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.

Left Wingers Have Finally Lost It

Dimwits, dolts or dullards? Take your pick and pin the tail on the donkey of the Democrat leadership, The Squad,  and the party’s 2020 train wreck of presidential political candidates.

Left Losing It #1  Teen Swedish weather cultist Greta Thunberg recently addressed a UN Assembly to discuss climate change and proceeded to acid rain on the gathering’s parade by blaming and threatening international leaders for not doing enough on climate change.

Other than lambasting world leaders for their selfishness and greed, young Greta was a sweetheart.

At one point during her speech she whined, “This is all wrong.  I shouldn’t be up here.  I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean.”

On that point we agreed; she shouldn’t have been there. She should have been in school.  Studying real science.  And Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations.

According to the 16-year-old Swede whose challenges with Asperger’s Syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder and attention deficit disorder are well documented, “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.  How dare you!”

She concluded her “pep talk” with these foreboding words:

“We will not let you get away with this.  Right here, right now is where we draw the line.  The world is waking up.  And change is coming, whether you like it or not.”

Using a mentally-challenged teenager schooled on junk science for the purpose of overthrowing the world’s best economic system, and bullying people into submission, is like strapping explosives to Palestinian teens, encouraging them to blow up Jews and then applauding their commitment to population control.

Left Losing It #2

In Episode #478 of the Democrat Impeachment Chronicles the wayward party of Jefferson struck on a new strategy to get Orange Man Bad: use a faux whistle blower to accuse him of colluding with a foreign country to provide dirt on a campaign opponent.

And surprise – the foreign country wasn’t Russia.  That’s a new wrinkle.

The Deep State’s latest scheme was working well until it was learned that:

  • The whistleblower wasn’t in the room during the president’s phone call
  • The whistleblower hadn’t seen the transcript of what was said during the president’s phone call until it was made public
  • The whistleblower is believed to have worked for the CIA
  • The whistleblower’s attorney had worked for both Chuck-it-All Schumer and Hillary Clinton
  • The whistleblower’s lead attorney had contributed to hair sniffer Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

But it gets better.  Nancy Pelosi announced Sept 24 the Democrats were doing a remake of the Seinfeld show – they planned to launch an official impeachment inquiry based on nothing.

Pelosi pulled the trigger on the Democrat impeachment gun before seeing the transcript of the president’s phone call, without seeing the Inspector General’s report, without hearing from the whistleblower, without questioning a single witness and – without any credible evidence of an impeachable offense.

At last count 220 Democrats and one independent support impeaching the president.  For what offense?

Asking the newly-elected Ukrainian president for his country’s help in investigating their country’s interference in America’s 2016 presidential election and former Vice-President Joe Biden’s threat to withhold one billion dollars of U.S. aid to keep his son from being prosecuted in a corruption probe and maintain his $50,000 monthly income.

Time will tell, but the smart money is saying the impeachment shoe is on the wrong party’s foot.
