All the way from Sweden sailed young saint, Greta Thunberg. She toiled the high seas all the way to the U.S.A. to give Democrats and anyone who would listen a piece of her mind on Climate Change. I know. Oh, yay.
On Capital Hill yesterday, Senate Democrats were throwing themselves at Thunberg and her young, activist posse:
We need your leadership. Young people are the army.” Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA and author of the Green New Deal Resolution)
Thunberg will “take to the streets” with her megaphone and a bunch of others- young and old-in a massive Climate Strike on Friday. From Vox:
Thunberg has become an increasingly influential figurehead and voice for youth climate angst and activism. Since she no longer flies because of the aviation industry’s high carbon emissions, she was offered the opportunity to travel to the US on a zero-emissions sailboat.”
Actually, Greta does fly. And so does the crew that has been designated to bring the boat back, Vox. Young Miss Thunberg is not swimming across the Atlantic nor is she taking some fictional, high-speed, trans-oceanic railway. No jumping on the back of a mythical, non-farting unicorn to Sweden, either. Thunberg’s got to get back somehow. When she does, she then can flight shame all she wants.
To some, Greta Thunberg is a petulant little brat. Again, don’t blame the young woman for this, blame her parents and other enabling adults. To others, she is a saint….no…wait…she’s Jesus!
You think you will recognize Jesus when he comes back? He is this girl. And y’all don’t even see it. https://t.co/TAB5YafOQ0

Ummm, no, Sarah Silverman, she is NOT Jesus. This from the woman who makes fun of Jesus every moment she gets in a sick and desperate attempt at humor. Moving right along to the “star” of the show, the “superpower” (yes, that’s what Vox called her) at shaming adults, Greta Thunberg, who scolded Democrats yesterday:
Please save your praise, we don’t want it. Don’t invite us here to tell us how inspiring we are without doing anything about it. We don’t want to be invited to these kinds of meetings because, honestly, they don’t lead to anything.”-Greta Thunberg
Really, you little snot nose? Then don’t charter a multi-million dollar yacht to come here! Don’t waste jet fuel by flying out a crew to sail said yacht back across the pond. If you say you’re anti-airplane, then be anti-airplane and have this discussion with lawmakers via a damn Skype meeting. Technology is awesome, isn’t it? Use it. Save the whales.
Meanwhile, Democrats are squirming, saying their “hands are tied” on Climate policies because of…you guessed it…Trump. But they see young voters, potential voters before their eyes. So, will they kowtow to Greta and friends? Absolutely! And will liberal media outlets eat this up like a kale and quinoa salad (no offense to a good kale and quinoa salad)? You had better believe it.
If you want advice for what you should do, invite scientists, ask scientists for their expertise. We don’t want to be heard. We want the science to be heard. I know you are trying but just not hard enough. Sorry.”-Greta Thunberg
Kids will skip school on Friday in the name of science and our environment and take videos and photos on their latest phones because all of those batteries don’t do the environment any damage, do they? Nah. And Saint Greta will continue to pout and shame the adults while they cater to her every whim and hang on her every word. Does this sound like every parent’s nightmare or is it just me? En route back to Sweden, some poor, schmo airline pilots and flight attendants will make sure her trans-Atlantic flight is as comfortable and as safe as possible. You’re welcome, Greta.
