    Yes, and it’s curious to me that I have Indian and African friends with such memories who will still wake up and kiss the ground they are on whilst our ‘educated’ youth sip champagne snort coke and whine about how meat is murder and that we are living in the worst of times.
    The worthy will push on.

    It has been well known that Greta Thunberg had severe depression issues. Her parents supported her activism as “medicine” for her depression. The Telegraph has revealed that this child has been really abused and exploited by Greenpeace’s Jennifer Morgan and Al Gore. Her father, Svante Thunberg, publicly acknowledges that he and his wife were “not climate activists” but made radical green changes to their lives as they saw the impact it had on their daughter’s mental health.

    She's also a hypocrite that gives more of a dam about her famous ego now then saving the planet. Actions speak louder then words.

    This thread is dangerously close to oblivion. 20 pages of grown men attacking a 16 year old girl and now we're doing Hitler memes?

    I've been to Auschwitz a few times as a tourist guide and was able to see what Hitler has done to many people. To compare someone-16 year girl to Hitler is something over the top-that's my 2c...

    HOW DARE YOU! :D

    I think that entering the public stage spewing propaganda deserves criticism. Especially if they're not willing to engage in a debate and instead push the far lefts narrative of a looming climate catastrophe without the substance to back it up.

    If someone puts themselves into the public spotlight re ie continuous TV / web coverage, UN speech, photo ops with world politicians (current and former) and celebs to promote their cause, then regardless of age, gender / other, then that person is fair game re criticism of their views and how they present them....it's not a one way street.

    To be fair, there are posts in this thread that are critical of Greta's parents for letting / putting her in this position, and those are valid questions to be asked and comments to be made.

    Greta also said in December 2019 "We will make sure they, that we put them against the wall,.....". Yes Greta did clarify her comments as a poor translation from the Swedish to English.....but regardless of such explanations Greta showed an uncompromising position, and her comments invoked historical references to those societies where debate and opposition opinion were crushed with force...I likened the use of Greta to Mao's Chinese Cultural Revolution of the 1960-70's re the use of youth of a country to assist change through fear and force. No different to that of the 1930's German Hitler Youth....thus the linkage of Greta to Hitler runs in the same vein of past tyrants and their methods...thus the comparisons.

    It’s 2020 why are we assuming gender and reinforcing ageist identity politics :D:p
    Alexander The Great was tutored by Aristotle until age 16, after which he conquered the modern world in his 20’s. Thunberg The Great is coming of age!

    I want to 1st say thanks for providing us this website and being as tolerant of the range of opposing opinions discussed here
    With regards to Greta i think it important to divorce the fact that she is a 16year old child from the political message that she is being assisted in promoting.
    Instead imagine what level of criticism that you would find acceptable if it was Trump voicing the same opinion in public.
    Because to remove the right of criticism because of who she is will end up with children abused by unscrupulous individuals trying to push an agenda free of opposing opinions.
    Kinda like what is happening now?
