Dayum... so many people. I don’t think there has ever been ao many people on the streets of New York before. This must be world record.

http://www...today-2019-09-20-live-updates/

Greta Thunberg tweeted the New York City strike is "looking huge" and posted a photo of packed streets in Lower Manhattan. She is expected to speak at the rally later Friday.

Demostrators held signs that read "climate change is real"; "there is no Planet B": and "if you did your job, we would be in school."

Manhattan borough president Gale Brewster tweeted video showing protesters filling the streets from Foley Square to Centre Street and Chambers Street and across Broadway.

Brewster is one of a number of local New York City elected officials who were attending the strike, which took place outside City Hall. New York City Council speaker Corey Johnson tweeted he had "never seen so many people before. So inspired by these young people! There are people as far as you can see!"

Greta has inspired millions of people from all around the world to unite for the climate. Even in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

When did this happen last time? Not even Jesus Christ could reach out to Pakistan!!

You can literally see how @GretaThunberg can’t understand how the chairman of the committee on climate change can ask her such a stupid question:

“Why should we listen to the science?”

This is from today’s testimony in Congress by four young climate activists.

Quoting Eddie Cochran:

I'm gonna take two weeks
Gonna have a fine vacation
I'm gonna take my problem
To the United Nations

Well, I called my congressman
And he said, quote:
"I'd like to help you, son
But you're too young to vote"

Sometimes I wonder
What I'm a-gonna do
But there ain't no cure

Good to see Greta Van Susteren inspiring all these kids to accept an excused absence. Rita van Hayworth is truly a memorable activist, and I hope this can turn more attention to Rita Moreno’s film career or at the very least increase tourism to Moreno Valley. Seeing all of those people in the streets truly makes one appreciate that there are far too many people in NYC, which is an important talking point of Valley Kilmer’s character in “Top Secret”, which this event was ultimately promoting.

Get out of your bubbles, cuckservatives!! Eta Tunafish is super relevant. There was a *rally*, didn't you consume the coverage? It was about like, issues. Here's an excerpt from the interview with Ygritte Thunder: "We have to end apartheid for one. And slow down the nuclear arms race, stop terrorism and world hunger. We have to provide food and shelter for the homeless and oppose racial discrimination and promote civil rights, while also promoting equal rights for women. We have to encourage a return to traditional moral values. Most importantly, we have to promote general social concern and less materialism in young people."

Powerful stuff.

SURPRISE! The Official Escort for 16-Year-Old Global Warming ‘Expert’ Greta Thunberg Is a Leftist Hack Funded by George Soros Org. — The Gateway Pundit

http://tru...amp/?__twitter_impression=true

Could it be? Have we reached a point where Paramount is finally casting aside his rampant anti-Semitism? Where Paramount is finally learning how to throw his support behind a puppet of the Jews?

This is a potentially huge development. Can we trust Paramount to start supporting pro-Jewish policies? Can we trust him to support, dare I say it, pro Israel policies? If we can find a mentally retarded Swedish teenager to support Israeli annexation of the West Bank, will Paramount support it as well?

Here's just one example:

" Park Slope Elementary Will Have Its Own March For Climate Strike

Students from P.S. 321 will march on Seventh Avenue on Friday morning in support of the youth-led "Climate Strike" in Manhattan.

PARK SLOPE, BROOKLYN — A local elementary school is planning their own take on the youth-led "Climate Strike" that will descend on Foley Square on Friday, the principal said in a letter to parents last week.

Students at P.S. 321, a kindergarten through fifth grade school on Seventh Avenue, will take a march down the street with signs for their own version of the Sept. 20 Climate Strike which is expected to draw a huge crowd to Foley Square joining similar rallies across the world coinciding with the United Nations General Assembly.

The kids have been learning about global warming in their classes all week to prepare for the school-wide activity, principal Liz Phillips told parents. The lessons and the local march will help the younger students participate in the youth-led day of climate change action in an age-appropriate way, Phillips said."

Bad acting on the level of an “emotional” Jon Stewart and reminiscent of the artifice of that kid comedian who reads her dad’s jokes. It’s all the more hilarious that she was given a platform and led with a Panoptic statement. Social media is a failed experiment.

Greta has met the Pope, Obama, Macron.... all the world leaders, and thousands of people. And millions of people support her and everyone is telling her that she is ”doing the right thing” and ”keep going” etc.

Is is plausible that all the attention and the support that she has got has affected her. She’s been told that she is doing the right thing. She is also backed by science. So when she gets to talk to the world is only natural for her to ”attack” the science- and climate change deniers.

She is relying on what the scientists are saying. It is the scientists who are saying that we are heading for an extinction. Greta is only forwarding that message. She does not mistrust science. She can not comprehend that there are science-deniers. With all of this mind – this speech of her makes sense.

So if you are saying that she is leading a Doomsday Cult you should go and talk with the leading scientists instead and explain it to them.

The one constant of conservative "media" is climate-change denial because it is almost entirely funded by the Kochs and fossil fuel interests with some random crazy-ass Mercer money. Real conservatives can think about it and see that it's not really a left or right issue at all: it's just science.

But there is no conservative movement anymore. It's just low-IQ reactionaries in their social media echo chambers.

"Dipshit, no one denies the climate changes."

You know full well it would be really easy to pull up a bunch of sources of conservatives doing exactly that. But who cares.

"We question (omg, to question things) if it is humans causing it"

Also stupid. Humanity has had a huge and demonstrable impact. The fact that something changes in any case does not prove that you did not change it. This should be obvious.


Questioning the gravity of the consequences and if they warrant sweeping changes to society is the only sensible refuge. Which is actually an interesting topic.

“With all of this mind – this speech of her makes sense.“

It makes sense that she’s a puppet, yes. All of those people talk in her ear and use her as a pathos argument — an emotional face to sell their own perspectives. They award her as she mirrors their opinions. She herself is meaningless; she’s a teenager whose life has been hijacked. Does it seriously make sense to any thinking person to suddenly drop all the arguments because a teenager is crying? (Or pretending to cry, since she’s not a good actress.) Is she even some kind of out-of-this-world genius who has completed multiple PhD degrees at a young age; or, is she some kid who read a bunch of pop-science blogs, agreed with popular-alarmist opinions, and gained a visibility that could be manipulated for the benefit of her handlers? It’s the latter, which makes Gene Tierney‘s name and messages spectacularly unimportant.

Puppet or influencer. So if we assume that she is an influencer, what does it matter? That’s the whole point. She wants to inspire people to act to save the planet.

There are also a lot of corporations who are using young people to promote their products. I doubt Greta is getting paid, though, like other influensers ...i mean puppets, who gets paid to promote a message, a life style, or a product. Greta do this because she herself believes that more must be done for the climate. At the most, maybe some people are paying for her travel expenses.

lol, thank you for making my point about what a bag of shit Frito Tostitos is :D — social media "influencers" are one of the lowest of the lows in the Internet shit show. It's vanity-casting to bait the lowest common denominator of fish. These are the Kendall Jenners; these people pose and falsify, collect subscribers, and offload the messages of their corporate overlords.

"[By the way, this natural-look make-up is by Revlon. Please enjoy my GQ cover (buy GQ! A magazine printed on high-quality paper!). I traveled via the Malizia II, which is "carbon neutral" (once it's been constructed, at least — it sure as fuck cost a lot of carbon to be made). It only costs an easy 1.5 million USD to be as carbon neutral as I was on this trip, which should send a positive message to other teens that all they need to do to be carbon neutral is say what your ultra-rich overlords want you to say and hope that they can lend you their private yachts. Famous comedian Arnold Braunschweiger will also be giving me free stuff, and I'm a fucking nobody from Sweden! It's great! ♫ Sell out! With me, oh yeah, sell out! With me tonight! ♫"

..
[CC] "She herself is meaningless"
[Paramount]: "I don’t think so. She has inspired millions of people from all the around the world. I think she means a lot to a lot of people."

"Inspiring" people on the Internet is what fat people who lost 5 pounds of water weight over the weekend do on Facebook. It doesn't negate the status of the useless person who found a popular message; what makes her a puppet isn't negated by her "inspirational" position. What makes her a puppet is that she doesn't even have a message with an edge or any kind of original thought. She is an ingénue for climate Harvey Weinsteins to parade around their parties; feigning purity of thought while reading their lines, speaking their messages, and claiming the importance of obeying their positions. Would she tell other teens to stop upgrading their cell phones every year? Would she tell them to take direct action instead of embracing the Panopticism of the social media lynch mob? Nope! Just get selected like an American Idol contestant. *That* is truly "inspirational" to a mob of would-be heroes. Let those with money tell you your worth to the world.

Having a 16 year old girl with autism and a history of anxiety attacks as some inspirational role model or "influencer" to solve complex global problems is not healthy nor advisable. When she tells you to panic and give simpelton solutions you know where it comes from. It comes from the brain of a 16 year old girl with autism and a history of anxiety attacks prepped by a team of climatards.

”Normal people dont ruin their lives over obsessing about melting polar ice caps or CO2 emissions.”

Her life is hardly destroyed because she skipped school for a few months. She’s 16 and have all the time to catch up.

But she was correct though, if the adults had done something for the climate earlier then she could have skipped striking for the climate.

Technically, she is diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. For her it means (she said) that she has a social phobia, she is a shy person and she does not like to talk in front of many people.

An unfounded accusation that I'm "siding" with anyone simply by stating that Greta operates better than someone with full blown autism (which appears to be true; she is not fully autistic). It also assumes that I'm something approving the manipulation of an autistic child for some grand scheme I haven't offered any support to only because I pointed out that she probably wasn't fully autistic (which, again, appears to be correct).

So I'm psycho because you exploded with unfounded accusations and emotion simply because I pointed out that this girl wasn't fully autistic? Or am I a psycho because I defended the actual words I actually said from your imagined slights? Or am I a psycho because I don't really pay attention to or put much stock into a girl from another continent going on a world tour to support a cause she truly believe in?

Did it ever occur to you, in your small and shallow mind, that this tour could actually be helping her? That it could be soothing the chaos inside of her that fixates on global warming? Likely not, as you view mental disability like it's the same as being paralyzed.

"What effects on politics?" Asked the psycho who apparently doesnt want to admit how much this autistic child has had an impact on political discussions. She only spoke at the UN.

"She only spoke at the UN."

Since when did you give a shit about the UN? Now that it's (not actually) valid to your point?

I ask again, what actual effect has she had on politics? Have any policies been changed? Has anyone actually done anything? Have any opinions been swayed? Or is she just a fancy prop?

Oh you idiot... there is a difference between giving a shit about the UN and acknowledging that speakers there get news coverage and attention. And you double down on your idoicy. You expect policy changes on the week since she spoke? Hood, shut the fuck up or admit its fucked up to use an autistic child to push a political agenda.

"Hood, shut the fuck up or admit its fucked up to use an autistic child to push a political agenda."

It's really hard to take you seriously considering the current US president. Do you actually give two shits? Or is it only because she's voicing opinions you don't like?


"acknowledging that speakers there get news coverage and attention"

Coverage and attention does not equal any noticeable change in opinion or policy. Nobody is changing their opinions over Greta. Nobody is reshaping policy proposals over her.

From your article:
"In the two years since the 33-year-old Kurz won his last national election, global warming rose 11 percentage points to become the top concern in the minds of Austrians, according to the latest Eurobarometer data. That’s about the same increase in support Austria’s Green Party received on Sunday."

AKA, you're fucking stupid and the article's title lied to you. Try reading once or twice.

So you think there is no connection despite widespread media coverage and people explicitly stating she inspired them? Are you that fucking stubborn?

Data > anecdotes. The emotionally irrational (colloquially referred to as retards) will hook onto anecdotes like randos claiming some teenager inspired their vote. People who aren't intellectually crippled will actually accept what data tells them even if it doesn't support their previously held notions.

The data says this outcome had been coming for 2 years. One whiny illegal claims a 16 year old girl is changing the course of history. And yet I'm the crazy one?

"She only spoke at the UN." She wasn't the only one, there had been others in the past. This isn't "groundbreaking." But just another movement to bring awareness and if isn't so much targeted in charger now, but maybe an inspiration who are coming up.

If you want to see when coverage occurred with others over the years, starting back in the late 80s, I believe. Maybe it would shed some light on your incredible ignorance and you jumping on the bandwagon to bash the girl think that she is mentally handicapped.

I guess these people are just incapable of making a difference, or doing anything with their lives because of their "handicap."

I share this in hopes this inspires you reach your goals. But it is remarkable that you are still a pizza delivery driver after 20 years.

How do you know that those people where not already on a trajectory to become climatards or that they will keep being one? One thing I am very sure of is that Greta has not and will not act as some unifying movement. She has since the early weeks here in Sweden unfortunately acted as divider and increased the polarization on the issue. And it only gets worse as it goes on, that is unfortunate since climate and environmental issues are very important.

40+ year old men have a hard time accepting that a girl tells them what needs to be done.

No one should accept stupid advice regardless the age of the person giving them.

Oh noes! Putin basically made an argument similar to mine: she is being used by her handlers as a pathos argument. Maybe I’m a Russian bot D:

How about posting the rest of that?
“Putin said young people who paid attention to environmental issues should be supported, adding: “But when someone is using children and teenagers in personal interests, it only deserves to be condemned.

“I’m sure that Greta is a kind and very sincere girl. But adults must do everything not to bring teenagers and children into some extreme situations.””

Talking about the environment and bringing awareness about climate change; so, so extreme.

It honestly doesn't matter, because they are young people or teens and if they stand out to bring awareness about any subject matter. There are always about to be a core of people with their skepticism or cynicism about them. "they are a puppet," "being used by others or a prop." Then you have a forum in the butthole of the internetverse with forum participants butthurt over the concept of this. Even if it wasn't a young person that was being used as the mascot.

But that is the thing, they are used as a "mascot" because it is grabbing attention, but maybe for the time and should it really be that bothersome to you. And like earlier as pointed out, has it really changed the minds and caused immediate change.

Point is, you get people bent out of shape either in support or against. And it seemingly appears that the ones getting more bent out of shape are the adults "oooh she just a young girl, ooooh she has some type of mental disorder, ooh this means she is incompetent and is unable to think for herself."

But what really is sad about this whole mess and Nim referred to it, that a serious subject matter appears to be overlooked because of the messenger. (which could be a factor, but should it matter?)

Well you basically already said ”the rest of that” when you said that Putin made an argument similar to yours. So all I wanted to do was to post the rest of what he said :)
