She was named Time’s Person of the Year. And rightfully so, in my opinion.

And of course, Trump couldn’t handle her getting the recognition he constantly craves. And for something he is in denial over at that (human caused climate change). So he had to disparage her on a public platform like a high schooler scorned in drama.

A 16 year old girl.

Should she get the "I am a 16 year old mentally unstable girl" pass when making bold proclamations about assassinating political opponents (that unfortunate "up against the wall" comment)? In fact, should she get that pass at all? I say no. If she is too young to handle criticism she's far too young to speak about weighty issues.

What's that saying about having your cake and eating it?

Still, she has joined that lofty group of leftist "Person of the Year" recipients that features Hitler and Stalin. Good for her... I guess...?

Alright, so I haven't been watching the news often, but I am curious about what she has been doing. I asked on Social Media (Facebook) and people immediately got upset that I asked. The only thing I have seen was her speech at the UN and a few memes attacking her. I want to know is what she is currently doing and her accomplishments. Congrats to her on the achievement.

I saw her video, when came out, I thought it was ok. if more people had the courage and make a commitment to what they believe. that greta would not a big deal in news.

The mother of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was 14 when she was immaculately conceived. We simply must not ignore the plea from our next generation.

From the mouth of babes, right?

Luke 1:46 reminds us of her heart cry. Read it when you get a chainch. (just in time for Christmas!)

And now ladies and gentlemen here's a song about teaching your kids:

Nope. Which is why she addressed it.

In case you missed it:

‘“That's what happens when you improvise speeches in a second language. But of course I apologise if anyone misunderstood this,’ Thunberg wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

“The expression “putting someone against the wall” in Swedish describes a situation when someone is forced to address difficult questions or a difficult situation.

“But some right-wing voices on social media interpreted her comment as a call for violence against politicians.”

- source

Now, you can do one of two things here Bob. You can either accept this perfectly understandable explanation, or you can join the ranks of the twitchy, hypersensitive, bellyaching, politically correct, faultfinders that treat outrage like candy over every little thing anyone says, even when faced with as obvious misinterpretation as this one. (You know.... the very types of people you yourself despise. )

I don’t understand why people got upset with you, but probably the best way to answer your question is to simply direct you to her Wikipedia page: Greta Thunberg

I bet they don't spend 100's of hours a week on twitter whining and complaining about anything and everything, blaming and/or insulting anyone and everyone else for their own failings, etc... etc...

For me, the fact that he is an adult male that acts worse than a four year old suped up on sugar and Mountain Dew wavering between acting like a school yard bully and having pathetic tantrums makes him worse. After all, children can be put in timeout or put to bed... after which they (at least usually) gain control of themselves... and, of course, little children haven't had the opportunity to display cowardice by dodging a draft...

...etc...

But of course I get you point, and it is valid.

I guess above in leo's statement's post with her video. that is really first time, I saw her do her thing.

her video remind of " wag the dog ' how our government use the sympathy card, and fake war scene and having a little girl in the middle of war scene as bait to draw in the audience.

greta tell like it is, and bozo and the government use anything to cover a bad snow job to public, that climate change to fix it, that corporations will lose too much money to help out.

greta played a good trump ( sort of speak ), when she said more people try to save a person getting hit by a car, than stand there and do nothing.

Thanks for the information. I don't see any way that she isn't a powerful influence on the current living generations, as well as future generations. She lost me with the stop eating meat part. As for the attacks and harsh criticisms on her, it is a shame that political leaders will stoop low to bash her, but it comes with the territory I guess. That is something that she has to face as a leader. In a sense, I can see why she is worried. She can possibly make a positive change. One challenge is getting others (within the older generations and not just political leaders) on board.
