Greta Needs a Chill Pill and a History Lesson

Why is it that doomsday cult worshipers like Greta Thunberg are so intent on destroying capitalism, when capitalism is the world’s only self-sustaining economic system?

Wouldn’t you think with capitalism being a renewable source of economic energy that Gaia worshipers would be big fans? But they’re not, and here’s why:

Climate activism is all about control: what people drive, how energy efficient their homes are, what they eat, which products they use, what clothes they wear – and in the case of Joaquin Phoenix, how often they dry clean their tux.

In short, weather cultists like Saint Greta want to take away individual freedoms for the collective good.  Sound familiar?

Obviously names like Mao Zedong, Karl Marx, and Kim Il-Sung mean nothing to these carbon credit kiddie commandos.  I’d suggest they step away from their junk science whining points and consider reading a little history.

Swedish climate teen Greta Thunberg is a prominent leader in the “We’re-all-going-to-die-because-of-fossil-fuels-and-steak-buffets” parade.   Thunberg was recently named Time’s Person of the Year but even more notably, was mentioned in this space last fall in Left Wingers Have Finally Lost It.

After castigating a UN Assembly last September in her infamous “How Dare You” speech (“You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.  How dare you!”), lovable Greta is back with more demands, more ranting and more threats in an editorial addressing the upcoming 50th anniversary of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland later this month.

In The Guardian editorial January 10 she wrote, “We demand that at this year’s forum, participants from all companies, banks, institutions and governments immediately halt all investments in fossil fuel exploration and extraction, immediately end all fossil fuel subsidies and immediately and completely divest from fossil fuels.”

Is that all?  Of course not. The persnickety Swede wasn’t done yet.  She also demanded the evil doers comply – now!

“We don’t want these things done by 2050, 2030, or even 2021, we want this done now – as in right now,” she bellowed in print – a neat trick she should think of patenting.

Note to Ms. Thunberg:  the world doesn’t revolve around you or any identity politics group.  In the USA it revolves around “We the people.”

And the will of the people is enacted by v-o-t-i-n-g.  Not by fiat, not by bullying, and not by intimidation.

In other words, keep your static socialism, your refusal to allow for dissenting opinions and your my-way-or-the-highway climate activism on your side of the Atlantic.

And for goodness sake, chill out.  Temper tantrums deplete the ozone.

    I am so pleased whenever someone straightens out the facts and turns the tide of sentiment when it threatens our way of life based upon truth, justice and the American Way, there is no better place for me to find that cure than here at Dean Riffs. While I stand in support of Greta’s right to speak her mind, what comes out of her mouth is canned ‘carbon credit commando’ contributory brainwashed negligence of the truth =’junk science.’ This is how it starts, with an idea as inane as stop everything and let us control you. Problem is, the stupidity grows and no one remembers the initial why or how… Chill out, Dude!

    • Thanks for reading and for your astute comment, Chill. Really well said, amigo. The travesty in Greta Thunberg’s story is the adults surrounding her are using her to score political points, but what happens to her when her speeches, tirades and tantrums grow stale? As the meme included in the post states, she can blame fossil fuel executives and climate change deniers all she wants for robbing her of her childhood, but the real villains are those who have used her during her teen years and made her a political pawn to promote the same old socialist message in new packaging.

  2. Apparently Gateway Pundit has an auto-timeout enabled and I had too many links in this so I guess my reply will be here and not disqus, lol.
    It also doesn’t tell me how long a ‘timeout’ even is, very helpful Disqus.

    “You know what it reminds me of, how so many billed Black Panther as “The first black superhero movie” when there was already Steel, Spawn, Meteor Man, and Blade.
    They have to continually ‘destroy’ their own history so each new outrage peddler can claim to be the sole enlightened guru everyone should follow. You ask any of these environmental fearmongers and they won’t be able to name anyone that gave the movement its foundation, like Peter Singer or Robin Webb. They need to be able to present it to the ‘unenlightened masses’ as an Urgent Crisis, which you really can’t if someone can point out they’ve been ‘fighting’ the same climate change (or racism, or sexism, etc) fight for 60+ years

    On a related note, another thing that’s repeating is the ‘deplatforming on campuses’
    Haeckel wasn’t a super aggressive radical himself, but he wound up creating hordes of hateful little ‘gretas’ of his own.
    It’s not in that writeup linked above, but one incident that always stuck with me from a book about Riehl I read awhile ago was that he encouraged his own students to defenestrate from the third floor of Munich one of their peers who continually questioned the university’s ‘ecological orthodoxy,’ what he considered as we’d call it now “settled science.”
    The climate changers aren’t back to that point YET (though Greta is certainly encouraging it, and they have ‘edged’ it once before ) but we’ve definitely seen mass incidents on that tier of radicalism already from the Alphabet Soup Troupe, like the armed takeover of Evergreen.

    And like the Eco-warriors of the 1800s and early 1900s, eventually old “progressive” standards look and sound like “outdated conservative theocracy” to the newer inductees’ ever more unreasonable standards. Eventually they get placed on the side of “the enemy” and regarded as either “capitalist apologists” or “counterrevolutionary traitors.” The revolution must continue!

    Which if you’ve read any fringe leftist sources in the past few years, is already in full swing in the Not-so-United Sanders Soviet Republic.
    Man isn’t even close to being president yet, and they’re already trying to purge one another!”

    also while I was waiting to see if the timeout would end before the end of the day, I remembered there’s a book that talks about these equally ‘angry youths’ and their conduct during the 70s, which has been forgotten by wide swaths of the population, even in the wake of ‘Obomba’ pardoning one of their most successful bombers on the way out.
    Sounds quite a bit like those “Antifa” idiots, don’t it! If they had a bit more competence, at any rate.

    • You make some excellent points, Vinz. Sadly, America is paying the price for abdicating the education of our youth to those who know spoon feeding them a steady diet of eco-crisis’s, socialism and anti-American nutrients infects the national organism. Thanks for reading, for sharing the links and taking the time to comment!
