Greta says censorship of people who disagree with her is essential to protect free speech.
Greta Thunberg Calls on Facebook to Censor Her Critics
How dare she blackmail farcebook!
Well, Greta, let’s talk about taking responsibility. Should your alarmist predictions of imminent damage to the earth and its inhabitants turn out to be false, to what extent and in what ways will you take responsibility for your part in fomenting fear about nonexistent climate change; influencing policy makers to take steps that are economically deleterious, especially to third-world countries that need electricity produced using fossil fuels; and encouraging abridgement of free speech rights against those who disagree with you (but turned to be correct all along)?
Saying “I’m sorry” isn’t going to be sufficient.
As far as I know, no fascist has ever apologized for being wrong.
Winston……Please add: nonexistent “man-made” climate changeThanks
No question. They WILL turn out to be false.
We all know that Greta like Joan of Arc is just used as cannon fodder by those in power to seek more power.
We should stop attacking the wrong persons. Follow the yellow brick road.
When facts fail, switch to emotion. However this strategy on the part of some Alarmists can backfire, for emotion is connected to the heart, which is affected by Truth.
The “movement” Joan of Arc headed moved in ways that made both the Royalty and Church uneasy on both the English and French sides; the tears shed were largely crocodile tears, when she was burned at the stake.
Can’t Understand Normal Thinking . Just saying.
Gretta’s looking to steal Zuckerberg’s dreams? (presumably to replace those stolen by her parents and Alfonse Gore). Seriously though – poor, manipulated kid. There’s no happy ending for her. Either she cracks because no “results” come as a consequence of her self important proclamations; or she learns she’s being played and suddenly trusts no one and isolates herself. It seems in either case (especially given her emotional issues) she cracks. And something bad will happen then. Poor kid.
Those conclusions assume Miss Thunberg to be unaware she plays a role in a farce. Given the family’s acting history, that assumption may prove false.
Orwell was right once again. “The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.”
The whole world is deluded on the climate issue, and only a few are enlightened. Once I didn’t worry about AGW; now I know I have nothing to worry about.
Except disastrous energy-poverty policies that will lead to unemployment, suffering, and death.
It takes a young Swedish girl to catch a young Swedish girl:
Greta is not writing those posts. I don’t think she is capable of such mature prose. IMHO
Thought this might be food for thought.
“Having stumbled across an interview with Greta Thunberg’s captain of the sailing vessel that brought her across to New York, I was very surprised at what he said. He was flying back to Europe from New York and 3 others were flying from Europe to New York to sail the vessel back. So that is four flights to save her one flight. Obviously a PR stunt. But it got me curious as to who the heck was paying for these flights? This is a quick synopsis of what I found out.
1. She is backed by a number of Swedish/Swiss venture/vulture capital funds focused to investing in green technologies which are struggling to find companies to invest in. Most of these companies require initial government funding. The funds are owned by executives from a Swiss/Swedish industrial corporation with annual revenues of 27 billion dollars. You see their offices around Calgary as they are suppliers to the oilfield service industry as well as many others. Clearly this is a ploy to get government grants/ funding for these entities so that the venture capital funds can then invest and make a bunch of money.
2. She was chosen from a number of young Swedish girls to represent their interests, trained and given information to start espousing because of course she has no scientific expertise herself. They wanted a female child as their symbol. She was the perfect spokesperson.
3. A powerhouse marketing firm out of Germany was hired to design and implement a marketing strategy for her to gain worldwide attention. They did and it worked. She gained worldwide attention and addressed the UN. The 500 scientists, from around the world, who sent a letter to the UN did not gain an audience.
4. She slammed my generation and previous generations. We stole her childhood. A script written for her by the German marketing firm. Her childhood is like it is because of the sacrifice of previous generations, many of whom lie buried in fields in Europe.
5. She then gets used again by Canadian political leaders for photo op’s. Shame on our political leaders. The fact that she got face to face time with Trudeau should be abhorrent to Canadians.
6. She leads a school protest march in Canada, where again photo op greedy politicians, take part. Her ability to protest rests solely with the sacrifice of other generations, including Edith Cavell, whom she chastises. If you don’t know who Edith Cavell is – then shame on what a lark our Canadian school system has become.
Excellent, Mr. Shelton. Particularly revealing was “…they are suppliers to the oilfield service industry…” Which revelation is in sync with my post last night (look for it) on Tony’s video, “The Big Switch.”
Interesting that it was a German firm that pumped her propaganda balloon. I’d suspected it might be Hill & Knowlton, who wrote the script “babies pulled out of incubators” for another young girl actor.
Al, thank you for this. I knew in my gut she is a fake, a PR stuntress, being used by powerful people who have, or hope to have, something to gain from it.
(Robert, yours was the one post I read this AM before heading out for a 10 hour work day. Thank you for your perspective.
“Doing a Thunberg”: Wasting everybodies time and resources for nothing. “The climate warrior embarked on a seven week journey by boat to protest the wasting of resources.”
” I find the lack of taking responsibility very disturbing” says Greta.
Yes, Greta, across society;
We have scientists who cherry pick data and blatantly falsify it in a desperate attempt to make it look as if CO2 is evil incarnate – responsible??
We have politicians who pander to “climate change” panickers when many know that climate change is a meaningless term and that CO2 is not proven to cause warming. Responsible?
We have mainstream media not even bothering to fact check anything at all related to “climate change” and spewing out a never ending torrent of lies, falsehoods and wild predictions which never come true. Responsible?
And we have captains of industry attempting to abandon their shareholders and virtue signalling madly to show how “progressive” they are, and implementing climate change policies that will harm their customers and employees, and do nothing for the environment. Responsible?
I agree with you Greta – the total lack of responsibility is very disturbing – of those advocating the “climate change” cause.
One shudders to think what may happen once Greta ceases to be useful to her puppet masters. The end always justifies the means with these people. Perhaps they’ll figure that driving her to a complete mental breakdown or even suicide may help their cause. That would guarantee a Nobel Prize and sainthood as well as – who knows – a “Greta’s Law” to punish all those evil white privileged people who made it inevitable.
Yes, a Joan of Arc self-immolation would be particularly effective.
Please don’t mention a true heroin along with this charlaton. And if you’re not sure which I mean for which, read Mark Twain’s account of Joan D’Arc’s life and death. One of the most remarkable woman of all time.
I am skeptical of the mental illness claims; she has appeared much more to be an actress, to me. But I could be wrong; it would not surprise me that the puppet masters would take an emotional cripple on such a tour, to use her to the end.
Isn’t it strange that all those activist,no matter who or which group,always end up with the exact same “values” and demands.
Be it the Hollywood pricks,Music celebrities,LGTS,leading democrats,or stupid little nobodies turned into Superstars Obamastyle.
Be it gungrabbingOpen Boardersmass immigrationAGWIslamHardcore Socialismetc(most of these “values” and opinions did not exist 1 or 2 decades ago,except global warming,which is pushed for 35 years but noone cared about untilAl Gore got a noble prize and oscar for his mockumentary and it became a must-have opinion for the usual lackeys and oppotunists that way)
and every single one of them is especially focused on destroying free speech and the first amendement.All three main protection system for common people(borders=sovereignity,gunsand free speech)are under permanent attack.And once free speech gets removed any stupidity that gets repeated more than 3 times on TV becomes unwritten pregressive law and cultural norm.
‘if the social media platform refuses to silence her critics.’
If it edits content, it is a publisher, not a ‘platform.’
‘the issues of interfering with democracy’
People put their ideas out, then the people select. Democracy can be improved if some people’s ideas are blocked (?). Hence, as typical with the Left, they don’t care about democracy at all. It is totalist language. They use your love of democracy against you.
‘The constant lies and conspiracy theories about me and countless others, of course, result in hate, death threats and ultimately violence.’
Agreed. She didn’t write this.
By “democracy,” she means the “democratic” system espoused by the German Democratic Republic, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the People’s Democratic Republic of Yemen, and the erstwhile Lao People’s Democratic Republic.
It doesn’t matter. All leftist A-holes think that the 1st amendment only applies to them and not their critics or those they disagree with.
Hey if there are dirtbags with an agenda throwing feces to distract / deflect/ or throw up a repugnant rude straw man then they need to be banned from FB.
Zuckerberg sells ads. Period. The end. That’s all it is – just like goog. So there will be no self regulation if it minimizes revenue even if people like the Swede get bullied by a few dbags – or nation state – with a social media or chatbot swarm.
The internet is still a nasty toilet with no guardrails to prevent robotic manipulation on social media. Free speech is not the point. To try to make it the point of this is a distraction at best, intentional manipulation likely.
Simple rule we should live by: If a human woman or man engages in genuine authentic civil discourse on the internet or social media and the ones who disagree with their argument begin a smear campaign or “publishes” some nasty vile made up bull sht then the offender/s need to be skullfkd. It’s the law.
In the old days (25-30yrs ago) A person with Asperger’s was just plain called Slooooow!? Keep it up Tony!Awesome work.
Oh yeah! Tony! You see this? Greta’s parents family pic.
Useful idiots for for the global Fascists wearing attire that says they are “ANTI-FASCIST”? How Orwellian.
Greta’s quitting Fakebook if deniers aren’t censored?
She-who-claims-to-see-CO2 should not call for fact checking.
I think Facebook will get along just fine without you, Greta. Please leave.
Ok actually just now read about the girl who sees carbon. Wtf. She’ll realize as an adult how silly she was. Fk the poor kid has been deluded by parents and media.
Ok. New rule that will prevent creation of such people, products of the media.
Heretofore, by the power vested in this blog, the USA declares that:
Anyone with an audience – defined by known scientific, business, political, social media, celebrity, public figure, esports gamer w/shitons of followers etc, – who make end of world predictions without science based proof- gets fined a lot of fkn money. Repeat offenders get jail time.
(Moneys collected pay for really cool social program or something like Vegas trips / hookers n blow for chill bro’s)
That is all.
