Phoney as hell!

The UN's Greta Thunberg climate gamble offers up a child who's mastered the art of regurgitating political slogans

At the age of 17, Malala Yousafzai became the youngest person to receive a Nobel Prize. The Pakistani activist had risen to world prominence as an advocate for women’s and children’s rights.

The world’s current superstar teen activist, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, has also been nominated for a Nobel, which would make her the youngest recipient.

Greta is no Malala. She has been on an easy glide path to media celebrity and TV stardom, the product of a cultural and education system — and a global ideological movement — that finds it useful to manipulate children into becoming anxious activists.

Greta Thunberg & Allies File Climate Complaint Against 5 Countries (Not China)

Swedish teen climate alarmist Greta Thunberg and 15 other children filed a complaint with the United Nations on Monday, accusing five countries of inaction on combatting so-called climate change.

The complaint, filed with the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child, accuses Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, and Turkey of failing to fulfill their obligations to act against climate change, placing them in violation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, a three-decade-old human rights treaty which sets out the “civil, political, social, and cultural rights of children.
More:

“Change needs to happen now if we are to avoid the worst consequences. The climate crisis is not just the weather. It means also, lack of food and lack of water, places that are unlivable and refugees because of it. It is scary,” Thunberg said in a statement upon announcing the complaint.
What's truly scary is the level of ignorance on display.

Further:

The complaint does not name China, which accounts for 30 percent of global emissions, because it has not signed the part of the Convention on the Rights of the Child treaty allowing children to seek justice for breaching the agreement. The establishment media over the weekend remained silent on Beijing’s ban of Climate Strike events throughout the country, despite the participation of over 150 counties raising awareness for purported “global warming.”
All bold mine.

Child Cult Leader News

The left is now attempting to deplatform anyone who criticizes Thunberg, and some on the nominal right are (get this!) assisting them.

The left demanded that Michael Knowles, for example, not be booked on Fox, and Fox said that he would not be.

The cucked-out, tucked-under Washington Examiner jumped to its favorite type of easy clickbait article -- attacking the right, yet again, this time for not treating Ms. Thunberg with the level of respect to which she is so obviously entitled.

I'm glad we have so many writers paid by "conservative" institutions to join the left's purge-quests.

We're not allowed to criticize 16 year olds? That's funny.
Love the twist on the old painting. :lmao:

Coincidence? I think not.
I would not compare her to a nazi poster child just think she is a product of our time. Sweden is pretty progressive as well. I do not doubt her motivation, but I do think it is misguided. I posted in another threat about the big players not being called out when it comes to pollution.

If you're lied to all your life about eco-collapse due to traces of carbon dioxide, then your motivation may well be real.

I agree 100% which is why I do find it a bit hard to be all that judgemental. She has been told one thing, the world is at the brink of destruction. She believes and is attempting to do something about it. Misguided yes, but that does not change the good motivation she has. End of the day it is simply about publicity. She is no scientist, she has no life experience or research experience in this field, she simply believes we are destroying the world and wants it to end. That being said I hardly believe speaking to congress or sailing around the world in a millionaire boat is going to do anything for her cause other than 15 mins of fame.

Exactly my point, she is being exploited by rich and powerful sources to prey on our sympathy. I refuse to fall for their ploy. It is child abuse and nothing more.

Like JJ Sefton noted at AoS this morning, What does a Muslim nation know about Jesus Christ?

Church Of Sweden Announced Greta Thunberg ‘Successor’ Of Jesus

The Church of Sweden, which has routinely promoted teen climate change alarmist Greta Thunberg, announced the young girl a “successor” to Jesus Christ last December.

“Announcement! Jesus of Nazareth has now appointed one of his successors, Greta Thunberg”, the Church of Limhamn tweeted on December 1, 2018.

...

The announcement resurfaced online on Monday, likely due to the church’s most recent support of Thunberg’s activism.

If you do not believe this kid is a phoney and being directed by the Soros group, ask yourself just how she can afford to burn so much carbon to get around.

As for her latest plans, she had better be vewy, vewy careful in Saudi. I hear they can be very hard on the feminist crusaders over there, child or not.

From the story:

"We trust that Ms. Thunberg will recognize Alberta's leading human rights and environmental standards, especially in comparison to oil-producing dictatorships such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, Russia, and Venezuela – which she will presumably visit next – as well as major growing emitters like China," the statement reads.
Good luck with survival in those countries, little child. As for Alberta, she is not the favourite kid here right now and has yet to learn not to poke a sleeping bear.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg says she is coming to Alberta
