Time’s “Scold of the Year,” Greta Thunberg, told a crowd in Italy that “we will make sure we put world leaders against the wall” if they do not do what she tells them to do.
On her way home, the 16-year-old Swedish eco-activist and chronic truant stopped to address a Fridays for Future gathering in Turin, Italy, at which she went the full-Fidel Castro.
“Unfortunately, we probably already know the outcome. World leaders are still trying to run away from their responsibilities but we have to make sure they cannot do that. We will make sure that we put them against the wall and they will have to do their job to protect our futures,” she said, according to the Daily Mail.
“Against the wall” is fairly common jargon in revolutions, especially youthful revolutions, and the accepted translation means executions — lots and lots of executions, specifically firing squads, where the old leaders are permanently removed by fresh-faced revolutionaries.
During the speech, and while wearing what looks like a plastic — and, therefore, a petroleum-based — yellow rain slicker, Greta shouted her usual spiel about how The Children should be in charge of everything because The Children will have to live in a future that will not exist unless we return to the Dark Ages of wind and solar power, unless we accept socialism.
It is not fair that the older generation are handing over the responsibility to solve this crisis to us young people who have not started this crisis. It’s not fair that we have to do all this.
The adults are behaving as if there is no tomorrow but there is a tomorrow, it is the tomorrow where our young people will live and we have to fight for that tomorrow. We can no longer take that tomorrow for granted.
Greta added that the next decade “will define our future.”
She said: “What we decide to do or not to do in this decade we will have to live with for the rest of our lives.
“And our children and our grandchildren will also have to live with it.
“So 2019 is almost over and we must make sure that 2020 is the year of action, is the year when we bend the global emissions curve.
“We must make sure, and we will make sure that if we stand together we can do it.”
She sounds like a pint-sized Jim Jones.
Now I want to share something I found interesting about our favorite Greta…
She only has 3.6 million Twitter followers.
Granted, that’s more than ten times yours truly, but when you consider the media hype not just here in America, but throughout the world… Well, that’s not a whole lot.
Khloe Kardashian has 27 million.
Sean Hannity has 4.4 million.
Russell Wilson has 5.5 million.
Aaron Rodgers has 4.4 million.
Tom Cruise has 6.7 million.
What I’m saying is that, once again, the media are gaslighting us into believing Greta is some kind of worldwide phenom, when she’s about 1/10 the phenomenon of a lesser Kardashian sister.
The world elites adore Greta; people like the leftist editors at Time adore any child who will lead the world backwards to the Dark Ages, to socialism, to a centralized government where all the Deplorables become serfs. They have loved this stuff since the ’60s, when we were all told to “Listen to the children,” and all that got us was a national case of the clap and an addiction crisis.
But in the real world, the world where you and I live, a Western world filled with billions and billions of everyday people, the number of those people interested in what Guyana Greta has to say is less than that of an aging quarterback in a place called Green Bay, Wisconsin.
A mentally retarded child in the knows everything stage of her life.
Shows the desperation nothing more.
Imagine if her and Hogg got to together and produced kids what the kids would be like.
I wonder if she’s ever read (or the person pulling her strings and providing the words coming out of her mouth) “Lord of the Flies”?
Ha. And, I might add, ha, ha, ha. No one pushing this crap is interested in going back to the Dark Ages. They aren’t even interested in curtailing private jet travel, limousine rides or adjusting their thermostats. They are interested in taking money from gullible (or subjugated) people and putting it in their own pockets.
@kitt: You think she was chosen because she stood out as the best and the brightest? THOSE types are not easily manipulated. You think little Greta the Menace concocted that line herself?
@another vet: Swedish meatballs?
If you watch her you see one hypocrisy after another.
Like that catamaran she took from So America to Europe.
It used more than TWICE the fossil fuel to make that trip than for all the people on board to get on a commercial jet and fly.
Problem was the currents flow strongly to the WEST that time of year and the boat wanted to go EAST.
There is a route it could have taken way to the North but storms and huge waves are very common on that route this time of the year.
So it took a direct route and used fuel in its two inboard engines almost constantly for the trip to take place over the time frame.
She isn’t a bright bulb or she would have known that and taken the jet.
You can catch her doing such ungreen things almost daily, if you look.
Shut up you little brat and respect your elders what this kid needs is a good slap in the face Shame on Time for making her their Person of the Year I hope this costs that liberal rag many many readers
Hitler, Goebbels, Mao, Stalin, Lenin, Trotsky would be very proud of this communist POS. one can only imagine what this piece of garbage she will be peddling in 10 years.
Maybe she should put their faces against the wall, so they can better see the writing on it.
@Greg: Maybe the child should go back to school them using her as a prop jumping through their hoops as the lies about their data manipulation gets exposed, as they admit its all about wealth redistribution.
Here is something we can agree on let people trying to be off grid alone
@Greg: That would certainly be more civil than threatening to MURDER them, wouldn’t it. Why is it always oppression and violence with you leftists?
Well, we know you party is the party of violence and communism. I’m sure you’re pleased someone is exploiting her for the sole purpose of grabbing power.
It’s kinda what your party does…
After reading the comments about her comment, Greta has apologized for saying “we will put world leaders against a wall.”
Her explanation makes a certain amount of sense.
She speak Swedish but can speak English as a 2nd language.
Figures of speech are different in different languages.
So, she says, in Swedish, putting someone against a wall simply means forcing them to answer tough questions.
In English it reminds us of historic totalitarians like Castro, Che’ and Pol Pot who LITERALLY put their opponents up against a wall and then shot them.
Maybe if she hadn’t dropped out of school she would have had more history lessons.
But perhaps not.
Here in the USA we are quitting teaching school children about WWII and the Civil War because it might “trigger” them.
@Nan G: Yeah, her weak-ass adolescent excuses reminds me of one of our friends here. She should save that for when she doesn’t do her homework (were she to prepare for when the left is through with her and discards her and go back to school) or when she comes in late. Her rhetoric has been ramping up to this natural conclusion (murdering those who will not agree) and was also something she hears frequently in climate-nazi groups. Her only proper act of attrition is to disappear and go silent.
A casual bystander of the political world might wonder why in the hell the right wing media and unhinged hack sites would be so up in arms and pro-bullying over some teenager’s reverence to mother earth.
But then there are those that understand why. Because your idol god, the master bully, told you to.
And as we and you both know, you must do it.
@Ronald J. Ward: AAAAAAAAND along comes the sick, demented stalker with nothing to say, but just wanting to be near his target. Sheesh. The very guy that said no matter how many women Bill Clinton raped and abused, he would still trust and support him. I guess it’s not that surprising.
And there’s my obsessive stalker in 4, 3, 2…….
@Ronald J. Ward: Like most things you lie about, it should be noted the stalker FOLLOWS the subject, not the other way around. Always, I post, then you come sniffing around. Why don’t you go register yourself as a sex offender like your beloved Clinton?
Well, actually like most of your gibberish, that isn’t true and yes, I have several recent FA links where I posted before you and then you, out of whatever perverted infatuations of me, couldn’t resist letting me know of your presence.
Secondly, I never initially respond directly to you or your comments but to others and, wah lah, again you can’t ignore your obsessive instincts to get my attention. Otherwise, why is it that you have convinced yourself that my comments to others are an indication to an interest in you? It’s obsession of course. I rarely address you to others whereas you just cannot resist the impulse to express your obsession of me with others.
And then, the very fact that you just can’t let it go, your insistence for me to see and hear you, your loss of sleep if there’s a comment from me that you allowed to go unacknowledged is in itself an indication of your admiration of me.
And lastly, as I’ve mentioned, the Trump bowel dwellers have allowed themselves to be a part of the Trump propaganda machine and as we all know, Propaganda 101 Rule # 2 dictates that you accuse your opponent of what you are guilty of.
I know, you have to come back, you have to get the last word, you are just way too obsessed with me to anything other wise, either to me directly or in chit chat with Kitt or others (or one of them will open the door for you). I understand. I get that. And honestly Deplorable, it’s okay. So go ahead, don’t go into a panic that you’ll again so your weakness to your impulsiveness. Whatever is therapeutic for you.
@Ronald J. Ward: More S T A L K I N G. Kind of obsessive. Probably a reaction to watching all your lies fall apart right before your crossed eyes. Don’t cry.
@Deplorable Me: @Ronald J. Ward:
Haha…just call this idiot something and his posts get longer, angrier, and more irrationally…while he calls everyone stupid.
He never has proof of this “Trump supporters will support everything he does”.
In his words, he just doing this:
Funny how the bullies are told by the media that they are victims…and they believe it.
@Nathan Blue: Yeah, AJ accuses everyone else of supporting Trump no matter what they do, but he made it clear he supports trashy scum like Bill Clinton no matter what HE has done.
So, an unverified, unsubstantiated or even proven false accusation against Trump is supposed to force us to denounce him, but sexual assault, sex with an intern in the Oval (not ORAL) office, and confirmed pedophilia is just minor stuff and not grounds to denounce liberal filth. You don’t get any more dishonest and hypocritical around her than AJ.
@Deplorable Me: That always the issue with the current Left: “Hey, you need to denounce Trump of something one of our Dem leaders is actively doing…and doing worse!”
Yeah, right. They set the bar. Angry talk show hosts, vitriolic rhetoric, and groupthink. Trump is kicking their as using similar tactics, and they can’t stand it.
No one in America, other than the crazy Left, calls Don a king or whatnot. That’s just bullshit partisan rhetoric.
He’s out in 2024.
Greta says she is sorry blames her firing squad language on bad translations.
Yup it was just bad translations that happened to the Romanov Family.
