Greta Thunberg

TIME's Commie Nag of the Year Can Go Pound Sand

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We’re all supposed to fall over ourselves over Pippi Longnagging – at least that’s what our betters command – yet it’s unclear why. Teenagers are notoriously ignorant, and ones spewing recycled Marxism are the worst of all. But the idea is not that this tiresome truant is some visionary thinker. The idea is to leverage her youth and awkwardness to keep you from speaking the indisputable truth that she’s a weird brat who presses for an ideology that butchered 100 million people in the last century. And now, she is hinting she wants to run up that score. The kid is a fanatic, and though that’s no fault of her own – she is still spewing bloodstained poison.

Catastrophic Thinking Without Solutions

Ben Shapiro, CNS News

We don't expect children to have solutions. After all, they're children. But adults hiding behind children to avoid the difficult conversations that must take place about how to achieve solutions is nothing other than moral cowardice. Complaining without solutions isn't actually useful — at least if you're interested in solving problems. It's political pandering, designed to make solutions more difficult by adding moral condemnation to political infeasibility. That merely frustrates people with the "system," since such pandering falsely suggests that at the heart of the problem lies cruel apathy — and apathy directed at crying children — rather than serious political gridlock.

Scoldilocks, Or the Story of Greta Thunberg

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

The rest of us will just have to pick up the pieces from The Traveling Thunberg Show. And that won’t be easy. Exactly how are you going to have a reasoned discussion with someone who believes that cow farts and Ford Explorers are going to kill the planet in 15 years? Greta Thunberg’s carved herself a position of fame and, likely, fortune on the rubber chicken circuit from Trondheim to Telluride lecturing insipid leftists like her parents on the evils of capitalism and prosperity, complete with foundation cash, ghostwritten environmentalist screeds, and Al Gore horror movie sequels as far as the eye can see. At least until the climate apocalypse comes.

Michael Knowles And The Crumbling Conservatism Of Fox News

Michael Knowles is unlikely to be invited back on FOX News any time soon, but Knowles was right about Greta Thunberg and the millions of children who have been rendered mentally ill by the Left’s effort to induce mass hysteria over “climate change.” Shame on FOX for caving to the Leftwing mob.
