She's not just a young woman.

She is an adult and a political activist that talks to us and addresses different social, economical issues at us .

In a democratic society we have the right to express our opinion when it comes to a political figure, personality, militant etc...

How pathetic, a bunch of seemingly well-educated adults making fun of a teenage girl.

Triggered, are you?

It never gets old

Ridicule and expressing an opinion are not the same thing.

I see that LIB has been relieved of his/her mod duties (hallelujah) and been replace by OG ().

edit: oops, not officially announced yet. Hope I didn't jump the gun.
Stay tuned.

And she is not just some random young woman but she has been used as an icon for many things that one can legitimately take issue with. Her face has become associated with one of the greatest astroturf campaigns of recent history.

Does that not make her fair game for a little bit of cynical humour?

Cynical humor implies cynicism and fun. If only we got these instead of conspiracy theories attributing magical powers to a social media figure...which no one cares about anymore.

She’s so young and incredibly courageous. She also has Asperger’s syndrome.

So no, I think it’s in poor taste. Much like Trump making fun of a handicapped reporter. It shouldn’t be done, especially on a public board.

Re: Board whiteout ?? Reddit ??

She is not couragous or intelligent or anything... Just a marketing tool.

Just like that she was on a strike, not going to school...but sitting in front of the parliament and just like that by accident Ingmar Rentzhog ironically they call themsleves "eco-warriors" who is in charge of a big NGO that has support of the richest of rich scandianvians that are also on the board of the Al Gore's "we dont have time" ....

So this green imperialism that they've come up with ... made the "eco-warriors" like Greta , Ingmar... and people are naive enough to think how "oh it is so sweet that they want to take care of the planet"

Can you imagine the brutal cynicism for the real ecological journalists, militants who are constantly been beaten up by the police, taken in jail... serving jail (because they were protesting and fighting with the police) .. and now you have this puppet dolls behind them there are people with $$$$$$$$$$

and how does it end? Yes, we have no right to joke about them or anything . Cool no ?

haha, triggered by a marketing tool. If you see it effectively as an empty marketing tool, why bother?

Also, what other marketing tools make you upset?

Unmm, she's been an adult for nearly a year now, so hardly a "teenage girl".

Actually, that was part of the plan. Greta to be with autistic spectrum.. so people cant really criticise

and it worked well... the carbon tax went so smoothly in Germany, done deal
pilatus, komsomolez...... I am quoting myself here.. And you can see how I am not saying how she fakes her autism but how she was recruited for that exact reason ...(among others probably or not)

Is it clear now? but what a gentleman play from komsomolez to tell someone "you are full of shit" for no reason . I guess I can do the same in the next few days when what someone says something, that I sort of dislike ... ?

Double warning against arachides? Love the wasabi ones, with no warning, par contraire.
