status quo. Yeah, OK.

“...Like With Coronavirus...”
But haven’t Liberals insisted that the President has done NOTHING?
Which makes him an earth killing racist. Or something. :-)
Im all for government control - lets start with pulling Colbert off the air.
Partisan Media Shills update.
Everyone who believes CO2 is dangerous should shown their commitment to the cause by stopping their own exhalation of it.
If that happens, there will be no bets. Toast, yes. As in, we will be.
hmmm- a ‘comedienne’ trying to mentally manipulate a girl with aspberger’s syndrome- or whatever she has-
In a few years, this little high school dropout will be as well remembered as that woman who protested outside Bush’s Texas property...
What was her name???
Hmmmmm. Margret someone? No, that wasn’t it. Racheal someon..... Oh, she was the Cat D9 rep in the west bank.
I just looked it up...Cindy Sheehan...
We can look at this and dismiss but November 5 may open the gates to them and the gate will never again be closed.
The one benefit of the fake science pushed on COVID 19 by the media, is we haven’t heard the global warming fake science for awhile.
Yes, I thought Colbert was suppose to be a comedian. Instead he is just an in the tank Democrat commentator.
